The Slide group within Google has been busy. Disco, the group messaging app, quietly launched back in March. Then last week, Pool Party, a group mobile photo service entered into private beta. And today the team is back again with Prizes, a service that apparently aims to link up people with a problem to those with a solution — for money.
Happy birthday to you!

Day 1 of our contest is over and FlyGirl (a real pilot, apparently), yachris, and Harishio won the headsets. Good on ‘em. But that doesn’t mean you should cry and or whine that the fix is in. In fact, it isn’t in. The fix is decidedly out. Why do I say this? Because another day, another set of winners. Read on for more details. → Read More

Google is sponsoring a $20 million prize to the first group that can drop a robotic spacecraft on the moon. Once its there it has to send video and data back to Earth and move 1500 feet. They expect the contest to end in 2012, just in time for a lame-duck President Obama to send out the first wave of attack ships against in the invading Zixron forces. Team Italia’s solution, shown above… → Read More
Just because 10 Days of CrunchGear is over doesn’t mean we don’t want you to win something great. Your goal is create a cake wishing CG a happy first birthday. I don’t care if it’s a Twinkie with a candle in it — it has to say “Happy Birthday, CG” on it. Heck, throw a little party and take pictures. We love seeing you all in action. You’ll have until… → Read More
OK. Just got a chance to go through all the entries and here are the winners of the final prizes.

One of the better accessory/case-makers, Proporta, needs some help picking a design for it’s Alu-Leather cases. There’s pouch-style where a device slides in and is held entirely or side grip-style where a device is held by two plastic nubs. By heading over to this URL, you can read all about it, cast your vote, and possibly win a prize. There’s five Proporta Gadget Bags with… → Read More
The wait for CES is yawn inducing, but it looms at least. That means no more slow news days; no more staring blankly at my monitor, possibly drooling, waiting for something interesting to happen. It also means that Reader Response is drawing to a close for awhile. Today we’re giving away one Belkin SportCommand. It’s a great device that has completely changed my cycling habits. So who… → Read More
I was supposed to post these last night, but I got wrapped up watching LSU annihilate Notre Dame. Sorry bout that. Anyway, I managed to find two winners for yesterday’s Reader Response at some point after LSU blasted the Irish by nearly 30 points. The prizes, of course, are twoConcealed Surge Protectors from Belkin. → Read More
Happy Jan. 2! You know, I only recently got used to writing 2006—and now it’s 2007. I wonder if I’ll adapt to writing the correct date sometime this side of July. At least on CrunchGear, WordPress handles the date for me. I bet you all are waiting eagerly for your daily winners, which is good, because I have them for you. Two of ‘um. A lucky pair who will each be walking… → Read More
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? → Read More
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 Day. But… → Read More
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 can boot… → Read More
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 jump to… → Read More
