Decking out your entertainment center shouldn’t break the bank. Unfortunately, a top soundbar and subwoofer can run you thousands of bucks — but there’s another way. If you don’t mind a high-quality refurb, today’s deal could be the answer.

PCMall is currently offering the Polk Audio DSB1 Sound Bar and DSB2 Wireless Subwoofer combo for just $99.99. That’s a savings of $200 off the manufacturer’s list price. More importantly, it’s a booming sound system for your pad.


Powerful, room-filling, high-performance...

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are top-of-the-line smartphones, featuring terrific cameras, incredibly fast software updates, and a bevy of exclusive features.

However, they are also quite expensive, starting at $799 for the lowest-end model.

Today though, there’s a Google Pixel 3 deal over at the Google Store that gets you an unlocked Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL for $200 off. You can pick your model, your color, and your storage capacity, and whatever price you come to will have $200 lopped off...

  • Verizon says it has asked the FCC to approve a new policy for locking its smartphones to the carrier for 60 days after purchase.
  • This policy was previously exposed in 2018 but then denied by Verizon. Now it’s back.
  • Ajit Pai, the head of the FCC, is a former Verizon lawyer.

Last year, a policy update arrived at Verizon which made it seem that there would be a new 60-day period where Verizon smartphones would be locked, i.e. unable to be used on any other carrier. However, Verizon retracted the update and denied the policy change was coming, instead blaming the “inaccurate” update on an “IT...

Design assets, such as stock photos, add a professional touch to any graphic or web design project. The problem? Most cost a pretty penny to acquire and, once you have them, you may have to pay extra fees to the artist. The costs can quickly mount up.

That’s what makes the StockPop Mega Bundle, which has been price dropped by over 90 percent to just $24.99, such a great alternative. It offers lifetime access to thousands upon thousands of royalty- and copyright-free design assets which you can use on a whim in any project you want.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G won’t be available to buy for quite a while. However, if you happen to live in Australia, you could get one for free when it does arrive.

As one would expect, there is a catch (or three).

The first catch is that you have to be a Telstra customer. Telstra is the largest telecommunications company in Australia and operates the nation’s largest wireless network, so chances are good you might already be a customer.

The second catch is that you have to purchase a Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus...

Google recently overhauled its Google Fit health-tracking program. However, it only updated the Wear OS and mobile apps, with the web interface curiously left alone.

Now we know why the web interface didn’t get much love: Google is shutting down the Google Fit website on March 19, 2019. Google details its intentions in a lengthy orange notification box at the top of the site at fit.google.com:
