We’re giving three LG XBoom Go Bluetooth speakers (one each) to the following winners

It's been a busy month here at the Stuff offices. Nearly busy enough to make us forget that we're giving away three LG Bluetooth speakers to three lucky winners. That's one speaker each, rather than three speakers per winner. It's important to be clear up-front. It save yelling later on.

LG’s G8 ThinQ will use its screen as a speaker

So much for speculative. LG, contrary to what the company's Ken Hong had to say a few weeks back, has revealed that it's indeed chucking the speaker in the upcoming G8 ThinQ.
