    Google Gets In The Festivus Spirit With Its Latest Holiday Easter Egg

    There’s no question that Google has an affinity for silly easter eggs, but the search giant may have just outdone itself this year. If you have a few seconds to spare today (and look fondly upon kooky 90s sitcoms), do a Google search for “Festivus” and you’ll be treated to that most wondrous of holiday sights: an unadorned aluminum pole running down the side of your list… Read More

    Festivus Contest Day 4: Feats of Strength


    You’ve stuck by us all this time and that $500 prize from Wishpond is one step closer! Judging from the lackluster response so far, clearly people don’t want free money which means there’s a very good chance of winning this thing if you enter. Today’s request is to comment below describing three of your favorite CrunchGear posts from the past year. Simply paste the… Read More

    Five Days of Festivus Contest: Win $500 To Spend On Presents

    Our friends at Wishpond are offering $500 to the winner of this week’s super contest that you can win just by surfing the Internet. That’s right!

    Reader Response: Festivus Week Concludes

    It’s over! Seven days of tenacious commenting; seven days of you readers scrambling for a chance to win a Nikon D40 camera kit. We’ve already given away a bunch of SanDisk Cruzer flash drives as part of our Reader Response Festivus Week, but I imagine today is the day you’ve all been waiting for. So who gets the D40?

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 4


    The sky is falling! Or at least is seems like it. There is some apocalyptic raining goin’ on down here in NOLA. Katrina Deux perhaps. Flooding everywhere. I saw kids paddling canoes down the street through several feet of water. Yea. It was messy. I spent most of the day cowering from rain and thunder—a solid excuse to make some headway in the new Pynchon novel Against the… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 3


    Ah Wednesday, Reader Response Festivus Week moves on bringing us one day closer to Friday; one day closer to that Nikon D40. It also means that today is the first day we’re giving away a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium. I’ve been using a Titanium flash drive for a bunch of months now and I heart it. U3 enabled drives kick major ass. Especially if you use a lot of public terminals. You… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 1


    To think we started CrunchGear just a little over five months ago. Its growth has been quick, and looking across the posts there is a comment on almost every entry. It kind of makes me sentimental when I think of how fast our little site is growing up. Pretty soon it’ll start growing hair in inconvenient places and thinking about other blogs in new ways. I’m preparing myself for… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week


    As I mentioned previously, Reader Response for the coming week is going to be big. Rather than awarding one grand prize on Friday, we’ll be awarding prizes every day next week. And boy are they good prizes. Since Festivus is next week, we’ve decided to pull out all the stops and give away some of our best prizes ever. So good in fact, that you’re going to have to take the… Read More
