Google Desktop Gadget Contest



WILL POWER!
Is it just me or are these things just to get you to make them something without really paying you what it's worth?  Seems like if they pay a team of developers they would be spending a bit more than the few grand they pay in prizes.

Yeah, there is that. Realistically, I am not sure how many people will start developing something from scratch just for the contest.  However, if I had already written something, you better believe I would have submitted it for the free t-shirt -- I mean, money, that's right, for the money ;)

This is why EOTI needs to get ourselves some practicum students that we can force to win contests like these on our behalf, and we don't have to pay them. Its the best of both worlds!

Ah, but this could be the foot in the door to Google you've been working on...
