Blue's original Yeti microphone is one of my favorite podcasting mics, and MacMall has it on a killer deal this week for just $79.99. This microphone connects to your Mac or PC via USB, has on-mic adjustable gain control, passthrough (and zero-latency monitoring) headphone jack with separate volume, and a mute switch. Additionally, this mic has multiple elements, and you can configure it in stereo (interview) mode, cardiod mode (for single-person podcasts), or omni-directional mode to pick up a whole room's worth of people. Check it out, it won't stay at this price for long.
Yesterday I was looking to book flights for a summer trip to Lake Tahoe (to see Phish, naturally). On nearly every airline I tried, looking to depart from either Manchester (MHT) or Boston (BOS) and heading to the Reno/Tahoe airport (RNO), the cost was about $800 per ticket. At the advice of some Twitter followers, I checked flights in and out of Sacramento (SMF) and on most airlines these were about the same, except Southwest where going from MHT to SMF saved me over $300 per ticket, making the cost of two tickets less than $1000. Still not as cheap as it would have been 2 years ago, but much better today!

My wife and I want some protection in our home, but with a house full of kids and their friends, we wanted something safer than a firearm.
Our sister site, The Mac Observer, today posted about a cool docking station they found: the Apricorn Aegis Netdock. This features a built-in DVD burner, USB hub, and even has a bay for a hard drive. There are options to buy it with or without a drive installed, and today Amazon is showing them for $46.32 ($39.99 + $6.33 shipping through J&R). That's a good deal for a great external dock. Apple's stand-alone USB SuperDrive is nearly double that at US$79.
If you are headed to the Consumer Electronics Show next week in Las Vegas, but you've failed to book a flight yet, you're in luck. Spirit Airlines has flights from $50 each way. We just booked several flights from the SF Bay Area for $106, roundtrip. it's the lowest price we could find on these flights. Final pricing will depend on your location, but a quick perusal of nationwide flights showed that there are deals to be had from just about all locations Spirit services.
