Save 30% on an AppleCare Protection Plan for your 13 or 15-inch MacBook

applecare-box

Even the biggest critics of warrantees generally agree that AppleCare for Macs is a worthwhile investment if you have the room in your budget. In fact, it consistently pummels competition in Consumer Reports’ yearly tech support survey.

applecare-mac
AppleCare for Macs extends the original 1-year hardware and 90-day phone support to 3-years. This is extremely valuable for Mac owners since these beautiful laptops are nearly impossible to repair for the average consumer and out-of-pocket repairs are extremely costly from Apple. Unfortunately, it does not cover accidental damage to your Mac, but one repair instance is likely to pay for the upfront cost of the plan.

Unlike iPhone and iPad AppleCare Protection Plans, it can be added to any Mac within 1-year of purchase. Each standalone AppleCare box will include a code that you can register online to your Mac’s serial number.

Here’s where to save 30% on AppleCare for 13 and 15-inch MacBooks, which is less than Apple’s .edu pricing: Read more

Nyko’s latest Power Pak doubles the battery life of a DualShock 4 controller

Nyko-PS4-Power Pak-03Gaming accessory maker Nyko has just launched its new PlayStation 4 Power Pak. The small, light weight add-on attaches to the back of a DualShock 4 to double the controller’s regular battery life.

It connects via the Micro USB connection along the top of the controller and uses two small pegs that lock into the screw holes on the back to hold it firmly in place. It features a pass-through USB port which allows for simultaneous charging of both the Power Pak and the controller with a single cable.

While it does appear that the Power Pak could both get in the way of comfortably holding the controller and could add some additional weight, Nyko seems to be pretty sure that’s not the case. The company’s director of marketing, Chris Arbogast, said “It’s lightweight and does not impede gameplay or ergonomics, enabling users to extend their gaming sessions.”
