Amazon's Friday Sale—Because Thursdays are for suckers.

Amazon’s Friday Sale—Because Thursdays are for suckers.

Uhmagud including an electronic Swede-Atsu Massage Lounger! We’re pretty sure we can expense this.

• Lowes is discounting the Black & Decket and Strait-Line Laser Levels by $50. Slickdeals has a listing of all the prices. With an additional $10 mail-in rebate on the Strait-Lines, you can actually make money. And remember kids, staring into lasers reveals a secret message!

• If you’re hankering for the newest Palm Treo 700w from Verizon—the one that runs Windows Mobile, not Palm OS—then it looks like the rebates for new service are finally starting, with a $300 phone selling with a $200 rebate for new activation. That brings you down to $99 for just the phone, although plan rates will vary.

• Speaking of Palm PDAs, the factory outlet is selling the already-discounted refurbished items for an additional 10% off the already discounted price. TechBargains]

• Circuit City has a clearance sale in their outlet.

• Today’s Woot! is a Vivitar Vivicam 8.1MP digital camera for $255 shipped. From other stores the camera goes for closer to $300, so that’s really not a bad deal.
