At first you would think Sony or Microsoft may be to blame, but no, it’s Xiaomi. Following the release of the latest Black Shark gaming phone earlier this year, Xiaomi’s new Gamepad 2.0 is comprised of two controllers that slide onto the sides of the Black Shark. The controllers pair using Bluetooth, offer a joystick and D-pad on the left, a touchpad and ABXY buttons on the right, and triggers on the top of both. expand full story

expiredTravel up to 15.5 MPH for nearly 20 miles on Xiaomi’s electric scooter from $375 (Reg. $480)

Newegg offers the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter for $399.99, but those with MasterPass can use code MPGM18 at checkout to knock the price down to $374.99 shipped. Amazon has it listed for $480 right now and the MasterPass discount beats the all-time low there. If you have shorter distances to cover at college, this is a great alternative to a bike. The battery will last up to 18.6 miles on one charge, and you can travel at up to 15.5 miles per hour. Rated 3.8/5 stars.

If $375 is too rich for your blood, a slightly less capable Swagtron Scooter, reviewed on Electrek, is $271 shipped

Xiaomi has done it again. Today the company announced an upgrade to its Mi Band. Similar to its predecessor, the Mi Band 2, the Mi Band 3 is a fitness tracker packed with lots of features at a very affordable price.
