If you missed ING’s awesome Double Referral Bonus promotion (and live in Canada), the good news is that it’s back and now runs through December 31st, 2012. Basically, ING Direct is doubling their usual $25 bonus to $50 for each referral made, so once you’ve got your account setup, you can get your friends and family to sign up for a free Thrive Checking account. And when they do and deposit their first $100, you’ll get $50 for each referral. At the very least, you’ll still get $50 yourself just for setting up an ING account (you must use an Orange Key, like this one: 39694980S1). See my previous post for the complete details on how to get started.

As an added bonus, you can even score a $100 Apple Gift Card just for switching over your payroll.

That’s right, a $100 Apple Gift Card for simply switching your payroll over to your (newly created) ING account. The payroll bonus is only applicable for clients who are transferring their payroll into their Thrive account for the first time. This promo ends in two weeks, on Nov 30th, and you’ll also automatically be entered to win 1 of 10 $5,000 Apple Gift Cards. I made the switch over a month ago and have already received my $100 GC, which I look forward to using at the Apple Store. You can visit the ING Apple Gift Card page here for more info.

Free Worldwide Calling on Skype for 1 month ($13.99 value) http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/11/09/free-worldwide-calling-on-skype-for-1-month-13-99-value/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/11/09/free-worldwide-calling-on-skype-for-1-month-13-99-value/#comments Fri, 09 Nov 2012 23:13:26 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=70625 Make more than your share of long distance calls?

Make more than your share of long distance calls? Well Skype is currently running a promo that gives its existing users free worldwide calls for a month. Basically, it’s the Unlimited World subscription plan ($13.99) you’ll be getting free for 30 days. With it, you’ll get unlimited calls to landlines and mobiles in 7 countries (US, Canada, Hong Kong, Guam, Puerto Rico, Singapore and Thailand) and landline calling in 34 countries.

Once you ‘Claim’ your free trial month (you have until Nov 15th to do so), you must cancel within the first 27 days or your payment method will be charged for the subsequent month. The one big caveat is that the deal is only available to current Skype users who have been registered with Skype for more than 29 days. But if you’re already on Skype, this is great way to get some free calls to your friends and family overseas on your iPhone and iPad via the Skype app.

Above is a screenshot of the countries that fall under the Skype Unlimited World plan. Personally, I love using Skype on my Macs and iDevices and I’ve subscribed to the Unlimited US & Canada plan for over 2 years now. For $2.99/month (I pre-pay for 12 months for a 15% discount), I get to call both cellphones and landlines in North America as much as I want, which is even more enticing as I travel to Asia 2-3 times a month and I can call my wife without having to worry about paying exuberant sums on long distance charges.

Speaking of unlimited calls, do note that it falls under Skype’s Fair Usage Policy, meaning that it’s solely for individual use (no telemarketing and the like) and calls longer than 2 hours will automatically be disconnected. For most users, I reckon this shouldn’t be a problem.

Head over to Skype’s Special offer page to activate your free month.

Here’s what you’ll get

  • One month of free unlimited calls, worth $13.99.
  • Calls to mobiles in seven countries, including the USA, Canada and Hong Kong.
  • Unlimited calls to landlines in over 40 countries.
  • Call when you want, day and night, seven days a week.
  • No obligation — try it for a month and cancel at any time.

We’ve covered a number of Stacksocial deals on TMA before, but their latest offer really is quite fantastic. Following in the footsteps of the Humble Bundle, the The Name Your Own Price Mac Bundle lets you choose how much you want to pay for these great Mac apps, 10% of which will go to a charity of your choice.

That’s right. We’ve partnered with 9 of the world’s finest Mac App developers to bring you the first-ever Name Your Own Price Mac Bundle. You pay what you want for six different Mac Apps that will make you faster and more efficient on your Mac including

Basically, if you decide to pay say, $5, you’ll end up getting iDocument, Jaksta, skEdit, iClip, Sparkbox, and MacCleanse. But if you  dishout more than the average (currently $12.28), you’ll also end up getting MacFlux 4 (a more than capable and easy to use website builder), Typinator 5, and ForkLift 2. Of course, you can simply pay the $49 recommended price, or even the “leaderboard” price – where your name will get to shine on well, the leaderboard. The total value of this bundle is $340.

If you do want to snag all 9 apps but only want to pay the bare minimum, don’t procrastinate and grab the bundle ASAP as the average will only keep rising.

Many Japanese audio companies don’t distribute headphones (let alone other audio equipment) overseas. It is is a flying shame since brilliant products such as the Victor/JVC FX500 can’t be sampled by international buyers unless at extravagant importer prices. The Japanese exporter, Seyo-Shop, manage to supply eager international hands with Japanese headphone gems which otherwise would cost an arm, leg and part of your jaw to buy.

Buying from Seyo has a few strong advantages

  1. selection: there are dozens of domestic releases which cannot be found elsewhere under one roof.
  2. price: Seyo serve up great prices for international buyers: from headphone deals to excellent international shipping rates, they are ahead of the curve.
  3. shipping: Seyo ship via the world’s defacto express postal service, EMS who are unrivalled for cost, speed, and ensuring the safe and reliable delivery of your product.
  4. guarantee: if your product suffers manufacturer’s defect, purchases from Seyo are guaranteed for up to one year.

Look below for some good deals from Seyo Shop.

Audio Technica are one of the world’s largest manufacturers of headphones with some of the highest end full size, portable over-the-ear, and inner ear monitors on the planet. Thanks to Seyo’s deals, they can be had for a song in comparison to many large importers’ prices.

ATH-CKM70

HP-SeyoShop-AT-CKM70-01

Price: USD $99.48
Shipping: Europe $15 — North America/Oceania $12 — Asia $9

ATH-CK10
HP-SeyoShop-AT-CK10-02

Price: USD $239.17
Shipping: Europe $15 — North America/Oceania $12 — Asia $9

By the way, the CK10 is a true trump card in the world of high-end dual balanced armature earphones. Not only is it extremely small, but well built in high quality rubber and metal with a cable which is stronger than any competing brand. What it lacks is the Westone-grade strain relief; but otherwise, it is simply stunning. Of course, sound quality is up to snuff, and if you can find Victor foamies, the CK10 is one of the most comfortable earphones on the market.

Victor/JVC – While not the headphone mogul that Audio Technica are, Victor/JVC make some of the best-in-class headphones in the world. One is the fabulous DX1000 which competes with Audio Technica’s high-end wood headphones. But today, I will point out the FX500 (TouchMyApps review here), a headphone which has stirred the sub 150$ waters at headfi for over a year.

HP-FX500

HP-SeyoShop-FX500-03

Price: USD $136.50
Shipping: Europe $15 — North America/Oceania $12 — Asia $9
