Anybody shopping for Android apps, accessories, smartphones, or tablets will want to take a skim through these sales we've scrounged up from around the web.

For apps, Google Play stuff is at the top, and Amazon App Store sales are at the bottom. Today Amazon's got a great deal on $115-worth of apps now available for free. Definitely check that out.
As always, if you find any sales out out there that aren't listed, let us know in the comments. Happy Halloween!

A quick reminder, folks, that it's Halloween tonight. The kids are going to be out and about, wearing all sort of stuff that they can't see out of or walk well in, and worrying more about how much candy they get than whether they're wandering into the street. And so it's more important than ever for those of us in cars to put down the phones and keep our eyes out the road.
Repeat: Please. Put. Down. Your. Phone.
I thank you. My kids thank you. And their friends thank you.

BlackBerry's instant messaging service BBM will be seeing an update across all OS platforms in the next few days.

You will also be able to retract any accidentally sent messages. We've all been there, so that may be a handy addition.

Since moving to lead the robotics "moonshot" at Google Rubin oversaw the acquisition of multiple robotics companies, including Boston Dynamics, to strengthen its efforts in the field.
Rubin is leaving Google to start his own company focused on technology hardware (and you can bet robots are somehow involved), though Google is still staying committed to robotics after he leaves. James Kuffner, who works in Google's robotics group, will take over Rubin's position at the top.

Microsoft is in the wearable game and supporting Android. Here's a first look
Last night – in a somewhat bungled outing, no less – Microsoft officially joined the wearable market with the Microsoft Band. More a fitness band with benefits than a smartwatch, the Band is perhaps best compared with the Samsung Gear Fit that launched earlier this year. The big news for us is, is Android support. Through the Microsoft Health app for Android – also for iOS, Mac and Windows – you can pair your Band with your favorite smartphone.
