Cordcutters delight The AirTV is just 4999 today

Tacklife Still lighting candles with matches? Go back to the 1800s, grandma! For a limited time, Red Baby AI (via Amazon) has the Tacklife ELY01 rechargeable arc lighter for just $6.36 with promo code GZ2Y24C4. That’s even less than the Father’s Day deal from last month. The lighter normally runs $13.See it at AmazonThis thing blows matches and propane lighters out of the water. For starters, it has a gooseneck, so it can light where you need it to light. It’s windproof, because there’s no actual flame to blow out. And it won’t ever run out of propane, because it relies on a rechargeable battery that’s good for up to 1,000 uses (!) between charges.The only caveat: If you use it to light candles, wax can get on the tip, which can prevent the arc from lightning. Just scrape off the wax with your thumbnail and you should be back in business.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

A sound bar for Sonos disciples Now playing: Watch this: Tags Preview • The Sonos Playbar is official: A sleek sound bar that streams all your music for $700 CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Sonos Playbar At just $50 refurbished, the AirTV is one of the cheapest ways to keep local TV channels. And no monthly fees! AirTV Update, July 11: The refurb AirTV is sold out at the $50 price. You can pick up a new AirTV at Amazon for $80 ($40 off), or you can check out the similar Amazon Fire TV Recast for $130 ($100 off). That latter product costs more — and only works with a Fire TV streamer — but it includes a built-in 500GB DVR. Like the AirTV, however, it requires no monthly fees.Read the Air TV review | Read the Fire TV Recast reviewFor many a cable TV cord-cutter, local channels are the final piece of the puzzle. How can you continue to watch (or record) those stations without piling on more monthly fees and defeating the whole point of cutting the cord?Here’s how: Today only, and while supplies last, Woot has the refurbished AirTV dual-tuner local-channel streaming box for $49.99, with free shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers. (Others pay $5.)See it at WootEverything you need to know about this product, you can find in CNET’s AirTV review. However, allow me to sum up: Connect an antenna to the AirTV box, then link the box to your Wi-Fi network (or plug it into your router’s Ethernet port). Presto! Now you can watch live local channels via your streaming devices (Fire TV, Roku and so on) and mobile devices (even if you’re away from home).Better still, the AirTV can pull DVR duty, though it’s BYO USB hard drive. If you have an extra one lying around, great. If not, here’s a Toshiba Canvia 1TB drive for just $49. (My point: Adding your own storage is extremely affordable.)Although the box was “built for SlingTV,” you definitely don’t need a SlingTV subscription. If you have one, those channels will populate the program guide alongside your local ones, which is nice. Even nicer? There’s no monthly fee for AirTV’s program guide.So, yeah, you’re in for $50 for the box. And if you already have an antenna and hard drive, you’re done. The latter is optional, and here’s an indoor HD antenna for just $17.Cord-cutting solutions don’t get much cheaper than this. Even if Woot’s supply of refurbs runs out, the AirTV is quite reasonable at $79.99.If you’ve used one and have thoughts to share, hit the comments section!Bonus deal: The Sonos Playbar drops to $549 (save $150)Sonos Playbar Jason Jenkins/CNET Speaking of refurbished gear for your TV viewing pleasure, the Sonos Playbar sound bar normally sells for $699, but for a limited time, you can get a refurb Playbar for $549.

IT startup employees are entitled to labour law benefits like provident fund

first_imgIn picture: A man counts 1000 Indian rupee banknotes outside a branch of Bank of India in Mumbai, India, November 10, 2016. [Representational image]Reuters fileUnion Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya on Monday, July 24, provided a much-needed boost to employees of tech start-ups, saying they can claim benefits like provident funds that are part of the labour laws of the country. The statement came in the backdrop of information technology (IT) sector crisis in India.The minister’s announcement means start-ups cannot deny employees benefits like provident funds.What the minister saidIn a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Dattatreya said: “The workers of IT start-ups and small-scale industries may avail of benefits of provisions of the Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, the Employees State Insurance Act and social security schemes under the Unorganised Workers Social Security Act depending on eligibility.” The minister’s assertion is important because the Central government has launched a number of schemes for salaried professionals, but it requires organisations to be linked to them and pay their employees dues regularly. This may not always happen, especially because studies have shown close to 90 percent start-ups fail within their first five years.And given the pains a start-up has to go through to raise funds for expansion, some might opt to spend more money on infrastructure now and employee benefits later, once they have better cash flow.  In picture: Minister of State for Labour and Employment (Independent Charge) Bandaru Dattatreya.Press Information BureauCurrent situationIndia’s IT sector has been hit by a number of factors in recent times. Primary among these is the US curb on H1-B visas, which Indian IT companies often use to get Indian professionals to the US to work on projects for lower remuneration. Since then, there has been news of layoffs in many IT companies in India, which have looked to the US to get more employees. The fear of being laid off has driven people to suicide. On the other hand, some are looking to get re-skilled in order to find jobs in newer, more relevant fields.last_img read more

Cycling can reduce your loneliness boost mental health

first_imgFeeling lonely? Riding your bicycles may not only improve your general and mental health, but also increase social interaction, says a study.The study showed that cycling is the healthiest mode of transport and is associated with better self-perceived general health, better mental health, greater vitality, lower self-perceived stress and fewer feelings of loneliness.”The findings suggest that active transport – especially cycling – should be encouraged in order to improve health and increase social interaction,” said lead author Avila Palencia from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) in Barcelona, Spain. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe second most beneficial transport mode, walking, was associated with good self-perceived general health, greater vitality, and more contact with friends and/or family.”Ours is the first study to associate the use of multiple urban transport modes with health effects such as mental health and social contact. It also allowed us to highlight the positive effect of walking, which in previous studies was not very conclusive,” she added.The study, published in the journal Environment International, was carried out in seven European cities: Antwerp, Barcelona, London, Orebro, Rome, Vienna and Zurich and included more than 8,800 people. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe transport modes assessed in the study were car, motorbike, public transport, bicycle, electric bicycle and walking.Driving and public-transport use were associated with poor self-perceived general health, while cars were linked with fewer feelings of loneliness.”This result is most likely due to the fact that the study population drove very infrequently and most journeys by car were probably for social purposes, such as visiting a family member or a friend,” the researchers explained.The study stressed on the need for “an integrated approach to urban planning, transport planning and public health is needed in order to developpolicies that promote active transport, such as adding more segregated cycle lanes for a better environment for cyclists,” the researchers noted.last_img read more
