[Deal Alert] Sprint offers the LG G6 at 50% off, Best Buy discounts the Verizon version even more to $288

If you've been eying the quasi new LG G6 and you're stuck indoors today and passing your time by browsing, you might have stumbled onto two super nice deals for the phone.

First up, Sprint is offering 50% off the LG G6 by lowering the monthly installments from $29.5 to $14.75 over 24 months. That brings the price down to $360 total. The offer applies to existing "well-qualified" customers and new activations on Unlimited Freedom. It doesn't look like this is one of those deals where you pay the whole sum then get reimbursed credit for the rest, so the discount should apply from the get-go.

Microsoft's Path Guide app for Android makes creating and giving directions indoors easy

Microsoft recently released a new app for Android called Path Guide, which allows you to easily create and follow custom routes for indoor areas that exist as linear instructions separate from a map. Think of a children's treasure hunt where each goal shows the next step, toss the whole thing on your phone, and that's the concept. Even more interesting, it makes the process of creating those directions literally as easy as taking a walk. When you want to make a path just fire up the app and go for a stroll. By pulling data from your phone's sensors as you move to your destination it handles everything for you.

Weekend poll: Do you use a tablet?

Tablets as a form factor seem to be headed for niche-ification in the near future. Sales are down, consumer interest seems low, and smartphones are just getting bigger and better, allowing us to do things that may have seemed a bit impractical on a handset as little as five years ago. Laptops, too, are seeing a resurgence: they last longer, do more, and are becoming even more portable and versatile, often offering touchscreens and convertible designs that make them work as quasi-tablets when needed.

So, I'm curious, nearly halfway through 2017, how many of you still use a tablet? How often?
