And it’s also being made available to preorder at select retail partners including Microsoft Stores, GameStop and Micro Center with those orders expected to arrive beginning sometime this week.

HTC originally launched preorders in February and started shipping in April, but until this week orders have been backed up and the company has been experiencing shipping delays and complaints from preorder customers.

Update (2/17 12:20pm): Still good… go go go!

Quirky, the company that helps investors bring their ideas alive, is slashing tons of its smaller items in celebration of President’s Day. Many items are discounted at least 50%, with some garnering even larger drops. Apply coupon code MOREQUIRKY during checkout to save an additional 25%.

All orders of $50 or more ship free, otherwise shipping costs vary. The additional 25% discount should help offset shipping costs.

For example, Metal Cordies are on sale for just $5, which is a 50% drop. I have the older rubber version and absolutely love how great it is at making sure none of my computer cables fall behind my desk. The updated metal style perfectly complements the anodized aluminum of most Apple products.

Apple today started offering a couple new models of its latest generation iMac through its refurbished online store. Previously Apple was offering refurbished units of the new 21.5-inch iMac only, but we hadn’t seen any 27-inch models hit yet, which we assumed was likely due to yield issues and significant delays experienced in the iMac’s first few months of launch. Today Apple has finally started offering both the entry level 27-inch iMac and the higher end iMac, in addition to a couple of BTO models. However, taking tax into account, you might be about to score a new one for around the same price… expand full story
