This dashcam keeps you safe on the road, and it’s just $25

Black Box HD Car Dashcam

YouTube is awash with audacious insurance scammers. There are people who throw themselves onto stationary cars and slide down the hood. They’re pretty funny as a neutral observer, but it’s only a dashcam saving the drivers from being defrauded.

Having an accurate record of bad behavior on the road can save you your insurance premium. It could even save someone’s life if you stop the perpetrator causing future damage. The easiest way to do it is to get a dashcam, and we’ve got just the deal for you.

The Hi-Res car dashcam from Black Box is an affordable option that does everything you need. It’ll happily record what’s going on in the road ahead of you, and protect you in the event of any dispute.

The dashcam records hours of HD footage, but obviously you only need it if there’s an incident — you’re not going to be reliving the memory of your smoothest journeys in a few years time. To save space, it records in a continuous loop, so you always have the latest footage.

The dashcam at a glance:

  • Captures HD footage
  • Operates as both a recorder and digital camera
  • Ensures any accident is recorded
  • Records over older recordings so you always have the latest footage
  • Continues recording when your car suddenly jerks or shakes, even if the device is turned off
  • Offers up to two hours of recording time with the 8GB microSD card
  • Includes capacity for a microSD card up to a 32GB (not included)

The dashcam has a list price of almost $120, but it’s on offer this Christmas season. Well, until Monday anyway. If you get in quick enough, you can pick one up for just $24.99. If not for you, maybe you can tick your dad off the gift buying list, and it free international shipping is included.

Deal: Learn how to build a computer or upgrade your laptop

Build a Computer Bundle

I work on a laptop every day, but I’m at its mercy. I have no idea how it works. If it decides to stop working, I have to take it to a guy and ask for help. If he says a number of dollars I have to pay, because if I don’t my laptop doesn’t start working again.

I’m just being lazy. If I knew how my computer worked, I could maintain and upgrade it. After all, it’s not made of cobwebs and magic.

The How to Build a Computer Bundle is what I need. This five-part and five-star-rated learning kit is an extremely useful online guide if you don’t know the first thing about computer maintenance.

It’s not just about building and maintaining your machine either. You can learn how to pimp it out. A couple of the courses in this package are about how you can modify and upgrade your computer or laptop. You can have it running colder and faster than ever.

Build a Computer Bundle

Knowing these skills could save you money when buying too. When you purchase a computer you’re paying for the components and the labor that put it together. If you know how it all fits together, then you can buy the parts and build it yourself. You’d save a bundle.

The How to Build a Computer Bundle:

We’re spotlighting this deal today because there’s a huge price drop on this bundle right now. The entire learning kit is available for just $19.

The deal expires in a matter of days, so if you’re interested, head over to Tech Deals via the button below.

Deal: Become an in-demand Hadoop engineer

The Very Big Data and Apache Hadoop Training Bundle

There’s data, then there’s Very Big Data. For the latter, conventional analysis methods just don’t cut it. Big businesses need specialist Hadoop engineers, and they’re willing to pay specialist salaries to get them.

These skills can be learned, but face-to-face training from experts can be very expensive. Fortunately, online courses can be sold thousands of times, and therefore be brought to students at a much more affordable rate.

The Very Big Data & Apache Hadoop Training Bundle is the perfect example of this.

This five-star-rated series of 10 learning kits is a step-by-step guide to harnessing the huge processing power of the Hadoop software framework. Even as a complete beginner in Big Data, you’ll be introduced to the concepts of Hadoop, Apache, Hive, MapReduce and many more powerful data handling tools.

You’ll then progress to master them by applying them to real-world data analytics problems.

The Very Big Data and Apache Hadoop Training Bundle

Here’s the full Hadoop lineup:

In one of the biggest discounts we’ve found this year, the combined $3,000 value of all these learning kits has been temporarily slashed by 99 percent. Right now you can get the entire bundle for just $29.

With 30 hours of Hadoop training, you’re paying less than $1 per hour of expert-led instruction. You get lifetime access too, so you can crash-course it all in one week, or make it your New Year’s resolution. 

The offer expires in a matter of days so don’t miss out. Over 800 people have already enrolled. Hit the button below to find out more.

The Google Store is offering holiday deals on Home Hub, Nest products, and more

Google Home Hub

Black Friday was only a couple of weeks ago, but the Google Store is already back with its holiday sale. If you didn’t happen to purchase presents yet, these discounts should save you some money.

First up, Google is yet again discounting its latest smartphones. While the sales aren’t as great as what we saw back during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, they might be enough to make you consider picking up a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL for yourself or a loved one.

The Google Store’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL discounts are live right now and will end on December 22. 

Editor’s Pick

Next up, Google is taking a decent amount off of its smart home tech. This includes deals on the original Google Home, Home Max, Home Hub, and the 4K-capable Chromecast Ultra.

You can take advantage of these deals between now and December 24.

Since late November, Google has been offering customers $80 off when they bundle the Home Hub with select Nest products. The Google Store is upping this deal and is taking an additional $20 off the bundled cost, bringing the saving to $100.

The below bundles are also available starting today with discounts ending on December 24.

Deal: The 360 Earphones are the future of portable sound

Once in a while, a paradigm shift occurs in the tech world. You may think you’ve heard how good sound can be from earbuds. 360Audio is saying “hold my beer.”

The 360 Earphones are something of a revolution in portable sound. Redesigning the mechanical structure of earbuds using patented technology, these buds are designed to play sound the way it was created — multi-directionally.

The 360 Earphones incorporate an innovative new mechanical approach to earbud technology, as the video above demonstrates. You can now listen with 5.1 virtual surround sound, the dynamic frequency range from 8Hz to 20KHz, and the truest bass realized on an earbud platform.

360 Earphones

Sound industry experts have been lavishing praise on the 360 Earphones, including Chris Julian — Emmy award winner for film sound editing. The tech world is excited too. In awarding the earbuds 9.8 out of 10, TechAeris said: “The only problem that these earbuds present is what do we do with all of the other earbuds that we own?”

The 360 Earphones at a glance:

  • Immerse yourself in true replicated audio and enjoy the best sound you’ll ever hear on an earbud
  • Frequencies are clearly separated to provide clarity and 3D 5.1 virtual surround sound
  • Packs the same bass response you’d get in a subwoofer into an earbud
  • Intrasonic frequencies develop in the back cavity allowing you to hear crystal clear bass
  • Viscoelastic material inside the mechanical structure refines frequencies to produce clear output and absorbs unwanted feedback
  • In-line microphone and control button allows you to make calls and control track and volume

This Kickstarter success raised its goal 10 times over and hit the market for $150. They’ve now come on offer for the first time, so this week, you can pick up a pair from Tech Deals for just $72.

This price drop is only temporary, and you can even get delivery before Christmas if you’re quick. Tap the button below to find the deal.
