Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

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. Amazon 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. HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) TVs Speakers Mobile Accessories Cameras Laptops Automobiles Smart Speakers & Displays 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. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale.

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.

Share your voice Tags Gotta go fast 21 Photos TV and Movies Comments This Sonic should look familiar to fans of the TV show. Video screenshot by Amanda Kooser/CNET The trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie emerged from the depths of fan nightmares in May, prompting an epic backlash over the character design — especially over his very human-like teeth. The movie’s creators pledge to re-make Sonic, but animator Artur Baranov is one step ahead with a do-over of the trailer. Baranov posted his reworked trailer this week. He had the bright idea to replace the weird-legged movie Sonic with a version inspired by the cartoon television show Sonic from the ’90s. This is closer to how the speedy hedgehog appears in the Sega video games.This new vision for Sonic looks a lot less like a person in pajamas and more like a fantasy character, complete with skinny legs and arms. There’s a slight hint of white in his mouth, but not a creepy tooth in sight. 2 Summer movie preview: Aladdin, Spider-Man, Tarantino and more Director Jeff Fowler announced that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date would be pushed from November to Feb. 14, 2020, to give the filmmakers more time to rework Sonic. Will the new Sonic look more like Baranov’s version or will we get a completely different hedgehog? It can only better from here. Sonic the Hedgehog movie delayed ‘to make Sonic just right’ Sonic the Hedgehog director promises ‘changes’ after the internet went insane
The 17th session of the 10th parliament will continue until 14 September next.The sitting of the house began at 5:25pm with speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair. Earlier, the business advisory committee of the house sat at a meeting at 4pm with the speaker in the chair to fix the duration and businesses of the session. A five-member panel of chairmen was nominated by the speaker for the 17th session of the 10th parliament. Members of the panel are Lt Col (retd) Muhammad Faruk Khan (Gopalganj-1), Motahar Hossain (Lalmonirhat-1), Suhrab Uddin (Kishoreganj-2), Fakhrul Imam (Mymensingh-8) and Mahjabeen Khaled (Women Seat-18). The speaker announced their names at the beginning of the day’s business. They will conduct the proceedings of parliament in chronological order in the absence of the Speaker and the deputy speaker.President Abdul Hamid on 22 August last called the 17th session of the 10th parliament exercising the power bestowed upon him as per Article 72 (1) of the Constitution. On 13 July last, the 16th session (4th budget session of 10th parliament) of the Jatiya Sangsad was prorogued after 24 sittings that passed the national budget for fiscal 2017-18 .
The worst part about meetings isn’t showing off your new presentation; it’s how difficult it is to get your computer screen to show up on the TV.At Computex, Intel introduced its real-time collaboration solution Unite to remove some of the headaches associated with sharing presentations. The system uses a secure Wi-Fi connection with a rotating PIN to connect to a Core vPro processor-powered mini PC connected to an office’s display. Attendees download and install a lightweight client on their Mac or Windows machine and can share their desktop, annotate shared presentations and view up to four attendee’s screens at once.It’s a pretty straightforward solution. It makes meetings start quicker and gives attendees the ability to work together on a single presentation. But, it’s the upcoming extensibility that could convince your IT department to drop your current solution for Unite.Intel will release reference plugins in the next 30 days that will add additional functions to the Unite platform including a Skype plugin that can be used to turn the collaborative-meeting system into a teleconferencing system. These reference plugins will coincide with the release of a Unite SDK for third-party developers.The upcoming reference plugins will also include a way to control a room’s lighting and a telepresence solution. But Intel is keen to see what the community builds for the platform.It’s a low-cost platform (roughly $700 with a computer according to Intel) that’s already available for large IT departments. Intel VP of Business Client Platform Division Tom Garrison noted that those departments will be able to deploy updates to all devices running Unite just like any other PC on a network. For small businesses looking for a meeting solution, a version for them will be available in 30 days.

WVUA 23 Student Reporter Angelina GiancroceTUSCALOOSA, AL (WVUA) – 84 million, that’s the amount of people in the United States who are considered pre-diabetic according to the American Diabetes Association.Program coordinator at Whatley Health Services, Regina Brooks and the rest of staff are on a mission to change that number. Their new program, “Change Your Lifestyle, Change Your Life”, is designed to educate people on how they can make healthier choices.“Participant gets information from us, we are lifestyle coaches, there is five of us that do the program. We will have classes that are available outside of a four wall classroom. We can meet at the grocery store to learn about healthy shopping and reading food labels and things like that, or we may meet the park and do some walking at the park or down by the river walk or anything like that.”Eugene Middleton has been living with diabetes for 16 years said that its important to understand that preventing diabetes is very attainable, if you make the right choices.“People don’t know what they are putting in their bodies. I have friends who go to waffle house every day and are on the verge of getting type 2 diabetes. Its something that’s there in front of us but we just dont know it.”The year long program is funded by the center for disease control and in collaboration with the black women’s health imperative and is free to anyone.You don’t even have to be a Whatley patient to have access to this potentially life changing program.
