You can do more with your iPad Pro by connecting it to a wireless keyboard, especially one that features a trackpad to help you navigate more like a traditional laptop. Brydge’s Pro Plus wireless keyboards with a trackpad for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are $50 off at Best Buy. Normally $170, the model built for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is $120. Naturally, the smaller Brydge Pro Plus for the 11-inch iPad Pro costs a bit less. It’s normally $150, but you’ll pay $100 for it now.

The Brydge Pro Plus is one of a few options available that has a backlit keyboard and a trackpad built in. It connects to your tablet via Bluetooth and recharges via USB-C. Read our review.


If you’re looking for a competent iPad keyboard, Brydge’s Pro Plus has backlit keys and a generously sized trackpad. The model is available for both the 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro.

Also seeing a steep discount today are Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Live, the company’s bean-shaped wireless earbuds. At Amazon, you can score a set for the lowest price yet. Originally $170, they’re just $105 new today in the color of your choosing. In our review, Chris Welch notes that these stand out with a powerful, yet balanced sound and lengthy battery life. Though, the noise cancellation can’t block out a ton of noise, and they might not be a perfect fit if you have very small ears. Read our review (or watch it above).

Blue is the only color not available through Amazon, but Best Buy has it currently available for $120.


Samsung’s unconventional wireless earbuds are shaped like beans, but they produce a powerful sound and come with lengthy battery life.

SteelSeries is hosting a member-only 20th anniversary sale on gaming mice, keyboards, headsets, and accessories.

I suggest that you check out the full list of discounted products here, but for some hand-picked recommendations, its Aerox 3 Wireless mouse with a lightweight design, waterproofing, and USB-C charging is $70 (usually $100).

SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless is an IP54 water-resistant wireless gaming mouse. It weighs just 68 grams and features USB-C charging. The design borrows cues from the Rival 3.

As for headsets, its Arctis Pro Wireless unfortunately isn’t looped into the anniversary sale, but the wired version is, which is the next best thing. Normally $250, you can get the Arctis Pro plus a GameDAC system included for $180.

Through Thursday, September 16th at 11AM, Nioh: The Complete Edition is free of charge on the Epic Games Store. This third-person action game was developed by Team Ninja, known for its excellent and difficult Ninja Gaiden games. Nioh is no different in terms of difficulty, though it usually gets compared to games like Dark Souls in terms of game mechanics and controls.

Originally a PS4 exclusive, Nioh brought its difficult action-adventure gameplay to PC with The Complete Edition. Through September 16th, it’s free on the Epic Games Store.
