If you've ever had to transfer your iTunes library to a new computer, you know it can be quite a painful process. These days, Apple has made it easier than ever before to transfer your music library from one computer to another, but some years ago, it was not easy. I tried to move my entire iTunes library to my new computer via the external hard drive and failed miserably. After some consolidating of files, clicking through the hidden folders, importing/exporting the xml file, a good portion of my music library turned into gibberish. See below and you … Read more
I like Groupon. Oh, who am I kidding, I love Groupon. LivingSocial, too. And even DealChicken, despite it having the name DealChicken.
I've used these services to score some pretty fantastic deals on restaurants, vacations, fun family outings, and the like.
Recently, Groupon, Google Offers, and LivingSocial (among others) have started offering goods along with services, some of which are tech items.
Ah, but are those goods good deals? Given the often-substantial savings you get on three-course Italian dinners and gallery-wrapped photos canvases, you might just blindly assume that Groupon's tech discounts are equally substantial. (Call it the … Read more

LivingSocial said today it has branched into merchandise, a move that comes as the online daily-deal company tries to keep pace with sector leader Groupon.
Up to now, most of LivingSocial's bargains have been connected to restaurant meals, weekend trips and spa services. From now on, customers can visit the site to buy discounted merchandise. This is the company's first attempt at selling physical products.
The company, based in Washington D.C., is kicking off the offering with a day at the beach theme, offering such goods as tent gazebos, beach toys and towels.
Groupon already sells merchandise, … Read more

E-commerce just dropped the letter "e," with Groupon setting up its first retail store in the heart of Singapore.
The store is an avenue for shoppers to redeem their purchased goods instantly, Groupon Singapore CEO Karl Chong told CNET Asia during the official launch. It's also a way for the company to get to know its customers.
The shop has three computer terminals, as well as a handful of Apple iPads, where customers can browse, buy, and print deals on the spot. However, only physical goods can be redeemed at the store in the Suntec City Mall. … Read more
Yahoo is teaming up with radio giant Clear Channel on a distribution and cross-promotional deal, expanding on its strategy of striking content-sharing deals with traditional media brands.
The companies announced a partnership late Wednesday in which Yahoo will use Clear Channel's iHeartRadio platform as its official digital radio service. As part of the multi-year deal, Yahoo will carry nearly a dozen live Clear Channel events annually, as well as live video from this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
iHeartRadio boasts a monthly audience of about 45 million unique listeners and 80 million downloads of its mobile … Read more
As some of you may recall, about two months back we partnered with our good friends at Outdoor Technology to bring the CNET audience an awesome deal on Bluetooth headphones.

This week, Outdoor Technology is back with an even better deal on its top-selling DJ Slims wireless headphones! Grab a pair of the awesome DJ Slims for less than $45 with free shipping.
It's time for all of you to jump on the Bluetooth … Read more
Google Offers, at its core, is not really much different from any deal site (Groupon, Living Social). Users sign up for daily email offers from local businesses willing to give potential customers heavy discounts to become patrons of their establishments.
The only real difference, until recently, was that Google did not have a native iOS app for users to easily browse, organize, and use their purchased deals.
Excusing the ugly app icon that gets completely sucked into the iPhone's display, the Google Offers app is actually quite nice. Once you sign in to your Google Offers account (or start … Read more
With the Groupon app for Android, you can not only sift through local daily deals, but you can also manage your profile, keep track of Groupons you've already purchased, and sift through rewards from some of your favorite retailers.
If you've used Groupon.com at all, the Android app should feel familiar. The look is the same, the deal categories are all there, and purchasing Groupons is just as simple. The difference, of course, is in the swiping and the ease with which you can zip around.
The app starts you off with a list of featured deals … Read more
