Nuance

Congrats to Craig L. of East Wenatchee, Wash., for winning a $200 gift certificate to geek shop KlearGear.com in last week's giveaway, and to Chuck V. of Eden Prairie, Minn., for scoring a bag of CES swag the week before that. Now, on to this week's business...

Are you a fan of speech recognition software? Put your hands up in the air. We're giving away a copy of the latest version of Nuance's Dragon Dictate for Mac.

Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 promises 15 percent better out-of-the box accuracy than its predecessor, as well as faster mistake correction, among other improvements. Also, if you like to capture your spontaneous fits of genius using a digital voice recorder or iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, the software will transcribe the recorded audio files when you connect to your Mac.

Normally, Dragon Dictate for Mac 3 would cost you $199.99, but you have the chance to get it for zero, nada, bupkis. How do you go about doing that? There are a few rules from our department of people who make rules, so please read carefully.
