Android Pay replaced Google Wallet last year, and with that change came more integration with banks. That meant rewards would be processed on your Android Pay purchases (yay), but it also meant that banks had to actually support the platform (boo). Google just added a ton of new banks to the list of supported institutions on the Android Pay site, and one of them is Capital One. Finally. Read More
The Nexus Player was Google's first take on Android TV, and it wasn't very good. It's gone from the Google Store now, so good riddance? Well, there isn't exactly a replacement yet. Read More
Honda offers Android Auto on the 2016 Civic and Accord, but the 2017 NSX will be the first vehicle from Honda's luxury brand, Acura. Read More
The Raspberry Pi 3 appears to be on track to receive official AOSP support from Google. At least, that is the most obvious conclusion based on the fact that Google has created a code repository for it within the same directory that also includes the Nexus devices and generic source code.
The Raspberry Pi 3, the latest iteration of the cheap, simple, and small computer, is marketed as a device to promote more engagement with computer science and programming. It has also gained a great deal of support from DIY types, who have rigged them up for all manner of uses. Read More

We reported on Pebble's site yesterday, noting that it was teasing a big announcement, which we expected to be a watch. (Although we were kind of off on the shape of said new watch.)
Pebble's not launching just one watch, though: it's launching two, plus a whole new product. The two new watches are sequels to the Pebble and the Time. Predictably, they're called Pebble 2 and Time 2. slowclap.gif
The Pebble 2 is a thinner, lighter version of the original Pebble watch that launched on Kickstarter four years ago. It looks pretty much like that watch, with the same sort of chunky but quite good-looking rectangular face and bezels. Read More
The Cat S60 was announced earlier this year as the first phone to have one of FLIR's thermal camera sensors built right in.

Pre-orders are going to start next month. Read More

JayBird makes some of the best sport-focused Bluetooth headphones around, but they don't make them cheap. The X2 Sport model is normally $150 at retail, but Amazon has several different colors of them on sale today. The white version, and only the white version, is just $99 with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers. The other colors are going for between $109 (black) and $134 (red), which is still a decent discount. Read More
Republic Wireless recently announced it was finally changing the way it runs its service with a GSM partner and support for a number of unlocked phones like the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Galaxy S7. To go along with this v3.0 revamp, the carrier has announced new plans with simpler pricing and higher data tier options. However, the cheapest plan is getting more expensive. Read More
