[Deal Alert] Samsung 128GB EVO Class 10 MicroSD Card Drops Back Down To $39.99 On Amazon

I like microSD cards. No trusting your data to file hosting services. No being dependent on having access to Wi-Fi or having to worry about burning through your cellular data allotment. You know your files are accessible when you want them.

When you're looking to buy a microSD card, one aspect to consider is whether it's big. Small is fine, but really, what you want is big. 32GB holds more music than 16GB. 64GB puts 32GB to shame. 128GB crushes them both.

Facebook Messenger's Material-Infused Redesign Is Now Official

Facebook Messenger is the regular Facebook app's cooler cousin. It may not always know which look is fashionable, but it isn't afraid to experiment and adapt. If the app doesn't come out looking sharp the first time, it has no problem with returning back to the store, spending some time in the dressing room, and coming out with something different.

[Deal Alert] Save $15 When You Buy Two Chromecast Audio Devices From The Google Store

Chromecast Audio is Chromecast for your ears. You plug the circular puck into a speaker and then cast sound from your phone, tablet, or PC. If you already have a bunch of speakers lying around, this is a relatively cheap way to wirelessly stream music regardless of which room you're in. Even cooler, you can stream audio to multiple rooms at once.

A Chromecast Audio costs $35. Since you're probably going to want more than one, now would be a good time to consider picking up a unit from the Google Store.

TuneIn Radio Adds Play-By-Play NBA Audio Starting With The 2016-2017 Season For Premium Subscribers In The US

 

You know what sucks? Not watching basketball. I absolutely hate when I have something else going on while the Bulls are playing and I don't get to watch the game. Being able to listen to the game makes that a little easier to tolerate, which I currently do from the official NBA app if that's the only option. If you're a TuneIn Radio Premium subscriber and an NBA fan, though, things just got a bit easier for you: TuneIn has reached a deal with the NBA that will allow it to stream all game audio from the app starting globally with the 2016-2017 season.

Nexus Factory Images For March Security Updates Are Now Available

As is the (new-ish) tradition, Google rolls out security updates on the first Monday of each month. The factory images for March's updates are right on schedule with all of the recent fixes to shore up potential vulnerabilities in the operating system. LMY49H is the build number for the Nexus 10 update, which will remain cut off at Lollipop. Most of the other devices on the list are moving up to MMB29V, though a few other build numbers are available for special variants. It looks like there may still be a couple of missing images, like the Nexus 6P. Just keep checking back and they'll probably turn up shortly.

Project Fi Goes Invite-Free, And New Subscribers Can Get The Nexus 5X For Only $199.99

Android is killing it, so last year, Google expanded into the mobile space in a bigger way. The company introduced Project Fi and became a smartphone carrier. Okay, technically it's a mobile virtual network operator like Ting and Republic Wireless, but instead of being limited to Sprint's towers, Google has kicked off a way to hop back and forth between both Sprint and T-Mobile.

For the past ten months, Project Fi has been invite-only. That's now changing. Google is making the service available to anyone in the US who wants in.

Verizon Wireless Fined $1.35 Million Over Privacy-Invading Supercookies

Tracking cookies are an unfortunate reality of using the internet when so many sites and services are supported by advertising. Verizon Wireless was caught recently using so-called "supercookies" to track users for advertising purposes, and unlike regular cookie files, there was no way to block or opt out of this tracking. Well, the FCC has finished its investigation of Verizon's tracking practices and fined the company a mere $1.35 million.

Dropbox Now Has Over 500 Million Registered Users

Earlier this year, the Dropbox Android app ran by the 500 million installs milestone on Google Play. The problem with that metric is that it tracks the number of times the app has been downloaded from the Play Store, which includes updates to pre-installed versions. That makes this a very unspecific marker of how many people actually use Dropbox on Android.

We still don't know the answer to that question, but today Dropbox is happy to announce the number of people using the service overall. Over 500 million people have signed up since the file hosting company started syncing the contents of desktop folders in 2008.
