VidAngel is becoming a legitimate Redbox alternative for me. Filtered movies, streamed, for the same price as Redbox. They had some bugs at first, but they've quickly been improving, and are now on several platforms, including Roku. Even if you don't want the filtering (you can turn it off), you should try it; it's cheaper than other streaming options, and cheaper than Redbox if you factor in the cost of gas and your time. http://vidangel.com/vip/tddmk9fr71/p

I took a chance and preordered the Saygus V2. I'm not sure how well they'll do, but with no restocking fee (for those who pre-registered), and with a ton of specs I care about (waterproof, dedicated camera button, special chip for improved battery life, improved screen readability in sunny conditions, front-facing speakers, 64GB built in + expansion options, Kevlar on the back rather than glass, OIS, etc.), it was worth a try. It will be 6-8 weeks before I know whether it's worth the money. #android  https://www.saygus.com/v2/

Cricket Wireless just got even cheaper. They raised their data limits on their plans, so I was able to downgrade to a plan that costs $10 less per month. We're now down to $70/mo total (inclusive of all taxes and fees) for 2 lines, each with 2.5 GB of data.

For power users considering switching, here's the biggest catch I know of: speed is reportedly limited to 8 Mbps on LTE devices and 4 Mbps on HSPA+ devices. I don't know whether those are current caps, but as of early last year, that's where they were. Since I'm on Wi-Fi 90% of the time, and since I've never owned an LTE device, those limits haven't been an issue for me.

Our experience has been so-so. It seems that I used to get slightly better reception with Straight Talk, although that doesn't make sense, since both services use the AT&T network. But overall, it's working well for us, and I'm sticking with it. It's hard to beat the price, unless you're comfortable with Sprint's network, in which case you can check out Republic Wireless.

Google takes a first step toward being able to monetize Google Now. This could get annoying, but thankfully the user retains some control for now.

This is looking like an Android geek's dream phone.

You may not be in the ideal job, but you can still be the ideal employee. Doing the latter is one of the best ways to take care of the former. 

I installed the Windows Phone 8.1 update for my wife's Lumia 925. I'll say this: Windows Phone deserves a much higher market share than it currently has.

Nice ideas for the Photoshop interface here.

And now I want a Kindle Voyage. So glad they added page turning back into the bezel. But I'll have to stick w/ my Paperwhite for now.
