The Asus ZenWatch never had a moment where it was wildly hailed as the most luxurious Android Wear watch, but it was still a relatively stylish device. Was it worth $200? That depends on who's answering. But for those who said no, here's a way to make the smartwatch more compelling—but you're going to have to jump through some hoops.
First, head to Newegg. There you will see the ZenWatch reduced down to $150 (the same price offered at Amazon). Add it to your cart and enter the coupon code VCO2015BTS. It will save you $10, but only if you complete your purchase using Visa Checkout. Read More
We're halfway through another Humble Bundle, and you know what that means. Yes, more games. There are three new additions to the Humble PC And Android Bundle 13, and we've got ten codes to hand out that unlock the full bundle. That's ten total games for (maybe) free. Otherwise, still pretty cheap. Read More
As we await the release of new Android Wear watches, we have time to reflect on all those first-gen wrist computers. The Sony Smartwatch 3 was actually a pretty neat device with its full microUSB and transflective LCD. It's getting a little cooler still today with an official companion app that adds three new watch faces. Read More
A mysterious startup bought the floating browser app Link Bubble from Chris Lacy a few weeks back, and today comes the first big change—Link Bubble is completely free now. The unlocker app is no longer listed in the Play Store and all premium features are included with the free download. Read More
You've probably heard of TuneIn. It's that app that some kids these days think of as the radio (not to be confused with the static that old people are still able to get their cars to produce). TuneIn lets you stream stations from all over the world, regardless of how far outside of their coverage area you may be.
Now the company is rolling out TuneIn Premium for $7.99 a month. For your money, you get access to over 40,000 audiobooks. You know, because paying for novels individually has apparently become old-school.
TuneIn Premium also comes with over 600 commercial-free music stations. Read More
This last spring, a couple of trolls took to Google Map Maker and created a park that looked like a bugdroid peeing on an Apple logo. Google's reaction to this was removing the ability to make edits using Map Maker altogether, and the community was told that the feature would be added in at a later time. A couple of weeks ago the service came back to life in six countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, India, the Philippines, and Ukraine. Notably missing from this list is the United States. Well as of yesterday, the USA and 44 other countries were added to the countries open to edits. Read More
HTC may have miscalculated with the M9, leading to the company's current downward spiral. CEO Cher Wang has promised investors that HTC is going to turn things around, and part of that is a late 2015 "hero" device. Now a mysterious HTC phone has leaked on Chinese social networking site Weibo, and it very well may be the long-rumored HTC Aero/A9. Read More
So you're at a gathering and your Android phone's about to die. Not only that, so is your friend's iPhone. Basically, in a few minutes, all the things will be dead. You could beg around for a couple of chargers, but then you'll have to trust that no one will take your device when you walk away or deal with being tethered to the wall until you have a reasonable charge.
This is when you want an external battery pack like the Choetech 15,600mAh one available on Amazon. The battery currently goes for $40, but if you enter the coupon code YDUKCSCX at checkout, you can take $8 off. Read More
Are you still using the crappy set of earbuds that came with your phone, the cheap set you bought in a pinch at Target, or the ones you've had for like eight years? If so, it's time for an upgrade. And if you're going to do it, you might as well do it right - it's time to move to a killer set of over-the-ear headphones, like the Legacy from A-Audio.
It just so happens that we have two pairs to give away. Good timing, right? Yep, just for you. <3
But seriously, let's talk about these headphones, because they're pretty badass. Read More
