Best tech and gadget deals this weekend

It’s another long weekend coming up tomorrow, which is why the deals article has been published a day early.

For those of you who only see this on Friday, apologies for breaking schedule – but we know that most people look for great tech and gadget sales while at work, and not on the couch in the comfort of their home on Workers’ Day.

Not that I would know – I work on public holidays and, as a bachelor, I don’t own a couch. Or curtains.

In fact, living alone allows you to avoid buying many unnecessary items, like throw pillows, decorative cushions, photo frames, carpets, armchairs, dining room and coffee tables, and more than two plates, bowls, or glasses.

This does limit your ability to entertain guests, but who needs friends when you have two TVs?

Find your electronic friendship void filler below – happy shopping.
