Amazon’s Cyber Monday: Find Great Deals and Support LGF

Lifestyle • Views: 21,792

Most people think Black Friday is the best time of the year for bargain shopping, but in actual fact you’ll often find better deals the week after. And that’s especially true at Amazon, where today marks the start of their Cyber Monday Deals Week, with unbeatable prices on HD televisions, computers (and all kinds of gadgets for those computers), cameras, watches, audio systems, you name it.

Here’s a big thing you can click to go there and check it out (if you use our link we get a small commission on anything you buy with no extra charge to you):

Here’s one example: a Seagate Barracuda 3TB hard drive for less than $100 (63% off!): Seagate Barracuda 7200 3 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare.

And if you don’t want to deal with a bare hard drive, here’s the same drive in a USB 3.0 case for only $10 more: Seagate Expansion 3 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive.

Kids lucked out when I found the last copy of the Skylanders new game for the Wii in San Diego. They thought the game wasn't even coming out for the Wii and were disappointed, so it should be a real hit Christmas morning.

USB3 is unfortunately not very mainstream yet, especially if you're a laptop person.

I picked up a USB3/1394b split box, and that was a dramatically better purchase for me. A fair number of systems are out there with 1394 but without USB3.

That's true but USB3 is compatible with USB2. The Firewire 400 (1394) bus is a better choice than USB2 if you have the port - it's significantly faster.

I have several external drive enclosures with Firewire 800, which is an even better choice, but not very common except on Macs.

Bleh, being broke sucks.

Five days until payday, the battery in my car is about to give up the ghost, and the car payment and other bills are coming up. I'd love to get this internal drive for my media server at this price, but it looks like I'm gonna miss the boat on it.

And I haven't even started Christmas shopping or have gotten my mom a birthday present (it's on the 28th) yet.

Yes, of course, USB3 is fantabulous for backwards compatability. It works, even if it seems slower than frozen dog poop. But if you can get FW800 on the laptop and USB3 on the workstation... let's just say it's a very nice and worthwhile bonus.

14 ReamWorks SKG  Mon, Nov 26, 2012 1:27:18pm

I've actually had some trouble with USB-2 devices on my USB-3 MacPro 15" Retina.

I have a USB Audio interface from Tascam that only works if I plug it into a hub. Not sure whose fault it is.

At $100, these Seagate drives are great choices for a RAID backup array.

Scott Lively Envisions a Religious Right/Progressive Grassroots Third Party Coalition

Why will ethnic minorities join us in the first place, before we’ve been able to prove ourselves champions of true social justice? We will make a simple appeal to the thing we most share in common. “Our Bond Is Family!” There’s our pitch and strategy in bumper-sticker simplicity. The typical African American or Hispanic person is generally more Christian and pro-family than the average American (as are the Russian, Eastern European, East Indian, African and Asian immigrants). RINO Republicans could never build a bridge to these minorities because they don’t share these values. But we can and should.
...

We should reach out to moderate and conservative-leaning environmentalists as well. Environmentalism is another movement we should rescue from the Marxists and rebuild on a Christian foundation. Our responsibility to be good stewards of the earth is a central tenet of Christianity, and we are certainly much more capable of fulfilling this duty in a balanced manner than the Marxists are. (Not to mention that we would do the world a great service to steer at least some portion of this powerful movement away from power-grabbing globalist goals such as Agenda 21 and “global warming” and toward authentic environmental needs.)

One key point in this arena that deserves immediate, urgent advocacy is opposition to genetically-modified foods. RINOs would never take this position for fear of alienating agri-business and mega-corporations like Monsanto, but we conservatives should.

Environmentalists might at first seem to be an impossible constituency to recruit, but Christians share an important common ground with them: an embrace of the natural and rejection of the unnatural. The most important concepts in environmentalism — bio-diversity, eco-systems, and the inter-dependence of species — rest on the clear “natural law” presupposition (central to Christianity as well) that there is an existing order in nature that should be protected by human beings. We also share a distrust of the corporate giants whose myopic pursuit of ever greater profits represents the greatest threat to the environment.

If we craft an appeal based on our common preference for the “natural” over the “artificial,” and frame this as a logical basis for deciding social policy in every area, we suddenly have a powerful unifying theme for our entire slate that could win every intellectually honest environmentalist to our side: the natural value of life vs the unnatural termination of unborn babies, natural marriage vs. un-natural homosexual unions, God-given liberty vs. man-made Statism, commerce among real persons vs. that with artificial corporate “persons,” natural foods vs. genetic experiments, a return to family farms and rejection of agri-business, a return to natural remedies and rejection of Big Pharma, etc..

Its as simple as that apparently.

It's not big enough to completely cover a horse's head, and it doesn't provide enough air flow for them, either. I guess it doesn't matter. Even if those problems were fixed, it didn't convince my daughter her horse wasn't dead. Thanks a lot, Accoutrements.

Nut is, I think, the right word. In the US I'd consider him a Brievik flavored RWNJ, with editorials ascribing our coming downfall to immorality and tolerance of the other. Just do a quick google on his name if you want to feel that slime.

Lemme see, a bitter old fundie fart (Fischer) quoting a bunch of bitter fundies (Beck/The Blaze), who are quoting a Russian media outlet who was, during Communist times, one of the biggest Soviet state media organs and who is still very pro-authoritarian and very pro-Putin, IIRC.

Tell me that isn't some sort of fucked up right there...

I just won't touch Seagate drives anymore. With a dismal 1 year warranty and a high failure rate, this might be ok for a "junk" drive, but I'd never again store anything important on these things. That being said, my 10+ year old Seagate IDE drive is still running like a champ.

I just did a new build with a de-lidded 3770K and a Crucial m4 SSD. SSD really is legit. Maybe in a few years, the capacity/$ ratio will be better.

I hear you - Seagate's reputation with these low-end drives isn't very good. But at $100 for 3 TB, they're perfect for a RAID array - lots of storage, very cheap, easily swapped out if they fail.

I got a couple to use in a RAID setup I'm putting together, we'll see how reliable they are.

49 Kaessa  Mon, Nov 26, 2012 5:06:04pm

JUST bought that hard drive 2 weeks ago at $150. Still sitting in a box with the rest of my computer parts (mobo/processor/ram/etc) because I forgot to order the 256GB SSD that's going into the build.
