Google is doing everything in its power to make the Chromecast and Chromecast Audio the cheapest way to add streaming capabilities to your home. The Google Store is now selling (almost giving away) the Chromecast and Chromecast Audio for $30 each, or you can get two for $55. Oh, and you also get some Google Play goodies when you purchase.

Google is currently running a promotion in the Play Store that could make you and someone you like very happy. Under Movies & TV you can find eight movies that, if you buy one, comes with a free copy you can gift to another person in the US. Read More
The SmartWatch 3 was never the most distinguished wristwatch. James Bond may carry around an Xperia phone, but not even Sony can get him to travel the world with so much plastic wrapped around his wrist. Read More
Like you, I love external battery packs. I especially like ones that don't require you to plug them into the wall. Okay, ZeroLemon's SolarJuice backup chargers aren't quite there yet—you could easily spend a weekend getting enough power from the sun to recharge your phone once. But boy, there's something about having the option that sure feels awesome. And I live in a part of the country that's not unfamiliar with losing electricity for days due to hurricanes, so there's that. Read More
The Nexus 5X was, frankly, overpriced from day one. The 32GB 5X was a scant $70 less than a 32GB 6P, the latter being a substantially better device in most ways. As such, the Nexus 5X was predictably the only one of the two to get a Black Friday / Cyber Monday price cut. Google dropped the price of the 5X by $80, bringing the 16GB to $299 and the 32GB to $349.
Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have ended, you'd expect that the 5X would have returned to its original price point, but no: Google has maintained a $50 discount on the device with no end date specified. Read More
Nova Launcher has been on the top of the heap when it comes to third-party launchers for a few years now, but you have to drop five smackers for the full version... most of the time. Coinciding with the release of v4.2 (previously in beta), Nova Launcher Prime is on sale for a mere $0.99 in the US and even less elsewhere. Read More
For some people, an external battery pack provides comfort during a power outage. For others, it's a necessity, a way to avoid being alone once the sun sets.
Either way, don't spend your money on a charger that can only re-power your phone once before blowing its load. Instead, wait for a deal online and get something that can go five times as long. Read More
Christmas is coming. You can sit around next to a paper calendar, crossing out the days, or you can put on a seasonal album and start moving.
Don't have any Christmas albums? I know, it's not exactly what comes to mind for many of us during the rest of the year (hey, not everyone has the urge to play Jingle Bells in July). Fortunately Google is looking out for you. You can currently download two merry albums for free on Google Play. Read More
Want a 2013 Nexus 7? If you're still getting your 7-inch Nexus devices confused, think of this as the good one. Grabbing one now may be a much faster way to get Marshmallow than waiting on an update. Read More
You may have missed it, but remote controlled cars have gotten much cooler than they were when you were a kid. These days you're not just holding down a trigger and throwing your hands up as, yet again, you go into a turn fast enough to send your car flying off the track. Read More
