The un-gift guide: Awesomely unique gifts and gadgets you won’t find on any other list
Gift Guides suck, and that's exactly why we made an un-gift guide...
Sam’s Club is one of several large retailers taking a stand and keeping its stores closed on Thanksgiving Day so its employees can spend time with their families. It’s a nice gesture that we’re sure is appreciated by Sam’s Club staff, and it might even give consumers some extra incentive to shop there this holiday season. The company’s Black Friday sale will begin early in the morning on Black Friday, November 27th, and you can check out all of the key details on Sam’s Club’s big Black Friday 2015 sale in our earlier post.
Of course, the fun doesn’t end there, and Sam’s Club on Wednesday announced details for its big Cyber Monday and Cyber Week sales. More →
I’ve lately been playing a lot of Fallout 4, a game that revolves around a character who gets cryogenically frozen and then wakes up 200 years later in a post-apocalyptic setting. That’s not quite what happened to an ex-convict named Otis Johnson but there are some parallels: Johnson just stepped back into the world for the first time after spending the last 44 years in prison for the attempted murder of a police officer. Recently Al Jazeera followed him around Times Square in New York and recorded his impressions of the world as it exists today. More →
Samsung’s financial fate is in part tied to the iPhone. The more smartphones Apple sells, the better for Samsung’s bottom line, as the Korean company’s most recent quarterly results have shown. Being an iPhone parts supplier is of utmost importance for Samsung, which is battling many companies to score lucrative contracts from Apple. And Samsung is apparently so determined to win more of Apple’s business that it’ll help its fierce rival further improve the product that’s currently beating its flagship Galaxy handsets in stores.

It’s 2015 and, as Marty McFly’s time traveling adventures predicted, it’s the year hoverboards become a thing. Only the devices we call hoverboards can’t really hover above the ground like the sci-fi skateboard from Back to the Future. Instead, they have Segway-like controls and they’re quite popular with people young and old right now.
But these highly-coveted devices, that not many U.S. retailers have in stores this Black Friday season, aren’t necessarily safe. That’s not only because there’s quite a learning curve for correctly piloting them, as these viral videos have shown us, but also because some of the cheaper models can actually explode.
Amazon’s big Black Friday deals are in full effect right now, so you don’t have to wait until the 27th to take advantage of them. In fact, some of the best deals you’ll come across this holiday season are live right now, and here’s a perfect example: from now all the way through December 5th, Amazon is offering discounts of up to 43% on four different Seagate external hard drive models. That’s big savings on drives with storage of between 1TB all the way up to 8TB.
It’s also important to note that all of these drives ship free with Amazon Prime, and you can get a free 30-day trial of Prime right here. More →
In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, certain hacker groups have declared a digital war on ISIS, with mixed results. But it looks like a hacker had been helping the FBI track and hunt down hackers with alleged ISIS ties even before the Paris attack in mid-November. A former member of the Rustle League hacker collective confessed on Twitter that he recently assisted the FBI, with his actions resulting in a bombing that left one prominent ISIS hacker dead. More →
It’s the day before Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean Walmart is taking a break from offering several new pre-Black Friday deals from its Daily Savings Center. You might not be as inclined to shop for deals 48 hours before the biggest shopping day of the year, but in case you just can’t wait, there are a few new deals worth checking out.
Today’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free comes just one day ahead of Thanksgiving, so you’ll have even more to be thankful for as you check out all your new apps tomorrow while the rest of your family devours a turkey. There are also a few freebies left in yesterday’s post if you hurry. More →
This year, many retailers started running Black Friday deals before Black Friday actually arrived. Some offer month-long access to discounted prices and others have week-long shopping events for customers. Most of them have attractive pre-Black Friday offers, some debuting early during the Black Friday week and others planned around Thanksgiving.
Target has a special event called Black Friday Early Access that gives shoppers access to a variety of products at Black Friday prices two days early. Now, the company has released an official 5-page ad that contains no less than 29-items that’ll be available for discounted prices in stores and online on Wednesday. More →
Have you ever seen something in a movie that just didn’t look quite right? If you’re in the theater, you just have to roll with the punches and move on to the next scene, but if you have a copy of the movie at home, you can take the time to rewind and see exactly what stuck out to you. Unfortunately, once you find a mistake, it’s nearly impossible to forget it’s there.
If you think Black Friday 2015 is still two days away, you haven’t been paying attention at all. November 27th isn’t Black Friday… not anymore. Black Friday is now a week-long sales event that offers consumers some of the best bargains of the year on everything from home goods to electronics to software to clothing and everything in between. This year, however, one category in particular seems to be a bit hotter than anything else, and that’s HDTVs.
Of course, you don’t have to wait until Friday to get killer deals on LED TVs large and small. More →
Sprint wants to reduce T-Mobile customers’ rates by 50%. T-Mobile, on the other hand, wants to just give Sprint customers $200. T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced on Twitter that T-Mobile is going to give Sprint customers $200 for every line they switch over to the “Un-carrier.” More →
