Congrats to Brent P. of Brookfield, Mass., for winning last week's prize, a bag of swag collected by CNET staffers on the CES 2013 show floor. And now, for part 2 of our awesome-stuff-from-CES giveaway...
This week's winner also gets a bag of swag. But not just any bag, a Powerbag Instant Messenger bag. The bag contains a built-in removable, rechargeable 6,000mAh battery system for charging smartphones, e-readers, and many tablets. When it's time to recharge the Powerbag, just connect the included AC adapter and plug it into a wall outlet. I know lots of roving CNETers who would have liked having one of these at CES.
Inside the bag, you'll find two CNET T-shirts; an Incipio Stowaway credit card case with integrated kickstand for the iPhone 5; a Nokia portable USB charger for power on the go; and a pair of touch-screen-friendly gloves that you can wear in winter while tapping away at your device. Plus a few other little surprises.
Normally, this bag of fun would cost you around $325, but you have the chance to get all of it for free. How do you go about doing that? There are some rules, so please read carefully.
