Thinking about buying a sleek new digital camera for your honey?
The Source has a sale on the Nikon Coolpix L610. Regularly $199.99, you can pick up this point-and-shoot – in silver, black or red – for $159.99.
Despite its small size, the L610 boasts a 16-megapixel sensor, 14x optical zoom (huge for a compact camera) and the ability to shoot 1080p HD video with image stabilization.
If you’d rather not experiment with manual controls, this camera offers both an Easy Auto Mode, which makes all the key decisions for you, or you can opt for one of the many dozens of scene modes including Beach, Close Up, Dusk/Dawn, Easy Panorama, Fireworks Show, Food, Landscape, Museum, Night Landscape, Night Portrait, Party/Indoor, Pet Portrait, Portrait, Snow, Sports, Sunset and 3D Photography (compatible television required to see the stereoscopic effect).
The L610 has 28MB of internal storage to start you off, but it takes SD/SDHC/SDXC removable memory cards to store all your photos and videos. (The Source also has a sale on a 16GB Dane Elec brand card for under $20).
If you’re significant other would prefer an ebook reader, you can pick up a white Kobo Mini for $59.99 – instead of the usually $79.99 price – until Thursday, February 14. This Best Buy sale also includes a teal-coloured SnapBack Case for the back of the ebook reader.
Billed as the world’s smallest and lightest full-featured ebook reader, the Kobo Mini features a 5-inch glare-free touchscreen, weighs just 134 grams and loads pages quickly as you flick through digital books, magazines and newspapers.
Though it doesn’t have expandable memory, the 2-gigabytes of built-in storage is enough for about 1,000 ebooks — more than enough for most.
As with most other ebook readers, this Wi-Fi enabled ebook reader lets you tweak the font size and style, plus it includes an integrated dictionary and lasts up to a month on a single charge (with Wi-Fi turned off).
Not only is the Kobo Mini $20 off the regular price, this purse- and pocket-sized product is also $30 cheaper than the least-expensive Kindle.
Plus, unlike the Kindle line, Kobo ebook readers – including the Mini – allow you borrow books from your local library. Kobo bookstore’s contains 3 million titles, says the company – one-third of which are free to download and read.
This Kobo Mini sale is available online and in-store, but only until Valentine’s Day, says Best Buy.
OK, so the third item isn’t exactly a tech toy, but who could resist a sale on a Keurig Single Serve Coffee Maker (model # KUB31R) for $89.99 at Future Shop (usually $109.99)?
And, hey, it’s fittingly red, too, with chrome accents.
This single serve coffee maker is ideal for those who want something simple to use – you just buy the premeasured coffee K-Cups, with a number of coffee types and flavours to choose from – and press the button. The machine will do the rest. Read: no more spilling out the remainder of a pot you brewed.
After you pour cold water into the reservoir, simply pop in a K-Cup and choose from 6, 8 or 10-ounce sizes. Brew time is three minutes.
This compact coffee maker with removable drip tray is ideal for small kitchens, offices, dorms or campers.
And, if none of these seems to be quite the right expression of your love, you could always enter his/her name into the contest to name one of Pluto’s moons.
After all, what says “I love you” more than having a small, frigid lump of space rock take your name for the rest of human history?
