    Contest Update: We're in contact with the winner (Luca from Austria) and are in the process of shipping his Nexus 5 to him. Thanks to everyone who participated in our Nexus 5 giveaway! You know the old saying: sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. Sometimes you're the Louisville Slugger, sometimes you're the ball. Sometimes you're a radio champ, sometimes you make a 90-minute podcast based entirely on leaks and rumors, only to have the subject of those rumors officially unveiled just hours later. Life's rough. Well, this week we're looking to correct that bit of poor ...

    It's weird when holidays fall in the middle of the week, because either you're kicking off a long weekend with the special celebration, or you're returning to work the next day with a fuzzy brain, a sunburn, and sand in your hair. We're in the latter situation this week at Pocketnow, the American portion of the team coming down from a day of BBQ and a night of fireworks ... but in our case, it's a good thing. Because today's the day for our weekly mobile tech podcast, and we love us some mobile-tech podcasting. We hope you do, too, because today's Pocketnow Weekly is quite possibly the ...

    Update 2: We have us a winner! Please join us in congratulating Julian Brecevic of Australia, who'll be taking home this giveaway's LG Optimus G! Thanks to all those who helped propel our review count to stratospheric levels, almost tripling it from 29 to 89! We know some of you were upset about the iTunes-only qualifier, but we'll have more giveaways in the future, and some of them will be broader. Again, thanks so much for listening - and stay tuned for much more in the weeks and months ahead. Update: We're still waiting to hear back from our prospective winner, folks - once he replies ...

    Update: We're still waiting to hear back from our prospective winner, folks. Once we qualify his entry we'll make an announcement proper. Sorry for the delay, but we'll have this sorted out one way or the other very soon! And thanks so much for your reviews - they've already given the Weekly quite a shot in the arm, and we appreciate it. It's been a little while since we shared the wealth, and we have a special occasion coming up: episode 050 of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is just around the corner! We wanted to celebrate our golden anniversary of tech-podcast tomfoolery with a gift to ...

    Recently, the good people at Samsung Mobile USA were kind enough to provide us with a spare Galaxy Note II for giveaway purposes, and a giveaway is just what we announced last week. We asked you to send in your answers to five trivia questions placed randomly throughout our articles and the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, and you responded en masse: nearly 700 of you weighed in with your responses to Galaxy Note II-based trivia questions asking about everything from hyperglaze to battery capacity. The logistics are now complete, the numbers have been drawn, and the revels are just beginning for ...

    The Galaxy S III's barely old enough to warrant an After The Buzz episode, but we're already talking about the Galaxy S IV. In any other venue, that would be a sign of jumping the shark; on the Pocketnow Weekly, it's just business as usual. Tune in for our best speculation on what Samsung might include in its next sensational superphone, from unbreakable screens to bone conduction. Then keep on listening for an extended debate about the merits of Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 versus iOS, drilling down into their UIs and design philosophy. Finally, after some extended talk about how useful ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note II continues to redefine the smartphone space. The phone/tablet hybrid achieved a 9 out of 10 in our comprehensive review, demonstrated excellent staying power in its recent After The Buzz appearance, and continues to sell well as we head into the holiday season. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Samsung, we have the opportunity to give one away. So that's just what we're going to do. If you've been dreaming of sticking an S Pen-enabled phablet in a loved one's stocking this holiday, but you'd like to avoid spending $600 in the process, this post contains everything ...

    Last week, we told tales of wireless audio at wineries, sang the praises of our friends at Sonos, and promised a HiFi system to folks willing to listen to the latest episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Over the past week, we've enjoyed watching the responses come in, and we've been especially heartened to see only a few attempts at "beating the system." Thanks for reinforcing our belief that there really are very few "tools" out there. The logistics are now complete, the numbers have been drawn, and the revels are just beginning for our lucky winner. Please join us in ...

We just hit our twentieth episode, and to celebrate, we decided to tie the podcast into our latest giveaway contest.

Somewhere in today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly is the special hint word you need to email us at contest [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com ...

    This past Black Friday, I wasn't scrambling for deals at a local Best Buy or Wal Mart; I was recovering from too much turkey and taters. I was enjoying my convalescence from overindulgence at a local winery, whose tasting room featured a sound system of impressive bass and volume. That stereo equipment, I was later to learn, was a Sonos wireless HiFi system: a stereo apparatus that allows one to stream music from internet sources like Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, and a whole host of others to a big 'ole speaker, and control it via an iOS, Android, PC, or Mac device. It's a little slice of the ...
