Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Gaming The Konami TurboGrafx-16 mini game console harkens back to the company’s 1980s home game console. Konami Konami Digital Entertainment on Tuesday took the wraps off the TurboGrafx-16 mini. The gaming console is a compact version of the company’s 1980s version.The console is small enough to fit into gamers’ palms but comes with a full-size controller, the Japanese game giant said Tuesday at the E3 game expo in Los Angeles. The console will come preloaded with an initial handful of retro-like games, including R-Type, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit, Ys Book I & II, Dungeon Explorer and Alien Crush.The TurboGrafx-16 mini will be released in North America, while variants called PC Engine Core Grafx and PC Engine mini will be released in Europe and Japan, respectively. Details about pricing, availability and additional games planned weren’t made available. TurboGrafx-16 was a cartridge-based home video game released in the US in 1989. Competing with the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, it featured an 8-bit CPU and an optional add-on that stored the games on CD-ROM. The line was discontinued in 1994. $520 at HP Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. 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.

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. Share your voice Read DJI Osmo Action preview Mini,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.

Parineeti chopraVarinder ChawlaParineeti Chopra was recently spotted coming out of a salon. While shutterbugs were waiting outside to click her, the actress for some unknown reasons, was seen hiding her face.Wearing a black transparent top with trousers, Parineeti was seen in a hurry to enter her car, and escape the lens as soon as possible. A video has come out that shows her first rushing back into the salon as soon as she spotted paparazzi waiting outside.She then comes out, but quickly enters her car, and is seen desperately trying to hide her face with her hair and hands. The video is out on Instagram, and people are wondering what made her hide her face so desperately.While some suggested that the actress wanted to avoid being clicked as she was without make-up, some others thought there is something fishy about it. Nonetheless, it is only Parineeti who knows the reason behind her act.On the work front, she was recently seen in Kesari alongside Akshay Kumar. Although she had a small role in the film, the actress was glad to be a part of such a big project. Parineeti has a number of upcoming films in her kitty including Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Jabariya Jodi and Saina Nehwal biopic.Watch the video below:

What was your high school mascot’s name? Your first pet’s name?If you have an online account at a retailer like Amazon.com, you’ve probably run into such questions when opening an account or when trying to recover one of the dozens of passwords you juggle in your head. Online businesses everywhere have embraced the technique, which is called knowledge-based authentication.Theoretically, the answers to these questions are so personal and obscure that knowing them proves you are you. Experts say, however, that the technology could end up helping hackers compromise your online accounts more easily.Knowledge-based authentication doesn’t replace user names and passwords; it’s an extra layer of security on top of such schemes, since hackers who stumble across your log-in credentials won’t easily figure out the name of your high-school sweetheart. Collecting log-in information and answers to secret questions from your computer requires keylogging software, making it harder for malicious hackers to triumph.Phishers Get Close to HomeJon Fisher, whose firm, Bharosa (acquired by Oracle last year), develops questions for companies to use, says knowledge-based authentication adds a step for account access. “Phishing both those pieces of information is fairly sophisticated.”But scammers have adapted, adding secret questions to their decoy pages, says Lance James, CTO of fraud research company Secure Science. Bank phishing sites may include their own fraudulent drop-down lists that capture people’s answers, which bad guys can then use to hack real accounts.Even when hackers don’t resort to subterfuge, these nuggets of information can be easier targets than passwords. Mark Burnett, author of Hacking the Code, has observed that seemingly random questions such as “What was the make of your first car?” have a narrow list of answers–in the case of autos, 38 major makers–that hackers can use to try to break into an account, versus a vast multitude of password combinations. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. March 25, 2008
