$40 PlayStation 3 removed from Target’s website

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2011

Apparently some lucky folks may be getting a PlayStation 3 for just $39.99. We think. Of course word spread quickly about this promotion and thousands of orders must have been made while it was up. However, some 8 hours later, it was removed from the internet, replaced by an Error 404 page. It’s unclear if this was a mistake or a promotion, since Target and Amazon both listed the PlayStation 3 console for sale at $40. Our guess is a mistake, since $40 for a PS3 is just ridiculous.

But if you bought one, the PlayStation 3 console was legally purchased, so Target is bound to ship the console. And if that is accurate, the company is going to have some heavy losses because of this snafu.

Apple iPad heading to Target next month

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 26th, 2010

Looks like the news just got more official. Soon you will be able to get an iPad at Target, along with some TP and real pads for your girlfriend.

Target will begin carrying Apple’s iPad on Oct. 3, just like we reported earlier, at its normal retail price starting at $500. Those with Target credit cards will be eligible for a 5-percent discount on the device.

iPad headed to Target on October 3rd?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2010

Apple iPad launchRumor is that the iPad might hit Target stores in October. There’s no concrete proof yet, but some info from a tipster seems to suggest just that. Among the compelling evidence is a list featuring a mysteriously unnamed product that’s set to become available on October 3rd (in six different versions), and a series of images from a Target PDA that seem to show that the item numbers match the iPad prices exactly.

Also it will be located in the Digital Audio section, which is apparently how e-readers like the Kindle are classified, as well as iPods.

Kindle hitting Target stores on June 6

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on June 2nd, 2010

For some, a Kindle can be a large purchase. The kind of purchase that you would feel better about if you could see the device first hand. Plus it might be nice to be able to pick up some toilet paper and snacks at the same time, right?

Luckily for you, Amazon’s finally putting Kindles out into retail nationwide through Target stores. A trial run in April got the e-reader into Target’s flagship store and 102 other retail locations in south Florida, but now the $259 e-ink device will be available all over on June 6th.

Kindle rumored to hit Target shelves on April 25th

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

I don’t know about you, but when I’m shopping for ebook readers, Target isn’t the first place on my list to look for them. But hey why not? Barnes & Noble offer the Nook eBook reader at Best Buy stores. And rumor is that the Kindle eBook reader might be getting ready to sit on Target shelves. The rumored date is April 25th.

It will be interesting to see what happens with sales between the Kindle, Nook and iPad. Maybe the Kindle will show up at Walmart too before too long.

Target unveils TV delivery and install service across the country

Posted in Home Theater by Shane McGlaun on January 18th, 2010

Everybody needs at least one geek friend. After all, who else are you going to call if your computer won’t work or you need your new TV setup? If you lack a geek friend, you will need to break down and pay someone that works for actual money rather than beer and pizza.

Target has announced a new TV delivery and install service perfect for those without a geek in their friends list. The service will deliver, setup, and train you how to use a HDTV starting at $99. If you want that new TV mounted to the wall it starts at $199.

Target cashiers now play a “game” at the register

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2009

Target cashiers now play a "game" at the registerLooks like Target cashiers now play a “game” when they check you out at the register. The score depends on how fast you’re doing your job. And yes, we realize that this game sucks and looks like no fun at all. But hey, that’s life working at Target right? I’ve played games on a watch that are more interesting than this.

It sounds like a great way to shame employees into working faster. Especially after a few cashiers start acting all snooty because they hold the high score. Then you want to put them in their place and beat them. But only “the man” wins in this scenario.

Target’s remote control gift card

Posted in R/C Toys by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2009

Target's remote control gift cardTarget has something new up its sleeve this holiday season. A Remote Control Gift Card which looks like a slab of Swiss cheese. The remote controls a tiny red car with a mouse inside. You can do the usual RC car thing, moving it forward and back.

The Target Remote Control Gift Cards will start at $25 all the way up to $1,000. That’s one expensive piece of cheese with a mouse car. Still, it’s a nifty idea. I wonder how they will upgrade the gift card next.

Target video game reservation program unveiled

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on April 17th, 2009

targetreservationcardOne of the worst parts about being an avid gamer is that it can be hard to find the newest and coolest video games the day they launch. I have been trying to get a copy of Mario Kart for the Wii for months and can’t find it.

Target has announced a new video game reservation program that is a bit easier to swallow than many pre-order programs that require you to pay for the entire purchase price of the game. The Target program has little cards, which look like gift cards. You pay $1 for the reservation cards and guarantee yourself a copy of whatever game the card is for.

Target gift cards are also digital cameras

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

Target gift cards are also digital camerasWe aren’t sure what to think about this one. Target is getting creative with their gift cards again. You can consider it either a gift card with a digital camera, or a digital camera with a gift card. Either way, it’s all good. This holiday season, Target will begin selling the combo gift card/digital camera, which is an interesting approach. It will give customers some added value to what is otherwise a pretty boring purchase.

The camera features a 1.2MP sensor with 50MB of storage. It comes bundled with a USB cord, driver disk, instruction manual and a voucher for 40 free prints at Target. It’s powered by two AAA batteries. So rest assured, Target’s battery sales will be way up this year. The digital camera gift certificates will be available at no additional charge, unless you order it online. They are available in values from $50 to $1000.


Peek handheld focuses on e-mail only

Posted in email by Conner Flynn on August 20th, 2008

Peek handheld focuses on e-mail onlyLooking for a device that does email and only email? Well here’s a new handheld from Peek and it will only handle your e-mails.

Sure, you can scoff and say what the hell is that about, but it may just catch on. Think of the older generation, you know the ones who can handle email but can’t figure out iPhones and such. It’s only real hurdle is pricing, which will be $99.95 when it hits Target next month. Oh, and $19.95 per month to send unlimited e-mails over T-Mobile’s network. Ouch!

Target Speed Racer gift card flash drive

Target Speed Racer gift card flash drive
Target sure knows how to market themselves. Warner Brothers does too. The proof is in these awesome gift cards. Target’s Wii cards looked really cool, sure. But these Speed Racer themed cards feature a USB flash drive which makes them useful too. They include an integrated inch-long USB cable that’s flush in the card and is released via a mechanical switch on the bottom edge. The cards only hold about 62.8 MB, but the upside is that 51.6 MB of that is packed with awesome Speed Racer promotional materials. Stuff like a PDF coloring book featuring the Mach 5 and other vehicles, coupons for Speed Racer toys, wallpaper, videos and even a cheat code for the Wii Speed Racer game.

The cards are obviously a team-up between Target and Warner Brothers, to promote the new Speed Racer movie. It’s a pretty smart idea. I’m not sure if you are required to actually put any money on them or not.

Photo frame with viruses sold at major retailers

Photo frame with viruses sold at major Retailers
Has there been a week recently when China-made products have not been in the news? Normally it’s tainted food and toxic lead. Now it’s a malicious virus-infected digital photo frame. Computer Associates identified it as Mocmex , “a nasty worm that has a great deal of intelligence” and “a nuclear bomb of malware”.

It’s a malicious self-propagated worm that has been steadily spreading worldwide with variants of over 67,500 kinds. That’s cause for some concern. It was first identified as a Trojan horse that collected passwords from online games, but after further study, it’s able to get around more than a hundred antivirus vendors as well as Windows security layers. Now it could potentially collect personal and private data.
