The Beats Pill+ Bluetooth speaker has received a notable discount today at two retailers, with the White model specifically getting marked down to one of the lowest price points seen for the device. At both Target and Amazon you can get the Beats Pill+ in White for $116.99, which is over $30 lower than the speaker’s more common sale price of $150. When it first launched in 2015, Apple sold the Beats Pill+ for $230.

The only other color that appears slightly lowered in price as well is Black, but on Target the color has sold out at the time of writing, and on Amazon every other color option is $149.00 and above (you’ll have to add the speakers to your cart to see how much they are). Elsewhere at retailers like Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Newegg the speaker sits at around a similar $149.00 price point, while Apple still sells it for $179.95.
In other Beats sales, Newegg’s official eBay store has the Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones for $197.00, down from $299.00. Colors available include Gloss Black, Gloss White, Rose Gold, and Gold, and there is a limit to three headphones per customer.
The next best prices can be found at Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon, which all have the headphones for about $219.99. Like the Beats Pill+ deal, discounts on the Beats Solo3 headphones at these retailers are mostly focused on one color of the device, this time in Black.

Welcome to another Touchstone Tavern, our weekly roundup of all things Hearthstone [Free]. Last week was quite a fun one as Blizzard is gearing up for this weekend’s BlizzCon, so there were plenty of interesting stories and expansion hints. You see, by this time next week, we’ll know what the next expansion is, and I’m personally very interested to see the direction the developers are planning on heading. There’s talk of more pirates, but I’m not sure the players would be too happy to see that. In general, this past week was a fun one, partly because the Halloween celebrations have also commenced. Enjoy our roundup, and if you see me at BlizzCon, come and say hi. And, because of BlizzCon, we won’t be posting a roundup next week.
BlizzCon’s In-Game Goodie is Legendary Marin the Fox

Battle.net Has New Social Issues, Blizzard Giving Away Pack to Celebrate

Head over here for more details.
Should Death Knight Cards be Removed from Arena?
Many players have expressed the opinion that Death Knights shouldn’t be in Arena because they can often offer an unfair advantage, but, as this article describes, Blizzard isn’t planning n removing them. The developers said that the cards aren’t really that much more powerful than other powerful cards, so they don’t see the need for removing them at the moment. The response from players was that Death Knight cards are in a class of their own. What do you think about Death Knights in Arena? Read the whole story here.
Frodan is one of the most popular Hearthstone personalities and definitely one of the more recognizable voices.

BlizzCon Inn-vitational Might be Hinting at the Next Expansion
During BlizzCon there’s going to be a really entertaining three-part Inn-vitational, and it looks like the team names might be giving away some details on the next expansion. As we talked about in this story, the names of three of the four teams are clearly references to the last three expansions, which leaves the last one as a possible clue for the upcoming expansion, which will have been announced by that point. What do you think?
