Usually a good TV is a good TV, but if you plan on playing a lot of games on your set then this is the model for you. The LG C1 (8/10, WIRED recommended) has an OLED panel, which means deep blacks and better contrast, and supports up to 120 Hz for smooth gameplay. It can even use Nvidia’s G-Sync if you plug it into a gaming PC. This deal has been around for a while, but the price is still good.
Most TVs have some sort of smart operating system, but this model conveniently has both Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can find what you want to watch with your voice, no matter which assistant you prefer. You can also ask simple questions, such as “What’s the weather like?” or “How tall is Jeff Goldblum?” This historically low price has been around since the beginning of November.
Audio and game deals
If you’re eyeing an expensive soundbar like our favorite luxury model here, the bigger the discount, the better. The Sennheiser Ambeo Soundar is a match of the lowest price we’ve seen yet. It’s only been so heavily discounted a few other times. In our testing, the audio managed to sound like speakers were scattered around the room, even though everything is in one (huge) bar.
One of the biggest appeals of a soundbar is the simplicity of improving the sound quality without having to set up multiple gadgets. Yamaha’s YAS-209 doubles this allure by packing a great sound system and Amazon Alexa in one bar and one wireless subwoofer. That means it is both a soundbar and a smart speaker. No wonder it’s one of our favorites. The price drops to $300 quite often, but bounces back to $350 just as often. We have yet to see it go lower than this.
Sony’s PlayStation Plus membership is required if you want to play games online, but even if you don’t, it’s a great way to get free games every month. A 12 month subscription tends to drop in price every year around the holidays, so now is the time to close for 2022.
Wired mice trade the wireless convenience of wireless models for more reliability and less latency. In most cases this may not be a problem, but if you play games competitively it can literally be a life saver. This Razer Viper mouse is ambidextrous, so anyone can use it. It’s significantly cheaper than its wireless cousin, one of our favorite gaming mice. The $40 Black Friday deal price beats other discounts we’ve seen.
Phone and Headphone Deals
Since Google’s Pixel 6 came out, it’s been hard to beat for value, and that was our main concern when we first reviewed the OnePlus 8T. It has good cameras, a beautiful screen and a battery that lasts all day. We just wanted to see it drop in price a bit. At $500, not only is it $100 cheaper than usual, but it also undercuts Google’s flagship.
The OnePlus 9 Pro (8/10, WIRED recommended) made our honorable mentions list for the best Android phones after OnePlus improved the cameras that were often lackluster on previous models. Now it’s down to an all-time low price of $699. You can get a free pair of OnePlus Buds Pro when you order the phone directly through OnePlus.
See ads on Facebook comparing Covid vaccine to Holocaust
Facebook has sold ads promoting anti-vaccine messages, comparing the US government’s response to Covid-19 with Nazi Germany, casting doubt on the outcome of the 2020 election and even encouraging political violence.
The ads were run by merchandise companies that have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Facebook in recent years.
On Monday, Fox News personality Lara Logan caused outrage by dr. Compare Anthony Fauci to an infamous Nazi doctor known as the “Angel of Death” – around the same time ads ran on Facebook promoting a sweater with the words, “I’m originally from America, but I currently live in 1941, Germany.”
Another advertisement compared vaccine rollouts to the Holocaust – falsely and ridiculously implying that they are part of an effort to massacre people on a massive scale.
The ad was run by a Facebook page called ‘Ride the Red Wave’. Earlier this year the page ran ads for a t-shirt with the words, “Make hanging traitors great again.”
Facebook has made more than $280,000 from “Ride the Red Wave” ads since May, according to data reviewed by CNN. The page has fewer than 10,000 followers, but by paying Facebook, the people running the page could potentially reach millions of Americans.
“Next Level Goods,” another page, run by a different company, has spent more than $500,000 on Facebook ads since 2019. The company regularly uses Facebook to promote vaccine t-shirts.
One ad purchase in late August, it promoted a t-shirt that read “Proudly Unpoisoned” next to an image of a syringe. The company paid Facebook about $2,500 to reach up to 450,000 Facebook users with the anti-vaccine ad. According to Facebook data, the ads were most viewed by Facebook users in Texas, Florida and California.
A spokesperson for Meta, Facebook’s parent company, said the ads comparing the US’s Covid-19 response to Nazi Germany compared vaccines to the Holocaust, and the ad suggesting the vaccine was poison went against the grain. Facebook’s policy on vaccine misinformation.
However, since these infringing ads ran on its platform, Facebook’s detection systems seemed to miss them.
CNN also asked about the ad that read “Make Hanging Traitors Great Again,” but Facebook didn’t say that ad broke its policy.
Facebook has publicly touted the seemingly positive role it plays in encouraging Americans to get vaccinated. Guy Rosen, vice president of company integrity, wrote a blog post in July rebuked President Joe Biden for claiming platforms like Facebook are killing people. Biden withdrew later from the claim.
Laura Edelson, a researcher at NYU who tracks ads on Facebook, told CNN that Facebook doesn’t manually review all of the ads it sells — one of the reasons why ads that violate the rules are shown on the platform.
Facebook, she said, also appears to have a lighter moderation approach to ads from seemingly commercial pages, such as those that sell t-shirts, compared to pages associated with political campaigns.
“You’ll find a lot more of the really strong rhetoric on a t-shirt, a lot more than you’ll see in a direct persuasion ad,” she told CNN.

Severe weather warning for UK as Storm Barra arrives Tuesday | Extreme weather
The Met office has issued severe weather warnings for most of the UK ahead of the arrival of Storm Barra on Tuesday, as thousands of homes are without power for more than a week after Storm Arwen.
England, Wales and Northern Ireland have yellow wind warnings on Tuesday and a yellow snow warning in southern and western Scotland.
Storm Barra, a deep low pressure area flooding from the Atlantic and the second storm of the season, is expected to bring the strongest winds and impact to the Republic of Ireland.
Two to two inches of snow is expected to fall across England and Scotland, but meteorologists said it could reach 10cm, especially in parts of the southern highlands and highlands.
In the UK gusts of 45-50 mph are expected, with winds of 60-70 mph in unprotected coastal locations, which could affect engineers’ ability to restore power to homes.
The Energy Networks Association (ENA) said there were 3,190 homes waiting to be reconnected at 2 p.m. on Sunday, up from 4,025 homes on Sunday morning.
The majority of affected homes are in the north east of England, the ENA added.
During a visit to a Northern Powergrid call center in Penshaw near Sunderland, the energy secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, warned energy companies that the government will review their operations following continued power outages caused by storm Arwen nine days ago.
“I think we can make the system a lot more resilient. We will conduct an evaluation, we will see if the distribution companies have sufficient infrastructure, we can even take enforcement action if necessary,” he said.
After visiting crews in Weardale, County Durham, the energy secretary said engineers have been working in freezing temperatures to restore power: “There are very challenging conditions.
“There is a lot of ice, sleet, snow and it is very difficult for the engineers to get the vital infrastructure ready.
“Some communication wasn’t brilliant. It’s very difficult in a center or hub like this to know what’s happening on the ground, but I think it’s getting better.
“I think the engineers are doing a great job, we’ve also got the military out and they’re all working together very effectively, but there’s still a few hundred people who are still without power and I think that’s really unacceptable.”
Kwarteng said he disagreed that the response to Storm Arwen’s power cuts would have been faster if they had occurred in the south east of England: “The physical infrastructure, layout and landscape is very different. One of the specific reasons we haven’t been able to get people back on the power supply is the weather conditions and they are very challenging [with] people in sparsely populated, very rural areas, and that’s a challenge,” he said.
