And the winners are:
*We picked this one as an "honorable mention" based on the merit of an entry in a "category" we didn't think to offer.
**Not being a die hard Mac guy, I failed to realize that FireFox can't really be extended at all. So we elevated another FireFox app in its place. That seemed more fair than eliminating an iPod.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and congrats to the winners.
We know that Feedster has been been built into a number of different applications, mostly aggregators, and we're looking to jump start our developer community. And we're doing it the rational, well considered, logical approach: with iPods. Specifically we're going to give away 12 iPod Minis to the best Feedster applications that people create in the following categories:
What we're going to do is take all the applications, use the information from them to populate a new section of the Feedster site: http://tools.feedster.com/ and then award to the best of them a sparkling, shiny new iPod.
