Forget Prime Day, Smyths Has Knocked £50 off the Giant Lego Hogwarts

Prime Day is drawing to a close, but the one thing we've been quite upset about is the lack of money off Lego. Usually Amazon has a number of nice-looking sets to flog, but this time it's basically just one - the 20th anniversary Slave I. But we're always on the lookout for an extra Lego bargain, and we just spotted Smyths has knocked £50 off the giant Lego Hogwarts. So now it's £300 instead of £350. Read More >>

Smarten Up Your TV For Less Than £12 With a Discounted Now TV Stick

Pretty much all TVs are Smart TVs these days, but they're not the best supported devices out there. Maybe you'll get a couple of years out of them, and even then you might have to take some extra precautions to keep them secure. It's much better to have a smart device plugged in, since those generally don't have the same problems, and one of them has a hefty discount. Read More >>

Prime Day is Still Going on, and Here are More Deals for 16th July

Prime Day is kind of a misnomer, because the whole sales period does not last 24 hours. When you're operating on a global scale like Amazon you can see how that might be a bit impractical, but it's still pretty cheeky calling two days one day. Read More >>

Lego Star Wars BOOST Droid Commander Sets Gets Surprise Early Release for Prime Day

Back in May Lego made an early announcement for Star Wars day, promising that there would be a Star Wars-themed version of the Lego BOOST robotics set arriving in September. But September was a long way off, and it seems Lego got sick of keeping it in storage for another couple of months. So Droid Commander has come early, like some sort of Prime Day miracle.

Minister “Extremely Sorry” for Porn Block Delay

About a month ago the government announced that its so-called 'porn block', which was due to come into force by today, was being delayed for an indefinite period of time. The reasoning was that nobody has bothered to tell the EU about the change, and since we're still currently a member of the union we still have to tell it when we're changing the law.

Even the iPads Have Been Discounted for Prime Day

Apple is usually pretty well known for not discounting anything, ever. Not unless it's selling really badly and they seemingly need to offload the stock before moving onto something else. But recently they've been knocking a few pounds off the RRP when the big sales come up, and it turns out Prime Day is no exception. In addition to fairly generous (by Apple standards, at least) discounts on iPhones, you can also save some money on a bunch of different iPads. Read More >>

Alan Turing is the New Face of the £50 Note

Last year the Treasury announced that the lesser-used £50 note will also be getting the fancy plastic upgrade as the more popular English bank notes. But it wasn't so forthcoming with the name of the person set to share the monetary real estate with her Majesty the Queen. Instead it was asking for suggestions from the common folk, to see who they thought would be a good fit. Provided they were a) dead, and b) a scientist. Read More >>

Of Course There are Plenty of Prime Day Deals on Echos and Other Amazon Devices

Amazon never turns down an excuse to put its own stuff on sale, and knocking 50% off the Echo Dot last week was just the start of what it had in store for Prime Day. If an Amazon device is in stock it's got some sort of discount, which will likely be in place until the end of the sale at midnight tomorrow. Or while stocks last. You'd think Amazon would be ready, but you never know how popular those Kids Edition Fire Tablets are. Read More >>

A Wild Samsung Galaxy Fold Appeared!

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has had rather a rocky launch, to say the least, but it may just be that the time spent waiting for the phone to actually launch may be coming to an end. We think, anyway, because someone's been spotted using one of the handsets out in public. Read More >>

Amazon Prime Just Got a £20 Discount, Just in Time for Prime Day

Amazon's Prime Day sales kick off next Monday, but one of the key caveats is that you have to be signed up for Amazon's Prime membership before you can take advantage of any of the deals. If you don't have Prime, now is probably the time to sign up, because Amazon just discounted a whole year of membership. Read More >>

As we all know by now, Amazon has announced its annual Prime Day sale will be kicking off next Monday. That means 48 whole hours of sales that are only on Amazon, and only for Prime Members.
