It’s back! Our yearly DL NFL Eliminator Challenge is now open and ready for entries. This is our 4th year hosting this challenge, which is a way to share our love of sports with the DL community, but also reward one of you with a phone of choice. So yes, we are once again giving away a phone valued at up to $650 to the winner.
For those new to NFL eliminator challenges, they work like this. You pick one winner each week out of all of the games being played. If your team wins, you move on to the next week. Just keep in mind that you can only choose a team one time per season, so there is some strategy involved. With that said, by no means are these challenges as intense as fantasy football or weekly pick’em challenges. This is the simplest form of an NFL challenge you can participate in.
The season kicks off next Thursday, so you will want to sign-up now. We will try our best to remind you throughout the next week to sign-up, though.
There is no cost to you, yet you can win a phone of choice. Ready to sign-up? (more…)
Fans of American “football” can head on into Google Play to pick up the newest grid iron-loving app, NFL Now. Think of NFL Now as MLB’s At Bat app, which offers customized content for each person that uses it. When first downloaded, you select your favorite team, then let the app build a stream personalized for you.
As the season starts picking up, hundreds of new videos are added daily to the service, making the service a must-have for fans. Not only are there new videos added, but NFL Now boasts the “deepest NFL library anywhere.” Sounds intense. (more…)
According to a tweet published by @evleaks, AT&T retail locations will be one of the first places the public will be able to purchase Google Glass. The question, since Glass was first revealed, has been when can we get it, and for how much?
The Google Glass Explorer program is currently open to anyone willing to pay the $1500 entry fee, but the general public would do much better in waiting for Google to announce the finalized version of the hardware and software. (more…)
The National Football League (NFL) announced this morning the NFL Now application for iOS, Android, and Windows devices.

If you have yet to sign-up for this year’s NFL Eliminator, we encourage you to do so before Thursday evening when the Broncos and Ravens kick off the 2013 NFL season. Our prize once again this year, is a phone of choice to the winner at a $650 value. You could pick up the new Moto X, potentially a Galaxy Note 3, or maybe even whatever the next Nexus device is.
It’s free to join as usual, lasts 17 weeks, and again, could win you a phone of choice.
All of the details can be found here.
In less than a week, the 2013 NFL season officially kicks off with a showdown between the Broncos and Ravens. If you have been a part of the Droid Life community over the last couple of years, you also know that the start of the season means that our annual eliminator challenge is in store. And like in years past, we’re rewarding the end-of-year winner with a phone of choice, valued at up to $650. Since many of us lost out early last year with a week 2 upset, I think I can speak for the crowd when I say that I can’t wait for this year’s challenge to start.
If you aren’t familiar with NFL eliminators, we have some basic rules for you below, along with a link to more in-depth instructions. The basics are: join for free, pick a winner each week, go the entire season without getting a pick wrong, and you win. It sounds simple, but boy is it tough, especially since you can only use each team once.
According to sources in Silicon Valley, a meeting is taking place which could lead to big news for both Google and NFL fans. DirecTV’s current deal for rights to NFL’s Sunday Ticket subscription package, which costs $1 billion annually for DirecTV, is coming to an end at the end of the 2014 football season. With that said, a group of NFL executives, including commissioner Roger Goodell are holding meetings with several companies to see if a bidding war could take place for the service. (more…)
Since Google Glass hit the streets, many have spoken of the device’s potential game-changing (pun intended) features that could find their way into sports arena across the world. If you could strap Google Glass to the face of today’s top athletes, we could see exactly what they see as they hit a monster home run or make the perfect pass for a game-winning touchdown. The possibilities are practically endless. ESPN was able to get Glass onto the heads of two St. Louis Ram’s players and the team’s general manager, showing them what the future could be like with the help of the device. (more…)
