Morning tech deals highlights

Video Card – eVGA GeForce GTX 260 896MB PCI-Express Video Card with Far Cry 2. It starts at $210 (after a coupon code) with free shipping, but there’s a $40 rebate. Even without the rebate the cards are going for $280 or so elsewhere. [Slickdeals]

Car Care Kit – Basic spray-on Meguiar’s Quick Care Auto Detailing Kit for $10 at Amazon. Just the spray-on stuff, but the chamois is probably worth $10. Remind me to ask you guys later about polishing compounds. I think I screwed up the new paint job on the 2002 by taking it through an automatic car wash. (I know.) [Slickdeals]

HTPC Infrared…Thinger – As far as I can tell this “Antec Multimedia Station Basic” is a $25 box that fits into your PC’s 2.5-inch drive bay and adds an infrared receiver for home theater PC control. [Dealnews]

Media Streamer – Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player (for connecting to a HDTV and watching movies over the network or from attached hard drives) for $100, shipped. About $20 off. [Dealnews]

Cow or Pig Flashlight Keychains – I’m linking this mainly because I want to quote Dealnews‘ write-up: “$1.35. With free shipping, we couldn’t find a similar cow keychain for less. It features two LED emitters in the cow’s nose.” Also, the pig version is 24 cents cheaper. [Dealnews]

    The Western Digital Media Player supports up to 2 USB devices. There is no ability to play content from a network drive. No Ethernet port.

    When you’re ready for car supplies, there is only one place to go, Autogeek. For a truly solid polish you’ll need an orbital polisher, so it might be better to pay someone to do it unless you can invest ~$200 in a Porter Cable buffer.

    While I am rather cold on Woot right now, I still love shirt.woot.com. There is, every now and then, some really cool stuff on there.

    Does anybody still follow Woot any more? I used to to be a rabid Woot fan and would run the Woot-checkers during a woot-off just to make sure that I didn’t miss an item. As their popularity has grown, it appears that their prices have grown as well, so that it is very hard to find a real deal now. Also, how many MP3 players and Roombas does one person need? And don’t even get me started on the concept of a “refurb” hard drive.

    My friend has the cow flashlight, from a birthday party his non-gadgety son went to. It’s plenty bright for finding your dropped car keys or temporarily blinding a zombie.

    I’m buying a bunch of the pigs to send out with invitations to an annual camping party.

    I’ve converted a few people to the woot-ing way. One of those has been my mother, who has brought in others of the mothering demographic, and who have become devoted woot-erres for preparation of Christ’s festival.

    Also my mom screwed up my x-mass plans by getting herself and my dad some of those cheap 1gb sansa players. I was looking to getting the both some cheap refurb nanos and loading some videos. that is the blessing and curse of the Woot.
