Google Store now selling 'Certified Refurbished' devices: Pixelbooks, WiFi 3-packs

Fans of discounts should be glad to hear that Google's own storefront has just picked up a whole new category of products: Refurbs. Today we spotted a new section of the Google Store selling nothing but first-party refurbished products, all supposedly held to "the same high standards and rigorous testing of any device with the Google name." Right now all it's slinging are refurbished Pixelbooks and Google Wifi 3-packs in limited quantities.

Pixel Slate gets its best discount yet of $250 off ($549 and up) through August 18

When we reviewed the Celeron-powered Pixel Slate late last year, we found it to be a giant identity crisis that made it not so good as either a laptop or a tablet. Well, if you do appreciate whatever form factor Google was trying to go for there and are happy to play with better specs to avoid much of the sluggishness that was reported on the poor 'ol entry-level model, you can get a Slate for $250 off for a limited time.

[Updated] Amazon UK Prime Day roundup — Deals on Amazon devices, smart home tech, phones, and more

Remember when you had to wait until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to stock up on cheap tech? Nah, me neither, and that's largely thanks to Amazon and the advent of Prime Day. Not only does Amazon discount its own hardware and tons of other stuff on its site, other retailers have had no choice but to join in. This means that Prime Day (confusingly, a two-day event) is a great time to find deals on the latest tech each summer — today and tomorrow, to be precise.

Google deals on Home and Nest include $25 Home Mini, $238 Nest Cam Outdoor 2-pack

One of the constants in consumer societies is deals. As long as companies exist and make products, they'll try to discount them to move some inventory and gain market share. That's even more true when it comes to the smart home, where products are often considered novelties but can also provide a strong tie-in to an ecosystem. Like Amazon, Google wants you to grab its own smart speakers and connected devices, so it keeps discounting them to lure more of us in. I have enough smart devices in my home, but if you're still looking to beef up your own setup, there are some Google deals to take advantage of now.

Nest.com makes a new home for itself on the Google Store

Google and Nest products have been integrated for many years now, but changes we've seen in the past few months show that the two brands are becoming closer than ever. The latest indicator of this is the virtual deprecation of the Nest.com site, with the landing page asking people to visit the Google Store instead.

Individual Stadia controllers now available for Google Store pre-order

Before today the only way to pre-order an extra Stadia controller was if you already purchased the $130 Founder's Edition. As of this morning, Google is now offering a standalone Stadia controller to anyone for $69 plus shipping, though there is a catch, only those that own access to the Founder's Edition will be able to make use of the device before the public release of the game streaming service in 2020.

RIP: The Celeron Google Pixel Slate is officially dead

The writing has been on the wall for months, so it must not be a surprise for anyone that the Celeron Pixel Slates, the lower-end $599 and $699 models that were very briefly available and didn't impress much, are now completely gone from the Google Store. All mentions of both variants have been wiped off, as if they never existed in the first place.

Google-approved Nest Hello indoor power adapter hits Google Store for $29

The Nest Hello is one of the best smart home devices I've ever used, but it won't work in all homes. You need a low-voltage wired doorbell and a compatible transformer to power Nest Hello, or at least you did until now. A Google-approved indoor power adapter is now available for $29, making the Hello compatible with almost any home.
