Every so often, our deal-diggers turn away from desktops and laptops to focus on something almost as powerful but far more portable: iPad and iPad mini. If you have a tablet need and not a lot of cash, there are plenty of options this week; we can take you all the way back to the second generation for some serious discounts. Want to load up an iPad with movies for long trips? We've got your ticket. Plus: Cords, cases, styluses, and more in this week's deal-o-rama!
We've got a little something for the shutterbugs out there who want to do some tricks with their iPhone cameras, but we've also got games for a wide variety of interests this week.

And finally, you can answer the question: how long can you go without moving your phone? All that and more inside.
