The new devices include the PowerWave 7.5W Stand and PowerWave 7.5W Pad, each coming with built-in fans to help keep things cool and the ability to charge iPhones up to an hour faster than other accessories on the market, according to Anker. For a more detailed look at the new Qi-compatible chargers, be sure to read our full review.

Recently, DirecTV Now launched its latest offer for new subscribers, allowing them the chance to get $25 off each month for the first three months of any channel package. For example, you could get the low-tier "Live a Little" package for just $10/month for your first three months, down from $35/month. New subscribers interested can enter the promo code YESNOW3 in the checkout process, but this code is incompatible with DirecTV Now's ongoing Apple TV 4K offer.

In regards to that offer, it's worth noting that we're now entering what is expected to be the last few weeks of DirecTV Now's Apple TV 4K at no cost deal. If you've been on the fence about it, definitely check out our full post on the deal and head over to DirecTV Now to place your order. For those who haven't been following, the offer lets new users prepay for three months of DirecTV Now at $105, and then receive a 32GB Apple TV 4K at no cost.

The Dark Tower was such a disappointment. Don't waste your money on the film, just stick to the books.

I'd say it's worth checking out for a $0.99 rental, especially for book readers who have been avoiding it. I thought it was super disappointing too, but I still found myself having fun every now and then, and seeing a few parts of the book on screen was a thrill. It's not terrible, just aggressively mediocre.

Considering the bundle just for BusyCal. I've always wanted it, but couldn't bring myself to spend $50 on it.
