32GB Transcend Class 10 SDHC 200x for $8 (limit 30)

Speaking of storage, the 32GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model P-FD32GTBOP-GE, is on sale for $9 with a limit of 30 per customer.

The “New Usual” free shipping terms apply to this, like most Amazon purchases, free 2-day for Prime members, or with a $49+ order for non-members (or if the order includes $25+ in physical books). These for items shipped by Amazon or fulfilled by Amazon.

Speaking of storage, and while there, their sale continues on the internal Sandisk SSD Plus (120GB for $48, 240GB for $70). These models are eligible for Sandisk’s new Installation Hand-holding service (they charge for it of course – you can buy a separate bundle that includes both the SSD and the Handholding Service).

On the external storage front, especially if you are fond of color-coding your backups, the 1TB Toshiba Canvio Connect II Portable Hard Drive continues for $50 in three of the five colors.

Speaking of Amazon, you can get this ePhoto bracketB Off Camera Flash Bracket and Umbrella Holder Adapter for $2. It usually ships in 2-4 weeks. Limit ten per customer. This is sold and shipped by Amazon itself. It averages 3.7 out of 5 based on 22 customer reviews. Let the price set expectations as they say.

Speaking of speaking of Amazon, if you are looking for a way to charge multiple USB devices without mooching off a computer, this Aukey 5-Ports 40W/8A Wall Charger in the white color scheme, is on sale for $10 in new condition. Limit 30 per customer. This can provide up to 2.4A per port. It does not support the new Quick Charge protocols. It averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 39 customer reviews… They also have a 4-port Aukey 30W / 6A USB Travel Wall Charger Adapter for $8 (limit 30; 4.6/5 on 86 reviews).

We continue this six degrees of separation thing, if you like to record photography documentaries from Over the Air TV (they have them on occasion), and if you are a fan of TiVO and watch Over the Air HD, they have bundled TiVO Lifetime Service with the Roamio OTA HD DVR (record up to 4 things at once) together for $300. The monthly TIVO fee is $15 (if you buy the DVR on its own for $50), so this bundle pays for itself in about 1.5 years.
