The All-Terrain Sound Bluetooth speaker is half-price at just $29.99

All-Terrain Sound Bluetooth Speaker

Freshtech describes the All-Terrain Sound as “the world’s most experienced speaker.” We don’t know what they mean by that, but for $29.99 we think it looks a bit of a bargain.

The All-Terrain Sound is a rugged, waterproof, Bluetooth speaker designed to support an active lifestyle. If you enjoy a soundtrack while you hurtle down a mountain or hike into the wilderness, then look no further. You can clip it to your pack, bike, or parachute with ease.

“We were impressed by the overall sound quality and volume” – Men’s Journal

No adventure speaker would be complete without durability, and that’s exactly what you get with the All-Terrain Sound. Other than looking the part, this gadget can take a punch. You can whack it off a rock or drop it in a river — the tunes will carry on rolling, and it won’t even sink.

It should be good for a couple of festival days too. A full charge brings 14 hours of continuous play time.

The All-Terrain Sound Bluetooth speaker:

  • Water, weather, and dustproof make it truly all-terrain use
  • Super portable and floats on water for easy use while traveling or hiking
  • Tested ruggedized durability (10 foot drop onto concrete)
  • Built-in microphone allows for speakerphone conversations

This speaker retailed at $59.95, but it’s half-price this weekend. If you head over to Tech Deals right now, you can pick one up for just $29.99. It’ll deliver in time for Christmas too.

Deal: Last day to get 12 months of Hulu for just 99 cents a month! (Deal extended)

Hulu 99 cents

Update #2, November 27 at 9:06 a.m. ET: Hulu has extended the promotion a bit longer. You can now sign up for 12 months of Hulu for $0.99 a month until today, November 27 at 10 a.m. PT/12 p.m. Central. Sign up at the link below!


Original article, November 23 at 11:11 a.m. ET: Hulu is one of the best premium streaming video services there is, and during the Black Friday holiday shopping weekend, the price to sign up for Hulu may never be cheaper. From now through Monday, November 26, you can get 12 months of Hulu for just 99 cents per month.

No, that’s not a typo. You can get a full year of Hulu for less than you would normally pay for the service in two months. Once more, this offer is not just for new subscribers. If you have signed up for Hulu in the past, but have not used it in 12 months or more, you can take advantage of this 99 cents per month deal as well. Keep in mind that this offer is for the Hulu “Limited Commercials” plan and also includes ads in TV episodes and films. After 12 months, people who get this offer will go back to the normal $7.99 a month price plan, although you can cancel the subscription before that date arrives.

Editor’s Pick

Hulu allows you to access thousands of TV shows and movies. While their range of movies is not quite as extensive as you might find on Netflix, Hulu does offer access to tons of classic and current TV shows. Indeed, many shows post their latest episodes on Hulu the day after they are shown on their network. In addition, Hulu is expanding its original TV shows with hits like the Emmy-award winning drama The Handmaid’s Tale, along with recent hits like Marvel’s Runaways, Castle Rock, and The First. More exclusive new shows and movies are coming to Hulu in the next 12 months, including a revival of the cult series Veronica Mars.

You have until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Nov. 26 (2:59 a.m. Eastern time on Nov. 27) to get this special Hulu deal. 12 months for less than $12 sounds like an offer most people wouldn’t refuse. Will you be signing up for this promotion.

Stay toasty and save 42% on knit touchscreen gloves

Touchscreen Gloves

You might prefer not to use your phone with gloves on, but it beats your fingers getting frosty as winter descends. To that end, we’ve sourced a great deal on some specialized touchscreen gloves to keep your mitts warm this winter.

These touchscreen gloves are minimalistic and fit all sizes. The material and thickness ensure your hands stay warm while giving you the dexterity to operate your device. The conductive palm and fingertip design ensures that you get the full response to your furious tapping, while a specially engineered grip stops your phone slipping away.

It’s getting cold out there.

We normally stop short of offering fashion advice, but we think that they’re nicely understated too. They’re unisex, and shouldn’t clash with your latest winterwear. 

The gloves are retailing for $19 if purchased directly from the supplier, but you can pick up a pair for only $10.99 if you take up this offer before Tuesday.

It’s getting cold out there. Follow the link below to find the deal.

Learn to code quickly in Ruby on Rails for under $30

Ruby on Rails Coding BootcampCoding is a fun and marketable skill, but it’s not always quick or easy. If that thought has put you off learning to code in the past, you might want to give Ruby on Rails a try.

Ruby on Rails is a popular system for developing web applications, and since its introduction, it’s been one of the most powerful tools available. To prove the point, GitHub, Shopify, Airbnb, Twitch, SoundCloud, and Hulu are all examples of top apps built with Ruby.

Even a coding newbie can be building web applications quickly.

The reasons for its popularity are pretty clear. Ruby is a relatively easy language to pick up, especially for beginners, and Rails is the framework which does the heavy lifting for you. The outcome is that even a coding newbie can be building web applications quickly.

Building web apps from the start is actually a great way to learn too. The highly-rated Ruby on Rails Coding Bootcamp is our deal of the day, and it takes that very approach. Through six learning kits and over 57 hours of online training, you’ll quickly become a Ruby expert.

Ruby on Rails Coding Bootcamp

Not only that, you’ll have a portfolio of complex and functional web apps that you can show to demonstrate your skills, including a Pinterest clone.

The full Ruby on Rails Bootcamp:

With almost $1,300 of expert tuition offered for only $29 right now, it’s little wonder over 1,600 people have already signed up. You can join them if you enroll before the deal ends on Wednesday.
