Motorola offering 10% off their accessories just because


Motorola is offering a 10% discount on most of the accessories sold through their online store using the checkout code JUSTBECAUSE10. You can apply this to anything that isn't already on clearance, and if you get $75-worth of gear, you get free shipping. That might be easy considering the Moto X is currently $125 off and Moto X cases are 50% off now too. The promo is running until the end of August, so you've got some time to take advantage.

How to keep your kids (or anyone else) from buying on your Google Play account

Google Play purchases

Passwords, passwords, passwords

Have we mentioned lately the importance of using a password? Whether it's on your device itself, or any of your accounts, you've got to keep things behind a password. And that goes for making purchases from Google Play as well.

Android Central University — SecurityA more recent bone of contention has been with keeping kids from racking up big bills on their parents' credit cards by haphazardly downloading anything and everything. That it's so easy to download apps and music and books is a good thing — but it also means it's easy to little ones to do so, ignorant of the cost — or the consequences.

But it's also pretty easy to protect your Google account so that there's a check in place before anyone else spends your money.

NVIDIA Shield Tablet review

NVIDIA Shield Tablet and Wireless Controller

If you're willing to go all-in with some extra accessory purchases, you can have one of the most flexible and capable Android tablets out there today

NVIDIA has won over many consumers' hearts and minds in the desktop computer space with its high-performance graphics cards, and is looking (once again) to parlay that success into the consumer electronic space with the Shield Tablet. Drawing on intense brand recognition within the gamer community, NVIDIA wants to sell a device that's a great overall tablet, but with gaming features unmatched by the competition.

It's fighting an uphill battle outside of the most hardcore of potential gaming buyers, though. General consumers definitely don't think of NVIDIA when it comes to making their next tablet purchase, and even those who know the name may already have brand allegiances with Apple, Samsung, LG or Google when it comes to tablets.
