CIA task force created to look into WikiLeaks; needs a better acronym

The United States’ clandestine security group — the Central Intelligence Agency — has created a task force to, as the Washington Post reports, “assess the impact of the exposure of thousands of U.S. diplomatic cables and military files by WikiLeaks.” The article goes on to note that the WikiLeaks Task Force is better known around the Agency by its acronym: WTF. We would like to take this opportunity to snicker at the task force’s acronym choice. Oh the double-entendre, what a fickle mistress you are. More →

Pre-order a Nokia N97 for $454.35 with free Bluetooth headset

Pre-order a Nokia N97 for $454.35 with free Bluetooth headset

It seems that Nokia USA knew a lot of people weren’t too pleased with the crazy $700 pre-order price on the N97, but a new promotional price has us wondering if initial interest in the handset is a bit lacking. Entering in the promotional code CARTP409N will not only allow Americans to pre-order the flagship slider for $454.35, but Nokia will throw in a BH-703 Bluetooth headset as well. The strangest thing? Earlier today, a different promotional code had the N97 and BH-703 going for $524.25. If you’re even remotely interested in an N97 or want to push your luck with a quick resale, head the read link and order an N97 now. Then again, it might be even cheaper tomorrow…

UPDATE: It looks like this steep discount may have been an error — congrats if you managed to get it and Nokia honors it. The coupon code now eliminates the free headset and provides a slim 10 percent discount bringing the price of the phone alone to $629.10. Pass.
