IEletrica (100% positive feedback, Top-Rated Plus Seller) via eBay Daily Deals offers the LG 55-inch 4K Curved OLED 3D HDR Smart Ultra HDTV (model OLED55C6P) for $1,449 shipped. That’s good for over $1,000 off the original MSRP, down $550 from Best Buy, $50 less than our previous mention and the lowest currently available from a trusted seller.

This Ultra HDTV does it all, thanks to three HDMI inputs and LG’s webOS 3.0 software. The curved display also supports HDR and 3D content. I recently invested in an OLED TV from LG, and I have to say that it lives up to the hype. It does an excellent job with fast moving content like sports and the black levels truly are spectacular. Best Buy customers agree with over 300 leaving a 4.8/5 star rating.

I’m a big believer in mechanical keyboards. Das Key’s Mac model is my daily driver, there’s just something about that clickity-clack that makes you feel productive. Many typewriter enthustiasts feel the same way, but have struggled to find an alternative on modern day computers. Let alone a wireless option. The new Lofree Keyboard looks to answer all of these questions with its throwback looks and cord-free design.

Called “the first mechanical keyboard inspired by typewriters”, Lofree has engineered round keycaps with an Apple-friendly layout. In fact, it works with Mac, PC, iOS and Android with the ability to pair up with three devices at once. Additionally, each key is backlit for use on-the-go or in dimmer environments. The Lofree Wireless Mechanical Keyboard is slated to ship in multiple colors in the coming weeks, final pricing has yet to be announced.

There’s no denying the success of Raspberry Pi and its affordable DIY motherboards. Through multiple iterations, this project remains notable in the world of homebrewing and, more recently, kid-focused coding kits. ASUS is hoping to cash in on this trend (albeit a bit late to the party) with its new Tinker Board. Coming in at nearly an identical size as the Pi 3, it features a quad-core Rockchip processor, four USB ports, 802.11n Wi-Fi and a gigabit ethernet jack.

The Tinkerboard has a couple of notable specs, including 2GB of RAM and 4K video output. Both of which go above and beyond the typical list of features on these DIY boards. That, of course, will come at a price. ASUS has listed its latest creation at £55 across the pond, which transfers to around $70 in the US. It certainly has a long way to go to catch up to Rasperry Pi’s name recognition but the upgraded specs should help along the way.

It’s been a long journey for the Dash button, Amazon’s physical one-press ordering system, since it was announced nearly two years ago. But with the advent, ease-of-use and success of its Echo lineup, some have wondered what the future holds for this add-on. Today, Amazon revealed new digital Dash buttons that reside on a virtual shelf for quick re-ordering of your favorite items. Of course, you’ll have access to all of the brands already associated with this service.

Unlike the physical buttons that cost $4.99 per unit, the digital alternative is free. This could potentially be the beginning of the end for Amazon’s at-home buttons. There have always been a number of pitfalls along the road to success for Dash, most notably consumer’s dependance and access to smartphone devices. Simply put, it’s easier to access the Amazon app on your phone or offer a command to Alexa than ordering and setting up one of these buttons. Digital Dash is available today and can be setup by visiting this page.
