Argos Deals – GO!

Right. Yadda, yadda, yadda, Black Friday. Deals. Bargains. Offers. Spend lots of money. Take many years to pay it back. Stress about it, but bury your head in the sand and look at the shiny, shiny. Yay.

Today it’s Argos, and a load of Black Friday deals have, quite literally, just gone live.

Argos Deals   GO!

That can’t be comfortable..

First, the Amazon Fire TV Stick. Yes, the one where you can do “that thing” to it and watch The Grand Tour which (I must admit) is excellent. Now it’s down to a mere £24.95. Get it on this Argos page and collect it from store.

Next, some branded headphones to impress your mates with. These rely on a tried and trusted bit of technology called a “3.5mm audio port” and are down to £99.99 (they were £129.99).

If you want an Amazon Fire 7 (don’t expect too much), then you need to head here for the 8GB version where it’s just £29.99 (was £49.95). The 16GB version was £59.99 but is now down to £39.99.

Meanwhile, there’s some fitness trackers. The Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity and Sleep Wristband is down to £39.99 and you can get it in black or pink.

More as we get it people. Go go !

Update – It looks like Amazon are matching the prices on a lot of this, so if you’d prefer to buy from them, head to the Amazon Black Friday page.

    initial thoughts

    On the face of it, The Acer Iconia Tab 10 looks like a pretty good tablet then. I have been using the device for a few days now, mainly for its multimedia functionality. In this role, it is performing admirably. The battery will last long enough for at least two feature-length films with room to spare. There are some pretty neat little features that have been stacked on top of a relatively spartan installation of Android 6.0. One of these is the use of multi-finger inputs. For instance, when the screen is locked, you can use 5 fingers to unlock the screen and go to an app of your choice. This is a really nice touch when you’re using the tablet in conjunction with an HD TV via the inbuilt HDMI port.

    Connectivity wise, in addition to the Micro HDMI port, we also find Micro USB for charging and USB OTG is supported. You will also find a 3.5mm headphone jack and Micro SD card support for storage expansion of up to 256GB. The Wifi is 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth version is 4.0. We can also find an accelerometer for detection of movement, and GPS for navigation. Sadly there is no LTE model of this device, so if you plan to use this on the go you will need to tether to a hotspot or phone.
