VIDEO: Three new videos debut in support of nascent Apple Music service

Banner for Apple's Apple Music service

Apple has released three new commercials in support of its recently launched Apple Music service. The overarching theme of the ads is the tagline “All the artists you love and are about to love, all in one place.”

One 30-second spot shines a spotlight on Norwegian DJ/producer Kygo:

Another 30-second video showcases popular British singer/songwriter James Bay:

Deal of the Week | August 14, 2015: Belkin Wireless G Router/Switch for $9.99 (reg. $39.99)

Belkin Wireless G Router Model F5D7234-4 for $9.99 (reg. $39.99)From industry leader Belkin comes a network peripheral slashed to one quarter its original price.

Where else might you find a name-brand Wi-Fi router and four-port Ethernet switch for less than 10 bucks? Sure, the 802.11g standard has been largely superseded by newer protocols like 802.11n and 802.11ac, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for this little guy. An apartment, hotel, or dorm room, for instance. Or maybe as a dirt-cheap way to extend your existing wireless network.

These are not refurbished. These are not used. These are not scratch-and-dent castoffs. No, these are brand-new, in their original sealed packaging. The Belkin Wireless G Router/Switch normally sells for just south of 40 dollars. But as this week’s jaw-dropping Deal, you can pick it up for $9.99.
