TUAW giveaway: A mobile bonanza from Dr. Bott


Ahhh, the joys of being in the Apple press! We're constantly getting a stream of items, both hardware and software, to review. Here at TUAW, it is our policy to never keep anything so that we can't be accused of being "bought" for a review. So when a boxful of mobile-oriented goodies from Apple-friendly retailer Dr. Bott showed up in the mail the other day, our immediate thought was to give them away to some lucky TUAW reader!

This giveaway is oriented towards those of you who have both a MacBook of some sort and an iPhone 3G or 3GS. Here's what's in the mix:

  • Moshi ClearGuard MB -- this clear urethane keyboard protector is one-fifth the thickness of silicone protectors, and is completely washable and reusable. It works with any of the existing MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air laptops from Apple. It's valued at US$24.99.
  • Speck CandyShell -- If you have an iPhone 3G or 3GS, you're going to love this case with the hard shell and soft center. This is the "green/green" version, which is very... green. The value of this yummy case is $34.95.
  • ifrogz Voltz USB Car Charger -- iPods, iPhones, and other USB devices can be charged with this car charger, which comes with a Luxe Red finish. It's worth $12.99.
  • Matias Mini Rizer -- this is perfect for those situations where you want to watch a TV show or movie on your iPhone or iPod touch, but you don't feel like holding it for a couple of hours. This clear plastic, credit card-sized stand is adjustable to two angles, and has a suggested retail price of $14.95.
  • Skullcandy Rasta Sweatband and Skull Necklace -- Skullcandy makes some great headphones as well as iPhone and iPod accessories. You'll be bangin' with your Rasta sweatband and skull necklace, valued at $5.95 and $9.95 respectively.
  • Road Tools Podium CoolPad -- This sweet little pivoting laptop stand will work with just about any laptop Apple has ever made, except for that old Mac Portable... This one is black, will probably work with your iPad, and retails for $29.95.
  • ThemaPAK HeatShift Pad -- We saw these selling like hotcakes at Macworld Expo 2010. These pads use special heat-absorbing crystals and can lower the temperature of your MacBook by 6 degrees Celsius. This one is made for 13" MacBook models, and comes in black. The suggested retail price is $28.00
