Some of you probably don't think of many things when you hear the acronym "NFC". Those letters might conjure up thoughts of making mobile payments, and there's that cool ring that can unlock your smartphone, but there's not much else going on, right? Wrong. With an app like NFC Task Launcher, you can program your phone to do whatever you wish once it's near a NFC tag (which you place wherever you want them - car, nightstand, living room sofa, what have you).

Portable speakers and premium phone cases are two great tastes that taste great together, at least if you've got enough disposable income to afford both on top of your expensive smartphone. In a consolidation of the high-end accessory world, California-based case maker Incipio has purchased Braven, the Utah-based maker of a line of portable Bluetooth speakers.

Both companies tend to skew towards the higher end of the accessory market. Incipio likes to go for the low-hanging fruit of the iPad and iPhone (though they do have plenty of accessories for the more popular Android phone and tablet models) while Braven's Bluetooth speakers are device-agnostic in nature.

Is the HTC One "classic" just a little too big and ungainly? Then perhaps the HTC One Mini is up your alley. It just so happens AT&T is looking to sell one to you. We've known the HTC One Mini was headed for Ma Bell, but the carrier just made it official. It's half the price of the full-sized One at $99.99, which isn't a bad deal.

The HTC One Mini comes with Android 4.2 and runs a Snapdragon 400 ARM chip, 1GB of RAM, Ultrapixel camera, and a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD2 screen.

While we haven't heard a peep about the Android 4.2 update rolling out to the HTC One in the US, it's old news in Europe. In fact, HTC is already rolling out the 4.2 update to last year's flagship, the HTC One X, on that side of the pond. European owners of the Tegra 3-powered handset will now get to taste Sense 5, including BlinkFeed, but they have the option to disable the latter if they're not interested.

Like many digital innovations, WigWag occupies the space between facilitating necessary evolution and being a lazy person's wet dream. It's an "If This Then That" intelligent environment-building sensor that reached its funding goal a month ago, already achieving twice the funds the team asked for. Now the campaign has ended, with WigWag acquiring nine times more than its $50,000 ambition.

What's all the excitement about? The WigWag is a sensor that empowers users to write their own rules for how their homes should function.

Just how big is the HTC One Max (AKA T6), rumored to use a 5.9-inch screen? It's big. So big that it dwarfs the HTC One in a new photo from ePrice, the source that leaked the original photos of a purported Chinese model of the upcoming phone. The latest leak shows it next to the One and One Mini, making a family portrait for the One series.

But this isn't just a photo of the baby bear, mama bear, and papa bear of the HTC's lineup.

If the Galaxy Note II isn't what you'd call "big," and you'd feel much more comfortable using something like a Nexus 7 as your phone, then perhaps the Galaxy Mega may be just what the doctor ordered. While the Mega isn't a new phone in terms of international availability, Samsung has just announced that the massive 6.3-inch device will be making its way to the States eventually. This comes as no surprise, as we've already seen both AT&T and Sprint versions of the device.

The weekend seems to go by so fast, right? Well, maybe with some new apps and games to distract you, the work week will fly by too. Of course, we have some sales to facilitate that.

Update: It looks like the seller has increased the price to $175, which makes this not such a good deal.

The 2013 Nexus 7 is probably the best Android tablet you can buy now, but the 2012 model has been given a new lease on life with the Android 4.3 update. If you still want one, the 32GB last-generation Nexus 7 is on sale through eBay Daily Deal today for a downright reasonable $139.99.

The folks at CyanogenMod never seem to sleep. After adding no less than thirteen devices this month, they threw two more official builds into the nightly updates this weekend, both for Samsung hardware. The international LTE version of the Galaxy S4 Mini and Verizon's localized version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 both have shiny new pages on Get.CM.
