Razer never seemed to really get behind its Android TV device. As far as we can tell, review units for the Forge TV were never sent to any of the tech media (not that we're bitter or anything. Razer. Not at all), and after brutal user reviews were splattered all over the Internet, the device still doesn't support the Android TV version of Netflix. Razer never released the neat-o mouse-and-keyboard combo designed specifically for couch gaming, the company's alternative to NVIDIA's PC game streaming software still hasn't materialized, and there have been no mentions of software updates or even notable game releases since the Forge TV launched in April.

Are you buying things with Samsung Pay? Samsung is willing to give you a bunch of stuff to give its new service a go. In the past it promised free wireless chargers to anyone who activated Samsung Pay for the first time. It has since taken forever to mail them out.
The last deal expired a couple days ago. Now the smartphone maker is back with an offer that is arguably better. Read More
As is often the case with technological innovation, the 2nd gen Moto 360 is a better product than its predecessor. And just as unsurprisingly, the older model continues to drop in price. Whereas starting this summer you could snag one on the Google Store for $150, the circular smartwatch now goes for $100. Read More
Google has a number of neat case options in the Google Store for this year's Nexus phones. If you've been planning on picking up one of the official cases like the "Adopted" model, you might want to pay attention to the buttons. It actually makes taking a screenshot almost impossible. If you've already got one of the official cases and have thus far been under the impression you are losing your mind, you'll be happy to know it's not you. Read More
HTC's latest Hot Deal is indeed a hot one if you've got a hankering for some cheap phones. HTC is offering a tiered percentage discount across its entire online store right now that starts at 15% and goes up to 30%. As usual, the deal is only valid today and "while supplies last." And of course, this is US-only. Read More
Netflix is a great resource for parents wanting to occasionally entertain their kids with some educational shows without all the crappy Skylander commercials. There is just one issue – the content is only available when you have an active internet connection.
Which, in the days of broad LTE and WiFi coverage, is an easy thing to take for granted. That is, until you board a five-hour flight with a toddler in your lap, seated between two people who are looking at your child with a mixture of disdain and loathing. You can see in their eyes that they are just waiting to criticize your parenting as soon as your kid starts to cry. Read More
The Galaxy View is Samsung's biggest tablet, and the company is positioning it as a sort of all-purpose, general-use device for an entire household rather than a conventional mobile device. To that end they've released another exclusive app for the 18.4-inch tablet, Family Square. According to the description in the Play Store, it's meant to be a digital bulletin board, allowing multiple users to post photos to the app which are then displayed on the screen.
The setup is... unique. Instead of simply pulling photos from Facebook or Google+ accounts, Family Square needs to connect to individual phones, presumably over the local Wi-Fi network. Read More
The Chromecast is already a pretty fantastic deal for a streaming gadget, and it just keeps on giving. It looks like Google is repeating the $6 offer it extended back in February, giving users six bucks of Play Store credit for each Chromecast and Android TV box associated with their account. The credit stacks - I have both a Chromecast and a SHIELD TV, so I now have $12 in credit just begging to be used. Thanks, Big G.
We've seen this credit activated for both the original and updated version of the Chromecast, plus the SHIELD TV and Nexus TV. Read More
