There's a contest going on for a week at Betanews (www.betanews.com) called "Name that Seach Engine". Cool prizes are given away to three lucky entries who could give a name to a search engine that will possibly replace Windows Live Search if Microsoft would listen to suggestions.
The mechanics posted by Betanews are quiet simple:
- Along with your name, create a 140-character-or-less tagline, which you would imagine would appear on the front page of the site to replace Windows Live Search, as well as in TV, radio, and Internet display ads.
- Submit your entries in comments to the article - Betanews contest: Re-doing Bing, or, 'Name That Search Engine.
First Prize: The four-disc Batman Begins / Dark Knight Blu-ray combo pack, plus a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate.
Second Prize: A copy of Gears of War II for Xbox 360, plus a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate.
Third Prize: A copy of Office 2007 Home/Student Edition.
My entry is Microsoft© Stearch - "Star of all search engines".
Do you have a bright idea? Join the contest. Who knows you can grab one of the prizes yourself.
