Beats Studio Buds drops to a new low of $100 at Amazon



Beats Studio Buds drops to a new low of $100 at Amazon

If you are looking for cheap wireless noise canceling earbuds in the Apple family, forget the Beats Studio Buds. They’re already a great deal at $150, but now you can pick them up on Amazon during Black Friday for just $100, the lowest price we’ve seen yet.

Buy Beats Studio Buds at Amazon – $100

The Studio Buds scored a solid 84 in our Engadget review and also made our list of best wireless earbuds for 2021. The small, comfortable design and IPX4 water resistance make them great for workouts and, most importantly, deliver great sound quality with Beats’ famously punchy base. Active noise cancellation is also solid and they can adjust the volume based on your environment via the active gain feature.

Since the Studio Buds are Apple products, they use the company’s H1 chip. That means they support Apple’s Spatial Audio feature and let you switch between Apple devices with ease — just like you can with a pair of AirPods. However, they are also device independent, so you can use the Fast Pair option to quickly set them up with your Android device. They also work with Find My Device on Android so you can see their last known location.

The main drawbacks are a lack of wireless charging and onboard controls, but most budget wireless buttons don’t have those features. With the deal right now, you won’t find many rivals that can match the features at that $100 price point.

Action for Sport in National Lottery Community Fund grant of £10,000




Action for Sport in National Lottery Community Fund grant of £10,000

A BRADFORD charity that gives donated sports shoes, boots and trainers to underprivileged children in the district has been awarded a £10,000 raffle grant.

Action for Sport has received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the UK’s largest funder of community activities.

The charity was co-founded by Clive Michallat, who has been a scout with the Bantams for over 15 years, and Andrew Kenure and started in March last year. The donations of football boots or trainers from the charity are given to children to use for their own sporting activity.

Mr Kenure said: “Without National Lottery players, projects like ours could not exist.

“Clive and I have made huge personal sacrifices to get this project started, but we couldn’t go ahead without the funding.

“Everything we do, from cleaning the boots to paying for our insurance, costs money and we couldn’t cover all those costs ourselves.

“The funding will also allow us to expand into other areas of Bradford where we have not yet worked and hopefully enter secondary schools as well.”

“And it’s a real ‘sliding door’ moment because you think, what would that boy’s life be like if he didn’t have those boots?

“Would he have developed diabetes over time or gotten into trouble as a teenager? The impact on children’s lives of getting them involved in sports really cannot be underestimated.”

Mr Michallat said: “Recently we went to a school and a parent approached us and said, ‘You just don’t know what you’re doing. My son is like any other kid when he puts on those football boots. His confidence has increased, he has joined a local team and he makes more friends and hangs out with a lot of different people.’”

Joe Dobson, Head of Funding for Yorkshire and Humber at The National Lottery Community Fund, said: “Thanks to the National Lottery players, this vital funding will have a huge impact on the lives of young people in Bradford.

“The past year has been incredibly challenging for communities and we applaud the volunteers and groups who have been a lifeline for so many.

“As we all look to the future, we are excited to see how local groups will use this funding to further support their communities to thrive and prosper.”

Amazon outage disrupts lives and surprises people over cloud dependency




Amazon headquarters in downtown Seattle. (AP)

Normally, an internet-connected feeder provides them with kibble in the afternoon, but the felines’ bowls were empty and clean. The gadget did not work due to a malfunction of Inc’s cloud computing unit.

“We had to feed them manually like in ancient times,” said Mr. Lerner, a 29-year-old small business owner who lives in Marina del Rey, California.

Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud computing service provider in the US. The outage of much of its network lasted most of the day, disrupting several of the tech giant’s services, as well as many of its enterprise customers’ websites and apps.

For many consumers, it was an awareness of the number of Internet-enabled devices they now have in their homes and the extent to which even some of their most basic daily needs depend on a connection to the cloud.

Los Angeles-based Steve Peters couldn’t tell his Roomba robot vacuum to clean up the blueberry muffin crumbs that ended up on his kitchen floor during breakfast. He relies on an app on his phone to beckon the machine.

“I had to resort to a broom and dustpan,” said Mr. Peters, a 60-year-old game experience designer. “It was crazy.”

In St. Louis, Mark Edelstein felt lonely and helpless when he lost access to Amazon’s Alexa service.

“During the day, we chat more than me and my wife,” the 62-year-old business analyst says of the digital assistant, who normally responds to his questions and commands in an instant. He regularly asks him for weather and news updates Alexa had no answers for him on Tuesday morning.

“Since the pandemic, I have become tied to the Alexa system,” said Mr. Edelstein. Without it, “you almost have separation anxiety.”

The Amazon blackout was especially noticeable because it wasn’t limited to a specific type of service. It impacted the video conferencing tool Chime and its home security system Ring, plus many third-party applications that sit on top of Amazon’s cloud, including Ticketmaster and streaming services from Walt Disney Co. and Netflix Inc.

The outage forced Samantha Sherhag to open the blinds at her home in Tampa Bay, Florida. She couldn’t instruct Alexa to turn on the lights. Otherwise, she would have to move furniture to get to the main light switch in her living room.

“I’ve gotten lazy over the past two years,” said Ms. Sherhag, a stay-at-home mom of two young girls. “It’s easier to tell Alexa to turn the lights on and off. She listens better than the kids.”

Ms. Sherhag was also unable to track down a package she was expecting from Zappos containing a pair of sandals for her husband. Zappos is part of Amazon that was also affected by the outage.

“It makes you realize how much you rely on technology,” she said.

Outages that affect a large number of users are quite common. In addition to Amazon, they also recently launched Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. and Roblox Inc. plagued them, causing them modern headaches such as not being able to play video games or share photos with friends.

A global survey published in September by Uptime Institute LLC, a provider of data center reliability consulting services, found that 69% of data center operators experienced some type of outage in the past three years. Human error played a role in 78% of those incidents and 44% had major financial, reputational and other consequences.

Due to the AWS outage, college student Sofia Echeverry was unable to access Canvas, a service she and her classmates use to submit homework assignments, view grades, and message professors at her school, the University of Florida. She is now behind on projects and essays.

“Everyone is now in finals mode,” she said. “If Canvas ever had the worst time to crash, this would be it.”

Ms. Echeverry, a 19-year-old sophomore linguistics student, described the outage as stressful and frustrating. “I’ll be in the library a lot longer than I thought because of that,” she said.

It is not always immediately clear when there is a malfunction. David Danto was initially confused when the waterproof Internet-enabled device he recently set up in his shower wouldn’t play the radio news station he’d requested. The 59-year-old thought he might have installed it incorrectly or that his home internet had gone down.

“When you first realize things aren’t working, you think it’s on your side, so you start taking out your router and looking at your connections in the house,” says Mr. Danto, a tech specialist in Millburn, NJ

When the Alexa-powered lights in his house weren’t working either, he checked the Downdetector website, which tracks website outages, and found he wasn’t alone. At around 10:45 a.m. ET, it showed nearly 11,300 reports of outages. “It was a sigh of relief,” said Mr. Danto, but the experience also made him realize how much he relies on AWS. “You’re starting to worry, how vulnerable are we to this one service? It’s causing panic.”

Amazon blames the outage on faulty network devices. But to Ben Jackson, a 41-year-old cyber defense manager in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, it seemed like the Grinch was responsible, as it prevented his light-up Christmas trees and Santa and reindeer inflatables from turning on at sunset while he’d programmed them to do so. He eventually resolved the issue through a working app.

“I’m very happy that this is the only thing that is broken at the moment,” he said.
