Asus Philippines is having a design contest for their limited edition EEE PC and voting officially started last March 15 and will last until March 25. But as early as today, participants are already complaining of the flawed voting system. BNC user pogitaz reported that a certain entry gained hundreds of votes in just a span of 60 seconds.
Each vote is being counted as 3 votes and anyone can vote as many times as they like. All you need is to enter a name and an email address. Their site lacks email verification. Without this verification, anyone can think of any name and any random email address and the vote will still be counted.
ASUS should stop the voting now before it's too late. The current top entry is fugly and if ASUS does nothing, it would be printed on limited editions of the ASUS EEE PC. Of course the "not-so-deserving" winner will take home a brand new ASUS EEE PC.
I wonder if they're using COMELEC's counting machines :~)
