Get $2 Off Your XO Skins Order

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 04:54 PM

We did a Quick Look of the XO Skins for iPhone 4 over at Apple Thoughts, and the XO Skins folks were generous enough to give us a code for $2.00 USD off their products. XO Skins makes protective covers for a wide variety of products (not just Apple stuff), so if you want to partake, use the code APPLETHOUGHTS2OFF. I believe the code will work on any of the products they sell at XO Skins, and is good until 12/31/2010.

Pre-Order Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade for $49.99, Limited Time Offer

You'll have to excuse the network-wide broadcast (well, except Apple Thoughts of course), but I thought this was something that everyone would want to know about: Microsoft is offering the forthcoming Windows 7 at a steep discount, but only for a limited time. Until July 11th, you can purchase Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade for $49.99 USD (that's an Amazon affiliate link, so your purchase helps support Thoughts Media). The normal price of Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade is $119.99 USD, so that's a very significant level of savings ($70 to be precise). You can also pick up Windows 7 Business Upgrade for $99 if you want that version. When Windows 7 is released on October 22nd, Amazon will ship you the software.

The Windows 7 upgrade will work on a computer with Windows Vista or Windows XP installed. If you have an older computer, you may want to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to make sure your computer is ready for Windows 7, but in general any computer built in the past four years should be able to run it just fine. Windows 7 is lighter on resources and works well across a broad spectrum of hardware.

Got a netbook? Then you'll want to take advantage of this offer as well - I'm running the Windows 7 Release Candidate on an MSI Wind, and an HP Mini 1000, and it works really well on both of them. I think Windows Vista is a fine operating system, but Windows 7 is even better - it addresses many of the concerns that people had with Windows Vista and adds a degree of polish that means everything is easier to use.

Unfortunately, this offer is only valid in the USA and Canada (Canadians can order from Amazon.ca, Future Shop, and Best Buy). as far as I can tell. Europe is getting a different version of Windows 7 due to the lawsuits Microsoft is undergoing there.

Zune Hits Closeout Shelves Already?

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Zune Talk" @ 08:00 AM

http://crunchgear.com/2007/01/29/zune-goes-discount-causes-289-million-loss-for-microsoft/

"...Over the weekend we stopped by our local overstock and discount store in Seattle and were shocked—shocked!—to find a stack of nearly a dozen brand-new, unopened Zunes selling at $168. That’s about 25% off the going rate of $229 we’ve been seeing around ze Web, making it a good deal for someone looking for a Zune. The question is, however: Is there actually anyone looking for a Zune? Or did everyone who wanted one get one? Or are these simply a few units that fell through the cracks into a ghetto scratch-and-ding store? The numbers above mean these could all be possibilities."



With Microsoft reporting a $289 million loss, it doesn't make me happy to see Zunes selling for $168 (especially since I paid full retail for mine). I'd say this is the exception to the rule though - don't expect to find these at your local dollar store. We know they're not flying out of inventory, but I think it's too early to see them on the promo shelf.
