Google Offers Three Free Standard-Def Movies For Chromebook Owners

Google keeps giving away freebies to customers who buy its hardware. The latest is a trio of free movies from the Play Store for owners of Chrome OS-powered laptops. It's quite nice, but don't head out to buy a copy of Age of Ultron just yet - you get three movies from a relatively limited selection, and they're only in standard definition. So, nice, but not amazing.

Here's the list, or at least the one that we've seen on our personal accounts in the US. Your results may vary:

  • Mission Impossible
  • Mission Impossible II
  • Mission Impossible III
  • Mean Girls
  • Clueless
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Footloose
  • Flashdance
  • Forrest Gump
  • The Spongebob Squarepants Movie
  • The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  • The Last Airbender
  • Charlotte's Web (2006)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

I'm no movie critic, but I'd say that the clear winners among that limited selection are Mission Impossible, Forrest Gump, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

[Deal Alert] Google Offers Another $6 In Free Play Store Credit For Each Chromecast Or Android TV Device You Own

The Chromecast is already a pretty fantastic deal for a streaming gadget, and it just keeps on giving. It looks like Google is repeating the $6 offer it extended back in February, giving users six bucks of Play Store credit for each Chromecast and Android TV box associated with their account. The credit stacks - I have both a Chromecast and a SHIELD TV, so I now have $12 in credit just begging to be used. Thanks, Big G.

We've seen this credit activated for both the original and updated version of the Chromecast, plus the SHIELD TV and Nexus TV.

[Deal Alert] Open Box AT&T Unlocked HTC One M9 Down To $299 On eBay

Love it, like it, or hate it, the HTC One M9 is the current pinnacle of the HTC One series, and as such, commands a pretty heft price when purchased new. The refurbished/open box price, however, has been steadily dropping. Back in September it was available on eBay daily deals for $379, which we thought was a great price. Today, the price has fallen even lower to just under the three Benjamin mark to $299. That's a pretty awesome price for a current-gen flagship.

Of course, being an open box item, there is a chance the phone may have some slight blemishes.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy Is Offering A Refurbished Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth Door Lock For $130 ($70 Off) Today Only

If you've been drooling over Kwikset's Bluetooth-powered, Android-compatible power door locks, but you've been wary of the high entry price, today is the day to bust out your wallet. Best Buy is offering refurbished versions of the Kevo smart lock for $129.99. While that doesn't quite make it into impulse buy territory, it's a generous $60 off the regular price of the refurbished version and $70 off of a new retail unit. You can get free shipping (store pickup is not available), but the price is only good for today.

For the uninitiated, the Kevo is an electronic lock that works with conventional metal keys and can also be controlled via mobile devices or home automation systems.

[Deal Alert] Get The Explosive Sounding Refurbished UE Boom Bluetooth Speaker For Just $120 From Woot

Sound is pretty simple, especially in the form of music. It should be nice. It should be loud when I want it to be. It should fill the room. In the case of Bluetooth speakers, they should be easy to pair. Battery life should be decent. After that, see desired qualities listed for sound.

The Ultimate Ears Boom Bluetooth speaker should meet most of these qualities. Two years ago, our own Cameron Summerson considered this the Bluetooth speaker against which all others should be judged. That still means something, even if it's no longer the latest model.

I'm not an audiophile.

Huawei Is Taking $50 Off The Huawei Watch If You Bundle It With A Nexus 6P

You can (allegedly) buy a Nexus 6P from the Google Store. Heck, that's basically the only place that comes to mind. But if you don't think you can get the phone elsewhere, you're wrong. Huawei will also sell you the phone directly from its site.

[Deal Alert] GSM Unlocked Moto X 2014 Available For $200 On Amazon Today Only - Plastic, Leather, And Bamboo Versions On Sale

The Moto X series has been known for being a good deal when compared to other flagship phones.

Android tablets in the last year haven't been particularly interesting, but I am happy we're finally moving toward the more comfortable 4:3 aspect ratio*. There are a few devices that use that shape, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. It sure is expensive, though. The 9.7-inch variant is a little less spendy today with a deal on BuyDig—just $399.99 with free shipping.

Google Play Is Giving Away A Free Version Of Brad Paisley's Latest Album, Moonshine In The Trunk

You dang kids. Going to "country" concerts in your Honda Civics, smoking your pot behind the port-a-potties. Back in my day* we had real country music, Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins. Not this twangy-pop garbage that pretends that all you have to do to be country is throw on jeans and a cowboy hat, while you wait for NBC to cast you as a celebrity judge on The Voice. Daggum rotten little sdfggggggggggggg...

At this point Michael collapsed on his keyboard, blackout drunk after downing two 12oz bottles of Fat Tire Amber Ale. We apologize for the interruption. Your regularly-scheduled Android Police free album post will now commence without the musical commentary.
