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?
In case you haven't heard, there's a currently a major legal battle being fought between Amazon.com and Hachette Book Group. While the battle wages on, Amazon is refusing to sell books by the popular publishing company. Apple isn't, however, and Re/code reports that the Cupertino company is even taking advantage of the situation by offering a sale on digital copies of Hachette titles.
In a sobering reminder of how quickly circumstances can change in the technology world, executives at BlackBerry today announced that they were putting the once-venerable smartphone maker up for sale. According to the Wall Street Journal, though, few companies are expected to take interest.
We may still be several weeks away from the official "back to school" season, but that isn't stopping Best Buy from getting into the action early. As reported by AllThingsD, the giant electronics retailer is scaling back the prices of its two bestselling MacBook Pro models by $200.
It's that time again. Well, maybe. Possibly. The annual Steam Summer Sale, the sales event for game enthusiasts who like their interactive adventurers served on Mac OS or Windows rather than consoles, could pop up as early as tomorrow. And if you've never checked it out, you should. For the span of about 10 days, the popular digital distribution platform knocks up to 95 percent off some of gaming's best titles, with prices far better than you'll find in used games outlets like GameStop.
Steam's Summer Sale is now underway! In the latest bi-annual killer game sale from Valve's Steam digital download service, the deals look hot and steamy, as per usual.

This year, it's a Summer Camp theme, including a prize booth where you can cash in tickets earned playing selected games for swag...kind of like ski ball on the New Jersey boardwalk, but with better swag.
Seems like every few weeks we're writing about a new iOS sale from Electronic Arts. Perhaps one of these days we'll stop writing about them, but only if they stop being so freakin' epic. EA has forty iOS apps on sale for up to 80% off.
The publisher of the long running Pac-Man series, Namco Bandai, has announced today that they are putting on a big sale across both the Android and iOS platforms that begins Friday, May 6 and runs through Monday, May 9. Most games in the sale are down to a mere 99 cents, while some iPad apps run as high as $2.99. We fully admit to not having heard of half the Apps listed, but there are some really great games listed as well.
You've probably never heard of Perfect Cell, but it's a very interesting game that's worth giving some attention. It's a game about an alien organism - which is described as neither bad, nor good...just perfect - that crash lands on Earth and is being held captive deep below the ocean. From there you need to use your creepy alien powers to break out of your prison. Maybe it's not quite as simple a concept as Angry Birds' "pigs-stole-my-eggs" plotline, but it's fun nonetheless.
