Don’t travel abroad before checking out this Rosetta Stone deal

I think we can all agree regardless of politics that there’s a lot of weirdness going on in the world right now.

As a result, thousands of people who had previously elected to live and die in their hometowns are tinkering with the possibility of taking a jaunt through foreign lands.

There’s only one major wall many of them are facing.

The language barrier.

Fortunately, in honor of this uptick in international travel interest, Rosetta Stone has put their highest rated sets on sale!

That’s right, today and tomorrow you can get the Spanish, French, Italian, or English Level 1-4 boxed sets for 34 percent off!

Since this critically acclaimed language learning software normally costs $229.00, that brings your grand total to just $149.99.

But traveling isn’t the only reason to pick up a new language. Studies show that bilingual people are regarded as more intelligent by their peers across the board, are more than twice as likely to be selected for a job over single-language candidates with similar credentials, and make substantially more money on average than single-language speakers.

Don’t travel abroad before checking out this Rosetta Stone deal

Rosetta Stone is considered the gold standard in mastering a new language. Its intuitive, immersive method of teaching has drawn high praise from the Wall Street Journal, CNET, CNN, and PC Mag.

The versatile, platform spanning system lets you learn on the go during your idle time thanks to the mobile app, and the language games are as fun as they are informative. Expand your mind, increase your value as a job candidate, and travel without feeling like a silly tourist.

If you consider yourself a heavy user where storage space is concerned and are constantly deleting images, videos, and other data just to make room for new content, you probably need a memory card with extra large capacity. Good news: Amazon has a great deal on the SanDisk Ultra 256 GB microSD card, saving you a third of the price.

The retailer currently has it for $134.99, which is $65 off its usual list price. There’s an SD adapter included, and the product comes with a 10-year limited warranty. Amazon will also send the memory card to your doorstep free of charge, which will save you a few extra bucks.

Deal: 1 year of domain hosting, $2.99

0

The AAPicks team writes about things we think you’ll like, and we may see a share of revenue from any purchases made through affiliate links.

The internet is ever-expanding, and high-value domains are starting to get pretty damn pricey.

Fortunately, there’s a new opportunity to snag a catchy domain name, and you won’t have to break the bank for it.

.com, .org, .net, .edu, and .gov et cetera have all arisen to serve specific purposes online. Although some started of quite small, like .edu, the growth of the internet and rapid adoption quickly pushed it to widespread use.

However, many of these, especially .com, have become supersaturated and domain availability is becoming a real problem.

What’s the solution?

Since technology is becoming an integral part of everyone’s lives, .tech is emerging as a new option that lets companies and private users grab simple, straightforward web addresses.

Microsoft, for instance, owns rewards.tech, the Consumer Electronics Show uses ces.tech, and The Next Web can be found over at tnw.tech.

The perk of .tech? Since it’s still in its nascence, it’s very inexpensive. You can set up your own .tech website for as little as $49.99 per year normally, BUT if you take advantage of this offer through Radix, you can get a year subscription for $2.99.

.tech Domains in a Glance:

  • Register & use a .tech domain name for 10 years
  • Build your brand w/ a domain name that categorizes your business well
  • Take greater control over your domain extension w/ many unregistered domains
  • Reflect your passion for technology & startups
  • Brand your business better across the internet

Pretty sweet opportunity. If you want to really save, the $10 year subscription is an even better option: $39.99 for a full decade of .tech ownership. For companies and organizations, this choice is a no-brainer.

Ready to finally get that website name you’ve always wanted? Click the button below to get started!

0

LG V20 is one of the best phablets you can currently buy. If you have been thinking of getting it, we have some great news for you. B&H has a great deal on the device as it’s selling it for only $499.99, which is $300 off its regular price. But you’ll have to move fast if you want to get it. The deal is available for a limited time only and will expire in about 15 hours.

As a refresher, the LG V20 is a large device with a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Additionally, the device also features a 2.1-inch secondary display that can show app shortcuts, your favorite contacts, calendar events, and more.

You’ll find the Snapdragon 820 chipset under the hood along with 4 GB of RAM. There’s 64 GB of storage available that can be expanded with a microSD card (up to 256 GB). The device sports a dual camera setup (16 MP + 8 MP) and a selfie snapper that has a 5 MP sensor.

Deal: Get the RAVPower 22,000 mAh battery pack for $29.98 (25% off) at Amazon

0

If your smartphone battery constantly runs out of juice while you’re out and about, you should consider getting a power bank. Amazon currently has a great deal on the RAVPower 22,000 mAh battery pack that will save you some cash.

The retailer is selling the product for $29.98, which is exactly $70.01 off its list price, which, however, does not reflect street prices. We’ve seen retailers like Newegg and others sell the product for around $40, so that means you’ll really only save around $10 or 25 percent. Nevertheless, this is still a great deal for those of you who are in the market for a power bank.

As you can tell by its name, the battery pack has a capacity of 22,000 mAh. This means you can charge your Samsung Galaxy S7 up to five times. And when the power bank runs out of juice, you can fully charge it in around 11 hours.

It sports three USB ports, so you are able to charge up to three different devices at once. The battery pack comes with a lifetime warranty and features a fire-resistant thermoplastic alloy shell. It is only available in the black color option.

If you want to get the RAVPower battery pack, visit Amazon’s sales page by clicking the button below. But you better hurry up, as the deal is only available today and will expire in less than 20 hours.

Sony Xperia X price in India drops to half its original RRP

0

Following a quick price cut in India late last year, the Xperia X has just been discounted again – this time to half of its original RRP. Initially launched in May 2016 for Rs 48,990 and then dropped to Rs 38,990 in September and more recently to Rs 29,990, the Xperia X will now set you back just Rs 24,990.

You can pick the phone up at the new price on Flipkart, but Amazon India is still showing it for Rs 29,990. Even at its new price point though, which puts it squarely between the OnePlus 3 and Xiaomi Mi 5, it feels a little overpriced: the Snapdragon 650 chipset in the Xperia X is going to be outgunned by the Snapdragon 820 found in both other phones.

Sony Xperia X price in India drops to half its original RRP

The Xperia X is available at the discounted price in all colors: black, white, lime gold and rose gold and it can be yours in 3-4 days. Flipkart is also offering an additional 5 percent off for buyers with an Axis Bank Buzz credit card. The listing notes that the offer is good until stocks run out or the offer ends, so it’s unlikely this is a permanent price drop.

It’s time for you to monetize all that tech knowledge.

We know you’re already tech-savvy. Hell, according to a recent survey we did of our readers, there’s an 80% chance you feel like your friends and family consider you their own personal IT guy.

But the time has come to stop fixing Grandma’s email for free. It’s time to turn your IT-ness into $$-ness.

A brief look around the tech landscape reveals that there are two careers that are doing really well right now: White Hat Hacking, and System Administration.

Although we’ve got some resources available if you want to go the hacking route, the more administrative among you might want to check out a course bundle that’s currently on sale over at Tech Deals.

The Complete Linux System Administrator bundle has everything that you need to go from beleaguered pro-bono tech guy to network-wielding lord of all he surveyeth!

That looks like what we’ve got going on here, and this bundle even includes the popular Ultimate Red Hat Linux Training kit!

Here’s what you get:

The tech wizards among you who were also competitive on the Math Quiz Bowl team may have already assessed that buying these courses independently would cost you a hair-raising $2,100.

Deal: Moto G4 Play 16 GB for just $99

0

Looking for a solid Android device without paying a fortune? The Moto G4 Play could be exactly what you’re looking for, and right now it is on sale for just $99.

The G4 Play comes with a 5-inch HD (720p) display, running Android Marshmallow out of the box. There’s an 8 MP camera on the back and a 5 MP camera on the front, in addition to a quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 2,800 mAh battery. In our review, we called the Moto G4 Play a strong candidate for those in search of an entry-level Android phone, and at this new price it is even more compelling.

Of course, MWC is almost here and we know that the Moto G5 will be announced at that time. Is it better to wait? That’s not an easy question to answer. If the G4 Play meets your needs and you don’t want to wait, then don’t wait! Even though MWC is almost here, odds are the G5 won’t actually be on sale for at least a month or more, and it’s hard to deny that the G4 Play is priced right at $99. On the other hand, if you’re hoping the G5 doesn’t cost too much more but delivers solid improvements, it’s up to you on whether that’s worth waiting.

For those that decide the G4 Play is the right option, you’ll find it for $129.99 but a promo code knocks it down to $99. You’ll add the promo code MGPLAYSPE at checkout in order to get the advertised low price.

Deal: pick up an unlocked LG G5 for $300 on eBay

0

While we await the official reveal of the LG G6 in less than two weeks at the MWC 2017 trade show in Barcelona, Spain, you can get the older LG G5 for an excellent price on eBay. A retailer called QualityCellz is offering the unlocked 32GB version of the phone right now for $299.99.

Best LG G5 cases

December 14, 2016

While it turned out not to be a big sales success, we though the LG G5 was an excellent phone when we reviewed it in April 2016. Since then, LG has rolled out a software update that includes Android 7.0 Nougat, so if you get the LG G5 you will also be getting one of the very few devices that runs the latest version of Android.

The LG G5 is one of the first mainstream smartphones to embrace the modular accessories trend with the introduction of its “Friends” products. They included optional camera and speaker modules that connect directly to the phone. However, LG’s version of a modular phone was not embraced by the public so the LG G6 will not have those kinds of features.

Still, the core phone itself is quite good, even if you don’t get any of the “Friends” modules. The LG G5 includes a 5.3-inch IPS Quantum QHD Display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Inside it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and the 32GB of onboard storage can be increased, via the microSD card slot, by up to 2TB. It also has a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing selfie-camera, and a removable 2800mAh battery.

Would you get the LG G5 for this low of a price, especially since you should be able to update it to Nougat? Or will you wait a few weeks to get the LG G6, with its bigger 5.7-inch 18:9 ratio display? Let us know what you plan to do in the comments!

Deal: Permanent second phone number for life, $25

0

The AAPicks team writes about things we think you’ll like, and we may see a share of revenue from any purchases made through affiliate links.

Ever felt the need for an additional phone number, but having a second phone seems unnecessary and existing services are too expensive?

Well, now you can have your cake and eat it too! Or… at least… have your phone and… call it from two numbers… Don’t press the metaphor, kid.

Hushed is a service that provides you with a secure, second phone number that’s completely private. It’s the perfect solution for keeping your work and social life separate, staying safe while dating or using Craigslist, and more!

It’s been called a “more lightweight alternative to Google Voice” by TechCrunch, and it requires zero phone contracts and no obligations. A secondary voicemail naturally comes with the line.

Normally, Hushed costs $145 through Affinity Click. However, in an offer ending this week through Tech Deals, you can grab it for just $25 instead.

That’s lifetime access for 82% off the sticker price.

Hushed in a Glance:

  • Use included plan towards a combination of 3000 SMS or 500 phone minutes per year (North America 365 Plan)
  • Make calls & send texts from a private phone number without monthly fees
  • Choose from 100’s of area codes across the US & Canada
  • Manage your communication from a single app
  • Access one lifetime number per account
  • Customize your voicemail
  • Set up call forwarding settings
  • Utilize Wi-Fi or data while you chat so you don’t incur service charges

To sweeten the deal, if you know someone else who might be interested in an additional phoneline as well, Tech Deals will pay you $10 for recommending them to this deal.

However, you’ll have to act quickly. This deal ends Friday!
