I'm going to assume that you've never heard of Reserve, because unless you live in Boston, Los Angeles, New York, or San Francisco, there hasn't been much of a reason for the product to enter your radar. The concierge service lets people in these four cities pick a place to eat, reserve a table, and pay for the food all from a single app. It's cool, and now it's available on Android.
Reserve doesn't need much information to get the job done. Just tell it how many people are coming and when you want to arrive. If the establishment you're interested in doesn't have an opening, the app will try to recommend something similar. Read More
The Pebble sure wasn't the first smart watch, but it's been getting a lot of attention lately. In fact, wearable computing as an industry is seeing a bit of a resurgence in general. The trouble, at least as one company sees it, is that smart watches require you to already have an expensive phone. That's two batteries you have to keep charged! Craziness!

Savored, an app exclusively partnered with OpenTable to bring users an excellent reservation system and great savings, launched officially on Android today, bringing users in select cities across the country the ability to book reservations at quality dining establishments and save a ton of cash at the same time.
Savored's arrival on Android coincides with the end of its $10 booking fee, meaning reservations (along with membership) are totally free. Better still, the incredible discounts Savored offers are coupon-less, with discounts applied automatically to your bill.
The only down side to Savored is that it is as yet only available in select cities (including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. Read More
Confirming our suspicion that Sprint's variant of the Galaxy Nexus would be available on the 22nd, a pre-order page has gone live at Sprint.com, allowing customers to reserve Samsung's first Ice Cream Sandwich-powered device for just $199 with a two-year agreement.
What's more, the Now Network's pre-order page suggests that customers who buy early may just get their hands on a Galaxy Nexus sooner than expected:
Order online today, we’ll charge your card for your phone today and we’ll do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on Sunday, April 22.
As another added bonus, those who activate a Google Wallet account within a week of getting their Nexus will get a $10 instant credit, and an additional $40 credit "within two weeks."
In case you've forgotten why Sprint's version of the Galaxy Nexus is exciting, here are some of its specs:
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- 4.65" Super AMOLED display at 720x1280 (that's ~316 ppi)
- 32GB Internal storage
- 1GB RAM
- 1.2GHz Dual-core processor
- 1850mAh battery
