Looking for some great applications and games to keep you busy during the summer? Then head over to the Play Store because Google is hosting a summer sale full of goodies. While the majority of the items are now free, others have been discounted. And some of the discounts reach 85% off of the regular price. If you see an app that is normally free, its in-app purchases have been discounted instead. There are 50 apps and games to choose from, so there should be something for anyone.

With the Moto X scheduled to become a relic later this year, Motorola has some devices to get rid of.
To clear out stock, the company is offering a discount on the device through its website. Just add a Moto X of any color/storage size/etc. to your shopping cart, and add the coupon code “MBXISMOT.”
With the end of Windows XP support by Microsoft, Google is trying to take advantage of this opportunity by focusing more on hardware, especially the Chromebook, and to make it popular among enterprises.
The company announced today that upon buying Chromebooks for Business, it will offer a $100 discount off each managed device purchased. In addition, Google has partnered with Citrix and VMware to offer two more promotions as well. A $200 discount will be provided on Chromebooks for Business for those who buy it with VMware Desktop as a Service. Citrix is also offering a 25% discount off its Citrix XenApp Platinum Edition, which includes AppDNA software to help speed up migration from Windows XP to the newest versions.

Last month, Verizon launched its new More Everything plan which replaced the carrier’s Share Everything service and gave customers more data , cloud storage and unlimited International messaging. The carrier just announced a further discount for customers on its More Everything plan along with the Edge upgrade program.

Verizon is already offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal on the new HTC One (M8) and on top of that, you can get up to a 30% discount on the price of the HTC One (M8) you’re paying for.
Of course, this can be combined with the BOGO deal which Verizon is offering, but you’ll have to sign a 2 year contract. To get the 30% discount, you’ll have to enter the discount code VERIZON30 at checkout. This means that with the BOGO deal, you can get two HTC One (M8) handsets for just $139.99 on contract.
Not too long ago we told you about a application for tablets called Chameleon Launcher that started as a Kickstarter project. It was a pretty cool success story, and the UI was, and still is, a refreshing take on how a tablet should work. The not-so-cool part? That $10 price tag.
Well, if you had been putting off buying the launcher because of that high price point, now’s your chance to give it a shot. The price has dropped significantly down to $3.99, which is about in line with several other premium launchers for Android. There’s no word on if this is a sale or the new, permanent price for the app, so you may want to check it out in the next day or two, just in case your tablet needs a little more customization. Anyone going to be trying out this app at its new price?

Looks like Verizon Wireless is sending out promotional mailers to some lucky individuals in Illinois. The flyer is good for $100 of ANY Verizon 4G smartphone and is valid until December 25th. Apparently nothing within the fine print excludes any of Big Red’s devices therefore all top tier phones are eligible. Yes, even the Galaxy Nexus supposedly. We are not sure what the criteria is to receive such a good promo, or if anyone outside of Illinois has gotten it, but if you end up finding one of these on your doorstep please let us know! Lucky duck.
Oh yeah. And please remember that stealing your neighbors mail is a federal offense. :-P

Here we go again! HP is getting ready to launch another TouchPad “fire sale”, only this time it will take place through their eBay store. This sale was originally meant for HP employees to get first “dibs” on the device but since the internal company email was leaked – Game on.
The discontinued TouchPad will again go on sale for $100 for the 16GB version and $150 for the 32GB model. Also to be offered during the sale is a $79 accessory bundle which includes a case, charging dock and wireless keyboard. You can find them in the laptop section of the site. All TouchPads will be refurbished but still come with a 90 day warranty. Don’t forget you can hack it to run Android too!
Now I assume you want me to tell you when the sale starts, right? You know that by me telling you when the sale starts reduces my chances of getting one for my mom for Christmas, don’t you? And I don’t like to disappoint my Momma. But… since I like you guys so much I am willing to take my chances and let you in on the little secret. The deal starts on December 11th at 6pm (CT) so you better be on time! I will be ready and waiting, 2 Red Bulls deep, ready to take out any fool in my way. Good luck and God speed, friends! :-)
