The days are starting to get longer as we creep ever closer to springtime in the US. And coincidentally, the deals are getting better. Is there a correlation? Let’s go with yes and not think about it too much. The Verge Deals team has been playing the hits this week, with deals so good that they bear repeating for the weekend crowd. Check out some of the best deals below.

And if you’re looking slightly toward the future, stay tuned from whatever comes from next Tuesday’s Apple event. We expect the company to announce a new iPhone SE, among other exciting products. If you’re ready to upgrade your phone, there will probably be some good carrier deals and trade-in promos in store.

Fully Jarvis standing desks are 15 percent off through March 21st

I’ve purchased a lot of things for myself during the pandemic in the name of (at least hoping to) improve my quality of life. My favorite investment of all has been Fully’s bamboo-topped Jarvis standing desk. I got mine at regular price, but through March 21st, you have the chance to save 15 percent on the desk configuration of your dreams. Normally $599.99 for the base size (24 x 30 inches), it’s currently discounted to $509.15.

This popular standing desk quickly and quietly adjusts from a top height of 50 inches to a level low enough for you to sit on the floor.

I’m not the only one at The Verge who’s glad they got one of these desks. My colleagues Dan Seifert and Jay Peters also put down the cash and were glad they did.

Save $10 on Elden Ring for Steam

If you’ve managed to avoid seeing any hype about Elden Ring all week, then bravo. Also, if you like the idea of playing a difficult (unless you’re the person in the tweet above), yet rewarding open-world adventure game, then it might actually be something you’d enjoy. You can snag a Steam code for the game from Green Man Gaming at the same price that was offered ahead of its release. Normally $59.99, it’s $50.39 right now — no code necessary. Given the sheer amount of content and replayability that Elden Ring offers, this is a stellar deal. And it apparently runs on Steam Deck, if you have one of those.

Need a bit of a primer before you know whether you’re ready to jump in? Check out our review by Andrew Webster.

Check out Paramount Plus for a very cheap price

Until March 7th, Paramount Plus’ one-year birthday celebration is extending a special discount for new and returning subscribers. When you subscribe to one of its plans, you can use the code BIRTHDAY to get three months of its ad-supported Essential Plan for $1 per month, instead of $4.99 per month.

Though, if you want to sample everything that Paramount Plus has to offer with no ads (except on live TV broadcasts), the same offer code can get three months of its Premium Plan for just $2 per month instead of paying $9.99 each month.

$4.99

Paramount Plus offers access to thousands of episodes and shows from CBS, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and more, as well as original content. Now through July 27th, new subscribers will receive a month-long free trial when they use promo code SOUTHPARK at checkout.

FYI: Amazon Luna is now a complementary Prime perk

If you’ve always wanted to try Amazon Luna, the company’s cloud game streaming service, it’s now free to do so for Prime members. There will be a rotation of free games available to play. For now, that includes Devil May Cry 5, Phogs, Observer, and Flashback. You can also pay a monthly fee to access “channels” that contain other games — all of which are listed on the linked page above.

The service can be accessed from many devices, including Windows PC, macOS, Amazon’s Fire TV devices, Fire tablets, Chromebooks, and Android and iOS devices. You can pair an Xbox One or PS4 controller, or use a wireless mouse and keyboard.

California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoes the state’s “BitLicense” law.

The bill, called the Digital Financial Assets Law, would establish a regulatory framework for companies that transact with cryptocurrency in the state, similar to New York’s BitLicense system. In a statement, Newsom says it’s “premature to lock a licensing structure” and that implementing such a program is a “costly undertaking:”

A more flexible approach is needed to ensure regulatory oversight can keep up with rapidly evolving technology and use cases, and is tailored with the proper tools to address trends and mitigate consumer harm.

Get ready for some Netflix news.

At 1PM ET today Netflix is streaming its second annual Tudum event, where you can expect to hear news about and see trailers from its biggest franchises, including The Witcher and Bridgerton. I’ll be covering the event live alongside my colleague Charles Pulliam-Moore, and you can also watch along at the link below. There will be lots of expected names during the stream, but I have my fingers crossed for a new season of Hemlock Grove.

Looking for something to do this weekend?

Why not hang out on the couch playing video games and watching TV. It’s a good time for it, with intriguing recent releases like Return to Monkey Island, Session: Skate Sim, and the Star Wars spinoff Andor. Or you could check out some of the new anime on Netflix, including Thermae Romae Novae (pictured below), which is my personal favorite time-traveling story about bathing.

Has the Windows 11 2022 Update made your gaming PC stutter?

Nvidia GPU owners have been complaining of stuttering and poor frame rates with the latest Windows 11 update, but thankfully there’s a fix. Nvidia has identified an issue with its GeForce Experience overlay and the Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2). A fix is available in beta from Nvidia’s website.

If you’re using crash detection on the iPhone 14, invest in a really good phone mount.

Motorcycle owner Douglas Sonders has a cautionary tale in Jalopnik today about the iPhone 14’s new crash detection feature. He was riding his LiveWire One motorcycle down the West Side Highway at about 60 mph when he hit a bump, causing his iPhone 14 Pro Max to fly off its handlebar mount. Soon after, his girlfriend and parents received text messages that he had been in a horrible accident, causing several hours of panic. The phone even called the police, all because it fell off the handlebars. All thanks to crash detection.

Riding a motorcycle is very dangerous, and the last thing anyone needs is to think their loved one was in a horrible crash when they weren’t. This is obviously an edge case, but it makes me wonder what other sort of false positives we see as more phones adopt this technology.

Ford is running out of its own Blue Oval badges.

Running out of semiconductors is one thing, but running out of your own iconic nameplates is just downright brutal. The Wall Street Journal reports badge and nameplate shortages are impacting the automaker's popular F-series pickup lineup, delaying deliveries and causing general chaos.

Some executives are even proposing a 3D printing workaround, but they didn’t feel like the substitutes would clear the bar. All in all, it's been a dreadful summer of supply chain setbacks for Ford, leading the company to reorganize its org chart to bring some sort of relief.
