Packt Publishing has been doing something pretty crazy for a little over a year by giving away free developer-oriented eBooks from its collection every day. Well, almost every day – they took a few days off last month. All you have to do is create an account and drop in on the web page to claim each book before the timer runs out. If you've been thinking about developing a game for Android and want a book to guide you through some of the ins and outs, hurry over to Packt right now and claim Android Game Programming by Example before it's gone.

Of the few security cameras I have tried (Canary, Piper, Blink), Canary is easily my favorite. It automatically turns to away mode when I'm not around, records short clips when it detects motion, lets me turn the privacy feature on when I'm there, doesn't require any constant fiddling on my part, and integrates with Wink for a lot of automations. I find that the free plan suits me with its 24 hours of recorded motion clips and unlimited bookmarks and downloads, but if I were to travel or get more cameras like that spiffy new Flex, I'd surely need the Membership plan.

Motorola took a leap with the Moto Z this year by focusing on the modular accessories known as Mods. That meant a few design sacrifices had to be made, including a small-ish battery on the Moto Z and a non-ergonomic flat back panel. I don't think these phones stand up to the competition at full price, but at half price or free, it's hard to complain. That's the deal at Best Buy right now for the Verizon-branded versions.

As many will know, Google Play has certain apps on sale every week for 0.10 in the UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Russia, and Australia. This week is no different, with both Wild Blood and Unified Remote Full on offer.
Wild Blood is set in the time of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and Lancelot. King Arthur, fuelled by jealousy for Lancelot for seducing Guinevere, gets tricked by his sister, Morgana, and opens Hellgate, letting all manner of demons lose. Morgana, meanwhile, has captured Guinevere and is holding her hostage on the ancient island of Avalon. Lancelot must confront Morgana and King Arthur in order to save Guinevere and the kingdom.

Google's official VR headset for the Pixel and Pixel XL, the Daydream View, isn't absolutely necessary to enjoy the phones. But since owners have one of the only pieces of hardware on the planet currently compatible with the Daydream platform, it would be a shame to let the opportunity to check it out pass by. Google agrees... or at the very least, they have an overabundance of stock since the initial freebie preorders ran out. At the moment the headset is $30 off on the Google Store. Read More
There's been a lot of talk about the new NVIDIA SHIELD this morning, but no one has told you how to get a good deal on it yet. It's a good thing your buddy Jeff at AP cares about your wallet and wants to make sure you get the best price available. That best price is at Best Buy. The blue box retailer currently has a promotion running with Visa Checkout that will take $25 off any purchase of $100. Well, I say any purchase, but there are tons of excluded products and categories (including basically everything Amazon and Google makes). Fortunately, the SHIELD is not excluded, meaning you can pick one for just $175. Read More
As far as Bluetooth speakers go, the UE ROLL 2 is probably one of the best, at least if you're aiming at under $100. However, now you can score one for $68 at Amazon and Wal-Mart, provided you're OK with grey or blue. Read More

With the adapters you can convert your existing MicroUSB cables into USB Type-C cables. Read More
360 cameras are awesome. I love my LG 360 Cam and find it is perfect for encapsulating a moment in time into one shot and letting you sort of travel back in time and immerse yourself in everything around you during the second the picture or video was taken. If you haven't bought a 360 camera yet and you're wondering what the fuss is about, there's a nice deal on Samsung's Gear 360 today at several retailers dropping the price down to around $273 from its original MSRP of $350.
The Gear 360 has dual 15MP f/2.0 fisheye lenses for 3840 x 1920 360-degree (horizontally and vertically) videos and 30MP still images. Read More
