I have some pretty exciting news to share with y’all! I was recently asked to join the Windows Champions program as a blogger ambassador! Squee! I know, right?! I’ll be receiving a new Windows laptop and tablet sometime in the next month or so, and I’ll be sharing my experiences with my new Windows devices and Windows 8 with you once I receive them and start playing with them. In the meantime, I wanted to share some awesome Black Friday and Cyber Monday Windows deals – I know you’re all getting ready to kick off your holiday shopping this coming weekend!

Windows Phones Now Have Instagram!
Everyone’s favorite photo app is here: Instagram. The arrival of Instagram on Windows Phone brings one of the world’s most popular social photo apps to what many critics have called the world’s best smartphone cameras. Use Instagram to transform special holiday moments into shareable works of art. Just grab a picture from your Photos Hub, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram (or share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Foursquare).
