What's better than cloud back-up? Local back-up, I hear you say. But how about both? If your ears perked up, this StackSocial deal could be your answer.

The Nexus 6 is a very expensive phone compared to the last few Nexus devices. However, it also makes fewer compromises. If you are close to pulling the trigger now that supply is starting to (kind of) catch up with demand, T-Mobile has a deal going that might push you over the edge—it's brought back the $48 discount code for both storage options.

These are new units discounted to a lower price than refurbished ones went for back in August. Read More
When we first heard about the Skiva PowerFlow OctoFire, Bertel called it the Bugatti Veyron of USB hubs. With 8 ports that are all capable of going up to 2.1A of output and a total of 84 Watts, the OctoFire doesn't skimp on power. You could plug 8 Nexus 9s simultaneously and they should all charge as fast as if you were using a regular wall charger with no limit on the allocation of wattage to each port. Read More
There are immeasurable options for portable Bluetooth speakers these days, but if you want big sound without saying goodbye to audio fidelity, you're going to have to spend some considerable cash. Case in point: the Jawbone BIG JAMBOX, though very well-received by reviewers, is outside of most consumers' accessory budget at $300.

The original Moto X was a breath of fresh air when it debuted in 2013, but Verizon didn't want any part of Motorola's relatively open stance when it came to unlockable bootloaders and customization (as usual). To alleviate this for users who wanted an easy path to root, software backups, and custom ROMs, Motorola offered the Moto X Developer Edition, a full-priced 32GB phone that users could unlock by requesting a code.
