No one wants to drop $700-800 on an unlocked smartphone, but that might be your only option if you want the latest and greatest sans contract. In the case of the new Galaxy S4, eBay has been offering some compelling deals culminating in today's $599.99 offer. It's a heck of a deal!

Have you ever considered using Android as your desktop OS? According to CNET, Acer wants you to, as it plans to announce a new all-in-one PC that forgoes Microsoft's OS for Google's free offering. The Acer AIO is said to pack a fourth generation Intel Core i5 chip – which is based on the Haswell architecture – so the unit should be pretty powerful and snappy.

The real allure to this new offering, however, isn't what's under the hood – it's the price.

The long summer months are a hard time in the life of a football fan. The NFL Draft is a bitter memory, and September is a long-anticipated hope, a promise after three months and forty years wandering in the sports desert. It's also the time when the infrastructure for America's most popular game gets a much-needed refresh, and today that includes the official NFL.com Fantasy Football app. The app has been updated for the 2013 season, with all the new players, updated stats, and a vastly improved user interface.

There's a lot happening in the CyanogenMod world this morning. First and most importantly, the AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 now has official CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.2) support, following the T-Mobile and Canadian versions. According to this Google+ post, supporting the AT&T S4 was simply a matter of patching a previous build. One nightly ROM is available at the time of writing, with more stable releases sure to follow soon.

Last week we reported that British Sky Broadcasting Group's Google Play apps and Twitter account had been compromised by the Syrian Electronic Army, a fringe group of hackers and digital vandals in support of the current Syrian government. After the hack was discovered, Sky's apps published under the BSkyB label were removed from the Play Store. Sky reports that the app descriptions were defaced, but the apps files (APKs) themselves were never replaced.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 was announced alongside its smaller sibling, the Mega 5.8, early last month. Given their enormity and relatively middling specifications, we didn't expect to see the monster handsets come stateside. Now, it seems like at least one of them will, and it's the Mega 6.3.

A recent Bluetooth SIG filing for model SPH-L600 - a designation with basically no known history - contains little information of use, other than confirming this is a Samsung handset with LTE bound for Sprint, as can be deduced from the model prefixes.

I don't have kids, so it's entirely possible I don't "get it." By "it" I mean this freaky robot teddy bear that sends and receives text messages because 2005 still had one more horror movie on its to-do list that it forgot to tell us about. That's what MessagePetz are. They're teddy bears that have a cold, black screen with bright blue LEDs shoved into their torsos.

Of course, maybe I'm being too hard on this thing.
