Bluetooth 5.0 true wireless earbuds are here (and they’re half price)

Category : Bluetooth 5 , Deals , earbuds

True wireless earbuds have divided opinions in the past. The main issues usually revolved around connectivity, with Bluetooth 4.0 not always offering an uninterrupted listening experience.
Luckily Bluetooth 5.0 is here. It’s twice as fast as previous Bluetooth versions and has eight times better broadcasting message capacity. Lost connectivity or waiting for your device to re-pair is no longer an issue.
Manufacturers Trndlabs claims the Allas earbuds are the first Bluetooth 5.0 true wireless earbuds available worldwide. We haven’t verified that, but we do think they look like great value for money. That’s especially true this week, as they’re almost half price.
In addition to a smoother listening experience, the Allas earbuds offer a compact and ergonomic design. They don’t protrude from the ear or have unflattering extra limbs, yet still fit comfortably and securely in place. They’re also water and sweat-resistant, so they can be used as a gym buddy.
It’s not the most important aspect of earbuds, but we think they look pretty stylish too.
The Allas true wireless earbuds at a glance:

Enjoy better connectivity and fewer interruptions with Bluetooth 5.0 audio
Listen in greater comfort with an ergonomic design and changeable earplugs
Take anywhere thanks to their sweat and water-resistant design
Easily respond to incoming calls with the built-in controls
Enjoy your music with deep bass and high-quality audio

If you buy from the Trndlabs homesite then these buds will set you back $99, but if you only want to pay around half that, right now Tech Deals are offering them for just $49.99. That includes a one-year warranty too.
The deal is only this week, so don’t miss out. Hit the button below to find it.

Diablo: Immortal will go dungeon crawling on Android; pre-register now

Category : News

Blizzard Entertainment has announced its second mobile game, Diablo: Immortal, for Android and iOS.
It is a full-fledged action-RPG and takes place between the events of Diablo II and III.
You can pre-register for the game now at the Google Play Store.

Blizzard is the home to some of the biggest game franchises of all time: Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft, and more recently Overwatch. Today, the developer announced its second-ever mobile game (after the collectible card RPG Hearthstone) with Diablo: Immortal.
Diablo: Immortal — which Blizzard is co-developing with NetEase — is no mere port of any previous Diablo PC or console game. Diablo: Immortal was developed from the ground up as a stand-alone mobile experience.
For lore nerds, the storyline in Diablo: Immortal takes place between the events of Diablo II and III. The Archangel Tyrael is believed to be dead, while the Worldstone has been shattered into various fragments. Those Worldstone segments are the source of new and ancient evil creatures who want to use the stone’s power to take over the land.

Players will be able to choose from six classes (Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Crusader, Demon Hunter, and Necromancer), and each class will have a set of at least 12 skills. Blizzard promises that Diablo: Immortal will give fans of the franchise an authentic action-RPG “hack and slash” gameplay experience on smartphones and tablets. It will include touch controls which will allow players to begin an ability, charge it up, aim it, and fire it from just a single thumb input.

Former Clemson Quarterback Kelly Bryant Undecided on Future

Category : Clemson , Sports

Just a little over a month ago, Senior quarterback Kelly Bryant was the starting quarterback for the almighty Clemson Tigers. Although he wasn’t exactly doing a lousy job at his position, Clemson’s Head Coach Dabo Swinney decided that it was best if the Tigers rolled with Freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence and not Bryant.
Natually, Bryant wanted out of Clemson. This isn’t a rare occasion as many quarterback’s transfers for personal gain. With Bryant not having much time left on his availability, he needed to make a move that works best for him. So, instead of competing with Lawrence all season long, Bryant decided that it was best if he transferred. There’s only one problem – He’s not sure where he wants to play just yet.
Where Has He Gone?
Two weeks ago, Bryant had the internet buzzing as he was spotted in the crowd watching the University of Kentucky and Missouri play. He’s also visited North Carolina, and Arkansas, and is rumored to have the interest of Baylor, and Louisville as well, according to College Football Talk.
Before his benching, Kelly was leading the Tigers with 36 completions for 461 yards, and two touchdowns. In 2017, he completed 65-percent of his passes for over 2,800 yards, 13 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He might not be a Heisman Trophy candidate, but he’s definitely one of the more intriguing prospects available with experience.
For a team that is one decent quarterback away from competing, Kelly Bryant is the guy they should be looking at. Although he enjoyed his trip to Mizzou as he stated they”checked all of his boxes” he is going to continue his college tours until he finds his ideal landing spot.
This weekend, Bryant had an official visit to UNC scheduled, as he will watch them take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Before his trip to Greensboro though, Bryant made a pit stop at Auburn University, as he continues to just add on to his list of potential landing spots. Bryant wants to be sure of his new team considering that he only has one year left to make everything right. Where will he end up?


Deal: Grab the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Lavender Purple for $140 off

It might be tempting to just wait and see what 2019 has in store for smartphones, but Amazon’s deal on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might make you want to reconsider your options. The online retailer recently brought the Galaxy Note 9’s price down to $859.
That is a $140.99 savings from the phone’s normal $999.99 price. It might not seem like a tremendous discount, particularly seeing how we have seen more significant Galaxy Note 9 deals on eBay. That said, this is the U.S. version with a full one-year warranty, Snapdragon 845 processor, and Samsung Pay functionality.
Editor’s PickBest Samsung Galaxy Note 9 accessories

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is here and is currently up for pre-order in a lot of markets. Samsung has enjoyed immense success with the Galaxy Note series and the company is hoping to continue …
The U.S. version also excludes the dual SIM slots, though you still get the microSD card slot if you want more than the 128GB the phone comes with. Finally, you can only get the $859 Galaxy Note 9 in Lavender Purple. The Midnight Black option still sits at $999.99, while the Ocean Blue is slightly discounted to $974.97.
As a quick recap, the Galaxy Note 9 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 2,960 x 1,440 resolution, dual rear 12-megapixel cameras, the aforementioned Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 4,000mAh battery. The phone also includes the S-Pen that gives it its namesake, with the stylus featuring Bluetooth connectivity.
You can pick up this deal at the link below. We are not sure how long Amazon plans to offer the Galaxy Note 9 at this price, so it is best to jump on it sooner than later.

Samsung will open Bixby to developers, hopefully make it better

Category : News , Samsung , Samsung Bixby

Samsung will open up Bixby to developers, allowing third-parties to create features for the virtual assistant.
By opening up Bixby to developers, Samsung hopes to catch up with Amazon and Google, which already allow the practice.
The Samsung Galaxy Home — the company’s Bixby-powered smart speaker — still has no release date.

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Samsung will make an announcement at the Samsung Developers Conference next week. It’s expected Samsung will open up Bixby for development by third-parties.
This wouldn’t be the first time Samsung has allowed third-party developers to work with Bixby, but it would be the first time Samsung’s opened the doors so wide to the public.
It’s likely that Samsung hopes third-party devs will help Bixby catch up to its more-prominent rivals: Google Assistant, Amazon’s Alexa, and Apple’s Siri. As of now, Bixby is behind even Microsoft’s Cortana when it comes to usage by the general public.
Editor’s PickSamsung wants Bixby in every device it sells, whether you like it or not

Thanks to Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri, and Microsoft’s Cortana, the virtual assistant market is a crowded one. Nonetheless, Samsung entered the fray with Bixby in 2017 with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus …
At the Developers Conference, Samsung will outline how engineers can create “capsules” for Bixby, which sound a lot like the Skills developers already create for Alexa. These Skills enable Alexa to perform tasks like read the news, play games, or book a table at a restaurant.
Although Bixby is way behind when it comes to general adoption, Samsung has an ace up its sleeve: the fact that it sells over 500 million electronic products each year, everything from televisions to refrigerators to smartphones. Every single one of those products could receive Bixby integration, which Samsung plans to do by 2020.
By harnessing the talents of third-party developers, Samsung could turn Bixby into a major competitor to Alexa and Google Assistant. However, it’s an uphill battle for Samsung, especially when you consider the company’s household smart speaker — the Samsung Galaxy Home — is still MIA with no release date in sight.
At the Samsung Developers Conference, we also expect to finally hear some concrete details about its upcoming foldable smartphone, which the company has been working on for years.
NEXT: Samsung takes pity on us, makes it harder to activate Bixby on Note 9


WWE Crown Jewel 2018: Reactions & Review

Category : Brock Lesnar , Sports , WWE

Here’s our final thoughts on WWE Crown Jewel 2018! We’ve provided reactions and review for each of the event’s crucial matches, as well as grades ranking the PPV’s finest moments.
Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs Rusev (United States Championship)
Review: A solid way to open the Kickoff Show. Nakamura and Rusev are both exciting performers, making for an unpredictable match. It seemed as though Rusev was going to be the victor when he got Nakamura in the Accolade in the middle of the ring, but the latter managed to crawl toward the ropes and break the hold. Nakamura then head-butted Rusev’s groin and followed with Kinshasa to pick up the pin. Nothing outstanding, but nothing too boring either.
Grade: 7/10
Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton (World Cup, Quarter Finals)
Review: An anticipated match due to the return of Rey Mysterio, this brief showcase was underwhelming. Mysterio took down Orton by folding him up in a pinning combination, and afterward, Orton hit Mysterio with an RKO, launched Mysterio out of the ring and threw him over the announce table. A win for Mysterio, but not an especially memorable one.
Grade: 5/10
The Miz vs Jeff Hardy (World Cup, Quarter Finals)
Review: Another lukewarm match that should have offered more given the talent involved. Hardy dominated most of the match, which resulted in him winning via pinfall. All things considered, this will go down as one of Crown Jewel’s least memorable showcases this year.
Grade: 4/10
Seth Rollins vs Bobby Lashley (World Cup, Quarter Finals)
Review: An early standout. Lashley dominated the start of the match, but a pair of suicide dives from Rollins shifted the momentum in his favor. Rollins was hampered by the injuries he sustained when he was attacked by Dean Ambrose, but he still managed to take a painful blow from Lashley and take him out with a Stomp for the pinfall. Lio Rush watched from the sidelines.
Grade: 7/10
Dolph Ziggler vs Kurt Angle (World Cup, Quarter Finals)
Review: Another match defined by its shift in momentum. Angle appeared to be the favorite midway through the match, as he hit Ziggler with the Angle Slam and dodged a Zig-Zag attempt with a brutal ankle lock. Somehow, Ziggler managed to turn the tables and escape the ankle lock before hitting a successful Zig-Zag for the win.
Grade: 6/10
The Bar vs The New Day (SmackDown Tag Team Championship)
Review: The New Day receive a huge ovation heading to the ring, and they strike first, as Kofi Kingston hit a double stomp on Sheamus and Big E hit a powerslam for a narrow two count. Big Show took they out, however, by climbing to the top rope and hitting a brutal knockout punch. Sheamus closed it out with a Brogue Kick and a pin.
Grade: 7/10
The Miz vs Rey Mysterio (World Cup, Semifinals)
Review: A noted improvement over Miz and Mysterio’s earlier matches. Mysterio hit Miz with a huricanrana, but just when it seemed as though Mysterio was thrown face-first into the corner, and was struck in his injured ribs. Miz struck at Mysterio’s weak spots and ultimately pinned him for the win.
Grade: 8/10
Dolph Ziggler vs Seth Rollins (World Cup, Semifinals)
Review: Rollins’ neck injury allowed Ziggler to have the advantage for the bulk of the match. Rollins kept things competitively, slingshotting Ziggler out of the ring at one point, but the latter took the lead with a Famouser for a close two count. Ziggler then followed it up with the Zig-Zag, and Rollins kicked out late again. With the referee distracted and Rollins escaping to the top rope, however, Ziggler dodged a final attack and got the win with a superkick.
Grade: 8/10
AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe (WWE Championship)
Review: Styles starts off strong, hitting Joe with punches and a kick that sends Joe down. Joe eventually bounces back, getting Styles in a lock but the latter manages to break it. Joe locks the Coquina Clutch on Styles, but again he leverages himself out and levels Joe with with a stiff forearm. Styles wins by pinfall in what proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable match.
Grade: 8/10
Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman (Universal Champion)
Review: Before the match began, RAW general manager Baron Corbin came out and hit Strowman over the head with the universal title belt. Lesnar shows up and proceeds to hit Strowman with three F5s before throwing him outside the ring. Strowman fights off the ten count, but Lesnar hits him with a final F5 for the win. Though unexpected, the match proved a letdown, as Strowman was incapacitated and wasn’t allowed to have a genuine contest with Lesnar.
Grade: 5/10
Dolph Ziggler vs Shane McMahon (World Cup)
Review: McMahon comes out guns blazing, dropping several hard hits on Ziggler, and forciing him to go on the defense. in with punches, forcing Ziggler to turtle up in the corner. Baron Corbin trips Shane from ringside, but referee Ryan Tran sees it and ejects the general manager on the spot. Ziggler tries to take advantage of the break in action but McMahon dodges his Zig-Zag and hits him with a Coast to Coast for the win. An exciting and thoroughly unpredictable closer.
Grade: 8/10


Report: Some new smartphones have worse battery life than old counterparts

Category : Battery Life , News

A new report from The Washington Post suggests some newer smartphones get worse battery life than their older counterparts.
Specifically, the Google Pixel 3 and Apple iPhone XS tested worse than their previous models.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 tested the best of all the Android phones on the list.

Over at The Washington Post, journalist Geoffrey A. Fowler conducted a series of battery life tests on popular smartphones, including both Android and iOS devices. Fowler found that some new devices actually fared worse than their older counterparts in his tests.
One would usually assume that the newer a smartphone is, the better its battery life will be. However, Fowler found that in a few cases, the older device fares better than the newer device when it comes to battery life.
For Android, Fowler found that both the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL tested better than the Google Pixel 3. However, both second-generation Pixels didn’t do as well as the Google Pixel 3 XL.
Editor’s PickSamsung Galaxy Note 9 battery review: Huge, but enough?In most metrics, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is an impressive flagship phone. It’s got a great camera, it’s very powerful, and it’s one of the best Android phones on the market. Perhaps most importantly, …
For iOS, it appears the Apple iPhone XS didn’t fare as well as the iPhone X. In fact, the iPhone 8 Plus handily beat the iPhone XS and XS Max.
Remarkably, the iPhone XR topped the entire list when it comes to battery life, beating out the top Android device — the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 — by a slight margin.
Check out Fowler’s full chart of results below:
The Washington Post
Despite the anomalies of the Pixels and iPhones, most of the results do tend to match with the idea that newer phones get better life than older phones. The results also suggest bigger phones get better battery life, which makes sense because they usually have bigger batteries.
To conduct his test, Fowler used a light meter to set every device at the exact same brightness level. He then used a script to make the devices endlessly scroll through web pages. The results you see above are how long it took for each device to go from 100 percent battery to empty.
What do you think? Have you noticed worse battery life on a newer device as compared to a previous model in the line? Let us know your experiences in the comments!

Election Update: Gender Might Be Shaping Democrats’ Senate Chances

Not much has changed over at our midterm Senate forecast. Our model has been consistently showing Democrats at a disadvantage to take back control of the chamber. According to our Classic model, the odds are 1 in 7.
We have seen a trend develop: not all the so-called “red-state Democrats” (incumbents from states that President Trump won in 2016) are faring the same. Some, like the incumbents in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin are doing quite well. But we have our eye on red-state Democrats in states that lean heavily Republican. We’re mostly thinking of Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, Sen. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. Some of these senators are doing better than others.
Manchin has a comfortable 7-in-8 chance of keeping his seat, as does Tester. Donnelly has a slightly less robust lead, but our forecast still shows him with a 7-in-10 chance of winning. The red-state Democrats that look most endangered are McCaskill, who has a 3-in-5 chance, and Heitkamp who only has a 1-in-4 chance of keeping her seat.
If there is one theme that ties all these red-state Democrats’ reelection campaigns together it is “independence.” Each senator is trying to make a pitch that’s local, something along the lines of, “I’m here to protect the interests of the people of our state, not the interest of a party, and I’ll work across the aisle to get that done if need be.” They’re trying to appeal to Democrats, independents as well as a whole bunch of people who voted for Trump. That’s why you saw Donnelly make an ad that talked about the “radical left” and quoted Ronald Reagan, why Manchin reprised his shooting-a-piece-of-legislation-with-a-gun gambit (proof of independence and Second Amendment support), and why McCaskill has one spot that says she’s not “one of those crazy Democrats.”
But why are some of these red-state Democrats doing better than others? Some of these red states are redder than others. According to our partisan lean metric, North Dakota is the reddest of this group — it’s 33.2 points more Republican than the country overall, meaning Heitkamp is operating in a political environment that’s hostile to Democrats. But West Virginia is also pretty darn red — 30.5 points more Republican than the rest of the country, and Manchin is doing well there. Montana is 17.7 points more Republican, Indiana is 17.9 points more Republican and Missouri 19.0 points more Republican, yet in those three states with relatively similar levels of partisanship, it’s McCaskill that’s doing the worst.
Could something else explain Heitkamp and McCaskill’s troubles, something the forecast model can’t measure? Gender perhaps? Earlier this year, political scientist David Hopkins told my colleague Perry Bacon Jr., “There is some scholarly evidence that voters tend to perceive female politicians as more liberal than men.” Could this, coupled with recent high-profile political happenings be making an already hostile partisan environment even more hostile for these two women?
Events of the past few weeks put red-state Democrats in the uncomfortable position of deciding whether or not to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after he was accused of sexual assault. For many of the women of the Senate, the vote went beyond a party line position and verged into the realm of the personal. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski voted against Kavanaugh and said when asked in an interview that she’d had her own #MeToo moment (she declined to specify further). Heitkamp voted against the nominee as well, a move that many think might have sealed her fate. The senator said the vote wasn’t political. “History will judge you but most importantly you’ll judge yourself. And that’s really what I’m saying. I can’t get up in the morning and look at the life experience that I’ve had and say yes to Judge Kavanaugh.” McCaskill voted against the judge as well.
The highly partisan nature of the confirmation vote only a few weeks before Election Day was bad news for red-state Democrats overall, reminding Republican voters in their states of the national partisan stakes of their votes. Which of these candidates win on Election Day and which lose will come down in part to the kinds of campaigns they’ve run and the natural partisanship of their state environments, of course. But politics reflects the complications of human nature. It might well be the case that, as in so many parts of life, gender biases have been rearing up.
