Earlier this month LG let the G3 Stylus slip out in an ad, though at the time we weren't exactly sure what the device was. Now we know, because LG made it official. Spoiler: it's not as cool as you hoped. I promise.

So the G3 Stylus looks like a G3 with a stylus, and it packs some of the features that makes the G3 cool, but it's not a G3 with a stylus.

If you were a Lastpass Premium user before earlier today, you may have noticed something peculiar: the latest Chrome Beta update broke autofill. This was especially obnoxious if you used the feature frequently, but today we deliver good news: Lastpass fixed it.

Apparently the feature was killed in Chrome when Google patched a bug that allowed any app to open a web page and silently load JavaScript, which is potentially dangerous.

Sometimes you just need to charge everything you own at the same time. And when that happens, you have two options: a cluster of cables all in one place, or cables tethered to wall warts all over the house. Personally, I strongly dislike both of these options. I need the organization in my life.

The CYSPO OmniStation wants to save me, you, and everyone else with at least $80 to throw at a Kickstarter campaign from this charging hell.

We've often talked about the benefits of having Avast Mobile Security installed, which includes its top-notch anti-theft solution. It looks like a lot of folks listened, because the app just hit 100 million downloads. As a celebration of this milestone, we've teamed up with Avast to give away not one, not two, but five Nexus 5s to five lucky winners. A premium Avast license will also be included with each device, so you can keep your new gadget safe.

Back in December of last year, we took a look at the BACtrack Mobile Bluetooth breathalyzer, a police-grade drunk-o-meter. While we believe it to be pretty dang accurate, it's undeniably pricey at $130 (though it was $150 at the time of the review), which puts it outside of what most people are willing to spend on what can really only be defined as a novelty item.

Despite being "police-grade," BACtrack devices are not intended to be used as a metric for deciding when it's OK to drive.

If you hopped on the I want a really big HTC phone train, then you probably have a One Max. If that One Max also happens to be on Verizon, it's time to start checking for updates, because Sense 6 is rolling out now. Woo for you.

This update doesn't appear to have much else going for it, as the device is already running Android 4.4.2, but I guess a major revision to the custom skin is nothing to scoff at.

You know what this world needs? More huge Android tablets. I'm talking full-on monitor-replacements. Or small TVs. Let's throw portability out the window in favor of bigger screens. I like it. Fuhu gets that, so it just announced two new massive nabi tablets: the nabi Big Tab HD 20 and Big Tab HD 24.

Like the names suggest, these are 20 and 24-inches, respectively. Big ol' tablets that are designed with family time in mind.

chromecast

On my list of "most annoying things in the world," videos that autoplay upon visiting a website come in at a solid third place. And here lately, it's been an ongoing battle for me and a lot of other users, because YouTube seemingly forsook us and started autoplaying videos all over the web.

Well, that's what we thought, anyway.

Turns out it's not exactly a YouTube issue – it's the Chromecast Chrome extension.

simple

If you're a Simple customer, then you probably already know that the company has been making major changes to its service as of late (and if you don't, you should probably start paying more attention to your bank). While the majority of that has been behind-the-scenes, today's app update is a very forward-facing change. Simple v2.0 is now available for both iOS and Android, which brings a complete revamp of the app to both platforms.

Since the dawn of time, humans have faced a real struggle: the relentless grip of cable companies. When it comes to TV, cable providers know they have you in a corner – all your favorite shows come on different channels, and you're going to shell out all the dollars necessary to get in on the pseudo-action. This is our spiritual war.

Over the past few years, a bold, brave few have journeyed outside of the norm, metaphorically cutting the cord and leaving cable providers in the dust.
