The CNET crew's back from CES 2014, and bearing swag aplenty. What will we be doing with all the stuff we collected on the show floor? Sharing it with readers, of course. This week's giveaway winner scores a big giant stash.
Inside your CES backpack you'll find a 40-watt-equivalent energy-saving Samsung LED light bulb; a 16GB PhotoFlash i-FlashDrive cross-platform storage device for Android and iOS; and an Impulse Controller, a portable Bluetooth controller for mobile devices that's also a key finder. (When you find your keys, you can put them on the TiVo keychain we're tossing in).
You'll also get an official CES T-shirt and baseball cap, a long-sleeve CNET shirt with five stars on the front, and a copy of the amusing T-shirt T-Mobile CEO John Legere wore onstage during his 2014 CES keynote (Legere was kicked out of AT&T's CES party and claimed he was only at the party to see musical performer Macklemore).
We're throwing in lots of other goodies too -- decks of cards, a touch-screen cleaning cloth, a cute 3D-printed figurine from Makerbot, and a silicone rubber wallet that sticks to phones and cases and holds credit cards and the like. It features the CNET logo, no less.
So what do you have to do to get this CES grab bag worth approximately $300? We do have a few rules, so please read carefully. And if you don't win this week's prize, try again next Friday for part 2 of our CES giveaway.
