DEAL: Nexus 6 Drops to $349 at Amazon ($150 Off)

What’s a good sign that Google (or any company for that matter) is about to unveil a new product? We see massive discounts on last year’s product in order to make room for the new guy. That could be happening at the moment with the Nexus 6, which just dropped $150 in price at Amazon to $349. Seriously, the Nexus 6, a whale of a phone that started at almost $700 a year ago, can be bought for $349.

Amazon has both white and blue in both 32GB and 64GB configurations available. The 32GB model is at the $349 price point, while the 64GB model has dropped as well, down to $399. That’s a hell of a price!

For those still scared of its size, I’ll just say this – the people who own the Nexus 6, love the damn thing. It’s one of those phones with a cult following, where those who took a chance on a 6-inch phone have found that they absolutely love the size. And hey, it’s stock Android after all.

RIP, Amazon Free App of the Day.

If you had made the Amazon Free App of the Day (FAOTD) a part of your daily routine, I’m sorry to break it to you, but that will have to change going forward. This morning, Amazon appears to have killed the daily promo in favor of something called “Underground.” 

Underground, as far as we can tell, is a new location in Amazon’s Appstore that lists out “actually free” games and apps for you to download. Amazon says there are over $10,000 in apps, games, and in-app items that are “actually free.” I don’t know what “actually free” is in reference too or taking a shot at, but that appears to be the slogan for this new initiative.  (more…)

Turn on Your TV With Amazon Echo Thanks to Samsung SmartThings Support

The Amazon Echo continues to gain features, with the latest being support for SmartThings from Samsung. If you plan on picking up a Samsung SmartThings Hub off of Amazon (currently available through pre-order for $99), users can tell Alexa to, “Turn on the TV.” Or if you have a SmartPower Outlet, you can ask her to, “Turn on the lamp,” or porch light.  (more…)
