It’s hard to find a projector that hits all the right targets: affordable, portable, with a bright display and crisp resolution to boot. But for only $89, the AuKing Mini Projector comes pretty close.

The brand new portable projector, whose updated model came out earlier this year, supports up to 1080-p and 2600 lumens, impressive specs for such a small device at this price point. Usually retailing for $99, this multimedia projector is already one of the most affordable multimedia devices on the market, but this limited-time deal shaves the price by another 10%.

What’s particularly impressive about the AuKing is that it’s able to maintain such high resolution with larger images — it can projects a screen up to 170 inches wide without sacrificing deep contrasts and bright colors. Plus, a variety of ports on the right face — supporting HDMI, VGA, USB, AV and SD cards — means you can easily hook it up with any streaming device you already have, such as an affordable Roku Streaming Stick.

You don’t have to look any further than its more than 15,000 rave reviews on Amazon to see how the best-seller actually performs. In addition to its sharp display and pocket-sized portability (it measures at 8 x 8 inches), users also note its built-in speakers (with the handy option to connect to other speakers for higher audio quality); a low-noise fan that keeps the system cool; and a 55,000-hour long lamp life.

Of course, if you’re looking to spend a bit more money on your home theater, there are plenty of higher-quality options to choose from. Check out the best 4k projectors on the market right now, in addition to some more budget projectors that get the job done.

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
