Contest #3: The Next Big Thing

Welcome to Week 3 of The Great Tech Call-'Em-Like-You-See-'Em Contest, the contest where you can win one of two iPods, plus 36 other cool prizes.

What's it all about? Well, each week for four weeks we expound on a different theme in a series of short essays by various TechWeb editors and then let our readers take over by submitting their own contributions.

The topics are:

  • The Software Hall Of Fame: What is your favorite software app of the last 10 years? (There's still time to enter!)
  • The Hardware Hall Of Fame: What's the best hardware you've come across in the past decade? (Enter any time!)
  • The Next Big Thing: There's a lot of great stuff coming up. What tech do you see in your future? (Enter at the end of this story.)
  • Helpless User Stories: Tell us your best, funniest, and/or most horrifying story of user lo-jinks. (Now open!)
