The Fossil Q Founder is available now on Fossil's site, but it looks like the Google Store will be getting on the action shortly, as well. The Q Founder retails for $295 at Fossil and is the first not-insanely-priced smartwatch you can buy with one of Intel's brand-new Atom ultra-low-power processors. Most Wear devices to date have used Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 series chip. The Q Founder also has a full gigabyte of RAM, double what you get in the Moto 360 (2015), Huawei Watch, or LG's Watch Urbane, and a respectably large 400mAh battery.
Google has posted a more exhaustive specification sheet than the one on Fossil's store, so you get a bit more insight into what makes this watch different from the rest of the pack. Read More
There are a lot of physical things on sale today, what with it being Black Friday and all. However, the price of digital goods is dropping like a rock today as well. This is where we'll keep track of all those sales so you can grab the ones you want. We'll try to keep this post updated as more sales pop up. And make sure to check out our device/accessory sale roundup too. Read More
Now is the time of year when retailers start to drop prices in an effort to stimulate your innate shopping instincts. Only by keeping a close eye on the ebb and flow of deals can you beat your fellow man to the best stuff at the best price. We're here to aggregate all the deals in one place so you can plan ahead. We'll try to keep this post updated throughout the coming days as Black Friday sales heat up.
The following post was provided by ESET Mobile Security.
Common wisdom and exercising caution is sometimes not enough when it comes to ensuring the security of your Android device. To have to pay attention to every link you click on or to every app you download might prove pretty frustrating.
At ESET, we have been combatting malware for nearly 30 years. Our mission remains to allow you to enjoy safer technology, so you don’t have to be preoccupied with security. In recent years we have analyzed thousands of malware samples − and with more than 1 billion active devices in circulation, we can say with certainty that Android is without a doubt a platform that attracts cybercriminals.

It's Black Friday, and everything must go! Amazon is offering considerable discounts of over 30% on plenty of devices, including Fire TV sticks and Fire tablets, as well as that futuristic-looking cylinder called Amazon Echo.
Here's what we've managed to find:
It looks like these deals may be available in other stores such as Best Buy, too. Read More
Here's something refreshingly different for you on this fine regular Friday morning: Instagram is working on multiple account support on Android and if you're lucky enough you might already have the option inside your app. Cue in gasps of amazement. Who needs this, you might ask? Well, small business owners who have a personal and a work account, social media managers, and their ilk. This option will negate the need for mods like Instwogram and allow access to multiple accounts on the same device. And surprisingly, it isn't there on the iOS version of the app yet. WHAT?!
The feature shows up for me and for our tipster on version 7.12.0 of the app, which you can get either from APK Mirror or by enrolling in the app's official Play Store beta testing program. Read More
Let's face it, the new Nest Cam wasn't probably on your Black Friday radar because the cost of the unit is hardly in its hardware, but in the somewhat needed Nest Aware subscription. If you're willing to put down $100-300 per year on that, a few saved bucks here and there won't make that much of a difference. But since we're thrifty people and we think every dollar counts, we'll tell you about this Nest Cam discount anyway.
The Wi-Fi connected security camera has dropped to $170 on every online retailer's store: Nest Store, Google Store, Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, and Walmart. Read More
So you've seen the Audio Technica ATH-M40X and M50X deal, the Jaybird Bluebuds X deal, and the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 deal, but you've decided to resist the temptation of a bargain and skip them all. I'm here to sway you with another deal because as it's obvious to anyone in the entire universe, it's Black Friday yo! Even my local shoe store halfway around the world in Lebanon is having a BF discount, and if there's anything that tempts me as much as gadgets, it's shoes.
But I digress. Beside its BF bonanza, Amazon still has its daily deals to cover and today sees a couple of interesting headphones appear in that list. Read More
Android Wear is not everyone's thing. I splurged for a Huawei Watch with a mesh link earlier today when Amazon's $100 discount kicked off, but you may not like the look of the Hwatch or the way Android Wear works. Or you might be invested in Samsung's ecosystem and have more faith in the way they handle their wearable's platform. After all, it's your wrist, you can wear whatever you want on it.
In that case, you might want to head to Adorama today. I know, I know, it's not Amazon, and you'll have to create an account if you never shopped there, and do all of that unnecessary work while you're still under the influence of a glucose coma from your meal, but it might be worth the effort of working a few more minutes.

It's Black Friday, and deals are popping up everywhere like crazy. The Nexus 9 saw its price slashed by a whopping $200 and the brand-new Nexus 5X is being sold at just $299 on the Google Store and B&H. But while those deals are definitely great and all, nothing beats free.
If you own a Chromecast, free is exactly what you can get. Right now, you can redeem 90 days of Spotify Premium for precisely zero dollars and zero cents. We're not entirely sure in which countries this offer applies, since Google only mentions the US, Puerto Rico, and Malaysia in their support page, but I can definitely confirm that it also works in Portugal, so there's a very good chance you'll be able to redeem it in many of the almost 60 countries where Spotify is available.
