iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7: T-Mobile

Forget the iPhone X and Google's shiny new Pixel 2 for a second, because this is the best deal I can remember seeing on the still-great iPhone 7. T-Mobile is selling certified refurbished 32GB iPhone 7 devices for just $366 right now.

That's an objectively small amount of money to spend on a phone that is still highly capable. With iOS 11 loaded up, you're unlikely to notice many differences between the 7 and a new iPhone 8, but you sure as hell will notice the spare $400 in your pocket.

Amazon trialing new delivery system that makes FedEx and UPS obsolete

Amazon Prime Delivery

Amazon is testing a new delivery option for third-party sellers, which would increase Amazon's role in the logistics chain at the expense of UPS and FedEx, its long-time shipping partners. The news comes courtesy of a Bloomberg report, and marks a big step up in where Amazon wants to position itself between buyers and sellers.

The report says that Amazon is trialing a new delivery service, called Seller Flex, with merchants on the West Coast. It involves Amazon picking up products from third-party sellers and shipping them to customers, rather than having third-party sellers handle the entire shipping process themselves.

How to check out Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL before anyone else

Google Pixel 2 preorder date

The Google Pixel 2 is finally official, following weeks of leaks and rumors. You might think you already know everything there is to know about Google's latest phone, but there's no real alternative to holding it in your hand.

Luckily, there's a way to do that before anyone else. Google has announced two pop-up stores opening in New York and LA, which will have the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and all of Google's other new hardware, available for you to play with just as soon as it goes on sale.

T-Mobile’s trolling of Verizon just hit a new level

Google Pixel 2 T-Mobile vs Verizon

Google's new Pixel 2 is finally official, and just like last year, it's a Verizon exclusive. But boring things like exclusive distribution contracts aren't going to stop an opportunity for a good troll for T-Mobile. That's why it's offering a killer launch deal on the Pixel, despite not even selling the phone.

If you go out and buy a Pixel on your own dime and bring it to T-Mobile, the carrier will pay you half of the phone's cost upfront. There's a few terms and conditions attached, but here's the important part: T-Mobile has a way better offer than Verizon on the Pixel 2, a phone that's a Verizon exclusive and that T-Mobile doesn't even sell. That's some next-level trolling right there.
