Verizon had the retail store lock down on the new HTC One M8 since the initial release, but now those of you with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint can get in on the brick-and-mortar sales fun as well. T-Mobile's availability kicks off tomorrow. The HTC One M8 is now available for purchase in carriers stores that aren't sporting a big red checkmark.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 launches tomorrow around the globe, but if you're on Telus in Canada and not into Samsung's dimples, might we suggest the now-available HTC One M8 instead?

Yesterday T-Mobile introduced a new Simple Starter plan that could get you in the cellular door at $40/month, and today they're shaking things up again by reducing the price of their cellular-enabled tablets to match that of their Wi-Fi-only siblings. Additionally, T-Mobile customers that activate a new tablet will get 1.2GB of free LTE data through the end of 2014.
There's a new update available for AT&T LG G2, and it fixes something that went wrong with the last update. If you'll recall, back in February the AT&T LG G2 got its first taste of Android 4.4.2. Unfortunately, it seems that that update to KitKat also introduced a few bugs that made things less convenient for Google+ and Google Wallet users.
Big news from Sonos and Google this morning, with the announcement that you can now stream Google Play Music on your Sonos system. Better yet, you don't even have to use the Sonos app to do it – though you absolutely can – since the functionality is being added right into the Google Play Music app for Android.

After initially launching last week, Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff is now available to download on Android. Giggity Giggity Goo! The game will be instantly familiar to anyone who ever played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, and to fans of the show. We're rebuilding Quahog, after 'somebody' blew it up. We also get treated to this exclusive mini-episode, which opens up the game (word of warning, there's a couple of curses in there!)
