The Apple Collection has announced its
Summer Desktop Pictures 2002
contest, in which Mac users are encouraged to come up with designs for Apple-oriented desktop wallpaper. The winners will receive a copy of YazSoft’s Speed Download software.
The theme of the contest is “Apple Speed.” Contest entrants are encouraged to come up with Mac-focused desktop images that evoke both Apple — logos, OS or computer references — and the concept of speed. You can send as many entries as you want between now and August 16th. The results of the contest will be posted on August 24.
Speed Download is a download management utility that provides functions like segmented downloads, resumable downloads, scheduling, scripting and more. YazSoft claims that Speed Download accelerates all downloads and can provide transfers up to 4 to 6 times faster on a broadband connection. It’s available as downloadable shareware for US$20.
There are some guidelines for sizes and file formats, so it’s wise to check out the Web site for the full details.
