Yeah. You beat me by less than a minute. What will be next?

vote-for68vote-against

Just saw it ... and with every subsection.woot, it's becoming less "woot" and more "just another e-commerce site" ...

vote-for13vote-against

@jsimsace: No idea I was wondering the same. Add a few more and they will need to redesign the site again.

vote-for12vote-against

I thought standard Woot.com had tech pretty well covered.

vote-for19vote-against

The only thing I fear is that soon... all we will be hearing in future woot-offs is something along the lines of "shouldn't this be on tech.woot?"

vote-for9vote-against

Meh, I don't actually mind it all that much. Honestly I'm waiting for a tech.woot wootoff to see what the quality of the offered gadgets are. Besides there is a home.woot and the main woot site has a pyrex set on it, so it seems it's still the loveable hodge podge I grew to be obsessed with.

@jsimsace: "What will be next?"

I'm guessing socks.woot.....or lightbulbs.woot.....or books.woot? (Actually, that last one could be a good idea!)

vote-for31vote-against

Who cares!!! Woot.com died along time ago. deals.Woot is the only reason I stick around. It's like looking at a really bad car wreck you feel really bad and try not to look but it happens anyways.

vote-for12vote-against

I'm hoping for more unusual tech gadgets on the new page instead of the same ol' stuff. That would be awesome!

vote-for15vote-against

I have been buying and using woot for about 5 years now. I used to feel like I was part of the woot "club", now it seems to be getting so commercial and out of hand! I feel like I have lost touch

vote-for6vote-against

Eventually i wonder what we can expect to be sold on woot.com since they have so many others now.

vote-for11vote-against

Woot.com will always have the best deal of the day. It might be something from tech, home, kids, sport, etc. Best. Deal. Period.

@thunderthighs: lol thunderthighs I am sorry but everytime i read your screen name i wonder what you look like.

welcome tech.woot! now all the trackers need to catch up for the upcoming wootoffs

vote-for20vote-against

Ugh. Pretty soon they should just rename the site "Amazon Jr."

vote-for5vote-against

It's unfortunate that the site debut is a near useless, crappy razer product. Interested to see what they will have in the days to come.

vote-for6vote-against

@icemanforlife: as far as thunderthighs looks... the story goes that her son picked out the name. So maybe that will adjust your mental image...?

vote-for8vote-against

@icemanforlife: Her name is just a trick to throw off all the hoards of men who would hound her if they knew she really looks very much like Angelina Jolie.....

vote-for5vote-against

I like it. I spend many hours hunting tech deals anyway...thanks Woot!

@soilwork729: We did just update it with some woot plus sales -- One with some refurb SSD's at tempting prices (even for refurbs!)

vote-for2vote-against

@russchott: i was wondering where the woot plus stuff was. there it is. refurb USB 3.0's

vote-for2vote-against

@jsimsace it'll be either books.woot or cars.woot

I seem to remember a quote from William Peterson about how he was leaving his TV show because he was afraid a day would come when C.S.I.: Toledo premiered and he did not want to be a party to that.

Therefore, I believe that @snapster is actually William Peterson.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH.....

Me, I'm just wondering if a day is coming that woot has no product for the front page because everything in the warehouse has an individual wootsite.

flyingmonkey.woot, roomba.woot, dysonvac.woot, dysonfan.woot, fujibatteries.woot...

vote-for4vote-against

I don't mind it. :D I like woot.com as well as all its other category woots.

vote-for6vote-against

It's getting a bit ridiculous at this point, with this many woot pages they really need to start combining them onto one page.

vote-for5vote-against

@xochiluvr: You forgot leakfrog.woot. I'm just not sure if we have another shade of green left for that one.

@reginafilangee: I like the books.woot idea and, since we're at it, how about pets.woot or, what would certainly be my favourite,....jewelry.woot!

vote-for2vote-against

Went there wanting to hate it, ended up buying a refurb USB drive for cheap (super cheap after JumboWoot coupon).

vote-for3vote-against

So I'll admit I'm not a fan of reading. What'll be the differences between regular woot and tech.woot? What's the target audience difference between the two?

Really, I'm just not sure what woot's primary focus of offerings will be anymore. Would someone be able to clarify? Thanks!

vote-for9vote-against

Fun history lesson:
When woot started it was tech only... then woot started to put some non tech stuff on, keep in mind there was only one woot at that time. We were mad (duh it was change) we came to woot every day at midnight for a chance of buying THE electronic gizmo of the day or the rare BOC. Not some non powered thing that only my wife would get excited about.

The term we used was "I can't believe I stayed up for this" It was polite but expressed our utmost disdain for the non tech item.

@reginafilangee: Same thing I thought about bling.woot- just a matter of time.

vote-for2vote-against

Just saw it.. now wondering what, other than all of the mice from sellout, will end up being listed there.

Based on the below, this should prove an interesting development.

I like it. Won't be long before we get to acraigl.woot.com. However, in that channel, only bags of crap and beer-related t-shirts will be for sale.

vote-for4vote-against

While I'm not totally crazy about the movement simply due to the inevitable granularity and fragmentation that will occur, I wouldn't mind if they added a shooter.woot or everythingforshootingbutguns.woot. I wouldn't mind a majorappliances.woot either...

vote-for5vote-against

given woot's tech-heavy focus, i think tech.woot is one of the few relevant woot subsites. Sure, it seems like "yet another woot url" but i find it more in line with woot's typical offerings than lets say.. sport.woot.

Just sayin.

STOP IT! STOP MAKING NEW SUBSITES!!!

@thunderthighs said "Woot.com will always have the best deal of the day. It might be something from tech, home, kids, sport, etc. Best. Deal. Period."

The problem is that by definition, then, the other.woot sites are not the best deals, they're just deals.

I like the idea of each other.woot being a completely different kind of marketing/audience channel. That's what deals and local are - even shirt has an underlying system that differentiates it (reckonings, etc). Sellout is nothing more than woot2, as moofi is woot3. tech/home/sports/etc are basically nothing more than forks of woot Prime. Take all the plus shops and put them on plus.woot. and have a dedicated woot store.

@abramokids: They wont stop until woot looks like this:

I thought Woot was bought by Amazon, then sold to Yahoo.
So who's next?

vote-for3vote-against

@gidgaf: "Sold to Yahoo"
Yeah, no. That never happened. A long time ago, sellout.woot was a tie-in with Yahoo shopping. I think that's what you're thinking of.

If you scroll all the way to the bottom of Amazon's page, there is a link to Woot.

vote-for4vote-against

you guys did a bunch of research and, based on resultant demand and projections, created yet another site whose objective is to provide the community with an additional place to find more products at great prices....a site targeted to our obvious interests?

WHAT KIND OF CRAP IS THAT? REAL NICE, WOOT.

i remember when it was just woot.com and shirt.woot. no matter how many sub-woots there are i'll probably still check it out. it's pretty much hardwired in my brain now
