[Deal Alert] Ultimate Ears BLAST with POWER UP dock down to $179.99 ($90 off), MEGABLAST with dock down to $278.98 ($61 off)

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

We published our review on Ultimate Ears’ BLAST and MEGABLAST exactly one month ago today. They’re good speakers overall, but they’re not without their caveats. One of the most major issues we found is the price; $ 229.99 for the BLAST and $ 299.99 for the MEGABLAST, plus another $ 39.99 for the definitely-needed POWER UP dock, is a lot of dough for an imperfect product in this category. Today, however, Amazon has brought the BLAST and POWER UP bundle’s price down to a much more palatable $ 179.99.

Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST review: Great sound comes at a price

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Those in the market for a Bluetooth speaker in the $ 100-200 range will surely have heard of Ultimate Ears for the company’s popular BOOM 2 and MEGABOOM speakers. But if you’re looking for a newer, more premium alternative, Logitech/Ultimate Ears has come out with the BLAST and MEGABLAST – not replacements for the BOOM series, but upmarket stablemates.

The main talking points of these two new speakers concern Alexa integration and superior sound.

Developer PSA: Appodeal is Giving Away $6,000 Worth of Prizes in “Indie Blast Off” Contest

While there’s a heck of a lot of different awards and contests out there for mobile games, there’s always room for one more, right? Appodeal is a pretty cool SDK developers can use to increase the monetization of their ad-based games by allowing games to run the ads that pay the most across loads of networks. I’ve heard good things about it, and I sort of like how it pits the ad networks against each other. Anyway, they’re running a contest called the “Indie Game Blast Off Contest.” They’re not giving away actual cash, but instead, a bunch of stuff which could be super valuable if you’re trying to get your game off the ground.

The grand prize winner will get 10,000 installs of their game through mobile ads on the network and one on one mentorship with industry experts. Additionally your game will be featured at Indie Prize and in the Appodeal website/news letter. Oh, you’ll also get free access and accommodations for two at the next Casual Connect.

What sets this particular contest apart from most of the ones we post about is they’re looking for games that are live on the App Store. So many of these contests are specifically looking for unreleased stuff because they’re looking to cut publishing deals with the winners. Here it seems like Appodeal just wants to spread the good word of Appodeal. Anyway, if this sounds even remotely like something you’re interested in check out the rules and then apply here.

Logitech announces UE Blast and Megablast Bluetooth speakers with Alexa

Logitech has announced two new Ultimate Ears speakers, the Blast and the Megablast. While on the surface they look like slightly redesigned Boom 2 and Megaboom, both of these new speakers feature Amazon Alexa built-in. Like Amazon’s Echo series of devices, both Blast and Megablast feature Amazon’s voice assistant built-in. Using an array of far-field microphones, the speakers can listen to your queries once you say the magic word, presumably even over the sound of music playing through its speakers. As you’d expect, both speakers have Wi-Fi and need to stay connected to the…

As you might expect from the naming scheme, the MEGABLAST is the larger, more powerful version of the BLAST.

The new UE Blast may be the first great portable Alexa speaker

It’s starting to feel like the biggest threat to Google Assistant establishing a presence around the home is simply being crowded out by a swarm of Alexa gadgets. Today, Ultimate Ears — maker of the very popular Boom line of Bluetooth speakers — announced a new series, the UE Blast, with far-field microphones for Amazon’s Alexa built right in. Both the Blast and its larger, louder sibling the Megablast will begin shipping in late October for $ 229.99 and $ 299.99 respectively. Those prices are significantly higher than the mainstream Boom products, which will remain available for consumers who simply want a take-anywhere Bluetooth speaker.

From the outside, the Blast and Megablast each look basically identical to the Booms before them….
