The Microsoft Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT) group is looking for talented developers to create 'Channel' applications for the Smart Watch initiative - with payment of up to $10,000.

What is this RFP (Request for Proposal) for? Microsoft is looking for smart developers, to create smart channels, for the Smart Watch. The applications would run as a channel on the watch, much like the existing channels, and sync channel data via USB from the PC down to the watches or sync data over-the-air.

The SPOT group will be picking up to 10 developers based on responses from this Request for Proposal to work with. Unfortunately this is limited to US/Canada developersonly. Please read the attached program overview, and fill out the completed application and return it to Microsoft by Sept. 27, 2004. For more information on MSN Direct, see

What is the Smart Watch?
The Smart Watch is an initiative within Microsoft's Smart Personal Objects Technology Group that receives personalized content on your wrist.
Currently, the watches receive news, weather, sports, personal messages, calendar sync (via Outlook), daily diversions, horoscopes, lottery, customized watch faces, with more being added all the time.

Why should I participate?
Work with the SPOT team developers, shape the first Smart Watch SDK, and get paid $10,000! Why shouldn't you participate!

What is the deadline?
All completed applications should be submitted by Friday, Sept. 27, 2004 to Microsoft, by E-Mail or Fax. More information can be found in the application form.

Cheers ~ Arne
