Congrats to Patrick S. of Fargo, N.D., for winning last week's giveaway, a Korg digital MicroPiano. The winner of this week's prize should appreciate the virtues of pink--or know someone who does. Yep, we're talking pink, and lots of it.
Our latest freebie comes courtesy of ChicBuds, a maker of fashion music accessories for, in its words, the "couture lifestyle." The SoCal-based company makes some really fun glammy, blingy gear, and we like the fact that during October, it's donating 20 percent of proceeds from its pink products to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For your double dose of pinkness, you'll be getting a $34.99 portable Fauvette bird-shaped speaker and a pair of DJ Sport Headphones, also $34.99. The speaker chirps away through a 2-watt amplified speaker that gives out four hours of sound on one charge of its built-in rechargeable battery. It's compatible with iPhones, iPods and other MP3 players, and any other device with a standard 3.5mm stereo jack.
Completing the ensemble, the hot-pink and black headphones will work well for the portable set, as they fold up for ease of storage and convenient use.
So how do you score this week's prize? Let us enumerate the basic rules. Please put on your rose-colored glasses and read them carefully. … Read more
