The last deal of 2010: You name it!

My wallet is closed until 2011. But now's the chance to channel your inner cheapskate and share a good deal with your fellow readers. Happy New Year!


Note to self: Don't post one-day-only deals during vacation weeks. Apparently there was considerable confusion following Monday's Ad-Aware Pro freebie--which, as noted in the post, was available Monday only. My apologies to newsletter subscribers who thought the deal was for Tuesday or Wednesday.

Well, here we are at the end of another year. We saw some pretty amazing bargains in 2010, everything from $49 1TB hard drives to, ahem, a $220 software bundle for $19. (This is my last pitch for it, promise. The offer expires tomorrow, Dec. 31!)

I want to thank all of you for hanging around all year, and wish you a safe, happy, healthy new year. And cheap, of course.

Lest we forget, however, there's more to life than sweet deals. The older I get, the more I realize it's not the things I own that I treasure most, but rather the experiences I have and the people I care about. Everything else is just stuff.

That said, for the remainder of 2010, I'm handing the reins to you. What deals have you found today that you'd like to share with your fellow readers? Head to the comments and shout 'em out.

If you haven't found anything exciting (I didn't), why not mention your favorite deal from the year gone by? Or even your least favorite? (Believe me, I know that not everything I post is a winner.) What deals are you hoping to score in 2011? And what changes, if any, would you like to see from The Cheapskate?

Over and out, my friends. Thanks again, and I'll see you next year!

Microsoft leaves Apple in the dust with tablet and laptop innovation in 2015

Will there be one Apple Ring to rule them all? That's what a patent application says. Plus, building the thinnest gadget isn't innovation anymore and Apple just got a reality check from Microsoft.
