Amazon for students – Free Xbox 360 with a new PC

A while ago we announced a back to school promotion from Microsoft – buy a PC worth at least $699 and get a free XBOX 360 4GB edition. At that time, the offer was limited to Microsoft own stores and Best Buy. The good news is that Amazon decided to join the promotion and we know their prices compared with BestBuy, right? We also know that they don’t have taxes in most of the state so you’ll get more bang for your back.

You can read more about the promotion on Amazon’s website. The offer applies only to Amazon students but to join you just need an .edu e-mail, As an added bonus, you’ll also get Amazon Prime (two days shipping) for free.

The offer is available between May 25, 2011 and September 3, 2011 so you have plenty of time to take advantage of the free XBOX 360.

WatchESPN Live iPad version is here – quick review

Good news for sport lovers – WatchESPN app is now optimized for large screen, more specifically for iPad. the application is free and available right now in the app store. I downloaded in order to review it and fortunately it works with my cable provider, Times Warner.


The user interface is nice enough and polished, like most of the apps for iPad (it is good to know that good UI design practices are applied) and provides live viewing to all ESPN channels. The transition from portrait / landscape is also smooth and the layout works well.
