Sonos wireless sound systems are the gold standard for people looking for effortless music streaming around the house, but you'll pay for quality and convenience. If you've been looking to make the investment, Sonos is offering a bundle that'll save you a few bucks.
If you're not familiar with why you'd want a Sonos over, say, an Airplay or Bluetooth speaker, first read Brian Lam's Lifechanger piece.
If you know you want a Sonos, here's what this deal offers: For $300 you get a Sonos Play:3, a Sonos Bridge, and 90 days of Rhapsody. The Sonos Play:3 is the entry-level Sonos speaker—it's wireless and tiny, and if you get two of them, they can function as wireless stereo speakers. It's usually $300—which is the price of this deal—but Amazon and Sonos are also throwing in a free Sonos Bridge and three months of Rhapsody. The bridge hooks up to your router and extends your Sonos network—it's certainly something you'll want if you're piecing together a whole Sonos system. And while Rhapsody isn't one of our favorite music streaming services, free is free.

I'm counting the days until June 11, which is when the Mac port of the newest SimCity will be released. I believe that if you buy a copy now, you'll have access when the Mac port comes out—and something tells me that Mac gamers who don't think ahead will be paying more than $32 come June 11.

Right now at Rakuten Marketplace anything sold by beachcamera.com gets $50 taken off at the checkout—which means the Samsung 840 Pro is at one of the lowest prices we've seen. Most folks will be fine with the vanilla Samsung 840, but if you demand the best speeds from your components, $190 for a fast 240GB drive ain't bad. Note: you won't see the discount until you're checking out. [Rakuten]
