The Thunderstorm is a full-range speaker system with a protective casing with various angles for a great entertainment experience.

We found it to be perfect for iPad users who frequently game or watch videos during our review:

I’ve tried many Bluetooth speakers from Logitech, Jawbone, NYNE, JBL and more, and I can honestly say none quite compare to Thunderstorm when it comes to a rich, immersive sound experience for watching video on an iPad. Its a unique experience with Thunderstorm, fine tuned specifically for the movie watching experience, and it’s definitely worth your attention if much of your time with an iPad is spent watching video.

Amazon reviewers rate it 4.1 out of 5 stars.

With the money you saved on the Thunderstorm you could pick up the Case Logic 11.6-Inch Laptop and iPad Slim Case on sale for only $13.99 from Amazon.

Multi-year magazine subs from $4/yr: Maxim, Wired, GQ, Rolling Stone, Men’s Health, ESPN, many more

This weekend’s DiscountMags sale has got off to an early start once again, offering some of the lowest prices we’ve seen. It is a multi year sale, so while there are a number of one year discounts matching our usual lows, there are deep discounts to be had on 2 and 3 year subscriptions.

A three year sub to Wired with digital access and free delivery comes to $12.99. At around $4.33 a year, this is the lowest price available and matching the lowest multi year deal we have ever seen. There are a number of other popular mags at $13 for 3 years including GQ with digital, Rolling Stone, Popular Science and more, all of which are matching the lowest prices we’ve seen for multi year deals and beating our usual exclusive per year pricing.

Some other notable deals available include Dwell which drops to $4 a year with a  2 year subscription ($1 under our usual per year pricing), Bloomberg Businessweek is $25 for three years (the best price we’ve seen outside of a special sales with limited availability) and ESPN is $4 per year for a two year sub (the best direct dollar discount we’ve seen).

Expect no sales tax, no auto renewals and free delivery across the board for those in the US.

Best iPhone 6/6 Plus plan in US? T-Mobile unlimited Text and Data, 100 minutes talk: $30/month

T-mobile Promo

Hidden about 2/3rds the way down the T-Mobile pre-paid plans list is a great little gem of a plan for any unlocked phone but it is particularly nice for the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones if you buy them off contract. For $30 month, T-Mobile will give you unlimited 4G/LTE Data (capped at 5Gb where you will then go on EDGE) plus 100 minutes of talk time. That’s far below any other plan including T-Mobile’s advertized plans above it.

T-Mobile doesn’t have the best service area but where it does have coverage its LTE is fast. The carrier also lets you make free SMSes/voicemails from planes, has extremely reasonable international rates including free texts and perhaps most importantly has Wifi calling so you can make calls over Wifi in your basement. With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus you even get wifi to cell tower handoff capabilities.

T-Mobile will even give you a $200 ASUS Router for a refundable deposit of $25 that will improve voice quality over Wifi but you can use it for Wifi around your home.

The downsides are important to consider.

  1. Those 100 talk minutes can go quick and T-Mobile will charge you (a fair price) if you go over.
  2. You have to pay for the iPhone up front. The iPhone 6 is $650 and iPhone 6 Plus is $750 to start. That can be painful
  3. T-Mobile’s coverage range is limited especially compared to Verizon and AT&T. While it is sometimes fixed by the carrier’s willingness to let you make calls over Wifi, you will still find absolutely no coverage in many small towns in the US.  You won’t get roaming data but you will still be able to make calls while roaming in US.
  4. This is a web/Walmart only plan so it won’t work in T-Mobile Stores and as such, support is very limited.

However, I’ve had this plan for about a year now and it is great.

Belkin’s WeMo lineup now includes $30 smart LED bulbs

belkin-wemo-LED-light-starter-kit

WeMo bulbs easily install by screwing into existing lighting fixtures, but that’s not even the best part… Read more
