Not a MacBook person? The Lenovo Yoga C930 is a slick 2-in-1 on sale for up to $650 off

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:58 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Don't settle for anything less than you deserve, guys.

We won't get into that person that doesn't deserve a text back from you, but we will scold you for putting up with that decrepit six-year-old laptop that makes work harder rather than easier.

It's time for a glow up: The Lenovo Yoga line has some of the best 2-in-1 laptops on the market right now, and you can snag the 13.9-inch Yoga C930 for as low as $1,049.99. The least you'll save is $350, and savings just go up from there.

Lenovo was out here experimenting with convertible laptops way before Dell or HP. The Ideapad and Yoga lines have been through a lot of tweaking in the past seven years, and the Yoga C930 is essentially the model that got to benefit from all that trial and error. Read more...

Apple needs Qualcomm to make a 5G iPhone anytime soon, experts say

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:52 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Years of squabbling between two giant tech companies came to an end on Tuesday, as Apple and Qualcomm settled their legal disputes globally. This is likely a good thing for consumers because it means Apple may now be able to get a 5G iPhone out the door in a somewhat timely manner.

According to a report from Bloomberg, working with Qualcomm was probably the only way for Apple to embrace the new wireless high-speed standard in the near future.

Put simply, Qualcomm has resources that Apple and any other company Apple could hire to make 5G modems do not. Apple had intended to work with Intel on making a 5G iPhone until the legal settlement, but even then, Intel seemingly couldn't compete with Qualcomm's expertise and resources in the 5G space.

Philips Sonicare toothbrush is $20 off on Amazon

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:47 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Taking care of your pearly whites should always be a priority. Your smile is something you should own and be proud of — so show it some love by making sure you have the right toothbrush. Philips Sonicare is one of the most popular brands when it comes to toothcare, and you can get one of their chomper-cleaning tools on sale right now.

The Philips Sonicare 4100 toothbrush is $20 off on Amazon — with a focus on plaque-control, this toothbrush will have you wanting to show off your smile wherever you go. 

The Philips Sonicare 4100 removes up to seven times more plaque than manual toothbrushes do — and it’s much easier to use. The brush’s pressure sensor protects your gums from damage caused by excess scrubbing (say goodbye to gingivitis), and the automatic smart timer alerts you when the recommended two minutes of cleaning are up. Its battery life can last up to two whole weeks (the charger is included in the package), and the Sonicare’s Brush Sync system reminds you when it’s time to replace your old brush head.  Read more...

People are having a blast with 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's stage builder

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:40 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

People are going wild with the new stage builder in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which was added to the game in the free version 3.0.0 update Wednesday.

Smash players immediately jumped into the stage builder and have been sharing their custom creations online, some of them being clever and impressively detailed battle arenas, others being more comical than practical. And, of course, it was only a matter of time before people started making lewd stages.

Perhaps the most clever/goofy/weird stage that's come out of it so far is a stage called "spicy meatball," which contains a gigantic Mario that swallows players and poops them out with such force that they die. Read more...

Get an Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet for just $100

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:35 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

When people think of tablets, iPads are often what come to mind. But you don’t have to drop a couple hundred to get a reliable tablet capable of the functions you want. Amazon’s Fire HD 10 is already significantly cheaper than an iPad, and now it’s $50 off, making it even more affordable.

Obviously you’re not going to get a ton of great features with a tablet this cheap, but the Fire HD 10 has a 10.1-inch 1080p Full HD display, up to 1.8 GHZ quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM, and up to 10 hours of battery life.

As with other Amazon smart devices, the tablet has Alexa capabilities, allowing you to pause videos, play music, open apps, display the weather, and more, just with your voice. Plus, if you’re a Prime member, you get unlimited access to more than a thousand books and magazines, millions of songs, and thousands of movies and TV episodes included in the subscription.

'Jeopardy!' champion breaks single-game winnings record, takes home $131,127

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:25 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

If you're a Jeopardy! fan you've no doubt heard the name James Holzhauer, who cleaned house by earning $131,127 in a single game on Wednesday. 

This was Holzhauer's tenth straight win on the game show, and his fourth time breaking the record for most money earned on the show in a single night. This time, he broke his own record of $110,914, and has now earned a grand total of $697,787 so far, with no sign of stopping any time soon. 

Holzhauer now holds four of the top five spots in the list of top earnings in a single show. The only other man on that list is Roger Craig in fifth place. 

Holzhauer is a professional sports gambler, which explains his strategic approach to choosing questions worth more money first and larger than average bets on Daily Doubles.  Read more...

Trump’s 'Game of Thrones' response to the Mueller report is his worst meme yet

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:24 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

As the world waits for the release of the Mueller report, Donald Trump has tweeted perhaps his most nonsensical meme yet.

Shortly after Attorney General William Barr's press conference, but before the public has even had a chance to read the redacted report, President Trump tweeted another Game of Thrones meme of himself.

"No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats — GAME OVER," the image of him walking into a bunch of fog, read.

pic.twitter.com/222atp7wuB

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2019

Trump's past tweets, and the classic Game of Thrones font he used seem to suggest this is a reference to the popular HBO show. But aside from being a wildly unprofessional tweet from a president, the meme makes absolutely no sense. Read more...

8 of the best laptops for business in the UK: See why the MacBook Pro and Lenovo ThinkPad top our list

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:15 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

While laptops are wonderful for watching movies and TV shows, sometimes you just need a dedicated machine for getting the job done with no distractions. A great laptop for business needs to be versatile for an assortment of daily tasks, including word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and web research. 

In the business world, "the dog ate my homework" is not a good excuse. Business laptops need to be light enough to easily take to meetings and conferences across the country (or around the world), while also performing under pressure and maintaining battery life. The last thing you want is your laptop dying in the middle of an important presentation or meeting.  Read more...

Pre-order the Xbox One S all-digital edition console for under £200

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:15 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

You may have heard the news earlier this year about an all-digital Xbox One S. Well, Microsoft has now taken the next step and officially unveiled the new console, and you can pre-order it for under £200 from Amazon.

The Xbox One S all-digital edition console is due to be released on May 7. You can ensure that you are one of the first to get your hands on the new device by pre-ordering for £199.99. If you order now and the Amazon price decreases between the time you place your order and the release date, you'll be charged the lowest price. So you are guaranteed the best deal.

The digital Xbox One S comes with a wireless controller, a one-month Xbox Live Gold subscription, and download codes for Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, and Sea of Thieves. The new console is identical to the regular Xbox One S except it doesn't have a disc drive. This means you won't be able to play game discs, but everything is downloadable nowadays anyway.  Read more...

Rod Rosenstein stares blankly into the distance at Mueller report press conference

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:15 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Attorney general William Barr held a press conference Thursday morning to discuss the long-awaited Mueller report, a move which has been criticized by Democrats as unnecessary and "inappropriate." Next to him stood deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who spent most of the conference staring intensely into the middle distance.

Remember when Chris Christie stood next to Trump during a rally and looked like he'd just woken up on a submarine to hell? This was kind of like that. Several people made "Sound of Silence" jokes.

Apple's new iPhones will have a 12-megapixel selfie camera, report claims

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:10 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Apple's new iPhone models, likely coming out this fall, will get an improved selfie camera, and two new models will get a triple camera with a super-wide lens, a new report claims. 

The news is courtesy of reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), and while it mostly rehashes his report from early April, it does mention a few new details. 

Kuo claims that the 6.5-inch OLED and the 5.8-inch OLED iPhones — corresponding to the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XS — will get the triple camera, while the 6.1-inch LCD model (corresponding to the iPhone XR) will be upgraded to a dual camera.  Read more...

#WhatsMyName movement is deadly reminder of Uber, Lyft safety shortcomings

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 07:00 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

"What's my name?"

That's the question the family of Samantha Josephson is making sure everyone asks after getting into a ride-share car. 

Josephson, 21, was killed last month after getting into what she thought was the Uber she had ordered in downtown Columbia, South Carolina, where she went to college. Her accused killer impersonated an Uber driver. 

Now the #WhatsMyName hashtag is spreading — with the help of her family — to make sure more riders safely get home. A website, a growing social presence, and media appearances are all efforts to educate passengers on how to find the correct Uber or Lyft after ordering a car through an app.  Read more...

'Sesame Street' just gave us the only 'Game of Thrones' ending we want

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 06:54 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Do you ever pause amidst the bloody carnage of Game of Thrones and think: Why can't these people just get along?

Well, so does Elmo from Sesame Street, and he's done with all this fighting and incest nonsense. In a magical crossover spot from Game of Thrones and Sesame Street, Elmo shows up in King's Landing to mediate squabbling Lannister siblings Cersei and Tyrion, and...it works.

The video is part of Sesame Workshop's "Respect Brings Us Together" campaign, which includes videos with Common and a trip to Westworld

You've gotta wonder how far a little respect would go in Westeros, where siblings speak openly about their dreams to murder each other (and might even follow through). If they can't get along, they can at least try! Read more...

Redaction memes are helping us cope with our Mueller anxiety

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 06:49 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

At long last, the day has come. A copy of the Mueller report is expected to be released to the general public shortly, and while the American people wait they've decided to pass the time by making comfort memes.

Attorney General William Barr is set to release some 400-pages of findings from Mueller's Special Counsel investigation into Donald Trump and his administration's involvement with Russia, but there's a catch: parts of the report will be redacted.

The report is said to be "lightly redacted," but having seen the massive redacted portions in the Special Counsel's sentencing memo on Michael Flynn last year, people are rightfully skeptical. As they wonder whether or not the report will be presented with an absurd amount of blacked out text, people are preparing for a potential let down with some jokes. Read more...

The Carolina Panthers used video games to announce their 2019 schedule

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 06:44 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

The NFL's Carolina Panthers hit a sweet spot for fans on Wednesday night as they rolled out their 2019 schedule with the perfect homage to our favorite video games.

There's a lot packed in here for 17 weeks of football (16 games and one off week) but it's incredibly entertaining nonetheless: Skate or Die, Pitfall, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, NBA Jam, Oregon Trail, and Goldeneye all make appearances, scratching that nostalgia itch. But there are a few more recent games, too, including Words With Friends and Pokémon Go.

The NFL has made a big to-do in recent years in releasing the official schedule for the upcoming season and each team put out their own spin on a schedule release video, like the Los Angeles Chargers who purposely used stock footage to poke fun at some of their opponents.  Read more...

The 6 best cases for your iPhone X in the UK

The iPhone X is one of Apple's most advanced and most popular smartphones ever. It's a technological marvel inside and out. It's also extremely slippery and you should definitely get a case (even if it's a cheap one) to protect your device.

The Good
Tough • Protects from dust and lint
The Bad
Bulk • Skinny jeans need not apply
The Bottom Line
The Defense Series Case from OtterBox can take some abuse, but you will lose some pocketability in the process.

1. OtterBox Defender

OtterBox cases are legendary for their ability to take serious abuse and that remains unchanged for the iPhone X.
OtterBox cases are legendary for their ability to take serious abuse and that remains unchanged for the iPhone X. 
The Defender case is bulky, which means you lose some pocketability (sucks if you wear skinny jeans), but it'll protect your iPhone X from virtually all kinds of impact, dust, and lint. 
The only downside to Otterbox's iPhone X case is it doesn't shield the screen, which is odd because the Defender cases for other models like the iPhone 8 do. A screen protector will cost you extra, but at least the body is covered up.

Jason Momoa posts video of himself shaving off his beard and RIP Khal Drogo

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 04:19 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

It's hard to picture Jason Momoa without his signature beard. That's because it's been such a major part of the aesthetics of some of his most notable roles, like Khal Drogo and Aquaman.

But those days are gone. Momoa has kissed goodbye to his facial fuzz (for the first time since 2012, he says). And he filmed himself shaving it off. 

"Goodbye Drogo, goodbye Arthur Curry, goodbye Declan," said Momoa as he sheared clumps of hair off his face. 

In the video, Momoa says the reason he's decided to part ways with his beard is because he wants to raise awareness of the destructive impact of plastics on the environment. He goes on to advocate aluminium recycling. Read more...

Nintendo in VR? We chatted about the road to Labo VR Kit with its creator.

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 03:00 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Nintendo has been eyeing virtual reality for longer than you realize.

You wouldn't have known it back in Jan. 2018 when the first cardboard gaming kit was announced, but work was happening behind the scenes. It was far enough along even then to make a cameo appearance in that first reveal.

"When we first came up with the concept of Labo, we realized that we can incorporate VR experiences into it," Labo Director and Software Lead Tsubasa Sakaguchi said through a translator during a recent interview.

"[It] was part of the theme from the earlier stages. As you can see from the release announcement video, the VR Toy-Cons are actually included in that announcement video." Read more...

Linda Cardellini awkwardly describes getting cut from 'Family Guy' in front of Seth MacFarlane

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 02:50 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

When you're an actor, not getting an audition must be tough. But surely getting the audition only to be casually replaced after you've already recorded the show must be a lot worse.

Just ask Linda Cardellini. She appeared on The Late Late Show on Wednesday and recounted how that exact scenario happened to her on Family Guy — and she told the story in front of Seth MacFarlane.

"I did a voice on it, and I told everybody, like, 'tune in and watch', and then when I watched it I was replaced!" she said.

MacFarlane's response? "In my defence, I have no recollection of anything past this morning." Read more...

Anyone who follows Chrissy Teigen on Twitter will know that she always speaks her mind — and she's definitely not afraid to hit back at people who attack her.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, Fox News host Laura Ingraham found this out first hand.

The top story on Fox's 10 o'clock hour is Laura Ingraham raging about @chrissyteigen being named to Times top 100 most influential list. Laura is mad that Mrs. Tiegen said a naughty word pic.twitter.com/BHItYHCoqH

Travel gadgets are something we cover often. We’ve broken down the best coffee mugs to take on your morning commute, gotten tech-savvy with the most high tech smart luggage sets, and scoured the web for the one item we pretty much always forget when journeying into foreign lands: Travel adapters.

Master the software used by some of the world's best DJs for only $29

Posted: 18 Apr 2019 02:00 AM PDT

If Idris Elba (or DJ Big Driis) can perform a two-hour set at Coachella despite his grueling acting career, then so can you. You don't even have to be crowned as the Sexiest Man Alive to pursue DJ-ing. All you need is a passion for creating music magic and a feature-rich digital audio workstation (DAW) to start working the turntables.

For the world's highest-paid DJs like Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and Steve Aoki, and genius producers like Kendrick Lamar and Chris Martin, their DAW of choice is Apple's very own Logic Pro.

Remember when your jaw dropped as you watched Calvin Harris demo how he mixed the banger that is "Slide"? At the center of his production workflow was yup, you named it: Logic Pro. He used the software to cut, combine, and edit a variety of audio elements. But it's easier seen than done. Ogling at a renowned musician produce hits like it's no big deal may make you feel that you can pull it off yourself at first try, but you still need expert-led instruction if you have hopes of breaking into the Billboard Hot 100.  Read more...
