When Stadia launched last year, the only way to access the platform was to buy the Premiere hardware bundle. It includes Stadia’s Wi-Fi controller and the 4K-capable Chromecast Ultra, with three months of Stadia Pro for $130. It wasn’t a bad deal, considering the combined value was $170. Now, it’s slightly better, as the price on the Google Store is down to $100.

Good news for some Nest Aware subscribers, Google is sending out emails with a free Nest Hub offer to some users. The deal seems limited to anyone on the new $12 a month plan when paid annually, so if you haven’t seen an email, that might be why. But maybe check your spam just in case.
In its day, the iPhone XR was one of the best smartphones you could buy. But time moves on, and new phones (and iPhones) are always on the way. Sometimes, though, that fact can work in your favor. Apple now sells refurbished iPhone XR models, and that means you can save a pretty penny on a great phone.
If your idea of staying at home involves Totally And Radically Driving In Space, then we have good news for you.
