Google has a sweet deal for new Chromebook users, Pebble gets a very important update and HTC One M8 Android 5.0 update is delayed.
Thinking of getting yourself a new Chromebook this holiday season? Google has a very neat offer for you. The Search Giant is giving 1 TB of free Google Drive cloud storage for 2 years to anyone who buys a new Chromebook.
The deal is a steal when you consider this is about a $240 value. Many Chromebooks actually cost less than that. Simply buy your new Chromebook and redeem the offer before January 1st.
Opinion: If you are looking for the right Chromebook, be sure to take a look into our Best Chromebooks article. My personal favorite happens to be the Lenovo IdeaPad N20P Chromebook. Which one is yours?
Are you tired of Pebble only supporting certain services and notifications? Why can’t we just get notifications from all apps? Well, now you can. The Pebble team has re-written the Android and iOS apps from the ground up and the improvements are awesome.
For starters, the device can now displays notifications from all apps. In fact, you can even pick and choose which apps are allowed and aren’t allowed to send notifications to your smart watch. In addition, there have been performance improvements and the app now supports over 80 languages.
Opinion: I have been testing the new app in beta for some time and I must say it works like a charm. I don’t know why these improvements weren’t done before.
It was only last week that HTC told us the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition was set to get Android 5.0 Lollipop this week. And so Friday comes around and users haven’t seen the expected OTA update. What is going on?
HTC’s Mo Versi is back to shed light on the topic. As it turns out, Google has decided HTC needs to turn in new software. HTC will have to make the changes/additions and go through getting the software approved again. Sadly, this means there will be a delay.

Opinion: No other details were given, and we are not sure how long it will take HTC to figure this all out. Let’s try and be patient, guys.
