Morning tech deals highlights

Band of Brothers – I already own Band of Brothers on DVD, but Amazon has dropped the Blu-ray version to $35 today (from $100) and I've just bought it again. I was skeptical that there would be any real difference since BoB was only ever shown in SD on HBO, but from the reviews it sounds like it must have been shot on film, allowing for an HD resolution in Blu-ray. It's one of my very favorite movies or television shows ever. I watch it at least a couple of times a year from start to finish. [Amazon] ⌦ All-in-one printer – Epson Stylus NX400 color photo all-in-one inkjet printer for $60, shipped. Seems like a nice little unit for the price. Normally sells for around $100. [Dealhack] ⌦ Rolando – Ngmoco's Rolando game for the iPhone has been dropped to $6, down from the original $10 I paid and didn't regret one bit. It's a killer title and a load of fun to play and show off. [iTunes] ⌦ Pro Camcorder – Amazon is selling the Panasonic AG-HMC70PJ AVCHD 3CCD Flash Memory Camcorder for $1,204, shipped. That's about $700 off the price available from B&H, but I can't find anything out on the web to indicate if this is a good product or not. (Panasonic tends to make very nice camcorders all the way up to their professional models, but it's strange there appears to be no reviews out there on this model at all.) Still, 1080i recording, 12x optical zoom, SDHC support, XLR inputs, quarter-inch CCD, HDMI and BNC Component outputs — this is a heavy duty camera. [Dealnews] ⌦ Stapleless Staper – With this $3 plastic tube you can staple up to three sheets of paper together without using a physical metal staple at all. [Dealnews] ⌦ Sonos Multi-Room – We may have thumped on Sonos a bit in the past, but for multi-room setups that want perfectly synced music, there's really not a better option — especially when paired with the new Sonos iPhone/touch controller application. Best Buy is selling a multi-room system with a ZonePlayer 80, 100, and a wireless controller for $500 with in-store pick-up. That's half-price; I wonder if there's a new package from Sonos in the works? (I haven't heard anything.) Update: Sonos tells us, "Nothing on the near horizon." [Dealnews] ⌦ Mini Bluetooth Dongle – Tiny USB Bluetooth dongle for $3, perfect for a netbook and external mouse. [Dealnews] ⌦ R/C Cars – Today's Woot are the Excalibur Electronics Micro Zoomer desktop R/C cars in a 2-pack for $18, shipped. Photo: 1leve

    ‘Awesome Deal.’

    THAT’S IT! I was thinking, ‘Band of identical twin sisters’ or something.

    Band of Brothers on Blu-ray does look great; it was indeed shot on film. Definitely worth the fortyish bucks I paid. AND evidently, a new semi-unrelated series, The Pacific, is in development with Spielberg and Hanks again producing. Can something be semi-unrelated? You know what I mean.

    I think the link for the printer is missing. Which is sad, because I need to buy a printer.

    Please don’t buy an Epson printer. They fill up the landfills because they sell the ink for such a high price that people save money just buying a new printer. Lots of people don’t live in cities that have refill stores. Better to spend a little more and buy a printer that doesn’t take 70 dollar ink cartridges.

    Printer link added. Sorry about that!

    Logitech’s Squeezebox line can sync up multiple rooms and it’s a bit cheaper than the Sonos stuff.
