DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters. It normally runs $350, but this deal drops it to $261 when you apply promo code 19LABOR10 at checkout. Comments Read DJI Osmo Action preview 3 HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Sarah Tew/CNET 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. Read the AirPods review $210 at Best Buy See It 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). See at Amazon Read Lenovo Smart Clock review $60 at Best Buy 7 Sprint Tags Turo Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) 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.

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. See at Turo Share your voice 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.

There is no Dana, there is only Zuul. Oh, wait. There IS a Dana, and she’s coming back to the Ghostbusters universe.Sigourney Weaver, who starred as Dana Barrett in the original 1984 version of Ghostbusters, told Parade magazine in an interview published Friday that she’s excited to reprise that role.”It’s going to be crazy working with the guys again!” Weaver said.The interview is pretty cagey about revealing much, but it does say Weaver will be back as Dana, and that Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will also return. Harold Ramis, who played Ghostbuster Egon Spengler, died in 2014.The new film is due out July 2020. Chris Monroe/CNET $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express TV and Movies,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.

Facebook is walloped with $5 billion fine (The Daily… Now playing: Watch this: Smart displays let Amazon, Facebook, Google show you answers to your questions Share your voice It’s a big thumbs-up for Facebook when it comes to attracting and keeping users. James Martin/CNET Facebook said Wednesday that the Federal Trade Commission opened an antitrust investigation into the company, but the heightened regulatory scrutiny doesn’t appear to have slowed down the social network’s growth.The new investigation came on the same day that the Federal Trade Commission announced that it was hitting Facebook with a record $5 billion fine for its earlier privacy mishaps. It also comes a day after the US Department of Justice said it was looking into anti-competition concerns surrounding “market-leading online platforms,” such as social media firms, suggesting that the review would impact Facebook. Still, Facebook showed that users continue to log into the site in massive numbers. The world’s largest social network said that 2.41 billion people now log into Facebook every month, an 8% increase compared to the same period last year. Facebook reported $16.9 billion in revenue in the second quarter, which ran from April to June. That’s above the $16.5 billion that analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected on average.The social network made $2.6 billion in the second quarter. It earned 91 cents per share, falling short of expectations of $1.85. It said that the earnings included several expenses such as the legal costs of the FTC settlement. Facebook FTC Tags Comments Originally published July 24, 1:15 p.m. PTUpdate, 1:21 p.m. PT: Adds background about FTC antitrust investigation and statement from Zuckerberg.Update, 3:36 p.m. PT: Adds comments from earnings call and remarks from analyst. 7:37 5 Facebook revealed little about the new FTC investigation, which it was notified of in June. The FTC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg didn’t address the antitrust concerns in a call with analysts, but vowed to protect user privacy and monitor developers who access data through Facebook’s platform.”This is a major shift for us,” he said. “We’ve built services that billions of people trust every day to communicate with the people they care about. Privacy has always been important to the services we provide and now it’s even more central to our future vision for social networking.”Facebook is expecting people to share more in the social network’s private spaces such as messaging, groups and Stories, a feature that lets you post photos and videos that vanish in 24 hours. At the same time, the company has been expanding into payments, virtual reality, e-commerce, cryptocurrency and other areas. Earlier in the day, Facebook agreed to form a new board committee to help protect user privacy as part of a separate settlement with the FTC. The fine is the largest ever against a company for mishandling of consumer privacy, the FTC said. Lawmakers and advocacy groups argue that the deal didn’t address the core problem: Facebook’s ad business relies on collecting user data.The FTC has been investigating the company since revelations last year that UK political consultant firm Cambridge Analytica harvested the data of up to 87 million users without their consent. The firm, which worked on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, got the data through the owner of a quiz app that scraped information from Facebook users and their friends. The deal isn’t the end of the scrutiny that Facebook is facing from regulators in the US and abroad. The social network is also planning to launch a new cryptocurrency called Libra in 2020, a move that sparked a backlash from lawmakers and nonprofits that think the company should temporarily halt these efforts. Zuckerberg said that the company will work with regulators before launching the cryptocurrency.”We get that these are really important sensitive spaces so our approach has been to try to have a very open dialogue about it,” he said. “Facebook from a few years ago would have probably just showed up and released a product on our own.”Facebook’s stock jumped more than 1% but then dipped after the company’s CFO Dave Wehner said that the company expected revenue growth to slow in the fourth quarter and in 2020 because of a European data protection law, changes to operating systems and product changes that “put privacy more front and center.” The company’s stock is still up less than 1% in after-hours trading to $206.10 per share.Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst with eMarketer, said in a statement that advertisers are still on Facebook because of its massive audience and ad targeting. Still, they’re also paying more attention to the social network’s problems. “Today’s FTC settlement doesn’t appear to have direct impact on Facebook’s business, but there is no reason to think that other regulatory or governmental investigations won’t have an impact in the future,” she said.

Creative CommonsThe Income Tax department has detected over Rs 19,000 crore in black money following investigations into global leaks, including HSBC account holders in Switzerland, according to a PTI report on Friday.The PTI report quoted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as saying that investigations into information put in the public domain by the ICIJ or the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, pertaining to about 700 Indian persons allegedly linked to offshore entities based on no tax or low tax jurisdiction, have led to the detection of more than Rs 11,010 crore of credits in undisclosed foreign accounts.”72 prosecution complaints in 31 such cases have been filed before the criminal courts,” Jaitley informed the Lok Sabha, according to the report.The government constituted a multi-agency group (MAG) in April 2016 to facilitate and expedite investigation in cases of Indian individuals who allegedly have undisclosed foreign assets and whose names were reportedly included in the Panama papers leak.Jaitley said that information on 628 Indian individuals holding bank accounts in HSBC bank in Switzerland was received from the government of France under the Double Taxation Avoidance Convention (DTAC) between India and France.”As a result of the systematic investigation in these cases, undisclosed income of about Rs 8,437 crore was brought to tax till May 2017. Besides, concealment penalty of Rs 1,287 crore was levied in 162 cases and 199 criminal prosecution complaints were filed in 84 cases,” Jaitley pointed out.He noted, however, that the information received under the tax treaties can be used for tax purposes and its disclosure is governed by the confidentiality provisions of such treaties.Replying to a query, whether the government has made any assessment of black money stashed away by Indians in foreign countries, Jaitley said there is no official estimation of that, the PTI report said.However, he said, the government had commissioned a study on estimation of unaccounted income and wealth inside and outside the country to be conducted by NIPFP, NIFM, and NCAER.”The reports of these institutions and the government’s response to the findings in the reports would be placed before the Standing Committee on Finance shortly,” he added.

September 17, 2015 2 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Automated device maker iRobot, which has sold 14 million robotic vacuums worldwide, just announced a major play for the Internet of Things with its Roomba 980, the company’s first connected vacuum with an affixed camera for smarter home navigation.At a lofty press event yesterday in Manhattan, where CEO Colin Angle likened Roomba’s household cleaning expeditions to those of Lewis and Clark in their discovery of the Pacific Coast, the company positioned its latest Roomba as a foray into the connected home market — which is expected to be worth $71 billion by 2018.“iRobot is positioning itself not just to be the best vacuum in the world,” Angle said, “[but to] lead us toward a future where robots can do much more in service of humanity.”If the old Roomba was blind, says Christian Cerda, iRobot’s SVP and general manager of Home Robots, the latest model — priced at a hefty $899 — can see.Related: The Robot Battle of Your Childhood Dreams Is Actually HappeningAs opposed to previous models, which could only clean two or three rooms and react to obstacles reflexively, the Roomba 980 uses sensors and cameras to build a map of its surroundings as it moves for a smarter cleaning job. A battery charge lasts up to two hours — at which point the Roomba scoots back to its base, powers up and then gets back to work.This is the first Roomba that is Wi-Fi-connected and can be operated by smartphones with a dedicated app to schedule cleanings, the company said.Connectivity also means that iRobot collects data from its machines — though the company is only “collecting average data” about cleaning performance and not videos or images, Cerda assures. “We have developed it against hacking, we have tested it against hacking,” he says, his voice trailing off, “but hopefully that will never happen.”The company expects the 980 to become the most popular connected home product in the world within a year, Cerda said, at which point iRobot plans to bring connectivity to different devices beyond its beloved Roombas.
