Congrats to Cy N. of Palo Alto, Calif., for winning a 40-inch LCD TV from TCL in last week's giveaway. And now, giveaway participants, a public-service announcement: Please make sure your CNET account is linked to a current e-mail address. We notify winners via e-mail, and if you're not regularly checking the addy you're registered with, your prize will go to someone else, which would be a big bummer for you.
OK, onward to this week's freebie, which the winner will promptly get word of via his or her wonderfully current e-mail address, right? (Nudge, nudge.)
We've got a FoxL Dash 7, a newly released portable high-fidelity Bluetooth speaker from Soundmatters. At just three quarters of an inch high and less than half a pound, this little guy slides easily into most pockets and purses and under tablets and monitors but boasts big and pristine omnidirectional sound. Its onboard BassBattery system provides up to 12 hours of music playback while doubling as a woofer to enhance bass reproduction.
Designed for use with mobile devices, the Dash 7 has an integrated noise-canceling microphone that supports a speakerphone function so you can answer incoming calls even while listening to music or watching movies. Multitasking for the win!
Normally, a Soundmatters FoxL Dash 7 would run you $249, but this is your chance to get one in the color of your choice for the price of $0. How? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
