128GB Sandisk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Type A for $17 [limit 4]

If you need USB 3.1 Type A flash storage of the compact kind and don’t want to wait for the next big Sandisk sale, at the moment, Amazon itself is offering the new condition 128GB Sandisk Ultra Fit flash drive, model SDCZ430-128G-G46, for $17 with up to four per customer at the sale price. Free shipping for Prime members or with a $25+ order (eg two of these).

I had one of these (not sure if it is this exact model) that I was using as storage for one of those small OTA Antenna budget-chinese DVR boxes and it worked without missing a beat. Problem was that the budget DVR recorded things at MPEG2, so you’d use about 4GB per hour (depending on how it was transmitted, 1080i? 720? etc?)…

PS: “Fit” is the name Sandisk uses to describes the small USB flash drives. It is a bit longer but decidedly thicker than a microSD memory card. You can even forget you have them in your laptop’s or desktop’s USB port.

1-Year Prepaid CreativeLIVE Creator PASS for $199 after coupon

The coupon promotion is back. This time around coupon code 100VIPGIFT drops $100 off the $299 standard price of the Creative LIVE Season Pass, making it a prepaid $199 purchase for the first 12 months of your subscription.

With this, you can watch almost all the classes (present and future) Netflix-style, but once the subscription is over, you do not own any of them [unless you had previously purchased them digitally]. There are however some exceptions due to prior agreements with a few content creators: the excluded classes are listed at the Exclusions page

Having said that, if you have a more flexible schedule, there are LOTS of classes you can watch for FREE when you follow the free limited-time showings at the ON-AIR Schedule page. This is also when brand new classes premiere as they are live-recorded at their studios in Seattle. Being in pacific time, expect classes to start at noon if you are in the Big East [now with UConn once again???] / Eastern time zone…
