HotUKDeals Of The Day - Thursday 26th May

26 May 2011

hukd_logob1 Here it is – your daily dose of the finest bargains to be found aboard the HMS HotUKDeals, a fine old ship, steered through choppy waters by Captain Savesalot. Yes really, it’s an actual ship and that’s his actual name. You got a problem with that?

945460_1We’ll kick off with some science. Earlier on today we learned something about external hard drives. We learned that even though they do not seem to emit heat, if you place a chocolate digestive face down on top of one for ten minutes, the chocolate will begin to melt. No need to thank us.

You should bear that in mind before you invest in one of these, a Western Digital WD Elements Desktop 2TB USB 2.0 external hard drive. It’s only £49.90 plus p&p at the moment, and you can probably get a cheap packet of chocolate digestive biscuits for about 30p if you put your mind to it.

945827_1More science now. The Kinect – the add-on to the Xbox 360 that has caused a stir across the globe. And the fact that you can get one for only £79.00 with the additional bonus of a 3-month Xbox Live membership thrown in for nothing. Sweet.

The science? We’re bottling out of that because we’re not ashamed to admit that we haven’t got a clue how the Kinect works. Sorry about that.

You can get a FREE 30-day Lovefilm trial period and not only that, you’ll also be able to get your hands on a FREE £20 Amazon.co.uk gift certificate as well. So that’s TWO FREE THINGS. For the price of, erm, none.
