Dell Makes 3 Million Thanks to Twitter

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Corporate News, Internet

Dell Outlet logoDell claims that their Outlet sales have made at least $3 million in revenue since they began subscribing to Twitter in 2007. They say that they have made money both from new sales and refurbished products. Undoubtedly much of the 650,000 following is attributed to Twitter-exclusive offers, Dell Outlet deals and Outlet-specific updates because before that time, they only had a mere 11,000 subscribers.

Holiday Gift Guide 2008: VUDU $99 for a limited time ($200 off!)

VUDU

If you, or someone you love, is a big movie buff with an HDTV, we have to recommend the Christmas Special that is going on right now. The VUDU set-top box normally sells for $299, but for a limited time it can be had for just $99. Now, you also have to buy $50 in movie credits, so the total cost would be $149, but that $50 is would go towards rentals and purchases of VUDU content, including their fantastic HDX 1080p movies. Rentals cost from $1-4 dollars, and purchases are obviously higher.

We recently reported on a lot of the Internet content that has also just made its way to the VUDU service, so all in all, we think this would make a nice gift - either for someone else, or for yourself. Our only complaint with VUDU remains that their speeds are limited, which provides a very, very poor experience if you want to rent HDX content. No matter how fast your Internet connection is, VUDU caps downloads at 4.0 Mbps. That means that my super fast 50.0 Mbps connection means absolutely nothing, and I still have to wait hours before I can watch an HDX flick. If they got rid of that, it would unleash HDX, their flagship offering. A personal niggle for sure, though. If you don’t care, pick one up!

If you miss the sale, you can typically find some nice VUDU deals on Amazon.

2008 Holiday Gift Guide: Playskool Kota the Triceratops - 50% off at Amazon

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Toys, Kids, Under $250

Kota the Triceratops

Here’s one that the kids are sure to love - Kota the Triceratops is a rideable dinosaur. Did you catch that? A life-sized baby dinosaur to be exact, Kota is 40-inches long, and has a spring-loaded seat and handle. He also sports a smile on his face, which should mean that children won’t be scared of him. Kota has 11 sensores, so it reacts intelligently to sound as well as touch. He will react by turning his head, tail, horns, or even by roaring. You can also feed him some leaves, which will cause the dino to make a munching sound. The best part? Kota sells for $299 - but Amazon is currently selling him for just $150 - that is 50% off! Better hurry though, no telling how long that deal will last.
