TechTeach, Issue Fifteen

I thought I’d pass on some great places to shop, sign up for their newsletters, and a few where you might win some cool computer / tech stuff.

CompUSA has pulled back a bit in California this year, but they have a really good site for technology items:


They also do contests and giveaways in conjunction with the Computer America radio show:


Tiger Direct and Newegg have been selling products via mail order for a long time. Tiger Direct has been around for at least 14 years, and Newegg for almost ten.



I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about Computer America before, but it’s well worth mentioning again since I join their chat every weeknight from 7-9PM. Craig Crossman has been on the air for 16 years now. They also have an excellent newsletter that’s worth getting, and you can enter giveaways here too:


Dave Graveline has been doing his show, Into Tomorrow, for nearly as long and is just as good. IT is streamed around the clock on his site for free, and you can use the links on the site, or use Winamp. He also does giveaways.


Currently, HP is doing a $6000 dollar computer giveaway with some major computing and tech blogs. Each of 50 blogs is giving away one of these packages, and they are each doing it differently.


Chris Pirillo has been doing a tech show for years, first on TechTV and now via Ustream. He also does lots of extra value services for the community, like finding the latest coupons for a variety of products:

Thirteen years on the air, and still going, Kim Komando does a computer show Saturday mornings at 7AM to 10AM on 1240AM (http://1240ksma.com/ ), and she is in the middle of her 13th anniversary giveaway. Though signing up for the giveaway here gets you her newsletters, you can always unsubscribe from them later.
