The Samsung Galaxy S21 series sees its first flat discount, and it’s (still) a good one

Good things come to those who wait. There's been a lot of hype surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S21 series of phones, and the hype is justified--our Galaxy S21 Ultra hands-on shows that it's pretty darn neat! The next line of flagships is expensive, though, with the Ultra retailing at $1,200. It's painful for the wallet,...

Best Buy’s three-day Microsoft sale lets you save on laptops, tablets, and even has the Xbox Series S available!

Yes, that's right--Best Buy has the Xbox Series S in stock, and they've been in stock long enough for me to write this article. All morning, in fact! As part of their Microsoft three-day sale, Best Buy has a slew of digital-only consoles in stock, and they're pretty nice for those on a budget. Not...

Save big on Amazon tech today, including the Echo Show, Ring items, Fire tablets, and more!

You know, Amazon tech is honestly pretty good. I wouldn't say it's cutting edge or anything, but Amazon's line of products can get the job done and not break the bank. Also, if you're invested in the ecosystem, Alexa can be great for making a smart home and one of the cheaper ways to do...

Need a controller for your phone? The Razer Kishi is available at its lowest price yet!

If you're looking to play games on your smartphone, no matter which service you use, you will learn quickly that touch controls... don't feel all that great. While serviceable, a touch screen doesn't give the same physical feedback of buttons clicking and analog sticks moving, and that just might be a more integral experience than...

The new Xbox Wireless Headset looks great, is $99, and you can (try to) pre-order it now

Are you the lucky owner of an Xbox Series X or S? Or are you a PC gamer that needs a new, quality headset that doesn't break the bank? Microsoft has unveiled the Xbox Wireless Headset. As simple as it sounds, this is a new wireless gaming headset that you can use with your Xbox...

Get an Amazon gift card with a purchase of a Sony Xperia, save on shuckable WD easystore HDDs, and more today!

I need to be honest with you all--I didn't even realize President's Day was yesterday. I thought it was next week! Time truly doesn't exist anymore, does it? Well, it's time to make up for the long weekend, as there are a slew of great deals to take advantage of today! Whether you want to...

Amazon’s Deal of the Day is the Dell XPS 9310, one of the best Thunderbolt 4 laptops!

You may be asking right now, "what's a Thunderbolt 4 laptop, and why do I want it?". I was the same until my colleague Kunal Khullar wrote up a list about the best Thunderbolt 3 laptops and why they're so great. Basically, if you're a creative professional, a Thunderbolt laptop's data speeds will make your...

The special Red & Blue Mario Edition Nintendo Switch is available for purchase–here’s where to grab one

In honor of Mario's 35th anniversary, Nintendo is releasing a special Red & Blue Mario Edition of the Nintendo Switch. The console uses Mario's iconic red and blue to really make it pop. The console looks neat! While Nintendo hasn't announced if it's limited yet, you don't want to leave your purchase up to chance,...

The Apple AirPods Pro are currently $180, one of their lowest prices yet at Amazon!

Look, the Apple AirPods Pro are great. They're fantastic little earbuds, hands down, and unlike many Apple products, they work outside their ecosystem with Android devices. It's pretty awesome. These super nice earbuds have regularly discounted to $190, but today Amazon has the popular earbuds down to $180. If you're here, you probably don't need an...

The Microsoft Surface Duo gets a massive price cut as it prepares for its European launch

I really like the design of the Microsoft Surface Duo. I like the concept of foldable phones mostly because the design means that the screen won't get scratched up. While I'm careful of my smartphones, I'm also just a clumsy person, so I'm bound to drop my devices sooner rather than later. While the Surface...

You can now pre-order the best Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab S7, in a new Mystic Navy color

Did you catch my post last week about great tablets? Great, then you know that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is probably the best Android tablet around. It's a favorite with the XDA staff, and for a good reason, being one of the few companies that truly compete with Apple's iPad offerings on the marketplace....

Say ‘I love you’ to the gamer in your life with a discount on Razer Quartz products

I am pretty happy that pink-colored tech items have been taking off lately. It's a really nice color for tech! Black is boring, and white can look dirty and get stained too easily if the material isn't up to snuff. The pink and rose gold colors manage to look great while not being too overwhelming...
