Did everyone stuff themselves silly with turkey yesterday? Well get ready to stuff some stockings and do some shopping because there are a ton of deals out there. First off, we’re giving everyone 20% off software at the store, that includes Shadow (Windows Mobile Smartphone) and G1 software. If you’re thinking you should get your special phone something special head over to the AllShadow Store and check out the hardware too. Use the coupon code BLACK.
Also worth a look is Amazon’s Huge Black Friday sale with large discounts on almost everything. For example the Plantronics Discovery 925 headset that’s normaly about $150 is now $49.99. Check this out and more at Amazon.
Tivo lovers rejoice! Now you can set your Tivo at home to record a show (or get a Season Pass) all from the comfort of your phone! Previously in order to get your Tivo to record something when away from home you had to login to the full site of tivo.com or your Yahoo account. Now you can simply go to m.tivo.com on your T-Mobile Smartphone and press Record this episode. You can search for shows, view upcoming episodes, get recommendations and more. Enjoy!

While playing with Amazon’s Unbox service this weekend I noticed something strange. When viewing the Unbox video library through a browser, selecting a video and going to the Download options that my G1 android is listed. I do have it signed up on Amazon MP3 and that works great so that explains how they have the G1’s information. Amazon has my G1 listed as a Video download destination along with a laptop and Tivo of mine. Selecting it gives an error right now which makes sense because there is no Unbox client available in the Market yet. However could this be the next coolest thing with OTA entertainment? I fired off an email to Amazon inquiring further but haven’t received any response back yet.
Amazon Unbox is a service which allows for watching online video of movies and tv shows on demand. The quality is great and the service nearly flawless. If they bring this to the Android platform how many of you will take advantage of this?
Custom backgrounds, cases, bling chains, and glue on sparkles might not be enough for some of us. Sometimes we have the need to take it to the next level. Well T-Mobile feels your pain, T-Mobile wants you to tag up your phone beyond all recognition and claim it as your own. You can create custom skins online and have them in your mailbox within a few days. You can whip one up in less than a few minutes for everything from your G1 and Shadow to a Laptop or your Tivo (of all things). You can overlap images with icons (like the skull teeth on the urban camo) or upload your own images (like the suave looking character on the right). Most are around $14.95 and are available from TMobileskins.com.
Tremendo Slap started a thread in the forums that talks about the Zagg InvisibleShield for the G1 that costs $24.95. For those that don’t know, InvisibleShield is a very thin film that you apply to the front and back of your device to help protect it.
But what if you apply it wrong? Here’s the good news, brought to us by SHADOWNU-B:
I had a chat with one of the zagg reps, and they have a 1 time courtesy replacement for any installation that goes wrong. all you do is pay for shipping $3.95. you send your old one back and your warranty (lifetime stays active) this is a one time deal only so use it wisely . all you have to do is go on the live chat with them and tell them you didn’t do the installation right and they will guide you though doing it right. if all else fails they offer the free replacement.
This is good news for anyone considering the InvisibleShield. Thanks for the news tip, ShadowMike.
