Perhaps you noticed that I was a little light on post activity last week – that's because I was on a road trip to visit my family in Virginia. Just before I left, Arkon contacted me about a new product in their car mount lineup: the IntelliGrip NFC Car Mount ($35). Considering the timing, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to give it a shot.

Basically, the NFC Mount is nothing more than Arkon's Slim-Grip Holder, but it has an embedded, re-writable NFC chip inside.

Avast's Android offering has been a top-notch product since it was released, and the company has put in a lot of hard work to continuously make it better since then. Recently, it launched some Premium features for its Mobile Security app, which offer some incredible functionality for only two bucks a month ($15 if you pay for a full year). Before we get into our newest Mega Giveaway with avast!, let's take a closer look at some of the features unlocked in Mobile Security Premium.

If you're running a stock, rooted Galaxy Note II or Galaxy S 4 and want easy access to some things that normally require manually editing system files, we've got the app for you. It's called Note 2 Hidden Settings, and does exactly what you'd expect: offers access to otherwise hidden system settings.

Aside from requiring root access, the app is simple enough to use – just install it and run with it.

If you're looking for a good throw-in-your-bag tablet with an excellent form factor and beautiful display, it's hard to beat Amazon's 8.9-inch Kindle Fire. Sure, it doesn't have the Play Store, and belongs in a completely different playing field than something like the Nexus 7, but for a consumption tablet, it can deliver the goods with the best of 'em thanks to Amazon's massive collection of Kindle books and quick access to Instant Video for Prime members.

Automatic app updates are a convenient way to stay up-to-date. The problem is, not everyone wants every app to update automatically. Thus, the Play Store has had an option for a while to disable automatic updates for specific applications, which could then be manually updated at the user's discretion.

However, therein laid another problem: the "Update All" option ignored this setting, and, once tapped, updated all apps with new versions available – including those that were set to not auto-update.

Have you heard Fran Bow's story? It's a tragic tale of a tortured girl who lost both of her parents in a violent manner – they were hacked to pieces. Naturally, she's traumatized by the event, but there's more to this story than meets the eye.

That's essentially the premise of Killmonday's upcoming game Fran Bow, a point-and-click horror adventure title that hit Indiegogo seeking funding about a month ago.

If the Galaxy Note II isn't what you'd call "big," and you'd feel much more comfortable using something like a Nexus 7 as your phone, then perhaps the Galaxy Mega may be just what the doctor ordered. While the Mega isn't a new phone in terms of international availability, Samsung has just announced that the massive 6.3-inch device will be making its way to the States eventually. This comes as no surprise, as we've already seen both AT&T and Sprint versions of the device.

The amount of Bluetooth speakers on the market could easily boggle one's mind, with more manufacturers getting in the game every day. And while there are many worthy competitors in this somewhat-crowded market, one of our favorites in the "small and portable" category is easily the Braven 600 –  a small speaker with a lot to offer.

Today, we're taking a look at the 600's big brothers, and Braven's competitors with Jawbone's Big Jambox: the 850 and 855s ($300 each).

Google Now is quickly becoming an excellent aggregator for all the information that most users need on a regular basis – be it weather, that day's schedule, tracking shipments, and so much more. Aside from its already-useful functionality, though, Google has been working towards making most actions voice-searchable. For example, you can tell Now to set a reminder, play a particular artist in Music, and more. Today's Search update brings more voice actions to existing functions, making it even easier get quick access to important information:

  • Flights: Ask Google “Is my flight on time?” to get info on your upcoming flights and live status on your current flights.

If there are two words that can quickly get people excited, it's "free money." And we just so happened to have some to give away, thanks to Venmo. Haven't heard of Venmo? Here's the skinny: it's a quick, easy, and efficient way to instantly send money to friends. Kind of like Paypal, but without the Paypal-ness of it all – it's all just very simple and straightforward.

The fees are also extremely reasonable: transferring money from your Venmo balance is free, as are payments funded by U.S.
