madden-nfl-15-xbox-one

Microsoft announced today that they will be offering a new Xbox One bundle at the end of August centered around the popular Madden NFL gaming series.

The bundle will include an Xbox One without Kinect, a controller, headset and download code for Madden NFL 15. Thats the same price the Kinectless console currently sells for by itself.

NAS gear: Synology DS213j $188 (Reg. $230), Western Digital Red 3.5-inch HDD: 3TB $115, 4TB $149

Update (8/13 7:30am): 3TB WD Red 3.5-inch HDD for $114.99 shipped (Reg. $150) w/ coupon code EXLPBWG234 at Newegg.

Update (8/6 10:30am): 3TB WD Red 3.5-inch HDD for $114.99 shipped (Reg. $150) w/ coupon code EMCPBPD222 at Newegg.

It’s no secret that we are big fans of Synology NAS boxes. In fact, Jordan even wrote a piece about how he believes every Mac and iOS user should have a DiskStation. But at the end of the day its performance and reliability hinges on the drives it’s running. That’s why we recommend using Western Digital’s NAS-optimized Red hard drives. They’re more costly than your average desktop hard drive, but they’re also built to meet the demands of a 24/7 server.

Right now, Adorama (authorized dealer) via eBay Daily Deals has the 4TB Western Digital Red drives for $149 each with free shipping. Outside of a brief sale a couple months ago, this is the best price we have ever seen for the 4TB model. It carriers a list price of $200 and is currently available for $173 on Amazon. If you still haven’t picked up a Synology box yet, then we recommend the 2-bay DS213j that is on sale for $187.99 shipped.

Amazon launches a new custom 3D printing storefront

Amazon 3D Printer Store 02Amazon has launched a new custom 3D Printing Store. While the online retail giant has sold a number of affordable 3D printers for some time now, the new storefront offers a selection of customizable 3D printed items to choose from including phone cases, wallets, home decor items, toys, jewelry, bobble-heads and more.

The amount of customization available varies depending on the item. You’ll see everything from basic color selections to deeper choices like size and texture options as well as custom text and item specific tweaks.

While there are some stock goods that don’t have any customization available, on items like the $30 Bobble-head dolls from Mixee Labs, Amazon has provided a mini editor with everything from hair, eye and face selections as well as outfits with custom text and more. With something like the $60 custom 3D printed cuff links, buyers can choose any 3 letter monogram, the color and material as well as the shape.

We have seen more home 3D printers approaching affordable prices like the upcoming New Matter MOD-t (which is currently up for preorder at $249), but the new 3D Printer Store offers a nice option for those who haven’t dived into the 3D printer space yet. Most of the highly rated and best selling home 3D printers will still run you anywhere from $499 to over $1000.
