CONTEST: Design Our New Logo, Win an Android Collectible and an ezeStand XL!

Back in June, we ran a contest that asked our readers to put their graphics on-display by creating the next Droid Life logo.  We received a ton of submissions, picked 12 finalists, and allowed you to vote on your favorite.  When we tallied up all of the votes, we were left with a fine logo, but now we’re ready for something new.  It’s 2011 and we have a big year ahead, so let’s start it off with a brand new look!

How will the contest work?

1.  Design a new logo that you think we can use as our avatar, Facebook, and Twitter picture.
2.  The dimensions of the it are simple yet important.  Please submit 512×512 logos only.
3.  We need the logo to include our color scheme which is essentially:  black, pink, grey and white.
4.   Once created, upload it to your favorite hosting site and paste it in the comments below.
5.  We’ll allow logos to be submitted for the next  6 days (until 1/31).
6.  On 1/31, we’ll take all of the submissions and decide as a team who wins.
7.  A winner will be picked on February 1st and announced on the site.

What do you win for creating our next logo?

Since we love to give away goodies on this site, we thought we package up a couple of items for the winning logo designer.  How does a brand new and unopened Android mini-collectible plus an ezeStand XL sound?  All you have to do is create a logo that drives us wild and both items are yours!

Tip:  Our font is BN 3rd Place.

Everyone ready?  Let’s see what you can do!

Review: The New ezeStand XL Gives Your “Hummer” a Home

As our long time readers know, we’re big fans of the ezeStand, which was one of the first and most affordable DROID stands on the planet.  The original came out back around April 2010, and since then we’ve given away at least 3 of them through a variety of contests.  The guys behind this classic have been kind to the Droid Life community, so it brings us great pleasure to help announce their newest product, the ezeStand XL.   (more…)

Video: Unboxing an EzeStand

You know it’s going to be a good day when you open your front door and find a package sitting there screaming, “I’m a Droid toy!  Open me!”  And that’s exactly what happened today.  The boys at ezeStand were kind enough to let us check out their sweet alternative Motorola Droid docking stand.  At the slim price of $12.99 with free shipping, you shouldn’t even consider the one Verizon is selling any longer.

Video ezeStand action…

And as promised, here is the link to the 2.1 Desk Clock which will make your ezeStand experience that much prettier.

Update: That sweet USB cable in my box does not ship with the $12.99 version.  You can purchase one from $1.99 to $3.99 though depending on the type.

Check ‘em out if you need an affordable docking station.  Seriously, buy 2 if you want; still cheaper than one VZW version.

And one last “Thanks!” to them for sponsoring our March Madness Challenge.  Thanks guys!

Join the Droid Life March Madness Bracket Challenge!

It’s March Madness time!  When it comes to sporting events, the NCAA tourney tops my list every year.  (Yeah, even over the Super Bowl.)  And I’ve got to say that nothing is more fun than talkin’ trash while competing with friends, co-workers and family through a bracket contest!  So to help fuel your bracket fun, we’re launching our next contest which has a bundle of fantastic prizes including an ezeStand to the top 3 spots, some cash and the paid version of xScope!

All you need to do to enter is sign up over at ESPN.com’s Tourney Challenge page, join the Droid Life group and then fill out your bracket.  After that, ESPN will whip out all the scores so that the rest of us can just sit back and watch all of the upsets unfold.  Don’t wait too long though as your bracket has to be submitted before Thursday’s first set of games!

Here are the details…

Group: Droid Life
Password is:  droidlife

Prizes:

1st Place – 1 ezeStand, $25 PayPal cash, Paid version of xScope.
2nd Place – 1 ezeStand, $10 PayPal cash, Paid version of xScope.
3rd Place – 1 ezeStand, $5 PayPal cash, Paid version of xScope.

Winners:

The winners will be decided following the NCAA Championship game on April 5. Prizes will be  sent out thereafter, most likely by the end of that week.  Should there be a tie for any of the top 3 spots, we will decide an appropriate tiebreaker at that time.  If you win, you will be notified through your ESPN account.
