This week's Kibbles & Bytes newsletter from Small Dog's Don Mayer, chief canine handler at the popular online reseller, brings news that they will be running a Midnight Madness sale on August 23 from 10pm until 12am (EST) in celebration of Jaguar's release on the 24th.
New special deals* will be posted every 17 minutes on a whiteboard that's broadcast to the world via Small Dog's 'dog cam'. Each of these deals will be accessible for 17 minutes via special "wag" URLs. If you see something want on the dog cam Friday night between 10pm and 12am (EST), you'd better act quickly!
"I've given them the latitude to make some awesome bargains, so if you're staying up late...," tempts Mayer in Small Dog's newsletter. "We will also be open on Saturday the 24th to take your orders for the latest version of Mac OS X."
To date this is the first Jaguar-specific sales event that we've heard of here at IGM. If your organization plans special X.2-release festivities, feel free to e-mail us with the relevant info.
And, by all means, stop by Small Dog on Friday night between 10pm and 12am (EST) to take full advantage of their Midnight Madness sale!
