There's no reason you have to spend big to get your gadget fix. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is usually a $400 device, but you can pick up a refurb for a mere $219.99 on eBay Daily Deals.

Your Flipboard experience is going to change a little bit today. Users of the social-magazine-thing are going to start seeing full-screen video ads, which Flipboard kindly describes as "a deeper brand moment." It's not as annoying as it seems at first, though.

You may have been enjoying Netflix's streaming video service for a few years, but not everyone the world over is so lucky. Netflix announced earlier this year (and clarified in July) that it was going to expand the service into Europe this month, and it's starting with France.

So what's going on in Light in the Darkness? The Totems are (apparently) a race of little gumdrop-shaped creatures that emit light. No need to judge, though. Their offspring have gone missing, and you have to use their luminous powers to spot the youngsters.

Verizon pre-announced its VoLTE service a few weeks ago, but now it's rolling out. Customers can finally start taking advantage of VoLTE calling starting today—that assumes people still make phone calls, which is debatable. You need to have a supported device of course, and there are still a few caveats.

You can only survive under the oppressive yoke of TouchWiz for so long, but today is the day owners of the Samsung Galaxy S5 on Sprint can break free and try a more open experience. CyanogenMod has added support for the Galaxy S5 on Sprint in the form of nightly builds, the first of which is available now.

The 2013 Nexus 7 is still technically the current-gen Nexus tablet from Google. It's for sale in the Play Store and there are a ton of accessories for it. Sure, it's getting a little old, but you can pick one up for a mere $159.99 on eBay right now.

Cisco is one of the premiere makers of networking systems in the world, but the company's newest offering in the Play Store has nothing to do with that. Well, it has very little to do with that. It's a tower defense game called Net Invaders. See, there are nasty viruses, trojans, and worms attacking your systems, and only Cisco security technology can stop them. Yes, this is really happening.

You might remember back in August an update to Google Play Music added public playlist search, which is neat. However, Google then pulled the feature. Presumably it wasn't ready for release at that time, but now it's back in the newest build, and you can download it below.
