Moto X (2nd gen) Pure Edition today only from Motorola $360 shipped (Reg. $500)

20140911T043506

Update: It looks like there’s also a $50 discount across the board for the Moto 360. You can grab the leather model with a 22mm band for $199 or make a custom one with a steel band for the usual $50 premium. There aren’t any details we could find on Motorola’s site for this deal, so there’s no telling how long it will last.

Motorola is offering a brand new unlocked “Pure Edition” Moto X via its online store at a new low of $359.99—for one day only. We are very fond of the phone, and found it to be one of the best—if not the best—Android flagships to be released in 2014. And one of its most attractive features is that you can design it however you’d like via the MotoMakerRead more

Home: Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream maker (refurb) $30 (Orig. $60), smart bulbs, kitchenware, more

Update (4/1 4:08pm):

BuyDig via eBay Daily Deals is offering the manufacturer refurbished Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker (ICE-21FR) for $29.95 shipped. That’s as much as $50 under some bloated listings, 50% under Amazon’s new price/the average selling price, and the best price we can find on a refurbished model.

It has a double insulated freezer bowl so there is no need for ice, a 1-1/2-quart capacity, and a paddle designed to produce ice creams and sorbets in “20 minutes or less.” It has been “repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition” as well as coming with a 90 day warranty from Cuisinart. It is the best selling ice cream maker on Amazon and has received a 4.6/5 star rating from over 1,600 customers.

Beam a 300-inch projection of your movies and games in 1080p w/ this $500 Acer projector (Reg. $800)

Acer-H6510BD-FHDNewegg via eBay Daily Deals offers the Acer H6510BD FHD for $499.99 with free shipping. As a pricing comparison, it carries a list price of $800, generally sells for around $600, and today’s deal represents the best price we’ve ever seen.

This unit will project a 45 to 300-inch screen of TV shows, Blu-rays, games, computer screens and anything else you can plug in via HDMI (2x), S-Video, Component, and more. It’ll work on ‘any surface’ thanks to Acer’s eColor Boost technology and wall-color compensation, but you’d obviously be better off with some sort of screen. Even this 100-inch budget option would be an upgrade over a naked wall. 89 Amazon reviewers rate it 4.6 out of 5 stars.

Pixelmator – the best photo editor for Mac – cuts its price in half to $15 (Reg. $30)

pixelmator-3-1-marble

If you’ve not had the pleasure of using Pixelmator for Mac OS X yet, today is a great chance to dive in. Its developers have cut the price in half to $14.99, which is the lowest that it has been this year. This app typically retails for $30, although it has been as much as $60 in the past.

Since the beginning, we’ve found Pixelmator to be an excellent alternative to other photo editing programs, such as Adobe Photoshop. Not only for its cost effective price but also for the powerful editing tools that make this the perfect software for hobbyist photographers and prosumers alike.

pixelmator-design

When I first decided to make the leap to using Pixelmator for my editing purposes, I was very impressed by the vast library of tutorials that are available for free online. Whether you are learning to crop and rotate images or go next level with re-touching and effects, Pixelmator has a step-by-step tutorial explaining the process. Unlike Photoshop, this software has a much less intimidating interface which invites users to explore instead of overwhelming with tools that are not easily differentiated from each other. Version 3.3 was released late last year with an updated look and feel to coincide with OS X Yosemite, integrating support for iCloud Drive and Handoff when using the iPad version of this software.
