Half Price Books Black Friday Flyer Is Posted
Half Price Books Black Friday Flyer Is Posted

Half Price Books has been pretty consistent over the years with their Black Friday offerings. Once again they'll open their doors at 7am on Friday, November 28.

The first 100 early birds in line will get a tote bag and a $5 gift card. One lucky book worm will have a chance of having a $100 gift card in their tote.

Similar to last year the circular has a $15 off $50 coupon. There is an additional coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase, whereas last year it was a 40% any single item coupon. The year before that it was a 15% off your entire purchase coupon. So the $15 off $50 remains a staple, they're switching up that second coupon each year.

Harbor Freight Is the First Black Friday Ad Released for 2014
Harbor Freight Is the First Black Friday Ad Released for 2014

We've posted Harbor Freight's 2014 Black Friday Ad. It's pretty much business as usual... the majority of the products can be found in the 2013 and 2012 ads. The sale prices are pretty similar as well, but in some cases the "regular price" has gone up, making it look like a better deal.

Now this isn't to say you can't get nice tools and equipment for a good value from Harbor Freight, because you certainly can. If you check out the Harbor Freight Black Friday deals you'll see the BF prices are lower than their current, every day sale prices. But it's important to wait for other ads to come out, see what they're offering for similar merchandise, and always check current online prices.

Harbor Freight will open at 7am on Friday, November 28 (6am for Inside Track Club members).

FIFA 15 Is Available Now
FIFA 15 Is Available Now

EASports has just released FIFA 15 for major consoles, including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and PC. It will be available on Wii on October 1. It comes in two flavors: the regular FIFA 15 and the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Edition. The latter allows you to build concept teams by buying, selling, and trading players.

Emotional Intelligence is new for 2015. Players show emotion based on what's happening in the match. EA says there is over 600 reactions that you'll come across during missed goals, epic shots, and bad tackles.

They've also made improvements to the Dynamic Match Presentation, meaning you'll find more unique commentary, fan chants, and team bench reactions. All of which should make it more of a submersive experience for the specific match you're playing.

Goalkeepers have gotten more authentic for 2014 with tips, deflections, last second saves, and 50 new animations.

Your teammates and opponents will react and adjust tactics depending on what's happening in the game, just like real life.

Player faces, jerseys, and shoes are more realistic than ever. Jerseys move with motion and get dirty as the game goes on. In the same vein, the field gets marked up as the game goes along.

These are just a handful of the improvements to FIFA this year. For more features and videos, go to http://www.easports.com/fifa/features

FIFA 15 is available for purchase right now on Amazon.

Apple Is Launching the iPhone 6 Today
Apple Is Launching the iPhone 6 Today

This time of year has been quite popular for tech enthusiasts and anyone needing a phone upgrade. Today is sort of a holiday for Apple fans and investors. You've probably been hearing the rumors of the iPhone 6, maybe you already pre-ordered one. Today the iPhone 6 launches and is available in stores.

Despite past claims from Apple that a 4" screen was more than enough, they've taken a page out of Samsung's playbook this time and are offering two big-screen variations: iPhone 6 (4.7") and the iPhone 6 Plus (5.5"). Even the smaller 4.7" iPhone 6 is much bigger than what iPhone users are normally used to. I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 which has a 4.8" screen, which seemed huge when I upgraded to it from an iPhone 4 a few years back. Trying to use my wife's 4S is ridiculous. It's amazing how you get used to the device you're using, and changing the screen size by fractions of an inch seem drastic.

It's actually funny how many blogs online are trying to help iPhone users decide which model iPhone 6 they want. I've seen a lot of diagrams showing you how far your thumb will reach on each screen :) This isn't anything new to Android smartphones, only Apple. But Apple often makes a big deal about things that have existed in the marketplace for a while.

I think this was a smart move by Apple. I think a lot of former iPhone users were lured over to Android by the bigger screens, and I wouldn't be surprised if you see a lot of people switch back to Apple.

The iPhone 6 has a display resolution of 1334 x 750. The pixel count of 326ppi is the same as the 5S. The contrast ratio is 1400:1, which is almost double than the 5S. The iPhone 6 Plus resolution is 1920 x 1080.

The iPhone 6 and Plus come with the Apple A8 64-bit processor. The camera has new video features like 1080p 60fps, slow motion at 240fps, and time-lapse mode.

Pricing will start at $199 for the 16GB iPhone 6. $299 for the 64GB, $399 for the 128GB. Pricing for the iPhone 6 Plus will start at $299 for the 16GB version, $399 for 64GB, and $499 for 128GB.

Personally I've grown to love the Android operating system, and feel like you have a lot more control over the device. But I must admit I'm intrigued by the iPhone 6. I certainly would never go back to a smaller screen, so now that the size is comparable, it's something to think about.
