  1. The Little System That Could: OUYA Now Available in Stores

    It's a gaming console that costs less than $100. Heck. Buy two.

    If you weren't one of the 63,416 people who contributed to the OUYA console's mega-successful $8.6 million dollar Kickstarter campaign then you've had to wait for the little system that could to finally hit store shelves. Today is that day, frugal gamers! The OUYA is now available at Target, GameStop, and Best Buy if you absolutely must rush out to buy it now. If you can't find it in stores, or if you don't mind waiting for it to ship you can also order it on Amazon.

  2. Target Creates A Supermom In Their New Justice League Animated Commercial

    Almost Totally Excellent

    I must admit, I was very excited to hear Target was going to sell "Justice League" products. Not so much when I arrived in-store to find sippy cups and Wonder Woman donning pink and purple. But they put together a fun animated commercial featuring a mom who joins the League, and that's pretty cool.

  3. Target Will Now Price Match Amazon, Among Other Retailers, All Year

    Standard retailers have been feeling the pinch of online retail for a long time now. The ways in which they deal with their online competitors vary, but whatever it is online retail has going for it, it's not far from traditional retail's thoughts. That's why it's become such a common event for places like Target to match the prices found at their online rivals during the holidays. For Target, however, the holidays are about to be extended. The company will now match the prices of Amazon each and every single day of the year.

  4. Things We Saw Today: Kraft’s Pride Oreo

    Things We Saw Today

    Kraft celebrated Pride Day yesterday by posting this rainbow Oreo on its Facebook page. While the response was mostly positive -- nearly 170,000 "likes" at the time of this writing -- guess what? Some people didn't like it because of the gay. And now they're going to boycott cookies. Well, I guess they'll go eat worms. More cookies for us! Good job, Kraft! (via Business Insider)

  5. Latest Salvo in eBook Battles: Forget About Buying a Kindle at Target

    Not all that glitters is gold

    When the Department of Justice announcing an investigation and subsequent suit against Apple and five other eBook publishers for price fixing, Amazon, the 1k pound gorilla of the eBook market and the biggest eBook publisher not named in the suit, immediately lowered its eBook pricing, by as much as a third in some cases. See, the way it works is, Amazon is using the market dominance of its Kindle (60% of the eReader market) to set prices lower than many publishers consider profitable, in an effort to collect even more of the market. Apple, alternatively, takes 30% of any eBook sales on iBooks, and requires any publisher they work with to never sell an eBook for less than the price they sell for iBooks. Are both attempts to create prices based on something other than immediate, per-book profitability? Yes. Are both of them at odds with each other and bad for physical book sellers? Yup. Today, however, saw one of the weirder ways this fight is playing out, namely in the removal of all Amazon brand hardware from their stores.

  6. Everyday Object Avengers Collages Good Enough to Eat, Drink, Throw, Wear, Toast Bread In

    Excelsior!

    Okay, yes, these Avengers object collages were put together as a promotional thing for Target, not some independent fan, but look at it this way: it's one more example of Target proving that you can make cooler stuff out of unrelated objects than their licensed merchandise.

  7. Real Life Tiny Avengers Commercial is Pretty Adorable

    Excelsior!

    I admit it, I search Avengers ads for Black Widow footage. But if there's a character who has just as much trouble getting any screen time in them as she does, it's Hawkeye. What is up with the neglected S.H.I.E.L.D employees? Ladies and gentlemen, we are creating a society that diminishes the efforts of brave civil servants everywhere. And we must start rectifying that in ads for Target, who aside from having many serious problems, also really wants you to forget about adorable homemade costumes and buy their merch instead.

  8. Target Recalls World’s Most Poorly Designed Plush Frog Mask

    What kids doesn't want to pretend he's a frog? Probably plenty, but you can bet that there are plenty out there who do. Enough that Target is -- or at least was -- selling a plush frog mask to help these imaginative little children live out their fantasy. The problem? Turns out these plush masks have eye holes, but no nose holes or mouth holes making them more like plush suffocation masks than anything else. They're now being recalled.

  9. Target Inadvisably Mocks Home-Made Halloween Costumes

    Target's name is something of a self-fulfilling prophecy these days. Just to make sure that everyone has beef with them, the retailer has levied a snide, mocking blow at, of all people, moms who take the time to make charming homemade costumes for their kids instead of buying a cheap licensed knock off at some big box store.

  10. Best Buy and Target Begin Used Game Trade-Ins

    Not long after THQ announced its war on used game buyers, both Best Buy and Target announced they'll be starting their own used game trade-in programs. Both programs are similar in scope, but differ in details.
