We have been planning to launch a series of giveaways for quite some time, as we wanted to offer awards that would be outside the normal scope of what technology publications usually launch with. Thus, we are proud to introduce the cooperation with Max Borges Agency and their clients.
We contacted multiple companies represented by Max Borges Agency and after a while, we managed to secure no less than 24 awards for our respected readers.

THE AWARDS LIST
The list is quite long, so we tried to simplify it as much as possible – before the each products name, there is a number in the bracket specifying how many products we are giving away. We’re giving away more than $1,600.00 worth of products, including 3D Glasses, headphones, protection cases and many more practical gadgets.
