1Password is arguably one of the best password management system around, and certainly one of our favorite. Today, it is on sale at the Mac App Store for $34.99. At regular $50, this is matching the best price we have seen on the Mac App Store and within $7 of a limited promo code deal from over 3 months ago. We haven’t seen it go for less on the Mac App Store in over a year.

However, those with access to a .edu email address can get the Mac app for even less. Over on the official AgileBits shop, 1Password for Mac is just $27.99 using a .edu email address during checkout. That’s matching our previous limited promo price and the best we have seen in over a year. Student and faculty members are eligible for the discounted rate and should checkout using a .edu email. If you don’t have a .edu email, you can checkout with your regular email but you should have an active student/faculty ID available in case you’re contacted by AgileBits

Keep in mind, you will get updates faster purchasing the app directly from Agile, but there is no iCloud syncing like the Mac App Store version. Agile’s purchase does support Dropbox for cross-platforming syncing though (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone).

Update (6/4 3:30pm): Apple has now officially selected 2Do as the new Free App of the Week.

The very popular 2Do task management universal iOS app has gone free for the first time since it was originally released over three years ago. It regularly goes for $15 and has not been under $9.99 in over a year. With 18,000+ reviewers rating it 4.5/5 stars since its release, this app is certainly worth a download.

2Do-apple-watch-support

2Do takes a “completely different approach” to task management. Its flat and clean interface removes any distractions so users can focus on the work at hand. Most notably, 2Do has been updated with Apple Watch support and works with many popular services like Dropbox, Apple’s Reminders and Siri. It has a companion Mac app that has received a 50% price drop, down to $24.99, coinciding with the iOS version going free.

expiredDropbox users can get an extra 100GB of OneDrive storage for free

Update (2/20 7:45am): We’ve confirmed that you can stack this deal with the Bing Rewards offer to get 200GB of OneDrive storage.

Dropbox users are eligible to get an additional 100GB of complimentary OneDrive storage for one year. New or existing OneDrive users simply have to sign-in to their account at this promotional page and link OneDrive with Dropbox. It’s a pretty painless way to grab an extra 100GB of storage.

No official word on if you can combo this with last week’s Bing Rewards promotion that gave OneDrive users an extra 100GB of storage for two years by joining Bing Rewards. If you have to choose only one, today’s promotion doesn’t require the extra sign-up, which is nice.

These tech essentials will not only help you survive college life, but maybe even help you land a spot on the Dean’s list (no promises). Even though the majority of our top picks are geared towards college students living in a dorm, we think they can help students of all ages.

All of the recommendations below have been shaped by my experiences while attending a four-year private University.

Entertainment

slinbox-m1

The fall is not only back to school season, but also home to the baseball playoffs and the start of the football season. MLB.TV is expensive and NFL Sunday Ticket is a hassle. We recommend a Sling Media Slingbox to keep tabs on your favorite sports teams while away from home. The all-new SlingBox M1 was just released and is the most affordable Slingbox ever at just $149.99.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may be the flashy options for dorm room gaming, but we recommend saving a few bucks and opting for an Xbox 360 or Wii U. The Xbox 360 has a huge back super-smash-bros-wii-ucatalog of awesome games that are now priced to move. Plus, some next-gen games (like Mortal Kombat X), will also be available on 360 and PS3. The Wii U has had a rough run, but party games like Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming Super Smash Brothers make it an excellent choice for dorm room hang sessions.

Skip Blu-ray and DVD. The players will take up prime TV stand real-estate and it’s a hassle to find the movie you’re looking for and then physically pop it in a player (I know, first world problems). Instead, go with a Roku 3/streaming stick or Apple TV to stream your media from Netflix (free trial), Hulu Plus (free trial), and iTunes.

spotify-premium-deal

It’s perfectly OK that listening to Norah Jones Spotify radio (student discount) helps you study, but don’t be that guy and play it out loud. A nice pair of headphones are key for school. If your budget allows it, then definitely upgrade to a set of noise-cancelling cans, like the Bose QC15, to drown out any background noise. Bust out a larger portable Bluetooth speaker like the Logitech UE BOOM (review) or Jawbone’s Big JAMBOX (review) when it’s time to party.

While it’s always a good idea to back up those important files you have polluting your once perfectly tidy desktop, there’s no better way to celebrate World Backup Day 2014 than with a fresh copy of all your most cherished content to your favorite storage medium.

According to WorldBackupDay.com, 30% of people have never backed up their files before, so we’re here to give you a break down of some solid storage options. Most people take a three tiered approach to back ups with local storage or NAS, external hard drives and online cloud backups just to be safe. While both Dropbox and Google Drive are great options that offer free storage, you can always find out which online cloud option suits you best with 9to5Mac’s “Online backup services: why, how & which?” guide. Apple’s Time Capsule is a nice secondary possibility and we’ve rounded-up some current discounts on Network Attached Storage bays as well as some dependable portable drives you can check out below:

Amazon is hardly the first Cloud Storage provider to throw their hat in the special offer arena, in fact it seems like the cool thing to do these days. With that in mind, it’s worth noting that Amazon is throwing its hat into the proverbial free cloud storage offer with 50GB of storage with the purchase of over 100 carrier-branded Android smartphones.
