[Deal Alert] Samsung 64GB and 128GB USB-C flash drives just $19.99 and $39.99 on Amazon ($10-12 off)

USB-C is the future, but as we’re all slowly switching to the updated port, the change isn’t without its inconveniences. Chief among them: all your old stuff isn’t gonna work without dongles and adapters.

Why not just use it as an excuse to upgrade? That old 2GB drive you’ve been hanging onto isn’t enough space anyway, and Amazon’s just dropped the price on Samsung’s 64GB ($ 19.99) and 128GB ($ 39.99) USB-C flash drives, bringing each to an all-time low. 

Allegedly these drives are USB 3.1, offering speeds of up to 150MB/s.

Google Maps now lets you create and share lists of places from your desktop or laptop

Google Maps has gotten a lot more social this year. Earlier in 2017, location sharing was enabled for the masses. Google also launched a feature allowing users to create and share lists of places. However, only Android and iOS users were able to set up these lists, and web-based Google Maps users were limited to just seeing them.
