[Price War] Sprint Fires Back With New $60 Unlimited Data Plan

Pricing changes don't usually happen this fast in the wireless industry. It seems like T-Mobile and Sprint both have multiple contingencies in place to attack one another based on what goes down each day. Following T-Mobile's announcement of the free LTE upgrade for one year, Sprint has revealed a new unlimited data plan that's only $60 per month. There are a few caveats, though.

T-Mobile Will Offer Free Unlimited LTE Data Upgrade For One Year To Customers Who Refer A Friend From Another Carrier

T-Mobile has really been stepping up the rhetoric against Sprint since the backroom acquisition deal allegedly fell through a few weeks ago. T-Mobile's latest promotion takes direct aim at the Now Network, but it targets the other big carriers too. Starting next week, if you bring a friend over to T-Mobile on a Simple Choice plan, you and they both get a free upgrade to unlimited LTE for one year. Also, there will be awkward dancing, if T-Mobile's promo image is to be believed.

I'm going to say some things about Pac-Man Friends out of the gate that will make some of you want nothing to do with Pac-Man or his pals. This game is free-to-play, and it contains in-app purchases. Three cherries cost 99 cents, a bundle of hearts go for $4.99, so on and so forth. But if you're skilled enough to get by without these power-ups, you don't have to spend any money to get enjoyment out of this experience.

Yahoo Updates Android App With So-Called Digital Magazines

Yahoo has updated its primary Android app with a short and simple changelog: Access digital magazines and news categories from the navigational drawer. Now before anyone gets excited, no, you won't be able to read digital versions of print magazines using Yahoo. For that, you will still need the Google Play Newsstand, Zinio, Kindle, or Nook app installed. What Yahoo is referring to here is something else entirely.

You have an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the latest gaming craze to sweep the nation—Swing Copters. It's like Flappy Bird, but vertical. Yeah, it goes up instead of to the right. Revolutionary. This is the second game from Dong Nguyen of .GEARS Studios, and will presumably be the first one he doesn't unpublish for mysterious reasons in a few months. It's free with ads, but the supposed in-app purchase to remove them doesn't seem to be present in the Android version.

Utter Failure Of Kreyos Smartwatch With $1.5 Million In Backing Shows The Continued Perils Of Hardware Crowdfunding

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.
