The best Cyber Monday deals

With another Black Friday behind us, the best way for you to save on anything tech-related is with the Cyber Monday deals that are blanketing the internet today. We’ve followed all the best deals for weeks now, but now we’re focused on the last gasp of holiday savings with this collection below.

If all the recent phone releases have made it hard to choose your upgrade, now’s the time to pick one. T-Mobile is selling the 64GB version of what we think is the best phone you can buy right now — the iPhone 6 — off-contract for $ 649. Not a fan of Apple? The best iPhone competitor around is the newest version of the Moto X, and Motorola is selling it today for $ 150 off. For those looking to upgrade their desktop setup, Microsoft cut the price…

Best Buy puts LG G Watch on sale for just $79 in time for Cyber Monday

If you’re looking to get your hands on Android Wear for as cheap as possible, we might have a deal for you. Best Buy is selling the LG G Watch, one of the very first Android Wear devices, for $ 79 as part of its Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions. That’s even better than Google’s sale on the watch, and it’s $ 150 off the device’s list price. Now, we don’t recommend the G Watch — it’s already been superseded by a newer model and it’s been left in the dust by the competition — but it’d definitely a bargain-basement price. It looks like it’s sold out online, but you might be able to find it at a local Best Buy near you.

Microsoft reportedly announcing ‘Minecraft’ acquisition on Monday

Reports of Microsoft’s plans to acquire Mojang, creator of the Minecraft video game franchise, surfaced earlier this week, shortly after Apple’s iPhone 6 event. Reuters now reports that the surprise deal is said to be worth $ 2.5 billion, and Microsoft will announce the acquisition on Monday. While there are a number of reasons Microsoft might want to secure the rights to Minecraft, some analysts and developers believe it could be related to Windows Phone.

The rise and fall and rise of virtual reality: coming Monday

If you’re one of the lucky few to have entered into the world of the Oculus Rift, it’s likely you were unfazed by Facebook scooping up the young company for $ 2 billion earlier this year. To many, Palmer Luckey, Oculus’ precocious leader, has taken this utopian technology into the next phase of its multivalent history. Infinitely curious about its future, we at The Verge also wanted to properly investigate its past. Coming Monday is our massive investigation into virtual reality’s rise and fall — and rise. Stay tuned!

The best of Cyber Monday

It may have been invented as a cynical marketing move to force people to spend more money, but Cyber Monday has the edge on Black Friday by not asking you to actually leave the house. Many retailers this year have decided to roll their Black Friday deals on over the weekend until today; others have introduced some reasonable discounts on electronics and other big box goods.

Keys to the city: NYC mayoral candidates debate tech policy on Monday with Nilay Patel as moderator

Dsc_2317_large

New York’s Mayor Bloomberg has placed heavy emphasis on tech policy during his term: He’s hired the city’s first chief digital officer, pushed for more public Wi-Fi, and partnered with Cornell to build a major research center and startup community. That’s made New York second only to Silicon Valley in terms of tech industry growth, and the next mayor will have to keep it up.

That’s why Coalition for Queens is holding the Mayoral Candidates Tech Policy forum on Monday. I’ll be moderating along with Anjali Athavaley of the Wall Street Journal, and we plan to ask the candidates about their positions on a wide range of tech-related policy issues from tech jobs and startup companies to STEM education, infrastructure development, data access,…

Did Apple conspire to fix ebook prices? The DOJ takes Cupertino to court on Monday

Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services

Propelled by the public’s embrace of the Kindle, Amazon was running away with the burgeoning ebook market by the end of 2009. The steep discounts it offered, which were often below wholesale cost, were also a big part of why the company could boast more than 90 percent market share.

To the chagrin of competitors and book publishers, Amazon was developing monopoly control of the ebook market. The retailer could offer the total package: the top e-reader, the most popular online book store, and the best prices. Amazon’s strategy was also a proven winner. It was nearly identical to the one Apple employed earlier in the decade with the iPod and iTunes store when it…
