Gaming is one of the things Amazon touted quite a bit for Fire TV, and the company released an exclusive title called Sev Zero to show off everything its set-top box can do. The game is a mixture of tower defense and action shooter, which offers a unique blend of gameplay.

The company also released a companion app for the Kindle Fire HDX, which allows a two player co-op experience where the second player offers air support for player one.

When it comes to affordable, off-contract handsets, BLU is one of my favorite phone manufacturers on the market. The company offers a myriad of devices to fit a wide range of budgets, and today's release features a couple of new handsets for those looking to pick up a smartphone for around $150 or less. As always with BLU, that's an off-contract price.

These two new phones – the Studio C Mini and Studio 5.0 C HD – are made to compete directly with Motorola's budget devices, the Moto E and Moto G, respectively.

If you're looking for a good, affordable device, it's hard to beat the Moto G. It's running KitKat, has a very one hand-able 4.5-inch display, and now comes with LTE. On Amazon, this little guy will set you back $220, but it looks like Best Buy is trying to get rid of some backstock, as it recently dropped the price to $180. That's an LTE-enabled Motorola device running KitKat for less than two hundred monies.

If you're ready for a heaping helping of stable CyanogenMod, you're in luck, because that's exactly what's available on tonight's all-you-can-flash Sunday buffet. The CM team started pushing the M9 build of CM 11 this evening, which puts this one about a month out from the M8 build. I'm sure you flashaholics are itching to hit the recovery menu, so grab this badboy and get flashing.

By now, you've probably heard a lot about Amazon's Fire Phone. I figure that most people aren't really curious about what the overall phone is like – if you've used a Kindle Fire/HD/HDX then you already know. It's about Amazon services and a weird launcher layout thing. Most people are curious about the four front-facing cameras and Dynamic Perspective. I'm with you on that – that's exactly what I was curious about before getting this phone for review.

5. Runtastic Orbit 2

There are lots of fitness bands to choose from: the Jawbone UP, Fitbit Flex, Nike Fuelband...and many others. If you're a Runtastic user, however, there's a new one on the market that may interest you, the Runtastic Orbit. As you may have already guessed, this one is built from the ground up for use with Runtastic's services – running, cycling, etc. It doesn't yet work with the company's dedicated cycling apps (road biking, mountain biking), but support for those is currently in the works.

At the end of last year, I reviewed BACtrack's police-grade Bluetooth mobile breathalyzer. I came away extremely impressed (and drunk), but it was quickly pointed out in the comments that $150 is pretty pricey for such a gadget. While the price has since dropped to $120, it's still out of many users' reach. Good news! Touch of Modern is selling it for $90 till August 3rd. That's a solid deal.

It's no big secret that I'm a huge fan of NVIDIA's SHIELD. In fact, I believe I called it my favorite device from last year on a recent podcast, a claim that I readily stand behind. To me, it shows how versatile Android can be, despite the fact that the unit itself is essentially a one trick pony (it's damn good at that one trick, though).

Then there's NVIDIA's second foray into device design, the Tegra Note 7.

We've heard rumblings about a possible Netflix-like service for books provided by Amazon, and now that service has come to fruition. It's called Kindle Unlimited, and it essentially offers customers access to over 600,000 titles from the Kindle Library and 2,000 on Audible, with unlimited reading or listening on both for roughly $10 a month.

Of course, Amazon isn't the only one offering a service like this, as Oyster just launched its all-you-can-read book buffet last month for the same price.

Here's the scenario: you're trying to explain something over the phone to your mom, coworker, friend, roommate, or some other person and they just don't get it. This can push even the most docile human being into a fit of frustrated rage, but now there's a solution. It's called Clarisketch, and it's so brilliant I'm not sure why no one thought of it before.

The concept is simple: take a picture, draw on it while recording a voiceover, then share it with the aforementioned bonehead.
