The launch of the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus a couple of months ago meant two things. Firstly, there's a new budget king in town, with the Moto G range always offering incredible value for money. Secondly, you should now be able to pick up the last generation devices for less, giving you even better bang for your buck.

Google announces Daydream standalone VR headsets with beacon-free position tracking, HTC Vive and Lenovo onboard

VR has slowed in both improvements and public excitement recently. But that hasn't stopped Google from bettering its Daydream platform, its take on so-called "smartphone VR." Like Samsung's version, Daydream requires a phone to operate. As cool as this was, it led to some issues, notably battery life and heat. During this year's I/O keynote, Google announced the Standalone VR headsets that were rumored yesterday. As the name suggests, these devices won't require a phone to operate.

[Update: Gone from Amazon] Deal Alert: Pick up a 64GB/4GB Moto G4 Plus for $200 at Amazon and B&H, the lowest price we've ever seen

The guys at Droid Life spotted a pretty great deal today in the form of the G4 Plus @ $200 over on B&H. While we were checking it out, we also noticed that it's the same price over at Amazon. Both B&H and Amazon might be claiming that this is a $100 off, but if you look at price histories on Amazon and most other retailers, it's closer to a $60 savings. Nonetheless, that's almost a quarter off, making it a pretty nice price for the phone. And, by $20, the lowest price we've ever seen for it.

[No Words] Motorola's new commercial is all kinds of bizarre and confusing

I could write a long post mocking this new Moto commercial or explaining everything that's weird and inappropriate about it. I could lament the poor sense of humor, the slightly offensive misuse of the accent, the horrendous stylistic execution, the failed avant-gardiste vibe, or, and I'm just spitballing here, the lack of a clear story and the super confusing message at the end. But instead, I will just leave this here:
