Sony has steadfastly refused to abandon its smart watch plans for Android Wear, which is totally its call. It might not work out well down the road, but you can get your hands on Sony's latest Smartwatch SW2 right now on the cheap. How cheap? Just $119.99 with free shipping (continental US only).
Mondays can be rough, but a few deals on cool apps and games could turn things around. It's almost like Friday on a Monday. Well, maybe not. Saving money is fun and all, but I'm sorry I got your hopes up like that. It's still Monday.
Like it or not, TV-based operating systems aren't going away. Google TV, Samsung Smart TV, and others have all done their part to beef up your TV's IQ, and while each has found varying levels of success, none has quite gotten the situation right. One immediate problem with most options is the tool you're provided with out-of-the-box for controlling things. Typing in movie titles with anything that looks like a traditional remote is nothing short of a complete pain. Read More
If you want a Chromecast, you probably already have one - that's kind of the point of pricing something in the range of an impulse purchase. The early supply issues have been worked out, new and updated apps with Chromecast support are practically flooding into the Play Store, and Google's tiny streamer has even made its way to Europe. But if you're an American who refuses to pay retail, you'll be glad to know that the Chromecast is once again on sale for $29.99 at both Amazon and Best Buy. Read More
Regular slate tablets are not for you. No sir/ma'am, you demand flexibility and utility from your electronics. Lenovo's Yoga line might be more accommodating for your needs, since it uses a unique chassis that combines a kickstand, an ergonomic handle, a massive battery pack, and a pair of stereo speakers into one bulbous side of the device. Today's Best Buy deal of the day is the 8-inch Yoga Tablet, on sale for $70 off. Read More
So you want the new Samsung flagship, and you want it at a discount. You're also not part of a family plan (so the admittedly nice Buy One, Get One deal isn't for you) and you're deathly afraid of papercuts, so the current mail-in rebate promotion from Verizon is out. Don't worry, picky penny-pincher: Amazon is here to save the day with a $99.99 Samsung Galaxy S5, no conditions or hoops required. Read More
Okay, so Google TV didn't work out exactly as Google probably hoped it would. While not technically dead, Google TV is at least on life support while Google pushes the $35 Chromecast dongle. If you still want to give Google TV a shot, Groupon is offering an Asus Cube for less (after rebate) than the cost of a Chromecast.
Amazon is no stranger to offering solid deals on brand-spankin-new handsets (and with Wirefly out of the way, it essentially has little-to-no competition these days), and it's now offering a great deal for potential Sprint customers who are considering the HTC One M8.
For the time being, Sprintsters can grab the handset for $150 on-contract – a good price in itself – but those who open a new line of service will also get a $50 Amazon gift card. Read More
Google won a lot of minds when it unveiled Android Wear, and Motorola made off with a ton of hearts when it followed up with the Moto 360. The thing is, not everyone wants a device that's so integrated with their Google accounts, and this leaves room for earlier smartwatch manufacturers to wiggle. The Sony SmartWatch brand has been around long enough to draw quite a few apps into its ecosystem, making it worth a look for some. Read More
