Google is finally kicking out unsupported cards from Android Pay in mid-October, causing people to freak out

Last year around this time, Google announced that unsupported cards already in Google Wallet accounts would be able to be used with Android Pay, but only for a limited time. Problem was, we didn't exactly know how long Google's "limited time" would be. Thanks to a ton of emails that were sent out to Android Pay users with unsupported cards today, we now have an actual date: October 14th, 2016.

HTC Views Breast Cancer Awareness Month As The Perfect Time To Sell The Pink HTC One M9 Here In The States

We're at the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means now is a good opportunity to take whatever product you're selling and offer it in pink. HTC has decided to do precisely that. If you want to raise awareness of breast cancer or merely draw attention to that colorful piece of metal you keep raising to your ear, then you're the person who should take advantage of this time to buy a limited edition pink GSM HTC One M9. You can even have the pink ribbon imprinted on the back.

If this hot pink device looks familiar, that's because HTC showed off its flagship in this color back when it launched the device in Taiwan seven months ago.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Temporarily Knocks $100 Off Of The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 And 10.5, Amazon Beats Them By Up To $20

Samsung's top-of-the-line Galaxy Tab S series is legitimately awesome, but the 8.4 and 10.5-inch models are also considerably more expensive than their competitors. For a short time Samsung is discounting both of them by $100 on its official online store. The base 16GB Wi-Fi models of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are now $299.99 and 399.99, respectively, a sale price that's reportedly effective through Saturday, April 11th. Both tablets are available in white and bronze colors with free shipping.


If that's not cheap enough for you (and it's still not all that cheap), Amazon has the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 for $20 less.

OnePlus Gets The Christmas Spirit, Sells The One Without An Invite For A Limited Time

A pair of hop-along boots and a pistol that shoots might be good for Barney and Ben, but they're small comfort if you've been trying to get your hands on the OnePlus One for half a year. Well, now's your chance: just like they did for Black Friday, OnePlus is selling an uncertain number of One phones directly today, no invite, pre-order, or inadvisably dangerous or sexist actions necessary. Just go to the website and buy one.


Both the standard white 16GB model and the 64GB black model with its rather nice textured back are available, at $299 and $349, respectively.

Sprint Offers To Cut AT&T And Verizon Wireless Bills In Half For Customers Who Make The Switch Starting Dec. 5th

Sprint has a plan up its sleeve that it hopes will entice customers to its more affordable network. This time around, rather than competing with T-Mobile, it has its sights set squarely on AT&T and Verizon Wireless. For a limited time starting this Friday, it will offer to cut folks' previous wireless bill in half. So if your old carrier was charging $140 a month, Sprint will let you get by just paying $70 instead.


To help you make the transition, Sprint will pay up to $350 to buy out your existing contract. It will also match the previous data allowance, so your transition over can feel as familiar as possible.

T-Mobile Will Quadruple Its Simple Starter Plan's Data Allotment For $5 Extra Per Month Starting September 3rd

Remember that Sprint and T-Mobile price war we mentioned? Yeah, things are continuing to get better. Today T-Mobile has announced an add-on to its Simple Starter plan that will significantly increase how much LTE data customers can use. For an extra $5 a month, they can bump their allotment up from 500 MB to 2GB. This amounts to four times the data, and it manages to beat out the 1GB of LTE allowed under T-Mobile's $50 Simple Choice plan. The limited-time offer will start on September 3rd.

T-Mobile's press release doesn't make any mention of its own Simple Choice plan, so presumably it will be staying the same.

Sprint has heard your regular complaints about its slow network, your jabs at its decision to cram an r into the word family, and your steady insistence that it just isn't good enough to compete.

The offer supports up to ten lines and will be available starting August 22nd.

Sonic Dash Offers Up The Chance To Play As Bugdroid And An Android Sonic (No, Not Metal Sonic) For A Limited Time

Some characters have to be shoehorned into an endless runner, but for Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog, the genre is a natural fit. Now Sega is offering a Nintendo-style promotion that's only available for Android. Here's your chance to take our lovable green Bugdroid out for a spin, as the developers have dropped it into the game and are daring players to see if machines really are better at everything.

But that's not all. Players who play as Bugdroid fifty times can permanently unlock "Andronic," a disturbingly deformed version of Sonic that looks as though it has been crammed into a soda can and given pills for limbs. Dr.

Splashtop 2 HD Arrives In The Play Store, Is Free For A Limited Time

Splashtop is one of the leading pieces of remote desktop software, not to mention app of choice for NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang when he wants to play Skyrim on his tablet. Now, Splashtop 2 HD has hit the Play Store, bringing pinch-to-zoom support, a new interface, and a very attractive price tag of free, for the time being.

As of right now, the app is free on the Play Store, however Splashtop says that this deal will only be available "for a limited time." Now, according the Play Store rules, a developer cannot convert a free app into a paid app, so it's unclear just how this will work once the developer ends the free period.
