It is hard to get information when technology sites have to live off selling ads in exchange for a set number of awards per year (in all of its five and a half years, Bright Side of News* received plenty of those offers from Far East), or even worse, unmarked advertorials.

As we had promised, we would be giving away two Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1″ tablets thanks to ARM helping us celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We asked you guys to tell us what ARM devices you guys had and to tell us when you would do with your tablet if you won one. Some of you followed directions, some of you didn’t, but what was the most interesting part was that some of you learned that you had ARM-powered devices and didn’t even know it. In fact, ARM devices are not just limited to most mobile (smart and dumb) phones, but also routers and

As promised, we’ve selected the winners for our Nvidia 5th Anniversary Giveaway. This giveaway was the second massive giveaway of our multi-week-long giveaway to commemorate our 5th anniversary as a site. It followed our Thermaltake and Titanfall giveaways. We had over 876 entries in the giveaway and we’ve selected the winners based on their comments, tweets, FB shares and Google+ +1’s.

Now, since we have a global audience we wanted to make sure that this giveaway was available to all of our readers across the world.
