[Deal Alert] The New Nest Cam Drops By $25 To $175 At Amazon And Walmart

Nest's new Cam has been available for a few months with its 1080p video capture and better WiFi signals, but it's not the cheapest connected security cam you can get for your home. If you've been wanting one but the $199 price was a little too hard to digest, you may be happy to know that the Cam has dropped by $25 online.

Both Amazon and Walmart are showing the new Nest Cam at a $175 price (minus a few pennies here and there) and that could be all the persuasion you need to grab one. Or if it was already on your Holiday shopping list, now might be a better time to jump the gun and get one.

NVIDIA Re-releases SHIELD Tablet As SHIELD Tablet K1, Drops The Price To $199 [Quick Hands-On]

In my personal opinion, NVIDIA's SHIELD Tablet has been one of the better Android tablets on the market for the last year and a half (give or take). Sure, it's had its ups and downs — a mandatory recall due to battery issues back in August probably hurt it more than anything, but NVIDIA did what was right and replaced all affected units.

Around that same time, SHIELD Tablet as we knew it was EOL'd. Initially we kind of assumed that this was because NVIDIA was prepping to release SHIELD Tablet 2, but we haven't seen nor heard anything about that. Now the company is bringing back the original SHIELD Tablet, albeit with a few changes and a nice new price tag.

[Update: Fixed] If The Play Store Is Saying "You Don't Have Any Devices" For All Apps, You Are Not Alone

Living in Lebanon, I'm used to seeing limited app compatibility on the Play Store. Some apps are just not available in my country for a logical reason, others aren't because who-knows-why, and a few are limited to carriers or specific devices. I am, however, definitely not used to seeing "You don't have any devices" on every single app that I visit on the Play Store, which is what happened to me yesterday. I chalked it off as the Play Store being the Play Store, which is to say sometimes weird and slow to realize that I have at least 7 different Android devices that the app can be installed on, and moved on.

LEGO Brings Its MINDSTORMS Programmer App To The Play Store

I love LEGOs. The mix of the juvenile careless joy of playing and the brainiac excitement of building new things is a satisfying feeling. But LEGOs are now way past the colored bricks that we had when I was younger. There are mechanical pieces, more complicated designs, broader possibilities, and even programmable robots.

The latter is LEGO's MINDSTORMS set. It lets you build 5 different types of robots and then using computer connectivity or Bluetooth, you could make them do things. There's an app to control them, one to help you build the different robot types, and a cool puzzle game, but now MINDSTORMS can also be completely programmed from your Android tablet thanks to this app.

[Australia Only] Nexus 6P Owners On Telstra Are Experiencing Issues With Data Connection, Google Already Has A Fix On The Way

Do you ever feel left out because of all the US-only news we post? If you live in Australia, then you're in luck, because this one is just for you! Now those Americans can finally experience what you have to go through on a daily basis, right? Actually, probably not, since this is likely not the kind of thing over which you want exclusivity.

Many Australian Nexus 6P owners have been experiencing connectivity issues on Telstra, one of the country's three main mobile carriers. The issues seem to arise whenever the device disconnects from a WiFi network and switches to a 4G connection.

The Latest Android Wear App Update To Version 1.4 Is Causing Lots Of Issues, Users Are Showing Their Discontent On The Play Store

Not all app updates are created equal and while most usually fix bugs, add features, and make things better, faster, smoother, more stable, and more enjoyable, it is not the case of the latest Android Wear app update. Google giveth and Google taketh away.

Version 1.4, which was released about 10 days ago, did some UI cleaning, but it dumped a couple of features: the battery stats (for everyone) and the disconnect toggle (for some users). Battery stats weren't the most useful feature all the time, but I liked peeking at them every now and then to check the stamina of my watch.

On The Heels Of Chase Pay Announcement, Chase Is Now Saying They Will Not Support Android Pay Until Sometime In 2016

Though no reasonable person would have suspected that Android Pay would get early support from every vendor, bank, and finance company, Chase has loomed large as among the most conspicuous absences. It doesn't help that the banking giant announced Chase Pay last month, which is like Android Pay except worse in almost every way.

After a post on Reddit claimed to have been told by a Chase rep that they were adding support for Android Pay in 2015, Chase customers began to look forward to being first-class Android Pay citizens. It is worth noting, though, that in other public venues and in private communications with users, Chase was very vague about timelines.

Facebook Will Allow Google To Index, Deep Link Into Facebook's App From Mobile Searches

Google and Facebook are sort of rivals, even if the average Joe may not realize it. They're both heavily invested in the race to know everything about you and to use that knowledge to make lots of money...somehow. And while Google has become a pretty integral part of using the web, on mobile it is important that searches don't just take you to websites, but apps too. That's why today's announcement via an Alphabet spokesperson that Google will show mobile search results that link to the Facebook app is important.

Now, Google has always tried to index Facebook. You have probably seen Facebook profiles and pages in Google search results before.
