Moog Music has been known for producing some of the most popular synthesizers since the 70s— we reviewed a couple of the newer models in our Logic Pros series and noted that iPad/Mac synths still can’t quite capture the experience of even a $1,000 Moog. But today Moog is releasing its own iPad and iPhone version of its popular $10,000 Model 15, aiming to offer a similar experience in a $30 mobile app.
Moog’s own techs helped program the app at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC, according to the company, with the app both resembling the look and sound of the original 1970’s Model 15 hardware:
As someone that often carries around a portable battery or two when on-the-go for extended periods of time (because I don’t particularly like the added bulk of using a battery case), this new MagicMount product from Scosche looks very interesting.
A super slim magnetic pad goes on your phone, and the battery pack then magnetically attaches to it when needed and connects to your iPhone over a built-in Lightning connector or micro-USB for Android. That gives you the benefits of a battery case by having the portable battery attached to the device, but also allows you to easily remove it once you’ve added enough juice to your device.
TarDisk is offering 15% off exclusively to 9to5Toys readers today on itsTarDisk Pear solid-state expansion drive product for MacBook. This isn’t an SD card, instead it uses TarDisk’s software to create a fusion drive with your internal storage, meaning it will act as a permanent storage upgrade instead of like an SD card or thumb drive (full review).
With the 15% off, you can take $59.85 off the regular $399 price of the 256GB model, or $22.35 off the $149 regular price for the 128GB model.
Two of the best deals around for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Best Buy today beats its own previous $100 off deal with a new $125 off promo on its 32GB and 128GB 12.9-inch iPad Pro models in its mobile app.
T-Mobile is kicking off a new iPhone and iPad promotion tomorrow that will let you get 50% off up to $200 on a new iPad when you purchase any iPhone on one of T-Mobile’s installment plans.
AT&T has a new promo starting today that will let you get a free 48” Samsung Smart TV with the purchase of the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. The only catch is that you need to have both AT&T Next service for the phone and DirecT or U-Verse service and at least one of those accounts must be new.
If you’re planning on picking up an iPhone SE or an iPad Pro 9.7-inch, here’s a look at Best Buy’s launch promos. Deals include a $50 gift card with the iPhone SE, $300 off the LTE iPad Pro on Verizon, or $350 off both devices with activation on Verizon, as well as the usual trade-in offers. Here’s the rundown:
Pad & Quill’s Luxury Pocket Stand for Apple Watch made from American Cherry gets discounted to its lowest price yet: $64 shipped with code “LPS20”. That’s compared to its regular price of $79.95 direct from the company, on Amazon and elsewhere.

TomTom used to have a handful of paid apps, each specific to a region. The app covering just the U.S., for example, was $45. But today it’s making its premium navigation services free for iPhone users everywhere for the first 50 miles or 75km of use. The new freemium model comes as the company consolidates its TomTom apps for each region under a new, redesigned app simply called TomTom Go Mobile.

For LLC/small business owners, the end of the calendar year means you only have a week to purchase office supplies and other work expenses that can be written-off on your next tax return. From Wikipedia:
In income tax calculation, a write-off is the itemized deduction of an item’s value from a person’s taxable income. Thus, if a person in the United States has a taxable income of $50,000 per year, a $100 telephone for business use would lower the taxable income to $49,900. If that person is in a 25% tax bracket, the tax due would be lowered by $25. Thus the net cost of the telephone is $75 instead of $100.
That’s why we’re officially inventing Write-Off Week™ at 9to5Toys, one place to find the best deals on tech, office supplies, travel gear, and everything else you’ll need to keep your small – large business running over the next year.
If you’ve been considering new office chairs or desks, need to stock up on supplies, or perhaps want to deck out the office with the latest automation tech for the new year, we’ll be tracking the best products at the best prices until New Years Eve. Below we kick things off with a few picks to get you started… expand full story
