Last year, readers liked our CES swag giveaway so much that we're doing one again this year -- in a big way. CNET staffers collected so many great goodies at CES 2013 that we have enough freebies for two separate giveaways.
This week's winner will score, among other prizes, an itty-bitty 1GB NewKube Kube MP3 player; a Moshi VersaCover hard-shell case with foldable cover and stand for the iPad Mini; and a for the iPhone and iPod.
From Casio, there's a flash drive that can be worn as a bracelet, and another little flash drive from Pepcom. Then there's a much-abridged version of "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley. It was automatically shortened using a language heuristics engine from Stremor, maker of the TLDR (too long; didn't read) content-condensing plug-in for Chrome.
Oh, and did we mention the "Always On" and "Apple Byte" stickers signed, respectively, by hosts Molly Wood and Brian Tong? It all comes in a sturdy SwissGear CheckPoint-friendly computer backpack from Wenger. Woot.
Altogether, this swag stash would run you about $220, but you have the chance to get the whole thing for free. How? Well, there are a couple of rules here and there, so please read carefully. And be sure to check back next Friday for part two of our awesome-stuff-from-CES giveaway.
