iSkin evo iPod Free Contest

Okay Gear Live readers, it's contest time! I know we haven't had one in a while, so this time we will have multiple winners. What's the prize? Well, iSkin, Inc. has decided to partner up with us and offer the selected winners a free iSkin. Sounds great, right? Not so fast...this one will require you to put your thinking cap on.

Recently, Apple announced the iPod Photo. It's nice and all, but I think the Gear Live readers can do even better than the almighty Steve Jobs. It's your chance to prove me right. Send us your ideas on what you think the next iPod should be like. Send in your mockups, renders, and drawings. Send in your detailed descriptions. Whatever you think it will take to be chosen as a winner, email it to us. There will be more than one winner if we get a bunch of great entries. I am gonna have to cap the number of winners to five though.

The contest ends on Monday, November 8 at 12 AM PST, so you have one week to wow us.


Gear Live GMail Giveaway Free G-Mail AccountsGoogle's GMail free email service has been around for months now, but is still in beta. This means that if you want an account, you need to be invited by someone who is a beta tester - or else you are out of luck. Being that Gear Live is all about the readers, we are now your hook up.

We will be posting GMail invitation links with every new story posted. They will not be so obvious, so you will have to click around to find it each time. Who knows - the graphic used with a story might be an invitation link, one of the ads on the right may be a hidden invitation link, or one of the links within an actual story might link to GMail rather than the subject itself. We will try to be creative, emphasis on try. We will probably fail miserably. Please let us know if you pick up an invite from this site!

Nonetheless, to get this kicked off, click on the GMail logo to the right for the first GMail invitation.

(Thank you to everyone who sent in GMail invitations for us to give away. If anyone else would like to help out and donate invites, send them to me at andru gearlive.com).
