Last Day for the Mac Spring 2012 Bundle From Cult of Mac

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 09:55 AM

"A truly awesome deal like this only comes around every once in a while...but a truly awesome deal like this also won't last for very long either! In fact, the Mac Spring 2012 Bundle is around for less than 24 hours, so you'd better grab these amazing 10 Mac apps while you can!"

I picked up one of these myself, mainly for four programs: MoneyWell, Circus Ponies Notebook, Home Inventory and GarageSale. All the other ones are just a bonus. Great deal for $49.99 but it ends today. You can check it out here.

Weekend Sale on iPad 2 Display Dock from PCGadgets

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 11:17 AM

"Take advantage of our pre-holiday 65% off sale of our very popular iPad 2 Display Dock."

65% off is a pretty good deal, if you want to display your iPad in something similar to what the Apple retail stores use. They have dropped the price down to $24.95 from $69.95 USD, this weekend only.

Best Buy Giving Away 3GS Today, Sort Of...

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 11:00 PM

"For someone that doesn't want to jump on the latest iPhone later this year, they will be able to pick up some great deals on older models as large retailers clear out stock of older models."

And one of those deals is today, as Best Buy is "selling" the iPhone 3GS for $0.00 dollars as long as you commit to a two year contract with AT&T. You can see the leaked ad here, but it appears the sale will be starting tomorrow for the normally $49.99 priced iPhone. With an iPhone 5 imminent, I can see why they want to clear these phones out of inventory. The demand is still there, since Apple is still building the 3GS. Personally, this close I think I would wait, but that is just me.

Apple's Educational iMac

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Desktops" @ 02:30 PM

"Apple quietly launched a lower-price 21-inch iMac on its Apple Store for Higher Education - seemingly in time to capture some of the lucrative back-to-school market. My question: Does anyone still buy desktop computers for students going to college?"

I'd say no. These days I can't imagine students wanting anything other than a laptop. And this is a scaled down version so for $200.00 USD you can get a much better machine. Faster CPU, double hard drive space, double RAM and double the video RAM. I'd spend the extra $200.00 USD to get that much more capability, wouldn't you?

EA Back to School Sale

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 11:44 AM

Is This The Beginning of a Price War With iTunes?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 02:00 AM

", which is a distant No. 2 to Apple Inc. as a retailer of downloadable music, has upped the ante or, rather, lowered its prices to compete with iTunes."

Dropping $0.20 USD from their normal price of $0.89 USD, this is quite a deal from iTunes has 70% market share and is far back with only 10%, so is this a shot across the bow so to speak to steal some of iTunes customers? I've purchased, and will continue to purchase, music from with deals like this in the mix. makes it pretty easy to add the music to your iTunes library anyway so it isn't that much more difficult than buying directly through iTunes. I guess you could label me one of those "opportunistic" cherry pickers the article talks about. What about you, where do you get your music?

"Today only, Amazon has Photoshop Lightroom for for Mac and PC for $188.99. (It retails at $299)"

AT&T Sale on iPad Cases

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 03:00 AM!5759169/att-be...0-off-fire-sale

""iPad 2 rumor posts have been done to death by now-we get it! It's coming very soon!-but this one could actually save you a bit of coin should you want to keep your current iPad, so, enjoy."

The sale started Sunday, at all AT&T stores, and they are clearing out all iPad products for 50% off. Just adding more fuel to the iPad 2 impending release right?

EA Mobile Game Sale to Celebrate Valentine's Day, But Only For Two Days

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 08:00 AM

"EA Mobile is getting into the upcoming Valentine's Day festivities by having a two-day App Store sale."

Two days gets you to the 11th, a bit short of Valentine's Day, but a sale is a sale. They have an extensive list of games that are on the cheap for the next two days, so it's worth a look since some are discounted pretty heavily, including Scrabble, Monopoly and Madden Football '11.

Trade in Your Old iPhone for iPhone 4 Credit at Target

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 06:00 AM

"Starting this Sunday, February 6th, & ending on Saturday, February 12th, those with a used iPhone 3G/3GS in working condition will be able to trade their old iDevices in at Target and receive up to $200 in credit towards an iPhone 4."

Of course, when you do this, you will be required to lock in on a 2-year commitment to AT&T. I'm sure as the time between now and June gets shorter, we are going to see lots of deals on current inventory, so If you can wait that is what I would do since we are all expecting the iPhone 5 to be released in June this year. It's becoming one of those things that is just expected isn't it? Not sure what we will do when the time comes and no new iPhone is released. There are also other deals in the article on a variety of products so even if you don't want an iPhone 4, you can still find some bargains.

Learn to Switch to Mac Available at Steep Discount

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 10:00 AM

"We've been hearing a lot about how many new Mac users there are. During the January first-quarter financial call, for example, we heard that not only were Mac sales up 23 percent over the same quarter a year earlier, but about half of the Macs sold in Apple Stores during that quarter were to people who had never owned a Mac before."

And what might help all of these switchers is this handy program called "Learn to Switch to Mac" available now [affiliate link] in the Mac App store for $0.99 USD, down from the normally priced $24.95 USD (if you were to purchase it separate from the $99.00 USD Parallels bundle). Basically it teaches you an action that you would do in Windows, how to do the same action in OS X, and then will let you try it, learn by doing if you will. If you have anyone that is switching, this is a heck of a deal for some good basic training on OS X.

Its not the ClamCase, but it is a pretty good deal if you are looking for a case and keyboard for your iPad and don't want to wait.

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 08:59 AM

"Radio Shack is extending its iPhone sale until Friday December 31st, thanks to a number of store sellouts. The retailer is offering up the 16GB iPhone 4 for $148.99 through the end of the year. The 8GB version of its predecessor, the iPhone 3Gs, is priced at $48.99. Both models are marked down $51 from their suggested retail price."

Best Buy Offers Deal on iPhone 3GS, Today Only

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 12:47 PM

"Only a few days after Radio Shack unveiled the first iPhone sale in recorded history, Best Buy's done one better -- it's offering up the 8GB iPhone 3GS "to qualified customers" without charging a cent for the handset."

Pretty good deal, even if you have to commit to two more years. Unless of course you are holding off waiting for that Verizon CDMA iPhone, but perhaps changing your mind is the intent.

MacFriendly Bundle Released

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 07:12 PM

"MacFriendly has released their new MacFriendly Bundle of 11 applications for Mac users. The Bundle is valued at over $500 and is available for a limited time for only $39.99, which represents a savings of over 90% off the list prices. The bundle includes 11 downloadable software applications, and the latest version of each application is included in the bundle."

I don't buy too many bundles, because I usually only find one or two programs that I'll use and it makes for financial sense for me to just buy what I'm going to use. But if you like to experiment and try new software out, these bundles make a lot of sense. You can't really argue that they aren't a good buy, $530.00 USD for a price of $39.99 USD is a heckuva discount, I just don't like installing and reinstalling if I'm not that sure I'll be using the program. The latest one is from MacFriendly and you can find out more about their bundle here. So, what are your thoughts, do you go for the bundles or prefer to cherry pick?

"CoPilot Live, the full-featured, voice-guided GPS navigation application for iPhones and iPads is slashing the price of its award-winning apps starting today and through the busy Thanksgiving holiday travel week ahead."

CoPilot Live USA sells for $2.99 USD [affiliate link], and the North America version sells for $9.99 USD [affiliate link], with both including a 14-day free trial of the ActiveTraffic reporting, which gives updates on traffic conditions throughout the US. The reviews vary from best thing since sliced bread to dont buy ever, but for $2.99 USD, might be worth a chance if you are looking for a GPS program for your iPhone. Personally, on my last trip, I just used the Google Maps app and did fine.
