I don't miss remote controls. Okay, I haven't gotten completely free of them. But aside from my television, I've largely moved away from things that require their own button-laden controller. Blu-Ray players. Sound systems. Cable boxes. Why should relaxing on the couch be so complicated? Read More
The Nexus Player was never really the best set-top box, and thanks to the NVIDIA SHIELD, it's not the best thing running Android TV either. Fortunately you can get one for cheap. Best Buy is selling the thing for half of what you would pay on the Google Store. Yup, only $50. Read More
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that Google announced lots of new toys at the Nexus event today. Two of these devices are the Chromecast 2015 and the Chromecast Audio. After the event was over, they became available on the Google Store for $35. These Chromecasts will start shipping very soon, and some might be getting them tomorrow.
If you'd rather buy your Chromecast from Best Buy, then you're in luck. Best Buy has put up their product pages for both the Chromecast 2015 and the Chromecast Audio. They are both priced at $35 dollars and are eligible for free shipping. Read More
The Nexus Player pumps TV shows and games alike to your TV, but for the latter, you're probably not going to use the included remote. Instead, you can consider springing for the Nexus Player gamepad to go with your set-top box. Read More
It's been almost a year since HTC announced its Re sports-focused camera, and there's no indication that the company intends to continue the product line with another entry. So maybe the smartphone maker isn't interested in going toe-to-toe with GoPro, but that means that you can get some great deals on a product that's less popular than its competitors. Today Best Buy is offering a bundle deal that includes both the camera and a bar mount (ideal for cyclists) for $99.99.
That's half off of the retail price of the camera with a $20 bonus for the mount, which brings the total discount to $120. Read More
Like the Kindle tablets that came before it, Amazon's Fire TV Stick is built on top of a customized version of Android. You won't find the Play Store and Google apps on your television screen if you pick one up, but it's still a good way to get your hands on apps. Then, of course, there are the ever-so-important TV shows and movies.
Best Buy is currently offering the Fire TV Stick for $25. That's $15 less than the product's usual price. This also matches the amount Amazon was selling the media dongle for during its big Prime Day sale in mid-July. Read More
Asus has a history of making inexpensive Android tablets. While it doesn't make Nexus tablets anymore, the Taiwanese OEM is still chugging along in the tablet market. The latest tablet from Asus is the ZenPad S 8.0, and it's now available at Best Buy in the US. It doesn't appear to be for sale through any other channel yet.
If you should find yourself in need of a way to jam to some tunes on the go, Best Buy has a good deal on a Sony portable Bluetooth speaker today. I know, I'm as surprised as you, but it's actually a solid sale.
The Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM speaker is currently marked down to $50 as a Best Buy deal of the day. That's a 50% discount on what I would personally say is an awesome little portable Bluetooth speaker. Our very own Camerson Summerson would say the same, albeit in more detail.
This deal undercuts the last Best Buy sale, which was just over a week ago, by $10. This time around, you can get the speaker in all black or with a red front grille, and you can pick up the green-on-purple Barney the Dinosaur edition at the same price. Read More
If you're in the market for a super-portable Bluetooth speaker, you've got a lot of options. But if you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker that doesn't suck, and further more can be had at a discount, your options become significantly more constrained. According to Cameron Summerson, who's probably tried more speakers in the last year than he's had hot dinners, the Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM is an excellent choice.
Normally this tiny speaker goes for a hundred bucks, but Best Buy's daily deal has it discounted down to $59.99. You can get the all black version or the one with the snazzy red grille for that price, but for some reason the green-on-purple Barney the Dinosaur edition is $79.99 (still a $20 discount). Read More
