For the past couple of weeks I have been trying my hand on the competitive website that is Prizes.org.

Prizes is a website that allows users to post a problem or need that they have and have other users give them "answers." Answers can be anything from a slogan to a logo design. I really liked the concept of Prizes as it was an easy free way to make money, and there wasn't an age limit(always good for me.)

I have been engulfed in the community for much time now, I have not won any prizes yet but I don't really care, I just like the idea and the competitive aspect.

But today I was very disappointed. When I searched Prizes.org in Google I saw this...

Google made Prizes.org! "NO NO NO NO NO, I thought. Google is actually doing something that I like."

The story behind Prizes.org, the only brilliant Google idea, is that in 2010 Google acquired a gaming company called Slide. they used Slide to operate this organization that they released very quietly on July 4th of 2011.

So in the end, I think that Prizes is an amazing idea and that Google, in this case, struck gold.

If I were Google, I would sell Motorola Mobility and Droid, destroy Google+ and focus my attention on Prizes as I think this is a priceless concept.
