The single best Cyber Monday Chromebook deal is right here

While there are dozens of Black Friday Chromebook deals to choose from today, there are few deals that are universally great for anyone and everyone. So whether you just want to try out Chrome OS and see what all the fuss is about, you need a starter Chromebook for your kid, or you just want a tablet that'll stay updated for seven years and looks great for Netflix and Disney+, Lenovo has the only Chromebook deal you need.

You might not have ever heard of the Lenovo 10e, but I guarantee you've heard of its prettier, two-tone twin: the Lenovo Chromebook Duet. The 10e shares the same steady performance, great screen quality, and portable size as the Duet, but the shell and the glass have been ruggedized, and the price has slashed dropped 65 to 70%.

Lenovo 10e Chromebook Tablet (Save up to $265)

This is the classroom-tested version of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, with a 400-nit, 1,920x1,200px touchscreen, long battery life, and unlike the Duet, this version still has a headphone jack. You can buy just the tablet for $99, but I recommend grabbing the keyboard bundle for $139 for a better out-of-box experience.

From $99 at Lenovo

Rather than a Gorilla Glass touchscreen, the Lenovo 10e uses Dragontail Pro, a popular alternative to Gorilla Glass that boasts 30% better resistance to corner drops, which is essential to a Chrome tablet with edge-to-edge-glass. Rest assured, the screen is still 400 nits brightness for easy visibility outside in the shade. Of course, 400 nits will still wash out in direct sunlight, but for $99, this screen puts most Chromebook screens under $400 to shame.

Another significant upgrade is that rather than having to rely on Bluetooth headphones, you can plug in good, old-fashioned wired headphones or earbuds when you're on a Netflix binge or listening to a video call. One of the few drawbacks of the Lenovo Fuet is that the speakers weren't very strong, so headphones are essential for YouTube marathons.

You still have access to all your favorite Android apps through Google Play, but unlike Android tablets that are slow to receive updates (and receive 3 to 4 years of updates at most), the Lenovo 10e will get monthly system and security updates direct from Google until June 2028, its AUE date. This means that if you take care of it, this compact tablet could last you for almost a decade.

Lenovo sells the tablet by itself or in a bundle with the kickstand folio case, and I highly recommend buying the case bundle, as it's getting harder and harder to find aftermarket. While Chrome OS is getting easier and easier to use tablet-only, it's still best when connected to a keyboard, given all the keyboard shortcuts you can take advantage of.

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
