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.

YouTube thrives off the videos produced by independent content creators all over the world, and while it compensates many of them through ads, that money is hardly enough to make a living off of in most cases. Earlier this summer Google said that producers would soon have the option to request donations right on their YouTube pages. The feature's live now, so here's a look at how it works.

When you're watching something produced by someone who's willing to accept donations, an icon will appear in the top left corner of the video.

HTCOneE8-Thumb

The HTC One M8 is an Android device that looks and feels premium. However, its price tag suggests the same. If you want the power and features of the Taiwanese manufacturer's flagship smartphone but don't particular need all of that aluminum, Sprint is now offering such a device in the form of the HTC One E8. This more affordable option comes in priced at 24 monthly payments of roughly $20.84, which adds up to $500.

Nexus5-Thumb

The better part of a year has passed since the launch of the Nexus 5, but deals are popping up on eBay as regularly as ever. This time we're looking at the 32GB option available in black or white for $379. That may sound only marginally cheaper than the $399 the phone goes for in the Play Store, but when you factor in the free shipping and the lack of sales tax everywhere except in New York, you are looking at saving at least $50.

Let's think about filters for a moment. They are immensely useful, allowing users to direct (junk) mail from particular senders to the appropriate location (the trash) or apply the correct label (stuff to ignore). Gmail has had the ability to create and manage filters for years, but its app hasn't. In fact, it still lacks this functionality. Yahoo, on the other hand, has rolled the feature into the latest release of its Android app, version 2.6.

Sources are saying that Sprint will soon offer a Sony smartphone in the US for the first time. We can't tell you who these sources are, but they're the kind that have spoken to Reuters and The Wall Street Journal in two separate reports. And the device apparently won't be cheap either. We're talking about an upcoming Xperia flagship. With Sony expected to unveil the Z3 at IFA next week, well, you can fill in the blanks from here.

The Samsung Gear Live launched with a built-in heart rate monitor, but unfortunately, it could only take measurements one at a time. There was no way to monitor a wearer's heart rate continuously, such as during a workout. Now developer Portable Pixels has hit Google Play with an Android app that makes this functionality possible, one that goes by the rather straightforward name of "Heart Rate Training."

The developer's previous creations skew more towards the amusing side, but that doesn't limit the capability of this app.

GalaxyS5-Thumb

Not all updates are created equal. Some are the kind that keep us up at night, leaving us banging on the virtual update button in hopes that it will appear. Others, well, if they had slipped in under the radar, we wouldn't have noticed a difference. AT&T's latest Galaxy S5 update is one of those. This over-the-air software (version G900AUCU2ANG3) bump provides a number of minor enhancements and security patches that, while dandy, aren't the equivalent of putting new rims on that ride.

Five Nights at Freddy's might just be the most nerve-wracking week you will ever experience. In this point-and-click survival horror game, players are responsible for watching over Freddy Fazbear's Pizza between the hours of midnight and 6AM. As it turns out, these just so happen to be the hours that the animatronic robots at this place of amusement and fun happen to wander the halls. They're made of metal and wires, not flesh and blood, yet for some reason they still have the tendency to stick night watch workers in their mouths.

OneDrive-Thumb

Today Microsoft is rolling out updates to its OneDrive app across all three of the big mobile platforms: Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. The full list of changes are detailed in the company's blog post, but ironically, Android tops the page with the most new features while Microsoft's own OS is situated at the bottom, not yet equipped with the features that I am about to share.

The Android version of OneDrive is the first to let people import both a personal and work account.

The Humble Sega Mobile Bundle kicked things off last week with a collection of six games the publisher has released into the Play Store over the years. For any price, buyers could get ChuChu Rocket, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, and Virtua Tennis Challenge. Those who beat the average were rewarded with Crazy Taxi, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, and Episode 2 of Sonic 4. Now, right on schedule, three additional apps have made their way into the bundle.
