TechnoBuffalo Defines: Poking

by Emily Price | May 3, 2011May 3, 2011 1:45 pm PST

TechnoBuffalo Defines is a weekly column where we ask you, the TechnoBuffalo readers, to give us your thoughts on a particular topic or word. Each Tuesday we give you guys a new tech term to define, and you give us your best shot at a definition in the comments. The TechnoBuffalo staff then picks our favorites from the mix, post them on Thursdays as a poll, and let you all vote for who you think did the best job of explaining the term to everyone else with the winner scoring a prize!

This weeks term is: Poking

Lots of people “poke” each other on Facebook, but what does all that poking really mean?

This weeks prize is: Speck PixelSkin or PixelSkinHD of your choice (check out the selection on the Speck website)

PixelSkin: With its unique, tactile pixel texture, and soft, “squishy” feel, the PixelSkin is the perfect rubber case for iPhone 4. This is an iPhone skin you’ll want to hold on to: it’s stylish, grippy in-hand and famously protective. Plus it boasts handy touches like rubberized touch-thru button covers and super-convenient cutouts for plug port, camera and hold switch.

PixelSkin HD: Dress your iPhone to impress with PixelSkin HD, iLounge’s iPhone Case of the Year for 2010. This perfectly-pixilated, flexible high-contrast skin case features an eye-catching design, including a shiny polished back with matte pixel overlay to create a sleek, sophisticated, artful and decidedly modern look.

If you win, you can select a PixelSkin or PixelSkinHD for a device of your choosing (no color preference or specials). Case can be shipped to U.S. addresses only.

To make sure we can contact you quickly after you’ve won, please make sure to be signed in via Facebook or Twitter (or leave your Twitter info in your comment) so we can get in touch with you. If you leave a comment and aren’t signed in via Facebook or Twitter, we won’t be able to contact you, and we won’t pick your definition to go on to the next round!

Give us your best shot in the comments, and check back Thursday to see our picks!
