Is there anything not to like about Halloween? The correct answer is an emphatic, "No!" Think about it for a second --after spending an evening stocking up on free candy and watching horror movies while munching on roasted pumpkin seeds, you can then head over to Steam and stock up on discounted games as part of the service's annual Halloween sale. Ah, life doesn't get any better. No need to wait until tonight if you don't want to, Steam's Halloween sale is taking place right now, and there are some big savings to be had. For example, you can pick up Contraption Maker for $1.49, down 90 percent... Read more...
As the run-up to the annual holiday shopping season gets ever closer, major companies are unveiling their newest wares and putting them on sale just in time. Amazon's in that bunch as well, sprucing up its tablet line, revising its Android-based Fire OS, and even introducing a fancy new Kindle for those who'd prefer to stick to the basics of reading in outdoor light. Perhaps the most notable addition is the new Fire HD tablet, which is available in a 6" form factor for the first time. That one's shipping for just $99, which places Amazon in competition with a slew of other lower-end makers who... Read more...
It's not exactly a hot time for tablet shopping -- back-to-school is pretty far out, and the holidays are behind us. Which probably explains why Amazon is trying to jumpstart the movement of its Kindle Fire HDX. If you're still in the market, your patience has paid off: for a limited time, the heralded slate is being offered with a $30 discount, pricing the base model at $199 instead of the usual $229. Amazon's not saying how long the offer will last, but it has routinely done 24 hour offers in the past. The 16GB unit is the $199 model, while doubling that capacity to 32GB will put you at $239....

Still looking for a last-minute gift? What about two gifts? How about a gift for you, and a gift for someone else? You really do deserve a gift for being so thoughtful on Christmas Eve! Today only, Best Buy stores are offering up a pretty insane deal on a phone that is typically impossible to find a deal on: Apple's iPhone 4. The company is selling the 32GB model on Verizon or AT&T in a BOGO arrangement -- in other words, buy one get one free. You'll sadly need to visit a local store (no online deal, sorry), and it all ends at 5PM. You'll have to agree to a new 2-year contract on each one,... Read more...
Apple is planning to get in on the Black Friday shopping frenzy by discounting several of its products on November 25th, 2011. We're not talking about huge savings that would classify anything as a steal, but you could pocket as much as $101 over the normal price, depending on which Apple product you're shopping for. A tipster sent in an Apple Black Friday flyer to 9to5Mac.com, who dutifully posted it online. The deepest discount, as we just mentioned, is $101, and it applies to a number of iDevices, including the MacBook Air (marked down to $898), MacBook Pro ($1,098), and iMac ($1,098). Discounted...

And, well, that's that. First off the block, then on the block, and now off again. The drama that has surrounded Hulu in recent months came to an abrupt end this past week, as the company decided to "terminate the sale process" before it was ever truly near its logical completion. The following is a joint statement from Hulu owners News Corporation, Providence Equity Partners, The Walt Disney Company and the Hulu senior management team: “Since Hulu holds a unique and compelling strategic value to each of its owners, we have terminated the sale process and look forward to working together...

Here's an idea for tablet makers who are striving to compete with Apple: sell your device for $99. We know, that's no way to actually stay in business, but it's working like a charm for HP, even after the company announced that the TouchPad was a dead product this past week. Shortly after the company made clear that this was the end of the road for webOS devices, a few Canadian e-tailers began to sell the product for $99 (16GB) / $149 (32GB). Tremendously cheap prices considering the $499 starting point just a month or so ago. Furthermore, that sale soon spread south, with some American companies... Read more...
After reports surfaced that News Corp. is considering selling Myspace, a News Corp. spokeswoman has confirmed that the company is exploring “strategic options” for Myspace. News Corp. purchased Myspace in 2005 for $580 million. Since then, the social networking site has struggled in comparison to its competitor, Facebook. Reports that News Corp. was looking into options for Myspace surfaced after the social network cut 500 employees, which is nearly 50 percent of its staff. The Wall Street Journal, also owned by News Corp., reported the Mike Jones, chief executive of Myspace, had told... Read more...
All those who were angry on Sunday, please calm down. Despite the fact that the sales force and the computers seemed to think it was a one-week promotion, that price drop to $99 for the Palm Pre on Sunday was nothing more than a glitch. The confusion began when a picture of an in-store banner promoting a week long special of a $99 Pre with a 2-year contract was posted online. While it turns out it was a mistake, and announced as such via Twitter by Best Buy marketing manager John Bernier on Sunday afternoon, the deal somehow got programmed into vendor systems and people were able to walk into retail...

Data Robotics has a good thing going with its Drobo smart storage line, and if you've been waiting on the sidelines looking to jump in, now might be the perfect time. Just months after introducing its DroboPro SMB/SOHO storage solution, the company has launched its "Drobo Gives Back" program to provide even more incentive to buy now.From today until June 30th, a $100 instant rebate applies to the purchase of Drobo or any Drobo bundle. You heard right -- when buying a Drobo from any of its resellers worldwide (as well as the Drobo online store for US and Canada), you'll get a nice, crispy Benjamin... Read more...
You'll probably remember the portent of things to come: New York State's new sales tax on Internet retailers, which went into effect in June. Both Amazon.com and Overstock.com have sued over the tax, in fact, which was written so as to apply "physical presence" to retailers who had affiliates (generally, web sites advertising for the retailer) based in New York. Formerly, only retailers which an actual brick-and-mortar presence in a state were required to collect sales tax. New York legislators went so far as to nickname the new tax the "Amazon tax." The announcement was made to Newegg customers... Read more...
If this was in the U.S., you can bet Jack Thompson would be all over it.  Since it's Thailand, not exactly a media-friendly country, we may never hear about it again, except perhaps in shareholder reports. Police claim that the youth showed no sign of mental instability while he was being questioned. He told police that he hadn't intended to kill the 54 year old driver. "He said he wanted to find out if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the game," said the police chief. A government official with Thailand's Cultural Surveillance Center told Reuters: "This time-bomb has... Read more...
In the real estate world, there's an old saying explaining the three reasons for the relative value of properties: Location; location; location. One prime location that was verboten for realtors has been the Internet. The National Association of Realtors had obstructed member realtors from using the Internet to mine the Multiple Listing Service for their clients. The Department of Justice didn't like the anti-competitive nature of only allowing traditional brokers access to the MLS, and filed suit in Chicago to end the practice. They've now reached a settlement with the NAR, and Internet-based... Read more...
"Weird" simply isn't sufficient to describe this laptop, now being auctioned at eBay.I purchased this a few years back as a project but it just ended up sitting in my closet. This is a rare Xentex Dual Screen Laptop. Each screen is 13.3" and one pivots so that one can be facing you and the other one facing the person sitting on the other side of the laptop. This was a prototype and is missing some parts but does turn on so I have no doubt someone can make this work with the right skills.This has to be the worlds largest laptop when unfolded which measures about 19.5" across when you unfold it....
