We’re about halfway through this celebration of consumerism’s birthday, and so far the deals have been flowing fast and furious. Newegg, the not-so-scrappy online electronics retailer that sometimes beats Amazon on sales, has a full collection of Black Friday deals that you’ll probably want to look at.
The week of Thanksgiving is upon us, which means many holiday shoppers have begun counting down the hours to Black Friday.

We’ve already seen some terrific Black Friday deals from various retailers, but we’re not done. On Friday, Newegg released its official Black Friday 2016 promotion, advertising the various deals its customers can expect come November 25th. More →

Remember when we teased you all with this sexy new PMP from COWON and how disappointing it was to find out it was hitting Korea with no US release date? Well stop your crying already – COWON has just announced today that it will be releasing this gadget in the US a lot sooner than we all thought. With its very own GUI lovingly shown off by an AMOLED screen, this PMP most definitely a stunner with specs to match. This thing is just jam packed with tons more features than your average PMP:
- 3.3″ AMOLED touch screen, 16 million colors, 480 x 272 pixels
- 500MHz dual-core processor
- DVD-quality MPEG4 and TV output (supports AVI and WMV)
- Bluetooth 2.0 with stereo headset support
- G-sensor accelerometer
- Extended battery (11 hours video and 55 hours audio, not bad!)
- JetEffect 2.0 audio technology
- EQ Filter and stereo enhancement including BBE+, Mach3Bass, 3D Surround and MP enhance audio processing
Wondering how much this thing will cost you? For an 8GB model it’s $199.99 and a 16GB will run for $239.99 and it will be available on December 19, not January like we previously thought. We’re not sure if it will be in stores, but we know it will be available through JetMall, Newegg, Amazon, eBay and a few other online retailers. Anyone going to pick one of these up as a stocking stuffer?
It looks like Radio Shack isn’t the only green game in town when it comes to swapping out your unused gadgets for some cash. California-based Flipswap has just received a whopping $14 million in venture funding to help expand its cell phone and iPod recycling program. Pretty impressive for a “green” company in this uncertain economy. With all of you buying or planning to buy new handsets this winter season, we figure there are a lot of older, now unused handsets floating around. Yeah, some of you will go the eBay or Craigslist route but if you’re looking for an alternative way to offload your phone, you may want to check out Flipswap which will give you cash in return for your old cell phone or iPod. Flipswap is located in 6,000 retail locations and have even partnered with a few online vendors like Newegg and Amazon so you can get cash in the form of a gift card for your old phone. If your phone is too decrepit for cash, Flipswap will still take it for recycling purposes and will plant a tree in your name instead. One new tree is much better than one new handset in a landfill and this year alone Flipswap has planted an estimated 28,000 trees! BlackBerry owners in particular should take note as Flipswap recently partnered with RIM and will give you an extra $50 if you swap an old BlackBerry for a new BlackBerry. The company is also in the process of expanding its retail program so you can get cash for your old phone and apply it immediately to your new handset purchase. w00t! Flipswap is definitely worth looking into before you toss that old handset into your garbage can. Think green and recycle, y’all!
