Google's Day in the Cloud Challenge, an online scavenger hunt has officially kicked off today. The game is being played simultaneously on the ground and in the air aboard Virgin America flights across the U.S. The Day in the Cloud demonstrates how people can use Google Apps to stay connected with friends, family and co-workers when they're away from their homes — even at 35,000 feet in the air.
The online game will be available until 11:59pm PDT today, so check them out and see how well you can do. Google has teamed with Virgin America to offer a total of five top prizes to the top five scorers in the challenge. The prizes will include a "Year in the Cloud" prize package, which offers a year of free flights and free in-flight Wi-Fi from Virgin America, an HP netbook computer, and 1 terabyte of Google account storage for all of your photos and email.
The Day in the Cloud Challenge will offer several levels of challenges that last just one hour. Google is inviting everyone to take on the challenge between 12:00am and 11:59pm PST. If you want to win a prize you must be a legal resident of the U.S. and at least 18 years of age to be eligible.
