The clock is ticking, time has almost run out on your Christmas shopping, but not just yet.

Since it’s decision time, and every second counts, you need clear eyes, full hearts and a clear mind to pick the absolute best gadgets for the wife, kids, parents and that uncle you only catch up with every Turkey Day and X-mas. Sticking...

Even though the Samsung Galaxy S4 is almost two years old, it is still getting updates. Since this is the Google Play Edition variant, it is the first of all the GS4 models to get Lollipop. This is just the 5.0 update, which the software itself point out with saying 5.0.0 instead of just 5.0. Since 5.0.1 was already released for other devices, it might be wise to wait until another future update. The update is close to 500 MB, so if you have this device and the update, make sure to do it over Wifi. Via: Android Police ...

In a very generous offer, Google is teaming up with Hulu to offer free access to their catalog of TV shows for the holiday season. From any Android phone or tablet, you can download the free Hulu app and then access all content for free as well, including the Plus content. Unfortunately for international users, this offer is only valid in the US. So if you live outside of the US, you’ll have to look elsewhere to watch your favorite TV shows. But if you are in the US, enjoy the free Hulu Plus. Source: @Android via Android Central ...

Either way, if you are interested in this smartphone,...

In a move that’s likely to counter the deals offered by their competitors, T-Mobile is once again launching new deals for families on data plans. They’re even discounting the truly unlimited data plans. First, T-Mobile is bringing back a familiar promotion. During the past summer of 2014, T-Mobile ran an offer for a family of four to get 10 GB of data for $100 per month. This deal is back, and it’s exactly the same. If you choose this plan, each person gets 2.5 GB of LTE data before their speed is slowed. When 2016...

With Lollipop being released for over a dozen devices now, many of them being Motorola, it’s only natural that another would follow. Now, Motorola is doing a soak test of what seems to be Lollipop for the Droid Turbo. Besides Lollipop being included in this soak test, it appears that VoLTE will be coming to the device as well. These are both great improvements, both hardware and software wise. It’s unknown when the final update will begin rolling out to all customers, but it will probably be very soon based on past Motorola...

Black Friday 2014 is almost upon us, and we were this close to send y’all out for your holiday Android shopping without consideration for carrier deals. Rookie mistake on our part, and we apologize for it, although in our defense, it was only in the last couple of days that the promotions started cascading from the likes of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. And let’s not forget Cricket Wireless, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, MetroPCS and Virgin Mobile. These smaller fighters in the service operator arena often try to compensate...
