The list of supported services has further grown since our last post, as Google Pay now supports 25 more services in 14 countries in Europe, Asia, and Australia.

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.

Amazon brings Alexa integration to Android TV starting with Sony Bravias

Hell officially froze over when Google and Amazon decided to bury their squabbles and stop locking each other out of their respective TV ecosystems.

The OnePlus 7 is available to buy today in the UK, Europe, and Asia

For every major market except the United States, a new OnePlus phone is available for purchase today. The OnePlus 7 is very much an updated 6T (a 6Tt, if you will), but I found the upgrades to be worthwhile when I tested the phone for my review, especially considering the price is the same.
