13″ Retina MacBook Pro 2.8GHz/8GB/512GB (late 2013) $1,449 shipped (orig. $1,999)

Apple-MBP-Retina-sale-01B&H offers the late 2013 Apple 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display 2.8GHz/8GB/512GB (model ME867LL/A) for $1,449 with free next day delivery.

As a pricing comparison, Apple is currently selling a similarly spec’d refurbished model (with a slower processor) for only $40 less. Its original list price was $1,999. It’s tough to nail down other price checks on this model because it was technically a custom machine. It’s the same as the ME866LL/A but upgraded to an i7 2.8GHz processor.

R.B.I. Baseball 14 for iOS hits its all-time low ahead of Christmas: $1 (Reg. $5)

rbi-baseball-ios

MLB Advanced has dropped R.B.I Baseball 14 for iOS to its all-time lowest price of $0.99, making it a perfect time to slide this game into your home screen ahead of Christmas. Previously, the lowest we had seen on R.B.I. was for $1 more back in October, so we’d recommend grabbing it now.

R.B.I. Baseball features all 30 Major League Baseball teams, as well as 480 current ball players. Gameplay is designed around the fun, arcade action of the original, but with iOS in mind from the ground up. You can play a full nine inning game in 20 minutes, plus regular and post-season modes.

Infinity Blade III now available for just $1 (Reg. $7)

ChAIR Entertainment has dropped the latest entry in its popular sword-fighting action game, Infinity Blade III, down to just $1 for the holidays. Typically listed at $6.99, this is the lowest we have seen the game go for by $2. At $10 for the entire Trilogy, today’s deal is still a better value than the previous Black Friday bundle by more than $2.

Widely regarded as some of the best mobile games out there, the Infinity Blade series brings together “adrenaline-fueled” action with some of the best visuals on the platform. As the epic conclusion for the three part series, IB3 introduces a new playable character as well as a more fine tuned experience overall within a much larger, dynamic 3D world. Along with voice work from famous actor Troy Baker (BioShock, The Last of Us, Far Cry 4, COD: Advanced Warfare, Batman Arkham, many more), it has the “most detailed story scenes ever shown” on mobile platforms:

Siris and Isa have joined with the God-King Raidriar in a desperate attempt to destroy the Worker of Secrets and his army of Deathless titans. Uncover new mysteries to wield the power of the Infinity Blade in this timeless adventure of champions and villains.

Dan’s Gift Guide: low cost tech accessories you may have overlooked

9to5toys-dan-gift-guide-2014

My favorite gift picks for this year include a couple smaller items that’ll complement your Apple setup, one to help you cut the cord and one to make you fall deeper into Apple fandom. Only one of my picks is priced just slightly north of $50, so any of them should be good for Secret Santa or stuffing some stockings.

Rather than pointing out this year’s obvious tech gift wins, I’ve gone with a handful of items that you probably overlooked and were most likely omitted from other gift guides you’ve read so far this year… Read more
