Win! Snow White & The Huntsman Goodie Bags!

The wonderful folk over at Universal Pictures Ireland have given us two Snow White and the Huntsman goodie bags to give away. Each goodie bag contains:

  • an Apple clutch bag
  • a T-Shirt
  • an Apple Charm; and
  • a Huntsman bag

They’ve also sent on the following behind-the-scenes videos. They aren’t too spoiler-y (everybody’s familiar with the basic myth) and are actually quite insightful when on the.

To be in with a chance to win one of the prize packs, fill out the form below.

Technology experts, heads of industry, world leaders, columnists, celebrities… everybody seems to have an opinion or an anecdote about the man who made Apple possible. I honestly don’t feel like there’s too much I can add to a conversation occurring all over the world about a man who revolutionised what we thought was possible in terms of media and connectivity through the iPhone and countless other innovations. Still, I can’t help but think of Pixar when I think of Jobs, and I think the animation studio stands as a testament to one of his innate abilities, one that was just as important as his drive for new ideas and his insights into technology: Jobs had that unique ability to spot and judge potential from a distance, and I think it would be unfair not to consider Pixar when discussing the inventor’s legacy.
