Only $119 for a laptop? Wow! This Acer Chromebook isn't going to power the space shuttle or anything, but it's more than enough for day-to-day work or when you're on the go. At this price, it's hard to say no.
"I have a desktop and a larger Chromebook. This smaller one goes with me everywhere. It is so lightweight that I can put it in a tote bag and have it on hand when I need it. It's easy to use, and when watching videos the picture is fantastic. (My cat loves watching bird videos on it, too)," one pleased customer said.
This lightweight, portable machine comes packed with 4GB of RAM, a 64GB hard drive, and Intel integrated graphics. It's a good, everyday use machine, but it also includes 3 months of Xbox Game Pass for free.
"We bought this lap top for small uses. FB, emails, surfing the web. It's been just what we need. The thinnest and how beautiful the screen color and size was amazing to see. Set up was so easy," said one satisfied shopper. "I did youtube it to get a jump on it before I bought it and for set up. Which I was so happy I did. Just need a wireless printer and we are good to go! Goodbye desk top."
These buds' active noise cancellation tech and Transparent Hearing mode mean you not only hear your music without interruption, you won't miss important sounds — like a car horn, or someone speaking to you.
"If you’re looking for a solid alternative for AirPod Pros, these are it," one happy reviewer said. "The ANC and sound and connectivity are very good. They come with four different-sized tips that are very useful for fitting. I mainly use these at the gym, and they keep me in the zone without having to worry about them falling out. 100% worth it."
Not only do you get Samsung's award-winning Galaxy Buds 2 Pro; you'll also pocket an extra charger for your phone and other accessories. The Buds 2 Pro provide 360-degree audio and work with fast-charge functions.
A five-star reviewer raved, "These are what Bluetooth buds should all aspire to be like! Easy to pair with your Samsung phone, no special software or complex setup process to fuss with, and they consistently both pair with the phone and work as they should. Other brands of buds frustrated me so much I threw them in the trash and got these instead. Highly recommended!"
"Love that this works with Apple," said one happy user. "When I pull out of the drive, it asks me if I want to run my automation and locks my door for me. I can lock and unlock from my phone from anywhere. I have had no issues with it so far and have had it for a month or so. Easy to install and set up...definitely recommend!"
This is the mother of all gaming monitors, at 49 inches wide and with 4K resolution, a 240-frame-per-second refresh rate, and 1 millisecond of lag. We like those numbers! It's one of the best monitors out there, and right now, it's an absolute steal.
"This thing is fantastic. I have considered sending an e-mail to Samsung thanking them for making this. It is beautiful. I didn't know my old monitor was robbing me of colors. It was. This thing is incredible," one thrilled gamer said. "Perfect in every way that matters. I don't know of a nicer monitor. Nothing is going to check all the boxes or you would never buy another monitor. But this one ticks the most boxes. Thanks Samsung. You made every experience that I have with my PC better than it has ever been."
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago. “We’re starting.

Matthew Cameron, a 33-year-old engineer from Kensington, P.E.I., embarked on his second Dry January this month. His last Dry January lasted well into the summer. "I started realizing I value mornings, especially on the weekends," said Cameron. "Saturday mornings you can get up at 7, 8, just have that coffee and enjoy a clear head. That's higher up on the value list than those 2 a.m. kind of nights." With more people talking about Dry January, and the increased availability of non-alcoholic bever
Crows have become a celebrated bird in Chatham-Kent, but in recent weeks an alarming amount of crow deaths has caught the attention of pathologists in southern Ontario. Brian Stevens, a veterinary pathologist with the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative, told CBC News his team hasn't received their full lab results yet but they believe the crows are likely dying from an avian reovirus. He said it's "a virus that attacks these crows, attacks their internal organs, especially their intestinal tra
BEIJING (Reuters) -Lunar New Year holiday trips inside China surged 74% from last year after authorities scrapped COVID-19 travel curbs, state media reported on Saturday, though the number of journeys was still only half of pre-pandemic levels. Between Jan. 20-26, a week that overlapped with six days of the holiday period, China registered 6,364 COVID-linked deaths, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention said on Saturday, compared to 12,658 a week earlier. Lunar New Year is the most important holiday of the year in China, when huge numbers of people working in prosperous coastal cities head to their hometowns and villages for family reunions.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In an almost forgotten slice of marbled real estate at the Capitol, the Kevin McCarthy era is taking shape in Congress. It was here that the new House speaker was chatting last week with Donald Trump Jr. on the former president’s son’s podcast, their laughter spilling into the halls from behind closed doors. And it was in this modest outpost, with its grand vistas of the National Mall and easy proximity to the action on House floor, that the Republican leader from California ha
One man is dead and one person is in custody after a stabbing in downtown Toronto Sunday afternoon. Toronto police say they received a call reporting a stabbing near Sherbourne Street and Dundas Street East around 3:40 p.m. Emergency crews said they found a man with multiple stab wounds. Paramedics treated him on scene, but police said he died at the scene. One person has since been taken into custody in connection with the stabbing, police say. An investigation is ongoing.
Peaceful protests against police violence were held in several American cities as new videos were released showing officers beating Tyre Nichols three days before he died of his injuries.View on euronews
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mass shootings have commanded public attention on a disturbingly frequent basis across the U.S., from a supermarket slaying in Buffalo, New York, to an elementary school tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, to a recent shooting at a California dance hall. Rather than provoking a unified response from elected officials, each additional shooting seems to be widening the political divide among states on who should be allowed to have guns and what types are OK. “It’s wash, rinse and
YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — A Japanese whaling operator, after struggling for years to promote its controversial products, has found a new way to cultivate clientele and bolster sales: whale meat vending machines. The Kujira (Whale) Store, an unmanned outlet that recently opened in the port town of Yokohama near Tokyo, houses three machines for whale sashimi, whale bacon, whale skin and whale steak, as well as canned whale meat at prices from 1,000 yen ($7.70) to 3,000 yen ($23).

HELSINKI (AP) — The foreign ministers of Sweden and Finland reiterated in separate interviews published Saturday that the process for the two Nordic nations to join NATO is continuing despite Turkey's president saying Sweden shouldn’t expect his country to approve its membership.

Environmentalists in Nova Scotia have long warned of the dangers invasive species of plants and animals can pose to native ecosystems. The European starling is a case in point, according to Kristen Noel, council supervisor at the Nova Scotia Invasive Species Council. The boisterous European starling, a common sight across Nova Scotia with its dark iridescent plumage, is — as its name suggests — not native to North America. Predatory aquatic species like the chain pickerel and smallmouth bass wer
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — Sri Lanka's president suspended Parliament until Feb. 8, when he said he would announced a new set of long-term policies to address a range of issues including an unprecedented economic crisis that has engulfed the Indian Ocean nation for months. President Ranil Wickremesinghe issued an extraordinary decree suspending Parliament from midnight Friday. The government did not give a clear reason for the move, but Wickremesinghe' s office in a statement said his address to
