Deal Alert: Grab a Refurbished Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL for $300 off

How-To Geek - 2 hours 21 sec ago

You’re going to be hearing a lot of phone news this week. If the excitement’s already forcing you into phone-buying mode, then you should steer yourself toward this Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL deal.

Now, it’s no secret that we love the Pixel 3. It’s one of the best premium Android phones, it has a great battery, a vivid screen, and it works well with Google Assistant. But the retail price of the Pixel 3 (or any new phone, for that matter) can turn things sour very quickly.

That’s why we’re always excited to see a discounted Pixel 3. Right now, Woot is selling the Just Black Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with 64 GB of storage at a $300 discount. In case you don’t feel like doing the math, that’s $550 for the regular Pixel 3, and $600 for the Pixel 3 XL. But again, it’s only for the black model, so if you were hoping for a different color, you’re out of luck.

Note that these are refurbished phones, but they at least come with Woot’s 90-day limited warranty. If you’re into it, hit the button below to jump on this deal before it’s gone.

Deal Alert: Get a Refurbished Dyson Ball 2 Animal for $275 ($125 Off)

How-To Geek - 2 hours 10 min ago
Dyson

We think the Dyson Ball 2 Animal is the best overall vacuum you can get for the pet-filled home. And today Amazon is selling a refurbished edition for a steep discount at $275.

Dyson offers some of the best vacuums on the market, and will quickly pick up so much dirt you’re left wondering how you survived in such a sick and filthy home. Unfortunately, the only thing that sucks more than the vacuum itself is the pricing. The Dyson Ball 2 Animal is usually $400 for instance, and no matter how much fur it picks up that can be hard to swallow.

Thankfully, Amazon is offering a refurbished model on steep discount today. Amazon tests and inspects these units for any defects, and makes any repairs as necessary, and so guarantees a “like new in working condition” state.

The vacuum comes with all its accessories (including the animal-specific attachments), but may not arrive in the original box and only includes a six month Dyson warranty instead of the usual five-year warranty. That said, we ordered the previous model refurbished in 2017, and it is still going strong.

If you’ve always wanted a Dyson but couldn’t justify a $400 price tag, today may be your day to treat yourself—to a cleaner house that is.

Where Are the Admin Tools for Office 365?

How-To Geek - 2 hours 10 min ago

For most people, Microsoft Office 365 is a bunch of applications like Outlook, Word, Excel, etc. But if you have your own domain, you can also manage your users, groups, policies, and more. Let’s take a look.

We’ve covered all the apps that come with Office 365, but it’s far more than just a set of discrete productivity applications. It’s also an enterprise management system that contains all sorts of tools like Azure Active Directory, usage reports, and a whole slew of security tools that most people know nothing about. These tools live in the Admin Center, which (for most users) will be available if you have a domain (e.g., AcmeRockets.com) and Microsoft provides the email for that domain (e.g., Rob@AcmeRockets.com).

For personal users, the most common way this happens is if you buy a domain from a registrar/host like GoDaddy or 1&1 and they offer Office 365-hosted email as part of the package.

RELATED: The Best Places to Buy a Domain Name

You’ll need to log into the Office 365 account that contains your hosted email to see the Admin option. The login page can be a bit difficult to find sometimes because it often lives on your domain host’s site, not the main Microsoft site. If you try to sign-in at Office.com, it’s usually smart enough to know where your domain is registered and redirect you to the correct login page, though. But if you can’t find it, contact your domain host, and they’ll help you.

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be able to see the Admin option in the list of apps on the main Office 365 page, and also in the app launcher available from the nine dots.

Click on the Admin app, and you’ll be taken to the Admin Center, where you can see a menu of options on the left-hand side.

Mashable - 2 hours 17 min ago

No it's not Amazon Prime Day. That's not for around another five months. There are Amazon devices on sale though, and you are unlikely to find a better price even on Amazon's special day.

You can now save £10 on an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K with an all-new Alexa voice remote, available for £39.99. You can also pick up a regular Amazon Fire TV Stick for £29.99, reduced from £39.99, if you aren't 4K-ready.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is Amazon's most powerful streaming media stick and comes with a new WiFi antenna design that's optimised for 4K Ultra HD streaming. You can launch and control all your favourite movies and TV programmes with the Alexa voice remote, too. Read more...

Here’s Where and When to Watch the Samsung Galaxy S10 Event Today

How-To Geek - 2 hours 25 min ago
Samsung

It’s almost time for Mobile World Congress, and you know what that means…it’s exactly time for Samsung to steal everyone’s thunder with its own event. The first Galaxy Unpacked product reveal of the year will be later today.

As usual, the Unpacked press event will be livestreamed to the internet, so gadget addicts can watch the worldwide reveal in real time. The event will take place in San Francisco at 11 AM local Pacific time, which is 2 PM Eastern and  7:00 PM UTC. The video will be live on this Samsung site.

New flagship phones are an inevitability. The latest iterations on the main line, the Galaxy S10 and S10+, have already been leaked for weeks. In addition to the usual hardware and software bumps, we’re expecting a new “hole punch” front camera design that replaces the common “notch” with a small hole in the upper right corner of the curved screen, and triple rear camera modules on at least the larger phone. The Galaxy S10e is expected to be a cheaper version of this design, with the hole punch camera intact, analogous to the iPhone XR.

Samsung

What might be more interesting is a reveal of Samsung’s upcoming folding phone design, rumored to be called either the Galaxy F or Galaxy Fold. Samsung showed a prototype of this folding screen device (a smaller screen on the outside with a large inner screen that folds open like a book) in November of last year. Samsung’s teaser video means a short appearance, if not a full technical breakdown, is in store.

Since this folding phone hasn’t been seen at the FCC for wireless testing and other press materials haven’t leaked, it seems likely that it isn’t quite ready for a full retail rollout, as the S10 phones are expected to receive within a month of their announcement. Samsung is so ready to get the Galaxy S10 rolling that you can actually reserve a chance to reserve a pre-order of the new phones before they’re even announced.

We’ll be talking about everything Samsung announces later today, so keep it locked here for full details as soon as they drop.

These leaked images might have just revealed Samsung's 'Galaxy Fold' foldable phone

Mashable - 2 hours 33 min ago

Are you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see Samsung's foldable phone with bated breath? 

Well, wonder no more because hours ahead of Samsung's Unpacked event, alleged images of the "Galaxy Fold" might have just revealed the phone in almost all of its glory.

Deal Alert: Get a SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB MicroSD Card for Just $50

How-To Geek - 2 hours 40 min ago

Do yourself a favor, stop using the internal storage on your phone or camera. You can buy a massive 128 GB MicroSD card for 50 percent off right now.

Right now, B&H is selling a 128 GB SanDisk MicroSD card for just $50—that’s half of its retail price. And don’t worry, it comes with a USB 3.0 SD card reader, so you’ll be able to transfer files right out of the box.

Most MicroSD cards that get heavy discounts have poor read and write speeds. As a result, they open and transfer files very slowly. Luckily, this SanDisk card is an exception to the rule. It has a read speed of 275 MB/s and a write speed of 100 MB/s, so it’s great for quickly transferring or opening large files, like video games and high-resolution movies. Plus, it has a UHS Speed Class 3 rating, so it’s capable of running video for a 4K monitor.

An inexpensive MicroSD card (like this one) may be perfect for your camera, your Raspberry Pi project, your Nintendo Switch, or even your phone (if it has a MicroSD card slot, of course). But B&H is ending this deal tonight, so don’t sleep on it for too long, or you know, at all.

Apple plans to merge iOS and macOS apps by 2021, report says

Mashable - 2 hours 40 min ago

For years, Apple has been bringing its mobile, desktop and tablet platforms closer together. Features like Handoff and Continuity Camera make it easier to start working on an iPhone and continue on the Mac, for example. 

But the company still keeps Mac, iPhone, and (to some extent) iPad apps separate. In 2021, this might change. According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple plans to enable developers to create apps that work on all of the company's major platforms.

YouTube is 'actively enabling' the spread of exploitative content, report finds

Mashable - 2 hours 48 min ago

Videos featuring exposed genitals and other body parts of children as young as five are pervasive on YouTube and watched and commented on in huge numbers, a Wired report has found.

The videos, some of which generate millions of views, are often accompanied by predatory comments from people sharing the timestamps of when genitals are exposed or when a child does the splits.

Per Wired, some of the videos in question are exploitative in nature, while others are videos of children — sometimes uploaded by the children themselves — doing regular activities such as yoga and gymnastics. Read more...

Upgrade your car's emergency preparedness with these 5 products

Mashable - 2 hours 54 min ago

You have snacks in your car for when you go hungry in the middle of a traffic jam, a charger for when your phone dies, and a spare tire for when you accidentally hit a pothole. Heck, you might even have a ton of other survival items chilling in your trunk that can allow you to live in your car for days.

And while it's always handy to keep a spare outfit in your car in case of potential fashion faux pas, your extra pair of jeans won't exactly help you when your battery conks out, or when you get stuck in a ditch in the middle of nowhere with zero phone signal. When that happens, you'll want to have the right tools to get yourself out of emergency situations. Read more...
