Voting is open for the Crunchies 2008 (part sponsored by TechCrunch), and right there amongst the 'big hitters' of Web 2.0 is Swype
That's some heavy competition (um, four multi-billion dollar companies) - but not all of them are 'unique'. There's two "Connect"s in the list, plus (another) web browser, (another) spin on Search, (another) Microsoft 'Live' thing... and Swype
Ever since I first saw Swype I've wanted it on my iPhone - it is COOL! Imagine if you had seen T9 back when everyone was triple-tapping without predictive text on their Nokias and Motorolas - you'd have voted for it, right (and not Microsoft Bob, or Netscape Navigator, or whatever else was 'new' back then)?
To be honest, I wouldn't have had a chance to play with Swype first-hand if I didn't know some of the guys working on it - but of everything in that list - Swype is the one thing I want RIGHT NOW.
Anyway - don't take my word for it - check out Swype and if you like what you see, vote!
