Last week a group of developers banded together to celebrate pricing freedom by launching the Because We May promotion.

Developers Celebrate Pricing Freedom By Discounting A Slew Of Apps Now Until June 1st
A group of developers have banded together to celebrate their freedom to price their games how they like within specific online stores. Most online app stores give developers this freedom, but others such as the Amazon App Store do not.

Radio Shack Offering $50 Off All iPhone 4 iPhone 4Ses On Any Carrier [Deals]
Seemingly in response to word that three new small regional carriers were going to be offering the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with a $50 discount, RadioShack has just announced that they’ll be matching the offer.
Starting immediately, if you buy an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S at RadioShack, you’ll get $50 off the normal price on all carriers. That means that the iPhone 4S will be priced at $149/$249/$349 and the iPhone 4 will be available for $49.
If you’re in the market for an iPhone, this is a pretty killer deal. Better act soon, though: the offer ends at the end of June.
