Today's DOTD has a RAZR M for free, but under the unactivated price, it says $99.99. So if I understand that right, I should be able to get one unactivated, aka off contract, for $100, right?

It appears that way. If I weren't on AT&T I'd be all over that.

I'm pretty sure it's usually 99 to buy it w/contract. I don't think it will be 99.99 off contract.

However, I wonder if it stacks with that $50 giftcard Link mentioned at the top of the cellphone pages. So, if you upgrade to this phone you get a free phone and $50 giftcard for nothing?

EDIT: Nevermind... that requires you to activate your phone on the 10th or later. Dang...

The negativity around Windows 8 baffles me. It's super simple to use, is fast, and rarely has issues like crashing (mine has yet to crash, programs have crashed and stopped loading after closing but not the UI as a whole). Yes it's start screen is "built for a touch screen" so what? It still works well and guess what? Even without a mod you can still have the old desktop running with a simple click (just not the old start menu without a mod). On the new start menu though all you have to do is start typing and BAM brings up a list of stuff, much easier than clicking through the old start menu IMO.

I miss the great deals of the day from BB late last year. Hoping we get some sweet deals soon.

Off topic: I really like windows 8. It is fast, fluid, and a positive change. Between all the OS's which we have all in our home I prefer it.

The reason for the negativity varies. The negativity I have been told comes from friends that either A) Hate/dislike MS in general. What I find funny is the MS they hate is not the same MS it is today, but there is reasons to dislike the MS of today. Like how the divisions compete instead of work together. B) It is vastly different than any other OS and windows. A lot of people hate change. The five minutes to learn something new on a CPU does not appeal to everyone either. C) Fanboy and trolls or individuals with stock in other company such as apple. D) Or the lack of applications, appearance of W8.

Now this from my friends, family, co-workers that have expressed a dislike for W8.
I am sure many have actually valid reasons because there are issues with W8, just like every single OS. I find it funny how my coworker whom has alot of money tied up in apple stock makes a point to talk bad about Android devices, W8/WP8 to anyone that may listen. The thing is he knows nothing of those OS's because he never used them. I believe this is common in the tech world and it actually makes sense for people that have stock in a company. Not very respectable in my opinion, but understood. People become a fan of company, device, OS and take it upon themselves to defend it and talk bad about the competitor. Troll. I have a distaste for that and I think it is short sighted and expreses their insecurities.

You are giving some people way too much credit by attributing their irrational and ignorant dislike or hatred of a product to things like ownership of stock (I know this was only one of several good points you mentioned). Yes, i'm sure that exists, but there are a lot of people who simply don't like something because they decided to latch onto someone else's opinion or a generally popular opinion. It's much easier to do this than to take the time to have an open mind, educate yourself and form your own opinion. There is also a form of bonding that people feel takes place when they agree with others' opinions.

Lastly, even if people do allow themselves some level of education on a subject, they often enter into it with a pre-conceived bias that they will often not give up - regardless of facts.

My biggest gripe, now that I've grown used to W8, is Calculator. Sure, it may seem stupid, but why doesn't ESC = Clear anymore? Unless there's a hotkey I'm missing, the only way to clear the calculator is to actually click on the button, and that's not kosher when you are using your dominant hand to 10-key. You have to take your hand off of the keypad to use the mouse, instead of using your free left hand to just tap ESC.

Like I said, it's stupid, but enough to annoy me.

Did you trade alot? Trade-ins count towards Silver accumulation.

I think anyone who has done the facebook polls were upgraded to Silver, Or it could be because BB is performing maintenance on everyone's accounts until Feb 23.

Pretty sure this is true. I created an account for someone last week so they could do the Facebook polls, and they're Silver already.

60 day price match is the biggest thing, early access to some sales, including black friday sales. free shipping too i believe, 25% more points, everything else youd probably never use unless you use geek squad. ive noticed they put me in silver status as well, i guess it could be the facebook thing, but i dont expect it to stay that way.

i highly doubt the silver status will stay. not exactly fair for people who don't shop at best buy often but do the poll to get free money to be at the same level as people who spend $2,500. We will see after the 23rd I guess.
