So you've seen the Audio Technica ATH-M40X and M50X deal, the Jaybird Bluebuds X deal, and the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 deal, but you've decided to resist the temptation of a bargain and skip them all. I'm here to sway you with another deal because as it's obvious to anyone in the entire universe, it's Black Friday yo! Even my local shoe store halfway around the world in Lebanon is having a BF discount, and if there's anything that tempts me as much as gadgets, it's shoes.
But I digress. Beside its BF bonanza, Amazon still has its daily deals to cover and today sees a couple of interesting headphones appear in that list. Read More
Android Wear is not everyone's thing. I splurged for a Huawei Watch with a mesh link earlier today when Amazon's $100 discount kicked off, but you may not like the look of the Hwatch or the way Android Wear works. Or you might be invested in Samsung's ecosystem and have more faith in the way they handle their wearable's platform. After all, it's your wrist, you can wear whatever you want on it.
In that case, you might want to head to Adorama today. I know, I know, it's not Amazon, and you'll have to create an account if you never shopped there, and do all of that unnecessary work while you're still under the influence of a glucose coma from your meal, but it might be worth the effort of working a few more minutes.

Among our favorite wired headphone brands, Audio Technica sits conveniently toward the top of the list, and we're not alone in thinking that. Amazon customers and people who know more about sound and audio signatures than me like and recommend them as well. If you've been wanting to grab a pair for a while or you just want to supplement your headphone collection with a relatively cheap but good addition, today's your day.
Amazon has the Audio Technica ATH-M40X at an all-time low. According to Camelx3, these usually retail around the $99 mark, and very rarely dip below the $80 line. At $67, they might be getting close to impulse-buy territory, especially since they're almost as cheap as the M30X (which are around $54 now). Read More
OK guys, let's cut to the chase.

If your modern phone or tablet doesn't have a MicroSD card slot like many Android flagships and mid-tier devices released in the last couple of years, you have a few limited options to transfer data between it and other devices or computers. There's Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and finally there's USB OTG. That should be the fastest and if you have a flash drive with both a USB and a MicroUSB connector, you're set. If you don't, you can pick one of the best ones for cheap on Amazon today.
SanDisk's Ultra USB 3.0 flash drives with a MicroUSB connector are on sale now. Read More
Nest's new Cam has been available for a few months with its 1080p video capture and better WiFi signals, but it's not the cheapest connected security cam you can get for your home. If you've been wanting one but the $199 price was a little too hard to digest, you may be happy to know that the Cam has dropped by $25 online.
Both Amazon and Walmart are showing the new Nest Cam at a $175 price (minus a few pennies here and there) and that could be all the persuasion you need to grab one. Or if it was already on your Holiday shopping list, now might be a better time to jump the gun and get one. Read More
Do you want to bust through doors, fire dozens of machine guns, and kill all the baddies? Then This War of Mine isn't what you're looking for. War heroes aren't just the fighters, they're also the survivors who find themselves thrown into a bleak world and have to scrape for meat, find a shelter, protect each other, and just try to get through each day unharmed and alive. That's the aspect of war that This War of Mine taps into, and it does so with surprising depth and sensibility for a "game". Our own Michael was very impressed when he reviewed it. Read More
You may think you have enough Bluetooth speakers, but then you find yourself in a room or a location where you don't have one handy and you start wishing you did. Maybe you placed one in the living room and bedroom, but what about the garden, kitchen, shower, or your gadget bag? Well, it's high time you filled up those silent speakerless spaces with music and podcasts and all the noise and sound that your phone can stream. Best of all? It won't cost you a lot.
At $39.99, AmazonBasics has a very decent deal on its Bluetooth unit with 2 internal 3W speakers, MicroUSB charging, and 15 hours of battery life on streaming. Read More
Deep Dungeon of Doom usually costs $3.99. That's not a bad price to pay for a fun side-scrolling dungeon crawler with different protagonists — crusader, witch, and mercenary — and plenty of levels that throw you back to the good'ol times of gaming with 8-bit graphics and nostalgic sound effects. It's even much more acceptable after the game was updated to remove all in-app purchases. Now all gold has to be earned in order to buy upgrades and all revive tokens have to be won fair and square.

Starting on October 28th, YouTube Red will let folks in the US start watching all the movie trailers, phone reviews, music videos, epic fails, adorable babies, cat clips, and rants they've been consuming for years, sans ads. In exchange, viewers hand over $9.99 a month instead, or $15 if they have a Play Music family plan.
Unless, it turns out, you're one of the early Play Music subscribers. Google is sending out emails to folks who hopped on board in the early summer of 2013 to inform them that when they are transferred to YouTube Red, they will get to keep their discounted $7.99 rate. Read More
