Chromecast Finally Back in Stock at, Likely Not for Long

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 9.34.11 AM

Google’s $35 Chromecast appears to be back in stock at for the time being. Over the last 24 hours, we watched as it went in and out of stock, but for now, you can jump through the electronics retailer’s site and have one shipped within 1 business day. Store pick-up is not showing as an option for me; however, depending on your location you may see that change.

Also, BestBuy appears to still be offering the 3-month free Netflix promo.

Meanwhile, Google is still showing a ship day of September 3 through Google Play.

Update:  Annnnnnd, sold out again. Keep an eye on it though, as stock has been jumping around for a day or so.

They have both 16GB and 32GB WiFi models in stock at the same $229 and $269 prices.  (more…)

The new Nexus 7, even though it will likely be announced at a Google event on Wednesday, has been leaked more ways than we can count over the last 3-4 days. It initially popped up in a series of photos and video, then through a variety of retailer inventory systems showing pricing and availability dates, and then moments ago in an official press render. And with all of that, we still wanted confirmation on an upgraded display, along with more information on a launch date. We think we now have that thanks to a Best Buy ad that is scheduled to run in next Sunday’s paper.  (more…)
