Can you ever have too many sales? Black Friday and Cyber Monday are swell, but there are still 365 days in a year, most of which do not offer you great deals on the latest goods. Amazon has taken its next step toward a veritable calendar of sales with Digital Day, during which Amazon users can get discounts on an assortment of digital goods, including movies, albums, video games, and so on. The sheer number of items on sale may be overwhelming, however, so we’ve rounded up some of the best deals.

Music

Bon Iver — 22, A Million ($5)

Image used with permission by copyright holder

The latest release from Bon Iver finds singer-songwriter Justin Vernon drowning his plaintive voice amid dense instrumentation. The heavily electronic sound may be a radical departure from the acoustic songs Bon Iver was once known for, but the result is an album of mournful — and occasionally transcendent — beauty.

Amazon

A Tribe Called Quest — We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service ($5)

Image used with permission by copyright holder

One of hip-hop’s foundational groups reunited in 2016 for its first album in nearly 20 years. We Got It From Here… will feel immediately familiar to fans, with a warm mix of funk, jazz, and rap that belies the album’s textured production and intricate lyrics. The late Phife Dawg would be proud.

Sturgill Simpson — Metamodern Sounds in Country Music ($5)

On Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, country-music psychonaut Sturgill Simpson breathes new life into a genre many may find stale, blending old-school outlaw riffs with lush production. The album is a celebration of traditional styles, yes, but it’s also one that looks to the future.

Amazon

Movies & Television

Hell or High Water ($8)

This modern Western stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster as bank-robbing brothers, and Jeff Bridges as the lawman trying to catch them. Beautifully shot and acted, Hell or High Water has a quiet intensity that sets it apart from most of today’s crime films.

Amazon

Star Trek Beyond ($7)

The latest Star Trek film finds Kirk (Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), and a familiar Enterprise crew stranded without their ship. Scattered on a wild planet, they must come together and battle a devious foe (pyrotechnics and humor in tow).

Games

Life is Strange — Complete Season ($5)

Image used with permission by copyright holder

This episodic adventure game casts players as a teenager who develops the ability to rewind time. She uses this power to try and solve problems, but soon discovers there are wild consequences. Life is Strange was released in 2015, sure, but it remains one of the better story-driven games for any platform.

Amazon

Final Fantasy VI ($8, Android only)

Image used with permission by copyright holder

One of the best entries in the long-running Final Fantasy franchise, FFVI task players with exploring a vibrant world that’s brimming with powerful enemies. The game also has a large cast of unique characters, whose stories diverge and intersect frequently. The killer soundtrack is just a plus.

Tomb Raider ($5)

This reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise reimagines protagonist Lara Croft as a young archaeology student who is forced to survive in the wilderness after an expedition to the mythical island of Yamatai goes awry. Players must forage for supplies and gear throughout a host of vivid environments, while using Lara’s skill to deal with dangers both human and otherwise. Thankfully, the game’s combat is as great as the Croft’s own evolution.

Amazon

Madden NFL 2017 ($30, PlayStation 4 edition only)

Image used with permission by copyright holder

The latest in this popular football series allows gamers to take control of their favorite players and teams for the current season. The game includes a variety of single and multiplayer modes that should keep players entertained until the next installment lands in August. Let’s just hope your favorite tight end doesn’t grace the cover — the Madden Curse is a thing.

Amazon

Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition ($5)

Image used with permission by copyright holder

The Saints Row franchise is essentially Grand Theft Auto taken to its most extreme, and Saints Row IV is the most outlandish game yet, one that puts players in control of a gang-leader-turned-President who must thwart an alien invasion. With tons of zany side missions and an arsenal odd weapons, Saints Row IV is one of the best open-world games in years.

JPEG vs. PNG: When and why to use one format over the other
A person using Adobe Lightroom CC on an iMac.

In digital imaging, two image formats prevail above all else: JPEG (or JPG) and PNG.

At first glance, a single image shown in both formats might seem identical, but if you look closely enough and dig into the data, there is quite a difference between them. One format isn't always better than the other, as each is designed to be used in specific circumstances based on your needs for image quality, file size, and more. Here's what you need to know about both formats to make the most of their strengths and weaknesses.
What is the JPEG format?
Short for Joint Photographic Experts Group -- the team that developed the format -- JPEG has become the standard compressed format in digital photography and online image sharing due to its careful balance of file size and image quality.

Is there a Walmart Plus free trial?
There is a Walmart Plus free trial available, and it’s one of the best free trials we’ve seen in terms of how many great features and conveniences you’re able to access.

The 13 best early Black Friday deals you can shop this weekend
Digital Trends Best Black Friday Deals

Even though Black Friday is still a couple of weeks away, we're already starting to see a lot of great deals on several different types of products. So, if you can't wait for the upcoming Black Friday and need to grab a few things now, we've collected some of our favorite deals across products and budget ranges to make your life a little bit easier. Below, you'll find deals on cordless vacuums, laptops, TVs, headphones, and phones, so it's a great collection of stuff that we think you'll find useful and want to grab. That said, if you can't find what you want, be sure to check our main Black Friday deals page for even more great offers.
Wyze Cordless Stick Vacuum -- $98, was $150

While budget cordless vacuum cleaners can sometimes not be that great, we found the Wyze Cordless Stick Vacuum to be surprisingly good for its price point. At just 2.8 pounds of weight, it's light enough that you won't feel like you're doing a workout every time you use it, and it is great for those who might have issues with arm weakness. Just because it's light doesn't mean it's not powerful, though, with two motors providing 24,000 pascals of suction, which is quite a lot at this price. It also has a HEPA filter to keep the air you breathe clean while vacuuming, which is impressive, but sadly, it does have a big downside in that it only lasts for about 50 minutes of vacuuming. That's not necessarily a dealbreaker, and you can buy a backup battery, but it's an important thing to note.
