Amazon has one of my favorite portable police scanners – the Uniden BCD436HP – for an all-time low price. If you have nightmares of owning an older model police scanner and struggling to find the right frequencies, you’ll be happy to know the days of manually programming these receivers are over.
I’ve been wearing an Apple Watch since June 2015. I love the ability to know the weather forecast as well as the easy way I can measure and challenge myself with the activity app.

Currently, two brands (Supcase, i-Blason) are available via Amazon Deal Of The Day. I can’t say for sure these will be the lowest prices you’ll find. But they seem cheaper than the $35 to $55 cases I impulsively buy at retail once my shiny device…
