Description: (click show to see it)
Soet's just focus on the virtues, OK? And ignore the many disturbing rumors swirling in a maelstrom around the sales of this Hitachi 30GB Blu-Ray HDD/DVD Camcorder. First, this is a solid price. And that's good news for our customers. We'd call it an "attractive" price. Some have called it a "suspicious" price. But what is there to be suspicious about? Just because our CEO rubbed his hands together and laughed maniacally at the staff meeting where we put this sale on the calendar? "MWHA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA" is just how he laughs. He's a really jovial guy.
Another nice thing about this Hitachi 30GB Blu-Ray HDD/DVD Camcorder is that it's super simple to use. There's a 1-Second Quick Start from Standby mode that means it's easy to catch a shot. There's a CMOS image sensor that records video at 1920×1080/60Hz and still pictures at 2400×1800. It's compatible with five types of industry standard discs and has a 30 gig hard drive built in. It's easy. Almost... too easy. So you'll be filming in no time! Yep, that'll be you, just recording shots of your friends from college, talking to each other about the intimate details of your lives, not once worrying that anyone else could ever see that High Def footage of you lounging around, flipping your hair, and chewing your pen cap the way you do so adorably.
Won't that be fun? Let's make sure we keep our focus on the fun you're going to have, and off the crazy conspiracy theories that this is all a nefarious scheme to allow certain higher-ups at Woot to watch and listen as the deliciously private details of your life via the Hitachi 30GB Blu-Ray HDD/DVD Camcorder.
And let's agree to just dismiss the speculation that we at Woot have loaded each of these webcams with undetectable software allowing us to watch a transmitted feed from every single unit we sell. Honestly, it's ridiculous. I mean, sure, if you're going to ask "Do we have a secret viewing room under our warehouse, accessible only by senior staff, and outfitted with dozens of monitors?" then the answer has to be yeah. But a lot of companies have that. There's nothing sinister about that room. That's just where we have Donut Thursdays. And practice using the One Touch Dubbing Feature to transcode saved videos to standard DVD copies.
Just remember, you don't need to pay any of that any mind. All you need to do is drop a few bucks and start Hitachi 30GB Blu-Ray HDD/DVD Camcordering it up. And rest assured, your quality home movies will stay as private as you like. Oh, and try to wear that yellow shirt that looks so good on you. That would be excellent if you wore that.

Yes, while Wil Wheaton was appearing in the likes of Stand By Me and Star Trek: The Next Generation, he was also leading a double life as a bonafide die-throwing, joystick-slinging geek. All the untouchable girls in your middle-school class who had crushes on him never suspected that, behind the dreamy exterior, he was one of us all along. If they only knew...
Now, not everybody can embark on a Greyhawk campaign with Wil, or touch 8-bit gloves with him for a round of Mortal Kombat. But this shirt is the mark of your affinity, the badge of the allegiances you share, the proof that even geeks can be stars - and even stars can be geeks.
So please don't make us take sides. We're not among those wine chauvinists who turn up their tastebuds at anything from outside their borders. We go where our palate takes us. We obey no law but the law of the grape.
(And, of course, the laws regulating interstate wine shipping.)
We're happy to see that Castello Di Gabbiano Chief Winemaker Giancarlo Roman of Tuscany and Beringer Vineyards Winemaster Emeritus Ed Sbargia of Napa Valley feel the same way. They're the alleanza referred to in the name of this wine, two great wine minds bringing the styles of two continents to bear on grapes grown on the Castello Di Gabbiano estate in Tuscany. It's the most powerful trans-Atlantic alliance since NATO, and you can't drink a mutual defense pact.
But boy, can you ever drink the Castello Di Gabbiano 2005 Alleanza Toscana. From a blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Sangiovese, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon springs forth a deep crimson wine exuding sweet berry, black pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla aromas. Those notes carry over on the palate, with hints of nutmeg, tobacco, anise, and cocoa, and a round, supple, deep mouthfeel. Not hard to see why it scored a novanta from Wine Spectator.
See, the 2005 Alleanza is the kind of multiculturalism the world needs more of: multi-viti-culturalism. We can't think of a better wine to be the first Italian wine featured on Wine.Woot. One guess what we're going to pour to celebrate the occasion.
