PS4 Alert

Last week I spent some time looking in local stores for a PS4 without a lot of luck. I found an ExtremeTech article about getting a PS4 online and signed up for an account at The alerts work as advertised. That said, there does not appear to be a way to delete your account or info :(

I created a Ruby script that will send you a text message via Twilio whenever a new item is added to the homepage. I intended on filtering for PS4 results but included all items to get started. An interesting side-effect is that I am now receiving texts for all the hot things!

I hope that someone finds this useful :)

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that I tried to be a good net-citizen and not be overly aggresive in my requests. Unfortunately does not seem to support etag or last-modified.
