At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Read DJI Osmo Action preview Boost Mobile Comments Android 10 (Android Q) Google Play Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Sarah Tew/CNET 1:33 $60 at Best Buy $299 at Amazon Free Echo Dot with an Insignia or Toshiba TV (save $50) Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

Omar Marques/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images Google will soon let people literally part with their cash to pay for Android apps, a report said.The search giant will launch “pending transactions” to give you more payment options, according to TechCrunch.”This is a new class of delayed form of payment – like cash, bank transfer and direct debit,”  Aurash Mahbod, the Director of Engineering responsible for the Play Store and Games on Google Play, told the site at Google’s I/O Developer conference on Wednesday. $999 Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast.

Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Fortnite should stop letting players climb electric poles in game power company

first_imgYes, folks, it’s true: Fortnite is a fantasy realm, with fantasy rules. Please be careful out in the real world. Epic Games A round of Fortnite can have a lot going on: wild characters, loot to snatch, colorful skins to try on and supplies to gather to build protection against other players. The ultimate goal? Be the last one standing. The game’s been out three short years and it’s held on to a pretty solid fanbase.Now a power company in Israel wants Fortnite to make some changes to its game. Not to the guns or the ability to shoot other characters or steal dance moves, but to the players’ ability to climb utility poles. According to a Wednesday report by Reuters, Israel Electricity Corp. sent a letter to the game’s makers, asking that they no longer let Fortnite players scale utility poles, because it could encourage dangerous real-world behavior. In the Monday letter, obtained by Reuters, Israel Electricity said kids climbing utility poles is a real problem that it’s been trying to stop for many years. The power company said Fortnite is responsible for the safety of its players. In case you’re wondering, it’s no joke: Climbing utility poles and the like can kill you.Neither the Israel Electricity nor Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, immediately responded to requests for comment.  Fortnite’s Epic spectacular at E3 2019 Tags Comments Gaming Video Games 6:20 Now playing: Watch this:center_img 5 16 Photos Share your voice Fortnite How Fortnite, AR and YouTube influence toyslast_img read more

Dancing for a world celebration

first_img‘Dancing is the poetry of the foot’ as per John Dryden’s perspective of the orb of dance, that has been the key philosophy and inspiration for India’s eminent danseuse Geeta Chandran and her lovechild – Natya Vriksha – the perfect platform for her abundant, dedicated passion and ability to nurture and harness talent, that firmly establish Indian dance traditions. On the occasion of the 9th World Dance Day Chandran celebrated the charming nuances of Indian dance traditions, paying homage to the dance community with a showcase of several avtaars at the India International Centre Auditorium. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and India International Centre, with additional support from the Sangeet Natak Akademi, NTPC and UNESCO, Natya Vriksha’s World Dance Day 2013 celebration offered the capital’s cultural aficionados, an assured opportunity for enjoying Geeta Chandran’s ‘Young Dancers’ Festival’ – a successful endeavour to create new spaces for the contemporary classical dancer, forming new frontiers of classical art, to reach out to new, young, audiences, believing and asserting that dance must be linked to life at the grass root level and that artists must make a positive difference to real living.Indeed, Geeta Chandran’s World Dance Day calendar resonates in spirit –  Martha Graham’s sensibility that ‘Dancers are the messengers of the gods’.last_img read more
