We've already learned that the Pixel 4 is just as quick to receive discounts as the Pixel 3 back in the day as it's $200 off in the Google Store this week. If you're interested in using the device on the Fi network, Google will give you an even crazier price: When you activate the phone through the carrier, it'll give you 50% of the full price back in Google Fi credit. That means you can get the smaller Pixel 4 64GB version for the unbelievable bargain price of $400, while the most expensive Pixel 4 XL 128GB will go for $500. Read More
Want to stuff a couple of stockings for the holidays? Here's a cool suggestion from Amazon: the Kindle Fire HDX 7" 4G LTE. This is last year's Kindle Fire generation but still the newest HDX 7" available — Amazon didn't update the HDX 7" line when it released the new HD 6, 7, and HDX 8.9" this past September. The 4G LTE models are being discounted 50% today only through Amazon Gold Box, while the regular Wi-Fi only models have kept their regular price.
Spec-wise, the HDX 7" line-up is known for its high-resolution 1920 x 1200 display and quad-core 2.2GHz processor. These two factors differentiate it from the regular HD 7 (1280 x 800 display and 1.5GHz quad-core processor). Normally, the HDX 7" is priced way higher than the HD 7, but thanks to this discount, they're in the same range. Read More
After about a month of beta testing and several updates, SwiftKey 4.2 has entered the Play Store for both phones and tablets. Without a doubt, the most significant feature in today's update is cloud sync that synchronizes your personal dictionaries between multiple devices.
Cloud sync uses your Google account for authentication and, in addition to syncing predictions, can also periodically download currently trending phrases as well as data from Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, and RSS feeds. Multiple accounts are supported, and it only takes a single tap to set up Gmail and Facebook learning thanks to native API integration - both nice and welcomed touches. Read More
There are people who don't care about weather forecasts (like me), people who do care (probably the majority of you), and then there are people who want to know everything about the weather to the point that these images a) make sense and b) replace porn for them. If you belong to the latter category and haven't bought the pricey $9.99 PYKL3 Radar yet, I have some good news that may just help pull the trigger.
The app is on sale for 50% off, making it $4.99. That's half of RadarScope's price too, which I would say is its primary competitor. Read More
After a short delay, Sprint is now ushering Samsung's highly anticipated successor to the popular Galaxy S III to store shelves, but how much does it cost? New customers can pick up the Galaxy S4 with a two-year contract for $149, but existing customers looking to upgrade must plop down $249 to bring home the same phone. This isn't the best of news for current Sprint customers, but there is now another option available.
As of today, Amazon is allowing existing Sprint customers to upgrade for $50 less. This brings the price of upgrading an existing contract down to levels resembling the price of starting a contract anew. Read More
Amazon's Gold Box deals are some of my favorite discounts to check out every morning. In fact, outside of the Gold Box, the only other deal destinations I regularly visit are Amazon-owned MyHabit and TouchOfModern, a site full of inspiration and ultramodernism.
But back to the deal. If you've been eying Amazon's latest Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet (remember all those holidays that are coming at us fast?), today's Gold Box deal of the day should most definitely make it easier to pull the trigger.
The company is discounting all Fire HD 8.9" variants by a cool $50 - all you have to do is use coupon FIREHD89 at checkout:
Note: Add $15 if you're getting the version without special offers. Read More
For CDMA users, the GSM-exclusive Nexus 4 can be a bit of a bummer. However, if you're looking for the same high-powered specs without leaving the Now Network, you can get the Optimus G which David was actually pretty impressed by. Right now, Wirefly and Sprint are both accepting pre-orders for this device, though the former is offering it for about $50 cheaper than you would pay getting it straight from the carrier.
Of course, that's with a new two year contract or an upgrade on your existing line. Still, it's a nice little chunk of change to have knocked off. Read More
Residents of the great white north have a special treat coming up soon. The Galaxy Note II is coming to Mobilicity the day before Halloween. If you know you're going to want it on day one, though, you can sign up for a pre-order right now and get $50 off. Unfortunately, the ad doesn't specify just what price you'll get $50 off of.
One tipster sent in an email that he received after placing his order. The email seemed to have an additional stipulation that you must be one of the first 1,000 people to purchase and activate your phone. If there are more than 1,000 pre-orders, it's unclear if everyone will receive the $50 credit. Read More

While each of these phones are far from the latest-and-greatest, the fact that you can score a new device without contract for less the two-hundred bucks makes them very appealing. Read More
As part of a back-to-school promotion, remote access software LogMeIn Ignition has received a temporary 50% cut off its normally $30 price tag, making it a very affordable $15. LogMeIn Ignition allows you to access your Mac or PC from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet and remote control it just as if you were sitting in front of it, quickly and easily providing access to all of your files and programs.
Another great use for LogMeIn is remote tech support -- we all have those family members who will call with an issue, and it's so much easier to do it yourself than to explain what needs to be done to someone who probably has little idea what you're talking about in the first place. Read More
