Congratulations to Chris D. of Turlock, California, for winning part 1 of our CES swag giveaway extraordinaire last week. Now, on to part 2.
This week’s winner gets a nice big padded Patagonia backpack — with lots of good stuff inside. That stuff includes a pair of Maroo fashion earbuds inset with shiny cut-glass stones and a Samsung 5200 mAh Fast Charge Battery Pack for powering the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, Note 4, Note 5 or Galaxy S6 series on the go. The portable battery can, on average, charge a device from 0 to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
You’ll find more in the backpack, including a little Ditto wearable from Simple Matters that vibrates to alert you to calls and texts on your iOS or Android device in case you didn’t feel your gadget vibrate. Then there’s a Blu-ray/DVD combo of the film “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F'” from the Japanese animated series. And other bits and bobs.
