So keep reading and look for some of the best deals this week. And as always, if you find another that I may have missed, please let us know and include it in the comments.… Read more
Is it just me or did the time fly? Just one week ago, I was telling you about great Sunday deals from your local ads, and now I've got a whole net set of them. This week looks like another big one with deals on everything from computers to software.

We'll get out our stopwatches to see how long it takes for them to show up on eBay.
The old way is to shove a pallet of beans and bullets tied to a few parachutes out the back of a C-130 Hercules and hope it lands in one piece. The new way is to release the CQ-10A SnowGoose from 18,000 feet and allow the 110-horsepower Rotax 914-driven prop and laptop-programmable navigation system to land the payload within 50 meters of a customer up to 500 miles away.
Manufactured by Canadian company Mist Mobility Integrated Systems Technology, the SnowGoose represents the latest in a class of guided parafoil systems that are blurring the line between unmanned aerial vehicles (… Read more
Now you too can be as cool as Jack Bauer (though you'll have to lose the Lightsaber first, sorry). The "MTM BlackHawk" that co-stars with him on 24 is available for civilian purchase from U.K.-based Special Ops Watches. So what do you get for $645?

This keyboard may not be the prettiest on the block, but that's hardly the point. The M779 (sounds like an automatic weapon, appropriately) is designed to "withstand vibration, shock, severe jolts and spilled liquids," according to Gizmowatch. It also has a touchpad and LED lighting so you can save the batteries on your night-vision goggles. And to complete your undercover mission, we suggest a titanium USB drive … Read more
If you happen to be visiting Japan this spring, you may see some unusually long lines outside stores on April 26. That's when Nintendo is planning to debut a DS Lite special edition to coincide with the release of the anticipated Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, according to Plastic Bamboo. The special DS will initially be sold as a limited-edition bundle with the role-playing game, but it's unclear whether the laser-etched device will be available on its own later on. Either way, you can expect to see the usual sequence of events: the rush of fanboys, Flickr photos … Read more
