Dealmaster: Take $40 off a 32GB Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet

Ars Technica - 23 min 15 sec ago

Enlarge (credit: TechBargains)

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have a fresh batch of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by another round of discounts on Amazon devices, including a deal that brings the Fire HD 10 tablet down to $110. That's $40 off its usual going rate.

The big caveat here: the deals are only applicable to Amazon Prime subscribers. If you're already one of those (or if you have a free trial), the Fire HD 10 is still one of the better big-screen slates on the cheap. Its 10.1-inch, 1920x1200 resolution display is a step above tablets in this range (albeit a few steps below an iPad), making it a solid choice for basic video viewing or comic book reading. It runs fine, and it gets a decent 8-10 hours of battery life on average. It recently gained the ability to work like an Echo Show, too. You'll have to do a little legwork to get the Google Play Store onto it, if that's what you're after. But that's nothing a quick Google search can't fix.

Other ongoing deals include the 4K Fire TV for $40, the Kindle Paperwhite for $80, and the cheapo Fire 7 tablet for $35. If you don't have Prime, fear not, as the Dealmaster also has discounts on Xbox One controllers, Samsung SSDs and microSD cards, some good Bluetooth audio gear, and more. Have a look for yourself below.

Pictures leak of the “Google Home Hub,” Google’s version of a smart display

Ars Technica - 33 min 37 sec ago

MySmartPrice

Google's big hardware event is coming October 9, and we're getting a clearer picture of what to expect from the show as the days go by. The event is promoted as the "Pixel 3 launch event," but the company's previous two hardware events featured five or more product announcements. Besides the Pixel 3, a Pixelbook 2 is a good option, and with the launch of Google's Smart Display software on third-party hardware earlier this year, it seems inevitable that we'll soon see a first-party Google Smart Display.

As luck would have it, today MySmartPrice has scored pictures of the "Google Home Hub," a product that is clearly Google's flagship hardware for its Smart Display software. The device has a 7-inch touchscreen and basically looks like a 16:9 tablet mounted to Google Home Max. Some of the pictures, which look like a leaked store listing, show a few more specs: 802.11ac Wi-Fi at 2.4 and 5GHz, Bluetooth, an "Ambient light and color sensor," a "full-range speaker for crystal clear sound," and "far-field voice recognition." The listing shows the display available in two colors ("chalk" and "charcoal"), with Google's traditional mute switch on the back and what looks to be a video chat camera on the front.

Judge: FCC can’t hide records that may explain net neutrality comment fraud

The Federal Communications Commission must stop withholding records that may shed light on fraudulent comments submitted in the FCC's net neutrality repeal proceeding, a US District Court judge ruled last week.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed in September 2017 by freelance journalist Jason Prechtel, who sued the FCC after it failed to provide documents in response to his Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) request. Prechtel sought data that would identify people who made bulk comment uploads; many of the uploads contained fraudulent comments submitted in other people's names without their knowledge.

Prechtel called the ruling "a huge victory for transparency over an issue that has gone unanswered by the FCC and its current leadership for too long."

Report: Tesla facing criminal probe over “funding secured” tweet

Elon Musk's August 7 tweet that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private has become the subject of a criminal investigation by the Justice Department, Bloomberg reports, citing two anonymous sources. The involvement of the Justice Department would be significant because the Securities and Exchange Commission—which has been investigating the case for several weeks—only has the power to bring civil charges.

Tesla's share price dropped by about 6 percent in the minutes after Bloomberg reported the news.

While Musk's initial tweet claimed he had "funding secured" to buy out existing shareholders, he soon admitted he didn't actually have anything in writing. Days before the tweet, he had a meeting with Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund and emerged from the meeting convinced that the Saudis would be willing to fund a deal.
