[Update: More retailers] The Lenovo Smart Clock is already $60 ($20 off) from Walmart

The Lenovo Smart Clock is more or less a Google Home Mini with a screen and some added alarm functionality. It's a decent little device, but the initial price of $80 was somewhat ridiculous especially when you could buy a Google Nest Hub for even less. Just a month after its release, the Smart Clock has now dropped to $59.99.

With the Pixel 4, Google's smartphones have to grow up

I've been using the Pixel 4 XL for the better part of a day now. I could tell you about that experience, what it's been like, and how the phone's handled. Those kinds of articles are generally what you expect alongside a smartphone launch.
