Microsoft is offering you the chance to cruise the streets of Britain in a Ferrari and all you have to do is get more tech skills. Oooooooooh. Nice. The Microsoft Virtual Academy, where Microsoft houses its tech training materials, is running the prize draw for UK residents. To enter you must visit the MVA UK website, here, …
UK residents only.
Bummer. The autobahn system starts just up the road.
Bit pointless getting one of those for a weekend anywhere else......
Windows Live account required
I guess they don't want new accounts:
"We're unable to complete your request
Windows Live ID is experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later."
OK I entered
You can remove the article from the front page now.
They actually have a video to teach you how to enter the promo code when you sign up? I wonder if you get a certificate for doing it correctly....
No, you'll probably get an XBox live achievement for doing it correctly.
Which won't work straight away of course because it's a /special/ achievement and you first need to get yourself an XBox live gold subscription in order to activate it :-)
What's the odds...
..if you win, you can't bang it around the likes of Donnington and Silverston.
UK only - well that's shafted it then...
...won't be able to get any petrol to take it anywhere! Tee hee hee......
"The grand prize is the loan of a Ferrari for a weekend of fun, extravagance and top-level posing."
I read that as top-posting, using the abomination that is MS Outlook.
"Five runners-up will win a Nokia Lumia 800,"
And the next 5 will forced to accept two Nokia Lumia 800s?
News? Or advertising?
I am guessing that MS paid for this article :)
Still, I signed up, it is about the only training I will get at our place this year, despite being expected to upgrade all our desktops to Windows 7!
