Hollywood is bringing The Martian by Andy Weir to life on the big screen in a few months, but you can get the original novel for a pittance if you act quick. This book is usually $9.99 on Google Play, but it's on sale for $1.99 right now. Amazon has also lowered its price to match, as it tends to do. Read More
Those who are always on the lookout for a good buy probably have some experience with Slickdeals. The web's most popular location for bargain hunting isn't new to Android, but the experience on mobile has always been a little bit lacking. As Slickdeal's current app has gotten fairly stale, they have not been sitting on their hands. Now in beta, an update to v3.0 features a completely revamped look with better spacing, tabs instead of a hamburger menu, and a smoother overall experience.
While some might call it blasphemy, this update arguably becomes better in spite of being a departure from Material Design. Read More
Was the free Play: Blues Pioneers album from a few days ago not enough to satisfy your need for the blues? Silly question. What type of fan is ever happy after one album? So here's another. Google Play is giving out free digital copies of Buddy Guy's Born to Play Guitar.
Buddy Guy is 79 years old, and he's been making music for longer than most of our readers have been alive. Maybe even their parents. Born to Play Guitar came out this year, but it's just one in oh-dear-god-has-Buddy-Guy-really-made-this-many-albums?
Wow. Yeah. Go download this one. It comes with sixteen tracks and lasts for over an hour. Read More
Are you ready for the weekend? Impossible, because you haven't splurged on discounted apps and games. Hey, what else are you going to use all that Google survey money on? Read More
Regular charging is just so lame, right? Quick Charging is totally where it's at, but many phones that support Quick Charge 2.0 don't come with compatible chargers. Even when they do, you probably don't have spares for around the house or in the car. Well, now you can pick some up for cheap thanks to Newegg. Read More
The new Moto X is set to come out in a week or two, but the 2014 model is still a fine device. It's even more fine if you can get one for a mere $180, as you can today on eBay. This is the Verizon model of the phone (XT1096), but that means it's unlocked and should work fine on GSM carriers. Read More
When Amazon launched the Fire Phone, it wasn't a top-of-the-line device. It did, however, come with a $650 price tag. When the handset immediately proceeded to not sell, Amazon started slashing the price. We've spent the time since watching the number drop. Read More
The Anker 5-port USB charger is a way to take that cluster of chargers that's turning the power strip behind your sofa into a fire hazard and consolidate it down into something manageable. With enough ports to charge five devices at once, you're also freeing up much-needed power outlets.
Last year this hub was available for $16 on Amazon if you used a coupon code that dropped the price down from $20. Those of you who meander over to the device's page today may find that it's gone down a bit since then. That's right, now it's only $12. And no, you don't need to fumble with any promotional codes.

Alright, the Chromecast may not rank high on the list of devices you're waiting to catch a deal on. $35 isn't the kind of price that has you setting aside paychecks. A kid could get one relatively quickly just by saving up their allowance.
But what if you could get one for $20? That's nearly half off, and the price is low enough to be well into the impulse buy category. Really, what other tech product can you spend so little on and get so much use out of in return? Okay, maybe a 4-port USB Quick Charger 2.0 car charger. Read More
The Asus ZenWatch never had a moment where it was wildly hailed as the most luxurious Android Wear watch, but it was still a relatively stylish device. Was it worth $200? That depends on who's answering. But for those who said no, here's a way to make the smartwatch more compelling—but you're going to have to jump through some hoops.
First, head to Newegg. There you will see the ZenWatch reduced down to $150 (the same price offered at Amazon). Add it to your cart and enter the coupon code VCO2015BTS. It will save you $10, but only if you complete your purchase using Visa Checkout. Read More
