OnePlus One Contest

You now have 10,000 more chances to get the smartphone of Android fans’ dreams

You now have 10,000 more chances to get the smartphone of Android fans’ dreams

The OnePlus One might not have the best smartphone name you’ve ever seen, but just about everything else about it is tremendously appealing — especially if you’re a hardcore Android fan. The handset runs a heavily customized version of Android known as CyanogenMod, and it’s just begging to be hacked to your heart’s content. It also features a sleek design, surprisingly solid specs and an off-contract price that starts at just $299.

The problem, of course, is that it’s incredibly difficult to purchase a OnePlus One because the phone is in such high demand. Now, however, OnePlus is giving Android fans 10,000 more chances to buy a One. More →

More evidence that we won’t see the iWatch until 2015

A 2014 release date for Apple’s wearable device is looking less and less likely as new reports continuously reaffirm that manufacturing issues are holding back mass production of the iWatch. Speaking with China’s Economic Daily News, sources say that although suppliers are set to begin assembling the units in September, they will only be able to produce around 1 million per month. This wouldn’t be enough for a full retail release before the end of the year.

Galaxy S5 Price

You can now buy the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made for just $79

You can now buy the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made for just $79

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 might not be the most exciting smartphone the world has ever seen, but it’s still easily the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made. It has a gorgeous full HD display, a lightning-fast processor, a shockingly good camera and plenty more that make the Galaxy S5 one of the most capable handsets to date. Sales haven’t been terribly impressive and Samsung’s stock is down more than 12.5% over the past 3 months as a result, but that certainly doesn’t make the device any less appealing to smartphone buyers — and if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, now is the perfect time to consider the S5.

Why Is Amazon Prime So Successful

Unlimited two-day shipping has made it hard to wait for anything

Unlimited two-day shipping has made it hard to wait for anything

A few years ago, I was “that guy” — the one searching for fillers to boost my online shopping cart to $25 so that I could have the lot of it shipped to my place gratis. It wasn’t glamorous, but it worked. At the time, it felt like moving entirely unrelated products from Points A, B, and C to my home (let’s call that Point Z) in 5 to 7 business days was acceptable. In fact, it was remarkable. I clicked a few buttons, went about my day, and stuff just showed up a week later in a box I could either re-use or recycle. It was the future. More →

Yet another hugely popular gaming franchise spurns the Wii U

Nintendo has always thrived on the strength of its first-party games, from Super Mario Bros. to the The Legend of Zelda, but a modern game console can’t survive without support from third-party developers. Worryingly, Nintendo doesn’t seem to be getting any this generation. More →

CounterSpy review: Your mission, should you choose to accept it

By about 4 hours ago.

I’ve never been particularly good at stealth games. Either I don’t have the patience or I’m just not savvy enough to pick up on important cues from the bad guys, but my experiences have been repeatedly soured by my lack of skill. Fortunately, CounterSpy is a very different kind of stealth game, but all of the best aspects from the genre have been carried over. It’s a thoughtful, fast-paced game with impeccable style and enough collectables to keep you coming back for more even after you’ve saved the world once or twice. More →
