Hurry: AirPods Pro and AirPods 2 are still down to Amazon’s best prices ever

%name Hurry: AirPods Pro and AirPods 2 are still down to Amazon’s best prices ever by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • If you’re debating AirPods Pro vs. AirPods 2 like so many people do when they’re in the market for new true wireless earphones, today is the day you need to make your decision and pull the trigger.
  • What’s with the urgency, you ask? Apple’s wildly popular AirPods Pro, AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case, and entry-level AirPods 2 are all on sale right now on Amazon at their lowest prices ever.
  • AirPods Pro are down to $227.99 thanks to a price cut and an extra discount applied at checkout, and AirPods 2 are up to $50 off for a limited time.

If you saw the headline of this article and thought to yourself, what’s the big deal… Apple’s various AirPods models have been discounted on and off for months now on Amazon, we definitely don’t blame you. It’s true, Apple’s AirPods are never listed at their full retail prices these days at Amazon. But this week, things are different. Not only are AirPods Pro and AirPods 2 on sale, all three models of Apple’s true wireless earbuds are down to their lowest prices ever!

Starting with AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case since they have the biggest discount both in terms of dollar value and in terms of the percentage of the price drop, these $199 headphones can be had for just $149.98 today. That matches the new all-time low price that Amazon cut them to earlier this month, so you’ll never find a better deal on these earphones than this one. What’s more, they’re in stock right now and they ship out right away.

Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $149.98

Many people will still want active noise cancellation despite the $50 discount on AirPods 2 with wireless charging, so you’ll be happy to learn that Apple’s insanely popular AirPods Pro true wireless noise cancelling earbuds are still available right now at Amazon at the lowest price ever thanks to an additional discount that’s applied at checkout. They’re also in stock right now and shipping out within the week, so they’ll arrive in most locations around the country within just a few days.

Apple AirPods Pro: $227.99

Last but certainly not least, Apple’s entry-level AirPods 2 model is on sale as well right now at its all-time lowest price. $129.98 is a great price for these cord-free earbuds, but truth be told, you would have to be a bit crazy to buy these for $130 when you can upgrade to the model with the wireless charging case for just $20. That’s especially true right now, because Amazon’s best-selling 15W wireless charging pad that you can use to wirelessly charge your AirPods is on sale for just $8.99!

Apple AirPods with Charging Case: $129.98

PS5 launch might happen as soon as next week – here’s how we know

%name PS5 launch might happen as soon as next week – here’s how we know by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Sony recently updated the PS5 landing page on its website with a list of the console’s standout features, perhaps hinting at a reveal in the coming days.
  • Rumors have suggested that Sony plans to reveal the design of the PS5 in early June.
  • Mounting evidence seems to be pointing to a major PS5 event within the next few weeks.

The long wait that PlayStation fans have endured for the reveal of the PS5 might finally be coming to an end.

This week, Sony updated the PlayStation 5 landing page on its website for the first time since the system architecture deep dive was streamed back in March. A few lines of text are not all that exciting on their own, but all of the evidence appears to be pointing to an early June window for the long-awaited reveal of the next-gen console’s design and the first-party games currently being developed. Now we can add this update to the list.

We just learned new details about the cataclysmic event that killed the dinosaurs

%name We just learned new details about the cataclysmic event that killed the dinosaurs by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • The asteroid that killed the dinosaur struck the Earth at the worst possible angle for the species living here at the time.
  • Advanced modeling reveals that the rock likely struck at an angle of between 60 and 75 degrees, maximizing the amount of hot gas released into the atmosphere.
  • The impact resulted in the death of approximately 75% of all species on Earth.

When the asteroid that created the Chicxulub crater struck Earth it was an absolutely devastating event. In fact, “devastating” might not even fully describe how destructive it was. Researchers believe it wiped out as much as 75% of all species on the planet. It’s one of the big reasons why we’re here today, but for the dinosaurs it was some pretty bad luck.

Now, a new study published in Nature Communications reveals just how unlucky the species on Earth truly were when that massive space rock arrived. It wasn’t just that the asteroid hit Earth or that it was particularly large — estimated to be as large as 50 miles in diameter — but based on new 3D computer modeling, it appears that the asteroid struck at the worst possible angle.

This is the strongest hand sanitizer you can get from Amazon

%name This is the strongest hand sanitizer you can get from Amazon by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Amazon’s best-selling face masks are still among the most important tools out there for protecting yourself from the novel coronavirus, as long as you also practice social distancing.
  • Of course, there’s one more thing that’s just as important if you want to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep yourself from getting infected: Hand sanitizer.
  • Purell is still impossible to find in stores and it will be for quite some time, but Amazon has several best-selling alternatives in stock right now including very strong sanitizer with 80% alcohol.
  • Visit BGR’s homepage for more stories.

By now you must have visited the CDC’s coronavirus page in order to ensure that you’re following all the guidelines to keep you and your family safe. That means a few things in particular. First and foremost, you need to wear a face mask anytime you leave your house for any reason at all, whether it’s to go to the grocery store or just to take a walk around town. Simple 3-ply masks like Amazon’s best-selling face masks are more than enough to do the job — you don’t need a medical-grade N95 respirator since you’ll also be practicing strict social distancing. You can pick up some KN95 masks to use in higher-risk areas like public transportation or in small stores, but those 70¢ 3-layer masks are more than good enough for most situations.

In addition to face masks, there’s something else you need that’s just as important: hand sanitizer. Purell is still impossible to find anywhere, of course, but there are now several other options in stock at Amazon. In fact, several of them are even stronger than Purell with higher alcohol content!

The strongest hand sanitizer you can get right now on Amazon is Chemical Guys HYG10016 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer, which is available right now for just $9.99 per 16-ounce spray bottle. At just 62¢ per fluid ounce, the price is surprisingly low considering how strong it is. We have no doubt that it’ll sell out fast though, so definitely grab a few bottles now while you still can.

Chemical Guys HYG10016 Alcohol Antiseptic 80% Topical Solution Hand Sanitizer (16 oz), 16. Flui…: $9.99 per 16 oz. bottle

In addition to Chemical Guys sanitizer, you’ll find 8-ounce spray bottles of Zatural Hand Sanitizer in stock and 2-packs are only $17.99 right now. They ship quickly compared to other options and they also have moisturizers mixed in so you don’t have to worry about drying out your hands. This hand sanitizer is a 62% ethyl alcohol mix, so it’s also very strong and has a higher alcohol content than the CDC’s minimum recommendations.

Adam’s Hand Sanitizer 8oz (3 Pack) – USA Made Hand Sanitizing Spray | 75% Isopropyl Alcohol by…: $17.99 ($8.99 per 8 oz. bottle)

Finally, 8-ounce bottles of Natural Concepts Hand Sanitizer Gel are available to purchase in 6-packs for $25.99, which works out to $4.33 per bottle. This sanitizer is 65% ethyl alcohol, which is once again even stronger than the recommended formulation for killing bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus. This brand is a best-seller that has been out of stock for quite a while now, but they’re on their way back according to the Amazon page so definitely order now while you can.

Natural Concepts Hand Sanitizer Gel, 6-Pack, 8 oz Bottles, 65% Ethyl Alcohol, Protect Against G…: $25.99 ($4.33 / 8 oz. bottle)

  • We share top 10 lists each week that help people find new shows to watch on Netflix and on TV, and they pretty much all have one thing in common: The most popular show each week is an original Netflix series.
  • This week’s list has a huge surprise though, because the most popular new series of the week isn’t on Netflix.

Now, you’re left to dig through all the other shows out there in search of some entertaining new series to check out. There’s so much out there that it can be very difficult to figure out what to try and what to skip, but a great way to get some guidance is to see what everyone else is watching.

That’s why we share a new list each week of the top 10 most popular new and returning shows that people are watching — and this week’s list has a huge surprise.

First big coronavirus face mask sale cuts price to just 41¢ per mask

%name First big coronavirus face mask sale cuts price to just 41¢ per mask by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Face masks with filters have been in stock and for sale for weeks now, and our readers have bought tens of thousands of boxes since the CDC recommends that we all wear them to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
  • Prices have come down in recent weeks, and the best-selling face masks on Amazon now cost just 70¢ each.
  • That had been the best price we’ve seen for top-rated masks until now, thanks to a special coupon that slashes the price of Sfave 3-layer face masks to just 41¢ apiece.

How is it possible that there are people out there who are still complaining about having to wear a face mask? Are you people insane?! It’s not just conjecture anymore, people… it’s a scientific fact that wearing a face mask and practicing social distancing protects you from contracting and spreading the novel coronavirus. Yet somehow there are still whiny people out there complaining that wearing a face mask somehow infringes on their freedom. Seriously, give me a break.

Unless you’re a moron, you understand how serious COVID-19 can be whether or not you have any known pre-existing conditions. You’ve also read all the expert opinions on the benefits of wearing a face mask anytime you’re outside your home. The CDC says it quite clearly on its website: “everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public.” If you do that while also practicing social distancing and using alcohol-based hand sanitizer (there’s plenty in stock right now at Amazon) anytime you touch objects or surfaces in public places, you’ll protect yourself and everyone around you from catching COVID-19. It’s so easy, you’d have to be crazy not to do it.

As far as face masks go, we can tell that BGR Deals readers are very responsible because they’ve bought tens of thousands of boxes of face masks over the past couple of months. If you’re running low or if you want to stock up on masks ahead of the inevitable second wave of coronavirus infections, we’ve got some fantastic news.

Prices of face masks have dropped dramatically over the past few weeks, and the best-selling Jointown face masks on Amazon now cost just 70¢ each. At that price, there’s no reason not to stock up on a few boxes. Before you buy those, however, we need to tell you about another option.

Sfavereak 50pcs Disposable Face Mask 3 Layers Safety Masks With Elastic Ear Loop Comfortable fo…: $20.29 ($0.41 / mask) (use code F5CS46TK by 5/31)

Sfave 3-layer face masks have the same construction as Amazon’s best-selling masks. They also have the same design and great reviews. They’re not like N95 or KN95 masks, of course, though KN95 masks just arrived back in stock at Amazon and they’re down to $4 each. KN95 face masks are great for high-risk situations like taking public transportation, but regular 3-ply masks definitely do the job in normal circumstances as long as you’re also using social distancing and good hygiene.

70¢ each is already a fantastic price for something that could quite literally save your life, but a special limited-time deal on the Sfave face masks slashes the price even further. Use the coupon code F5CS46TK at checkout and you can get a 50-count box of 3-ply face masks for only $20.29. That’s less than 41¢ per mask! This coupon code is supposed to last through the end of the day on May 31 but we’re guessing these masks will sell out long before then. In other words, hurry up or you’ll miss out.

Switzerland is the first to use Apple-Google coronavirus contact tracing technology

%name Switzerland is the first to use Apple Google coronavirus contact tracing technology by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • The first coronavirus contact tracing app based on the Apple-Google COVID-19 spread API launched in Switzerland to some categories of users.
  • Latvia will roll out nationwide its own app based on the standard as soon as it receives approval for the App Store and Google Play.
  • Other countries and US states are working on similar apps based on the Apple-Google standard for iPhone and Android, as there’s an increase need to manage the spread of COVID-19 and warn people of potential exposure to the virus.

Apple and Google inked a historic partnership a few weeks ago, to develop a common standard for apps that can allow governments to conduct sophisticated contact tracing campaigns that could help them contain the novel coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is more contagious than we would have hoped, having infected more than 5.7 million people worldwide as of Wednesday morning, and claiming the lives of more than 353,000 patients. Countries including South Korea, Iceland, Germany, Vietnam, and New Zealand excelled at testing and contact tracing in previous months. But as the curve has been flattened in most places and social distancing measures are loosened, there are plenty of second wave worries. New outbreaks are possible, and sustained testing and spread tracing campaigns will be required to prevent widespread transmission. Tools like the Apple-Google API that can be used in tracing apps are definitely needed to increase the scale of contact tracing well beyond what human tracers would be able to achieve. The first country to launch an app based on the Apple-Google standard is Switzerland, with Latvia and other European countries to follow soon.

Galaxy S20 sales can’t match iPhone 11

%name Galaxy S20 sales can’t match iPhone 11 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • iPhone 11 sales crushed competitors in the first quarter of the year. Apple moved nearly 20 iPhone 11 units during the period, just as the novel coronavirus health crisis started affecting the entire world.
  • The Galaxy S20 series was no match for the iPhone 11, and the new Samsung flagships sold even worse than the Galaxy S10.
  • The iPhone 11 displaced the iPhone XR as the world’s most popular phone in the first quarter, but the 2018 handset still made the top 10, surpassing the best placed Galaxy S20 version.

The worst thing about the Galaxy S20 in a world where the cheapest new iPhone costs just $699 was the price. Samsung somehow believed that it’s perfectly acceptable to sell the most affordable Galaxy S20 version for $999, and hoped it would make a killing. It turns out that the phone was too expensive for most people, and it was hardly able to put a dent in Apple’s sales. In fact, the iPhone 11 was the world’s most popular phone in the first quarter of the year, and there wasn’t even a contest.
