Occasionally the eternal optimist (I realize the contradiction), I routinely go to IWon, spyware and all, to try for the $10,000 daily prize. Maybe it’s time to move on to a new prize site and fulfill my search needs. With Blingo, you can do just that. Blingo is a search engine that awards prizes — just type in a search, and if you’re a winner you’ll know before you can even see your search results. Current prizes include a year of NetFlix, a TiVo, Amazon gift certificate, and more. The search engine itself is pretty lightweight, and there are a ton of ads, but who’s gonna let a few ads get in the way of a new TiVo? Here’s more on Blingo from John Battelle.
