Cricket Wireless Sets 22GB Data Cap on Unlimited Data, Will Begin Throttling Their Throttle on April 2

For years, Cricket Wireless plans have been some of the best bang-for-your-buck plans in the entire industry. Their $70 unlimited offering, for example, which costs $65 after a $5 autopay credit, has always been truly “unlimited” without a cap or the “network management” we see on other carrier plans.

Samsung Introduces New Gear VR at MWC With a Controller

Samsung may not have announced the Galaxy S8 at MWC today, but they did show off their new Android-powered tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3. We knew this bad boy was coming, so let’s run through the official details.

To start, Samsung isn’t saying how much this tablet will cost or when you can buy it. Weird, I know, but that’s the situation we are in. Should they make that info available, you’ll get a high-end tablet in a world that isn’t filled with many tablets anymore.  (more…)
