Groupon’s major Super Samsung event is up and running, presenting deals on a range of new and manufacturer refurbished products. For example, if you need a 55″ curved 4K TV, you can get one for $650. Want a replacement charger for your Galaxy S7? They have them for $10. There’s even the Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds available for $99. (more…)
For the 2nd year in a row, Amazon ranked #1 in a poll about their corporate reputation. Normally, we don’t care about stuff like this, but when that ranking turns into a discount for you, we are happy to acknowledge the accomplishment. Good job, Amazon.
OK, so that ranking has Amazon in the rewarding mood, which means a discount on any order you place today over $50. The discount is $8.62, which is Amazon thanking customers for their record 86.27 rating in the Harris Poll I mentioned above. Cool, right?
In order to get the discount, simply enter in “BIGTHANKS” at checkout. That’s it. Now, go shopping.
As a part of a teaser for the new UX we’ll see in the upcoming LG G6, LG talked a lot about squares and the fact that the phone’s 18:9 display ratio allows for perfect 1×1 viewing of content.

This may not come as a shock to anyone paying attention, but Samsung, with the Galaxy Note 7 recall and now this massive political scandal, has lost major reputation points around the globe.

My mention of Samsung’s navigation button order being “wrong” in the previous post seems to have sparked quite the conversation over which order people prefer. Of course, when that happens, a poll must follow, thus the existence of this follow-up post.
So let’s decide once and for all! Do you prefer the back button to be on the left, where Google, creator of the platform that all Android phones are built upon, has placed it and where almost everyone other Android OEM places it, or should the back button go on the right, where Samsung, king of smartphone makers who (rightfully) laughs at all who question its decisions, puts it?
Left or right. You must choose.
With what seems like more devices than ever supporting expandable storage, we are always on the lookout for deals on microSD cards. The latest we’ve spotted is on Amazon — $16 for a 64GB card from SanDisk or $48 for a Samsung 128GB . (more…)
