[Update: Google Store too] Deal alert: Pixel Buds down to $129 ($30 off) at Best Buy

The Pixel Buds were announced alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in October of last year, and since then, we've rarely seen them discounted. Sure, there was a 50% off offer when purchased with a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, but that required you to drop at least $649 on the phone itself. Best Buy currently has the Pixel Buds for $129, $30 off MSRP.

ARM's new A76 CPU core could make your next smartphone a lot faster

ARM unveiled its brand-new A76 CPU design at an event in San Francisco today, and while it may not be in your next smartphone, there's a good chance it'll be in the one after that. And it's going to make it a fair bit faster - around 35% faster than ARM's current top-of-the-line core.

If you're not familiar, ARM is the company behind the CPU instruction set used in essentially every modern smartphone (and yes, that includes the iPhone), and it's also behind the core CPU designs used in the vast majority of them. That includes chips made like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845, with a high-performance processor that is essentially a slight tweak on ARM's current A75 design.

MapleStory M pre-registration starts today

Nexon recently pushed out MapleStory M in a couple of territories as a soft-launch title, so it seems pretty safe to assume that the official release isn't that far off.

Sure, if you happen to live in Canada or any of the other soft-launch regions, you can install this right now to experience some classic 2D MMO action, but the rest of us will have to settle for a few pre-registration rewards as we wait to give it a proper go.

There's something fishy about the transparent Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition [Update]

Xiaomi announced some new phones today, which I'm sure will sell in huge numbers (just not in the US). Among the new devices was the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition. This phone is like the regular M8 except it has a transparent glass back that shows off suspiciously pretty internal components. Really, there's a little Snapdragon logo on what purports to be the SoC. This could all be smoke and mirrors.

Ubisoft revives an aging series with the release of Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians, but it's just another ARPG auto-brawler

The Might & Magic series hasn't received a new entry since the 2014 release of Might & Magic X: Legacy on PC. Well, today that changes as Ubisoft have released a new action RPG on the Play Store called Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians. Even though this should be exciting news for all of you M&M fans out there, all the release really offers is just more of the same monotonous gameplay that can be found in the countless identical titles on the Play Store, such as Summoners War or Marvel Future Fight. That's right, Ubisoft has revived the Might & Magic brand just to slap its skin on some uninspired free-to-play auto-brawling RPG.
