They didn't sell out of PEs before, and didn't put any in the Woot-off right after that, but today they might.

Insider wishing?

I got mine from Woot. I still consider it a great deal. Many here have posted about prices and availability, so I thought I'd alert those who would wish to monitor that site to see if it sold off the last they had.

So far, they haven't put any PEs up. I wonder if they made a deal with SquareTrade for the rest, to provide warranty units?

STUPID VACUUMS! I'm afraid to get Taco Bell just in case they put them up.

Sigh, I ordered from Meijer last Monday and so far no shipping info provided. Should I cancel the order? The reseller rating of Meijer does not look very promising... Anyone has experience with it?

I ordered then too and finally got shipping notice on the 12th. So I'd give a couple more days, they might just be slow to ship.

Someone I know ordered from Meijer (not sure which day exactly) and has already received their unit, which appeared to be new and tested out as fully functional, so that's encouraging. Good luck!

How does it work? I voted for BOC and don't even know what it is. :)

:) Considering how Entourage made out, apparently it was a REALLY SECURE secret!

I don't think we're going to see any from Woot today. I think they got channeled out to cover warranties. Now that Amazon owns Woot, they are no doubt free to move things in and out according to their own strategies.

This woot-off is HORRIBLE, there were some things I would have wanted but they were gone once I woke up...

Bag of Crap Description (sounds very promising):

Unless, of course, they’re wasting it on pointless garbage like this. The price of our humble Bag O’ Crap barely amounts to what you can scrape off of the inside of an empty pot of gold. But for sheer pointlessness, it’s up there with an ermine-lined swimming pool, or matching solid-gold Segways for everybody in your entourage.

Did anybody get one??? I failed.

you should be able to find it with a search for woot in the amazon app store...

Another Woot-off comes and goes, and no Pocket Edges again. I think Amazon must have squirreled them out the back door.

well some users had reported that when they got theirs it wasn't "new", so they probably used the last of their stock to replace those...

That's true. And since Entourage is now gone, Woot may not want to sell a product like that online. It's unlikely that replacements of bad units and what they didn't sell came out exactly even.

That was fun, though. They should have T-Shirts "I Survived My First WOOT OFF!" :)

They might show up on moofi.

(If you're an engineer, rotate each letter 180° around an axis parallel to the x axis but offset in the positive-y direction by half the height of each individual letter.)

(Otherwise, just flip each letter vertically.)

Moofi is a semi-mystical place. Moofi items for sale each have their own, secret internet addresses, but moofi itself does not.

For example, http://moofi.woot.com/moofi/spidermobile was just posted today. No way would you guess that address based on what the item is. Nor its other address, http://deals.woot.com/deals/go/a07df427-2292-4639-b814-183c39ae4e92.

But all is revealed to those who every day or so (depending on how eagerly you're watching for a particular item) go here: http://deals.woot.com/deals/search?q=moofi&sort=mostrecent.

This takes you to deals.woot (http://deals.woot.com), searches on the term moofi, and puts the results in order by the most recent. Now, deals.woot (http://deals.woot.com) is a place where the wooting public (and sellers who want to reach the wooting public) post their ideas of great deals.

BUT !!! Woot staff slips woot items in there too, and moofi shows up in their descriptions. Why? Left field (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zA4LcsyczA8)!

Moofi ... woot!

The Amazon store says WootWatcher is FREE, but they SELL it. (BOGUS)
Even the "FREE App of the Day" says: "To purchase xxxx please add a payment method in your 1-click settings"
SlideMe is not working for me today, and AndAppStore is cranky!
I found it here: http://handheld.softpedia.com/progDownload/WootWatcher-Download-96947.html

I noticed Tiger Direct has the PE for $180. Not quite as good as the recent Woot or Meijier deal but still not bad. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6940002
