Newegg Halloween Promo

by on October 31st, 2011

newegg.logo[1]Today hundreds of Newegg.com customers received a special gift from Newegg.com. 12 dozen eggs, and in those 12 dozen eggs there was 1 orange egg with a prize ranging from a 5 dollar gift card to a beanie.

Some even luckier Newegg customers got a special GOLDEN egg which contains a $1000 gift certificate! I believe only four lucky customers got them. I got nothing but Michael Reyes from HardwareGeeks.com won a 4GB USB stick.

Neweggs purpose of the promotion was to let all of us know that their Black Friday sales take place the entire month of November and not just that Friday and Weekend after thanks giving.

My Best Buy Holiday Wish list

by on October 31st, 2011

4032073358_ec63e763e8_oI’m a geek CuteGeek! And as a CuteGeek one of my favorite pass times is shopping, and one of my favorite places to shop at (especially during the holidays) is Best Buy and BestBuy.com. The reason is because their prices tend to blow out the competition, have a larger selection of items and typically have everything I want; from that big screen TV to that tiny keychain digital picture frame or as you can tell from my picture everything for my Wii (which I purchased last year)!

Best Buy is the spot to go to for batteries, movies, games and even some of your favorite child-hood candy since their checkout counters resemble the latest CVS – with a ton of impulse buys, that I, impulsely buy 🙂 – it’s where I go when I need an electronic that I prefer to touch and feel, instead of just checking out through a click. That’s why our first sneak-peak holiday gift guide of the season are things that I want/have/recommend from Best Buy.

by on October 27th, 2011

Halloween is around the corner so we have a “Wicked” little giveaway for all of you!

Cutegeek is giving away a pair of  Wicked Little Buds to the guy, gal or ghoul that posts the silliest (keep it clean so I can tell it to my kids) joke to this post.  These “barely-there” light weight, mini-buds are noise-isolating with an edgy look, petite, semi-glossy and available in four colors. Check out the audio demo on their site. This little bud keeps out alot and delivers sweet sound quality in a petite package.

We will choose our winner on Halloween to break out your party humor and let’s see what you’ve got.

Want to bias the judge (think “Maya”)…then I will give you a little insider tip: She is partial to knock-knock jokes….

Happy Haunting…

Firmware Update for GoFlex Satellite

by on October 26th, 2011

satellite-firmware[1]GoFlex Satellite owners there is a new firmware update for your wireless hard drive.

The new firmware is version 1.2.0.012 and it has a host of new features. My favorite being the ability to add music to a photo slide show. You also can now view your music’s album art.

This is the first update of the firmware since it was released in July. Wendy Wick had a chance to review it and she loved it. Check out her review here.

You can download the firmware and also see instructions on how to update the device here.

WD Live TV

by on October 25th, 2011

wdfWDTV_Livenetwork.jpg[1]Two weeks ago Michael Reyes from HardwareGeeks.com let me hold his brand spanking new WD TV Live streaming media player, and I have yet to give it back. He probably won’t get it back either because it’s an awesome device.

The WD TV Live allows me to stream content from my computer, or network storage device and see it on my television. I can now easily show my friends and family pictures with out them hovering around my laptop’s monitor, or I can watch Netflix, Hulu (Oh man I used to love this show called Outlaw), rent movies from Blockbuster and CinemaNow, and even listen to music from Pandora or Spotify. You will have to update your Spotify account but it is well worth it. I can even check my Facebook without opening my laptop.
