Deals aside, Google’s venerable streaming dongle continues to impress as more and more apps add casting capabilities. A couple of notable holdouts gained support a few weeks ago and the Slingbox app added it recently, too. Future additions are essentially a guarantee as Google continues to support developers who wish to add Chromecast support. (more…)
AT&T, essentially admitting that the insanely high prices that carriers have been charging you for tiered data over the last couples of years was highway robbery, is now offering double the data on its plans that range from 15GB to 50GB for the same price…for life. That’s right, if you pay for a 15GB plan, you can now get 30GB of data for the exact same price for as long as you want – there is no expiration. Same thing goes for 20GB, 30GB, 40GB, and 50GB plans; all have been doubled without a price adjustment. For $130 per month (plus the line access charges), you can have 30GB of data to gobble up per month on up to 10 lines. Or, you could up to 40GB ($150), 60GB ($225), 80GB ($300), and 100GB ($375) at the prices you have been paying. (more…)
Friday is here once again, which gives us the perfect time to gather the current app and game sales taking place on Google Play.
This week, a few well-known titles are up for discounted prices, including Osmos HD, Pirates and Traders: Gold, Chainsaw Warrior, and Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan.
It may not be the biggest list of sales, but it is still full of great applications. (more…)
With a growing number of games supporting Bluetooth controllers on Google Play, it may be time to invest in a piece of hardware that will take your mobile game playing to the next level. And with so many options on the market, it may be best to go with a shape you are already familiar with, which is why we recommend checking out the NES30 Bluetooth Controller.
As you can see, it is shaped exactly like an old NES controller, which should make you feel right at home again on the couch in your pajamas back in the 80s. Given the advancement in games, the controller does feature a few more control buttons than the original, but its shape and feel stays true. (more…)
Update: The Nexus 7 (2013) deal has returned, once again. With a new Nexus 9 tablet on the horizon, we may not see deals like this for much longer.
Still haven’t picked up the Nexus 7 (2013) after the countless deals that we have shared? Well, here is another one. Today’s deal includes the 32GB variant for $159.99, which is more than $100 off the original retail price. The device is “manufacture refurbished,” but you know what that means by now – the manufacturer has had a chance to work out defects or kinks.
Not much else to say with this one; you have seen this deal countless times.
Within the last year, I switched to wireless Bluetooth earbuds for workouts and can tell you that I will never go back to wired. There is a freedom you get when no wires are attached to your phone and you need to move, whether that be in a workout capacity or just traveling from one place to another. The problem with wireless Bluetooth earbuds is that most aren’t cheap. I currently use Jaybird Bluebuds X, which carry a price well over $100. They are great, but if you don’t feel like forking out that kind of cash for a set of buds that you may only use in certain situations, but still want to test the Bluetooth earbuds water, think about the current deal we have running in the DL Deals shop.
You can pick-up the Feather Buds for $24.99. They have a “noise canceling outer shell,” are tangle-free, and feature “crystal clear” sound at a range of up to 30 feet. They also have a built-in microphone, so you can take calls at any time.
Again, if you want to see if Bluetooth earbuds are for you, this isn’t a bad option to consider at that price.
Over at the DL Deals site, we currently have a Name-Your-Own-Price bundle of courses that should help the future developers in the building hone their skills. The pack isn’t directly Android-related, as it instead focuses most of its efforts on web development, but the languages between the two are often interchangeable. With a set of courses like this, any developer should be interested.
The bundle is a lot like the Humble Bundle we featured earlier in that you get to decide how much you think the included courses are worth. You have to spend more than $1, but not much more. By simply paying more than $1, you get a select set of courses geared toward web development. However, if you spend more than the average pay-what-you-want price (currently $14.97), you get every course, including some bonuses. Again, this works just like a Humble Bundle.
Charities are also involved, including Child’s Play, World Wildlife Fund, and Creative Commons. 10% of your purchase will go towards whichever charity you choose.
So what’s included in the bundle?
You’ll get lifetime access to 8 actionable online courses, 826 total lectures, and more than 80 hours of content “that will have you coding like a pro in no time.”
