Bamfas.com #1 weekly want
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series
It has been called the greatest show ever (often by me) for a good reason. The set includes every episode over 39 DVDs. If you have not seen the show before, this is a great chance to see it for the first time. Sure it is on Netflix instant streaming but the collectors set’s packaging is a must for fans with worn down and possible played out discs.
Deal details: 64% off right now for $72.99 on [Amazon.com]
The tidy tech deal of the week
Flexicord HDMI cable
If you are anything like me then you have a mess of tangled cables behind your tv. You can try to stash it but it just never wants to stay hidden. This handy cable uncoils to the exact you need. Since they don’t recoil, they come with a recoiler if you need to adjust the length.
Deal details: $9.99 on [Amazon.com] The DIY, Moar Power!! Deal of the week
Dual USB outlet
I dare you to not want this! Perfect addition to your home office that is lacking outlet space. No more deciding what to unplug because your phone is about to croak. If you are worried about installation, it does come with detailed step by step instructions.
When Amazon brought the Kindle Fire to the market the race turned to a new price, the $200 mark. Today ARCHOS has taken up the challenge and brought the ARCHOS 70b IT, it’s an enhanced 70 IT using an upgraded screen and a 1.2GHz processor to get the job done.
Users will get Android 3.2 with full functionality including a regular marketplace, this means games, books and more will get delivered unrestricted. The full functionality of the OS remains in-tact, leaving the smooth transitions and quick navigation unharmed. Overall it’s shaped up to compete with just about everyone out there.
Here are some key details:
Android 3.2 (Honeycomb)
7″ 1024×600 display
512MB of RAM
Integrated GPU (unspecified)
1.2 GHz CPU (unspecified, the 70 used an ARM A8)
8GB of storage
Micro SD Card support
What does all of that mean? The 1.2 GHz CPU should be more than enough to power most games now, in the future that might be a problem though. More titles are starting to favor Dual-Core setups and are blocking single core chips out of the market. For now it should be a beast for processing with lots of speed to last for the years to come, the 512MB of RAM will actually help that stay true. The display resolution is a solid fit for a 7″ screen, dense enough to not be frustrating to read text but not so poor as to look choppy.
Overall ARCHOS is laying down a tablet for the now and it should hold its own for a few years to come in entertainment apps and even more in standard browsing and composition.
The 70b is set to arrive in stores after the holiday season with January arrivals starting at $199, give it a bit of time and dig up more info on the ARCHOS homepage once they get the listing up for the new tablet.
