[Deal Alert] The New BLU Vivo XL Is On Sale For A Sweet $100 On Best Buy ($50 Off)

The amount of technology and specs that you can get for less than $200 nowadays is staggering. Do you remember when we were gushing over quad-core processors and 720p displays in flagships that cost over $600 and $700? Well, now those specs count in the lower end of the smartphone market, or at best the lower midrange.

Take the BLU Vivo XL for example. It was just announced at CES at the beginning of the month.

Pushbullet Competitor 'Join' Goes Paid, Introductory Price Set At $3.99

Join, by joaomgcd of many Tasker plugins and automation apps fame, has been in beta for nearly two months now. When I tried it out at launch, it already had a lot of its functionality covered, allowing your phones and computers to share things with each other: links, SMS messages, screenshots, media files, copied text, and more. The app has been getting frequent updates since then, adding Tasker integration and making it possible to send SMS from any browser without the need for a Chrome extension. You could say that Pushbullet's little brother has grown up to actually compete against it.

[APK Download] Google Calendar Adds Smart Event Suggestions And 54 New Country Holidays

Most of us rely on our Calendars to tell us where we need to be and what we need to do. Few calendars, however, take into account public and religious holidays, so we often end up scheduling meetings on these off days or putting deadlines right after them. Google Calendar has long been able to show public holidays from many countries around the world, but it's now adding 54 more for a total of 143. Lebanon, for example, is among the new additions. Yay! These holiday calendars can be enabled from Settings > Holidays and then choosing one or several countries to display.

[Deal Alert] Highly Rated Silicon Power MicroSD Cards Are On Sale Super Cheap At Amazon: $33 For 128GB, $15 For 64GB

Silicon Power is not a brand you've probably ever heard of (I for sure hadn't before today). Their name kinda sounds like it would belong to a labor union representing the robot uprising. Well, it turns out they don't provide legal counsel to the likes of Wall-E and R2D2, these guys make MicroSD cards.

They must do an alright job, because they have a 4.5 star rating with over 1,200 reviews. Their whole lineup of class 10 UHS-1 memory cards is currently on sale, and the prices are pretty doggone compelling.

Those are some low prices, about a third less than what you can expect to pay for name brand cards from the likes of SanDisk or Samsung, which are also rated at 4.5 stars.

[Deal Alert] eBay Has A New Unlocked GSM-LTE LG G4 In Black Leather For $340 With Free US Shipping

The G4 is easily the best LG smartphone available at the moment, and if you're particularly fond of the leather back option or of manual camera controls, it may be the best choice on the market. We've seen some significant discounts on the phone before, but one eBay vendor has the best price yet: $339.95 for a new, unlocked GSM model. Depending on where you buy from, that represents a discount of $100 to 300 or more off of the retail price.

This particular model appears to be the international LTE version, and the description says that it supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, and 25.

YouTube App Adds 'Watch Later' Action To 'New Upload' Notifications

Google added the handy "bell" icon to the YouTube app's channel screens last summer to make signing up for "new upload" notifications quick and painless. But until now, users could only watch the video immediately, or take a shortcut to settings to disable the notification.

Recently though, it seems the YouTube app's upload notifications are gaining a new action - watch later. If you don't want to see the latest video from your favorite channel right this second, you can tap this new action to add it to your Watch Later list on YouTube. Here's a before-and-after shot of the notification:

Reddit's Official Android App Released To Private Beta Testers

In an announcement, Reddit's CEO said that they are launching an official Android beta, which for the time being is a closed beta. Of course, these kinds of things have their way of ending up in the public eye. The current development version, similar in appearance to the screenshot an administrator posted back in September, boasts the full spectrum of capabilities that Redditors currently have to go to third-party offerings to get.

Being pretty late to the party, this beta doesn't bring anything mind-blowing to the table, at least at the current stage of its development.

[Bonza] Google Introduces Its Beaut New Australian Text-To-Speech Voice With A Synthesized Version Of 'I've Been Everywhere'

If you're an American and you've heard the tongue-twisting country music ballad "I've Been Everywhere," odds are that you've heard the most popular version from Johnny Cash, or perhaps the earlier version by the unequaled Hank Snow. There have been dozens of adaptations of the song, for everywhere from Texas to Singapore. But the original was written by Geoff Mack way back in 1959 and popularized by Lucky Starr, and the first set of lyrics was exclusively tailored to cities, towns, and regions in Australia. The song featured such multi-syllabic municipalities as Megalong, Tamborine, Woodenbong, and Grong Grong.
