1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Here's a welcome surprise from out of left field. HP is back in the Android tablet game with a potentially worthy competitor. They just announced the HP 8, and the name corresponds to the display size of the device. What's really surprising is the affordable price of the HP 8. At only $170, this is easily the least expensive 8-inch tablet on the market. Of course, with that price you don't expect that the specs will be anything spectacular to write home about and you would be right. Here's the scoop:
    • 7.85-Inch (1,024 x 768) display
    • Android 4.2.2
    • A quad-core ARM chip made by the Chinese company Allwinner
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 16GB of expandable storage
    • Stereo speakers
    • 3,800mAh battery
    These internals aren't too bad, and it could make for an inexpensive device for the kids. What do you guys think? Can HP compete in the Android tablet market?
