Even though eBay hasn't had a site-wide coupon in months, it's still a great place for finding new and used electronics, and we regularly post about its sales. However, you might want to double-check the purchase amount the next time you buy something, as eBay now charges sales tax in 13 more U.S states. Read More
Here's a mildly interesting story discovered by one member of the CyanogenMod Reddit board. Apparently the state congress of Indiana uses a custom setup to allow its state senators and representatives to submit votes.

You know the drill by now. It's time for some new LTE market announcements! Woo! Party hard. The network rollouts today are coming to Pennsylvania, California, Indiana, Virginia and Puerto Rico. This comes on the heels of Sprint announcing its intention to purchase the remaining shares of Clearwire that it didn't already own.
Here's the list of new cities:
- Indianapolis/Carmel, Ind.
- Santa Rosa/Petaluma, Calif.
- Vallejo/Fairfield, Calif.
- Southern Puerto Rico (including Ponce, Coamo and Guayama)
- York/Hanover, Pa.
- Franklin County, Pa.
- Page County, Va.
- Enhanced 4G LTE coverage around Shenandoah County, Va.
Not a bad set of additions. There is still much to be seen in regards to Sprint's LTE network rollout, particularly over the next year. Read More

We've gotten our all-too-idle hands on several of these games and, let me tell you, some impressive things are being brought to the table. While flipping through the games and wasting all of my time, one game stuck out to me. Maybe it was the nostalgic feel of it. Maybe it was the Indiana Jones throwback feeling of it. Maybe it was because I really like being able to flaunt my high score to the world. Whatever the reason, I'm a big fan of this game; so much so, in fact, that I made a video of me playing and talking about it. Read More
