[Deal Alert] Amazon Is Selling The Nextbit Robin For $299 From May 4 Till May 10 ($100 Off)

The Nextbit Robin is one of the rare success stories of smartphone crowdfunding. The company delivered the product in a decent timeline and didn't skimp on its hardware or software promises, even if its approach isn't exactly perfect right now or suited for everyone as Ryan pointed out in his detailed review. Nextbit is also following up on the Robin with software updates, recently releasing Android 6.0.1 with plenty of fixes bundled in. And if the Robin's hardware is your cup of tea but you prefer a different software layer, you can grab TWRP to be ready to flash different ROMs and mods to the phone, like the newly released CM 13 nightly.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD (3rd Gen) And Huawei Honor 7 Receive TWRP Support

The Huawei Honor 7 may be a flagship device, but compared to some of the competition, it doesn't cost all that much. The same can kinda be said for Amazon's Kindle Fire HD. That makes each device an okay one to muck around with.

Before you start flashing ROMs, you need a decent custom recovery. The Team Win Recovery Project is more than decent. In many ways, this is the top option available right now.

[Deal Alert] All Styles Of The Huawei Watch On Sale For $100-150 Off At Amazon And Best Buy

Perhaps the best of the current brood of Android Wear watches, the Huawei watch looks great and performs admirably. It's also quite expensive, so it's always welcome news when it goes on sale. Here's some of that welcome news, the Huawei watch is on sale.

In fact, every color and band option available at Amazon and Best Buy is currently $100 to $150 off (with the exception of the ladies rose gold version, which is $50 off).

[Deal Alert] Sphero BB-8 Remote Control Robot Is On Sale For $120 ($30 Off) On Amazon

Sphero's tiny, motorized BB-8 droid (based on the company's well-known ball robot design) was the Star Wars toy to have when Episode VII hit theaters last year. It's become less of a hot commodity since then, but Sphero keeps adding new things to do with the toy, and now you can actually find it on store shelves. The miniature astromech was just a little past the impulse buy range at $150 retail, though it looks like most retailers have taken it down to $130 or so. Today Amazon has the toy for even less.

[Deal Alert] 64GB Corsair Flash Voyager GO MicroUSB OTG Flash Drive Drops To Lowest Price On Amazon, $22.99

I like managing local files. I like copying data over to flash drives and moving them around regardless of whether I have Internet access. I like knowing I can cram a stick of flash memory into my device and access files that wouldn't fit on internal storage.

But I don't like cables. They take up excess space, and they look like a mess. As much as I enjoy transferring files, plugging one device into another using a cable still strikes me as tedious.

A microUSB OTG flash drive is a nice workaround.

Federal Judge Finds Amazon Was At Fault When It Billed Parents For In-App Purchases Made By Kids

Here's a bit of a blast from the past. A federal judge has decided that Amazon was in the wrong when it billed parents for in-app purchases made by their kids on its Appstore platform. Both Apple and Google settled this case with the Federal Trade Commission two years ago, but Amazon wanted its day in court. It didn't go so well.

[Deal Alert] Moto 360 Sport On Sale In White And Flame Orange For $199.99, Plus B&H Throws In A $50 Gift Card

Ryan Whitwam called the Moto 360 Sport good on paper, but hard to recommend in practice. Maybe we can amend that to hard to recommend at full price.

Motorola usually wants $299.99 for the smartwatch, but right now the company is offering the athletic-oriented Android Wear device for $100 less.
