HTC One M8 at Verizon Wireless Today + Buy One Get One FREE Deal! #VZWBuzz

Today, at exactly 1pm ET, the brand new HTC One M8 will be available for purchase at your local Verizon Wireless store.

New HTC One M8 Exclusively From Verizon Wireless Today

New HTC One M8 at Verizon Wireless

Why do I only mention Verizon? Because the HTC One will be exclusive to Verizon for 16 days (until April 9). In the tech world, that’s a LONG time to have sole selling rights!

In addition to having this new awesomeness in-store, Verizon is also offering a never-before-seen launch offer to buy one, get one free. A $199 BOGO deal (with 2-yr contract on each)? Yeah, baby! For those on the EDGE plan, picking up this new beauty will cost $20.83 per month, based on the retail price of $599 without contract.

So what makes the new HTC One such an attractive buy? The Duo Camera and BoomSound™sound! The camera is seriously high-tech with live- and post- editing features, 360VR, and bokeh effects like a 50mm! It also features an ‘all-metal unibody design’. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these.

Will you be adding the HTC One M8 to the top of your must-have-smartphones list?

It’s been so nice having The Counter in San Mateo. I’m extremely picky with food with extra this, no that, etc. so being able to custom-build my own Counter burger is awesome. Plus, there are a ton of premium and unique ingredients to add it never gets old. Even Frans has a huge selection available to him with so many gluten-free options (as well as paleo, vegan, low-carb/high-protein). Did I mention that there are now unlimited toppings?!

The Counter burger choices - custom built burgers and five new expert builds #TheNewGoods

New The Counter Burger Expert Builds

For those that have a hard time making decisions, The Counter also offers several Expert Builds and Salad Style Builds to choose from. In fact, five new Expert Builds have recently been added and those look pretty appetizing. If it wasn’t for my crazy ordering style the Un-Brie-lievable would be on the top of my ‘must try’ list!

Mr. Peabody and Sherman Movie

If you’re not familiar with this talking genius dog and his adopted son, they first made their appearance in cartoons in the 60s. I never had the chance to really watch it but I had heard of references to the series before :P Here’s the official plot of the new movie:

Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell, Emmy Award® Winner -Modern Family), the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman (Max Charles -The Amazing Spiderman), use their time machine—the WABAC—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history.  Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era:  figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.
