Another awesome discount on the LG C1 OLED TV. | Image: LG

If you’re still struggling to find a gift for Father’s Day, you’re in luck. The 48-inch model of the LG C1 OLED is currently on sale for its lowest price ever at BuyDig. Normally $1,299.99, this model is currently discounted to $896.99. The C1 remains one of our favorite OLED TVs for gaming and is heartily endorsed by several members of The Verge staff. Oh, and if you purchase through BuyDig, you’ll even get a $50 Visa gift card to sweeten the deal.

The display of the C1 not only has a 120Hz refresh rate but also is equipped with FreeSync and G-Sync adaptive sync technologies support that provides a much smoother image while gaming at higher frame rates on PC. In addition to helpful usability features like Apple AirPlay 2 and built-in compatibility for Google Assistant and Alexa, the C1 also includes a number of fidelity-enhancing features like Dolby Vision and HDR10.

Overall, the LG C1 is an excellent OLED TV, with a list of features that make it worth looking into whether you’re a gamer or not, especially at this price.

If you’re looking for something that makes a little more of a statement in your living room, the 55-inch LG A1 OLED TV, which usually costs $1,299.99 is currently discounted to just $869 at Amazon, an all-time low for this razor-thin TV. While it may not have all the same features as LG’s newer C1-series, the A1 still comes equipped with a ton of great features that are hard to turn down at this price.

In addition to 4K resolution, the display on the A1 is also equipped with Dolby Vision and HDR10 for remarkable depth of color. It also comes with built-in voice assistants by way of Google Assistant and Alexa for hands-free operation. Unfortunately, while the A1 series does have a low-latency mode for gaming, it lacks support for FreeSync or G-Sync and has a refresh rate that’s capped at 60Hz.

Unless cutting-edge gaming features are a priority, we think this sale on the LG A1 OLED is worth checking out. But, for more great gift ideas for your favorite paternal figure, you can also check out our Father’s Day gift guide for a little inspiration.

If you’re not looking to spend as much or just want a gift that smells better, Nomad, a premium mobile and lifestyle accessories manufacturer, is discounting all of its leather goods by 20 percent. Just use the code RADDAD20 at checkout. Some of the highlights you may want to check out include leather wallets, Apple Watch bands, iPhone cases, and AirTag accessories.

You can also get a pair of the Beats Fit Pro for $179.99 at Best Buy and Amazon, which matches their lowest price to date. These true wireless earbuds normally cost $199.99, making the current deal worth investigating if you’ve been waiting for a better price on the premium earbuds.

We think that the Beats Fit Pro are the best Beats earbuds to date, and thanks to their sweatproof design and ear-hugging shape, they’re perfect for workouts. Like other Beats audio devices, the Fit Pros are powered by Apple’s H1 chip, which lends these earbuds some neat features when working with other Apple devices. In addition to dynamic head tracking for spatial audio and hands-free voice commands for Siri, the Fit Pros can automatically switch and sync between your other Apple devices, adding to their convenience.

Android users may not get access to the full list of features on these earbuds but can still make use of their excellent noise cancellation and fine-tune audio via the Beats app. Read our review.

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

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

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. Note: You will only be able to use a Pro Controller if your phone is running Android 10 and if the game you're playing supports controllers. Additionally, the process for syncing the controller with your phone will be different from one phone to the next.

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature . (Side note: the famous quote about coming to kick ass and chew bubblegum and being all out of gum? Like most
