We’ve got a quick contest for you guys today, as we aim to start off the week by coming correct. We’ve got a Moshi voice control alarm clock that we are gonna give away to one of our readers. Seriously, if the idea of controlling something with your voice seems intriguing, you should know that you can use this clock without ever looking at it. It’s that good. Here are the features:
- Activated by user saying “Hello Moshi”, no buttons needed for functionality
- Responds to 12 voice activated commands: time, set alarm, today’s date, temperature, and more
- Features include snooze, 3 sounds for alarm and sleep, volume control, and night light
- Recognized by the World Blind Union, Moshi can be operated without ever seeing the clock
- Voice control works right out of the box with no programming necessary
Typically, this bad boy sells for $40 (and you can pick one up on Amazon if you so choose.) However, tomorrow we will choose one random reader who has liked us on Facebook and left a comment on our Facebook page. That’s all you gotta do to enter. Good luck!

If you haven’t heard of Mass Effect 2, then you’re probably just waking up from cryogenic sleep. The sequel to one of the best selling Action RPGs hit the shelves this week and, for the most part, is bouncing right back off the shelves and into gamer’s 360’s and PCs.
We’re always keeping our eyes open for free stuff. Especially free video games. It looks like the brand new gaming site L33tsauce.com is celebrating their open beta by giving away a copy of Mass Effect 2 (any platform) to the person who makes the best page about the game on their site.

When we announced our HP Envy 13 giveaway, we knew you guys would show up with some videos showing what it was that you wanted the Envy 13 to do for you (or in some cases, someone else, holiday season and all.) In all, 57 of you guys hit us with video responses on YouTube to enter. We figured it would mostly consist of people talking into a webcam (we were right,) which was fine with us. The winner was chosen by random, so there wasn’t really any reason to go all out anyway.
Imagine our surprise when we went in today and chose a random winner (hat tip to Random.org,) and it turned out to be a music video! We then started peeking around at some of the other entries, and there was definitely some creativity going on. The video at the top is done by YouTube user TheSumbiProject, and he is our random winner. We will reach out to him as soon as we hit publish on this post. That said, we wanted to share some of the other interesting entries we received, so you’ll find those after the break.
Remember those HP Envy 13 notebooks we told you about? Well, we are in the middle of a contest where we are giving one away. Here’s your official reminder, because you don’t have much more time left to enter! Check out the video above for the full scoop, and then head on over to the official HP Envy 13 giveaway page for all the details on how to enter.
