Announcing Our Last Minute Holiday Giveaway Winner!

By Chris Scott Barr

Alright, if your name is hspringsteen, you don’t have anything to worry about. All of those gifts that you still haven’t bought? They’re going to be coming your way.  We can’t cover all 21 of your nieces and nephews, but this should help a bit. Now are you going to wait until the last minute next year? Lets hope not.

In all seriousness, congratulations to him, and thanks to everyone else that entered. And remember, if you’re still wanting to get in on some free goodies, we are still giving away a Tokyoflash Kisai Sensai Pure Watch. The contest is running through Christmas, so at the very least you can get yourself a late gift.

Happy Holidays!

It’s The Holidays: We’re Giving Away A Tokyoflash Kisai Sensai Pure Watch!

By David Ponce

It’s the Holidays so of course here at OhGizmo! this means giving back to you, our readers, at least a tiny sliver of the joy you give us with your patronage. We try to do this in the form of giveaways, and we’ve sure had a few so far: the EOS Mixtape Watch (now closed), the Windows Phone 7 (now closed) and the TiVo Premiere (still open, so go comment!). We’re adding one more to that list with the Kisai Sensai Pure watch from Tokyoflash, in black on black.

As any self-respecting geek should, we have a serious love affair with these watches and believe that a line from Wired UK magazine captures their essence quite eloquently: “Tokyoflash has made being obtuse into an art form.” Indeed. So read the rules (they’re always changing a little) and enter for your chance to win!

Rules: 1) Open worldwide!! 2) Leave a comment on this post, but please make it longer than 25 characters (it’ll make your editor happy…). 3) Comments will be closed on December 25 at 11:59pm EST.

Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Happy Holidays!

Announcing The Winner Of The EOS Mixtape Watch

By Andrew Liszewski Thanks again to everyone who entered our EOS Mixtape watch contest. We’d love to be able to send each and every one of our readers a watch since in our minds you’re all winners, but we can’t. So once again we turned to the impartial to decide who gets it.

This time it was commenter #16, Justin Bullock, who said: “I have always wanted one of these “unique watches” like those from Tokyoflash. I like this one way more then any of the watches they have to offer!” So congratulations Justin, your ‘unique watch’ lust has just been quenched!

But those of you who didn’t win don’t have to be too upset about walking away empty handed. Today we started yet another giveaway, this time for a TiVo Premiere! So dry those tears and head on over and leave a comment for another chance to win.

And finally, if you really had your heart set on the Mixtape watch, we just want to remind you that you can still head on over to Shop Adorn, who generously sponsored this contest, and pick one up! You still have a few days if you want it to arrive by Christmas.

Reminder: Win An EOS Mixtape Watch!

The month of giving is already upon us, so we figured it was time for another giveaway. This time around we’ve got something that will particularly appeal to those of us who grew up in the 80’s, when pirating sharing music meant hooking up a couple of cassette players together for an hour or so. But that doesn’t mean this EOS Mixtape watch won’t appeal to those of you who missed the 80’s, not at all. It’s got a distinct retro charm that will appeal to even those of you who were forced to share their music via cold, heartless digital methods.

We first brought you the EOS Mixtape watch back in June when scrambling around for Christmas presents was probably the least of your worries. But now, thanks to our friends at Shop Adorn, we’ve not only had a chance to spend a little time with the watch, but we’re also giving one away which could mean one less person to buy for on your Christmas shopping list. (Or keep it for yourself!) The full contest details including how to enter are available after the jump, but first let’s take a closer look at the watch…
