With the HP Envy 14 with HP Beats Audio, style never SOUNDED this good. It's got a solid laser etched magnesium casing and is powered by the Intel® Core™ i5 processor and is thin and light which means extreme performance you can take with you. It won't blink when it comes to playing the latest game, watching an HD movie, or managing a massive music library. The HP Envy 14 was voted "computer of the year" in the November 2010 issue of Wired and has a private VIP support hotline with a dedicated help desk. Thank you HP and Intel for sponsoring Diggnation!
Want a chance to win a new phone? How about $250,000? Nokia and AT&T have launched the $10M 2010 Calling All Innovators North America contest, challenging mobile app and game developers to create the next level of apps for consumers in the U.S. and Canada for the new Nokia N8 and Ovi Store. The contest calls for apps to be developed in each of 11 different categories and cash prizes will be given to 1st through 3rd place of each category. 3rd place in each category gets $50,000 - that means at least 33 winners will get a minimum of $50,000 - cause 1st place in each category gets $250,000 and potentially even a $1 million dollar marketing campaign for their app. You're an app developer, you gotta get in on this contest. Apps can be written in Nokia Qt SDK, Web Runtime including Adobe Flash Lite 4, java or Open GL. Along with the O/S and Ovi Store, the new Nokia Qt SDK brings the popular Qt Creator IDE from the desktop and embedded worlds to mobile developers, enabling them to build native apps for Symbian 3 devices like the New Nokia N8. Developers can submit their apps by January 28th to be involved. Go to CallingAllInnovators.com/10M for all the details. Thanks to Nokia for sponsoring the show today!
Thanks to all of your amazing support for so many of the sponsors that make Diggnation possible, we want to try and harness that power to help an amazing charity - charity: water. As you may or may not know, one of the scarest resources in the world is water. It is an essential natural resource, and yet contaminated water is the cause of 80% of diseases, it kills more people per year than war, and nearly a billion people - one in 8 - don't have access to clean water. charity: water has figured out some really cool ways to leverage technology for the cause utilizing social media for good to help raise money and build wells. So Diggnation has created a group page: MyCharityWater.org/Diggnation - where you can donate whatever you can afford. It takes $5,000 to build a well that will provide clean water to an entire village, and want to help as many people as possible. The website will tell you everything you can do, but there are a ton of creative ways to get involved - donate your birthday, pledge to run a marathon, or even shave your head. Every little bit helps, and thanks to Charity:Water you'll know exactly where your money is going. We'll update you more in the coming months, but for now go to MyCharityWater.org/Diggnation to learn more.
