Update: Congratulations to CNET reader Isaac W. of East Lansing, Mich, who was randomly selected as the winner from more than 2,700 entries. Be sure to check back Friday starting at 5 a.m. PDT to see what our next prize will be!
OK, we're starting something new here on Crave. We can't say it's original or new to gadget blogs, but it is new to us. And we think you'll like it. It's called, "Crave giveaway of the week."
For our inaugural installment, we've got a limited-edition Battlestar Galactica 16GB Zune. Microsoft offered it up to Crave readers--and "Battlestar Galactica" fans--as a way to celebrate (read: promote) the arrival of the first episode of "Caprica" (the prequel series to "Battlestar Galactica") on DVD. More importantly to Zune owners, you can now go to the Zune Marketplace and download an exclusive 90-minute Q&A with "Caprica" and "Battlestar Galactica" cast members.
So, how do you win this special-edition Zune? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.
