At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) $999 I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. 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. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. $999 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.

That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Random,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.

3 min read LAS VEGAS — Mobile companies in recent years have shifted away from making huge product announcements at January’s International CES, saving announcements for their own events, or for Mobile World Congress in March. At CES this year we did, however, get a glimpse into what we might be able to expect in the mobile space in the coming year by way of announcements from two big players in the mobile processing space: Qualcomm and Audience.Here’s a look at what 2014 has in store:Better Voice Interaction FeaturesVoice processing company Audience announced the Audience eS700 series at CES, a family of always-on intelligent voice and audio solutions that will enable new levels of voice interaction with your favorite tablets and smartphones.”We believe that dependable, Always-on voice detection and actuation is the next must-have mobile technology,” says Peter Santos, president and chief executive of Audience.Related: The Coolest Tech Startups at CES 2014Audience’s previous processor is already used by a number of mobile devices, and enables your smartphone to continuously listen to its surroundings and respond when you talk to it. The newest version of the processor allows it to be always-on, waking up whenever you say a particular phrase, such as “Ok, Phone, Play Music” in front of your smartphone. With the newest version of the processors your phone will be able to hear you a lot better, cancelling out noise on a busy street or a crowded bar. It will also respond to you immediately, with no need to pause between waking your phone up and asking it to complete a task. That improved performance also comes with a reduction in the amount of battery power needed to make the function work.Audience is sampling it’s processor to partners now, and expects the eS700 series to be included in devices the second half of this year.Connected EverythingFrom app-supported Crock-Pot to a Android-powered fridge, 2014 will be a year of connecting all of our devices together. Qualcomm, the company behind the processor in many Android and Windows devices on the market today announced a new processor at CES, the Snapdragon 802, designed for televisions rather than smartphones.The processor is capable of playing Ultra HD video with simultaneously video conferencing with someone and surfing the web. It’s a powerful chip, that’s going to likely find its way into devices towards the end of year.Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon 602A processor at the show, a processor designed specifically for vehicles that is expected to enable better apps and navigation services in your car.Related: The Connected Home: A Huge Opportunity But Slow to Catch On Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

WASHINGTON — Discount airline Norwegian Air Shuttle has won permission from U.S. federal authorities for its disputed plan to expand flights to the U.S., fuelling the long-simmering battle between legacy airlines and low-cost carriers for transatlantic business.Norwegian Air Shuttle had fought for three years trying to secure permission for its Ireland-based subsidiary to expand transtlantic services.The decision was a defeat for several large U.S. airlines and their labour unions, who argued that Norwegian was getting around Norway’s labour and tax laws by operating new flights with a subsidiary based in Ireland.The Transportation Department said in a regulatory filing Friday that it approved a foreign air-carrier permit for the subsidiary, which is called Norwegian Air International.Regulators said they consulted legal experts in the State Department and Justice Department and found no grounds to reject the application.The decision upheld the Transportation Department’s preliminary approval of the permit in April.Norwegian Air Shuttle already flies between Europe and the U.S. It said the new service by the Irish affiliate would benefit consumers with lower fares and create jobs at U.S. destinations.More news: Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTThe AFL-CIO said it will ask Congress to reverse Friday’s decision.
