The new OnePlus 3T is a respectable if not earth-shattering update to the alternative flagship - see Ryan Whitwam's review for the full breakdown of the new phone and how it compares with the original OP3. It went on sale in the US last week, but now buyers in Europe also have a chance to get their hands on one. It's straight sales all the way - none of the ticket systems that OnePlus used to indulge in. Read More
There are plenty of choices when it comes to security cameras, but for the longest time, most of them needed to be tethered to electricity and couldn't be placed outdoors. Now, lots of companies like Nest and Canary are releasing outdoor-friendly cameras, but Arlo has been doing it for a while before them. The wireless Arlo security cam system is comprised of one smart home base connected to power and your router, and one or several small cameras interspersed around your house or business. Read More

Something about the international Duos (dual-SIM) models of Samsung's Galaxy phones makes them ripe for discounts, especially on eBay. We start seeing good deals on these phones a few weeks after release, and they only get better with time. Case in point: today one vendor is offering both the standard Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge, both in Duos flavors, both for hundreds of dollars off of MSRP. The S7 Duos is just $469.99 while the S7 Edge Duos is $519.99.
The mobile market is mature enough that there aren't too many issues left when it comes to cross-compatibility between Android and iOS, at least for relatively simple matters like mobile web surfing or SMS. But the latest flagship phones on both sides of the aisle seem to have a bit of digital beef, at least according to a few Pixel owners.

Here's a deal that should please just about everyone. Target's Cyber Monday promotion started today and is offering 15 percent off tens of thousands of different products. Purchases made with a Target Red card are also eligible for an addition 5% off for a total savings of near 20% (the 5% discount is applied after the 15% discount, so it's slightly less than 20% off).
As you might imagine, certain brands and product categories are excluded from the promotion. The most notable exclusions for our tech addicted readers are Bose, GoPro, Sonos, Google products, DSLR cameras, LG & Samsung TVs. Dairy products, alcohol, Vitamix blenders, and Elf on the Shelf are also on the excluded products list. Read More
