The Samsung Galaxy S8 outshines the iPhone 7 in many ways. But one of them won't be price. The base model S8 will cost at least $71 more than the cheapest iPhone 7, according to carrier pricing announced shortly after the Galaxy S8's unveiling today (March 29).
Apple's computers don't come on sale very often, so if you can't weasel a student discount, you're probably going to be stuck paying full retail price. Even when prices do drop, it's normally on old models that are being discontinued.
So, when a store has a sale on every version of the new MacBook Pro and the Mac Mini, you'd be well advised to take note and go find your credit card.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro, with and without Touch Bar, is likely going to be the most popular deal here. Apple positioned the $1,500 13-inch Pro as a replacement for the MacBook Air with a little more power, but that pricetag makes it a difficult sell for students or anyone else who's not sure they need a $1,500 laptop.
At $1,300 from B&H, it's a much better deal. So is the 13-incher with Touch Bar, which is also $200 off, bringing the entry-level price down to $1,600. For that, you get a Core i5, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. If you need the same power but a little more space, you can also level up to the $1,800 version with a 512GB SSD.
The biggest saving is reserved for the 15-inch MacBook Pro. One of the nicer versions is $300, as $2,800 will now get you a Core i7, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and an AMD Radeon Pro 460 discrete graphics card.
If you don't live in NY or NJ, there's also the savings on tax to consider. B&H doesn't collect sales tax when shipping to other states, so you could stand to save a bunch more cash on top of the sale price.

On Wednesday, March 29, Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric spoke with Bo Copley, an out of work coal miner, who got the attention of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail when he pressed her on her policies concerning coal mining jobs. Copley and Couric discussed President Trump’s new executive order that unwinds former President Obama’s policies to curb carbon emissions that contribute to climate change and his thoughts on the future of the coal mining industry as renewable energy and automation are on the rise.

If you're going to do a themed wedding — particularly a Game of Thrones wedding — you better get it right. Well, sometimes miracles do happen and we all feel really bad about making fun of themed weddings. Case in point: the Game of Thrones wedding shoot Katie Lee of Katherine Elena Photography recently helped to design. The photographer took pains to make sure every detail accurately reflected the show for couples who wanted to follow the theme. While it didn't include an actual couple getting married, the stylized wedding conception will surely inspire many lovebirds in the Seven Kingdoms and beyond. SEE ALSO: Everything we know about 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Lee explained her process: "The gowns had a lot to do with finding a happy medium between fantasy and wedding as well," Lee told Mashable. "We knew that we wanted some sort of cape for Austen (who was playing Daenarys) with a very ethereal dress. For Courtney (playing Sansa), we wanted something regal and girly, but very strong. The velvet was the perfect fabric for that and the fur cuffs and stole along with the long train were perfect for her. " Image: katherine elena photography The wedding shoot was filmed at an actual "Castle" in the Blue Ridge mountains. Lee wanted to make a wedding that was simultaneously fantastical but realistic so that other couples could incorporate the theme into their weddings. "I also really wanted to highlight the strong women of the show and show off their grace and beauty, but also their power," Lee said.

As the first quarter of 2017 comes to a close, thousands of consumers are still desperately searching for Nintendo's two latest consoles: the Switch and the NES Classic Edition. In fact, it's probably even more than that, considering how quickly they sell out every time they come back in stock, but the point is that a lot of people that want these machines haven't yet had a chance to buy them.
Thankfully, Nintendo is still producing and shipping more units at a respectable pace, which is why you might be able to grab a Switch or an NES Classic Edition (or both) at Best Buy on Wednesday.
Best Buy revealed via a tweet on Tuesday night that both the Switch and the NES Classic Edition would be available on Best Buy's website starting at noon CT (1:00 PM ET) on Wednesday. The tweet specifically refers to "limited quantities," so you'll need a quick trigger finger to have a chance to secure one.
Despite the amount of time that has passed since the release of the NES Classic Edition, the retro console is still selling for close to three times its retail value on eBay. Many Switch listings are floating around $500 as well, so rather bidding on one of these consoles, keep an eye out for these announcements.
If you aren't able to dedicate the time to grab a Switch or an NES Classic from Best Buy today, you can always use this stock tracking site to keep an eye on other retailers for Nintendo's consoles in the future.
