We went through even more daily deals than usual to assemble today’s list — probably about 1,000 in total. Sure that sounds crazy to you, but to us it’s totally worth it because it means sifting through the so-so bargains and finding our readers some of the best daily deals on Amazon’s site. Included in today’s batch are a tiny $9 gadget that will double your iPhone’s battery life, a futuristic alarm clock that glows and changes color, a discount on unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phablets, the hottest smart watch you’ve ever seen, a handful of iPhone 6/6s cases, and beef jerky. No, serious. Beef jerky. More →
Porsche’s plan to take on Tesla is about to kick into high-gear. A new report from Autoblog claims that the German-based automaker is ramping up its hiring by more than 50% in order to get its highly intriguing Mission E EV concept into production and on the road by 2020.
As it stands today, Porsche’s Mission E team currently boasts about 1,000 members. Looking ahead, Porsche is aiming to add 400 more people to the team in order to accelerate its development and production effort. What’s more, the report claims that Porsche “is also looking for roughly 100 IT specialists, 50 creatives and 70 more apprentices…”
What’s the maximum level that can be reached in Pokemon Go, you ask? Apparently it’s 40, as one Pokemon Go player discovered. But he cheated his way there, so it might take you a tiny bit longer to reach the milestone. More →
GoPro is single-handedly responsible for the boom in the action camera market, but it’s definitely not the only game in town anymore. Other companies have swooped in to launch some fantastic alternatives and we recently got to test one out when YI sent us a YI 4K Action Camera with Selfie Stick & Bluetooth Remote to try. This action camera is ultra-compact and yet it captures 4K Ultra HD footage that is absolutely gorgeous. And perhaps best of all, it costs about $80 less than GoPro’s most popular camera, which can only record at resolutions up to 1080p. More →
Remember the ice bucket challenge stunt that went viral almost two years ago? It turns out it was more than a gimmick, as it helped not only spread out awareness about ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), but also provide key funding that allowed researchers to discover one of the genes involved in the disease.

“[A] common belief is that phone performance can only be improved in two ways, either using a faster processor or increasing the RAM.”
You may think that’s a quote from Apple, perhaps the introduction of an explanation of why the iPhone regularly bests Android flagships in performance despite having specs that never seem to measure up on paper. But you’d be wrong. That’s how Samsung starts a new video intended to explain that mid-range devices can be very powerful without sporting high-end specs. This only begs the question: If Samsung can pull off amazing performance without bumping up processor speed or adding more RAM, why does it keep doing that with every new Galaxy S and Galaxy Note model it launches?

Although Batman v Superman stole the negative spotlight this summer, comic book fans weren’t all that enthused with X-Men: Apocalypse either. That’s not to say that critics and fans alike didn’t have anything nice to say about the movie, but it certainly wasn’t the critical reaction 20th Century Fox was hoping for.
So what could the studio have done to fix the highly anticipated sequel?

Future Galactic President Trump is currently hosting an Ask Me Anything on Reddit. Once the preserve of celebrities trying to schill their new movie, Reddit AMAs are seemingly a rite of passage for internet-concious public figures, with President Obama famously using the site to help get re-elected.
This AMA is promising to go a little differently, though. It’s being hosted on /r/The_Donald, a rabidly pro-Trump subreddit that doesn’t really allow dissent of the great and glorious leader.
An event that reportedly happens an average of 23 times annually has been caught on camera in a dramatic video: lighting zapping the Empire State Building.
The short clip— aptly titled “Boom!”– has racked up over 1.2 million views on YouTube since it was first uploaded on Monday. After six or so seconds, the video shows a jagged line of lightning striking the iconic structure. “I got that,” a voice says, just as thunder rolls.
You probably don’t even remember at this point, but Google completely changed the game when it introduced free unlimited voice-guided navigation on smartphones. Gone were the days of dedicated devices that required you to pay for map updates and then pay even more for live traffic info. Of course, smartphone navigation often isn’t a perfect solution either — you can burn through your data plan and your battery life as well. Thankfully, the popularity of smartphone navigation apps has caused prices of dedicated navigators to plummet.
Take this current Amazon sale, for example. From now until the end of the day on Saturday, July 30, you can get a TomTom VIA 1535TM 5-Inch Bluetooth GPS Navigator with Lifetime Traffic & Maps and Voice Recognition for just $90 shipped. More →
