[Deal Alert] Half off Google Pixel 2 & 2 XL first-party Carbon fabric and Rock cases at Best Buy

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

The first-party fabric and Google Earth Live cases for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL were among our favorites when we reviewed them, but the high price tag associated with Google's self-branded cases probably prevented many of our readers from picking one up. Thankfully for them, Best Buy has marked down the Carbon and Rock cases for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL by half.

The only unfortunate drawback is that you'll need to pop for shipping if you order via Best Buy's site, but many store locations have the item in stock for easy pickup.

Google is trying to catch fakes by launching several pages for you to report them.

There are now dedicated pages for reporting fake ChromecastsPixel Buds, Google PixelbookGoogle Clips, Google Wifi, plus a general page to report any other fake Google hardware.

The Pixel 2 XL’s oleophobic coating is so bad I almost don’t want to use the phone anymore

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

When the Pixel 2 XL came out, there was a great deal of consternation about the LG-made OLED panel. I was firmly in the "it's fine" camp, but my opinion has changed over time. No, I didn't suddenly decide the blue shift was a deal breaker. The oleophobic coating on the glass is just so bad that my phone is constantly a smeared, gross mess. It's so annoying that I almost don't want to use this phone, which I otherwise adore.

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Last weekend we really wanted to bring you a roundup of our favorite tech deals of the previous few days, but when it came time to catalog them all and share them with you, all the good ones had expired. That's the problem with a lot of these offers — they may be really compelling deals, but they can also be seriously fleeting. Luckily, this week's sales are proving to be much kinder to those of us who like to have some time to think about purchases before diving in, and plenty of the good ones are still running.
