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.
When Netscape Navigator was released 20 years ago it ushered in the era of commercial Web browsers. Plenty have come and gone since then. What's your favorite? Let us know in today's TMO Forum Poll.
I've gathered 50 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. I started off with eight sites, but this update adds several more and removes some faucets that have gone dark for a total of 50 different Bitcoin faucets that really pay. I've also added Dogecoin and Litecoin faucets, reformatted the list, and updated all the descriptions.
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.

- 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
- Learn Mobile First Web Design Using Bootstrap

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.
