Google’s Chromecast is available from Groupon for the next couple of days at the low price of just $20. This is a “manufacturer” refurbished dongle, but do you really care? $20 for a device that attaches to the back of your TV for streaming of almost all the things is a heck of a deal.
We are expecting Google to bring us a new one this quarter, but still, this is a good deal if you don’t already own a Chromecast or need an extra for another TV.

After reporting another somewhat disappointing quarter, Samsung said that we could see price cuts to its flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Either the T-Mobile version is the first in line to receive those cuts or T-Mobile just feels like giving you and I solid discounts on a phone that is the best you can buy.
Last night, T-Mobile slashed $100 off the 32GB and 64GB models of both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but took it a step further when they dropped $200 off the 128GB models. So you can buy a regular Galaxy S6 with 32GB of storage for as little as $579 or go bonkers on storage and grab 128GB for $659. The S6 Edge now starts at $679 for 32GB models and goes up to $759 for the 128GB model. Skip the 64GB, folks, the better deal is with 128GB.
We’ll monitor the other carriers and let you know if they follow suit. (more…)

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is today’s deal of the day through Best Buy with a $15 discount that drops the price to $25. If you wanted to get into the dongle-to-streaming game and have yet to buy a Chromecast, this deal gets you there even if it is through Amazon’s option.
With the Fire TV Stick, you plug the HDMI-ready dongle into a port on your TV or display, connect to WiFi, then stream music, movies, and all sorts of other content through partners like Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, Pandora, and ESPN. You can even game on the Fire TV Stick.
Amazon says the Fire TV Stick comes with 4x the storage and 2x the memory of Chromecast, so if you are a Chromecast owner, this might even be a nice little upgrade.

The OnePlus 2 may not arrive until August 11, but one of their lead OxygenOS designers just handed out the phone’s wallpapers ahead of time to “keep the hype up.” There are supposed to be 27 wallpapers in the bunch, but we’re only counting 25. Still, here are 25 free wallpapers that will probably look good on any device, not just the new OnePlus 2.
Below, we’ve put together a mini preview of the lot, but if you head through the download link, you can grab a .zip of all of the papers in full resolution.
You may not be interested in the OnePlus 2, but who can say “no” to hot wallpapers on a Saturday afternoon? (more…)
