Post By Steve "fyiguy" Hughes

OK this weeks deals look to be some pretty sweet ones with several coming from Geeks.com.


They got the Xbox Elite until April 30th for $219 with code ELITE more details here with free shipping.

backup camera

Geeks.com also has a backup camera for $49 also until April 30th with code CAMDEALS.


Don put up a great review of the Pure Digital Flip Ultra Camcorder#last week here is its little brother in white –refurbished with 60 minutes of video for quite a good deal - $79.99  over at Buy.com with free shipping.


If you are looking for something to give mom for Mother’s Day Buy.com thinks she may like this Microsoft Zune 4GB Pink with Free Microsoft Zune Car Pack v2 for $74.99 with free shipping. Yeah its pink, but you can get a skin for it and customize it. :) This is cool if you have RDS in your car radio, the artist and song info from your Zune will be displayed on your radio via the FM transmitter.Pretty cool stuff and not bad considering the car kit still retails for near $79.99 in some places.


Buy.com also has the Motorola S805 DJ Style Bluetooth Stereo Headphones, which are great if your phone supports A2DP & AVRCP Bluetooth stereo. Its not in a box but is sold as new in a Poly-Bag for $29.99 with free shipping.


Don alerted me to this deal earlier in the week the Xbox 360 Motorola Gaming Headset - $12.99 Use code motoxbox360Live for additional $10 off so its $2.99 with around $10 shipping. Not a bad deal to look like John Madden or your favorite hoodie-wearing coach.



ZipZoomFly has the ASUS VK266H 25.5in Widescreen LCD Monitor 2ms 300 cd/m2 Glossy Black with 2MP webcam for$299.99 after MIR. not bad for near 26” computer display. Asus LCD is perfect for using both as an every day computer monitor for office tasks, and also perfect for playing back HD movies such as BluRay, and also gaming it has component and HDMI 1.3 inputs and SPDIF out.  It also supports HDCP so you can view BluRay in all its splendor. Another thing that is really cool is that it has Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, which analyzes the video input picture and adjusts the screen to get the very best image quality. It also has built-in 3W speakers. I am thinking of getting one of these to use a bedroom/secondary television works if you have a laptop for (Sling, Hulu, You Tube, NetFlix, Amazon)DVR, Xbox 360, or Cable box as a source. Also if you have small notebook or netbook an additional screen at almost 26” is a great accessory.


Amazon is having a sale on Samsung HDTVs. Get the Samsung LN52A750 52-Inch 1080p DLNA LCD HDTV with Red Touch of Color for $1,999.98. You’re saving 31 percent off of the original price of $2,899.99 with 120Hz Auto Motion Plus scanning (that can be turned off if you don’t need it or it bothers you), 4 HDMI 1.3 ports, InfoLink-RSS feeds of news, weather and sports right to your HDTV with a built-in Ethernet port. Granted it doesn’t have the same level of blacks as the more expensive Samsung LN52A850 52-Inch for $2299.89, but most people can’t even see the difference unless they have a very keen eye. Note newer versions have come out - one at 240Hz and another with LED backlight, but the deal on these current models is pretty good in that you also receive $200 off of select Samsung Blu-Ray Players like the Samsung BD-P1500 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player, but for an extra $69 I would opt for the Samsung BD-P1600 1080p Blu-Ray Disc Player with NetFlix and Pandora support. Both support BD Live and software upgrades. If you don’t need surround sound you can get the Samsung LN52A650 52-Inch for $1899.98 it also has a smaller bezel as a result of the lack of better surround sound speakers and a built-in subwoofer that the Samsung LN52A750 has.

kill a watt

In honor of earth week get one of these so you can see and show your family how much energy they are wasting by leaving things plugged in and on. The Kill a Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor costs just $19.99 at NewEgg will calculate electrical expenses by any period while checking the quality of your incoming power by monitoring the voltage, like frequency and power factor. Now you'll know if it's time for a new appliance, or whether new items touted as "energy saving" are actually doing their job.

Earth Day Promotion from Boston-Power#
Post By Steve "fyiguy" Hughes

Today, millions of people around the globe come together to celebrate Earth Day.  Since its founding in 1970, Earth Day has led to the passage of major environmental protection legislation, the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and many other positive actions for a cleaner, healthier, and safer environment worldwide.

Last month we had the opportunity to tour the facilities of Boston-Power, one of the companies making a difference not only in how we use technology, but also how we take responsibility for taking care of our environment. Boston-Power had announced that HP made available its new brand of eco-certified notebook PC batteries – the Enviro Series – based on Boston-Power’s next-generation Lithium-ion technology, Sonata. This marks the first time a U.S.-based battery company has ever sold battery technology to a notebook PC provider. The Enviro Series battery is compatible with more than 70 percent of HP’s consumer notebook models. As the world’s top provider of notebook PCs, that’s a very large PC user community!

Boston-Power is equally excited that HP is featuring the Enviro Series battery in its Earth Day promotion – providing customers with a great discounted price of $119.99. This makes it even easier for people to experience the great benefits of Sonata such as long life, the industry’s longest warranty (three years) and reduced environmental impact.

We at Boston Pocket PC encourage everyone to consider every day as Earth Day, since environmental responsibility is something that should be observed everyday.

BPPC Deals o’Week#
Post By Steve "fyiguy" Hughes

This is something someone at tonight’s User Group Meeting asked me to do, so I will try and post up some deals that we find on some great tech that are floating around the internet. I can’t promise to do it daily, but will try and do it at least weekly. With people getting their tax refunds back, we all want to stimulate the economy as well as feed the hunger of our Gadgetitis addiction so these are few gadget deals out there this week:

palmtreo pro

Amazon has the Palm Treo Pro unlocked and without a contract for $399 - great deal for an unlocked phone.


Amazon also has the the Zune iHome Z9B radio for $79. This is the one we saw at CES 2009 and has improved from the older iHome radio I have, in that characters on the display don’t light up the whole room(the brightness control works well) like the LCD panel on previous units. Plus the sound quality out of these radios are amazing as is the gradual increase in volume so you wake up softly and you aren’t jarred awake and you have two alarms in case you uhhemm oversleep. (Note: this doesn’t come with a remote- it is sold separately for $19 directly from iHome- the box comes with a 10% off coupon.)


Scott eVest is having an 8th Anniversary Secret Sale shhh to celebrate their of 40% off select items. Use discount code SECRET8SALE. It ends Friday April 17th so hurry to get hold of some of the best gadget clothing out there. I can’t count how many compliments I get on my SeV Ultimate Hoodie especially in airport security for some reason.

pantech headset deal

Purchase a Pantech Matrix Pro phone and get a free Jabra BT4051 Bluetooth headset by clicking on this link. (Note:  To qualify for the free BT headset, customers must add one of the following features: Unlimited messaging, $30 PDA personal, or $50 PDA personal plans)


J&R is selling the HTC S740 aka Rose unlocked with free shipping for $299.99.


Apps4Rent has got both hosted Exchange and Sharepoint on the cheap starting at $6.95/month for 1GB of Hosted exchange and 100MB of Sharepoint storage.


PPCTechs (one of my favorite places to get replacement parts and accessories for my devices) is pleased to announce their Tax Day Special by offering a 25% discount on all accessories on April 15th. Orders must be received between the hours of 12.01am and 11.59pm PST on April 15th 2009. Customers can use the discount code TAXDISC09 in the special instructions/comments field during checkout.
