Memorial Day weekend is nearly upon us, which means a large number of U.S. retailers will try their best to get you to spend time in their stores rather than enjoying a good barbecue, spending the day at the beach, or sitting in your air-conditioned bedroom playing Skyrim until you can no longer feel your eyeballs. Best Buy is one of those retailers who would like you to keep their employees company during the holiday and will be knocking $50 off the iPhone starting this Sunday.
When Best Buy says “iPhone,” this promotion is good for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 when purchased on a two-year contract on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. If you can’t make it to your local Best Buy this weekend due to your Memorial Day already being filled with fun and hijinks, there’s no rush as they’ll be running the promotion for four weeks.
The promotion comes at a time where rumors regarding the iPhone 5S have been intensifying, which could very well be the reason why Best Buy would like to get rid of some of its stock of iPhones in order to plan the rumored fall launch of the next iPhone.

We’re sure by now you have decided which cloud-storage service you want to trust all of your files, photos and other miscellaneous documents with, but Verizon is throwing their cloud into the ring as they have just launched its cleverly named Verizon Cloud for iOS and some Android devices.
Verizon Cloud is available only to Verizon subscribers on supported handsets, including all iOS products and most Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC DROID DNA. Verizon customers can have access to 500MB of free cloud storage, but will allow additional storage on a tiered price scale. An additional $2.99 a month will get you 25GB of storage, $5.99 per month gets you 75GB of storage, while spending $9.99 per month will get you 125GB of storage.
Verizon Cloud won’t only store your everyday files, such as photos, music and documents, but the service will also store text messages, call logs and contacts in an attempt to make transitioning between devices a little bit easier by seamlessly transferring information.
