[Deal Alert] Amazon's Top Selling Anker 10,000mAh External Battery On Sale For $25.99 ($79.99 Retail)

Anker makes solid external batteries, and there's a nice deal on one of the larger ones over at Amazon right now. The Anker Astro E3 with 10,000mAh of juice can be yours for $25.99. This unit has a retail price of $80, but of course, you're never going to pay that. It usually bounces around $40, so this is still a good deal.

Skiva PowerFlow Octofire Is The Bugatti Veyron Of USB Hubs, Can Charge 8 Devices Up To 2.1A At Once Now For $79.99

Power! Unlimited power! Okay, technically the Skiva PowerFlow Octofire limits us to charging eight devices at once, but in a world of plugging devices into power outlets one at a time, this sounds like a gift from the gods. Users can charge two families' worth of devices (or, for the sake of imagination, half of a college class, every phone in a very small office, or all the handsets that can fit in the pockets contained within a clown car).

Skype just rolled out an update to its Android app, bumping it up to v5.0. The app isn't going to look much different, but it is gaining the ability to automatically find and add your phone contacts to your Skype contact list. It even happens automagically in the background.

[New App] Digify Wants To Be Snapchat For Sending Files, Even Supports Dropbox

The problem with sharing files over the internet is that everything is permanent. Digify doesn't fix this issue, but it sure attempts to by taking the Snapchat approach to privacy and applying it to files. Rather than giving someone permanent access to a document, it gets a time limit from the sender and initiates a self-destruct at said time. It even goes so far as to provide information on who has opened the file and how long they've interacted with it.

[New App] SecondScreen Lets Root Users Adjust A Device's Resolution For Better Chromecasting

Let's get this out of the way first: SecondScreen is not an external extended monitor app for Android. (Though that would be extremely cool.) I think the developer does a bit of a disservice with that name. What it does is force your phone or tablet to use a different resolution in order to make it display correctly - or at least more correctly - when casting the screen to a television via Chromecast or simply using an HDMI cable.

Living With Wear: Some Observations After A Month With Android Wear

Like other Google I/O attendees, I picked up an Android Wear device at the conference. I went with the LG G Watch. What follows is not really a review so much as my experiences and thoughts about Wear thus far, having lived with it literally every day since picking it up. I'll include some of my opinions on the platform (ignoring for now the hardware), and what I think might be relevant insights and comparisons to Google's other efforts (like Glass).

[Updated] Google Play Summer Sale Kicks Off With Reaper, Beautiful Widgets, Dead Space, And More

It looks like Google has surreptitiously started a little summer promo in the Play Store with discounts on apps and games, with some going below the usual $0.99 barrier. There's no official landing page yet, so we don't know everything that's included, but more could still be on the way.

Amazon Prime Music Adds 'Hundreds Of Thousands' Of New Songs To Its Subscription Service, From Elvis To Lil Jon

Amazon's Prime Music service, a free add-on for anyone who's already a Prime subscriber, launched to a resounding "meh." The app and service functions well enough, but with plenty of alternatives both free and paid, Amazon's boast of "over one million songs" rang somewhat hollow. As a Prime subscriber myself, I saw it as a nice perk, but it's no reason to stop paying for Google Play Music All Access as well.

[New Game] Gameloft's Modern Combat 5: Blackout Is Out, Costs $7, No In-App Purchases To Be Found

Modern Combat, Gameloft's Call Of Duty / Battlefield "inspired" shooter series, is back - the fifth installment in the mobile franchise just hit the Play Store. The best thing about MC5? Gameloft has stripped of it the loathsome in-app purchases Modern Combat 3 and 4 were saddled with.

unnamed (1) unnamed (1) unnamed (2)

Modern Combat 5 will cost you $7, which for a mobile game of this caliber, I'd say, is pretty reasonable - Gameloft really has no mention-worthy competition in the fully-featured mobile FPS market, so honestly, they could probably charge twice that and still make a lot of money on this game.

VSN Mobil Announces The V.360, A Crazy Snapdragon 800-Powered, 360-Degree, 16MP Camcorder With An IP67 Rating

A typical camera captures what's in front of it, but newer products are rolling out that really don't care what direction they're facing. Florida-based startup VSN Mobil's new V.360 is such a camera, one that records everything going on in a 360 degree area around it. It's not the first device to do this, but with its 16MP imager capable of capturing content in full 1080p, it should do so quite prettily.
