Need an iPod touch? Target will give you a $15 gift card with purchase and golly gosh gee-wize, could XCOM for iOS actually get better? If you are back to school shopping in any of 10 mostly southern states, then you should by all means enjoy the tax-free savings.

Buy an iPod Touch 16GB MP3 Player ($229) at Target and a $15 Target Card. If that’s not enough savings for ya, do what I would do — buy a refurbished iPod touch — straight cash discount, boom.

Here’s an interesting gimme. In the Apple Store App, navigate to a store page (Stores >) and the top item under picture, location and open hours will be “A game for you on us.” Today’s freebie, one assumes there will be more, is Color Zen, which otherwise sells for $0.99.

XCOM for iOS: Content Update, Price Cut

Best mobile game of the year? At the very least it will be named best mobile shooter of the year.

There is an update for XCOM for iOS (iPhone, iPad) and it includes the fresh Second Wave expansion. Best of all, the price has been reduced by $5 to $14.99 — double score, publisher Firaxis knows how to market.

Lastly, want to give your departing student, or parents, a constant remind of yourself? Germany’s Twinkind can 360-degree scan you and 3D print a photo realistic figurine of you for a paltry $300.
