NewerTech ships NuGuard keyboard cover for Retina MacBook pro
Upgrade and accessory manufacturer Newer Technology has announced the NuGuard keyboard cover for the 2012 Retina display MacBook Pro. The black silicone cover is the first keyboard cover on the market for the new model MacBook Pro, and matches the full-size keyboard. The form-fitting sheet molds to cover each key and the space between keys for protection against key wear, hair, spills, and detritus. The NuGuard keyboard cover is available from OWC and select retail establishments at a retail price of $20.
Price-matching policy implemented at Best Buy Canada
Best Buy Canada and Future Shop have revised their price match and return policies in response to customer demand and the changing nature of retail. BOth establishments are launching "price beat promise," a guarantee to customers that if a competitor online or in-store has an item selling for less, Best Buy and Future Shop will beat it by 10 percent. The new price-matching policy is an attempt to defeat "showrooming," or evaluating a sales floor for product price and features, and buying elsewhere.
