I have an extremely cool device for today's deal. It's called the PowerCube, a very clever way to maximize your power outlets. As the name suggests, it's a cube, which has six sides. One of those sides has a male plug for your wall. Four of the sides each have a female plugs, while the outside sixth face has two USB ports for dual charging. It's a very efficient way of turning one plug into four, with two USB ports to spare—all with a very small footprint. You can get the PowerCube for just $17.95 through our deal, so snap it up!
Need access to otherwise restricted web content? Don’t trust your WiFi connection? Need to ensure online security? You want to consider a virtual private network (VPN), and boom! We just happen to have a deal for three years of VPN Unlimited's Premium Plan for $19. With this package, your Internet data is encrypted between the VPN and you, greatly limiting your exposure to hackers, and for those who live in countries that block access, it can be the only way to get to some sites. There's a lot more information on our deal site.
I've gathered 52 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 bumps that list to 51 different Bitcoin faucets that really pay.
If you live in a multi-platform house, we have a deal for you on a 6-foot charging cable that's convertible between microUSB (for Android devices) and Lightning (for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch). Better yet, the converter is actually attached to the cable, eliminating the chance to lose it! That's clever, and I like clever. It retails for $40, but you can get it through our deal for $21.
80 hours of video training and 24 in-depth courses. This is a massive bundle of iOS 8 developer training courses for Apple's new Swift language. Bought separately, the retail price is US$2,956, but through our deal you can get the whole shebang for $99. Boom! Over the course of the training, you'll build 70 different apps, watch more than 1,000 videos, learn how to upload to the App Store, and learn fundamentals on app design itself. This would make a great gift for someone in your life who wants to learn how to program, too.
I am pleased as punch to announce our Apple Watch giveaway with our friends at Stack Social! It's straight forward—register to receive deal notifications from TMO, and you'll be entered into a drawing for an Apple Watch. You can get additional entries by getting your friends to register, too. Check out the rules for the details—the winner will be drawn on February 17th, 2015—likely before Apple actually released the Apple Watch. So enter! And good luck.
This deal has proven to be quite popular: it's lifetime access to more than 5,000 hours of video tutorials for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Lightroom, Premier, all of Adobe's powerful applications. Learning how to use them, let alone learning how to make the most of them, comes with a steep learning curve, and Adobe likes to rewrite its own UI rules with each new version. Thanks to our friends at StackSocial, you can get lifetime access to more than 5,00 Adobe-Authorized training videos for just $79. That level of pass is usually $500, so if you're looking for the training, get on it.
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.
