UPDATE: coupon BFSAVE40 (40% off) works on apps and that includes VPNs!

Stacksocial too is joining in the early Black Friday festivities by offering the Ivacy VPN: Lifetime Subscription + NAT Firewall for $24 after coupon code BFSAVE40. Both the VPN and the Firewall come with a lifetime subscription. The VPN allows login to the service of up to five devices simultaneously and promises no-logging. IT supports not just Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android and iOS, but also Roku, Kodi, Kindle, gaming boxes, etc. It has serves all around the world and it is based in Singapore. The free included Ivancy firewall is an add-on to the Ivancy VPN.

PS: speaking of security matters, there is a widespread recall of Romaine Lettuce. Which verifies my risk assessment of this green water: the risks of eating it are higher than its nutritional value 😉

Pre-order new iPad PRO, Macbook AIR, Mac Mini

The biggest news of yesterday’s 2018 Apple event taking place in Tim Cook’s new favorite city is that *gasp* the beloved iPad Mini 4 continues to be in the line-up as an active and “latest” model 🙂

On a more serious note, Apple revealed a handful of new products, a total of over 90 SKUs (when colors, storage, etc options are factored in). The new products include a promising upgrade of the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad PROs with USB-C [good thing I stopped buying accessories at 30-PIN ;-)] with prices starting at $800 for the 11-inch model and $1000 for the 12.9-inch and go as high as $1900.

Also arriving is the highly anticipated Retina MacBook Air with prices starting at $1200 and going up to $2600. All these come with on-board SSD ranging from 128GB to 1.5TB and either 8 or 16GB of RAM.

Last but not least, the most numerous of the new products with over 50 SKUs is the new MacBook Mini with prices ranging from $800 to $4100.

So if one wants to buy one of each, at the entry-point model, that’s $2800. On the other hand, if you want to buy the flagship of each product, that’s $8600. Still less than a decent used CR darling Honda Accord 🙂

Tuesday: partial Woot-OFF

Woot is having a partial Woot-OFF with three of their sub-Woots participating. Of camera/tech interest is the Clearance Woot-OFF, that’s the artist formerly known as Sellout. The other two participating sub-Woots are Gourmet and Shirts, so a good opportunity to pick up some creative shirts, especially if you are a Prime member since you get free shipping on Shirts [they are fairly lightweight and can be rolled up to burrito size, so they are easy and cheap to ship; thus the free Prime shipping benefit]…

Meanwhile it is Ninja day at the Amazon Gold Box where a trio of their household appliances are on sale, headlined by the $100 Coffee Bar Auto-IQ. If you don’t like coffee, you can use it as a lighting set-up challenge 🙂

Wednesday Reading is Fundamental with $95 recertified Kindle Voyage

Reading is fundamental on 10/10/18 at the Amazon USA store. If you read a lot of ebooks of the text-only and text-mostly variety, nothing beats a dedicated e-reader. And if you are part of the Amazon-Kindle ecosystem, good until 3am ET on Thursday, the headliner of the Gold Box deals of the day is the certified refurbished Kindle Voyage with the same full 1-year warranty as the new condition model. This goes for $95 as the Wifi-only model and $112 for the Wifi with free 3G data option… Limit up to three per customer at the sale price…

This is a great choice as it has a built-in light and both a touchscreen and physical page turn options on both sides of the bezel [the Paperwhite does not have the bezel physical page turn option]. I recently switched to this, the refurbished Voyage, after many years on the refurbished Paperwhite. I use a mix of the physical page turn and the touchscreen. I don’t even realize I’m switching pages with this, either way happens organically…

Both certified refurbished Kindles I bought looked as if they were brand new, in both appearance and packaging. Note that these are great for text-only and mostly-text but not ideal for photography or engineering or scientific reading that has plenty of graphs and tables and diagrams and such…

If you have or plan to get this and don’t want to pay the big bucks for the official Amazon covers, I’ve had good luck with various Moko cases for Kindles and other devices…

PS: meanwhile among the other Gold Box deals du jour, if you purchase the 512GB Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for the flagship price of $1250 (factory unlocked, USA warranty, no carrier crapola), you will also receive automatically for FREE the Samsung S3 Frontier Smartwatch. This is a pre-created bundle, just add to cart and proceed to checkout…

Sprint Kickstarter Plan offers $15/month lines with Unlimited Data (with limitations) with New or Ported phone numbers

If you like unlimited data that is speed-limited, and you have phones that are compatible with the Sprint network, AND you are willing to start new lines and/or port existing phone numbers, Sprint has a pretty good deal, it’s the $15 per month Kickstarter promotion running until 6/14/18. This can be handy if you do a lot of smartphone photography out and about and want to instantly backup your photos to the cloud…

This offer is available online. You can buy a phone new or pre-owned from the Sprint website, or for a potentially better value, Bring your own phone, especially if you already own those phones or can get them for good prices used or refurbished. A growing number of phones are “all carrier” in the US market, including the bang-for-the-buck Motorola Moto G series, the Essential Phone, not just the iPhone, Galaxy and Pixel/Nexus flagships and the LG V30S. The aforelinked page has a detailed list of eligible phones under the “How do I know if my device is eligible” FAQ, or you can enter the IMEI in the box over there.

As usual, check the details, terms and conditions of the offer over there! Depending on which carrier(s) you have now, they may be doing some things different, so don’t assume it will be the same as your current carrier.

The data speed limits on the $15/month plans are as follows:
+ up to 480p video streaming
+ up to 500 Kbps in music streaming
+ up to 2 mbps in gaming streaming
+ excessive data use leads to deprioritation as with the regular Sprint plans
+ hotspot feature NOT available

Offers like this are a good reason to go for an “all carrier” phone that is carrier-unlocked. It gives you the ultimate flexibility. And it cuts down the number of options if you are dealing with “information overload” in trying to decide “which phone(s) to buy next” 🙂

Motorola Moto G6 down to $235 [Prime only]

For Prime members, Amazon itself is offering the new condition Motorola Moto G6 smartphone for $235 with free shipping with a limit of one per customer. The black color scheme is in-stock and shipping. This is the Prime-exclusive edition that comes with pre-installed Amazon apps, but Amazon no longer has the Amazon Lockscreen and Ads. They ended that program a few weeks ago.

If you are not a Prime member or don’t want pre-installed Amazon apps, you can get it for $250 by Motorola Mobility through Amazon, but it is not Prime-shipping eligible.

Needless to say there are many unlocked budget smartphones out there. One of the pluses of the Moto G series is that they are “all carrier”, they not only work with GSM (T-Mobile, AT&T) but they also work with CDMA (Verizon, Sprint). It has a dual camera and fingerprint reader, but it doesn’t look like it has NFC (of interest for Android Pay payments).

Now shipping: Nokia 6.1 Android Smartphone (ZEISS Optics) w/free Photo Kit for $269

If you are a Nokia + Zeiss shipper (ha!), the brand new Nokia 6.1 factory-unlocked Android smartphone with Zeiss optics is now in-stock and shipping for $269 with free expedited shipping at B&H Photo with a free “B&H Photo Video Basic Photo/Video Kit for Smartphones” [mount, LED light, flexible tripod] automatically included by B&H.

This runs Android 8.0, with 3GB RAM [probably the minimum these days for Android], 32GB on-board, microSD storage, GSM, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C connector [but not USB 3.x features],

One of the things Nokia is promising with their Android phone line-up is speedy and steady OS and security updates ~ after all the phone is part of Android One. It is easier to promise this when your phone line-up consists of single-figures in individual models, we’ll see how it plays out in the next couple of years ~ after all, most phone manufacturers sound/sounded very optimistic in delivering updates at announcement time, but their post-release records are spotty and patchy [pun intended?]. But they have already delivered multiple updates for their first generation Android phones…

PS: the same price is offered at amazon.com but without a free photo-video accessories kit…

Especially with many clothing/fashion brands, prices can be all over the place, so price-check any products or brands whose price-ranges you may not be familiar with.

For actual camera bags, check our Camera Bags category where the new condition Manfrotto Street Messenger for DSLR kit (along with space for additional Lenses and laptop) continues to go for $30 with free shipping. This will ship 4/8/18 and not before.
