Happy 5th birthday, Russian Roulette! Russian Roulette…



Happy 5th birthday, Russian Roulette!

Russian Roulette premiered on radio stations worldwide on October 20, 2009 and was released as the album’s lead single on October 27, 2009 through Def Jam Recordings. Written and produced by Ne-Yo and Chuck Harmony, “Russian Roulette” is a pop and R&B ballad that contains dark, haunting, morbid, and tense atmospheric elements.

"Russian Roulette" received generally positive reviews from music critics, with many praising Rihanna’s vocal performance and the song’s lyrics. The song received commercial success, reaching number one in Israel, Norway, Slovakia and Switzerland. It also charted within the top ten of eighteen other countries worldwide, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Spain and Sweden. The song reached number two on the UK Singles Chart and number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100. It also topped the UK R&B and US Hot Dance Club Songs charts.

The song’s accompanying music video, directed by Rihanna’s regular collaborator Anthony Mandler, includes dark imagery depicting Rihanna playing a game of the titular Russian roulette with the character of actor Jesse Williams, with a revolver. Other scenes include Rihanna in the woods where she is run over by a car, in a gas chamber, in a padded cell, and shots being fired at her underwater. “Russian Roulette” has been performed on both sides of the Atlantic, including on the sixth series of The X Factor in the United Kingdom, and on the Late Show with David Letterman in the United States. The song was included on Rihanna’s Last Girl on Earth Tour (2010–11).

Samsung 4K on a Budget, Gunnar Optiks, and More Deals

Samsung 4K on a Budget, Gunnar Optiks, and More Deals

Samsung's 4K monitor is one of the best deals in tech, and it's an even better deal than usual right now. Unlike most budget-minded 4K panels, this one actually runs at 60Hz over DisplayPort. [Samsung 28" 4K Display, $550]

If you don't have the cash for a 4K display, or the hardware to drive it, a 2560x1440 QHD monitor is pretty great compromise. [ WASABI-MANGO QHD275 Dual HDMI 27-Inch LED 2560x1440 S-IPS QHD Monitor, $270]

"If you experience eyestrain, they are probably worth it." - Lifehacker

I've never worn my Gunnar Optiks for gaming, and probably never will. "Eye strain" is a subjective and also somewhat vague concept. What I know is that if I'm tired (and my eyes are tired by extension), that my Gunnar Optiks make my experience in front of a monitor exponentially better. I'm wearing them as I type this. -Shane

Often checking in at $100, the Wi-Five Full Rim Onyx frames are among Gunnar's most expensive, but today, you can get a pair for just $65. [ Gunnar Optiks Wi-Five Full Rim Onyx Computer Glasses, $65]

Don't want to spend quite that much? The Intercept frames are also cheaper than usual today. [Gunnar Optiks Intercept Full Rim Computer Glasses, $51]

Samsung 4K on a Budget, Gunnar Optiks, and More Deals

Update: Amazon has sold out at the promotional price, but B&H still has the year-older model for $110.

It's no secret that GoPro dominates the action cam market, but Sony's AS30V is a very solid competitor, and is over half off today.

Gizmodo's most recent action cam roundup pegged the Sony as a respectable third place finisher, but at its full $300 MSRP, I'd probably recommend you get a GoPro. Today only though, Amazon's selling the Sony for just $140, which is within the range of many budget-minded action cams (including the $130 GoPro HERO), but with features more becoming of a high-end device, including:

  • SteadyShot image stabilization reduces blur
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and one touch NFC for remote control and viewing via smartphone1
  • 6 video modes including 1080/60p HD and 4x slow motion

This price is only available today, or until sold out, so don't waste any time. [ Amazon]

Update: B&H coincidentally has the previous generation Sony HDR-AS15 on sale for $110 today. Its waterproof housing is heavier (though it can actually go deeper), it only takes 2 megapixel stills (compared to the AS30V's 12), and it lacks built-in GPS, but otherwise it's pretty similar. Can't go wrong either way.

Twitter isn't a bonus for us, it's an essential component of our coverage. It's the fastest way we can let you know about a deal, and many of our best deals only make it to Twitter because they're so short-lived. You can also set up push notifications just for our deals right in the Twitter app (hit the star on our account page, or the gear icon to find the option), or create an account just to follow along without having to participate in Twitter at all.
