We’re Launching A Store! (And Giving Stuff Away)

Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 7.46.50 PM

Hey guys, I wanted to let you all know that we’ve partnered with StackSocial to give you guys an OhGizmo-branded store. That’s right, you can now not only find out about quirky and innovative gadgets on our front page daily, you can also jump straight to shopping for exclusive deals on trending gadgets, consumer tech, software, and e-learning every day. The store is right here!

We’re proud to partner up with Stack Social, who also work with some juggernauts like Gizmodo, The Verge, and Mashable. This way you guys know you’re in good hands and all your transactions are safe. And to get things started, we’re also having a giveaway! Read on for the deets on this entire venture.

Some of you may remember our Deal Of The Day column. While that’s over, I still feel like there was value there for many of you, and I’m hoping to set things up with a similar format. That means I’ll be writing about one deal daily, though I promise these will actually be exciting (unlike the previous ones). Have any of you seen their Mac Bundles?! You’re free to wait for the articles, or go and shop anytime! At the same time, I’m hoping to improve on the old format by asking for your feedback. I’ll regularly be quizzing you on what you want to see more of, what products interest you, and what I could we be doing to make this better for you.

Finally, as promised, there’s a giveaway. To get things started on the right foot, StackSocial and OhGizmo! are giving away a Doxie Go (a portable scanner), a SOUNDFREAQ Sound Step (a cool Bluetooth speaker dock), and an Ouya console (an open source gaming console). That’s a $400 value, and you can enter to win right here!. You’ll find all the details there, and it’s super easy to enter.

So that’s it, that’s the big news. Now’s as good a time as any to let the team know what you think. I’m going to try to be careful and not overwhelm you with too many deals, and we’ll try to fine tune the experience as we go, based on your feedback. But I do think this is going to add value to the site, and I feel like you guys will dig it. Let me know if I’m wrong!

Google’s Nexus 4 Gets a Hundred Dollar Price Cut

Google Nexus 4 If you’ve been thinking about getting a Nexus 4, then Google just made your decision easier. They’ve generously slashed $100 from the price of their flagship smartphone, bringing the price of the Nexus 4 down to $199 for the 8GB version and down to $249 for the 16GB version. Talk about a crazy deal!

Few smartphone companies make the moves that Google does, so when they do, you’ve got to pay attention so you don’t miss out. The Nexus 4 has specs that still hold up a year after its release, with its 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 resolution display, 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM.

Target Offers $200 Credit Towards iPhone 4 For Your Old 3GS

By Chris Scott Barr

The battle between Verizon and AT&T has heated up since the former managed to land the iPhone on their network. Both sides have their pros and cons, most of which boil down to which carrier has better coverage in your area. Well if you’re on the AT&T side of the fence, Target wants to help you out. How? By giving you some cash towards a shiny new iPhone 4.

Until this Saturday, February 12, you can get up to a $200 credit towards an iPhone 4 by trading in your old 3GS ($100 by trading in a 3G). Essentially, that means if you have a 3GS, you could land yourself the latest hardware for free. You’ll of course need to sign a new 2-year plan to get in on the deal.

Get A Blu-ray/VHS Combo Player On The Cheap

Blu-ray VHS combo

By Chris Scott Barr

If you haven’t hopped on the Blu-ray bandwagon, it’s becoming easier and easier. Heck, the last two Blu-ray movies I bought also came with a DVD copy as well. Blu-ray players themselves have long since broken the sub-$200 barrier, and now you can even get yourself one that plays your old-school VHS taps on the cheap.

Up for grabs over on Amazon Is a Panasonic DMP-BD70V which plays Blu-ray and VHS for $140. If you’ve got the cash and are thinking about upgrading to the new format, then this sounds like a solid buy. Barring the formats that died before they ever took off (Betamax, Laserdisc, HD-DVD) it’ll play pretty much any video you’ve purchased since the 70’s. There’s even an SD card slot, USB port and internet functionality to stream video from YouTube and Amazon VOD. The price was supposedly only good through yesterday, but it seems to be sticking around. I’d jump on this soon though.

Woot-Off Underway

Woot.com
normally sells one heavily discounted gadgety item every 24 hours, but during a Woot-Off, a new item appears as soon as the current item sells out (sometimes after mere seconds). Nobody knows what’s coming up next, but whatever it is, it’s dirt cheap (with flat rate $5 shipping). Among the items you’ve missed so far have been MyVue iPod video goggles for $70, Candi the USB pole dancer for $10, a 4 port USB hub with an integrated rechargeable battery pack for $4, and the world’s crappiest projector for $50. And all the obligatory random weird crap, of course.

Ritz Camera Force to Close Down 300 Locations

ritzcamera-sb

by Shane McGlaun

The economy is bad; you have to have been living in a cave or in a coma to not know about that. So poor is the global economy that retail chains once rolling in the profits have been forced entirely out of business. Circuit City was one of the most recent chains to close up shop.

Nationwide camera retailer Ritz Camera filed for bankruptcy recently and has now announced that it will be closing 300 of its locations around the country. Despite boarding up 300 stores around the country, the chain will still have about 400 locations in operation nationwide. That is assuming it doesn’t come back in a week and close the remainder like Circuit City.
