100 dollar Xbox 360: Yes, that’s right folks, Amazon.com is offering a Xbox 360 Core System, a $299.99 value product for only $100.

Amazon.com is willing to offer 1,000 of these Xbox 360 gaming consoles for $100 US dollars  — if enough customers vote for it. They’re holding an old fashioned voting contest between a variety of items with killer deals and as of this point, the Xbox 360 clearly provides the most ‘WANT’ of the deals and at the best price. The only downside… they are highly limited with only 1000 of these machines going out.

 So, go to Amazon and vote for the Xbox 360 to be put up for sale on Thanksgiving 2006 for $100 bucks. Here is the link for customer voting on Amazon.

2. How to score a Playstation 3 (PS3) on launch day: According to devron, when it comes to retail, smaller is better. The author tells us about his story on how he scored an Xbox 360 on launch day. Instead of camping outside bigger retail stores like Best Buy, he opted for the much smaller FYE store at his mall. All he had to do was walk into the store at 8AM on launch day and walk out with his Xbox 360. So remember, smaller is better. In case you have a whole bunch of buddies and ready to camp out, check out his guide to launch day camp outs.

Blue Shirt: We are probably getting maybe 25 units tops. Maybe more. Even we don’t know the exact numbers.

That in one line summarizes the huge anticipation among the student community to grab one of the latest Sony Playstations… the PS3. While the number of units being spread around is around 20 for Best Buy and around 15 for the Circuit City, die-hard gamers are hopeful that they can grab one of the PS3’s.

Check out the pictures and videos taken outside both Best Buy and Circuit City stores in Melbourne, FL. I am only guessing the line is going to keep getting bigger and bigger as the night goes on….

Date and Time: 6:30pm on 11/15/2006. 36 hours before D-day

Q: What is a typical interview structure?

Although there is no set rule, a typical interview is scheduled for about one half-hour to an hour, and will include several phases. The first phase is an icebreaker, a few minutes of pleasant conversation so that you and the interviewer will feel comfortable with each other. Then the interviewer will get into some substantive questions, behavioral questions, and questions about your background. This will be the bulk of the interview and lasts anywhere from 15 to 50 minutes.

An employer will usually leave 5 to 10 minutes for you to ask questions. That’s a very important part of the interview and you should be prepared for it. Then there’ll be a close. The interviewer will thank you for coming in. You’ll have the opportunity to tell the interviewer what a pleasure it was to be there and how much you want the job. Usually, you’ll have to interview a second time, perhaps even a third time before getting a job offer.

Q: How many interviews should I expect with any one employer?

You can expect anywhere from two to three interviews depending on the company’s interviewing process and the number of qualified candidates applying for the position.

Q: What is an interviewer really looking for?

Some people wonder, “What can interviewers learn about me from the questions they ask and what do they really want to hear?” There are several things going through the interviewer’s mind during an interview. The first is, “Why should we hire you?” With questions of this nature, an employer is trying to learn if your skills and abilities meet the company’s requirements, if you have good communication skills, and whether you are dependable, honest, and a team player. He or she wants to find out what you will bring to the team if hired.
