Today’s best deal is over at Amazon where you can pick-up an Anker Quick Charge 2.0 dual-port charger for just $13.99.

This new individual plan is currently being advertised on the front page of Verizon’s website, but the site won’t let you sign-up for it just yet online. Instead, if interested, you have to inquire over the phone or in-store. The plan will go live online on January 24. (more…)
I have had the SHIELD TV (2017) in my possession for one day now, and so far, I can’t quite tell the difference between this one and the SHIELD TV (2015) I have been using in my house for two years. They’re both Android TV, have access to NVIDIA’s gaming library, and have identical Tegra X1 processors and 3GB RAM.
