Google's Clips is quite unlike any camera you've seen before. Announced along with the Pixel 2 in October 2017, this camera uses machine learning to detect when something interesting is happening and automatically take motion photos (think short videos without sound). Google seemed to target it to households with kids or pets where parents may want to leave the camera laying around and then check it out to see if it captured anything interesting. However, with a price tag as high as $250 and a launch date that slipped way into February/early March, Clips sort of came to market without much fanfare. Read More
You have your choice of Google Assistant speakers, from Google's own Home, Home Mini, Home Max, to the different third-party solutions that are popping up from the likes of JBL, Sony, Mobvoi, and more. But when it comes to cheap solutions, the Home Mini at $35 still sort of reigns supreme. Today, however, it might be getting a bit of a competition from Best Buy's Insignia brand.
The site is offering its well rated Insignia Voice speakers for a very, very, very discounted price. The regular speaker is down from $99.99 to $24.99 and the portable version is down from $149.99 to $49.99. Read More

Sony's Xperia XZ2 series is up for pre-order now, but the Premium version is still a little ways off from being available. It'll also likely cost a fortune by the time it launches. So if you want a premium experience and you're a fan of Sony's hardware and/or software, you can turn your head to the previous generation XZ Premium, which is now at an all-time low of $525 on Amazon.
The XZ Premium launched for $799 at first, but then the MSRP was lowered to a more approachable $699. It's still the quoted price now, though recently the phone has settled around $600. 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
Samsung's Gear S3 is quite possibly the best smartwatch you can buy right now if you're an Android user. The design is classy, the display is gorgeous, battery life is above average in the category, Samsung Pay is supported, and the rotating bezel makes navigating the menus less cumbersome than tapping on a tiny display. Plus, props go to Samsung for making Tizen a compelling interface on smartwatches. But for $349 straight up, the S3 Frontier is one big investment that equals the price of a very nice midrange smartphone. If you've had your eye on one but couldn't pull the plug, you may want to check this refurb from Best Buy's Geek Squad for $184.99. Read More
Augmented Reality and ARCore are the hottest games in town nowadays, but if you're still grappling with the idea of Virtual Reality to begin with or if you prefer to immerse yourself completely instead of superimposing something on top of your existing world, then there's a nice deal for you at Best Buy.
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
