The Google Home Max drops to £200 (50% off) in the UK

When Google unveiled the Home Max back in 2017, I was thrilled about its high-quality audio, 4.5" woofers, and Smart Sound features. However, its $400 price tag made me rethink my decision, and I ended up buying a premium cast-enabled Sony speaker together with a Home Mini for less than $300.

[Update: More and more countries] Google One's storage plans start rolling out in the UK and Canada

After tentatively launching in the US in May, Google One, aka Google's new unified storage plans and service, has been shyly expanding. It didn't become available to "everyone" in the US until August, and even then, there were plenty of exceptions that meant not all users were able to migrate to the new plans. After that, it was announced for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico as well as India. Now, users in two more countries are getting emails notifying them of an upgrade to Google One.
