We wouldn't want you to overspend on apps and games, even really cool ones. That's why we keep an eye on the sales in the Play Store. Here's another batch of discounted apps just in time for your weekend.
Finding a decent ten inch tablet that won't break the bank can be an interesting process. There are so many options on the market, it's easy to get overwhelmed. If, however, you're in the market for something from the ASUS Transformer line, there's a pretty solid deal on eBay happening right now: the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is just $200. Keep in mind that we're talking about the Tegra 3 model here, by the way - not last year's TF701, which features the Tegra 4 chip.
The original Galaxy Gear was a tough sell at $299. Heck, even at the $199 price you can find it for these days, it's still a tough sell. Let's be honest, even paying that much for any of the quarter-dozen Gears Samsung replaced the gadget with takes some convincing. But $99? That's a number I can get behind, and it's one I'm sure some of you can as well. Today eBay Daily Deals has the Galaxy Gear, refurbished, available in three colors for precisely that amount.
Time to check your email – Google is sending out some deals to an unknown number of users. If you get the magic email, Google will let you buy up to five new-ish albums for $1.99 each. This is attached to specific accounts, so there's no way to get access to the deal unless you are selected by the all-powerful Google computer.
Sprint or Verizon customers in the market for a new Galaxy S5 might want to meander on over to Amazon right about now. Currently the site has the handset available for just $99.99 with a two-year contract, half of the usual upfront fee. This deal is applicable both for new customers and people looking to upgrade to another device.
Verizon users who would prefer to avoid Amazon do have a few options.
When it comes to publishers, few names stand out in the technical world like O'Reilly. With literally thousands of books and videos, there are topics ranging from Programming to Business, and Fitness to Photography. Not only does O'Reilly print under its own name, but it also owns several other brands including: Wiley, Packt Publishing, No Starch Press, and more. Almost every developer probably has a small stack of books with the trademark line-drawn animals on the covers.
If you have an Amazon.com Rewards Visa card, now might be the time to go shopping - they're currently offering 20% off purchases of a large list of "select" electronics, with a maximum total discount of $50. There is no maximum number of items you may use the discount on, but you can only use it on a single Amazon order - then it's gone. The promo code is TCH20ARC.
Boy, whoever picks those Amazon Gold Box sale items sure likes flash storage. It seems like at least once a week they've got a fire sale on SD cards, flash drives, and other descendants of the floppy. Today's sale has PNY-branded cards of both the SD and MicroSD variety, the latter of which will probably interest mobile users.
If you just need a little extra storage for some music and photos, the 16GB MicroSD card is $9.99, half off from a retail price of $20.
If you think that Samsung's "Pro" line of tablets are too expensive, you're in good company. And apparently that company includes the folks at Amazon, because they've discounted every Galaxy Tab Pro and Note Pro model by a considerable margin. They're still expensive, at least compared to other Android tablets, but they might be a little more palatable with a lower price tag.
Let's take it from the top, shall we?
