I am pleased as punch to announce our Apple Watch giveaway with our friends at Stack Social! It's straight forward—register to receive deal notifications from TMO, and you'll be entered into a drawing for an Apple Watch. You can get additional entries by getting your friends to register, too. Check out the rules for the details—the winner will be drawn on February 17th, 2015—likely before Apple actually released the Apple Watch. So enter! And good luck.
This deal has proven to be quite popular: it's lifetime access to more than 5,000 hours of video tutorials for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Lightroom, Premier, all of Adobe's powerful applications. Learning how to use them, let alone learning how to make the most of them, comes with a steep learning curve, and Adobe likes to rewrite its own UI rules with each new version. Thanks to our friends at StackSocial, you can get lifetime access to more than 5,00 Adobe-Authorized training videos for just $79. That level of pass is usually $500, so if you're looking for the training, get on it.
There's still time to take advantage of the Name Your Own Price Learn to Code Bundle, a package of video tutorials designed to teach you how to code for the Web. The way it works is this: pay what you want. If you pay less than the average price, you get Programming Java for Beginnings and PSD to HTML5/CSS3. If you pay the average price or more, you also get six other developer course. The average price is $15.05 as of this writing. But, you have an incentive to pay more, because 10 percent of your purchase price goes to one of three charities, you choose: Child's Play, World Wildlife Fund, Creative Commons.
NetSpot Pro is a Mac utility that allows you to map your Wi-Fi network, identify the strong and weak zones in your coverage, see where competing networks or other radio signals might be interfering, and generally understand your network. It has a lot of features, and there's a video on the deal listing that shows more about how it works. It's regularly priced at $149, but through our deal it's just $19.
Did you know our developer bundles are usually the most popular deals on our TMO Deals site? It's true, and we have a Name Your Own Price bundle today designed to help you learn how to design iPS apps. Name Your Own Price deals allow you to literally name your own price. If you pay less than the average on this one, you'll get two of the items below. If you beat the average price, which is currently $10.94, you'll get four courses and hundreds of design assets, including:
- The Ultimate Collection Of Design Graphics From Creative VIP
- Assets For Simplifying The Web & Mobile Design Process
- Freebo Design Asset Bundle
- Mobile App Design From Scratch: Design Principles & UX
- iPhone App Interface Design For Beginners

That's a lot of learning. And remember that 10 percent of your purchase price goes to one of three charities (your choice): Child's Play, World Wildlife Fund, or Creative Commons.
We have a killer giveaway through our friends at Stack Social. It's for the GoPro Hero4 camera, the newest GoPro model. It will film in 1080p at 120 fps, 2.7K at 50 fps, and 4K at 30 fps. Come on, that's incredible! It can capture 12 megapixel stills at 30 fps, has a more powerful processor than previous models, and is generally-speaking bad-ass. To register, all you have to do is sign up to receive email notifications of TMO deals. Easy. Plus, the winner will be picked on December 15th so that the GoPro Hero4 can be delivered by Christmas. Good luck!
With the holidays nigh, many of us will have new iOS devices in the house. If so, you may need new Lightning cables, too, and we have a deal on an Apple MFi-certified 10-foot Lightning cable. It's $18.99. It retails for $40, which is still inexpensive for a Lightning cable that long.
We have a great deal for you on HyperDrive, the device that allows you to turn your 13-inch MacBook Air's memory card slot into a microSD memory card. It's also available for a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. One of the things I like most about it is that when plugged in, it sits flush against your MacBook's body. It's a great way to expand your MacBook's storage because it supports any microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC card up to 128GB. This deal includes an 8GB microSD card, and it normally retails for $40. Through our deal, it's $29.99, making it a great gift for you or a loved on.
We have a fun deal for you today on MiP, the smartphone-controlled robot. Using a free app from the App Store, you can control MiP right from your iPhone or iPad (Android users can use it, too—check the deal for compatible Android devices). MiP balances on two wheels, and it has seven modes: MiP, tracking, dance, roam, tricks, cage and stack. You can also direct him using gestures. Praise him, and he'll be your best friend. But if you push him over, he gets angry. Come on, that's cool! MiP retails for $100, but through our deal he's yours for $89.99.
Our friends at Stack Social have brought special pricing for the holidays for the Complete iOS Design Course with Sketch. It includes 30 hours of video tutorials that show you how to design iOS apps using Sketch design software. You'll learn how to use Sketch, tips on workflow, understanding the role of plugins, practice designing by mimicking popular icons and apps, and more. Normally our deal pricing on this bundle is $89 (retail is $499), but for a few more days you can get it for $49.
