Consumers eyeing the iPad Air can shave $50 off the price through a new Best Buy sale.

Running Friday and Saturday only, the sale covers all models of the Air. Those of you looking for something smaller can save $30 off the first-generation iPad Mini.

The retailer is also tempting mobile phone buyers with a variety of deals. Samsung's Galaxy S4 will be free through Verizon on Friday and Saturday and free through AT&T from Friday through Saturday, February 2. The S4 is currently $50 through Sprint, a sale that will end on February 2.

iPhone buyers can save $50 off the 16GB 5S and 5C and $100 off the 32GB 5C now through February 2. All mobile phone prices naturally require the usual two-year agreement.

Preorders for LG's new curved-screen G Flex phone through AT&T will rev up this Friday at Best Buy. Sales for Sprint customers will begin on Friday, January 31. The phone will reach Best Buy retail outlets on Friday, February 7, and will cost $300 with the standard two-year contract.

Finally, Best Buy customers can score at least a $10 gift card by trading in virtually any electronic device, including digital cameras, digital camcorders, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, gaming consoles, and MP3 players. Certain tablets, phones, and gaming systems can qualify for at least a $75 gift card. The device does have to power up and be free of water damage and any cracks in the screen. This latest trade-in deal runs through February 1.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
