[Deal Alert] HP selling its Chromebook x2 for just $520 ($80 off)

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

HP's Chromebook x2 was the first Chrome OS-powered detachable, and although it was an interesting novelty (and probable future for the platform), the $599 asking price may have been a bit steep. Not long after launch, it went on a small $30-off discount, but as of today you can pick one up for a more sizable $80 markdown, sold directly from HP.

According to About Chromebooks, the HP Chromebook x2 only actually went on sale direct from HP as of today, humorously coinciding with a price increase to $650 over at Best Buy.

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

The past week has been absolutely overrun with deals, do in no small part to the arrival of Amazon's annual Prime Day.

Here are some of our favorite deals from the past few days, ones that are both still available and aren't exclusive to Prime users.

Snapchat’s payment feature is shutting down August 30

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

Snapchat introduced 'Snapcash' in 2014, as a way for users to send each other money. The feature wasn't a great idea from the start, especially when combined with Snapchat's popularity for sharing explicit photos. Now it appears Snapchat is dropping Snapcash entirely.

TechCrunch found a Snapcash deprecation message in a recent Snapchat APK, and when the site reached out to Snap Inc, it confirmed the feature would be shut down on August 30.

[Update: More tests] Google Images testing new mobile-style UI for the web

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

Google doesn't often revise its interface for image searches, though it did tweak the mobile UI a bit in October of last year. The web version is now getting a similar treatment, complete with a new look for the gallery and a new image viewer.

The current UI.

The new gallery look being tested is a bit hard to explain, but in a nutshell, it mirrors the mobile UI.

Samsung’s new ‘Ingenius’ commercials poke fun at the iPhone X

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

Samsung and Apple burning each other in commercials is a long-standing tradition at this point. Samsung's recent ads have been lackluster, like the recent 'Moving On' commercial that pitted the Galaxy S9 against... a four year-old iPhone. The company is now back with a new 'Ingenious' ad campaign, this time targeting the iPhone X.

There are four ads so far. There's 'Fast Charger,' which points out that the iPhone X doesn't ship with a quick charger (you have to buy a USB Type-C to Lightning cable, as well as a Type-C wall adapter).

[Free Alert] Amazon offering 20 books to Prime subscribers, including those from Neil deGrasse Tyson and Margaret Atwood, for absolutely free

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

An Amazon Prime membership comes with a slew of benefits. Most people are familiar with the free two-day shipping, Prime Video, and Prime Photos, but the company also offers other services like free Twitch Prime, discounts at Whole Foods, and more. For the more avid readers out there, there's the $9.99/month Kindle Unlimited plan, but that's just a waste of money for most people. But Amazon is currently offering 20 books to regular Prime members to borrow for absolutely free via Prime Reading, and there are some popular titles in there.

Chrome will officially shut down Supervised Users feature in October 2018

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

Google announced the deprecation of Chrome Supervised Users at the start of 2018. The tool allowed a Chrome user to allow, block, or manage access to sites for supervised users designated under their account. Now we know that v70 of the browser, slated for an October 2018 release, will mark the official end for the feature.

A Chromium Gerrit commit says: "Show an infobar to supervised users announcing EOL in M70." That's a fairly clear indication that Chrome v70 will bring the end of the feature.
