Giveaway: Win 1 of 3 Carved Wood Cases for the Galaxy Note 7

Late last week, we checked out the latest offerings from Carved for the Galaxy Note 7. Considering I don’t typically rock a case for my phone, it’s about time we get these things off of my desk and onto your device.

For this giveaway, we have three cases for you to choose from. We have the Grand Teton Inlay, Pack Print (the wolves), and Random Puzzle. Each features real wood backing with black rubber wrapping. As far as cases go, these options fit very well on the Galaxy Note 7. Typically, the cases cost about $40, but this week, you can win one for absolutely free.

Let’s do this.  (more…)

DEAL: 200GB SD Card for $60 ($18 Off), Asus OnHub Router for $130 ($70 Off)

Amazon has a couple of share-worthy deals for us to feast upon this afternoon. One is for a SanDisk 200GB microSD card at just $59.99. This card was at one time a couple of hundred dollars, but has since settled into a zone right around $80. At $59.99, you are saving almost $20 and getting all of the storage your current phone can handle.

If you don’t need storage for a phone, but would like a smarter WiFi setup at home, you may want to take a look at the Asus OnHub router that Amazon has priced at $129.99. That’s a solid $70 discount over the full retail price. Not familiar with OnHub? This is the brand of routers that Google is pushing, that are controlled through an Android app, and that are starting to do smart things, like work with IFTTT to automate your house. I tested one for months and loved the damn thing.

Both deals are ending soon.

Motorola Brings Moto G4 Play to US, Amazon Gets “Prime Exclusive” for Just $99

Back in July, Motorola brought the new Moto G family to the US as the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus (unboxing). Today, they are adding to the family by also introducing the Moto G4 Play, a phone that manages to be even less expensive, yet avoids dropping all of the way down to the Moto E family.

Starting at just $149.99, you are looking at a phone with a Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage with microSD support, 5-inch HD (720p) display, 2800mAh battery, 8MP rear camera (f/2.2), 5MP front camera (f/2.2), water repellent coating, and Android 6.0.1. As you can tell from that last, this isn’t even really a mid-range device and really there for those on a strict budget. It comes in either black or white.  (more…)

DEAL: Chromecast and Chromecast Audio are Still $5 Off

Still haven’t picked up a Chromecast or Chromecast Audio? Now would be a good time since Google is once again hosting a $5 off sale at a number of retailers. Remember, the Chromecast is already reasonably priced at $35, so anytime you get a discount, it’s worth jumping at.

Live under a rock and have no idea what a Chromecast is? The basics are this: The dongles attach to your TVs or speakers and then let you “cast” content to them, whether that be movies, TV shows, music, or photos. It’s one of the great technological advancements in recent years, especially when you factor in the reasonable price.

DEAL: Moto 360 Sport in White for Only $140

Over on Amazon, folks can find the Moto 360 Sport smartwatch in White, listed at a price of only $139.99. Originally launched with a price of $299, this dip seems like a solid discount for anyone looking to get into Android Wear.

The Sport model of the Moto 360 is suited towards those who are quite active, featuring a single silicone band that wraps around the watch. This band allows you to sweat all over it, perfect for you heavy perspirers. The watch comes with GPS tracking, an AnyLight display, and should see the upcoming Android Wear 2.0 update.  (more…)

DEAL: Jaybird X2 Heavily Discounted at Best Buy to $69.99 ($80 Off)

Jaybird X2, the Bluetooth sport earbuds that we have written up and shared thoughts on more times than I can count, are heavily discounted right now at Best Buy. The electronics retailer is hosting some sort of mega-sale on lots of tech products, but this deal here stood out for the size of reduction. Normally $149.99, you can grab any of the six different colors of Jaybird X2 headphones for $69.99, an $80 discount.

I don’t think I need to explain again why these earbuds are well worth that $70 price tag, but the basics are that you get great sound for a Bluetooth earbud, long battery life, all sorts of flexibility in fit, and a sweatproof design. They don’t look too shabby either, especially in some of the fun colors.

We don’t know how long this deal is lasting, so you may want to jump on it.
