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.
Longtime readers know that I love toys, especially when they're controlled from my iPhone or iPad. Check out the SmartPlane, a biwing airplane that can be controlled from most iOS devices and some Android devices. It uses Bluetooth LE (Bluetooth Smart) for controlling, and the company said pairing is easy from the custom control app. It works with iphone 4S or newer; iPod touch 5th Gen or newer; iPad 3rd Gen or newer; iPad mini. On the Android side, you need Bluetooth Smart and Android 4.3 or newer. There's a video showing the plane in use, but please don't be that guy that buzzes passersby. Through our deal, the SmartPlane is $49.99.
We have a deal for you today on Decibel, a Mac music player for audiophiles. It has a minimal interface, an optional 31-band equalizer, and it supports FLAC,Ogg Vorbis, Musepack, WavPack, Monkey’s Audio, Speex, True Audio, Apple Lossless, AAC, MP3, MOD, DSF, DSDIFF, WAVE and AIFF. That's about as close to "all music formats" as I've seen, and it makes Decibel a powerful music playback app for your Mac. Thanks to our friends at StackSocial, we have it for US$19.99. The regular price is $32.99. You can read more about it on the deal page.
Today's deal is for the iStabilizer Dolly, an adjustable dolly on wheels that you can use to stabilize photographs and video taken with a camera or your iPhone. It's a great way to add a cinematic feel to your videos, unless of course, you like herky-jerky images that will make your friends and YouTube followers suspect you've been spending some quality time with meth. Check out the deal page for a video showing it in use. This is a very cool device, and you can get and the smartphone mount for $38.99, a little more than half price from retail at $65.
We have another name your own price bundle from our friends at Stack Social, the Summer Blockbuster Mac Bundle. This is ten apps, including Path Finder and Fantastical, an app that won the TMO Editors' Choice Award. The other apps are Flux 4, Gemini, Logoist, Tunes Cleaner, MacX iPhone DVD Ripper, DiscLabel, SyncMate Expert 5, and Tangerine. Here's how it works: you can pay any price you want and get three of the apps (Tangerine, DiscLabel, and Syncmate Expert 5). If you pay more than the average, which is currently US$10.89, you'll get all 10 apps. But there's more: 10 percent of the profits go to a charity of your choice, and if you pay enough to make the Top 10, you'll be entered into a drawing for a MacBook Air. It's hard to lose with that.
The MondoHub has Twenty-Four USB 2.0 ports and Four USB 3.0 ports for a total of 28 USB ports, all hanging off your USB3 Bus. This will work with your USB2 bus, too, if that's what you have. You can switch power for each port on and off independently, and there are ports on the top and two sides of the device making for plenty of cable-plugging room while remaining as compact as possible. Be done with upgrading to a new hub each time you get a new device. For a penny less than US$55 this is your final answer!
We have a deal for you today on Techtool Pro and Checkmate, two powerful diagnostic and monitoring programs for your Mac. Techtool Pro is a troubleshooting and repair utility for your hard drive. The software has been around for 25 years, and it can do one-click testing of your CPU, memory, and hard drive. If your hard drive has a problem, it can do data recovery, rebuild your volume, and more. Checkmate is software that sits in the background looking for problems. Micromat designed it so that it only operates when your Mac is idle, too, so it won't get in your way. Together these two apps cost $125, but through our friends at Stack Social we have it for $49.99.
Have you heard of SellYourMac.com? It's like Gazelle, but for Macs. I would have mentioned as a Cool Stuff Found article, but instead I get to offer it to you as a deal through our friends at Stack Social. In any event, if you're looking for a hassle-free way to sell an old Mac, you can go to SellYourMac.com, enter the specifics of your Mac and get a quote. If you like the price, proceed. If not, don't. It's pretty simple. Just like with all of the sell-your-device services, including Gazelle, Apple, and Amazon, you'll get a better price if you sell it directly to someone else, but a lot of don't have the time or energy for dealing with that process. Our deal works like this: click through to the deal listing and follow the prompts. You'll get an instant digital coupon you can apply after you get your quote for a $15 bonus credit, and it's free. Cool, eh?
