We've got some sweet deals for you on refurb Macs, which is a great way to go when you want to save a bundle but still get great hardware. And if you need headphones, earbuds, or cases, we've got a bit of that action for you as well. So let's start spending money to save money, shall we?
Rumors, we got hot and tasty fresh rumors stewing in the pot for you this week. So many leaks and speculation and unnamed sources. Some of them are probably right, but which ones? Ah, that's the trick. See if you can spot the plausible ones. (Photo by Apfel Page Concept Design.)
Apple's Lightning cable is pretty neat, aside from that whole rendering-all-our-previous-iOS-peripherals-useless thing. But that's not to say that there haven't been problems. Since its introduction with the iPhone 5, the cable has suffered from frequent reports of breaking and fraying, and now ZDNet's John O'Grady has noticed that it's prone to corrosion as well.
We've got deals all over the place today. Whether you want refurb cost savings or that fresh out of the box new smell, our Mac deals have got you covered. And we've hooked you up with deals that supercharge your older Apple TV and keep your wallet from wandering too far away. So let's dive right in, right now, and get a look at these deals.
Apple probably could have gotten away with shrugging its shoulders at the recent news that a Chinese woman died from an electrocution allegedly caused by a faulty knockoff iPhone charger, but today 9to5Mac reported that the Cupertino company is taking a far more nobler stance. Later this month, it'll allow customers to bring in their old USB power adapters and receive new, Apple-designed ones for a lower price via a "takeback program."
We're all the time showing you great deals on previously owned refurb models, but that doesn't mean we don't also find nice prices on brand spankin-new Apple gear too, as our Mac section will show. So if you like that new Mac smell, we've got it on tap for ya.
Well, right out of the gate, you have to know we have refurbs because that's a really easy way to pick up a Mac at a great discount. And since we know you're looking for bargains, we'll keep the refurbs right at $1,000 so you can figure out where that tax return is going. But that's not all. By all means, check out this week's awesome refurb deals, but stick around for some sweet for your iOS devices.
CES is the week's big news so hopefully all the new models mean price cuts coming our way on last year's everything. At least, that's how we roll when we're not early adopting. Meanwhile, as we all marvel at the latest and the greatest, here's some pretty great price cuts that will be sure to be a hit with your wallet.
Did you think we'd end out the year without one last deal go-around? Well, we can't say there's anything as crazy good as last week's super price chopped iPhone 5s, but this week does have its special treats. What are they, you ask? Well, go find out, why don'tcha?
Let’s be honest: the battery life of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S can kinda suck. Spyder’s PowerShadow i4 Battery Case & Charge/Sync Dock is designed to make it suck a whole lot less. Made out of black polycarbonate, the i4 boasts a built-in 2000mAh battery pack that, according to our testing, can charge a fully drained iPhone 4S to between 75 to 80 percent of its full capacity.
