Deal: NES30 Bluetooth Controller Will Take You Back to the 80s for $29

With a growing number of games supporting Bluetooth controllers on Google Play, it may be time to invest in a piece of hardware that will take your mobile game playing to the next level. And with so many options on the market, it may be best to go with a shape you are already familiar with, which is why we recommend checking out the NES30 Bluetooth Controller.

As you can see, it is shaped exactly like an old NES controller, which should make you feel right at home again on the couch in your pajamas back in the 80s. Given the advancement in games, the controller does feature a few more control buttons than the original, but its shape and feel stays true.  (more…)

Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) 32GB on Sale for $159 From eBay

Update:  The Nexus 7 (2013) deal has returned, once again. With a new Nexus 9 tablet on the horizon, we may not see deals like this for much longer.

Still haven’t picked up the Nexus 7 (2013) after the countless deals that we have shared? Well, here is another one. Today’s deal includes the 32GB variant for $159.99, which is more than $100 off the original retail price. The device is “manufacture refurbished,” but you know what that means by now – the manufacturer has had a chance to work out defects or kinks.

Not much else to say with this one; you have seen this deal countless times.

Deal: $24 for Feather Buds Bluetooth Earbuds

Within the last year, I switched to wireless Bluetooth earbuds for workouts and can tell you that I will never go back to wired. There is a freedom you get when no wires are attached to your phone and you need to move, whether that be in a workout capacity or just traveling from one place to another. The problem with wireless Bluetooth earbuds is that most aren’t cheap. I currently use Jaybird Bluebuds X, which carry a price well over $100. They are great, but if you don’t feel like forking out that kind of cash for a set of buds that you may only use in certain situations, but still want to test the Bluetooth earbuds water, think about the current deal we have running in the DL Deals shop.

You can pick-up the Feather Buds for $24.99. They have a “noise canceling outer shell,” are tangle-free, and feature “crystal clear” sound at a range of up to 30 feet. They also have a built-in microphone, so you can take calls at any time.

Again, if you want to see if Bluetooth earbuds are for you, this isn’t a bad option to consider at that price.

Deal: Name-Your-Own-Price Code Bundle Could Turn You Into a Beast Developer

Over at the DL Deals site, we currently have a Name-Your-Own-Price bundle of courses that should help the future developers in the building hone their skills. The pack isn’t directly Android-related, as it instead focuses most of its efforts on web development, but the languages between the two are often interchangeable. With a set of courses like this, any developer should be interested.

The bundle is a lot like the Humble Bundle we featured earlier in that you get to decide how much you think the included courses are worth. You have to spend more than $1, but not much more. By simply paying more than $1, you get a select set of courses geared toward web development. However, if you spend more than the average pay-what-you-want price (currently $14.97), you get every course, including some bonuses. Again, this works just like a Humble Bundle.

Charities are also involved, including Child’s Play, World Wildlife Fund, and Creative Commons. 10% of your purchase will go towards whichever charity you choose.

So what’s included in the bundle?

You’ll get lifetime access to 8 actionable online courses, 826 total lectures, and more than 80 hours of content “that will have you coding like a pro in no time.”

Deal: Unlocked AT&T Galaxy S5 in Black, White, or Gold for $429

Even though it has been available for months, longer than most 2014 flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still a force to be reckoned with. With its industry-leading Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and great camera, the Galaxy S5 still stands up nicely to other top-tier devices introduced over the last couple of months. If you haven’t been moved by the new Moto X or LG G3, and the Galaxy S5 has remained on your radar, today may be the day to consider pulling the trigger on one.

A current eBay daily deal has the AT&T version (SM-G900A) in black, white, or gold with 16GB of storage for just $429.99. That’s off-contract of course. The device’s description says that it is unlocked and should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile. It does appear to be missing one of T-Mobile’s GSM bands, though, so your best bet would be to attach it to AT&T to get full LTE and GSM connectivity.  (more…)

Deal: Lithium Card is a Wallet-Sized Power Bank for $39

Power banks or battery packs are something that we think most people should own. You don’t need to own a big 15,000mAh pack, by any means, but you never know when you might need some extra juice to power your phone in a pinch.

A power bank like the Lithium Card, which is currently discounted on our DL Deals site and was an Indiegogo sensation, is a great option for those without a big budget or a lot of room. The Lithium Card is a wallet-sized (5 credit cards thick) battery pack that holds 1,200mAh of power and can charge up to 1% of battery per minute. That may not be enough to get you a full battery refill, but some times you only need just enough to get you through the rest of a day.

To see reviews, comments, and specs for the Lithium Card, hit up the deal link below.
