MacBook Air Giveaway

We’re giving away a six-month LootCrate subscription every week to one random person who leaves insightful comments on all articles that week. If you want, you can use “LOCKERGNOME” to save 10% on a LootCrate subscription immediately!

But maybe what really caught your eye in this newsletter headline was the fact that we’re running a MacBook Air giveaway? I don’t blame you! Check out this tweet to find out how you can have a chance at it. And if you fancy Apple stuff, then you should certainly tune in for our live Apple event announcement discussion!

Oh, and one more thing before we continue: Did you know that a LockerGnome app now exists — for iOS as well as Android? True story!

On with the show!

In this video, we discuss Nokia’s announcement of two new flavors of Lumia smartphones, why Candice Shane thinks that her Kindle Fire 2 will be able to beat up your iPad (2 or new or otherwise), and how Ryan Matthew Pierson believes that Windows 8 is headed down the right path.

Have we got your attention yet? How about trying some of this on for size?

Would you want to live forever? Would you settle for twice as long? What if you had to choose between long life or good health? There are plenty of real-life examples of people living long and healthy lives, but what if you had to take one over the other? If the ravages of age are far-off thoughts and you’ve got younger concerns at heart, perhaps you’d like to know about a sensor for football helmets that warns of brain injury or if teenagers can learn valuable lessons about financial responsibility with prepaid credit cards.

But wait! That’s not all! We also talked about how The Borg have assimilated Labor Day! I guess that’s nothing compared to what Daleks could do to Christmas, or Imperial stormtroopers could do to Groundhog Day, or Cylons could do to Thanksgiving, but I’m committed to only worrying about one holiday/alien invasion at a time. It’s much easier that way.
