Hands-on with Hulu TV: Great, but I'm confused about the audience

Some of you might know that Hulu rolled out a Live TV service to their existing streaming platform. I've spent a bit of time checking it out (if you do things right, kids, watching TV can be work) and I think I'm in a good position to provide a reasonably educated opinion on the service. Overall, I'm a bit confused about who, exactly, it's for.

T-Mobile announces 'Premium Device Protection Plus' for $15 per month

Time was you could pay a few bucks per month for phone insurance through your carrier and that was the end of it. Now, there are a myriad of different tiers with varying costs based on the phone you use. Yikes. T-Mobile is adding to the confusion today with a new device insurance tier called Premium Super Pro Protection Plus Extreme.

The OnePlus 5 name and summer availability have been confirmed

The Verge today reported an exclusive confirmation of the name and release date for the previously rumored OnePlus 5. Expect to see the phone land this summer. It's been long rumored that OnePlus would be skipping the number 4 due to the bad luck associated with the number in China, and that seems to have held true. Their appreciation of Robert Horry (a former NBA Player whose jersey number on the Spurs and Lakers was 5) was also a contributing factor behind OnePlus' decision.

[Update: Groupon] Deal Alert: Bragi's truly wireless earbuds, The Dash, are $100 on Woot for a refurbished pair ($200 off)

The completely wireless earbud trend started several years ago, long before Apple's Airpods, and Bragi was one of the companies at the forefront of the technology. After the inevitable delays that plague every Kickstarter product, Bragi managed to ship The Dash and actually deliver on its promise. In my review of the earbuds, I found the technology a little magical, the NFMI transmission between the two earbuds more reliable than Bluetooth, the design completely freeing, and the basic features well done.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked Sony Xperia XZs down to $620 at Amazon ($64 off)

It seems to be the night of back-to-back Sony phone deals. Just a few weeks ago we posted that the Xperia XZs (I will never understand Sony's naming scheme) was down to $658 over on Amazon. Now it's gotten down to $619.99, but just for the black model. The XZs is a mid-season refresh of last year's XZ, featuring an updated camera and a bit of extra RAM. Although the 1.22µm pixels in the new camera aren't the largest, it does have a high 19MP resolution and can shoot in 4K, as well as 960fps slow motion video.

Uber now suggests corner drop-offs for POOL rides (in some markets)

Most of us who use Uber or another ride-share have probably been in this situation. You're in a carpool with a ton of people, and the next person up lives down a complicated string of one-way turns. You look at the route and see you're actually closer, right now, to their drop-off point than you will be for the next few minutes of bumper-to-bumper navigation. Nonetheless, you have to sit as the car winds around to the address, wasting everyone's time. Well, now Uber will recommend nearby drop-off locations for precisely these situations. Currently the feature is only live in a few places, but I can't wait.
