Find out exactly how long it’ll take to binge-watch your favorite shows on Netflix

If you sit on your couch and do nothing but watch every episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad back to back with no break, you’ll run through the entire series in 2.6 days, or 45.5 hours without any commercials. The same mission would take just 41 hours with every Game of Thrones episode that has aired on HBO so far, and the entire Sopranos series would take you 3.6 days.

If you’re planning to binge-watch these or any other TV shows anytime soon, there’s only one site you’ll need in order to find out exactly what you’re in for. More →

Galaxy S6 Battery Replacement Cost

Samsung finally reveals how much it will cost to replace your Galaxy S6 battery

Samsung finally reveals how much it will cost to replace your Galaxy S6 battery

The brand new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are arguably the best Android smartphones the world has ever seen at this point, but nothing it perfect and that obviously holds true in this case. Specifically, vocal Android enthusiasts seem to have three main problems with the new flagship handsets: They don’t have user-replaceable batteries, they don’t have expandable storage and they aren’t water- or dust-resistant.

Carrying a portable battery charger or a battery case can help address the first issue, but what happens if and when your battery goes bad? Thankfully, Samsung has finally confirmed how much it will cost to have your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge battery replaced. More →

Apple Android Trade-in Program

Apple’s Android trade-in program is fantastic… as long as you hate money

Apple’s Android trade-in program is fantastic… as long as you hate money

Do you hate money? If the answer is yes then by all means, use Apple’s new in-house smartphone trade-in program when upgrading from an old Android handset to a new iPhone; as we reported late last month, Apple now accepts Android devices as trade-ins and it gives shoppers a credit toward the purchase of a new Apple product.

As is the case with the trade-in programs offered by wireless carriers here in the U.S. though, you’ll get far more money for your old Android phone if you sell it privately, or even if you use one of several popular phone buying services. More →

Best Free Android Apps

Download 26 paid Android apps for free from Amazon for a limited time

Download 26 paid Android apps for free from Amazon for a limited time

Amazon’s own Android phone may have been an absolute bust, but the company’s Android app store is an entirely different story. The Amazon Appstore is accessible on all Android smartphones and tablets, and it offers a solid alternative to Google’s Play store. In fact, we recently called it the one app every Android device owner needs to install immediately thanks to Amazon’s promotions that offer one new paid app for free every day.

But why give away one paid app each day when you can give away 26? More →

Galaxy S6 Edge

Free app brings Galaxy S6 edge’s awesome glowing edge feature to any Android phone

Free app brings Galaxy S6 edge’s awesome glowing edge feature to any Android phone

For my money, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 edge is the best Android phone on the planet right now. The Galaxy S6 is fantastic and the HTC One M9 is an outstanding option, but the S6 edge is everything a flagship Android phone should be in 2015… with a unique twist. The design is unlike anything we’ve seen before in a smartphone and while it’s not entirely functional, it doesn’t have to be.

Of course in terms of functionality, there are some cool features that are unique to the Galaxy S6 edge. Among them is a nifty notification feature that makes the curved edges of the Galaxy S6 edge’s display glow with a color to correspond with a favorite contact when that contact calls. Now, however, a great free app brings that feature to any Android phone. More →

Apple Watch Sales

Still not sure about the Apple Watch? This company will let you rent one

Still not sure about the Apple Watch? This company will let you rent one

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Apple Watch, and coincidentally one of the things that might separate the Apple Watch from traditional watches, surrounds value retention. How much money will the $350 Sport model be worth a year from now? The stainless steel model? And what about that $17,000 Apple Watch Edition — will it hold its value down the road or depreciate rapidly?

There are plenty of good reasons to skip the Apple Watch at launch (and some awful reasons to skip it), but this is certainly one of the biggest. Beginning soon, however, you’ll be able to obtain an Apple Watch without actually having to purchase one. More →

5 great free Android apps that do amazing things the iPhone can’t

It’s been a long time, Android fans, but one of your favorite series of recurring posts is finally back. Last year, we periodically put together lists packed with examples of great Android apps that feature functionality the iPhone simply can’t match. The iPhone is a terrific smartphone, but there are plenty of limitations in Apple’s iOS ecosystem that simply don’t exist for Android app developers, and here we can celebrate some of the apps that shine particularly bright.

Now, this series is back by popular demand and we’re kicking things off with five particularly nifty Android apps. And did we mention that all five apps on today’s list are free? More →

Another day, another list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. As is the case with each and every one of our lists, however, you won’t want to miss this one.

500? 1,000? You’ll never guess how many different Android devices are available

500? 1,000? You’ll never guess how many different Android devices are available

As we reported early Wednesday morning, the European Union has officially filed charges against Google alleging that the company has employed anti-competitive tactics in the region. Following an investigation that lasted for four years, the European Commission has filed antitrust charges and sent Google a statement of objections, which explains exactly how Google is allegedly breaking the law.

Google now has 10 days to respond, but it looks like it already has most of the high-level points for its response ready — and in an internal memo that outlines the company’s objections to the charges, there are a few interesting tidbits to be enjoyed. More →

Video: Watch someone try to kill the Galaxy S6 with fire

Is “Will it burn?” the new “Will it blend?” One YouTuber is hoping that’s the case as he offers up a new kind of torture test to add to the growing list of Galaxy S6 abuse tests we’ve seen so far. Most tests involve dropping Samsung’s new flagship phone onto concrete to see how the new glass housing stands up to pavement — surprisingly well, judging by this test — but a new video seeks out unique ways to torture Samsung’s latest and greatest.

Ransomware Removal Software

There’s finally a tool to free you from the ransomware holding your PC hostage

There’s finally a tool to free you from the ransomware holding your PC hostage

Of all the malicious software out there that we have to be afraid of, ransomware may very well be the most sinister. As its name might suggest, ransomware is malicious software that hackers use to hold your computer hostage, blocking access to all of your files unless you agree to pay a ransom. Only when the ransom is paid are your files finally freed, and failure to pay will likely result in the permanent loss of all data on your PC.

Now, however, there’s a new free tool to combat some of the most popular ransomware being used right now by hackers. More →
