Deal of the Week | July 26th, 2013: 8-Pin Lightning to USB cable for $4.99

8-pin Lightning to USB cable for $4.99If you own a late-model iPod touch or iPad, or the iPhone 5, you’re already familiar with the Lightning cable it came with. It works great, but it is, after all, just one cable. Detaching and lugging it everywhere you and your device go can get pretty tedious.

Now you can keep one in the car, one at the office, one in the beach house… well, you get the idea. These are not Apple-branded cables, but they’re functionally identical (they can charge and sync your iOS devices) and sell for a just over a quarter of the price of the Apple version. That’s right: instead of $19, this cable sells – this week only – for a mere $4.99!

Deal of the Week | July 12, 2013: Compact nine-LED red pocket flashlight for $4.99

Compact nine-LED red pocket flashlight for $4.99Since around June 21st, the days have been growing shorter again.

Sad but true: It’s getting darker sooner, each and every day. And you really don’t want to be caught out in that darkness, unprepared. It’s a jungle out there. Here in Oregon, we really do have lions and bears (and tigers, too, if only in prehistory).

That’s where this week’s DOTW comes in: A sturdy, compact, surprisingly bright LED flashlight for under five bucks. When a threat comes charging at you, you need to see it coming.

Keep one by the breaker box, one in the glove box, one in the junk drawer, another behind the computer desk (for those times you need to plug/unplug something), and yet another in your Gulfstream’s liquor cabinet – and you still haven’t spent $25.
