A weird quirk with Bixby prevents installing a baseball card app on the Galaxy S8

Samsung’s Bixby virtual assistant wasn’t exactly met with open arms, and throughout reviews we’ve noted some general weirdness with the app. Every time I use a Galaxy S8 device I always accidentally hit the Bixby button, too, so it’s pretty obvious it needed more time in the oven before officially being released. But going beyond […]

Google may soon be saying goodbye to the physical Google Wallet card

Google Wallet isn’t going away, but the physical card you could request might. Text from an upcoming app update shows that the card may lose support by June 30. You would still be able to activate cards and add money until May 1.

Your physical Google Wallet card is going to stop working soon

Google WalletOne of the unique features of Google Wallet was its ability to attach to a physical card in addition to the digital wallet. You had an account within Google Wallet that you could put money in, then use that physical card if somewhere didn’t accept NFC payments.

Hopefully you weren’t too invested in that physical card, as it looks like Google is going to phase it out sooner rather than later.

Some information inside of the APK for Wallet suggests that on June 30th, the Wallet card will no longer be supported. It makes sense from Google’s point of view, since the card was nothing more than a glorified prepaid account. It obviously didn’t make waves outside of early adopters, and now that Google’s focus is on Android Pay and contactless payments, it was hard to see that card lasting much longer.

Google Wallet as a service isn’t going away, so there’s no need to be worried about that. You can still send and receive money through the app, and you’ll be able to withdraw any money that’s currently stored in it. After the cutoff date, you just won’t be able to add any more money for storing or activate new cards.

Maybe they’ll be worth some money on eBay a few years down the line.

[Deal] Best Buy is knocking $50 off the Nexus 6P in Matte Gold, throwing in an extra $25 gift card

nexus_6p_gold_front_back_lineupLooking to save some cash on a Nexus 6P? Best Buy is offering a solid $ 50 discount on the Matte Gold variant of the device, bringing the 32 GB down to $ 449 and the 64 GB down to $ 499. That’s about as good of a deal that we ever see on the 6P, especially in its newest color.

In case that cash discount wasn’t quite enough for you, though, Best Buy is also tossing in a $ 25 gift card that you can use on anything else the electronics retailer sells. While that gift card doesn’t put any cash back in your pocket, it does make this the best deal we’ve seen on the 6P yet, all things considered.

Hit the link below to place an order.

Here’s how you can stream the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs

nfl_football_tunein

The NFL Playoffs are starting with games this Saturday and Sunday, two days in which you might not be able to sit in front of a television and watch. Wherever you are (assuming that’s in the United States), you’ll be able to stream the weekend’s slate of action between eight of the league’s top teams.

We’re telling you how to stream all four games of the Wild Card round.

  • Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texas (4:35PM ET on Saturday, January 9)
  • Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals (8:15PM ET on Saturday, January 9)
  • Seattle Seahawks @ Minnesota Vikings (1:05PM ET on Sunday, January 10)
  • Green Bay Packers @ Washington Redskins (4:40PM ET on Sunday, January 10)

Although the options are vast, all of these (except CBS’) require television provider credentials. So you’ll need an active account with a television provider to successfully log in and stream games. TuneIn is probably you’re best bet if you can’t be in front of a television and lack an account with a television provider. The audio streaming service signed a deal back in October to give TuneIn Premium subscribers radio feeds to each and every NFL game. Just fork over $ 7.99 per month to enter and TuneIn will also give you MLB and Barclays Premier League games in addition to free NHL games.

People outside of the United States can purchase NFL Game Pass to stream the games internationally.

Have any picks to win this weekend? Tell us in the comments section below. We’ll see if you’re a real NFL Nostradamus.

Best Buy offering $100 gift card with LG G4, lists release dates

lg_g4_best_buy

Best Buy has launched their pre-order page for the LG G4 and in an effort to entice buyers to stop by one of their stores instead of going directly to the carriers, they are offering a $ 100 gift card with the purchase of the G4. That could be useful for users who want to add a case or car charger or some other accessory to their order. The pre-order page also lists release dates for several carriers and colors of the smartphone.

As previously suspected, Verizon versions of the LG G4 will be available starting June 4th. Best Buy is listing Metallic Gray, Ceramic White and Deep Blue versions for Verizon for $ 199.99 with a two-year contract.

The next day the Sprint version of the G4 will be available in gray or blue or with the new leather back in black. AT&T will have the same options available through Best Buy, but their version will not be released until June 12th. Potential buyers may also note that the AT&T version can only be bought using the AT&T Next program or for full retail.
