Freakin Friday! iPads for All

ipad4.jpg

The iPad has made the leap to both Target and Amazon. There are great deals for both the WiFi and WiFi/3G models in 16, 32 and 64GB models. Target credit card holders will get a 5% discount beginning October 17. Until then, purchase is only in store. Available in 16, 32, and 64GB, shop Amazon in a state that doesn't have a business presence and you get your iPad tax free and no shipping charge.

COMCAST4U Simplifies Service

comcastcallme.jpg

COMCAST4U is now accessible to some Comcast subscribers. You simply text a command to 'Comcast4U' or '266278' followed by 'NOW' to get TV, VOD, Sports and Primetime listings. There is also access to account info including 'CALLME' for customer support. Best of all, aside from it being free, is that it works with most phones and providers. The catch? It is only available in Philly and its suburbs, Jersey and Delaware until mid-2011.

Freakin' Friday! Roku Lowers Prices

roku.bmp

Hooray for competition and free enterprise. In anticipation of Google TV and other such devices, Roku has dropped the price on its SD, HD and HD-XR players. They have also announced that they will be offering 1080p later this year, although it will be limited to USB storage. Even with that limitation, it certainly takes Internet video streaming more accessible to those on a budget.

Apple to Distribute Free iPhone Bumpers

So Apple is not perfect. Steve Jobs is not perfect. The iPhone 4 is not perfect. Still with all the hoopla surrounding its imperfections, we hope the company goes beyond the quick fix of the free bumper offered to the 3 million purchasers. Get yours at the link below when they become available this week.

Amazon Acquires Woot

MonstrousConstruct.jpg

Amazon has made Woot one of its subsidiaries. While we hope that the site will not lose its cleverness after falling under the conglomerate's virtual thumb, we think that this comment posted by Woot CEO Matt Rutledge says it best:

"Over the next few days, you will probably read headlines that say "Matt Rutledge revealed to be monstrous pseudo-human creation of Jeff Bezos." You might even see this photo making the rounds. Rest assured that these rumors have nothing to do with our final decision. We think now is the right time to join with Amazon because, quite simply, every company that becomes a subsidiary gets two free downloads until the end of July, and we very much need that new thing with Trent Reznor's wife on our iPods."
