Remember SanDisk’s sort-of-insane 200GB microSD card that became available a couple of weeks ago? We are about to save one of you $240, thanks to SanDisk, who has offered up a 200GB card as a giveaway prize to one of our readers. (more…)
We have partnered with Plex, the service that allows you to stream your video, music, and photo library across the web via a dedicated media server onto Android devices, to give away 3 Lifetime Plex Passes. These passes are valued at $149, granting you a lifetime membership to Plex and use of its servers.
Personally, as a big fan of Android TV and the Plex app on NVIDIA’s SHIELD, storing a few of my movies on Plex makes watching whatever I want easy. And since Plex is available on all of my Android devices, tablets included, it doesn’t matter where I am to enjoy my content. Also, if you follow Plex news, you should know that they have been rolling out new features left and right.
Want to win a Plex Pass? Let’s do it. (more…)
The Nexus 6 is still a great option for those who love unlocked, powerful devices. If you own a Nexus 6, you can even flash the latest Android M developer preview build, allowing you to experience the latest and greatest Android features before anyone else.
Let’s do this. (more…)
Just before Google I/O, we told you that IKEA had begun selling their series of wireless charging pads, lamps, and other accessories in the US. We also told you that we may or may not have a few to giveaway, which as you can tell from this post, is about to happen.
After a quick trip out to the Portland IKEA, we came back with three extra single-spot charging plates (Nordmarke), along with a bigger three-spot charging plate. All will work just fine with your wireless charging-capable device, like a Galaxy S6, Nexus 6, or Nexus 5. They should look quite snazzy in your home as well, since IKEA built these to blend in with furniture, not look like a piece of cheap technology, which I would argue is the approach most wireless charger makers take.

Automatic, a company that wants you to become one with your car through an adapter and smartphone app, is hosting a party at next week’s Google I/O and they asked if we could help spread the word by handing out tickets (10 of them!) to our readers, tickets that will also land you their car adapters. Awesome, right? Company doing innovative things with cars and phones wants you to party with them for free in San Francisco and receive free goods – how can you beat that?
The party is sort of like a pre-party for Google I/O in that it goes down the night before Google takes the stage. So on May 27, you can have a little fun before all of the serious stuff takes place and you need to think about code and animations and cloud thingies and compatibility and fragmentation (hah!). There will be “unlimited” drinks (read: open bar), entertainment (like Mario Kart battles), and a bunch of giveaways. Oh, we’ll be there too! (more…)
As Huawei continues its big push this year into the US, they want you to realize that they are about more than just smartphones. While their smartphones are certainly grabbing our attention (Huawei P8 for example), as are the rumors of them possibly creating a Nexus phone, their line-up of accessories shouldn’t be ignored either. And I’m not just talking about the Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch that stole headlines at MWC. Huawei also has a smart wearable/Bluetooth earpiece called the TalkBand B2 that is worth a look.
Before we get into why it’s worth a look, we should probably mention that we are giving five (5) of them away. Oh, it’s also not available yet for purchase, so should you win one, you will be one of the first in the world. Cool, right? (more…)
To help spread awareness for LG’s VR for G3 headsets, we have in our possession three, count ’em 1, 2, 3 LG G3 headsets to give away. Each is for T-Mobile’s network, so if you are already on T-Mobile or plan on switching to the Uncarrier, these will be a nice little prize for you.
With VR for G3, which is based off of Google Cardboard, G3 owners can experience a somewhat basic virtual reality, complete with games and apps, all of which are available directly from Google Play. The VR for G3 is available directly from LG when you purchase a new G3 and select retailers, plus LG couples a QR code on the box where you can grab a few exclusive VR titles for your enjoyment.
So, if you are interested in winning, let’s get to it. (more…)
