Admit it, going shopping during the holiday frenzy often makes you feel cheap. Small. Like a hamster running in a wheel. It’s almost as if you don’t want to buy anything, but...

Folks looking to snatch up a good deal on popular games will be pleased to know that Amazon is showcasing Monument Valley and the Amazing Spider-Man 2 for just $0.99, down from $3.99 and $6.99 respectively. The discount probably won’t last long, so it makes sense to jump on board the deal while you still can.

As expected, the case is quite bulky and relatively thick so you will have to sacrifice the slender exterior of the smartphone to get some extra juice, but that’s always a given with such accessories. ZeroLemon has been mindful about the G3’s unique rear facing buttons below the camera and has provided slots for it accordingly. The case is available...

Microsoft has just announced the Wireless Display Adapter, which sounds pretty plain at first, but is essentially a competitor to the Google Chromecast. This connects to devices using the Miracast technology, so it is imperative that your smartphone, tablet, notebook and television/projector has support for this particular feature.
