I've been a long-time fan of Blu phones - they are, generally speaking, solid handsets for the money. Whether you're looking for an affordable daily driver for yourself, a backup, or a cheap alternative for someone else, I feel like Blu is a great place to start the search.
Today, Amazon is offering a good deal on one of Blu's older handsets, the Advance 4.0, for just $50 as part of its Goldbox deal. Read More
The Moto 360 starts out at $249.99, but if you want one in gold, that will cost you an extra $30. And if you want a spiffy metal band to match, that will be another $50. So at the end of the process, you're looking at handing over $330 for your shiny intelligent watch.
Today you can get a gold Moto 360 in this configuration on Amazon for just $260. That's only $10 more than a silver or black one with a leather strap. Read More
Amazon's Prime Music service is demonstrably behind competitors like Spotify and Google Play Music. Maybe that's why it's thrown in with Amazon Prime (which most people get for the shipping discounts) as a freebie. But never let it be said that Amazon rests on its laurels when it comes to new features: the latest update to Prime Music adds streaming music stations, like... well, like just about every other music service at this point.

Samsung's top-of-the-line Galaxy Tab S series is legitimately awesome, but the 8.4 and 10.5-inch models are also considerably more expensive than their competitors. For a short time Samsung is discounting both of them by $100 on its official online store. The base 16GB Wi-Fi models of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are now $299.99 and 399.99, respectively, a sale price that's reportedly effective through Saturday, April 11th. Read More
Let's be honest here: there hasn't been much movement for Android TV since the Nexus Player was released way back in November. Though Sony has committed to using ATV in its upcoming smart TVs, the actual availability of Google's latest set-top box is depressingly low. But two gaming-centric Android TV units are on the horizon, and one of them is from veteran PC accessory vendor Razer. The Forge TV now has an unconfirmed release date (May 1st) and at least one pre-order retailer (Amazon). Read More
The Nexus 6 is a fantastic phone, but it doesn't have the appealingly low price that its immediate predecessors did. If you've been waiting for the price to drop a bit below the $650 mark for the base model, now's your chance. Amazon is selling the unlocked 32GB blue version for just $583.90, a solid 10% discount. The seller is a third party (with no Prime shipping), and at the time of writing there are only 9 left at this price - hurry if you want to grab one. Read More
Looking for some high-end headphones? Then you need to head on over to Amazon post-haste. Some of Sony's best around-the-ear noise-cancelling cans, charmingly named the MDR1RNC and MDR10RNC, are on sale for 50% off or better. But this is a Daily Deal for the United States, so you've only got until midnight Central time to get an order in. That's 1 AM for you in the Eastern time zone and 10 PM for those of you on Pacific time. Read More
Just about every American carrier is eager to take your pre-order for the new Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or HTC One M9, but if you prefer to get your phones from Amazon, they'll happily take your money too. Right now it looks like the only way to buy the phones are through the carriers, complete with the various lock-outs on AT&T and Verizon models, but you can purchase them with new contracts, renewed contracts, or contract-free.

The Nexus 6 is big and fast and sharp, but my favorite feature is probably its Quick Charge capacity, which lets it charge up in a fraction of the time it takes older phones. The only problem is that this feature requires special charging adapters: one of them comes in the box, but the rest of the time you're stuck with the old charging rate. If you're in the market for an extra Quick Charge adapter, and you wouldn't mind charging a bunch of other stuff at the same time, check out this deal on the US version of Amazon. Read More
