We have a training bundle for back end developers today, and you get to name your own price. It works like this: pay what you want—say a penny—and you get two training courses. There are Python, Ruby, and PHP training courses in the package. But if you pay more than the average, you get all eight courses, and as of this writing, the average price is just $7.86. Plus, 10 percent of what you pay goes to one of three charities—you choose. Get to it!
We're giving away an iMac with our friends at Stack Social. All you have to do is register to receive our deals through email, and you'll be included in the drawing for a 21.5-inch 1.4GHz iMac. It's kind of a no-brainer, so get on it.

Check out the SKEYE Nano Drone, a quadcopter drone that measures just 4 centimeters on a side. That's small enough to land on your thumb. It has three flight modes, one for beginners who are just learning to fly, another for more advanced pilots, and a third, ‘expert’ mode for seasoned flight veterans. The company that makes it says it will fly outdoors, but I personally imagine it's far better suited for indoor flight because of its size. At $34.99 through our deal (regularly $60), it's an inexpensive way to find out how much fun flying a quadcopter is. There's a video of the device in action on the deal listing.
Distraction-free typing. It's the holy grail of writing for many folks, and we have a deal for you today that can help you find it. There's a Mac app called Typed whose raison d'être is providing a distraction-free environment for you. To hit that goal, Typed focuses on a set of essential writing tools. It also can export to HTML (no HTML coding needed), will auto-save, has a word-count tool, and a feature called Zen Mode 8 that plays calming soundtracks for you. Typed retails for $25, but through our deal you can get it for $14.99.
Finally, an RC plane you control with your iPhone. Actually, you can use an iPod touch, iPad, and some Android devices, too, but you get my point. It's called the SmartPlane, and it will fly for 30 minutes on a single charge. There's more information on SmartPlane and a video giving you a look at how it works. Through our deal, it's $59.99. Have fun!

The Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker. It's a speaker that's a globe and it levitates. It floats in mid-air while it plays music or acts as your speaker phone, or whatever. Magnets are frakking cool. Check out the video in the deal listing to see it in action. It connects to an audio source via Bluetooth, plus it levitates. Drop in Luke Skywalker with a helmet over this eyes, and you can have yourself a proper SciFi shindig. The Om/One Levitating Bluetooth Speaker ships in January for $199. Stack Social has it on preorder for $179.99.
