Free Icon Pack You Should Download: Ainokea

If you are into the icon world at all (we most definitely are), then you should know the name Alex Miller and his work as “arandompackage.” Over the years, he has made some of the best icon packs of all time, a list that includes Influx, Jive, and Éternel. His latest, Ainokea, will probably be added to the conversation before all is said and done, thanks to its “relaxing” theme, softness to the icons, understated colors, and added bonuses, like custom-made Zooper Pro skins.

Oh, it’s also free. Yep, Alex made Ainokea free last week, so you may as well go download it and take it for a spin.  (more…)

Deal: HTC RE Camera Slashed to $99 at Best Buy ($100 Off)

HTC’s RE camera, a GoPro-like action cam that is the first of many of HTC’s new product lines, is on-sale at Best Buy in a daily deal for just $99. The RE normally carries a $199 price, so we are talking about a 50% discount for today only.

As a recap, the RE is HTC’s action camera that shoots 1080p video, uses a 146-degree wide-angle lens, 16MP Sony sensor for stills with digital image stabilization, and is waterproof. It might be shaped like a periscope, but the design allows you to hold it comfortably while snapping photos at will. It doesn’t have many buttons or a viewfinder, so you have to use an Android companion app to see the photos and videos you are capturing. That’s OK, though, because it allows for quick sharing.

I don’t think anyone would consider the RE to be an award-winning product, but I can tell you that in my time with it, it has become a great party, child-chasing, and travel camera for all of those spur of the moment shots. It’s probably worth about $100.

The deal includes white, blue, and orange models.

If you were interested in picking up Google’s new Nexus through Big Red, but were waiting to be able to get one in hands, now is the time.

Best Buy is currently selling the Verizon variant of the Nexus 6 for just $99 with a 2-year contract. Verizon, on the other hand, wants $250 for it.  (more…)

Awesome Deal: Verizon Moto X (2nd Gen) in Bamboo for Just $259

Whoa, talk about a semi-insane steal. An ebay daily deal just popped up for the Verizon Moto X (2nd gen) 16GB in bamboo at just $259. That would be the without-a-contract price. Oh, it ships for free too.

The device is “manufacturer refurbished,” so it’s not brand new. However, many would argue that when you give a manufacturer a chance to refurbish their own product, that they often times then have a chance to work out any kinks that you may find in a brand new one. Either way, $259 for the phone that took the crown for 2014 Android phone of the year? That’s almost impulse buy territory, right there.

You should read our Moto X (2nd gen) review if you haven’t already.
