You know we had a lot of fun judging this one: for day two of Engadget's 3rd Birthday Giveaways we tasked you fine people with creating the best Engadget screensaver you possibly could. The overwhelming majority were Mac RSS reading screensavers, but we got some very different, really great entries as well. Again, big ups to the WMExperts store for providing the Wii and 10,000 Wii points to the grand prize winner! Now, on to the screensavers.


First place - Robert Lenz

Nervous pulsing Engadget logos. Really engaging, but those with epilepsy may want to steer clear.


Fifth place - Jeremiah Johnson

Bill Gates, Engadget fan numero uno reads y'all the feeds. We really hope Mr. Gates himself chooses to use this screensaver.

Another nead RSS-reading screensaver. Jeff's Engadget logo waves spin around the E in 3D, definitely a fun effect.

Thanks again to everyone who entered, and be sure to check back tomorrow for the winners of our cake contest!
