T-Mobile is currently hosting a deal on the Nexus 6 that will slash $48 off the price. The deal is good for both 32GB and 64GB models, so at their $649 and $699 prices, you are looking at $601 and $651, respectively, after the discount. That’s not a bad price for a phone that Google and Motorola still can’t seem to keep in stock.
In our Nexus 6 review, we called it the best Nexus ever made. And even though the phone is a whale, consuming media on it is quite enjoyable. In fact, using it in general is a joy, assuming you have two hands free on the regular. (more…)
After months of anticipation, we now have the Venue 8 7840 from Dell in our possession. Teased back in late 2014, the tablet is purchasable by anyone on Dell’s website (or Best Buy), priced at $399 for 16GB. While the storage may seem a tad low, Dell spared no expense when it came to the design and feel of the device, giving it a 8.4″ OLED QHD display, featuring a resolution of 2560 x 1600.
Powering the 6mm thin slate is an Intel Atom Z3580 quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 2MP front-facing camera, three cameras on its backside for a combined resolution of 8MP, 802.11 ac WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD card support (up to 512GB of capacity), and runs Android 4.4.4 out of the box.

We are talking about private group messaging and video sharing, all within Twitter. These are the first of what may be many new Twitter features that we will see over the coming months. (more…)
The future of home lighting is in smart LED lightbulbs that are controlled via smartphone or tablet. Philips and other early entrants helped grow the industry, but newcomers like Revogi are trying to bring similar ideas to the tablet at affordable prices. Currently available in the DL Deals shop for another six days, we have the Revogi Bluetooth Smart Lightbulb available for just $34.99, which is 30% off the retail price.
The smart lightbulb works like many of the others in the industry in that you can control it via app on your smartphone (Android 4.3+ and iOS). The Revogi offers 16 million color options, brightness controls, smart-timers, pre-set “scenes,” and is an efficient LED bulb.

Sonos, the Hi-Fi speaker company whose systems turn your house into a multi-room multimedia mecca, and whose products have also led to recent copycat products from most of the biggest electronics manufacturers in the world (that would be Samsung, LG, and a bunch of speaker knock-off companies), released version 5.3 of its Sonos Controller app in public beta today. Now, normally we wouldn’t care enough about the beta release of most apps to generate an entire write-up, but this is a very important update that all Sonos users will surely appreciate. (more…)

They will also offer a $50 discount on accessories like the Moto 360. Next Monday, you will have the opportunity to register for a promo code that will give you the discount upon checkout. (more…)
Snapchat wants to be more than an outlet for sharing your naughty self or meaningless goofy daily encounters to the world. Today, they are introducing “Discover,” which should help it become much more than a penis vehicle, assuming you care about news decided upon by “world-class leaders in media” and their agendas, instead of what you are actually interested in.
