Free Target gift cards w/ the purchase of select Apple products: iPad Air, Apple TV, iPhone 5s, more

The cover of Target’s weekly ad puts the spotlight squarely on Apple. This week only, you can get a free Target gift card worth $20-$100 with the purchase of select Apple products. We’ve featured better deals for all of these products in the past, but if you need one of these products now then Target’s deals are certainly better than paying full retail.

Target’s offer of a free $100 gift card with the purchase of an iPad Air is the best deal of the bunch. However, there’s a really good chance we could see an updated model released at Apple’s rumored October 16th event. If Apple does release a new iPad Air model, it will most likely be priced at $500 and it most certainly won’t include a free gift card. Reports from 9to5Mac have so far pointed towards the new iPad Air only being a slight upgrade over the current model:

…the iPad update is expected to be minor — likely adding a gold option, Touch ID and an anti-reflective coating on the screen.

That said, here are the deals: Read more

Native Instruments’ iMaschine now available for free on iOS (Reg. $5)

iMaschine-sale-free-04

The Native Instruments line of Maschine beat production products marry hardware controllers with rich software instruments, loops and effects to create an all-in-one music making suite. The hardware controllers range from the $349 Maschine Mikro up to the $999 Studio model, but Native Instruments also makes a stripped down, yet still very powerful version of its Maschine platform for iOS. Regularly priced at $4.99, iMaschine for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is available as a free download inside of the (also free) Apple Store iPhone/iPod touch app.

Simply download the free Apple Store app and boot it up. Hit the “Store” tab along the bottom and scroll all the way down to the iMaschine icon, then tap on download now for free.

While you certainly won’t find all of the features in iMaschine you’ll have at your disposal in its full fledged counterparts, we are still talking about a very wide range of possibilities here. There are 16 pads for rhythm programming, as well as a keyboard for melodic parts and sampling possibilities from your device’s mic or your iTunes library. It supports the purchase of additional sound packs via in-app purchases much the same as the Maschine hardware, but it does come packed with 100MB of content including 10 projects, 25 kits, and over 400 samples.

You’ll find more features along with quick demo video of musician Jamie Lidell putting this thing to the test below:
