Humble Bundle hits Android, name your price for games and support charities too

For many gamers the entire idea behind the Humble Bundle is not new. For those that have never heard of it or would like to participate on Android we have all the details. Essentially this is a "name your price" for games, and part of the funds go directly to charities, developers and more. Their first round for Android has four excellent games and you'll save a bundle buying them this way too.

Verizon drops HTC ThunderBolt to free on contract

The ever-advancing march of technology, or at the very least short phone product cycles, makes fools of us all. Those who scorn early adoption can now laugh derisively at those of us who shelled out three C-notes to buy the HTC ThunderBolt way back in March of 2011, because now you can pick up one of the biggest phones of last year (in more ways than one) for free on a new two-year contract. Verizon's website updated with the reduced pricing, though it includes an online discount and promotional discount, so you might not be able to find the same deal at retail locations.

Sony’s Tablet S gets a $100 price cut

Hey Sony, you know that the holidays are over now, right? Betanews reports that the company's primary Android Honeycomb tablet, the Tablet S, is seeing a permanent price reduction by a cool $100. That brings the 16GB version down to $399 (in line with the original Eee Pad Transformer) and the 32GB version down to $499, directly competing with the 16GB iPad 2. There's no word from Sony on the reasoning behind the price cut, but with low-cost Android tablets making a big splash this quarter, it's likely that sales of the Tablet S haven't been all that great.

Use Android, get cheap pizza: Papa John’s grants 25% off through new app

Pizza isn't a traditional holiday meal, but in this case I may be willing to make an exception.

Stretching the digital purse strings of impulse buyers to the breaking point, Google kicked off its new Google Music service with an awesome sale for the holiday season, wherein hundreds of thousands of albums and individual tracks were priced at half off.

Go buy music now, because it isn't any cheaper anywhere else, and it might not be so for long.
