We’ve already rounded up a nice batch of MFi Apple-certified Lightning Cables and iPhone accessories. One of the best add-ons to any iPad is a folio case or Bluetooth Keyboard.

Today’s the day. DiscountMags has now launched its Black Friday Magazine Blowout sale. We are seeing rock-bottom prices extended to a massive list of more than 200 titles including Wired, Popular Science, Men’s Health, GQ, ESPN, Dwell, and way too many to mention here. Head below for all the details and how to grab the best prices of the year: expand full story
While you can pick up last year’s Nexus 6 64GB at a ridiculously low price ($260) on Amazon today, Google’s official online store has some discounts of its own to offer for Black Friday. Perhaps most attractive is the $80 price cut on one of this year’s newest Nexus phones.
You can now buy the 32GB Nexus 5X for just $349 (down from $429), while the 16GB version is $299. At time of writing, all color options are in stock, but the discount only applies while inventory is there. While it’s not the biggest discount we’ve ever seen, it’s still very generous given how new the Nexus 5X is. Google only announced the product last month, and it’s one of the only available phones to support Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
While stocks last, you can also snag the Nexus 9 at a discount. The tablet is down to just $199 for the 16GB version and $279 for the 32GB model, cutting the price down by a hefty $200. As things stand (at least until the Pixel C is available), the Nexus 9 is currently one of the only tablets available offering a pure Android experience. Multiple manufacturers have Android tablets on the market, but most come with a boat-load of bloatware. For $199 I’d argue you can’t get a better Android tablet if you value performance and software purity. expand full story

On a daily basis this unit protects your electronics from dangerous power surges and spikes. Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars from 129 Amazon reviewers.
