Husbands, boyfriends, and sons, lend me your ears! Sony’s got a couple of promos for Mother’s Day:

  • A Sony Cybershot S980BDL/P + a Pink and Black Camera Case for $150 - The CyberShot is a 12.1 Megapixel camera, features a washed metal finish, and of course, comes in pink. A 2GB Memory Stick Duo is part of the package.
  • Select VAIO CS notebooks + Dooney & Bourke tote bag = $150 in savings - Or basically, you get the bag (which costs $150) for free. This promo is somewhat limited though, since it only applies to “pre-built” CS notebooks. At least you’re not limited to pink, as you can choose from the CS’ five different colors. Here are supported models: VGN-CS290JEC, VGN-CS290JEQ, VGN-CS290JER, VGN-CS290JEP, VGN-CS290JEW.

Any gadget-related mother’s day promos out there you’d like to share? Leave a comment please. Thanks to Popgadget for the tip.

Sony to Recall Over Half-a-Million VAIOs

Looks like Sony’s got a big problem on their hands, but at least their doing something about it. Some VAIO laptops in the VGN-TZ may be suffering from wiring problems that lead to overheating. This has led to at least 15 reported complaints, and at least one case of a user getting burnt. On top of that, it’s probable that Sony isn’t pleased how Apple once again steals the limelight, with Yahoo Tech explaining that “The TZ is the super-miniature laptop to which Steve Jobs famously compared the MacBook Air”. Way to be sensitive Yahoo!

The recall announcement is pretty straightforward, requesting that VGN-TZ owners have their units inspected (and repaired if needed) as soon as possible. They promise to pay for everything of course, and even to go wherever you are when practical. For more details visit Sony’s eSupport page. (
