Amazon gets Black Friday started early, shows off a few deals

You’re thinking about it. Your spouse is thinking about it. Your kids are thinking about it. And yes, your NXE Avatar is thinking about it, too. Black Friday is but hours away, and you still haven’t conjured up the courage to get up at 3:00AM and venture out to save a grand total of $14.97 (pre-tax). Never fear, as the world’s most spectacular e-tailer is here with a slew of deals to keep you firmly planted. Amazon’s going all out on the day after Thanksgiving, but it’s also giving early birds the opportunity to snag a few specials on the run-up to the big day. We won’t spoil anything here, but be sure and give the read link a look if you’re all about saving some dough and staying home.

Roll-up mouse pad encloses a hub, speakers, and our hearts

Roll-up mouse pad encloses a hub, speakers, and our hearts

While our minds know that today’s mice, particularly those with lasers, work just fine on virtually any (non-moist) surface, that doesn’t stop our hearts from missing the soft, forgiving feel of our home mousing surface while on the road.

Sure, just about any pad can be made into a tube and stuffed into a carry-on, but if you pack this one you’ll also get a 4-port USB hub and dual, side-firing speakers out of the deal. Sure, the build quality may be sub-par (check the jagged plastic after the break), but for $22 this could make that hotel suite a little bit more inviting for you and that special peripheral you’ll be cradling all night.
