V-MODA's Crossfade LP metal headphones are again discounted over on Amazon. While usually priced at $200, today you can get them for just $70. That's nearly a third of the price.
The Crossfade LP headphones are made of metal and likely durable enough to withstand headbanging against a wall. They're noise cancelling, which lets you tune out the nearby sane person asking you to stop. You have five color options to choose from, including white, red, black, and the same colors combined in a couple other ways. Read More
Looking for an awesome Android TV machine? Then go buy the NVIDIA SHIELD, because it's worth every penny that you pay over competitors like the Razer Forge TV and the original Nexus Player. But if you want one that's cheap, look no further than the Amazon listing for Google's first-party set-top box. Today the Nexus Player is $64.78, just over $35 off of the $100 retail price.

Amazon's phone, tablets, and other Fire devices run Android, but it doesn't come in the form you see on most devices. They all run a variant called Fire OS. The current version is based on Android 4.4, though this doesn't matter all that much once you take into account the sheer volume of changes Amazon makes.
Nevertheless, Fire OS 5 is on its way, and it will run Android Lollipop. Read More
Amazon has taken its sweet time bringing its dedicated cloud storage solution to Android devices. Amazon Cloud Drive Photos has been around since 2012, but that was a photo-specific product that came years after Dropbox, to name one competitor, was already letting mobile users back up whatever they want. Amazon Cloud Player Music launched in 2011, but again, that just stored audio files.
It is only now in 2015 that Amazon has made a non-specialized Cloud Drive app available for Android. Read More
BlackBerry has slowly but surely realized that their best bet for continued existence is to somehow bridge the app compatibility gap that Android and iOS boast in comparison to their platform. The route they have taken is adding the ability to natively run Android apps within the BlackBerry OS, which quite honestly is a good idea. The next step is getting those apps to users. For American users, that starts today, as a new OS update will bring the Amazon Appstore along with it. Read More

The second generation Moto G is down $40 on the site, dropping to one of the lowest prices we have seen it at: $139.99.

The third generation Moto G may be around the corner, but this 2nd generation model is still one of the best low midrange Android devices, at a very affordable price. Read More
An external USB-powered battery is not a complex piece of electronics. Generally it has energy input, energy output via a couple of standard USB ports, maybe a few LED lights for measuring the charge, and perhaps a flashlight if the manufacturer is feeling creative. But today's Amazon Gold Box deal includes a battery that can actually start your car. How's that for flexibility? The Anker gadget (an economical brand name we've come to trust) is going for $59.99, $100 off the retail price. Read More
Amazon Cloud Drive is like other cloud storage options, only it provides unlimited storage space. That's nothing to sniff at, but it's still not all that big a deal if your favorite apps can't smoothly tap into the service.
To address this issue, Amazon has now released an SDK so that developers can start baking the platform into their apps. The additions serve as part of the company's existing Mobile App SDK. Read More
Today Nest has unveiled the second generation of its Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. It will retail for the same $100 as the previous model, and it comes with a number of fixes intended to address the flaws of the first model.
The big new feature is the ability to silence an alarm using the companion app. Other additions include a sensor that can tell the difference between fast and slow fires and a humidity sensor that should prevent the device from going off due to steam. Read More
