Interestingly, it uses high frequency sound to communicate with the iPad. The other product on sale is the AppTag Laser Blaster ($59.99 -> $45.99) which is an augmented reality gun that you can clip your iPhone to.

- Belkin - Popular Mac and iOS accessory company. 30% off everything with coupon code "CYBER30". Until noon PST.

I bought a pair of headphones from Amazon today and they have me a $2.00 credit for Amazon music downloads. This was not listed anywhere on the site today (that I could find). It was a great surprise.

If you could order now, with the 30% discount, it would be ~$280, that I'd very seriously consider, just not available.

I saw the other day Amazon presented me with an option for a movie/music credit for "regular" shipping vs. using Prime, interesting offer if you're not in a rush.

Worked for me just now. Ordered a car charger for the iPhone 5. I couldn't justify the price before, but with 30% off I was able to pull the trigger.

Lol, same here. I was about to bite the price on black friday after they basically offered no sales whatsoever. I'm glad I held off.

iPhone 5 Car Charger: $20.99 - Free Shipping

My problem with this charger, even with the discount, is you can just get a car charger with a usb port for a few dollars anywhere, and use a regular USB lighning cable. That way you can use your lighning cable with a computer as well. Not sure why belkin's is a one-piece car charger.

True, but if you're someone like me thats constantly moves his phone, I hate it when the USB disconnects from the car charger. Plugging it back in is a pain in the ass in my car.

from what i can gather based on Griffin & Belkin's iPhone 5 lighting car chargers... Apple's new stringent guidelines for Lightning accessories must call for it being a non-removable cable, since most of their other options have been removable.

that said, i bought one (i'd bought the Griffin coiled cable one last week for 30% off too) simply because i hate having a white cable in a black/grey interior.

True that.

The lightning side of things is awesome though, don't even have to look at my phone any more to plug it in. Wish usb worked like this.

This appears to be a 10W charger. Not sure if they are all the same but It looks to also charge the iPad 4 as well.

Anyone have this yet?

Agree. Bought a Belkin with the coiled cord and returned it and for one with the regular, detachable cord. Had to up the power to charge my iPad in the car.

$100 card for $85 becomes 77 songs for $85... It's still not as good a price as apple touted music-store wide for years.

As long as it's not app developers chipping in for the discount, I'm happy with it

Edit: Arn (or other MR staff) - the link to the 2012 comparison chart requests a login and goes to an address starting with front.macrumors.com... I don't normally pay attention to the URL so maybe that's normal but I get the idea it's a link to an admin control panel where one could modify the article if they had proper credentials.

Great deal on the Dell display. That's the same awesome panel used in the Thunderbolt display.

Yah, that's definitely the best deal of the day. A deal like that could push some of the iMac holdouts over the edge to PC.

can anyone tell me why the apple cinema display looks so stunning? what exactly does it "have" that makes it look so nice!

i dont know a whole lot about monitors but i have always wanted a cinema display but as we all know it costs a lot of $$$ would this dell one be able to give the same viewing experience?

also i note that on the cinema display that its a little more vibrant, like the glass covering on it makes things look richer as opposed to a screen without a protective coating like some of the older 15 inch macbook pro without the anti glare display

They're IPS displays, most monitors aren't IPS. Those cost a lot more and look better than regular (TN) displays. Yes, the glass on the TBD makes the colors appear more vibrant. The Dell one is matte though so you won't get that effect, but some people prefer matte displays because they find the reflection less distracting. It's a matter of preference.

Personally I would prefer a display with laminated glass, like on the new iMac. You get the best of both worlds (or almost). I hope they update the TBD soon to make it more like the new 27" iMac.

i bought a 23 inch LG IPS computer monitor last year from frys for like 200 or so, its a great monitor and i am happy with it but its no where near the quality of the cinema display?

so does the cinema display have some sort of processing chip in it or something?
