NewsGator Catches Contest Fever

The we-gotta-have-a-cool-app-contest fever has now spread to NewsGator. They have just announced that they are looking for "the most innovative uses" of their API. Developers can win a Dell Latitude D610 or Apple Powerbook G4 laptop (first prize) or iPod nano (second prize).
