PCs continue their slow and steady decline says IDC

first_img Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. 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). 8 Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Comments An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

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.

Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR CNET may get a commission from retail offers. $999 Computers Gadgets Tablets Computer Accessories,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. 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. $6 at Tidal Read the AirPods review Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves.

Rumored Yahoo Might Launch Its Own YouTube Allegedly Snatching Up Viral YouTube

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global April 1, 2014 4 min read If the rumors about Facebook and Amazon possibly stepping up efforts in the ad-supported online video game are more than just rumors, Yahoo might be biting off a bigger battle than it can chew. Still, as Re/code’s headline hinted, the unflappable and always perfectly coiffed Mayer still looks ready for her closeup. Related: Why You Should Be on Google+ Yahoo came first, but Google has YouTube.And, rumor has it, Yahoo has a hankering for its own version of YouTube, or at least something like it. So much so that the struggling Sunnyvale, Calif.-based early internet mammoth is allegedly “cherry-picking” viral YouTube stars away from the world’s most popular video service — particularly ones who aren’t satisfied with the notoriously skimpy payouts they reportedly receive. According to Re/code, Yahoo “hopes to launch” a strategy “in the next few months” to compete with arch rival Google’s video cash cow. (Maybe they’ll call their attempt YahToobe? Nah, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue right, does it?)Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal yesterday reported that Yahoo is in talks to acquire Atlanta-based online video syndication company News Distribution Network (NDN) for approximately $300 to $400 million, adding yet more fuel to rumors swirling around Yahoo’s fight for a bigger slice of the ad-supported online video pie.Related: Your Customers Are Likely More Engaged on YouTube Than on Facebook or TwitterWe asked a Yahoo spokesperson if both of the rumors are true — Yahoo’s alleged YouTube star poaching and a the alleged NDN deal — to which she simply responded both times, “We don’t comment on rumors or speculation.”It’s no shocker that Yahoo president and CEO Marissa Mayer is reportedly eyeing snagging traffic from YouTube. What doesn’t add up is that Google’s aggressive Employee No. 20 didn’t gun for the holy grail of online video earlier. YouTube is the second most visited website on the internet, second only to Google, of course, and it rakes in more than 1 billion unique users every month.A growing thirst for network contentWalter Mossberg’s new indie tech news site, which is a CNBC partner, also reported Yahoo has also recently been in touch with “some of the big networks now on the giant online video service.”Yahoo apparently has quite an appetite for major broadcast network content. Last year the company inked a deal with Broadway Video to exclusively stream the complete 38-year Saturday Night Live catalogue. The catalogue is available through Yahoo’s fledgling video-sharing offering Yahoo Screen, though it’s not nearly as lucrative as expected.Related: Young Millionaire: Inside the Mind of Yahoo’s Teen Sensation Nick D’AloisioAlso almost a year ago, Mayer attempted to land a $300 million majority stake in French video-sharing site DailyMotion, often dubbed “the YouTube of France.” It was a no-go. The French government squashed the deal. Yahoo also tried and failed to scoop up Hulu for $800 million.But Mayer doesn’t take well to defeat and she’s apparently not throwing in the towel in the battle for online video viewers and, more importantly, ad revenue, not without a fight. Not if the new face of Yahoo, veteran TV anchor Katie Couric can help it.    More money and better exposure = A tough carrot not to biteRe/code revealed that Yahoo is allegedly enticing big-draw YouTube-ers by dangling sweeter “economics” and better brand exposure as bait:“The come-on? Yahoo executives have told video makers and owners that the company can offer them better economics than they’re getting on YouTube, either by improving the ad revenue or by offering guaranteed ad rates for their videos.In addition, Yahoo has offered extensive marketing, even on its home page, as well as allowing video producers the ability to sell advertising along with Yahoo’s sales force.” Register Now »last_img read more

The PR2,News18 We were hoping that the anguish of the judges as reflected in their statements to the press would be addressed by the Chief Justice and the Chief Justice in response would set his house in order More than three months have passed Nothing has changed Recent communications of two senior judges to the Chief Justice reveal that the Chief Justice has not asserted the independence of the judiciary in the face of interference by the executive When the judges of the Supreme Court themselves believe that the judiciary’s independence is under threat and democracy in peril alluding to the functioning of the office of the Chief Justice of India should the nation stand still and do nothing Should the people of this country allow the institution to diminish and not protect it both from within and without That is what we were confronted with when contemplating action to ensure the independence of the institution that protects the rights of citizens and is the arbiter of the fate of the democracy we cherish The choice was not easy because either way the repercussions are serious The Constitution allows only one recourse to remedy the situation Since there is no other way to protect the institution except to move an impeachment motion we members of the Rajya Sabha do so with a heavy heart We took upon ourselves to move the impeachment motion in the background set out above but on the basis of charges of acts of misbehaviour that are set out in the impeachment motion We do not wish to repeat those charges here in detail We only wish to state that any one occupying the office of the Chief Justice of India must be judged on the basis of the highest standards of integrity The charges as stated suggest conduct unbecoming of a person holding the office of the Chief Justice of India The first charge relates to the conspiracy to pay illegal gratification by persons in relation to the Prasad Education Trust case and the manner in which the case was dealt with by the ChiefJustice It is on record that the CBI has registered an FIR There are several recorded conversations between middlemen including a retired judge of the Orissa High Court excerpts of transcripts of which are set out in the articles of charge References to the Chief Justice by innuendo in these conversations are evident The denial of permission to the CBI to register an FIR against Justice Narayan Shukla of the Allahabad High Court when the CBI shared incriminating information with the Chief Justice was itself an act of misbehaviour All this requires a thorough investigation The second char relates to the Chief Justice having dealt on the administrative as well as on the judicial side with a writ petition which sought an investigation into the matter of Prasad Education Trust in which he too was likely to fall within the scope of investigation The practice in the Supreme Court is that when the Chief Justice is in a Constitution Bench and matters are to be listed requests for listing are made before the first puisne judge This is an age-old practice On 9 November 2017 when a writ petition was mentioned before Justice Chelameswar at 1030 am since the Chief Justice was sitting in a Constitution Bench the same was directed to be listed later the same day When the matter was taken up a note dated 6 November 2017 was placed before the judges hearing the matter by an official of the Registry This is the basis of the third charge alleging that the note of 6 November brought to the attention of Justice Chelameswar on 9 November as the matter was taken up was antedated The charge of antedating is by all accounts a very serious charge The fourth charge relates to the Chief Justice having acquired land when he was an advocate by giving an affidavit which was found to be false Further despite the orders of the ADM cancelling the allotment in 1985 the Chief Justice surrendered the land only in 2012 after he was elevated to the Supreme Court The fifth charge relates to the abuse of exercise of power by the Chief Justice in choosing to send sensitive matters to particular benches by misusing his authority as Master of the Roster with the likely intent to influence the outcome As representatives of the people we are entitled to hold the Chief Justice accountable just as we are accountable to the people The majesty of the law is more important than the majesty of any office We hope that a thorough enquiry will be held so that truth alone triumphs Democracy can thrive only when our judiciary stands firm independent of the executive and discharges its constitutional functions honestly fearlessly and with an even hand Dhaka: A Myanmar minister will tour camps for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh an official said on Wednesday the first such visit since Myanmar’s army drove nearly 700000 members of the Muslim minority over the border Bangladesh’s foreign ministry confirmed that Myanmar’s social welfare relief and resettlement minister Win Myat Aye would visit the congested camps which are home to nearly one million Rohingya refugees in total Representational image AP "His programme has not been fixed yet" Tareque Muhammad a director-general at the foreign ministry told AFP The visit is slated for 11 or 12 April US and UN officials say the military crackdown which began last August in the mainly Buddhist nation purportedly to flush out guerrillas amounted to the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya Another Bangladeshi official told AFP it would be the first visit by a Myanmar minister to the camps which have sheltered Rohingya refugees since the early 1990s for more than a decade Win Myat Aye is the deputy head of a task force led by Aung San Suu Kyi on the crisis in Rakhine state and a top official overseeing a stalled agreement with Bangladesh to repatriate some 750000 refugees Myanmar has approved several hundred Rohingya from a list of thousands to return to their homeland but not a single one has yet crossed backMeanwhile Myanmar authorities are accused of bulldozing Rohingya villages in Rakhine and seeking to erase evidence at sites where their troops are accused of atrocities Myanmar has denied the charge but blocked investigators from visiting an area where thousands of Rohingya long persecuted in the country are believed to have been killed Even before the latest influx began last August the camps in southeast Bangladesh were home to roughly 300000 Rohingya Muslims who fled previous waves of violence Rohingya community leaders in the camps said they would welcome the opportunity to raise their concerns about returning to Rakhine with the visiting Myanmar official "We would like to meet face-to-face with the minister" Mohibullah told AFP Many of the displaced Muslims have rejected the prospect of returning fearing a repeat of the persecution that has forced them off their lands for generations Refugees demand recognition as a minority access to health and education and an assurance they can return to their ancestral villages rather than being shunted into resettlement camps in Rakhine For shoppers.
