DEAL: Moto 360 for as Little as $149 at Woot

Would you pull the trigger on your first Android Wear smartwatch if it was the Moto 360 and you only had to pay $150? That’s the scenario in front of you today, thanks to a deal from Woot. The Moto 360, which is probably still the best looking smartwatch to date (and just received Android 5.1), can be had for $150 with a leather band or $180 with a metal band.

At retail, the Moto 360 with a leather band normally runs $250; with a metal band, you are looking at $300. Not a bad deal.

The deal includes a 1-year warranty from Motorola.

Tip: Google Opinion Rewards is Still a Great Way to Earn Cash to Pay for Apps

Back in November of 2013, Google introduced an app called Google Opinion Rewards. We haven’t talked about the app much since, but because it has become a great source of funding for app purchases (like icon pack hotness), we figured it was time for a reminder that it exists. A lot has happened in two years, plus many of you are new around these parts and may not have known that Google was even doing a rewards/survey app that you could earn cash from.  (more…)

Decent Deal: $499 for a Brand New Unlocked LG G4

A deal running since yesterday over at eBay has the LG G4 priced at just $499. That’s a solid price on a phone that is arguably as good as Samsung’s Galaxy S6 in most categories and may beat it in some (battery life would be an example). Verizon wants $550 for it, while T-Mobile and AT&T each want $600 and $630, respectively.

The phone is brand new, unlocked, and ready for use on your favorite GSM networks. The bands listed show that it should work perfectly on AT&T (or Cricket), but should also work well on T-Mobile. The phone comes with 32GB of storage, plus that lovable microSD card slot for more (You could toss in the 200GB card from Amazon).

At this time, the grey model is sold out, but both white and gold are available. Free standard shipping is also included.

These are the Phones and Prices for T-Mobile’s JUMP! On Demand (Updated)

But some of you may be wondering which phones are a part of the program and how much they will cost. We have that info for you now to get you ready for June 28, the day this new upgrade program kicks off.  (more…)

SanDisk’s 200GB MicroSD Card Now Available

Back in March, days after Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 without an expandable storage slot, SanDisk unveiled its new 200GB microSD card. They told us at the time to expect the “world’s highest capacity” card at some point in Q2 of this year. Well, here we are in Q2 and the card is available at retailers like Amazon.

Of course, this much storage will cost you. The price was supposed to start around $399, but Amazon has the little guy for $240. I don’t know that I would call that a “deal,” though that’s much easier to swallow than the original price quote.

With a card like this, you could technically hold up to 20 hours of full HD video or transfer 1,200 photos in a minute with theoretic speeds of 90MB/s.

Any takers?
