Bridge games are great fun. For the uninitiated, the game gives you a gap between two cliff faces or whatever, and you have to build a stable, sturdy bridge, to, erm, bridge said gap. It's good, then, that Bridge Constructor Playground, from Headup Games, is $0.10 or its equivalent in many countries, although not in the US. Read More

Here's a deal that should please just about everyone. Target's Cyber Monday promotion started today and is offering 15 percent off tens of thousands of different products. Purchases made with a Target Red card are also eligible for an addition 5% off for a total savings of near 20% (the 5% discount is applied after the 15% discount, so it's slightly less than 20% off).
As you might imagine, certain brands and product categories are excluded from the promotion. The most notable exclusions for our tech addicted readers are Bose, GoPro, Sonos, Google products, DSLR cameras, LG & Samsung TVs. Dairy products, alcohol, Vitamix blenders, and Elf on the Shelf are also on the excluded products list. Read More
If you're in the market for an action camera that can shoot in insane 4K resolution, you could do worse than the YI. Jeff Beck gave the camera an easy recommendation versus the more common GoPro models in his review, even if users will need to buy the accessories separately. Today Amazon has the YI 4K, in black, white, and pink colors, for $50 off. That brings the camera down to just $199.99. Read More
Connected gadgets like Google Home and Amazon's Echo are neat enough by themselves, but they really come into their own when paired with connected home tech. If you'd like to get started on a collection of said tech, Google subsidiary Nest is currently holding a Black Friday Sale with $50 off of each of its flagship products: the Nest Thermostat, the Nest Cam security camera, and the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide detector. All prices are good on the Nest online store. Read More
If I was going to spend about $600 on a phone, I wouldn't put it down on a Sony device. Don't get me wrong, I love the company, but I don't think its prices for the past year or so have been realistic and I would fear the huge loss in resale value. But that's just me. If you like Sony, this deal should be right up your alley.
The unlocked Sony Xperia XZ with a US warranty is down to $580-$600 on Amazon. When it was first released, the XZ was priced at $699.99, but we saw its price drop to $649.99 in October. Read More
One thing we're all thankful for as geeks is the multitude of deals on phones, gadgets, accessories, and general nerdy stuff. And we're even more thankful when said deal is on a piece of technology that benefits all the other pieces of technology in our possession, like the router.
If you want to upgrade your router setup at home, you can grab an ASUS OnHub or TP-Link router from Amazon today for a significantly discounted price. Both are 38% off, which brings their price down about $75. The ASUS goes from $199.99 to $123.99 and the TP-Link goes from $199.99 to $124.89. This is the best deal we've seen on both routers; previously, the ASUS was down to $130 once and the TP-Link never went lower than $179.87. Read More
Another week, another couple of apps you can grab for next to free from the Play Store and this time we're talking about edjing PRO and Rayman Jungle Run.
edjing PRO is a professional DJ app with plenty of features to create your perfect mix. Use your own media library, SoundCloud, Deezer, or Vimeo to find the tunes, prepare sets, match bpms, queue songs, and more. It usually costs $4.99 and doesn't have any other IAPs.
Rayman Jungle Run is a classic adventure platformer where you jump over obstacles, dodge monsters and traps, and progress through the levels while collecting coins. It's priced at $2.99 with a few $1.99 IAP items. Read More
It seems like ever since the Google Home launched, we can't have enough of these Amazon Echo deals. Maybe it's related, but maybe it's just the fact that the Echo is about 2 years old now, or that the new Echo Dot is super cheap and causing internal competition in the line-up. Regardless of the reason, we love it when prices drop so we can get the same gadgets for less — or more gadgets for the same budget, because let's face it, the bucks we save here will be spent on other gear.
The Amazon Echo normally costs $180, but recently we've seen its price drop to $140 new and $260 with a Philips Hue A19 Starter Kit. Read More
The new Moto Z line is divisive. It's probably the best example in a limited field of new "modular" phones, consisting of only the Z variants and LG's G5... and LG already dropped the modular design for its more recent V20. But if you've been eying either the Verizon-exclusive Moto Z Droid (or the Moto Z Force Droid with a bigger battery) or the unlocked Moto Z, the sticker shock of the phones and the Moto Mod add-ons may have been a disincentive. Now Motorola is giving a generous $150 off all of them on its web store. Read More
