Limefuel is one of the most popular makers of portable chargers for smartphones and tablets out there, and today we're teaming up with them to give away a OnePlus One 64GB and a host of their awesome charging products, like the Limefuel Blast range, offering anywhere from 6000 to 24000mAh of portable juice.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future.


Granted, it's not a pretty render, but it is a render of LG's upcoming G Watch R - a smartwatch that appears to be sporting a full circular display (no Moto 360 cutout) with more classic chronograph styling. Motorola's Moto 360, on the other hand, is just a sexy circle from the future.

LG's design would seem to appeal to a more traditional watch buyer, someone who wants a smartwatch that looks a lot like, well, a regular watch.


While I don't exactly agree with the principle of teaser videos (say nothing, get free press), they are sometimes hard to ignore, especially when big name tech products are involved. Today's weirdly emotional ode to handwriting comes courtesy of Samsung, reminding you that on September 3rd they'll be Unpacking(TM) a new Galaxy Note.

The Note 3 features prominently in this spot, so the Note 4's appearance at the latest Unpacked event is all but a guarantee at this point.

Crowdfunding complex hardware is risky business, and it seems that risk is something backers of the Kreyos Meteor smartwatch are becoming all too familiar with.

The Kreyos smartwatch (red flag #1) began as a flex-funding campaign (red flag #2) on Indiegogo (red flag #3) in July of 2013. After raising $1.5 million - $1.4 million more than their original goal - Kreyos set to work creating its seemingly well-funded, purportedly unique product.


Update 2: Amir Efrati, author of The Information's report, says Verizon is a lying piece of crap:

Efrati goes on to write that they know for a fact Verizon has been probing carriers, OEMs, and developers about its own Google Play alternative.


The Google Shopping Express app was updated to v2.0 yesterday, though the changes to the app aren't quite what you'd expect for a leading digit bump. The single greatest change to the app would seem to be the addition of notifications, which now allow you to be notified about delivery information for your orders, a key feature the service had been lacking until now.

A new quick-add-to-cart button appears on all product cards now, and the filter UI has received a significant overhaul, now allowing you to filter products not just by store, category, and price, but by brand, type (if applicable), and special features like gluten-free, organic, and others.


If you've been eagerly awaiting the Android 4.4.3 update for your T-Mobile One M8, wait no more: it has arrived. The update brings a slightly newer version of Android, security fixes, wireless optimizations, and updates to several stock HTC applications. If you're not able to pull the update over the air, XDA user sapplegater has uploaded the OTA to Mega.


As always, if your device is rooted this particular update might be one to skip - the ever-present "security fixes" packed in this OTA often plug up exploits that allow root access, and Android roots are becoming increasingly hard to discover as Google and OEMs refine their software.


In a world where Facebook has become so ubiquitous that even hating on Facebook has in and of itself become a tired cultural phenomena, talking about Facebook at all anymore is sort of like lamenting the quality of food at McDonalds - it's there whether you like it or not, so it's probably best to just not say anything at all.

Still, Facebook, like McDonalds, is a part of the daily lives of a great many tens of millions of people (McDonalds claims nearly 70 million), and has seemingly become a requisite cog in the increasingly connected machine that is human existence.

Earlier this morning, US big box electronics retailer Best Buy let the product page for the Moto 360 loose a little early, and with that slipup came some seemingly concrete information. The Moto 360 will cost $250 - a price which likely comes in at or below most estimates we've seen for the device to date.


There's still no solid ship date, but this number has probably sealed the deal for a lot of you in regard to deciding whether or not to purchase a 360.


You've probably been hearing a lot about a disease known as ALS in the last few days, and how CEOs of various tech companies are dumping buckets of chilly H2O on themselves in some misguided attempt to cure said ailment.

ALS, by the way, is a condition you're almost definitely already aware of, especially if you're American - it's more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. ALS is a rebrand by the medical community (and by rebrand, I mean an actual, scientific name), and stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
