Sarah Tew/CNET Sprint Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

See at Turo Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Angela Lang/CNET See It Read the Rylo camera preview $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express 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.

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Comments Enlarge ImageActor Jason Momoa makes a splashy impression as Aquaman. Warner Bros. Pictures Part of fandom means dealing with fans who hate what you love. In some cases, that requires biting your tongue when you really want to tell off a hater online. Aquaman director James Wan took to Twitter on Sunday to remind fans there’s room for both fans who love and hate his vision for the DC Comics underwater superhero. Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout).

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.

And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. “It has come to my attention that some folks are getting harassed by some fans for not liking Aquaman. Please don’t do that. Not the kind of support I want. Be respectful,” Wan tweeted.  Wan also reminded fans who didn’t like his version of Aquaman that he isn’t interested in being attacked as a result. “Vice versa, it’s OK to not like my film, but there’s no need to attack me personally, or tag me on hates,” Wan added. Aquaman, in theaters worldwide now, stars Jason Momoa as the trident-carrying superhero Arthur Curry/Aquaman who goes on a journey that will force him to decide if he’s worthy to be king of the ocean. 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.

This Is What the Internet Will Look Like in 2025

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 4 min read Tomorrow, the World Wide Web turns 25. To mark the occasion, the Pew Research Center asked a range of entrepreneurs, researchers, writers and developers, among others, for their predictions about what the it will look like in 10 years.Their responses, unsurprisingly, run the gamut from hopeful and excited to darkly pessimistic. Depending on the person, the web will make the world a fairer, more connected and knowledgeable place or transform it into a fragmented cesspool of greed where terrorism is a daily reality.However, most experts do agree that as it ages, the World Wide Web will become more pervasive as well as seamlessly accessible. Emerging technologies, including wearable and embedded computing, will enable us to easily connect (or perhaps never disconnect) from a cloud of sophisticated, intelligent and cheap (maybe even free) processing power.Here are a range of predictions for what the web will look like at 35.Related: ‘Future of Now’: The Convergence of Social Media, Crowdfunding and TechMore integrated. “The Internet will shift from the place we find cat videos to a background capability that will be a seamless part of how we live our everyday lives. We won’t think about ‘going online’ or ‘looking on the Internet’ for something — we’ll just be online, and just look.” — Joe Touch, director at the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences InstituteCheaper and more insightful. “When the cost of collecting information on virtually every interaction falls to zero, the insights that we gain from our activity, in the context of the activity of others, will fundamentally change the way we relate to one another, to institutions, and with the future itself. We will become far more knowledgeable about the consequences of our actions; we will edit our behavior more quickly and intelligently.” — Patrick Tucker, author of The Naked Future: What Happens In a World That Anticipates Your Every Move?“We will grow accustomed to seeing the world through multiple data layers. This will change a lot of social practices, such as dating, job interviewing and professional networking, and gaming, as well as policing and espionage.” — Daren C. Brabham, a professor at the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, University of Southern CaliforniaA more detailed recorder of daily life.“We’ll have a picture of how someone has spent their time, the depth of their commitment to their hobbies, causes, friends, and family. This will change how we think about people, how we establish trust, how we negotiate change, failure, and success.” — Judith Donath, a fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and SocietyRelated: The Internet of Things: New Threats Emerge in a Connected WorldFragmented. “The Internet will generate several new related networks. Some will require verified identification to access, while others will promise increased privacy.” — Sean Mead, senior director of strategy and analytics for Interbrand“The Internet will fragment. Global connectivity will continue to exist, but through a series of separate channels controlled by a series of separate protocols. Our use of separate channels for separate applications will be necessitated by security problems, cyber policy of nations and corporations, and our continued attempts to find better ways to do things.” — Ian Peter, pioneer Internet activist and Internet rights advocateDark and hierarchical. “Everything — every thing — will be available online with price tags attached. Cyber-terrorism will become commonplace. Privacy and confidentiality of any and all personal will become a thing of the past. Online ‘diseases’ — mental, physical, social, addictions (psycho-cyber drugs) — will affect families and communities and spread willy-nilly across borders. The digital divide will grow and worsen beyond the control of nations or global organizations such as the UN. This will increasingly polarize the planet between haves and have-nots. Global companies will exploit this polarization. Digital criminal networks will become realities of the new frontiers. Terrorism, both by organizations and individuals, will be daily realities. The world will become less and less safe, and only personal skills and insights will protect individuals.” — Llewellyn Kriel, CEO and editor in chief of TopEditor International Media Services“Yes, the information we want will increasingly find its way to us, as networks learn to accurately predict our interests and weaknesses. But that will also tempt us to stop seeking out knowledge, narrowing our horizons, even as we delve evermore deep. The privacy premium may also be a factor: only the relatively well-off (and well-educated) will know how to preserve their privacy in 2025.” — An anonymous respondentRelated: Passwords You Swallow, Sharks That Tweet and 90-MPH Cheeseburgers Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global March 11, 2014 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
