Bertel King, Jr.
Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

Google is continuing to shine a brighter light on Hangouts users who are currently online. A few months ago the company brought back the green dot that used to mark online contacts in the days of Google Talk (which was replaced with a subtle green line in Hangouts). Going forward, the messenger in the web version of Gmail will contain a new tab that puts online contacts at the top. It's still possible to message friends who are offline, they're just tucked at the bottom where they're out of the way.

Dear football fans. Remember that makeover that you were too insecure to get? Well one of ESPN's many sports apps is getting it done for you. Not only does the network's College Football app look like a whole new person, it has a new name to boot. ESPN Championship Drive, despite being version 4, wants you to view it as a separate individual.

TeamViewer

TeamViewer is a go-to tool for users who, well, remote access into things enough to have a go-to tool. The software lets someone in location A beam into a smartphone or tablet running the app in location B. It's the kind of thing enterprise support teams can use to keep their coworkers or clients happy. Likewise, it's what that techy person up the street uses to help out all of their confused family members.

Not content to fire back at the competition with just one volley, the company has continued its barrage with two new announcements. For starters, it's opening up family plans from a limit of five to up to ten lines. For most of us, that inherently means we're going to have to look outside of our immediate families to hit the max. It's time to get grandma a smartphone, call up that cheap uncle, and bring in a couple of college-bound cousins.

Normally when we see one of these pay-what-you-want Android game bundles, they come to us from the good ol' reliable Humble Bundle folks. This time around, we're looking at a package of games available from StackSocial.

There are seven games total, though you have to beat the average to get more than two of them. It currently sits at just over $4, but it's sure to rise over the course of the next thirteen days.

The immensely difficult dungeon crawler Wayward Souls is currently up on Amazon for $1.99, one third of its usual price. That makes now a good time to pick up the game and walk away with a few dollars saved and a compelling title to boot. Not only that, buyers also get 60 Amazon Coins back, which amounts to 60 cents. For the math averse, that brings this title down to 140 coins for the people with virtual monies to spend.

An increasing number of users have stumbled across a new navigation card when looking for directions using the Google Search app. Apparently the tech giant has decided to pull the switch that opens this feature up to a wider populace. The card resembles Google Maps: it provides a map with the trip drawn out, the option to select the desired mode of transportation, alternate routes to select from, and a giant blue start button for when it's time to get moving.

Update: The six-month link has now expired. As for the full year offer, well, some existing users are reporting that it isn't working for them either. That promotion is now aimed at new or potential users.

The majority of features that the LastPass password manager offers are available for free, but users still need to go premium for $12 a year to get the full package. That's not an exorbitant fee by any stretch, yet there's a way to put this off for up to a year and a half if you rather save yourself the money.

Remember that Sprint and T-Mobile price war we mentioned? Yeah, things are continuing to get better. Today T-Mobile has announced an add-on to its Simple Starter plan that will significantly increase how much LTE data customers can use. For an extra $5 a month, they can bump their allotment up from 500 MB to 2GB. This amounts to four times the data, and it manages to beat out the 1GB of LTE allowed under T-Mobile's $50 Simple Choice plan.
