We are giving away a bunch of cool gadgets that are geared to amp up your summer, thanks to AT&T! As always, if you're a Gear Live Patron, you get 25 bonus entries. Here's a look at what we are giving away in this contest:
Jawbone mini Jambox: Okay, for real, who doesn't wanna have music with them when by the pool or at the beach? A lot of us have a seemingly unlimited amount of music accessible by our smartphones and tablets, and the mini Jambox allows you to stream it over Bluetooth. At the next family BBQ, you'll be the star of the show.
Jawbone UP24: Fitness wearables are all the rage these days, and if you like tracking your stats or are looking for a motivational tool, then it's easy to see why. With the UP24, you can monitor your fitness throughout the day, and even track your calories and water intake. At night, it'll even keep track of how well you are sleeping, which is probably not well if you're out camping in a tent. The device connects to your smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth LE, so the battery lasts a full week, and there's no plugging anything in to sync.
Bodyguardz Screenguardz Pure: I always thought it was kind of silly for people to protect their smartphone screens with a thin plastic film. The Screenguardz Pure is a super-thin piece of tempered glass that can actually take a real beating, and exceeds the hardness of steel. That's protection.
Every year we get the urge to find the most awesome barbecues for the summer cooking of the beasts, and Direct Design’s Notebook Portable Grill is our first entry. At a size of 18 x 14 x 12-inches and a weight of about 8 lbs., the grill has a 192 sq. inch surface and a stainless steel grate with a waterproof surface. When it is not cooking up your dinner, you can pack it flat to go. No frills, no plug-in USB, this is a simple design that does what it is supposed to. The barbecue comes with a one-year warranty at a price of $48.00. If laptops continue to get smaller and thinner, we were thinking this would make a nifty carrier/desk top if cooking is too much of a challenge.

The Kufra Pitcher is almost too perfect a concept. Holding 72 ounces of liquid, the 8.5 x 6.5-inch Italian Glass carafe features a removable plastic tube insert for 8 to 10 ice cubes which screws into the bottom of its plastic lid to keep your liquids from becoming watered-down. Frankly, for the modest price of $13.95, plastic stirrer included, we much prefer that than our usual popping our containers of lemonade in the freezer and forgetting about them until they explode.

So we recently told you about the Boombox Bag, which this writer loved so much she ventured over to a local Journeys store to check it out…only to find it was way too small (albeit cute) for her needs. A new contender is the
Woody Cool Tunes Cooler Bag, complete with faux wood grain and built-in speakers. As with the Boombox Bag, just plug in your iPod or MP3 player, and hear your music anywhere you go. And being a cooler, it also keeps your drinks and food cold while your party on. Need more? It even has a built-in AM/FM radio, in case no one “gets” your taste in music. Pretty cool for $45 USD.
