Take a whopping $250 off this Harman Kardon speaker with Google Assistant

Take a whopping $250 off this Harman Kardon speaker with Google Assistant

We've featured the Harman Kardon Citation 100 a few times before on this site: it's a great smart speaker with an almost unbelievable price. At $350 (nearly four times the price of a comparable Nest Audio), even fans of the audiophile brand would be hard-pressed to justify the MSRP. Today's discount, down to just $94, isn't quite the cheapest we've ever seen. But it's still a fantastic deal for anyone in the market.

How do you do fellow kids: Google's newest Pixel ad is zoomer bait

How do you do fellow kids: Google's newest Pixel ad is zoomer bait

Google wants you to know it's hip. It knows exactly what kids like these days: ASMR, bananas, and scrolling through videos on TikTok. Since they're already used two of those to advertise its current lineup of Pixel phones, it only makes sense to follow it up with the final entry in what has become a bizarre trilogy of commercials aimed at going viral. Google has partnered with creator Dayne N Simple to create a video poem in honor of its smartphones.

New Nvidia partnership could hint at Chromebooks with RTX graphics

New Nvidia partnership could hint at Chromebooks with RTX graphics

Nvidia hasn't exactly set the world on fire with its Tegra line of Arm-based mobile processors. Outside of its own excellent SHIELD hardware (and notably the Nintendo Switch), it's basically dead. But the company is hoping to breathe new life into its Arm ambitions by doubling down on what it does best: graphics. In a press release, Nvidia announced that it's working with major chip supplier MediaTek to combine Arm-based architecture with its RTX line of graphics cards.

Good luck buying a OnePlus Watch

Good luck buying a OnePlus Watch

OnePlus managed to scrounge up a lot of excitement for its first smartwatch last month at its official unveiling.

Launch day has arrived, and OnePlus's newest gadget is officially up for sale — or it would be, rather, if it hadn't sold out almost immediately.

Amazon's new Echo Buds might actually be worth buying

Amazon introduced its self-branded true wireless earbuds, the Echo Buds, a year and a half ago.
