I think I speak for all of us here when I say that it always feels great when you can pick any product for a lot less than what it normally costs. That’s why people rush to stores on Black Friday, and why many items always run out of stock when they’re discounted.
But what if you wanted that Black Friday experience all year long? Sure, you could install coupon apps, you could hunt around Amazon, Best Buy or eBay for deals, or you could simply install Slickdeals. It’s a community-driven deal site, with a nice Android app to help you stay on top of the best offers, even when you’re away from your computer.
One of the features of the Galaxy Nexus that I was most excited for was the inclusion of a Near Field Communication (NFC) chip. NFC allows devices in close proximity (very close: about 7 inches) to send information to each other. This can work for just about anything; v-cards, directions, websites, apps, and even money. I think with wide-spread adoption, NFC could be the next big thing; but I don’t want to get too ahead of myself. For today, I’m going to review Google’s flagship app for NFC, Google Wallet.
