Zune Slashes Prices on Accessories

Throughout the month of July, the Zune Originals store, an offshoot of Zune.net, is offering many of its Zune accessories at 50% off, and quite a few more at smaller discounts. If you own a Zune, there is no better time to pick up those accessories you’ve been wanting.

Even if you don’t own a Zune, you may want to take this opportunity to pick up a set of the Zune headphones, which are absolutely worth every penny of the $19.99 they’re currently selling for on the Web site. Of course, the price of the 120 gig Zune has been dropped (permanently, I believe) to $249, which is what I paid for my 80 gig Zune a year and a half ago, so you may want to pick one of those up, too.

When looking for these accessories, you will probably want to visit the Zune Originals store, not the main Zune Web site, as the main Zune Web site still has all of the accessories listed at full price. However, even if you do visit the main Zune Web site, clicking the “Buy Now” button will open the Zune Store in a new window/tab with the item in your cart at the correct price.

Otterbox – Protect Your iPod or iPhone

I have had an iPhone for about two months, now. When I first got it, I was told that I should pick up the Otterbox Defender case to protect it. I ordered one and was immediately impressed. In fact, I was so impressed, that when we got iPod Touches for our kids’ birthday, the first (and only) accessory we ordered for them were Otterbox Defender cases. We also bought one for the 3rd generation iPod Nano that was handed down to my wife after the iPod Touches were received.
