This Long Range Nerf Gun Is Your Deal of the Day

It's no suprise that we love toys at Gizmodo, especially Nerf guns. Shooting a friend with soft foam is an absolute pleasure. When you think Nerf, you're thinking dinky foam darts, but the Vortex line combines the classic Nerf gun with miniature discs, which fly a lot farther and and quite a bit faster. In fact, the… » 4/30/13 3:00pm 4/30/13 3:00pm

This USB DAC Is Your Make-Music-Sing Deal of the Day

Even if you've got a sweet pair of cans, listening to music through the on-board jack on your phone or laptop can be underwhelming. That's why you need a little gadget called a DAC, or a digital-analog-converter. They take the flat, quiet sound that your crappy on-board audio produces and make it clearer and louder. … » 4/25/13 3:00pm 4/25/13 3:00pm

This Beginner's DSLR Is Your Deal of the Day

Nikon's D3000 came out in 2009, and even back then it was a cheap DSLR. It's meant for beginners. In addition to the decidedly non-professional $500 price, the D3000 actually features educational menus to help a first time photographer learn the ropes. Still, it wasn't cheap, especially for tyros or students—if you're… » 4/24/13 3:00pm 4/24/13 3:00pm

A $100 Lenovo Computer Monitor Is Your Deal of the Day

It's not too often you'll find an attractive computer monitor under $100, but that's exactly what Best Buy's got on tap for its deal of the day.

This Baratza Burr Grinder Is Your Deal of the Day

The most important—and expensive—coffee gadget for a home cupper is a burr grinder. Good coffee requires even extraction, and no matter how many fancy coffee makers you own, if you're not using a burr grinder, you won't be able to achieve the consistent grinds necessary for most coffee recipes, especially if you want… » 4/22/13 3:00pm 4/22/13 3:00pm

This Panasonic HDTV Is Your Deal of the Day

TVs are more furniture-like than almost any other gadget. They're big, they find a spot in your living room, and they stay there for years. That's a major reason why smart functionality—that goes obsolete—baked into a TV is daft: who wants to replace a piece of furniture every other year? But Panasonic did just that,… » 4/18/13 3:00pm 4/18/13 3:00pm

The iPad Keyboard Case You Want Is Your Deal of the Day

The iPad is not designed to be used with a keyboard. But that hasn't stopped moms, businesspeople, and tactile enthusiasts from using one anyway. If you know someone who likes their iPad big and bulky, don't try to convince them that the touchscreen is good enough. They've already made up their mind. What you can do… » 4/17/13 3:00pm 4/17/13 3:00pm

A Solid Everyday Rain Jacket Is Your Deal of the Day

We're solidly in the middle of April, and that means large parts of the country are already experiencing some unpredictable rainstorms. And that's great, because spring rain nourishes flowers and makes everything smell good. But if you're caught outside unprepared you'll be showing up to school or work smelling like a… » 4/16/13 3:00pm 4/16/13 3:00pm

Simpsons DVDs Are Your Perfectly Cromulent Deal of the Day

Did you know that there's no legal way to stream all-you-can-watch Simpsons episodes online? (Actually, Hulu streams the most recent episodes, but you can't even watch them on your TV.) That seems like a real missed opportunity, and it means if you wanted to revisit vintage El Barto, you'll have to catch him on… » 4/15/13 3:00pm 4/15/13 3:00pm

The Best-Looking iPad Case Is Your Deal of the Day

The Dodocase is one of the best looking tablet cases available. Basically, a Dodocase makes your tablet look like a leather-bound book. They are made in the United States. You can get them in various colors for various devices. Some people like the twee aesthetic; others don't. Personally, I think they're quite… » 4/05/13 3:00pm 4/05/13 3:00pm

These Pretty Bluetooth Headphones Are Your Deal of the Day

Although the technology behind wireless headphones is still improving, that's no reason to skip the current options if you know you want Bluetooth headphones. Some of them are pretty good. Last year Giz alum Adrian Covert tried a bunch of major Bluetooth headphones and liked the Phillipe Starck-designed Parrot Zik the… » 4/03/13 3:00pm 4/03/13 3:00pm

This Gorillapod Is Your Selfie-Improving Deal of the Day

Earlier today I found out it's totally gauche to post more than two selfies in a month. But here's one loophole—if you're taking the photos with a self-timer, they're not selfies anymore, they're self-portraits. Bordering on art. Totally acceptable. Post as many as you want. But to take a really stellar self-portrait,… » 4/02/13 3:00pm 4/02/13 3:00pm
