[Deal Alert] Pick One: 32GB Refurbished HTC One M8 And Samsung Galaxy Alpha For AT&T Both On Sale For $300 On eBay

Here's an interesting choice, high-end smartphone fans. An eBay vendor is currently selling both the flagship HTC One M8 and the small but premium Samsung Galaxy Alpha for $299.99 each. Both are off-contract phones with AT&T radios, both are 32GB versions, and both are manufacturer refurbished. Both come with free economy shipping and no sales tax outside California. Either one would be a solid choice for any deal-hunting Android fan, but the devil is in the details.

The HTC One M8 is the clear choice if you like your screens big and dense, thanks to its 1080p 5-inch LCD. It's also got an objectively tougher body featuring metal all around.

Samsung Expands Milk Music To The Galaxy Tab 4 And Note Tablets

You could reasonably make the assumption that when Samsung debuted its own media streaming service known intriguingly as Milk Music, it would have released it across its entire catalog of devices. But that's not the way Samsung has decided to pour this beverage. Instead, it's serving things out to a handful of devices at a time.

The latest Galaxy devices to get a slurp are tablets, particularly the Tab 4 and some unspecified Notes. Their turn in line comes seven months after Samsung dished Milk out to the Tab Pro, the Note Pro, and the Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Google Search For Mobile Adds A Sweet New UI For Movie-Related Searches

Google has always been at least somewhat mindful of moviegoers using its primary search tool to get information about recent and upcoming movies. The current Knowledge Graph that you see when searching for movies, actors, directors and so on is pretty good. But if you search using the official Google Search app for Android or search in Chrome for Android starting today, you might see something altogether more interesting. Check out the animation below, straight from the official Google+ account for Search:

Neat, huh? The results for relevant queries are now displayed in a gallery that's not unlike the Google Play Store or similar apps.

Qualcomm Confirms Snapdragon 810 Won't Be Used In 'A Large Customer's Flagship Device' — Probably The Galaxy S6

We've heard a lot of back and forth about the Snapdragon 810, the first high-end 64-bit ARM processor from Qualcomm. First there were rumors that overheating caused Samsung to drop the chip from its Galaxy S6, then LG said the 810 was fine in the G Flex 2. Now, however, Qualcomm says the 810 will not be powering "a large customer's flagship device" this year. That almost certainly means Samsung.

[Leak] This Is Probably The 2nd Generation Moto E

Motorola's super-cheap Moto E was a crowd favorite in the sub-$150 smartphone segment last year, so it'd only make sense that the company is working on a sequel. Here, we think we have it caught in the press-shot flesh - mostly because we're not sure what else it could be.

motoe2

This isn't a Moto G, as it lacks a second speaker grille on the front, and the proportions are all weird in terms of the screen:body ratio. This is clearly a smaller device. The lack of a camera flash is also a giveaway for very inexpensive phones - though it does look like the Moto E has picked up a secondary noise-cancelling microphone on the rear cover.

FTC Secures $40 Million Fine Against TracFone (Straight Talk, Net10, And More) For Deceptive Practices Related To 'Unlimited' Data Plans

Mobile carriers like to play fast and loose with the word "unlimited" when it comes to data plans. They're often technically unlimited, but only fast enough to be useful until you hit a certain barrier. MVNOs operated by TracFone including Net10 and Straight Talk were a little more shady than most, and that led to today's FTC announcement of a $40 million fine against the company.

Runtastic Running And Fitness App Gets The Material Design Treatment In Version 5.4

I'm not much of a runner, but I've occasionally made use of the Runtastic Running and Fitness app to keep track of my time and distance while jogging around the neighborhood. Given that it's the middle of winter in the US, I won't be firing up the app anytime soon. But the more dedicated among you may be happy to know that the latest update (version 5.4) has made the few visual adjustments needed to better fit in on Lollipop devices.

The Material Design overhaul is the big highlight here. With a floating hamburger menu button, a sidebar that slides on top of the action bar, and a colored notification bar, the experience will look spiffy on devices running stock Android 5.0.

Roadie Is Ride-Sharing For Packages, Turns Weekend Trips Into A Chance To Make A Buck

You're a busy person. You've got work all day, groceries to buy during lunch, and kids to pick up after piano practice. (Football? Yeah, let's make it football practice.) The last thing you want to do is schlep across town to drop off that blender for your sister's party next week. Wouldn't it be better if you could just send somebody else to do it? A new service called Roadie is looking to turn everyday commuters and travelers into a network of couriers ready to take just about anything across town, or across the state.

The idea is very similar to ride-share services like Lyft and Uber, but oriented towards moving inanimate objects from point A to point B, rather than humans.
