14 Tech and Outdoors Deals: Mario Kart, Apple HomePod , Lift Tickets, Garmin


It’s the fifth day of the new year, and as we all know, this year is going to be different. Are you incorporating more vegetables into your diet? Or riding your bike to work, or taking a digital detox? Perhaps you’re thumbing your nose at the whole idea of resolutions and are spending the first few months of 2019 in the same stumbling, overworked, and anxious haze with which you ended 2018. In any case, we’re not judging anyone. No matter what, we have a deal for you.

The HomePod Is on Sale for $250 ($100 off)

Sure, we decided that the HomePod is only for the hardcore Apple fan. But that description fits a lot of us, and Gear editor Michael Calore did salute the HomePod for its amazing sound and beautiful design. We call that a win, especially at this price.

Buy the Apple HomePod for $250 ($100 off).

Computer and Gaming Deals

  • Dark Souls Trilogy – PS4/Xbox One for $60 ($20 off). If you’re looking for home- or life-improvement equipment this weekend, you might be out of luck. But games? We’ve found a few of those.

  • Octopath Traveler – Nintendo Switch for $42 ($18 off). WIRED reviewer Julie Muncy called this dreamy, surreal Japanese game an homage to the role-playing games of the Super Nintendo era.
