Where there’s a novelty, there’s a watch for that. We’ve all see the many ways people bring the classic arcade cabinet back to life, but this one has to take the cake in ridiculousness. ThinkGeek, purveyor of many geek novelty toys, has just revealed a watch that looks like a miniature arcade cabinet on your wrist.

While the bulky, 1970s gaming machine made up the childhood of millions of adults, this watch may bring back the nostalgia at the cost of your wrist. It’s made up of a stainless steel arcade cabinet strapped to a leather wristband. It features a button that, when pressed, lights up the display and makes what ThinkGeek says is a “Pew pew PEW!” sort of noise. It also has a joystick, though it doesn’t do anything unless “use your imagination” counts. But it does tell the time.

This clunky analog watch will set you back $60, and it isn’t rechargeable, so you’ll have to break out the button cell batteries when the Pew Pew sound dulls to a pew. We’re not sure if this watch is worth three Jacksons, but hey, it’s still pretty cool.

Best refurbished iPad deals: Get an iPad with warranty for $109
Woman Using 2021 iPad Pro 11-inch

Apple makes some of the best tablets on the market, and if you're creative, then you've likely worked or own an iPad, with some of the best iPads being a staple of creative folks. Of course, being the best does mean that you have to pay a premium price, and while you could grab one of these iPad deals, they'll still be quite expensive. That's where these refurbished iPads come into play since they tend to be significantly cheaper and, most of the time, just have cosmetic issues rather than anything that has to do with the tablet. Not only that, but going for a refurbished iPad is better for the environment since it helps reduce e-waste, and this is one of the reasons we've gone out and collected some of our favorite refurbished iPad deals below.

The Galaxy S25 will fix a big mistake Samsung made with the Galaxy S24
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra in Titanium Gray in hand.

We’re still a little bit away from when Samsung is expected to launch the Samsung Galaxy S25 in January. At the moment, we’re anticipating Samsung’s latest foldables -- the Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 -- to arrive on July 10 during a Samsung event in Paris. However, a new leak from Ming-Chi Kuo has tipped some details about the Galaxy S25 specs.

As expected, the Samsung Galaxy S25 will pack the latest and greatest hardware with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. According to Kuo, Qualcomm will be the sole supplier of the S25, unlike the previous year, when it only supplied 40% of the chips for the S24. That means there will not be different Qualcomm and Exynos models scattered across the global market, which should reduce the performance difference experienced by users. The Exynos 2500 may simply not be ready to ship due to a lower-than-expected 3nm yield.

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
We loved the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 when we reviewed it in 2023 and it currently tops our list of the best folding phones around. It has a similar design to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 before it, but it’s more refined. It’s much lighter and thinner, while it has a hinge design which folds completely flat meaning there’s no more gap between the displays at the hinge. It all feels far classier and more polished.
