[Deal Alert] Skiva PowerFlow OctoFire 8-Port USB Charger For $55 On Touch Of Modern

When we first heard about the Skiva PowerFlow OctoFire, Bertel called it the Bugatti Veyron of USB hubs. With 8 ports that are all capable of going up to 2.1A of output and a total of 84 Watts, the OctoFire doesn't skimp on power. You could plug 8 Nexus 9s simultaneously and they should all charge as fast as if you were using a regular wall charger with no limit on the allocation of wattage to each port.

Plex App Updated To v3.9 With Partial Material Redesign, New Single-App Model, And More

If you're going to watch local video files on your mobile device or Chromecast, Plex is one of the best ways to do it. This app relies on a server on your PC that transcodes almost any file and streams it to the app so you don't have to carry everything around. Today's update to v3.9 doesn't change the basic functionality, but it cuts down on the number of apps and brings a modest redesign.

[Updated][Mildly Interesting] Guy Buys A Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE For Verizon, Except That It's Not Supposed To Exist

Update: After posting this, we heard from employees who work for authorized retailers, as well as customers who verified that this was not a freak thing. These Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE models for Verizon were, in-fact, sold in very limited quantities.

From the evidence available, it seems that some indirect, non-corporate retailers received stock around the 2014 holiday season and were almost always selling the tablets for $99 on contract.

WSJ: Google's Nova Carrier Will Be Able To Switch Between Sprint And T-Mobile Depending On Which Has The Best Signal

Almost every carrier story we post has at least a few versions of the following comments—"I would totally use carrier X, but it doesn't work very well where I live," and, "I don't know why everyone is always talking smack about carrier Y, it works great in my area." According to the Wall Street Journal, Google's rumored MVNO could put an end to that by not only supporting both T-Mobile and Sprint, but by switching between the networks automatically depending on which signal is better.

[Update: Deal Is Back] BLU Studio Energy 2, With A 5000mAh Battery, Is $130 On Amazon ($50 Off Retail)

If battery life is the most important factor of a new phone purchase, there's probably no better bang for the buck than the BLU Studio Energy 2, even at its normal price. Cameron gave it a decent recommendation in his hands-on post a couple of months ago. Shoppers who are in the market for a mid-range phone that lasts more or less forever can pick it up from Amazon with a significant discount. The phone's price dropped by $50, bringing the total down to an impressive $129.99.

Update: Google says that the Nexus Player is also available from TigerDirect. The official Nexus Twitter account also mentions Wal-Mart and Fry's Electronics, though it isn't available from their online sites, so it may only be on sale in brick-and-mortar stores. Staples' online store is also mentioned, but as of noon Monday, the Nexus Player isn't listed. Amazon now has an official listing from Asus available at the standard $99 price with free Prime shipping.
