Today's deal could also be a Cool Stuff Found mention. It's called The KICK, and it's a smartphone-sized bank of LED lights you can use for lighting your scene for photos and videos. That's cool by itself, but The KICK can be controlled from your iPhone or Android device. You can control color, brightness, and a variety of built-in "effects" settings to help you get the perfect shot. It's rechargeable and mountable on a tripod. There's a video on the deal page showing it in use, along with more details. Through our deal, you can get it for $149.
We have the opportunity for you to enter a giveaway for an 11-inch MacBook Air through our friends at StackSocial. To enter, sign up to receive exclusive offers via email from Mac Observer Deals. That's it.

There's just one more day left on the Name Your Own Price Summer Blockbuster Mac Bundle, a 10-app bundle for your Mac. This deal lets you name your own price to receive Tangerine, DiscLabel, and Syncmate Expert 5. If you pay more than the average price—which is $11.91 at this time—you'll also get Path Finder 6, Fantastical (winner of the TMO Editors' Choice Award), Flux 4, Gemini, Logoist, Tunes Cleaner, and MacX iPhone DVD Ripper. It's a great deal, but there's more. Not only does buying this bundle help support the developers and TMO, 10 percent of the profits go to a charity. And if you pay enough to make the Leader Board (currently starting at $100), you'll be entered to win an 11-inch MacBook Air. This deal expires on Tuesday morning.
Today's deal is for The Complete iOS 8 + Swift Developers Course (Pre-Order) from Bitfountain, a $998 developer course that you can preorder through our deal for $79. This is a learning-by-doing course designed to teach you how to code for iOS 8 using Apple's new Swift developing language. It includes more than 350 videos with 36.5 hours of content. During the course, you'll make 14 iOS 8 apps and learn how to connect with third party APIs, use Appel's graphical interface builder, work with core data, and a lot more. The course will be released once Apple releases iOS 8 to the public, and this preorder price makes it inexpensive.
We have a great deal on macTuneUp and DiskTools Pro from Macware today. Regularly priced at $110, you can get them through our deal for $24.99. macTuneUp keeps your Mac running fast and it can fix problems with your system, too. It will clear your caches and log file, find duplicates, remove unused language files and more. With DiskTooks Pro, you can defrag your Mac's hard drive (Dave Hamilton will yell at you if you defrag an SSD), repair volumes, create bootable backups, benchmark your drives, find and repair broken aliases, and much more. This deal ends in 4 days.
If you're like me, you sing in the shower and fancy yourself as sounding super awesome. It's a pain to pipe music into your bathroom—you know, because you need a backing track—but Bluetooth has changed that. We have a deal today for a Bluetooth speaker that has a suction cup on the back, is water resistant, and was designed for use in your shower. Better yet, it has a built-in microphone that allows you to use Siri to control music playback in the midst of your shower! Through our deal, you can get it for $39, a substantial discount from the $99 retail price.
I have a deal for Mac gamers today, The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy Bundle. This is three games, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. That's a lot of first person shooting fun, and you get all three titles for US$39.99, and it's half the retail price. The games come via download through Steam, so you won't have to wait long after buying the bundle to start playing.
Hey iPhone photography enthusiasts, I have a cool lens for today's deal. Called the Super Fisheye Clip-On Lens, it offers you 235° of image for a super fisheye effect. As the name suggests, it's a clip-on lens, and it's designed to work with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch (with rear camera), and even HTC and Samsung Android smartphones with rear lenses. It's made of aluminum and glass, and it has a focal length of 0.2x. The regular price is $49, but thanks to our friends at StackSocial, we're able to offer it for $29.
We have another bundle for animators, the CrazyTalk 7 Pro Super Bundle for Mac. This is the professional flip side to the CrazyTalk Animator bundle we ran a few weeks ago, and it includes CrazyTalk 7 Pro for Mac, the Bouncy Buddies Character Pack, the Auto Animation Library, Organic Auto Motion Samples, and the three hour CrazyTalk 7 Training Video. CrazyTalk 7 is for serious animators with a focus on facial animation. The bundle has a retail price of $235, but through our deal, you can get it for $99.95.
