We have a killer deal on a fun toy for you, Griffin's MOTO TC Rally Car, an RC car you control with your iPhone through a companion app. This USB-rechargeable car can be raced on pavement, and it has impact sensors that detect damage from other drivers and obstacles. You can add armor (that slows you down), and it's usable with iPhone 5/5c/5s, iPhone 4s, iPod touch (5th gen.), iPad 3, 4, and Air, and the iPad mini. It retails for US$99, but in this TMO deal, you can get it for $39.99, an offer that expires in 11 days.
Check out this deal for an e-learning course called iPhone App Interface Design For Beginners that will teach you the basics of iOS interface design and how to implement those principles. The course also teaches you to how to review the results of your interface design so that you can see how it really looks on an iPhone. That's cool, but what's even cooler is that it's just $29 through our friends at StackSocial in this TMO deal. This price expires in seven days, so get to it.
We have a deal for you today for the TOCCs Ultra Slim 10 Hour Battery Case for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. As the name suggests, it's a slim battery case for your iPhone that has up to 10 hours of additional power for your iPhone—2,200mAh in total. Through our friends at StackSocial, we're able to offer it for US$24.95 (it has a retail price of $80). You can control when the battery case is being used by turning it on or off, putting you in direct charge of your extra power. Plus, it's slim, meaning that people won't be asking you why you're carrying a watermelon in your pocket.
We've gathered 20 different Bitcoin "faucets"—websites that pay out free Bitcoins just for loading up a page full of ads—and tested them to make sure they actually pay out. We started off with eight sites, then eleven and 14, but this update adds six more and updates the descriptions for the original sites with additional information.
We have a deal for you today on a laser presentation device that is tiny and powered by your iPhone. Called iPin, It fits in the audio jack, and was designed to be clipped onto headphone cables for storage. The iPin is a wireless presentation controller that works with your presentation computer to allow you to control your presentation right from your iPhone. That's pretty clever, but when you add in the tiny size and the fact that you don't need to worry about batteries it's even more clever. Through our deal partners, you can get an iPin designed for iPhones without cases for $46.99. There's another version for $49.99 designed for use with a case.
Heading to Macworld/iWorld or SXSW this month? Then hop on board quickly with this Trade Show Survival Kit our deal folks have put together. First inside the kit is the AViiQ Portable Power Bank. This is capable of pushing out 2A of iPad-fueling power and has TWO USB ports, so you can charge two iPhones at the same time. I used this exact model on vacation last week and it rocks. Then, dig deeper in the box and find the Karma 4G HotSpot. This battery-powered hotspot delivers average speeds of 3-6Mbps and allows up to 8 devices to connect simultaneously. No contract, and just $14/GB when you need it. Check it out. Deal ends in three days, after which the price jumps from $99 to $159.

We have a dandy deal on a USB-to-Lightning iPhone/iPad charging cable for you today. It's an Apple-certified, 3.3 meter cable from Hipstreet for US$17.99. Compare that to Apple's 1 meter cable at $19 and its 2 meter cable for $29. If you're looking for a long Lightning cable, this is the best deal i've seen for a Made for iPhone-certified cable. This deal expires in two days.
