Crave giveaway of the day: Flip Video MinoHD (second generation)

From now until Christmas Eve, we'll be giving away a prize a day on Crave (except for weekends and holidays). Today's prize: a Flip Video MinoHD camcorder (second generation).

Flip MinoHD (second generation)
Pure Digital

For our penultimate 2009 Crave giveaway, we've got the Flip Video MinoHD. This is the current second-generation model that was introduced in the fall of 2009. It's a nice refinement of Flip's handheld camcorder design that records 720p HD video and offers HDMI output for quick and easy connections to any modern HDTV. David Carnoy rated this model an enthusiastic four stars when he reviewed it earlier this year.

We'd also like to give a shout out to Shopper.com for helping set up this Crave giveaway. Shopper.com powers CNET's price-comparison engine, and it's a great site for finding the best prices on products. (See all of Shopper's deals, coupon codes, and rebates).

Normally, the Flip Video MinoHD (second generation) would cost you about $230, but you have the chance to get it gratis.

So, how do you try to win this Flip Video MinoHD (second generation)? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.
