Do you love TalkAndroid.com? Well, since you’re here, we sure hope you do. But now, the big question – how much do you love us? We want to know how crazy you’re willing to get for us – and, in return, we’ve got some pretty awesome prizes for you.
Here’s how this is going to work. We want you to show us how crazy you are for TalkAndroid. We want you to submit videos or pictures of you doing something to show the world how much you love our site. Put up a huge banner on the side of a building, put flyers on cars, shout it from a rooftop… be as creative as you can! Remember, the more original the idea, the more likely you are to win the first place prize pack. And, of course, keep it legal, and keep it appropriate! Here’s what the winners will receive:

Well, lucky for all of us, the good folks over at Tether have released the Android version of their popular tethering app for Blackberry, and it works great. I personally find myself using it constantly on my HTC Evo 4G, and you couldn’t get me to do it any other way.
We love it so much, in fact, that we’ve teamed up with the Tether team to bring you a contest where you can win a copy of Tether absolutely free!

So, over the next week, we will be running a contest where 15 lucky readers will get a copy of this great app. Hit the break for the rules, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!
