The latest LEGO Mindstorms set is totally mind-blowing. This amazing robotics set includes over 500 Technic elements, a programmable brick a remote control, 3 motors, 3 sensors and downloadable 3D building instructions. The sensors include a touch sensor, colour sensor, and infrared sensor. You can also use an app that allows you to control your robot with your smartphone (iPhone and Android). Each model comes with various missions to complete, from the build itself to programming commands. Only $450 today only (RRP$599). Hurry, sale ends at midnight tonight!

I see IQToys also have it, for $479, everyone else for much more.

Warehouse selling 32gb iPod Touch gen 5 for $329 today, with $50 itunes card thrown in.  Puts the price of a ipod touch at $279!!! Amazing considering they are an apple product and several weeks back they were going for $450. 

Or, snag a refurbished 32gb g5 ipod touch from the apple website for $279  -- -we bought the refurbished one to see how it is, and they come in a brand new shell & battery and for all intensive purposes seem exactly like a brand new unit.

I know this is a bit of a dick move but it's "for all intents and purposes"

HN actually had the 16GB one for $180ish a few months ago, brand new. Good for trying  out ios apps if you don't want an iphone.

Apple have also dropped the price of their ipods recently and brought out a new 16gb version. But it looks like the ipod maybe a dying device, because the new one still has the A5 chip, which is an iphone 4s / ipad 2 era  chip, which is 3 or so years old? So wonder if the a new ipod will be released in september. Apparently the iphone 5s is made to replace it, but the ipod touch is better made IMHO , rather than the cheap plastic look of the iphone 5s.

Yeah but you definitely want a new battery if you are using it for intensive purposes.

DSE had 50% off Skinny topups with the purchase of a SIM. $50 topup for $29. This was last week so it should still be available

Not worth having if it's not a Classic with 160GB.

Mine is still going as good as new after 3+ years and only 40GB space left.

But it's the only Apple product I own (and will ever own)

The Warehouse have an 800w inverter generator on clearance for $300 - http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catalog/product/Inverter-Generator-800W?SKU=1697039 .

I bought one of these a year ago and fire it up every 2 months for half an hour to blow out the cobwebs.  Easy to start every time.  Very quiet.  Not the gruntiest but will easily keep the fridge cold in an outage and run a computer with its high quality output.

I paid $400 for mine on an 'introductory special' that said they would normally be $800.
