[Deal Alert] Refurbished Braven 600 Bluetooth Speaker On Woot For $34.99 With $5 Shipping ($67 New)

Bluetooth speakers come in at a variety of price points and corresponding quality levels. Some have more features, and others emphasize sound. But sometimes you see such a good deal that it almost doesn't matter what the speaker does. Woot has the Braven 600 Bluetooth speaker on sale today for just $34.99. It's a refurb, but you'll save a lot on a pretty good speaker.

We reviewed it last year and were happy with the device. It has since been bested by other products, but the price is right. Amazon is selling the new Braven 600 for $67.

The Braven 600 is all aluminum and puts out good sound.

PSA: Keyboard Shortcuts For Screenshots Are Back In The Web Version Of The Google Play Store

The new Play Store is certainly snazzy, but a lot of the functionality of the older site has been missing ever since it got a fresh coat of digital paint. One of the most bemoaned omissions was contextual keyboard shortcuts, especially handy for touch typists whose fingers never leave the keys. (ThinkPad users, I'm looking at you.) Good news, everyone: as of late yesterday, they're back.

On any single app listing, press the left or right arrow keys to navigate between the posted screenshots. (You may need to click on one first.) Pressing Escape will return the screenshots to the gallery view, or you can just press the left arrow key until it minimizes.

Meet The Motorola Skip: An NFC Clip That Unlocks Your Moto X And Has No Business Costing $20

Update: Motorola posted more concrete details on the Skip in an official blog post. It's made out of fabric, not metal, which implies that the clasp uses a couple of magnets. On the plus side, the Skip includes three "dots" - NFC stickers that can be paired in the same manner and bypass a lock screen or PIN. The Skip will be included free with Moto Maker purchases.

Near-field communication has some pretty cool applications. With a little work you can set it up to automatically unlock your phone, say, when you put it in a dock. Motorola thinks that's a pretty neat idea, and also that you need something similar for your pants.

Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Gets Official CyanogenMod Support, First 10.1 Nightly Available Now

Talk about a blast from the past: the Sprint Galaxy S II, released way back in 2011, now has official CyanogenMod support. Most of the other international and regional versions of the GSII are already supported to some degree, but I'm sure there are more than a few Sprint customers who are happy to see the most popular custom ROM family come to their devices. There's one nightly of CM10.1 (Android 4.2) available at the time of writing.

The phone's official title is the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, because someone at Sprint knows how to start naming a device, but doesn't know how to stop.

Pay What You Want For McPixel In This Week's Humble Weekly Sale, Get Four Other Non-Android Games As A Bonus

Just like last week's Humble Weekly Sale, there is only one Android game available in today's new bundle. This time it's McPixel, but considering the game usually costs $2.99 on Google Play, it's still worth your while to jump in on this pay-what-you-want deal. That said, this game is so, well, odd that it still might be worth trying out the free version before ponying up however much (or little) you want to contribute to this bundle.

McPixel

In addition to McPixel, this week's bundle includes Botanicula, Thomas Was Alone, The Showdown Effect, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The last game on the list requires consumers to pay more than the average, which is currently still less than McPixel's usual $2.99 asking price.

Samsung Starts Bundling 2A Charger With Qi Charging Pad, Raises Price Just Enough To Put It Out Of 50% Off Coupon's Reach

Samsung took its time getting a Qi charger out the door, but they were finally available for purchase a few weeks ago. At $49.99 it was a reasonably good deal as far as wireless chargers go, but it didn't come with a wall charger to power the device. Now the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad includes the recommended 2A charger for $10 more, but that's not the best deal as it turns out.

2013-08-15 12_41_57-Wireless Charging Pad

Samsung lists the charger separately for $39.99, which is insane. So by that bizarre measure, this is a good deal. However, we've tried using this Qi device with a 1A charger and it was fine.

[New App] VeriFone Launches Way2Ride, A Cab Hailing Service To Compete In New York's Increasingly Crowded Market

Getting around New York City can be a bit of a chore, but there are a growing number of options out there. Today VeriFone has launched Way2Ride, a mobile app that makes it easier for New Yorkers to hail a cab and pay the fare using just their phone. Yes, it's jumping into an area that Uber has honed over the years and others are seeking to dominate, but there's a chance there are lower rates to be found here.

Way2Ride allows users to hail a cab using their phone, but those who snag one the old fashioned way can still turn to the app as a means of payment, rather than having to fumble for the credit card in their wallet.
