Prime Day might be the smartest time of the year to buy that new TV. Hear us out.
Waiting until Black Friday excludes a few key TV situations in the upcoming months. Grabbing a 4K TV now means you'll be set for football games that won't require guessing where the ball is, Halloween movies that don't require getting lost in shadow scenes, and an all-day fireplace in 4K on Thanksgiving. Scoring a TV during Prime Day 2021 specifically sets you up for a sweet Olympics experience.
This Prime Day, Amazon has two main pockets of TV deals: Its own mid-size Fire TV-edition TVs and a few juicy 2021 releases like Samsung's Neo QLED and LG's C1 series. Expect affordable 40- or 50-inch TVs to get even cheaper with Walmart's Deal for Days event and expect savings on 60-, 70-, and 80-inch OLEDs (similar to Amazon's target) at Best Buy's High Tech Flash Sale.

Save $70: The new Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus tablet is on sale for the first time for Prime Day — get it for just over $100.
A luxe new member of Amazon's latest tablet release is officially on sale for the first time. Of course it's for Prime Day, and it's pretty major: nearly 40% off.
The Fire HD 10 Plus tablet has some of Amazon's most advanced tablet specs, gaining it love on the internet for being a sweet value. With the MSRP of the baseline iPad dropping eerily close to that of a tablet known for being budget-friendly like the Fire line, Amazon had to do some serious spec work. The HD 10 Plus adds more RAM to that of the regular 10 model (just 1 GB more, but still), as well as wireless charging. The 1080p display is brighter, adds a soft touch slate coating to the back's exterior, and should still get you 10 to 12 hours on one charge. Read more...

In 2020, Prime Day was pushed back to October instead of its usual July date because of the coronavirus pandemic. This year, it's again not in July so as to not interfere with the Olympics. In 2021, Prime Day runs June 21 through 22, which means the deals are now live.
Even though Prime Day is an Amazon event, other big retailers had to get a piece of the pie as well by running their own savings events. Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and more are having impressive sales as well. Read more...
Everyone knows that dropping mints into a bottle of soda is the height of don't-try-this-at-home entertainment — but it turns out there's a way to make this popular home-brewed experiment even more fun.
All you need is a camera capable of filming in extreme slow motion and a robotic arm.
In the video above, Gav from The Slow Mo Guys combines his trusty phantom with a speedy robotic assistant in order to track mints tumbling into colourful fizzy liquid from a variety of different angles.
"It's like I've got a small drone and I'm just flying above this plume of liquid," says Gav, shortly after a shot of the robot-held camera tracking directly above an erupting pink fizz plume. Read more...
Mashable is celebrating Pride Month by exploring the modern LGBTQ world, from the people who make up the community to the spaces where they congregate, both online and off.
We've come a long way in advancing LGBTQ rights since the first Pride march was held in New York City in 1970, from the repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in 2010 and the achievement of marriage equality via the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015, to last summer's high court decision outlawing discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace.
Then there's the Education Department's recent guidance that extends Title IX protections to gay and transgender students in an effort to protect them from discrimination at school. Read more...
A new dark Scandinavian crime thriller? Creepy little figurines being left at crime scenes? From the creator of The Killing?!

Why conduct a regular interview when you can go rollerskating together?
Pulling on their own custom Timberland skates for some "Good Wholesome Fun" at a roller rink, Desus and Mero chatted to artist and excellent rollerskater Lil Nas X about handling the recent conservative backlash to his music video for "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," his infamous "Satan Shoes," and his Saturday Night Live wardrobe malfunction.
"Did you ever think that the outrage was going to reach the level it did? Because Fox News was on you every 10 minutes," says Desus.
"Even when I was playing the video I was like, oh this is definitely going to hit Fox News," responds Lil Nas X. "I definitely didn't expect the outrage as much as it was at all, especially governors tweeting me, like, you're a governor. You don't have anything better to do?" Read more...

The relationship between Chinese smartphone makers OnePlus and Oppo has never been easy to discern. Over the years, OnePlus made considerable efforts to distance itself from Oppo, even though it was obvious that the phones from the two companies share some DNA.
Now, it seems that this relationship will become a lot more straightforward: OnePlus will be a sub-brand of Oppo.
In a note recently posted on company forums, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said that his company will "further integrate" with Oppo, giving it "more resources" to create better products and bring faster updates for its users. He did say OnePlus would continue to operate independently, however, so it was still a bit unclear just how tightly the two companies would be connected. Read more...
