Woot founder’s new daily deal website ‘Meh’ officially opens its doors today

Matt Rutledge practically invented the concept of daily deal websites when he launched Woot back in 2004. Since then, the internet has become inundated with daily deal websites that transformed into nearly full on commerce websites. We track the best of these websites with our 9to5Toys Daily Deal Tracker tool and curate the best daily with our Daily Deal posts (today’s).

Meh is Rutledge’s new venture that he hopes will revive the glory days of daily deals:

Today is born a daily-deal site in the original mold. A daily-deal site that gets back to basics. A daily-deal site like you don’t see anymore: one that only sells a daily deal.

Rutledge’s vision for a daily deal website is one that simply offers one great deal a day and doesn’t expand its offerings with a swarm of mediocre deals that are hard to parse through. We wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment and it’s a big part of the reason 9to5Toys exists (to cut through the mediocrity and bring you the absolute best deals).

UE Boom Bluetooth speaker wins Gold at Design Excellence Awards, now $180 (Reg. $200)

DesignAward_CoverPhoto_revised

Today, Ultimate Ears has announced that its well regarded UE Boom Bluetooth speaker has won a 2014 Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (ISDA). Sitting atop the entertainment category, this marks the very first IDEA for Ultimate Ears as a brand but the fourth design award for the UE BOOM itself. The award is given out to excellence in product design, sustainability, packaging, concept and more. Today’s announcement points out that only 27 of the 2,000 entries received a Gold IDEA this year.

The popular Bluetooth speaker has also received great user reviews and has recently seen a $20 price drop on Amazon, Best Buy and the official UE site. While we have seen the unit for less, they rarely go on sale and not usually with all the color options available. Apple.com is still charging $199.95. Outside of pre-owned options and sketchy retailers, this is the current lowest price available.

The BOOM is designed to “change standard one-directional sound,” with a 360-degree experience that blasts sound out in every direction. It also features a 50 foot range to wirelessly change songs, adjust the volume and take phone calls. You’ll find 15 hours of battery life and the possibility of linking two of them together via the UE BOOM mobile app. For a complete rundown, head over to our review of the Logitech UE Boom and Mini Boom.

Silver and Bronze IDEA winners in the entertainment category included the NOOK Glow Light, Beats Studio Headphones, Jambox Mini and more. You can see the rest of this year’s winners on the official IDSA site.

Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner $249 shipped (orig. $300), more home automation

Update: The Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner has jumped to $279

Amazon offers the recently released Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner for $249 with free shipping, which is $51 below list, $30 better than its average selling price, and the best deal we have ever seen.

This GE-backed Quirky creation is a fresh take on one of the most unexciting appliances in your home:

Dumb window A/C units only give you two options: Leave the air on all day — while burning expensive electricity — or come home to nasty, stuffy summer heat. But not Aros; because Aros is smart.

Similar to the Nest Thermostat (on sale for $229), the Aros learns from your patterns (schedule, weather, budget) so it can be as efficient as possible. It can cool medium-sized rooms up to 350 square feet and fit windows from 24.5 to 40.5-inches.
