Deal: Apple Watch Series 1 gets a $100 (40% off) price cut at Walmart

Walmart, Best Buy, and Newegg are running various deals on the Apple Watch on Mother’s Day, but the promotion is likely to extend for a few more days or while supplies last.

We’ve managed to identify two Apple Watch Series 1 models that still appear in stock and have their prices cut by $100. First off, the Apple Watch Series 1 38mm Sport Band (aluminum case) is on sale for just $149, which means the smartwatch …

Apple sends document to authorized service providers telling them how to deal with Face ID issues

Apple has reportedly sent a document to authorized service providers outlining what they should do when an iPhone X owner has issues with Face ID. The first step that Apple recommends is a diagnostic test to see if there is a problem with the rear camera on the device. Wait! We know exactly what you’re thinking; doesn’t Face ID have to do with sensors found on the front-facing TrueDepth Camera? And you’d be exactly right. However, there does appear to be some connection between a rear camera failure on the tenth anniversary model, and the failure of Face ID to work correctly. Why the rear …

What do you make of Verizon's bloatware apps deal with Samsung?

Well, well, well, Verizon, what you are doing with Samsung behind closed doors? Remember Verizon’s acquisition of Yahoo? That one resulted in the Oath platform that folded the previous AOL acquisition for one big happy conglomerate of news, sports and various digital media undertakings.

Since people are consuming more and more of said media directly on their mobile devices, Verizon’s Oath department had to find a way to place its wares (and ads) front and center before the eyes of users. What do? Slap bloatware on the most popular Android phones du jour, …

Deal: Save $500 on the Pixel 2 XL at Best Buy (Verizon models only)

Best Buy has a crazy deal on Google’s Pixel 2 XL, one that offers a huge discount on the flagship, but requires signing up with Verizon and paying the device over a 2-year period.

Although the Pixel 2 XL still sells for $850 outright in the United States, Best Buy offers the smartphone for just $350. However, the massive $500 price drop comes in the form of $300 worth of bill credits from Verizon and $200 Best Buy instant discount.

So, no, you can pay $350 upfront for the Pixel 2 XL and live happily ever after. Instead, you’ll have to sign-up and pay the smartphone over a 24-month …

Deal: Save $50 on a Google Clips camera

Google Clips is an entirely new type of camera, or that’s how Google describes it, at least. It kind of looks like a GoPro, but it really isn’t an action camera. Clips is designed with parents and pet owners in mind, Google says, and it is built with a clip that doubles as a stand for easier positioning. But that’s far from exciting, we know. What’s much cooler is how the camera uses machine learning to automatically take photos or short videos at appropriate moments.

Google launched the Clips camera in February, starting at $249, but the price has now …

Report: T-Mobile-Sprint merger values Sprint at $6.10 a share; total deal worth $24 billion

Every so often, not as sporadic as the appearance of Hailey’s Comet, but not as often as a home run off the bat of Didi Gregorius, T-Mobile and Sprint engage in a mating ritual that has yet to result in an acquisition offer. Earlier this month, both sides returned to the negotiating table, and yesterday we passed along the word that things are proceeding at a rapid pace. T-Mobile and Sprint, reported Reuters, could reach an agreement as early as next week.

That news caught the attention of Wall Street traders, who love the smell of a fresh takeover in the morning. Shares of both T-Mobile …
