Daily Deal: Top Deals Of The Month

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

I'm a in a bit of shock that tomorrow is August 1. The summer's passing by too quickly. We're trying something new today and highlighting two of our top deals from this month. They are both ending soon so grab them while you can.

Soar, swoop, and flip through the air with 58% off of the Striker Spy HD-Camera Drone. This drone comes ready for flight with limited set up out of the box and its internal gyro will keep it steady in most flying conditions. The HD camera can snap shots or film your flight for up to 30 minutes. It's lightweight and durable and you'll be the master of your skies in no time.


Learn all about cloud computing with 89% off of the Amazon Web Services Engineer Bootcamp Bundle in the Deals store. In 24 hours over 4 courses, you will learn everything you need to know to work with Amazon’s hosting platform. By the end of the training, you will be prepared for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect (CSA) associate exam (exam fees not included in the bundle). The bundle covers topics newbies and experts will need in order to increase their skills and add another certification to their resumes.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Hilarious

    Funny how one of the deals of the day is a high-def spy drone given the drone stories this week. It's like the icing on the cake. :)

    See Techdirt, these drones you're selling is all part of a self serving plot. You're hoping that someone would get in trouble with one of them and then you can write about it ;)

      It's called the virtuous circle.

        Re: Re:

        You might start by writing a story about the companies selling these things that never bother to inform their customers that they'd be breaking the law if they happen to be within a Federal No Fly Zone -- which includes such places as virtually the entire Washington D.C. area, as well as any place the President happens to be visiting that particular day.

        And it's not just around airports and cities, even the Bundy Ranch got slapped with a No-Fly-Zone restriction during the time when mini-drones would have been a useful tool for news crews. It might seem very odd that laws (and federal agency decrees) intended for 10 ton aircraft can be applied to 10 ounce toys, but that's the way it appears to be in this paranoid police state we live in.

        The peeping-tom laws most cities have on their books are another issue entirely. It's a fair bet that these mini-drone sellers aren't concerned about that either.

        It's a trend we see time and again, companies that sell products that can easily be misused (especially by children) never seem to be concerned until the government steps in and cracks down on them. Why is it so hard for them to include even a short cautionary note in the ad copy?

          Perhaps things have changed, but every outdoor r/c bird that I've purchased has included a sheet summarizing the laws and a link to where you can find a more complete version.

    The temperature can't drop soon enough for me.
