Four-deal Friday: iPods, Kinects, and pirates, oh my!

One of my favorite deals of the bunch: Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (PC version) for just $9.95--but only for a limited time!

After the alliterative disaster that was five-deal Wednesday, I couldn't let Friday go without correcting that disturbance in the Force. Plus, a lot of really good deals appeared on my radar today.

Many of them are today-only and/or limited-time, but all of them are still available and in stock as I write this. In no particular order:

1. Newegg has the 32GB iPod Touch (4th gen) for $269.99 shipped when you apply coupon code EMCKAHG29 at checkout. To clarify, this is the latest model, the one with the retina display and built-in cameras. And it's new, not refurbished.

2. Sorry about yesterday's short-lived Duke Nukem Forever deal. Here's a way better way to spend your $10: Direct2Drive has Lego Pirates of the Caribbean (PC) for $9.95. Everywhere else, it sells for $29.95. These Lego games are cute, clever, and often hilarious--great for kids and adults alike.

3. Speaking of games and fun for the whole family, today only, MidnightBox has the refurbished Kinect Sensor for Xbox 360 for $79.95, plus $3.99 for shipping. That's the lowest price I've seen for this kit, which includes Kinect Adventures. Big fan.

4. Looking for a nice big monitor that can double as a TV? Or vice-versa? Circuit City has the Hannspree ST289MUB 28-inch LCD HDTV for $229.99 when you apply coupon code ENI44680. (Alas, shipping adds $15.52.) This is a 1080p TV with two HDMI ports, a 5ms response time, and very positive user ratings overall.

Okay, that's it! Who's in for what?

Have a great weekend, and I'll see you back here on Monday.
