Target and Best Buy had them earlier this summer, but nothing lately. I'd love some discounts to subscribe to all of the TV shows returning this Fall.
And, I think Apple products/cards are completely gone from Costco.
Best Buy has $50 iTunes cards for $45 thru the end of today. Well worth it.

Beat me to it


here's another


This week at CVS buy $50.00 worth of iTunes Gift Cards and you'll get $10 extra-care bucks back. True this is not as good as cash, but if you already shop for CVS deals in general this is a pretty slick deal.

Our problem-child white MacBook died again; this time it's not under warranty. So,

But, I broke down and ordered a small MacBook Air for work though, so
One last fondle of it at Best Buy finalized it.


My current white MacBook will take the dead one's place as our A/V laptop/iTunes machine in our entertainment center.

My Macbook battery is swollen and protruding out of its slot. A Google search says that it could explode or catch fire, but the computer store guy I just called said, "Nah, just keep using it. Or buy a new one." (Yeah, he would say that.) It's not under warranty. I took out the supposed ticking time bomb and am currently running on cord only. A new battery from the Apple Store costs $129.99. Yippee.

So where is the best place to buy a replacement Macbook battery? Has anyone found some good deals that aren't from questionable Chinese companies?

I bought one non-Apple battery for my MacBook, and it crapped out within 6 months. I'd go with Apple or find an aftermarket place that has gotten lots of excellent reviews.

I found a site called BatteryNerds.com that has a one-year guarantee, but it might be cheaper to just go to a computer store nearby. BatteryNerds sells them for around $63 and they charge $8 shipping; there aren't any customer reviews yet on any of the batteries I've looked at, though, which is odd. For now, I have the power cord taped on so it won't come unplugged accidentally, since it happened twice already.

Newegg.com - macbook battery

The Lenmar battery sounds promising for the same price as the BatteryNerds one. Same thing?

Oh hey, thanks! I've seen commercials on TV for NewEgg.com but completely forgot about them. The reviews look promising; I might just have to go with this one.

It makes for a lighter laptop.

Because I'm too lazy/busy to run a Google search and because I know there are Mac-fans here who would know - what's the deal with the iPad3? Basically I would like to know whether I should shell out for an iPad 2 next month or wait for the next one? If it's going to be a very long time/minimal update then I may as well bite the bullet now.

There is also word that Apple might be coming out with an iPhone 5 sometime next month.

Quote:
Apple plans to unveil its next generation iPhone next month, technology blog AllThingsD said Wednesday.
AllThingsD cautioned that Apple could "change its plans anytime," but said the present plan calls for Apple's new chief executive Tim Cook to preside over the launch of the iPhone 5 on October 4.
The thing with Apple is that when they come out with something new, just buy the previous version and it's just as good, and if you are lucky it might be affordable.
