Baby monitors are so old school now. You have smart cameras that are tailored for baby monitoring, and if you don't want to buy new gear you can use your phone that's several times more powerful than the regular speaker/microphone combo of a baby monitor. Apps that let you do this are all over the Play Store, but one of the best ones is now discounted to 10 cents. If you have a baby/toddler or you might soon have one, this deal is for you.
Baby Monitor 3G uses two devices (phones, tablets, desktop computers) connected over WiFi, 3G, or LTE, one as a baby station and the other as a parent station. Read More
In the market for a Google Home to see what all the fuss is about or to supplement your already existing collection of speakers around the house? Then today's Best Buy deal might actually sway you to go big with your purchase by adding some lights and getting a free Chromecast.
Best Buy is selling the Google Home for $104.49 (MSRP $129) and the Philips Hue White and Color A19 Starter Kit for its $179.99 MSRP (though Amazon has it for $150). But if you add both to the cart, you will see the Home go down to $87.25, the Hue kit to $121.74, and a free $35 Chromecast will be added to the cart. Read More
We love Synology's products here, but this latest deal isn't on the company's famous NAS gear but its lesser known routers. Jordan has already reviewed the RT2600ac, one of Synology's two routers, and came away impressed. He called it a beast thanks to its good range, speed, as well as its user-friendly interface and Android app that lets you control priorities and change settings easily from your phone.
If you were looking for a router (and you're not swayed by the various mesh options), I'd suggest you check out Jordan's review first and then look at these deals. Both the RT2600ac and its older sibling the RT1900ac are being discounted around $30 on Amazon, Newegg, and B&H. Read More
WiFi routers are seeing a complete renaissance the last couple of years thanks to mesh networks, and eero was one of the first to spearhead this movement. This June, eero released the 2nd generation of its routers and these are the ones being discounted now.
The 3-router pack is the most discounted, dropping from $499 to $439.99. The router + 2 beacons pack is down from $399 to $356. And finally the router + 1 beacon pack is down from $299 to $267.99. The discounts may not be huge, but for a super recent product that has never dipped in price, this 10-12% off is a good deal especially if you were already considering getting a mesh system.

Every now and then, Runtastic throws a bone to active and sporty people by discounting its Pro apps to zero. That's zilch. No pennies, no dimes, no dollars. It's happened with Sit Ups Pro, Pedometer Pro, Road Bike Pro, and now is the time for Mountain Bike Pro.
For mountain bikers, Runtastic's app provides MTB tour tracking and thousands of bike routes, voice coaching so you don't have to get your eyes off the road and risk an injury, live tracking, offline maps for those out-of-reach areas, music controls, and plenty of stats and graphs to satisfy your inner nerd or your thirst for improvement.

Look, no one likes going back to school more than parents. If you're feeling a little guilty that you're relieved the little ones are now out of your hair and back under the supervision of teachers and principals, then you may want to give them something to enjoy in the weekends or the afternoons. And that something could be a nice game for them to play on
your their SHIELD TV. If so, NVIDIA has some discounts just for you.
A few GeForce Now games are seeing their prices slashed (these come with a downloadable PC code), as well as some Android titles. Read More

Chromebooks that support the Play Store on the stable channel are still few and far between. The ASUS C100PA, otherwise known as the Chromebook Flip, is one of them and for the next 15 hours or so, you can grab one for cheap on Woot!
This is a factory reconditioned unit, which Woot! specifies is a returned unit that has been inspected, brought back to factory state by the original manufacturer or a certified partner, and repackaged. According to the description, it's "as close to new as you can get without technically being new." That seems like a good place to start, plus the C100PA in this case is backed by a 90-day ASUS warranty. Read More
Over-ear Bluetooth headphones are a dime a dozen these days, but great ones that also offer noise canceling and high-quality audio are few and far between. Sony's MDR-1000X is one of these but its $399.99 price is enough to give anyone pause. However, it's now being discounted $102 thus making it $298, its lowest price yet.
The MDR-1000X is often mentioned each time we talk about the Bose QC35 and other expensive noise canceling headphones, because it falls in the same league and offers one clear advantage over its competitors: LDAC support. In layman terms, LDAC lets you transmit high-quality audio files (24-bit, 96kHz) quickly enough over Bluetooth, but if you're interested in learning more about it, you can check out this explainer from Android Authority.
