[Deal Alert] Google Drops Price Of Nexus 6 On Play Store By $150, Offers Nexus 9 With $50 Play Store Gift Card

If you're on the fence about a Nexus 6 or Nexus 9, Google's got a deal going this morning for both devices, though of different types. The Nexus 6 is $150 off on all models, bringing the 32GB version down to $499 and the 64GB to $549. The deal doesn't have a stated expiration, but "save $150" does seem to imply it's probably temporary, as part of a larger father's day promo.

HTC MirrorLink App Comes To The Play Store With Functionality You Will Only Enjoy While Driving

Last month HTC released a little app into the Play Store that provides one way for its devices to connect to other electronics in the home. Today it's uploading one that's all about hooking up to cars. HTC MirrorLink is the manufacturer's app for letting its phones connect to vehicles using, you guessed it, MirrorLink.

When you connect your HTC phone to a MirrorLink-enabled infotainment system using a cord, you will be able to navigate the device using your car's dashboard buttons.

Google Is Apparently Giving Project Fi Customers Who Also Ordered A Nexus 6 Welcome Kits Containing Cases, Earbuds, And External Batteries

You have two options when you sign up for Project Fi. You can buy a SIM card with a new Nexus 6. Or you can just buy the SIM card and stick it in your own Nexus 6. Want to use another phone? You can, as long as you tether it to a Nexus 6. A Project Fi SIM has to go into a Nexus 6.

For the time being, that eliminates a sizable chunk of interested consumers.

LG Releases Its Long Promised Bootloader Unlock Tool, But It Currently Only Supports The G4 For The EU Open Market (H815)

Many moons ago, LG had promised the release of an official bootloader unlock tool for its G3, but the company didn't make good on its word. It seems that the plans were never forgotten though, because LG's Developer site got a new "Unlock Bootloader" page that does just that, except it's not for the G3 (yet).

While bootloader unlocking is quite easy on Nexus devices, almost all other Android phones and tablets suffer from tightly locked bootloaders that require a bit of tinkering to get access to.

[Deal Alert] Groupon's Refurbished $20 Chromecast Deal Is Back For A Limited Time

Even at full price, you could stick a [Deal Alert] tag on just about any box with a Chromecast in it. I mean, the thing costs $35 bucks and turns any TV from a blank screen to something that can play most of what us cord cutting types want to watch these days.

Of course, slashing that price in half makes it even more of a deal. We've seen Groupon offer the Chromecast for just $20 before, but the deal is back, and it's still a great buy.

Google+ Link And 'Share' Shortcut Disappear From The Google Bar

It looks like Google is performing some surgery on the Google bar, the familiar toolbar that appears across the top of many of Google's web properties (including Chrome's new tab page). Until recently, the bar held a G+ sharing shortcut, a profile switcher, an "app drawer" to switch between Google products, and a link shortcut to your Google+ profile.

Today it looks like two of those things have been axed - specifically the Google+ link and the sharing shortcut.

Of course, while "Google+ is dead" sentiments have been floating around virtually since the service's inception, we'll resist the urge to speculate about the rationale behind removing Plus-specific functionality from the bar for now.

US Cellular Version Of The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Gets Its Lollipop (5.0.2) OTA Update

Samsung's latest and most advanced tablet series is the Galaxy Tab S. That's kind of amazing when you consider the company's previous rate of releasing new tablets, and that the Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 were released almost a year ago. But I suppose it's nice if you happen to have one, so Samsung is more motivated to release faster updates. Today the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 on US Cellular gets its Android 5.0 update.

The update information was just posted to Samsung's support site, with a release date marked as today. So the update itself (version T807R4TYUBOE5, Android 5.0.2, if you're wondering) may or may not actually go out over US Cellular's network immediately.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Now Only $400 On eBay

The Galaxy Note 4 was a beast of a device at launch, and as a direct result, it came with a beast of a price tag (the AT&T model in particular still goes for $850). It's the kind of phone that carriers offer for $300 on contact, which is enough money to outright own a decent piece of hardware these days.

Now that the Galaxy S6 exists and we're nearly a year out since the Note 4's launch, it's easier to get the 5.7-inch device at a more reasonable price. Today refurbished units are currently going on eBay for $400.
