Android Pay and Google.org are teaming up with DonorsChoose.org to support the 6.4 million children in the US education system with special needs. Starting today and running through December 31, every time you use Android Pay, Google is donating a dollar to special needs education projects, up to $1 million. Not only that, but on Black Friday, when you use Android Pay to purchase goods, Google will double their contribution to $2. (more…)
We wrote up Google’s spectacular Star Wars themes for apps yesterday, but today, another disturbance in the Force has been felt, originating from the folks down in Mountain View. An easter egg has been discovered in Google Search, one which turns your entire list of search results into a text crawl, just as we see in the opening of every Star Wars film. It’s not exactly practical in terms of getting all of your information, but it’s fun to watch. (more…)
After looking through Newegg’s massive big Black Friday sales event this morning, we picked out a couple of items that we thought may be of interest.
The first is a brand new Nexus 6 32GB for just $288.99. As far as I can tell, that’s the lowest price we have seen on this phone to date. Now, I know it’s a year old, but trust me when I say that this phone runs so beautifully smooth on Marshmallow. In fact, it’s almost a more buttery experience than what we are seeing on the two new Nexus phones, if you can believe that. (more…)
To celebrate all of the things in life we have to be thankful for, we are teaming up with ASUS to giveaway 10 ZenFone 2 smartphone devices. If you need a new smartphone that comes carrier unlocked and features enough power to get you through any type of mobile computing task, then you are in the right place.
Recently through social media, ASUS has been gifting free phones to those in need, and now, we are working together to hook up 10 of our readers. The ZenFone 2 features a 5.5″ Full HD IPS display, 13MP rear-facing camera, 2.3GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor with 4GB of RAM, plus 64GB of built-in storage. In fact, we did our own unboxing and hands-on with the ZenFone 2 shortly after it was released for the US. (more…)
This afternoon, T-Mobile kicked off a new promotion called Un-carrier Unwrapped, which is their way of getting the Uncarrier movement into the holiday spirit. With Un-carrier unwrapped, T-Mobile is handing out holiday “gifts” for four straight weeks, the first of which is three “full months” of unlimited LTE. (more…)
Starting November 27 and lasting for four days (ends November 30), you can purchase the OnePlus 2 with no invite. I know, it’s an odd concept, buying a phone without an invite, but OnePlus wants to shake this industry up. The device will be purchasable directly through OnePlus’ website beginning November 27 in the morning. (more…)
Samsung is kind of going nuts with the Black Friday 2015 deals this year. We are seeing TVs slashed by as much as 60%, wearables and tablets by 40%, and other accessories by 50%. In even better news, these deals are running all week long and are already live. If you had Samsung-related shopping to do this holiday shopping week, you can do it before it gets wild on Friday.
