As part of Bestbuy.com’s Deal of the Day, you can now save 20% on Apple iTunes Codes. They’re essentially gift cards, but in digital form. Once purchased, a redeem code will be sent your way via email, where you can use it to buy music, movies, tv shows, audiobooks and games on iTunes. This also means that international iOS users with a US iTunes account can also take advantage of this offer. The “cards” start at $15 (now $12) and go all the way up to $100 (now $80). The deal is set to end by midnight tonight, so if you want to pick up some $0.99 games from Gameloft and this recent roundup, better not procrastinate. You can visit the 20% off landing page here.
Update: It doesn’t look like this deal will work for those without a US credit card. It seems international credit cards can be used to purchase other Bestbuy items, but not iTunes gift cards/codes.

Meanwhile, SEGA’s well received SAMURAI BLOODSHOW, a card-based strategy/defense game with unique visuals, has also dropped to $0.99 (down from $4.99).

ReaddleDocs, one of the most popular and versatile file manager apps for the iPhone, has just been updated to version 3.1.
Among it’s most obvious change is the complete redesign of the interface, which quite frankly, looks significantly better than the previous versions. Other additions include a now separate iCloud Tab, a new Recents folder and playlists support and background mode for its MP3 player. This update is now available on the App Store and free for those who’ve already purchased it. Otherwise, this excellent file manager will set you back $4.99. Full list of “What’s new” can be found below.

Most owners of the the new iPad have likely noticed that the back of the device gets noticeably warmer after about 20-30 minutes of use. Well, Dutch site Tweakers.net have taken the liberty to find out just how much hotter the new iPad runs compared with its predecessor. After running GLBenchmark for 5 minutes, the site took thermal images with an infrared camera on both tablets and measured their hottest zones. On the new iPad, the rear right (lower) area reached 33.6 degrees Celcius (92.5 Fahrenheit) while the iPad was recorded at 28.3 C (82.9 F).
