The Fire TV Stick is a slimmed-down version of the Fire TV streaming device, and Amazon's answer to the Chromecast. It's also sold out until January 15th on Amazon.com, no doubt due to the massive amount of Amazon Prime users who have taken advantage of the 50% off promotion. But if you're hunting for one for yourself or for a present, Best Buy has it in stock right now, and at a significant discount.
You don't need a lot of money to get your hands on Android 5.0. You don't need a current device, either. The Nexus 4 and 2012 Nexus 7, despite being over two years old at this point, both get to taste Lollipop.
Picking up either of these devices is one of the more affordable ways to play around with Google's latest software. But Expansys USA is holding a blowout sale where it will let you digitally walk out with both devices for as low as $159.99.
Crescent Moon is a solid publisher of Android games, offering titles from a variety of developers across nearly every genre. Today it's the latest company to partner with Humble, offering an impressive collection of Android games in a DRM-free format with a "pay what you want" structure. Four of the games included in today's bundle can't be had on the Play Store, at least at the moment. Right now you can pay $8 to get all ten titles, and more are on the way.
It's getting to be the time of year that retailers pull out all the stops and try to make some cash. Amazon in particular needs to make up some ground after that Fire Phone fiasco. Well, you can reap the rewards now with some solid deals on phones from AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. These are on-contract sales, but you can't get too upset about a $1 phone.
The LG G Watch R, which David thinks is the best Android Wear has to offer for now, is an interesting device - it's an Android Wear device that has a circular screen, one that's actually a circle, escaping the "flat tire" design choice Motorola had to make for the Moto 360. But it also has a big funky angled bezel with numbers on it (like some real watches). Still, it's a solid device for the burgeoning category, with a 1.3" POLED display and 410mAh battery.
It's definitely not as cool or timeless as that Guardians of The Galaxy deal, it's probably limited to the US or a few countries, it's likely not the most targeted deal for our audience, but we still feel compelled to let you know that Google is offering Lorde's Pure Heroine album for free right now on Play Music.
If this is your jam, you'll be happy to find 10 songs in Lorde's album, including the chart-topper "Royals," and a few other interesting songs like, "Tennis Court," and "Glory And Gore." Unfortunately, this isn't the Extended Release, so you'll be missing out on the catchy, "No Better." I'd better stop typing before I completely morph into Ryan Seacrest.
Andru is probably the most adorable power adapter in the universe. The bugdroid-inspired plug has movable arms, flexible antennae, and light-up eyes (blue means charging, white is for standby), making it a perfect desk charger and about 100 times more dynamic than the average power brick.
The 2.5" adapter has 5V/1A DC output, and normally costs $25 each for an Andru, Andru Dark, Andru Chill, or Andra (pink) unit. In preparation for holiday shopping (or just for fun, who knows?) PowerbyGen is offering all four variants together for just $65, about $35 off the normal price of a full set.
