Wyzecam might work for the kids rooms...

I guess I should buy a few.

I've got 3! Awesome cat cams for when we are away from the house.
Thank you!!! I can't believe they are $20. It's madness.

I've set up a bunch of Wyze cams; very nice! Sadly, the ones pointed outward through windows don't do well at night, as their infrared gets reflected by the pane and they blind themselves. Turning the infrared off just means... it's dark. Still, you can't beat the price and the free cloud storage.

Wyze is announcing some kind of new device ("a new indoor camera") on Wednesday. Not sure how this differs from their previous indoor camera, but I'll take a look.

What a journey.
I don't know if those deals are applicable, but to add the affiliate code to any BH link, add "/BI/1940/KBID/2629" to the end.

I'm going to be adding an Amazon Affiliate search box to the site soonish.

found it!!! :)

Are any Sporkers interested in an early 2016 (which means 2015 design) Razer Blade 14"? Windows 10, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage, 970M GPU. This is my GOOD Razer Blade, in that I never had any problems with it, as opposed to it's 2017 17" cousin.

$600 for Sporkers, cheap carrying bag, 2 AC adapters, I'll pay shipping to the lower 48 states. I truly believe that this is a good deal if you're looking for a gaming PC, with the understanding that it is a couple of years old. I know of no issues with it*, but am selling it as-is.

Send a PM message if interested, or for questions about it.

*Its battery drains rapidly in storage... low in a week, run down in two. Not sure why that would be; I've mostly used it while plugged in, but it runs fine on battery as long as you don't expect to do a lot of high-end gaming untethered!

A bunch of 2016 MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops (new, not refurbished) being dumped on woot.com. Most, but not all, come with a full Apple warranty.

All this alleged by Gizmodo.

All gone. Eh, didn't look like mind-blowing deals.

In the market for an Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular, and a 27" iMac that's 2013 or newer. If you're sitting on one, let me know.

I had an annoying eBay buyer welsh on my 42mm stainless Series 3 so I was figuring on just keeping it, but I'd let it go to a Sporker for $440.

Ah, should've been more specific - looking for a 38mm aluminum. Tried selling on Swappa? Great experience.

Revising my desktop search to include a 2010/2012 Mac Pro. With a modern graphics card, it'll be faster than all but the most recent iMacs and still run Mohave.

Thanks, I'll take a look at Swappa. I still basically enjoy eBay for stuff like secondhand clothes but recent/desirable tech on there is a nightmare of lowballers and petty scammers.

Exactly why Swappa was created. All the IMEI scams. Swappa verifies that shit. I've found that without the auction pressure, prices tend to get bargained down a bit, but YMMV.

And to add, they use PayPal so as a seller you can still run into PayPal's extremely buyer-friendly policies. Read that someone will demand a refund for an iPhone that "wasn't working" several months after purchase, and PayPal sides with them as long as it's been under 6 months. That'll happen anywhere, but Swappa has less of that, being a smaller, enthusiast community even now.

BTW, some great deals on the LTE Series 3 watches if anyone's considering the Dick Tracy life. A cell version for $215!

New year. Same me. Proceed accordingly.
So what would the tea leaves say about there being no refurbs available for Apple TV?

New year. Same me. Proceed accordingly.
Also: I seem to recall folks looking for older hardware... this is one source I've used in the past. It appears they have 2012 MBPs (among many other models).

does it have a dial-up modem? :)

Someone asked about those intermittent eBay discounts. There's a 10% off code, capped at $100 discount, for the next 24 hours.

me. thanks.

No problem! Recently they seem to be doing these codes about once a month, so I guess this is the last one until the Thanksgiving/Black Friday insanity.

B&H notified they will start collecting state sales tax (for me).
