Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Scott Dudelson/Getty Images A federal court on Wednesday dismissed a class-action lawsuit against rapper Ja Rule that alleged he falsely promoted the doomed Fyre Festival. The rapper was a founder of the 2017 event, which promised a luxury experience but turned out to be a disaster. The suit was filed by festival attendees against both Ja Rule (whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins) and Fyre Festival Chief Marketing Officer Grant Margolin. It alleges that the men made false claims on social media about the festival’s amenities, performances and food. But a judge for the US District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled that Ja Rule and Margolin didn’t know the event would be a disaster.”Atkins and Margolin were participants in organizing or promoting a large-scale event,” the judge wrote. “There is no assertion that the Festival when first conceived or introduced to the public was intended not to go forward or that defendants intended not to perform by organizing the advertised amenities and accommodation.”The court also ruled that the complaint didn’t specify when statements promoting the event were made or allege they were false at the time.   “The Court agrees that the subjective qualifiers of ‘FOMO-inducing’ and ‘Coachella x1000’ are too ‘exaggerated, blustering, and boasting’ for a reasonable consumer to rely on,” the judge ruled, discussing Ja Rule’s tweets, which reference “fear of missing out” and the annual Coachella music festival. Fyre Festival creator Billy McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison last year for wire fraud charges. Ja Rule has denied accountability for the festival. Earlier this year, Netflix and Hulu released competing documentaries about the debacle.  Turo $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Share your voice Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X See It Read DJI Osmo Action preview $210 at Best Buy Read the AirPods review See It Sarah Tew/CNET $299 at Amazon Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Culture,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. 7 HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Read Google Home Hub review Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR $999 Amazonlast_img read more

first_imgClose David Cameron secured a minor pre-general election victory and shocked Ed Miliband when he promised a future Tory government would not raise the rate of VAT.The promise came during the final Prime Ministers Questions of this Parliament and with just weeks to go before the vote in May.Ed Balls had promised a Labour government would not raise the 20% VAT rate, which is typically levied on goods and services, earlier in March. The shadow chancellor also attacked the Tories over the tax, claiming Cameron would raise the levy if he gained office after the general election.Ed Miliband sustained Labours attack on the issue at Prime Ministers Questions when he asked Cameron if he would rule out a VAT rise.On Monday the prime minister announced his retirement plans and he said it was because he believed in giving straight answers to straight questions, Miliband said, in reference to the revelation Cameron would only stay on for two terms.Now, after five years of Prime Ministers Questions, that was music to my ears. So heres a straight question: Will he not rule out a rise in VAT?Cameron replied: In 45 days time I plan to arrange his retirement. But hes right, straight questions do deserve straight answers. And the answer is yes.The pledge caused the Tory benches to erupt into cheers and the Conservative MPs began to heckle Miliband. But the Labour leader claimed nobody would believe Cameron over his VAT promise.Nobody is going to believe it because of his extreme spending plans, because his numbers dont add up and because he promised it last time and he broke his promise, Miliband said. The exchange comes after Chancellor George Osborne raised VAT from 17.5% in 2010 to its current rate as part of his emergency budget.Labour and the Tories are neck-and-neck in the opinion polls as the general election looms. The latest survey from YouGov, which questioned more than 2,000 voters between 23 and 24 March, put both of the parties on 35%, with Ukip on 12%, the Liberal Democrats on 8% and the Greens on 6%.last_img read more

first_imgInfosys, India’s second largest IT firm, has been cleared of visa violations by the US government after a three-month probe, the company said on Tuesday.”Infosys is pleased to report that the US Department of Labour (DOL) concluded its investigation with a determination of compliance regarding labour condition applications filed in the Southern California Edison project. Infosys fully cooperated with the DOL in its investigation, and over 145 files were reviewed, with no violations found,” the company said.In June 2015, the US government had ordered an investigation to probe alleged violation of rules pertaining to H-1B visa by Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). The probe was initiated after two US Senators alleged that the two companies misused an H-1B visa programme to “replace hundreds of American workers” at an electric utility, Southern California Edison. Prior to the investigation, Southern California Edison had laid off over 500 technology workers.”Many said they were made to train replacements who were immigrants on temporary visas, known as H-1B, brought in by the Indian firms, Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys”, an NYT report said.But Infosys has denied indulging in unfair practices.”We do not practice or condone unfair or unethical H-1B visa practices. Our key priority is to operate fairly, ethically and with integrity, which is good business and what our clients expect,” said Sandeep Dadlani, EVP and Head of Americas of Infosys.In another similar instance, an American IT professional, who worked with TCS, had filed a lawsuit against the company in April, accusing the company of practising discrimination against Americans in its US offices and favouring South Asians in hiring and promotion.Indian IT companies are among the top recipients of H-1B visas issued by the US government. The visas allow companies to hire highly skilled workers from other countries when there is non-availability of such workers in the US.Responding to the development, the Infosys stock rose more than 1% on Tuesday morning to trade at Rs 1,070, while the benchmark Sensex climbed over 190 points.Analysts are bullish on the stock. “We maintain our BUY with a price target of INR 1306 and remain positive on the IT space,” said Sarabjit Kour Nangra, VP Research, IT & Pharma, Angel Broking.last_img read more
