The Moto Gamepad Mod will cost $79.99 and only be available through Verizon

It's like Motorola keeps shooting itself in the foot, over and over and over again. One of the most interesting Mods it announced to date, the Gamepad, will soon go on sale but you won't be able to buy it everywhere and it will cost a pretty penny.

How pretty? $79.99. For a few buttons and a 1035mAh battery. That's really pushing it. At $49.99, this would have been palatable. At $79.99, it's pushing the boundary of what Motorola can get away with and falls in line with the company's strategy of using its phones as Mods money grabs to maximize on its profit margin.

Verizon Galaxy S8 and S8+ updated with new navigation bar features and Daydream support (but not really)

Earlier this month, T-Mobile Galaxy S8s received an update that reportedly enabled Daydream, but Daydream was (and still is) incompatible. T-Mobile later updated its changelog to reflect this. However, Verizon hasn't learned from Team Magenta's mistake and is reporting Daydream support in their new update's changelog as well. But things you do get include an updated navigation bar (for better or for worse), as well as the ability to send GIFs during phone calls.

Sprint mocks Verizon's prices with hilarious 'Twice the Price' ad campaign

With most commercials in the US, companies compare their products to "the leading brand" or "competing product." But not so in the telecom industry. Carriers often go after their competitors with satirical ads and CEO rants, calling out each other on their claims and figures.
