Some deals are nice, some are great, and some like this one can be a little too good. Remember that promotion Google Express had with Walmart, where if you buy a Google Home or Home Mini through the retailer you can get $25 off your next purchase on Walmart via Google Express? Well, that promo is still live and works with the already discounted $29 Home Mini and $79 Home.
You'll have to pay the full $29/$79 first, sure, but the deal is fantastic on the Home Mini. You're essentially getting it for $4. Even with Artem's misadventure causing Google to gimp some of the Mini's functionality, this can be a nice desk smart speaker, a great kitchen timer, easily the most convenient tool to find your phone around the house, and an additional voice controller for your smart home.

If you're looking for a first-person view when controlling your drone, DJI's goggles already had you covered. The company has now updated its original viewer with a new version designed specifically with racing in mind. The sleek metallic black and red leather goggles are exactly what you'd expect from a product carrying a 'Racing Edition' moniker. Read More
If you're watching a YouTube video on your Android phone and pause it then move to another app, you may start seeing a new notification. It will offer you the option to resume playback, not on your phone but on your TV. Obviously you need to have a Chromecast-connected TV or an Android TV on the same network for this to work.
The notification popped up for me yesterday while I was in bed catching up on the Champions League goals, but I dismissed it since I was away from the NVIDIA SHIELD in my living room. Fortunately our tipster got it, took some screenshots, and tried it. Read More
You know what users like even less than a company that takes features away from them? It's a company that doesn't seem to make up its own mind about what it wants and doesn't want to offer them.
The story of Canary goes like this: the company made a nice connected security camera that I actually loved. In September of 2016, Canary changed its plans to introduce Membership, but caused an uproar because it forced all paid users into a $9.99 plan and took away the cheaper but good-enough-for-most-users $4.99 option (initial plans screenshot), and it also changed the free plan from 12hrs/camera to 24hrs total, divided on all the cams you had: 24hrs for 1 = double, 12hrs for 2 = same as before, 8hrs for 3 = bad, and it only gets worse from there.

Moto Mods are kind of a weird thing for me — they're a really neat idea, but I don't think they've been executed well. I am sure that some of you will disagree with me, but that's not the point here. In a deal that made me do a double-take, AT&T has the Incipio Offgrid Power Pack for a measly, paltry $10, a whopping $70 off the MSRP. Read More
When Android Auto was first introduced, your only option for using it was to buy a brand new car. But soon enough, third-party head units (like the lovely Sony one pictured above) started showing up. Now that you can run the full Android Auto interface on your phone, you don't strictly need a compatible head unit, but they're getting cheaper anyways.
Now you can get the Sony XAV-AX100 and XAV-AX200 head units for $50 off the usual prices. Read More
It's easy to sing the doom song of tablets, so I'll do my best to refrain. If you're interested in one on the cheaper end, and Amazon's offerings don't light your fire, then the 32GB Huawei MediaPad M3 is on sale for $224, a respectable $75 off. Read More
In a odd turn of events, Google has decided to reduce the return window for defective movies, books, and TV shows bought in the Play Store to 65 days. Originally 120 (or unlimited for books), this change is interesting to note with the impending holidays (and hopefully an influx of Google Play gift cards). Read More
After the last deal alert, this one might feel a bit anticlimactic — after all, I did say that Samsung's smartwatches are the ones to buy if you're interested in that product segment. But if your heart is set on Android Wear, and bless your soul, then this sale on Asus' ZenWatch 3 might interest you. The best Android Wear watch is currently $179.99, a nice $50 off. Read More
