Tech blog I4U seems to think that German computer maker Medion will be releasing a knockoff of the Apple IPad soon. Medion products are carried by Aldi stores in the USA, so who knows. You might score an AldiPad by the end of the year.

Ah, spring. The roses are blooming, the birds keep making nests behind our shutters, and it's time to buy patio stuff at Aldi. They have a fantastic gazebo on sale for $99 from now until the weekend. I've had one for two years and for the price, it's a steal. That fire pit is looking nice for $60 too. Check out the other deals this week as well.
