Own one of the few Daydream-ready phones, but have yet to pick-up Google’s Daydream View? Now is the time! From today through February 25, you can buy a Daydream View from the Google Store for just $49. That’s a $30 discount on the best mobile VR experience you can get.
We reviewed the Daydream View back in November and really did call it “pretty sweet!” The experience tops other mobile VR units because it includes a little motion controller that allows you to interact with games in a way that others don’t. It’s also really comfortable and is getting better each week with new apps and games. (more…)
Samsung’s Fast Wireless Charging Stand is probably the best accessory it has released in recent years. I say that because it not only offers fast wireless charging to your supported phone, it also acts as a stand to give you that constant proper desk-level view for prime interactivity. If you don’t already own one, you should take advantage of the Flash Steals deal today that prices the device at just $24.99. (more…)
CES 2017 is officially here and Lenovo is one of the first companies out of the gate with some major announcements. Their line-up for 2017 will of course include new computers, but on a mobile or smart home front, we have some other goodies to share. First up, Lenovo announced the Lenovo Smart Assistant, which is a smart home speaker powered by Amazon Alexa. Think of it as an Amazon Echo and Google Home mash-up device, only made by Lenovo.

Here are a couple of last minute deals on AUKEY’s Quick Charge-powered products before we jump into the Christmas weekend. Each needs its own coupon code entered at checkout to get the good price, but you can handle that, right?
If you need a power bank for those long days where you can’t find a power outlet, the AUKEY 16000mAh power bank with Quick Charge 3.0 technology is just $23. Or, if you would rather have a 5-port wall charger with a Quick Charge 2.0 port, you are looking at just $12.
The deals are good through the weekend.
Eero, the smart WiFi system that uses mesh network technology and pre-dates Google WiFi by a good two years, is on sale today at Amazon in a 3-pack for $371.83 with Prime shipping. That’s a $127 discount and the best price we have ever seen on this modular-style router option.
What is Eero? If you have been following Google WiFi news in recent months, well, there you go. Eero is the same idea, only it’s from a smaller company who has been pioneering this concept for a couple of years. Like Google WiFi, the goal of Eero is to blanket your house with WiFi, so that no corner goes untouched. You can start with a single unit and grow that to as many as you like. (more…)
Amazon dropped the price of the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot today to $139.99 and $39.99, respectively. That’s a solid $40 discount on the bigger Echo and $10 off the already reasonably priced Echo Dot.
I’m not sure I need to explain for the 20th time what each does, so I’ll try to keep this short. Echo products from Amazon are like smart home voice control boxes, but the bigger Echo includes a decent-sounding speaker too for tune listening. Each device is good for ordering stuff from Amazon, getting news or weather or sports scores, setting timers and alarms, playing music from popular streaming services, playing games (like Jeopardy!), and more. They are very much a more seasoned Google Home because they have been around a lot longer.
If interested, these are the best prices you’ll find and we aren’t sure how long they will last. With that in mind, Amazon is showing some pretty delayed shipping times. However, a handful of additional retailers are selling these at the same prices, with Xmas-approve shipping.

Samsung is still one of the few companies making 256GB microSD cards and it just so happens that they have discounted their best today on Amazon. The 256GB Samsung EVO Select microSD card has just $159.99, which is a $40 discount from its normal $200 price.
While not cheap, this is storage that should last you for years, or will at least hold the majority of your music collection. Plus, you are looking at 95MB/s transfer speeds and also speeds fast enough for handling 4K video shoots.
The deal is for a limited time and does include Prime shipping.

With Xmas only a couple of weeks away, you should start thinking about grabbing those last few presents for loved ones. Don’t be that guy (me) running around on December 23 looking for final gifts.
If you need a handful of affordable stocking-stuffer items, you might want to take a look at all of the Anker products that are discounted right now at Amazon. Devices like their fast wireless charger ($20), PowerCore 5000 quick charge power bank ($14), and Quick Charge 3.0 car charger ($17) all have solid price drops.
Each includes Prime shipping as well. (more…)
