Just a quick heads up - if you are looking to pick up a TiVo for yourself or a loved one this holiday season, look no further than the TiVo online store. If you act now, you can grab a refurbished TiVo HD for $179. In case you don’t know how good a deal that is, brand new ones sell for $299. At Costco, you can find them for $279. That’s a 40% discount, folks. The TiVo HD can record two shows at once on its dual-tuners, and can hold up to 20 hours of HD programming, or 180 hours of standard definition recordings.
Not your cup of tea? Need more storage? Well, you can go with the MyDVR Expander, which is a quick and easy way to add a ton of recording time, or you can grab a refurb TiVo Series3, which holds up to 32 hours of HD programming, for $349.

Wilmington, North Carolina volunteered to be the very first U.S. market to change to digital-only television broadcasting. While the rest of us have to wait until February, the lucky city’s Mayor Bill Saffo and FCC’s Michael Copps pulled a pseudo switch to mark the event. More than 69,000 coupons for 37,500 households in the Wilmington market were requested. Those who didn’t purchase the ATCS tuners will see a crawl at the bottom of their screen with a toll-free number to get with the plan.
Mayor Saffo said, “If nobody calls, it doesn’t mean there wasn’t a problem. And if a thousand people call it doesn’t mean this wasn’t a success. Because success is ultimately going to be measured by what we’ve learned and can put in place to do next February.”

How spooky is this? Amazon has become an Internet Costco, offering food through Amazon Grocery and is offering instant rebates to boot. Imagine saving up to 50% on Hersey’s Chocolate, up to 25% on Ragu and Bertolli Microwavable Pouches, and 50% off Bentley’s Tea. Sign up for their Subscribe & Save Service and save an extra 15% off their regular price, free shipping and automated reordering.
We were notified by the site by e-mail because we recently bought on of those kewl Automatic Shower Cleaners with a gift certificate someone had given us. We got the $30.00 to $40.00 item for about $22.00. If this is some indication of the future of home and garden products that will not only save us money but gas as well, we are all for it.

In conjunction with a company called Plano, Microsoft is hoping to put its eggs in more than one basket. Beginning in the latter part of 2008, East Coast ShopRite Supermarkets will have grocery carts with consoles to help find products, then scan and pay for them without a need for humans. Users with loyalty cards can log into a site and submit a grocery list that will appear when they reach the store, complete with automatic coupons. While this sounds feasible, we suspect we will still forget one or two items between the site and the store.

This is a sponsored post via ReviewMe, but all opinions are our own:
We know that the gadget habit can get expensive fairly quickly - trust us, we know. This is why we like sites like Dealighted. We just found out about this site, which is a tool that aggregates and arranges deals from all over the Internet in one place. They get about 650 or so new deals posted per day, and they actively monitor sites like Slickdeals, Fatwallet, and Anandtech, and identifies the most popular deals on those sites as well.
