Congrats to Hal S. of Pittsboro, N.C., for winning a Wi-Fi-only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 in last week's giveaway, and to Padraic O. of Bedford, N.H., for winning a copy of Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 voice recognition software the week before that. Both those prizes would fit nicely into this week's freebie, a Booq Cobra pack laptop backpack.
The Booq Cobra pack holds a 15- or 17-inch MacBook Pro, or a PC laptop up to 17 inches, in a highly protective laptop compartment with a water-resistant zipper. It's got lots of pockets for gearheads on the go, including an iPad/e-reader-specific one and two built-in smartphone/music player holders in the shoulder straps.
Normally the Booq Cobra pack would run you $265, but you have a chance to win one for zilch, zero, nada. So how do you go about scoring a new carrier for your mobile gadgets? Please read the rules carefully.
