...refurbed... old... unwanted... what in the world would ever convince a person to woot this 512MB mp3 player with fm tuner and voice recorder capabilities... you're askin' me?... like i know... ha... if i had the answer, i'd be writing something completely different from what i'm typing now... you know?... it's like asking a blind dog in a room full of purple lunch boxes to find the fire hydrant and pee on it... you know what i'm sayin... anyways... shopzilla and shopping.com have good listings... bizrate has a listing with no stores... msn, yahoo, and froogle have listings, but those sites don't oranize their junk well enough to keep my attention... and the other ones have similars... solid ratings on amazon... enjoy.

its in the "about me" thing on the side nav... long story short... i can't impulse buy... tried a million times... just can't do it... that doesn't lessen my love for woot and what it does though... not in the slightest.

I'm the same way. Been on woot for months. Never bought a thing. Its just fun to shop. Buying is less exciting to me. It's all about the "thrill of the hunt", as they say.

You BLEW it! I wanted an update for the First Alert woot! I'll never come back here. I'm going to spread the word on the woot! forums too.

The comment above this one is lame. We all know its the same ONE guy posting these anonymous comments, trying to hate. If you don't like it, don't view the blog. Quit being a hater. I can assure you that hating on something never does anything to deter others from doing that which you hate. NO ONE listens to haters. Everyone knows that haters are just bitter losers. So help yourself and knock it off. P.S. i know i'm being a "hater" right now, but hating on haters. But that's different, obviously.
