Imagine getting a great deal on gift cards, only to have the retailer take them away -- without explanation -- the next time you try to shop there. This real-life nightmare is currently playing out for CinemaNow customers, who watched helplessly as thousands of dollars disappeared from their accounts last weekend.
Welcome back from the President's Day weekend! Hopefully everyone managed to grab a few deals during the shopping holiday (at least for those of us in the U.S.), but now it's time to get back to business. Today we've got a recap of all the stuff you may have missed from the last three days, so dig in and get caught up so you're not left wondering what your friends are talking about...
So we can all settle down now that the new year is upon us and we can all get right back up to excited because CES is coming up next week, which means ever so much gear and so many new apps that will make your life simpler, funner, happier, more productive. At any rate, until the release date of those devices, we'll have to content ourselves with these sweet deals.
We don't know if there's anything hotter in the hopper than the Frys.com iPhone 5 deal we posted earlier today. But that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of interesting stories worthy of your attention this week. For example, what's up with Instagram? And how do you like the idea of your DVDs--in the cloud? Find out about this and more inside.
With fears of a Mayan apocalypse behind us, we can now get back to our hopes and dreams for the future -- such as an iTunes Match-like service to convert our DVDs into a cloud-based movie library. (It's not here quite yet, but CinemaNow has something pretty close.)
Hear ye, hear ye! There's a deal afoot on Apple's coveted iPhone 5, and we've got all the details in our weekend recap today. But even if you're not in the market for a new smartphone, there's plenty more that happened over the weekend, so you'll want to read on and make sure you don't miss out on a single moment.
Call us rebels, but we can't condone phony limitations such as data caps or restrictions on cloud storage. That's why the quiet introduction of a $4.95 unlimited plan to Pogoplug Cloud piqued our interest on Friday. Unlimited cloud storage for dirt cheap with no file size limits? The mere idea makes us want to ditch Dropbox, Box and all the rest of 'em. If that's how you feel, read on to find out if the dream of an unlimited cloud actually delivers.
With the potential iPad mini rumor still hot and fresh and percolating out there, we expect next week will be a hot week of leaks, "leaks," and speculation from unnamed sources. Heck, we even have a little of that this week. Meanwhile, other tablets are out there, breaking even, and we've got some reviews and some one on one comparisons. So let's go see what happened this week.
As the holiday shopping season fast approaches, retailer Best Buy is planning to shrug off concerns that many internet users are simply using their stores as a showroom for products purchased online by price matching.
It's been more than a year since torrential rain and floods in Thailand started impacting hard drive factories in the country, but this week one cloud backup service is finally sharing its story about surviving the drought that followed.
