    Looks like there's another Woot-Off. Which honestly, isn't that exciting anymore, but hey, I'm actually in the market for a new vacuum cleaner this time! :rolleyes:

    FYI, and all that.

    You forgot to mention "refurbished" on the laptop and desktop.

    Though on this one... as I said, I'm actually in the market for a vacuum. The wine deals I've seen have been pretty decent, at least.

    The only thing that has me checking Woot is a deal on a Zune HD. Need to snag a couple before they go extinct for my Zune Pass.

    Wow. From the post on the latest item, on woot itself:

    So... even they're acknowledging they suck these days, most of the time?

    Also, the one time I want a damned vacuum and there hasn't been one yet! WTF?

    What, you mean cheap speaker mounts doesn't get you all excited? Not even if accompanied by a post about the guy humping his friends speakers?

    Haven't seen the brown Zune on Woot for the last few years. Good luck!

    That's because they are EOL. Microsoft stop making them a long time ago and must of them got swiped up by Club Live hackers who snagged like 20+ Zunes a week.

    Wow. The one time I'm waiting for the vacuums during a woot-off? They have one stinking roomba in the middle of the night.

    They've seriously managed to be disappointing in how they're being disappointing. Recursive disappointment!
