Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. 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. Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) Now playing: Watch this: $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express Tags 7 PayPal Uber,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. 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. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

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

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.

Getty Images PayPal on Friday revealed that it’ll pump $500 million into Uber as it extends a partnership the companies have maintained since 2013.As part of the extension, the online payment company will look into developing the ride-hailing service’s digital wallet.PayPal boss Dan Schulman mentioned that deal in a LinkedIn post early Friday.”This is another significant milestone on our journey to be a platform partner of choice, helping to enable global commerce by connecting the world’s leading marketplaces and payment networks,” he wrote.Uber didn’t immediately respond to request for comment on the PayPal announcement. Earlier this month, the company’s self-driving tech group got a $1 billion investment led by Toyota and it publicly filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission for a potential $120 billion initial public offering. On Friday, it set an IPO price range of $44 to $50 a share. $6 at Tidal Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) $155 at Google Express Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X Tags Best Buy $999 $60 at Best Buy See at Amazon The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives.

Progress 66 cargo craft are pictured as the International Space Station orbits about 250 miles above EarthNASANASA, the United States space agency had previously revealed that Christina Koch and Anne McClain will perform the first-ever spacewalk on the International Space Station (ISS) today. However, the space agency cancelled the plan last minute stating that the spacesuits were not fit for the astronauts and they replaced McClain with Nick Hague.The unexpected move from NASA has now triggered lots of speculations and conspiracy theorist Tyler Glockner claimed that it was an appearance of a UFO near the International Space Station which compelled NASA to change the plan. In a recent video uploaded to his YouTube channel ‘Secureteam 10’, Glockner revealed that it might be some kind of extraterrestrial interference which derailed NASA’s plans to conduct the spacewalk.Glockner also revealed that ISS live feed was cut off unexpectedly when the UFO starts appearing in the screen. He added that such events have happened in the past.”This is another example of NASA cutting the live feed after a UFO appeared while one of the astronauts is out doing a spacewalk. You will notice for the good portion of the video there is no UFO. The UFO appears just above the Earth’s horizon line and I want you guys to notice that up until the UFO appears, the video feed is pretty stable. I want you guys to watch here, right as the UFO appears you’ll notice the live feed get more and more interference until they finally decide to cut it,” said Glockner in the video. Secureteam10The video uploaded by Glockner has already gone viral on YouTube and as of now, it has racked up more than 1,00,000 views. After watching the video, viewers of ‘Secureteam10’ put forward various theories explaining the strange sighting.”Did anyone else notice that the astronaut dropped his drill and the next feed shows he’s holding a camera looking device. Which, I believe the astronaut warned NASA to drop the live feed,” commented LL Guerra, a YouTube user.”The NASA video interference looked suspiciously like a VHS cassette on a dirty head, or otherwise analog, rather than digital interference with pixelation and square “holes” in the image. Ever watch a DVD with a scratch?” commented Aaron, another YouTuber.This is not the first time that anomalies are being spotted near the International Space Station. A few days back, self-proclaimed extraterrestrial researcher Scott C Waring claimed to have spotted a cloaking alien spaceship near the ISS. In his website post, Waring revealed that he spotted the object from the NASA live feed and argued that the flying ship was just 50 meters away from the space station.
