This past Cyber Monday was Amazon's single biggest sales day ever, and it must have done well on Black Friday as well—perhaps a little too well, to the point of not being able to keep orders straight. Somehow or another, Amazon managed to replace a bunch of Nintendo Switch orders with seemingly random items, such as books, batteries, and even a pack of condoms. That's right, at least one person who ordered a Nintendo Switch from Amazon on Black Friday received a package of prophylactics instead. Granted, in the right hands a condom can be more fun than a Switch, but there is a definite price gap between the two. How exactly could this happen? Amazon is stumped at the moment, though it did...

This is the time of year when retailers can build good will with customers by offering swank discounts on everything under the sun, and as we have seen in years past, the deals are not limited to just Black Friday and Cyber Monday—the deal season typically runs from mid-November to late December. Walmart, however, can't seem to get out of its own way. The latest complaint from Black Friday shoppers is that Walmart is sending out emails saying they may cancel their iPhone orders. Starting on Black Friday (November 29), Walmart offered store gift cards when activating certain phones. This is actually still being advertised on Walmart's website. The amount varies by phone, with the iPhone... Read more...
Technically speaking, Black Friday is in the rear view mirror, leaving us in that seemingly awkward period that falls between the annual day of bargains and Cyber Monday. Over the years, however, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have morphed into a long weekend of sales. We mention this because there are a bunch of laptop deals that are still active on Amazon, including Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air. Whether you want to call these lingering Black Friday deals or early Cyber Monday bargains hardly matters—the point is, there are savings to be had. Discounts On Apple's MacBook Air For Black Friday And Cyber Monday Amazon is selling the aforementioned MacBook Air for $699, which is $300 below its... Read more...
We have sung the praises of the OnePlus 7 Pro here at HotHardware before, and OnePlus is luckily running a Black Friday promotion that is knocking a big chunk off the flagship smartphone's price tag. OnePlus is already known for attractive pricing for its Android smartphones, so this particular configuration’s $699 price tag was already among the lowest for devices in its class. However, today's Black Friday sale sees the OnePlus 7 Pro discounted by $150, which brings its price down to an incredibly hot $549. Unfortunately, that price will only get you the Mirror Gray model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The Almond and Nebula Blue colors are currently out of stock,... Read more...

Over the weekend, we reported that Intel has a new family of NUC small form factor PCs on the horizon with Comet Lake-U processors. The leak pointed out a number of SKUs with Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processor options available for customers. Today, one of our favorite leakers, momomo_us, managed to find quite a few images detailing Intel's new "Frost Canyon" NUCs. Looking at these images, we're not seeing a drastic design overhaul with Frost Canyon; the chassis design still looks very familiar to those that have been following Intel's NUC family over the years -- including the most recent Coffee Lake-powered offerings.  The biggest change that we spy is on the front panel,...

Ring Video Doorbells have been getting a lot of [negative] press in recent months, mainly due to Amazon's partnerships with police departments around the country to share footage from cameras. However, a new vulnerability that was discovered by Bitdefender has left Ring owners open to hackers for quite some time. Researchers from Bitdefender uncovered that when initially setting up a Ring doorbell with the smartphone app, a customer's Wi-Fi credentials are transmitted via an unprotected access point while in configuration mode. Once the doorbell has received all the necessary information from the app and your smartphone to complete its configuration process, it then transmits its credentials... Read more...
