Google Home Hub

· · · Internet of Things

Bought the Google Home Hub during Black Friday as Google is having US$50 off the retail price of US$149.

I did not get the Google Home Hub from Google US Store as the chances of my order going through is close to zero. Similar to the Google Home Mini that I got for Black Friday last year, I got it directly from B&H Photo Video. They have the same promotion as Google US Store.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign where the Innergie 60C USB-C raised a total of US$312,227 from 2,566 backers, it is now ready for sale on Amazon.

I received my Innergie 60C USB-C seven months ago as I have backed the Kickstarter project, but Innergie is kind enough to send me another one which is the retail packaging being sold on Amazon.

Sonos One

Before 2017, it has always been cheaper to get a Sonos PLAY:1 or Sonos One from Amazon, ship it to Singapore, and it is still cheaper than getting it in Singapore. That is how I got my Sonos PLAY:1.

Things have changed after that, and the prices for Sonos products in Singapore is almost the same as Amazon (sometimes even cheaper). And it comes with a warranty.
