Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) $59 at eBay 0 Read the AirPods review Post a comment An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

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. $210 at Best Buy $60 at Best Buy See at Turo Nvidia,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.

See the first Nvidia RTX gaming laptops in action Chris Monroe/CNET Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). See it Enlarge Image Videocardz/Palit Nvidia’s current GeForce RTX line, which incorporates its latest Turing architecture and ray-tracing cores, is pretty pricey given that most games don’t yet take advantage of ray tracing. So it makes sense that Nvidia would offer a less expensive alternative. Now that rumored alternative’s been spotted in the wild, with the names GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660.The sightings come via news site VideoCardz (which says it received photos directly from card-maker Palit) and Hexus (which got its from Reddit and Imgur). The new models are expected to ship on Feb. 22.We don’t have many specs — or more important, pricing — save the ones circulating on the web: no mention of ray tracing (unlike the RTX models); T116 GPU (rather than T106); 1,536 CUDA cores (compared to 1,920 in the 2060). It’s much smaller than the full-size desktop cards, so clearly intended for lower power, compact and presumably budget-ish gaming desktops.The naming scheme is potentially confusing, though. Nvidia’s series names (for example, 900 series, 1000 series and 2000 series) have traditionally indicated the generation of architecture used in the GPU — e.g. Pascal for the 1000 series and Turing for the 2000 series. It’s understandable to have it bear the “GTX” branding since it lacks ray tracing, and “1660” does put it between the “10” models and the “20” models, but it’s likely to cause confusion.Nvidia didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.

Dickinson Police Department via FacebookDickinson Police say clean up is still underway, after a chemical spill on Dickinson Bayou.According to the Dickinson Police Department, a sulfonate solution from processing plant Calumet-Penreco was found floating in the Dickinson Bayou on Saturday. That prompted a shutdown of all recreational activity on the water, to allow for clean-up crews to work.According to police, Calumet-Penreco has indicted the solution isn’t hazardous, flammable, or corrosive, and less than 250 gallons of the product were lost. In an e-mailed statement, Dickinson police said, “The accidental release is reportedly a result of a damage valve due to the freezing temperatures earlier in the week.”Here’s more information, from the Dickinson Police Department:“The product is a mixture of oily water, sulfonate solution, and emulsifiers used to lubricate drill bits and act as a rust inhibitor. The product overflowed from a catch reservoir at a slop oil tank. Less than 250 gallons of product was lost. Once company officials were aware of the leak, additional employees were brought in and the company began immediate containment operations prior to the environmental response company’s arrival. Company officials have been working closely with local and state officials. The product will not mix with the water or sink to the bottom of the bayou, which will help with cleanup efforts. Calumet Dickinson Refining produces food grade and pharmaceutical grade mineral oil in the portion of the plant where the leak occurred.” Two environmental response teams worked on clean-up efforts through the weekend, and they were still cleaning up on Monday morning. Officials say Dickinson Bayou will remain closed until further notice. Share read more
December 3, 2013 SEO isn’t what it used to be.Ten years ago, an SEO specialist might spend 40 hours a week on keywords, title tags and content manipulation. Nowadays, he or she must possess a much broader skill set and think far more strategicallyThat’s because there’s been a shift toward Search Marketing Integration (SMI) or “layering.” This concept is forcing digital marketers to become master collaborators who can effectively utilize cross-departmental initiatives to fuel a rise in organic visibility. Related: SEO Basics: Keyword Research Made EasyThe credit for this idea has to go to Rand Fishkin, CEO at search-software company Moz. During a conversation with Rand, I asked him whether the term SEO was still relevant. He explained that, rather than looking it as something distinct and isolated from your other business and marketing initiatives, you “need to add SEO as an important review layer on top of all of those other things.”I think this is a really good way to conceptualize how SEO needs to be integrated into all aspects of your business to have the greatest probability of success. It really helps to visualize these concepts, let them sync in and “get it.”In order to become a master collaborator and get the most out of your search efforts, it helps to break your collaborative efforts into four distinct areas:1. InteractionThe first thing every successful digital marketer must do is learn to interact with the different departments within their organization. This has to be done regularly and consistently in order to produce results. The only way to discover the SEO opportunities that exist elsewhere in your organization is to communicate with your colleagues and actively undercover them. This includes attending cross-departmental meetings, happy hours and formal training sessions. You can even uncover SEO opportunities during conversations at the water cooler.2. PersuasionOnce you’ve had a chance to interact and identify opportunities, you need to motivate your colleagues to help you achieve your goals. The best way to approach this is to find a champion within each department. I won’t bore you with tactics for motivation, but it’s vitally important to have a friend that can communicate initiatives from within their department. Having a reliable ‘point-of-contact’ can drastically help you turn ideas into actions and push your initiatives up the priority ladder.3. OrganizationThis is probably the most difficult part of mastering the art of cross-department collaboration. Unless you are organized right from the start you will find yourself struggling to organize and motivate your ‘helpers’. In most cases it’s best to put the infrastructure in place right from the beginning – before you even start approaching people from other departments. There are some great tools you can use to help with this process including digital project management tools like basecamp, collaboration tools like tracky and idea organization tools like mind map. The simplest way to get started is to create a spreadsheet that will document all of your opportunities. You’ll want to create tasks for regular communication (weekly check-in emails with ‘helpers’), ongoing lists for all SEO opportunities, dates for timely opportunities, rating mechanisms for prioritization and a list of actions items for each new opportunity.4. ImplementationThe implementation process will vary based on the nature of each new SEO opportunity. Some things will be easy low-hanging fruit that can be accomplished quickly, like updating a press release. Other opportunities will take an incredible amount of time and effort like collaborating with your engineering department on creating an interactive site widget that can be used for link building purposes. The systems you put in place need to be designed to handle tasks at each end of this scale.The search marketing world has changed. Content is still king and link building is still queen (debatable), but collaboration is the key to both crowns.To make sure you publish content that delivers value to visitors at every point in the sales cycle, you need to collaborate with departmental colleagues across the organization. By approaching this ‘integration’ in a measured, organized way, you can increase the probability of success.Related: How Google ‘Author Markup’ Can Help Protect Your Content and Build Your Brand Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 4 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
