Roughly 400 million years ago, we used to have these things called photo albums. They looked like oversized books, but instead of pages of text, we'd store physical photos inside. We've heard rumors that some of today's older generation still use these archaic means of storing pictures, though by and large, the modern day of doing things is to snap a ton of digital pictures, transfer them to your hard drive, and promise yourself you'll edit them someday. That day never comes, of course, and eventually you run out of space. What then? That's where today's top deal can come in handy -- it's for a Seagate Expansion 4TB 3.5-inch Desktop External Hard Drive for $130 with free shipping (normally $150 - use coupon code: [EMCPFPB54]).

Titanfall. Thief. The Crew. Mad Max.

We have it on bad authority that the next season of Gold Rush will feature the Hoffman's returning home from the jungle to mine cryptocurrencies. It's going to be an exciting season -- you'll see Todd build his first computer, and when he decides to water cool his rig, hilarity ensues. Parts will fail because he'll insist on buying second-hand from shady sources, and who knows how's going to shove an AGP graphics card into a PCI-E slot! Will you mine more Bitcoin and Litecoin and Whatever coin than the Hoffman next season? If that's your goal -- or you just want a fast gaming card -- then check out today's top deal for an Asus DirectCU II OC Radeon R9 290 Video Card for $471 with free shipping (normally $490 - use coupon code: [EMCPGHE99]).
