Giveaways

Pocketables CES 2009 swag giveaway

Ces09_swag_bag

There may not have been too many new product announcements at CES this year, but there was no shortage of free swag scattered between press events, booths, and venues. We probably didn't get as much stuff as some of the other sites did, but our lot of loot isn't too shabby . . . especially since one of you can have it all!

Ces09_swag

The winner of this little giveaway will find all the items you see above inside the multitude of pockets of the CES and Toshiba-branded press bag shown in the first photo. There's a Sharper Image t-shirt (XL), USB flash drives, pens, Sony bag made of bamboo, knick-knacks from Digital Experience, lanyards, pen-style flashlight, notebook, iGo charging cables with iPhone and mini-USB tips, mints, mouse pad, letter opener, keychain, and some other odds and ends.

The flash drives are the best part of the stash, if you ask me. I'm not sure of all of their capacities, but I know that sparkly MSI one is 4GB. I think I saw 1GB and 2GB stickers on some of the other ones as well.

If you wouldn't mind having some souvenirs from CES 2009 arrive at your door, just leave a comment below (one entry per person please). I'll select the winner at random on Thursday, January 15th, and ship the bag of goodies via USPS Priority or USPS Priority International, depending on your location.

Thanks for keeping up with Pocketables at CES!

  • I could always use a USB hub or two (or more), and I collect advertizing pens, so this would be a nice addition to my collection (I have a number of pens from technology companies, some no longer in existance). I hope I get this neat stash of stuff!!!

    Again, the same comment with the one I posted for the previous December giveaway: is this giveaway for US residents only or is it open to everyone around the globe? :-)

  • Same answer as the December giveaway: it’s open to everyone, everywhere. :-)

    Also did you try the Samsung Papyrus? Handwriting recognition on an e-ink device seems like a good development for secondary screens on UMPCs, even if e-ink will never be suitable for video

    Shiny! Shiny flash drive that’s twice the capacity and has more shiny, sparkly girl-factor that my current flash drive doesn’t have. I’ll take it! (and everything else I guess haha.)

    Reply
  • It’s an eco-bag that folds up into its interior pocket to the shape/size you see in the photo. The bag and packaging (the paper-like sleeve) are both made of 100% bamboo. The material is listed as “bamboo rayon 100%” on the package.
