I was able to preorder a Wii bundle from Walmart.com yesterday. Thanks to some clever software that alerted me on my cell phone just seconds after walmart put them up for grabs. Now I have all kinds of alerts setup to ensure that me and all of my friends who want one get a Nintendo Wii.
I feel bad for all of the poor people who actually waited outside for 24+ hours at Toys R Us to get their Wii pre-orders. It took me a while 5 minutes to setup an alert that got me my Wii.
I'm keeping my eye on Target.com and Amazon now....
