Earlier this month LG let the G3 Stylus slip out in an ad, though at the time we weren't exactly sure what the device was. Now we know, because LG made it official. Spoiler: it's not as cool as you hoped. I promise.

So the G3 Stylus looks like a G3 with a stylus, and it packs some of the features that makes the G3 cool, but it's not a G3 with a stylus.

Home automation of any kind is a pretty tough market in which many products generally create more problems than they can solve. However, there are a rare few gadgets that don't aim too high or too low, and the results can be profoundly useful to the right customers. A new campaign on Kickstarter might just be primed to hit that sweet spot with a product called AnyMote, a remote-controlled universal remote.

Man, eBay just loves those Nexus deals. The latest is for a new 16GB Nexus 5, not refurbished or restocked, for $324.99 ($25 off the Play Store price). With the free shipping available from this seller and no sales tax charged for buyers outside the state of New Jersey, it's approximately $80 cheaper, plus or minus a few dollars depending on location. Note that this is the standard D820 model. If you haven't picked up a Nexus 5 yet, this is the best price we've seen in a while.

The immensely difficult dungeon crawler Wayward Souls is currently up on Amazon for $1.99, one third of its usual price. That makes now a good time to pick up the game and walk away with a few dollars saved and a compelling title to boot. Not only that, buyers also get 60 Amazon Coins back, which amounts to 60 cents. For the math averse, that brings this title down to 140 coins for the people with virtual monies to spend.

If you were a Lastpass Premium user before earlier today, you may have noticed something peculiar: the latest Chrome Beta update broke autofill. This was especially obnoxious if you used the feature frequently, but today we deliver good news: Lastpass fixed it.

An increasing number of users have stumbled across a new navigation card when looking for directions using the Google Search app. Apparently the tech giant has decided to pull the switch that opens this feature up to a wider populace. The card resembles Google Maps: it provides a map with the trip drawn out, the option to select the desired mode of transportation, alternate routes to select from, and a giant blue start button for when it's time to get moving.
