I got me some new shoes, since the sole is starting to come off my current pair and every time I walk there is a quiet puff of air escaping them.

Nice shoes Disco!

My projector deal turned out to be a pricing error. Just waiting for my cancellation email and refund.

Thanks man, I saw that deal on Ozbargain for the projector so they'll have a lot of refunds to do

Yeah, it's a joke how long it went on for before they updated their website to not take anymore orders. The annoying part was that they had the 'clearance' tag on their website so it did seem legit that they just wanted to get rid of their remaining stock. The last two times there was a ridiculous discount from OW, it was pretty clear it was a pricing error so I didn't bite but this time it seemed it could have been legit.

Oh well, worth a shot... hopefully the refund gets processed quickly. Apparently they got 1900 orders according to the internal memo that was sent around.

Getting an aeropress has been great for work - though I routinely get asked "what is that?" and "Is that an Aeropress? How does it work?"

Sphero! Like the little BB-8 remote controlled droids you could get, just not Star Wars-y and without the top bit.

Yep, they are a phone controlled ball that rolls around.
There is also some programming that can be done with it too, I haven't had a chance to look into that yet though
I did look at the BB-8 model of it, but it was over twice the price, and I hadn't read good reviews on the extra top bit tacked on

My current first world problem is that because it is controlled by my phone, I can't drive it and video it at the same time :(

Besides these being of use for work, they also make great tax deductions!
