Read this ringing endorsement of the Nexus 6 from Gizmodo, then pick one up unlocked for $350, which is by far the best deal we’ve ever seen. Yeah, it’s basically a year-old phone at this point, but it’s still a really strong performer at this price. [Nexus 6, $350]
Most computer monitors are 16:9, but this $200 LG IPS display is a ridiculous 21:9, giving you extra real estate for application windows, or a wider view in games. [LG 29” IPS LED HD 21:9 UltraWide Monitor, $200]
Today only, Best Buy is offering big discounts on color-shifting Philips Hue products. The Iris is a standalone lamp that you point to a wall to bathe it in color, while the LightStrip is great for mounting under cabinets or furniture to add accents to any room.
As with all Hue products, these lights can change color with a tap of your smartphone, or even based on rules you create in IFTTT. Just note that you’ll need a Hue Bridge to control the Iris, while the LightStrip kit comes with one.
This microfiber towel is considered by many detailing aficionados to be the best for drying off your car. I own it, and can confirm that it’s less a towel and more a towel-shaped sponge. It’s been cheaper than this, but today’s price is on the low end of its usual range.[Meguiar’s X2000 Microfiber Drying Towel, $8]
Xbox One’s DVR functionality won’t be out until next year, but you can still use the console as an OTA TV receiver with a good antenna and tuner.
Microsoft’s official live TV bundle includes an amplified Mohu Leaf 50 antenna (a Lifehacker favorite) and a Hauppauge Digital TV TV Tuner for $100. Buying both separately on Amazon would set you back over $120, so this Labor Day deal from Microsoft is a great value for cord cutters. [Live TV Bundle for Xbox One, $99]
All Labor Day weekend, Microsoft is offering up your choice of Xbox One bundle, plus a copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity, and an extra game of your choice. It’s not uncommon to see Xbox One bundles being sold with two extra games, but this is the first time we’ve seen such a large selection of bundles. [Xbox One Labor Day Sale]
Need to get caught up on Star Wars before The Force Awakens? Both trilogies are on sale on Blu-ray for $35 each, today on Amazon.
For a few bucks more, you can opt for Mpow’s Armor speaker instead. It will only play for 10 hours on a charge, but it actually includes a built-in 1,000mAh backup battery (separate from the one that powers the speaker itself) that you can use to top off your phone. Granted, that’s not a ton of extra juice, but it could come in handy on a camping trip. [Mpow Armor Bluetooth Speaker with 1000mAh back-up power supply, $26 with code 28G5CZKI]
