Google Home Mini on Sale

The Google Home Mini is on sale for $39.99 until July 12, 2018 at The Source (née Radio Shack). I picked up an extra one, for Oliver’s room, to allow him to listen to music at bedtime.

It replaces a complex system involving his MacBook Air, an old Moto G and a Bluetooth speaker, a system that was prone to failure and a nightly source of angst for both of us.

If you’re okay with the “allow Google to listen to everything I say and do,” the Home Mini is a very capable device, with surprisingly good sound for such a tiny speaker.
