If you're a gadget geek (like we are), there's a good chance that you have a ton of old tech laying around, doing nothing more than taking up space.
In order to help users get rid of some of the gadget clutter kicking it around their houses, RadioShack is offering a sick new program where
old crap unused devices can turn into new gear.
This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:

- AT&T Motorola Atrix 2: Chris Weller
- Sprint HTC EVO 3D: christoph411
- Beats by Dre SOLO headphones: Sarah Puls
Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
We teamed up with Tasks N Todos back in February to hook one lucky winner up with a Galaxy Tab 8.9 and ten more with pro licenses of Tasks N Todos, and now, we're back again to give one lucky winner a White GSM Galaxy Nexus.
So, what's so great about Tasks N Todos?

It's no secret that we work with a number of publishers to give away a steady stream of books to aid aspiring developers - after all, if we help developers, the entire Android ecosystem as a whole is enriched. But for some people, simply reading a book isn't the ideal way to learn. It's for these people that informIT has released Android App Development Fundamentals LiveLessons - a series of downloadable videos that are designed to teach Java developers how to build apps for Android.

A few days ago, Artem went in-depth with the MEElectronics Air-Fi AF32 Bluetooth headphones, and, for the most part, he loved them. They're sleek, sexy, functional, comfortable, and they provide good audio quality (what more can you ask for?). What makes these headphones exceptionally cool, though, is the six-button controller. But I'm not going to dish all of the details here - I encourage you to read the full review. Read More
We love giving stuff away, which is why we do it so often. As you probably know, we normally tell you guys to leave a comment, like a Facebook page, retweet a message, or something similar, and then we pick a winner at random. Today, however, we're going to do something a little bit different.
We're going to play trivia.
Not Android trivia, either (that would be too easy). We're going to play "Oscar Trivia." So, how are we going to do this? Read More
If you've ever lost a device or had one stolen, then you know what a gut-wrenching feeling that can be. All of your personal data, contacts, e-mail, social networking, photos, and more in the hands of a stranger or thief? The very thought of it is sickening.
If you want a better chance of retrieving your lost or stolen device, then you have to be proactive about the matter. One of the top apps on the Market for hunting your down missing device is, of course, SeekDroid. Read More
Remember yesterday, when we introduced you to an adorable USB charger named Andru? In case you missed it, Andru, from Gen, is a cute Android accessory that "wants to charge your phone." This little guy is not only a USB charger, but an awesome cubicle decoration. Modeled after the bugdroid we all know and love, Andru's power-plug legs can be hidden by a matching base, he has moveable arms, and his eyes light up blue, making Andru perhaps the most dynamic, fun USB charger you'll ever encounter.
