When you're following tech deals, you never quite know what you're going to get. Some weeks it feels like all you're seeing for sale are smart-home devices, or sometimes it's Bluetooth speaker after Bluetooth speaker. And while we really appreciate all those offers, they just can't quite compete with the allure of saving serious money on really big-ticket items — and in this scene, that means discounts on smartphones themselves. If that's what you're craving, we're happy to deliver, as this past week has been straight-up inundated with deals on some of the biggest smartphones around. Read More
If VR interests you to any degree, then this deal is one you should pay attention to. Assuming you have a compatible phone, you can grab a charcoal 2017 Daydream View virtual reality headset for just $30, courtesy of Verizon. That's an insane $70 (70%) off. Read More
The Daydream View (2017) virtual reality headset was announced last October along with the Pixel 2 devices, bringing better lenses, a better fabric material, and a controller that matches its color. Ever since, it has dipped from its $99 MSRP price a few times, the last of which was a half-off at Best Buy in March. Now the offer is back, but it's not just Best Buy that is discounting it: the same $49 price is available on the Google Store and a few other retailers.
If you're intrigued by Virtual Reality and don't want to invest in thousands of dollars worth of equipment, the Daydream View remains one of the cheapest ways to dip your toes and see the potential uses. Read More

The retailer is offering the 2017 edition of the Daydream View headset for 50% off. This is the one that has the better materials, better lenses, and the matching colored controller. The discount brings the price down from $99 to a more palatable $49.95. All three colors are available - charcoal, fog, and coral - and shipping is free. Read More

Back at I/O in May, Google teased the Daydream 2.0 update, codenamed Euphrates, which would bring a more social aspect to using the VR platform by casting what the user sees on another screen.

With these two new Pixels announced, it would appear that we need a new Daydream View to go with them. It's the same Daydream View we've known and loved for the last year — with the same name, even — but including a small number of improvements. The all-new Daydream View has better lenses, new materials, and three new colors. And, it's even got a new (higher) price. The new headset will set you back a slightly-increased $99. Read More
