Google WiFi pre-orders are now live for those interested in Google’s “smart” router system. At this time, Google is offering up 1-Pack or 3-Pack options depending on your needs.
As a recap, Google WiFi is a “mesh” router system that helps blanket your entire house with WiFi. Instead of having a single wireless router in your office or kitchen that can’t stretch to your upstairs or back bedroom, a system like this allows you to help reach those areas. It’s a bit modular in that you can add on Google WiFi units as needed, depending on the size of your home. (more…)
Amazon is hosting another of its patented flash storage sales, this time with PNY as the partner. You can get up to 50% off select PNY flash storage products, but if we’re talking specifically mobile, there are two microSD cards you’ll want to consider.
For $33.99, you can grab a 128GB Elite PNY microSD card that is coupled in a bundle with an OTG reader. That OTG reader allows you to easily move files or photos or videos from phone to computer. OTG readers are an incredibly handy gadget to have in your bag.
For $18.99, you can grab the 64GB version of the same bundle. (more…)
For one day only, Amazon is slashing another $30 off its special ad-filled Moto G4, dropping the price to $119.99. While that “ad-filled” description may turn you off, it’s not actually the worst situation should be in the market for a new cheap phone.
The Moto G4 is a great budget phone with solid specs and really good performance that normally retails for $200, but this particular version sees extra discounts because it shows Amazon ads here and there. We’re talking about ads on the lock screen that are personalized to you, so it shouldn’t be complete spam. You can’t get rid of them either; keep that in mind.
Outside of the ad stuff, this is a phone that works universally on all the big carriers (Verizon and AT&T included) and has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 1.5GHz octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, and turbo charging. It really is a solid phone for those of you on a budget.
