Have smartphones become too expensive? Buying a flagship smartphone is certainly expensive, but are we paying more for top-end smartphones than we were half a decade ago?

UE Wonderboom review: It’s waterproof, sounds great, and is kind of adorable

This adorable little guy is the UE Wonderboom, the newest speaker in UE’s product line. It’s half as tall, and almost twice as fat as its more expensive and elegant big brother, the UE Roll 2. At $50 less, it’s nearly as loud and sounds almost as good. The catch? It’s missing a few of the features of its older siblings. However, if the missing features are ones you don’t care about, it’s a better bargain.

Samsung’s EVO Select microSD cards are crazy fast and crazy cheap

Back when I used a Surface Pro 2 as my primary computer, I was quickly running out of space and needed more room. A 128GB microSD card set me back well over $100, and just a few short years later, the same capacity with faster read/write speeds is less than half the price.

If you have a phone, tablet, Nintendo Switch, or something else with a microSD card slot, Samsung’s new Evo Select cards are the way to go. They’re pretty cheap – just $13 for 32GB, $23 for 64GB, and $44.99 for 128GB.

Team17’s 2D arena game ‘Penarium’ is now available on the Play Store for $1.99

Team17, perhaps best known for its long-running Worms series, released ‘Penarium’ on Steam back in 2015. The game is centered around a sadistic arena-like circus show, where you take on the role as Willy as he tries to survive the death traps. Now the game has been released on the Play Store.

Much like the PC version, the Android port has very low requirements – it even works on Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. The price isn’t too bad either – just $1.99 for the entire game.
