Last weekend we really wanted to bring you a roundup of our favorite tech deals of the previous few days, but when it came time to catalog them all and share them with you, all the good ones had expired. That's the problem with a lot of these offers — they may be really compelling deals, but they can also be seriously fleeting. Luckily, this week's sales are proving to be much kinder to those of us who like to have some time to think about purchases before diving in, and plenty of the good ones are still running. Here are seven of the best from the past week: Read More
Back at Google I/O, we missed a little interesting nugget of information. It was quietly announced that Google Home and Home Mini will be launching in seven new countries during 2018: Denmark, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and Sweden. And it's Spain we're focusing on today as it seems like the launch is imminent in the country: both the Google Home and Home Mini were briefly posted on El Corte Inglés's website then removed, plus the site is also showing Google Wifi router 1-pack and 3-pack (those pages haven't been taken down yet).

The weekend has arrived, and that spells time to relax, unwind, and focus on really enjoying yourself. Those of you in the States may be gearing up for a big Memorial Day party, braving supermarket crowds to stock up on hot dogs, hamburgers, and all the requisite cookout staples. To help offset some of those expenses we thought we'd bring you a roundup of some of our favorite tech deals over the past week. Read More
Need a bunch of stuff available on Google Express? Want a Google Home Mini? Well, then, this is serendipitous: until June 5, you can get a free Home Mini with a promo code when you buy stuff worth $125 or more on Google Express. Read More
The Google Home Mini is probably the best value smart speaker you can buy. Not only do you get a fully-fledged Assistant experience, but you get okay sound out of it, too. Last Christmas, they went on sale for $30 each, which basically made them an impulse buy. Costco has had a 3-pack for a while now, which dipped down to $100 not too long ago (which was already a great deal). Now, you can pick up this bundle for a measly $80, almost half of what you would spend to buy three Home Minis separately at their $49 MSRP. Read More
Mother's Day is almost upon us and so are the related deals. If your mom needs a new phone and you do too, or maybe if both your mom and mother-in-law need new phones, you may want to give Verizon's BOGO offers a look. 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
As a pleased owner of a Google Home Mini, I often find myself wondering why I didn't buy one or two more of these tiny smart speakers to scatter around our apartment unit. When I ask my wife what she thinks of getting some companions for our lone Mini, she aggressively asks "Why?" — and, well, that's the end of that. But now Costco is giving me some new ammunition, thanks to a deal offering members the chance to purchase a Google Home Mini (charcoal or chalk) three-pack for just $99.99, which is $15 off of the normal going price.

Asking a Google Home to set an alarm or reminder is a rudimentary use for one of those smart speakers. But it seems some users recently found that their Google Home failed to sound alarms and reminders that were set. Now Google is saying that a fix has been rolled out and those functions are working again. Read More
"Ok Google, remind me to fill you up with chocolate hobnobs."
Thanks to a wonderful error spotted in the UK, the shopping card in Google Search seems to think Google Home Mini is a 'Vintage Retro Biscuit Tin.' I'm sure bugs of this sort happen all the time, but it's especially funny that it's happened to one of Google's own devices. Read More
