WagJag: Save 91% on Classes to Learn How to Build Apps for Android, iOS or Both!

Posted by on March 4, 2013 at 11:30 PM

WagJag: Save 91% on Classes to Learn How to Build Apps for Android, iOS or Both!

WagJag is bringing you an insane deal. These courses are not cheap but with WagJag you can learn how to make apps for Android, iOS or both for less than the cost of a date. And if you’re learning how to make apps, you aren’t going on dates anyway so it’s a match made in heaven.

This course is offered by eCareers who, admittedly, I know very little about. I looked around their website and they seem legit. The courses are usually wildly expensive. You’re getting an amazing deal.
  • $29 for an app-building course for iPhone (a $312 value)
  • $29 for an app-building course for Android (a $312 value)
  • $49 for an app-building course for Android AND iPhone (a $469 value)

If you have a Mac to code from, the iOS and Android course is the obvious winner here. Even if you’re only interested in one of the other, you’re really crippling yourself right off the bat by neglecting a massive app ecosystem.

It seems like, from the description, the course is meant for all levels, which is nice. I’ve done other programming courses that are terrible because they are meant for someone who doesn’t know anything. If they can manage to present the course in a way such that everyone can use it.

Apple Canada: Refurbished MacBook Air – $719! (Expired)

Posted by on December 9, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Apple Canada: Refurbished MacBook Air   $719! (Expired)

If you have always wanted a Macbook but the price was too prohibitive, now is your chance! Get the Refurbished MacBook Air 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 for only $719!

Evidently the direct link wont work… so to find this deal you click through, scroll down to “Refurbished Mac” under special deals. It is the first offer there.

This is an incredibly good price, nearly 25% off it’s retail value if you bought new. Refurbished from Apple is just as good as new. They come with the full warranty your brand new Macbook would come with. At this price, the Macbook Air is a complete steal.

The computer ships for free. Man, do I want this under my Christmas tree!

There are probably limited quantities so i would grab this deal up quick. It is rare to see a Apple computer for anywhere near $700. This is a special limited time price according to Apple.

Apple Canada: Don’t Forget to Shop Refurbished

Posted by on May 20, 2012 at 3:00 PM

Apple Canada: Dont Forget to Shop Refurbished

This is a little reminder on one of the most obvious ways to save money on anything Apple: buy refurbished. Apple Canada has a decently stocked refurbished section right now. Some people shy away from refurbished computers, however, I embrace them. You get to save money, plus, they took care of the problem so you don’t have to.

All refurbished computers, iPods, iPads, etc come with the full warranty.

We have been wanting to get Daniel (my husband) an iPod Nano to go on runs with him. In the refurbished centre we could pick up an 8GB iPod Nano for $99 (reg. $129) or a 16GB iPod Nano for $119.00 (reg $149). I save $20 no matter which Nano I choose.

If you are really wanting to get your hands on an iPad (I know I did), check out the Apple refurbished iPads. You can actually really load up going refurbished. Check out this Refurbished iPad 2 with Wi-Fi+3G 64GB – (second generation) for $649. If you bought a brand new iPad with the same stats you would pay $849. You save 23% ($200) and still get the same great warranty.

I have been wanting to get my hands on an Apple TV which retails for $109. I can pick a refurbished AppleTV up for $95, saving me $14. A friend of mine totally loves his Apple TV, and I am excited at the prospect.

Apple Canada: iPad 2 Reduced – Starting at $419

Apple Canada: iPad 2 Reduced   Starting at $419

This is a really popular post over on the forums, and thought I would stick it on the blog. The iPad 2 has received a price reduction from the Apple Store: Now starting at $419 (was $519)!

If you are not the type of person who needs to have the latest model of everything, this is a great deal – $100 off. It comes with the standard warranty from Apple Canada that you can extend as well. The iPad 2 is a great improvement over the iPad 1. It has a camera (big difference) and even my husband sees that the screen on the iPad 2 is brighter and a better quality that the one on the iPad 1. I notice that it is a bit lighter and I really enjoy the magnetic cover so I can show off my fabulous Gelaskin on the back.

Thanks so much to Mooser Margie for posting this on the hot deals forum!

Apple Canada: $100 Rebate on HP Printers with MAC Computer Purchase

Apple Canada: $100 Rebate on HP Printers with MAC Computer Purchase

So Jodie posted here about the fabulous back to school promotion that Apple is having: buy a computer and get a $100 gift card for the app store. Fabulous. A lesser known deal is that if you buy an HP printer from the apple store with your computer you can get $100 back. These promotions can be combined.

The HP printer and the MAC computer must be on the same receipt: then you are golden. Get this: HP printers start at $100, so you are essentially getting a new printer FOR FREE, or just for the cost of the tax. It is worth the trouble to send in the rebate form, receipt and codes.

I just gave in and replaced my computer. As a university student I got $100 off my new macbook pro, got the free $100 gift card to the app store, plus bought an HP printer for essentially $20 ($120, then take off the $100 rebate). I decided to pay the extra $20 to get the wireless printing feature: with it I can print directly from my iPad. Apple Canada: $100 Rebate on HP Printers with MAC Computer Purchase

Stack your deals people! Apple Canada: $100 Rebate on HP Printers with MAC Computer Purchase Be sure to check out the rebate form for qualifying printers.

Buy A Mac For School And Get A $100 Gift Card To Spend At The Mac App Store

Posted by on June 22, 2011 at 4:00 PM

 

If you are a  post-secondary student, parent purchasing for post-secondary student, or faculty and staff member at all grade levels,when you buy a new Mac with Apple education pricing  until 20th September, 2011, you’ll get a $100 Back to School Card.

When you buy a qualifying Mac from The Apple Store for Education, an Apple retail store or a participating Apple Authorized Campus Store, you’ll receive a $100 Back to School Card for use on the Mac App Store, the iTunes Store, the App Store, and the iBookstore.

Qualifying Mac must be purchased using Apple’s Education Individual Pricing. If the qualifying Mac is returned, and the Back to School Card has been redeemed by depositing its value into an iTunes account (even if no purchases have been made against the value of the Back to School Card), then the $100 will be deducted from the exchange or refund. Terms and conditions apply. Not all Apple products qualify for education pricing.

Apple offers special education pricing on Apple computers, software, and select third-party products to Post-Secondary Students, Parents buying for a Post-Secondary Student, or Teachers, Administrators, and Staff at all grade levels. Quantity limits apply.

As my PC repeatedly shuts down, I would love, love, love to get a Mac. So far, I’m happy with my iPod and iPad! Not sure I’m ready to make the upgrade just yet, but when I do, I’ll be seriously looking at a new Macbook.

Apple Canada: Clearance Apple TVs

Posted by on October 10, 2010 at 5:00 PM

Apple Canada: Clearance Apple TVs

So Apple has released a new Apple TV and has put all its 160GB previous model Apple TVs on clearance. These used to be $329 US and are on clearance for $169 CAN.

Why might you want to get the older model instead of the newly released one? Well, there are some major differences you should be aware of:

Full HD Streaming – The Old Apple TV made it possible for users to watch full HD 1080p movies and videos. Apple has reduced the video rendering capability on the new device to 720p.

Storage & Power Consumption – The new Apple TV has done away with local storage and makes the whole process work over ‘air’. The Apple TV will now require you to keep your computer or Wi-Fi turned on the whole time you watch your movie on TV. You also can’t even listen to music with the Wi-Fi turned off.

There is NO storage, not even to hold a couple of movies on the new Apple TV.

USB Support – The new Apple TV does not have support for USB storage.

Rent vs. Own: With the Old Apple TV you could buy movies on it, and store them on your hard drive. With the new Apple TV you can only rent, there is no buying.

So: that is a rundown on what makes them different, and in some ways makes the older model Apple TV superior, I think Apple was heading in the right direction with the new model, it just took it too far.

The clearance Apple TVs are brand new (not refurbs) and you are saving close to $200 on them. A really awesome deal if you ask me. Apple products rarely go on sale.

Free Shipping.

Free iPhone 4 Case Or Bumpers

This freebie is really only for those of you who have an iPhone 4. There was a big furore about reception problems on the latest model of the iPhone, and Apple have decided to offer free cases or bumpers to affected parties.

You actually have to download a free app to your phone, in order to get the case, so it might be best to visit the above iTunes page from your iPhone, if you want to order your free case asap. Here’s what the landing page states:

If you are experiencing reception issues with your iPhone 4, you are eligible to receive an iPhone 4 Bumper or other select third-party case from Apple at no charge.  Download this free app onto your iPhone 4 and apply for your free Bumper or case.

Free Iphone + Ipod Touch Software Upgrade on June 21

Posted by on June 12, 2010 at 10:00 PM

Free Iphone + Ipod Touch Software Upgrade on June 21

I am a Mac Geek, and I have demonstrated this in the past by both owning a macbook, and an iPod touch (itouch we call them), and also subscribing to MacLife, the ultimate Mac Geek magazine. However, with the increasing number of people who own iphones and apple touches I can now put my geeky knowledge to fabulous use!

Apple with be releasing the new operating system for its iphones and touches called iOS-4 on June 21, 2010 and it will be available as a free upgrade for all Iphones and touches excluding first generations.

Here is what MacLife had to say about the new operating system:

“The OS introduces many new features, with a version of multitasking headlining the roster. For example, you could listen to third-party music apps while running other apps. Additional improvements update Mail with a unified inbox and message threading, apps can be organized in folders, and you can choose the Bing search engine.

Enterprise updates include additional data protection and security, Exchange Server 2010 support, the ability to use multiple Exchange accounts, SSL VPN, and mobile device management.

Not all iOS 4 features will be supported on devices prior to the iPhone 3GS. For example, you’ll have to replace your pre-3GS hardware for multitasking.”

Now I think this is fab, because Apple knows how many people own these things and they could easily just say “hey, you have to pay,” but they aren’t. I love Apple!
