Let’s face it, the times are changing. Instead of gifting hideous Christmas sweaters or gift cards, you can now give the gift of free cellular data, brought to you by Verizon. Through Verizon’s website or through the Verizon Messages app (on Android), you can gift 1GB of high-speed LTE data to a loved one, priced at $10 that is billed directly to your account. (more…)
Remember that new Google Play UI that was teased back in early October, the one we said was starting to rollout the next day? Turns out it didn’t really rollout to many for a good month. But on Friday or Saturday of last week, and continuing on through today, everyone seems to be getting the new look, which features separated front pages for “Apps & Games” and “Entertainment.” (more…)
Update 11/24: According to a number of our readers, plus a number of newly updated reviews on FoxFi’s Google Play listing that confirm, FoxFi is back to working on Verizon. Enjoy that unlimited data, enjoy it, friends.
I hope this isn’t the end, but it may be. FoxFi has stopped working with Verizon unlimited data plans.
According to a number of our readers and dozens more who have commented on Google Play, FoxFi, the popular tethering app that doesn’t require root and was used by many unlimited Verizon data plan subscribers, stopped working yesterday and is still not working today. Some of our readers have tried FoxFi with multiple phones, asked friends to test, and done everything else they can think of to see what the issue is, yet have come up empty. (more…)
Motorola is gearing up Cyber Monday, like everyone else on the Interwebz, detailing the deals you can expect to see on its website. Right now, Motorola lists three deals that you can look forward to, but we do hope to see additional deals come Monday.
Kicking it off is 25% off a Moto X (2nd Gen) 64GB, bringing the price down from $399 to $299. This deal can be had from within Moto Maker, where you can choose how to customize the device to your liking. Naturally, if you choose for more expensive custom options, your price will go up. (more…)
Forget yesterday’s deal that we posted for SanDisk microSD cards. Today, their 200GB card has dropped to just $99 at Amazon. That’s a good $150 off.
If you happen to have a phone that supports 200GB of removable storage, now is the time grab the biggest card available at its lowest price ever.
Android Pay and Google.org are teaming up with DonorsChoose.org to support the 6.4 million children in the US education system with special needs. Starting today and running through December 31, every time you use Android Pay, Google is donating a dollar to special needs education projects, up to $1 million. Not only that, but on Black Friday, when you use Android Pay to purchase goods, Google will double their contribution to $2. (more…)
We wrote up Google’s spectacular Star Wars themes for apps yesterday, but today, another disturbance in the Force has been felt, originating from the folks down in Mountain View. An easter egg has been discovered in Google Search, one which turns your entire list of search results into a text crawl, just as we see in the opening of every Star Wars film. It’s not exactly practical in terms of getting all of your information, but it’s fun to watch. (more…)
After looking through Newegg’s massive big Black Friday sales event this morning, we picked out a couple of items that we thought may be of interest.
The first is a brand new Nexus 6 32GB for just $288.99. As far as I can tell, that’s the lowest price we have seen on this phone to date. Now, I know it’s a year old, but trust me when I say that this phone runs so beautifully smooth on Marshmallow. In fact, it’s almost a more buttery experience than what we are seeing on the two new Nexus phones, if you can believe that. (more…)
