We mentioned the Black Hawk Drone with SD camera deal a couple of weeks ago. It sold out almost immediately, and it got a name change to Code Black Drone, but there's a pre-order available for the HD version for just $89, $10 less when it ships (and it will retail for $199 outside of our deal channel). In any event, Code Black Drone is a cool looking quadcopter with an onboard camera, an HD camera in this case. The pre-order deal has only two days left, so if you want one for yourself or as a gift, grab it now.
Our deal for the Complete iOS 8 + Swift Developers Course for $89 is ending in three days. This is a $998 package of developer training courses that includes some 350 videos and 36 hours of content. In addition to teaching you what's new in iOS 8 and Xcode 6, you'll also learn Swift, Apple's new programming language. No programming experience is necessary. As a bonus, this deal also includes the Complete iOS 7 Course.
The Blue Bluetooth Shower Speaker has been a very popular deal with our readers, but there's just four days left. For $39, you can get a water-resistant speaker built for your shower. That means music or podcasts or whatever sound floats your boat while you bathe, without worrying about wrecking your iPhone. Huzzah! It has a rechargable battery, works up to ten meters from the source, and connects to your iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, PC, or Android device via Bluetooth.
We usually promote one deal a day, but through our friends at Stack Social, we actually have a ton of deals going at any one time. Right now, for instance, we have not one, but four different free offers. Check 'em out.

Come on, that's rad. It's $19.99, making it a fine gift, too.
