It’s not Black Friday, but it’ll have to do for now. Great technology deals are popping up all over the Internet today in celebration of Memorial Day, including a 50% sitewide sale at Zagg.com.

BGR was one of the first sites to call BlackBerry’s coming downfall, and we gave the world an unprecedented inside look at the company’s decline. At one point, we even became an outlet for executives at the company to anonymously plead with the company’s top brass in an effort to turn things around. Of course, those pleas fell on deaf ears and the company came crashing down around them.
BlackBerry is now a shell of its former self, and the company continues to struggle to find its place in the industry. Adding insult to injury, BlackBerry has to relive its toppling yet again thanks to the upcoming release of a new book that pulls back the curtain to give us a new inside look at BlackBerry’s epic decline.

If Popcorn Time is the “Netflix for pirates,” a service called cCloud TV is the “Popcorn Time for live TV.”
There is nothing legal about cCloud TV, a service that pirates live television stations and allows users to stream them to a wide range of devices for free. That won’t stop people from from using the young service for as long as it can keep its servers up though, and the team behind it announced on Sunday that users can now stream more than 50 channels of live TV content including HBO, ESPN, AMC, TBS, Showtime and more to the iPhone and iPad.
And best of all, perhaps, is the fact that users do not need to jailbreak their devices or even install any apps, because cCloud TV works right from your web browser. More →

If ever there was something in desperate need of a good “killing,” email is it. We have seen countless “email killers” introduced over the years and truth be told, some of them do a pretty good job of changing the way we use email, at least in part. This is in stark contrast to most other “killers,” which are typically all hype.
To date, our favorite disruptive email app is by far Mailbox, which is now owned by Dropbox. We’ve discussed it plenty of times in the past, and we even covered how we used the nifty app to destroy email. Now however, there’s a new “email killer” coming to town according to tech blogs, and the first screenshots of Microsoft’s upcoming new app were revealed in a recent leak. More →
On Wednesday, Spotify took the stage in NYC to unveil a host of additions that will soon be arriving on its service, including videos, podcasts and a surprisingly extensive list of content partners.

Each and every day, we alert our readers to a selection of apps from the App Store that are free to download for a limited amount of time, but the official promotions run by Apple are rarely interesting enough to deserve a post of their own. This week is different though, as Apple has put 25 great apps and games on sale for $0.99 a piece, and we figured we’d highlight a few of the best. More →

Where would the world be without emoji? Sure, people would be able to communicate a bit less awkwardly in person. And yes, perhaps at least one person under the age of 25 would probably know the difference between your and you’re. But those are small prices to pay for the ability to text someone with a series of cute little graphics instead of having to string sentences together.
The Light Phone pictured above is a phone I’d like to use on a daily basis. It’s got no touchscreen display, no texting apps, no games and no browser. It’s purpose is to solely help you reach the people in your life you want to connect with in the most basic way possible – by calling them. It’s also supposed to work with your existing smartphone, though. More →

Apple’s 2015 iPhone lineup has more available storage space than ever before, but many budget-conscious Apple fans still opt for 16GB when buying their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, but having only 16GB of onboard storage can quickly become an issue on smartphones that don’t have expandable memory.
If your iPhone is filling up faster than you expected, there may be one simple trick that will free up a surprising amount of space. More →
