An ill wind blew some good

Following on from the problems in last night's Hangout where my headset failed for the second time I raced out to the shops this morning and purchased a new one. I'll keep my old headset as a backup as it seems to work spasmodically.

New Gear
There was no doubt about me buying the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 from JB HiFi (who price-matched Officeworks) when I noted the Purple sticker "Get 40% cashback". On arriving home I went to the Microsoft website to put in the claim for my cashback and found that there is a whole list of Microsoft accessories that one can buy with this offer at participating retailers prior to the 1st February.

Participating Retailers
I was waiting until I went to Rootstech in the US to buy a couple of new mouses and who knows what else but, with that cashback offer, prices should be better than in the US so I'm returning to the  local shops to add to my collection of tech toys.

If you are into Hangouts on Air you need a headset (as was demonstrated when mine failed),  this is a good opportunity to purchase a good headset and any other essentials that are on the product list.

Thanks for this info Jill. As a podcaster, I'm always looking for good headsets. My old favourite from Dick Smith (probably about 5 years old now, or more) will give up the ghost one day. I've experimented with lots of types over the years but the good ones are hard to come by. Thanks for the tip.
