Straight Talk Bumps Data Allowance From 3GB To 5GB For Customers Who Bring Their Own Phone

Straight Talk offers good deals for mobile service on the big national networks (it's an MVNO), but the deal is getting a little sweeter today for anyone who brings their own phone. The standard plan will now offer 5GB of unthrottled LTE data instead of just 3GB. The price is staying at $45, and the increased data takes effect on your next monthly "refill" date.

[Deal Alert] White 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 Marked Down To $249 At GameStop Online Store

Even though it is over a year old, the 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro is still an impressive tablet.

At launch, the asking price for the device was a cool $500. If you were tempted to buy one then, but decided to hold off then congratulations, your patience has been rewarded.

A new report from Bloomberg claims Google is about to revamp the way privacy is handled in Android apps. The changes would allow users to approve permissions individually for things like the camera, location, or the contact list.

LG's newest smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane, costs $350. So let me just throw it out there now: judging LG's new Watch Urbane from a value perspective is sort of completely silly. When it comes to value, I don't think any Android Wear watch has especially great appeal - after all, you're paying as much or more for one than you would a relatively inexpensive smartphone, a smartphone that does many, many more things.
