Talk to friends and family with $100 off two Portal+ smart displays

Along with the introduction of the new Portal Go back in September, Facebook also announced a new, redesigned Portal+. It's the top of the Portal line, and right now you can save $100 when you buy two. That means you can get two Portal+ devices for just $598 total instead of the $698 it would normally cost. You also get free shipping and the ability to ship to multiple addresses free if you want to send one to a family member or friend.

This is a great deal that applies to every member of the Facebook Portal lineup. You can even mix and match and get a Portal+ for yourself and a Portal Go for your family. If saving money is the ultimate goal, go with the Portal TV. It only costs $149 to begin with, so saving $100 off two means you're essentially getting a second device for just an extra $50. You can also find this sale at Amazon.

Facebook Portal+ smart display | $100 off 2

The new and improved Portal+ is eligible for this sale and offers the best value considering it's the most expensive product in the Portal lineup. You can get two of the smart displays for less than $600.

$100 off at Facebook Portal

The Portal+ includes a large, 14-inch display with a 1440p pixel resolution. It can even tilt for better angles while you're on a video call, and much like the other Facebook Portal devices its smart camera can follow you around while you're working or doing a presentation.

Sound won't be an issue either, as the Portal+ has room-filling stereo speakers. That's great whether you're talking with family and friends or using the display to stream your favorite music (works with most major streaming services like Spotify and Pandora).

The Portal+ does video calls better than other devices, and it really shines in that functionality. Because of that, it works with a wide variety of third party programs like Zoom and including Facebook's own Messenger and WhatsApp. You can even use the Portal+ to spice up your background with an AR library that includes special effects and masks.

If privacy is a concern for you, you can easily disable the camera and the mic. You can even block the lens withan integrated camera cover. Plus, all calls through Messenger or WhatsApp are encrypted.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
