TL;DR: The sensitive Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300 electric toothbrush is on sale for £49.99 on Amazon, saving you 64% on list price.


The Amazon "Hidden Gems Sale" has produced a number of impressive deals on some brands that most shoppers are probably less familiar with. It has also included deals on some brands that we actually know quite well, which kind of seems like breaking the rules, but we won't tell.

The sale ends at midnight on Nov. 12, so you really don't have much time left to save. We highly recommend making your way over to Amazon and checking out the wide range of deals, before they disappear for good. Read more...

Disney+, the all-Disney streaming service, is finally available to the public. The platform features the best of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, including new releases, beloved classics, and exclusive original content.

Catch the new Star Wars live action TV show, The Mandalorian, or rewatch your favorite Disney Channel Original Movies. The entire collection of content is just $6.99 per month and kicks off with a seven-day free trial.

As much as we know you want to hop on the Disney+ train, adding yet another streaming service to your lineup is annoying. But you can keep all of your services on one home screen with a streaming stick like Amazon’s Fire TV or Roku. You can get one of these nifty devices for pretty cheap — especially today because there are some models on sale. Read more...

If you're trying and failing to access Disney+ content, you're not alone.

As morning crowds gather to get a first glimpse the newly launched streaming service, the increased traffic has caused some problems. This is what happens when you put most of the Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and classic Disney catalog all into one place.

There's also the small matter of the service hosting the first-ever live-action Star Wars TV series. (It is good.)

Speaking anecdotally, I installed Disney+ on my phone and fired it up almost as soon as I woke up on launch day. The home screen wouldn't even load at that point, with the app showing an error message instead. I was able to use the search feature to find individual items, but some options – including The Mandalorian – just wouldn't play. Read more...

Coffee: It’s one of the only things that gets us through the day. It comes in so many different forms — espresso, latte, cappuccino, and of course just plain old black coffee (which is still amazing). But the one downside is that to get it, you have to wait in line with hundreds of other caffeine fanatics who are waiting to get their morning pick-me-up. That is, unless you have a coffee maker

Having a coffee machine in your kitchen is a game-changer — you can get your coffee fix whenever you damn well please. So, what are you waiting for? There are a few great Mr. Coffee machines on sale on Amazon for you to pick from right now, so check them out and choose your coffee destiny.  Read more...

One bright summer morning four years ago, two park rangers set off hiking up a dormant Alaskan volcano. 

But like a light switch, the weather changed.

Vicious winds brought frigid, sideways rain. It didn't relent. Usually dry ditches transformed into swiftly flowing creeks, and the rivers grew higher. 

The rangers found rocky shelter to wait out the storm, but one foolish ranger — ill-equipped with cotton socks that day — experienced both an immeasurably miserable and nearly-harmful journey back to safety: Wet cotton socks don't insulate.

The lesson: In the outdoors, simple gear matters — a lot. Read more...

It's not often that Jeopardy! makes you want to break down sobbing, but since host Alex Trebek revealed in March that he'd been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, viewers have been showing him some extra love.

In September, Trebek announced that he would need to undergo additional chemotherapy treatments, and as he remains hopeful and upbeat, both viewers and contestants are supporting him.

In the "Final Jeopardy!" round of Monday night's episode, an especially touching moment occurred when contestant Dhruv Gaur shared a heartfelt message with Trebek during the show.

"Dhruv, you're smiling. I like that. Let's take a look at your response," Trebek said. "Did you come up with the right one? No. What is, 'We love you Alex,'" he continued in a choked up voice. "That's very kind of you. Thank you." Read more...

We have experienced a self-care revolution in the last couple years. People are taking more time for themselves and focusing on their mental and physical well-being, and that's a good thing.

We probably all have at least one friend or family member who's really into self-care, and when it's time to get them a gift you want to help them in their self-care journey as much as you can, because you're nice like that, right?

Self-care looks different for everybody, which means it can be a little difficult to know how to shop for a self-care gift. The most important thing to remember, as with any type of present, is to keep the recipient in mind while you do your searching. Read more...

The Golden Globes now has a host, and that host is Ricky Gervais.

The 77th edition of the annual awards show celebrating the year's best in film and television will air on Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. ET. It's the first big awards show of the new year, and what some see as the formal kickoff to awards season.

Gervais is a grizzled veteran of Golden Globes hosting gigs. The 2020 show will mark his fifth go-round as the evening's MC, following a three-year stretch from 2010-2012 and a subsequent return in 2016.

The idea of anyone voluntarily stepping up to host an entertainment awards show in 2019 is a bit ludicrous, so one has to wonder if the awards-given Hollywood Foreign Press Association has some dirt on Gervais. (No, not really. But also, hmmmmm....)  Read more...

TL;DR: Check out the wide range of strong pre-Black Friday bundle deals on Xbox games on Amazon.


Black Friday is dominated year after year by bundle deals. You can find bundles on smart home technology, speaker systems, and much more.

When it comes to the best bundle deals, it's hard to look past gaming. You can find console bundles, game bundles, and accessory bundles. Basically, you can find everything that a gamer needs in the form of a bundle deal. 

SEE ALSO: Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019: When is it and what are the best deals in the UK?

There are already loads of Xbox game bundle deals to consider on Amazon, with titles like Assassins Creed Odyssey, Rage 2, and Far Cry New Dawn on offer.

TL;DR: There are loads of impressive pre-Black Friday bundle deals on Nintendo Switch games on Amazon.


No, Black Friday has not officially kicked off, but there are loads of deals out there that wouldn't be available if we weren't in the middle of this busy shopping period.

With this in mind, we feel like we can classify these offers as pre-Black Friday deals, because they act as a warm up to the main event. That is not to say that these deals aren't worth seriously considering, because there is no guarantee that anything better is on the way.

TL;DR: Amazon has dropped a wide range of pre-Black Friday bundle deals on PS4 games.


In the coming weeks, you are going to come across many deals, and it's going to be hard to find the ones that actually deserve your attention.

When it comes to gaming deals, we recommend sticking to bundles, because these regularly offer the best chances to save. We're basing this assumption on the fact that bundle deals have dominated the Black Friday landscape over the last few years, and we can't see anything changing in 2019.

TL;DR: The sleek Apple MacBook Air is on sale for £769 on Currys PC World, saving you £30 on list price.


Don't let anyone tell you that Christmas is the most magical time of the year, because the November shopping period beats that hands down, for shoppers at least.

It's at this time of year that we're inundated with deals on everything from portable laptops to massive speaker systems. It can seem daunting, and that's why we do all the hard work to line up the best deals for you to consider.

Currys PC World has started to drop a wide range of deals and while these are not Black Friday deals, they are sort of a watered-down version. The deals are still really impressive, but not in the same number that we'll expect to see in a couple of weeks time. Read more...

"I have one of those lives where, like, every day is a dream come true," says Michael Shannon in the clip above, as he cheerfully observes Jimmy Fallon buttoning up a very special gift. "Like, I never thought in a million years when I was out playing in the creek behind my house in Kentucky when I was five, that I would someday be on a late night talk show and force a very famous man to put an Alvin and the Chipmunks shirt on."

That's exactly what he's done, though.

As the Knives Out star explains, he previously told the Tonight Show host he likes to listen to Alvin and the Chipmunks when he's getting ready to go on stage — and after the segment, the show's boss sent Shannon the onesies as a gift. Read more...

After a pretty impressive showing with the Apple Watch Series 5, what's left for Apple to improve on the next iteration, likely coming in 2020 under the name Apple Watch Series 6?

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), one feature that's coming is improved water resistance, alongside overall faster performance and improved wireless transmission. 

These improvements will come, Kuo claims, with the use of new LCP (liquid crystal polymer) material for the circuit board in the Watch Series 6. This is different from Series 5, which uses PI (polyimide).

The new model being speedier isn't exactly breaking news, but improved water resistance is interesting. According to Apple's specifications page, Apple Watch Series 5 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters (164 feet), and can be used for "shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean." It's not suitable for "scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth." Read more...

The original Angry Birds launched on Dec. 11, 2009, almost exactly 10 years ago. And to celebrate the coming anniversary, Rovio Entertainment has put together a whole slate of activities.

All of it will unfold under the banner of Rovio's "Bring the Anger" campaign, which is a lot happier than it sounds. Yes, a lot of us are angry as hell these days. But the basic premise here is for people to channel that anger in positive directions.

The anniversary festivities will launch with an in-game Angry Birds 2 event. Throughout November, the game's community will be challenged to "pop" as many pigs as they can, with a community-wide target of 10 billion. In early December, shortly after the end of the event, all players will receive an in-game gift and a thank you message from Rovio revealing how many pigs were popped in total. Read more...

Adam Devine's mom plays an important role in his life. She's the manager of his Facebook page. And her comments are truly something to behold. 

The comedy star told Lilly Singh that he asked his mom to manage his Facebook page after she retired because he isn't a fan of the platform. 

"I don't really like Facebook. Sorry Mark, you're meddling too much Mark," he said. 

Devine explained that his mom is reluctant to share her real identity with her son's Facebook fans because she doesn't think they'd like it. 

So, she posts as if she's Devine. He recounted one dazzling post: "One 420, she missed 420 by a few days — my mom doesn't really know what 420 means — she wrote 'sorry I missed 420, I guess I was 420ing too hard.'" Wow.  Read more...

Another day, another deepfake.

In recent months we've seen Bill Hader doing an impression of Tom Cruise, Niall Horan morphed into Diplo, and even Arnold Schwarzenegger starring in No Country for Old Men.

But today's additions are a little more troubling.

On Tuesday morning, a think tank called Future Advocacy released two videos ahead of the UK's general election: a deepfake of UK prime minister Boris Johnson appearing to endorse Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and vice versa.

OK, so the voices aren't quite right, but it's pretty uncanny all the same.

What's the point, though? Well according to an online press release, Future Advocacy has shared these videos — made by UK artist Bill Posters — in order to send a warning about disinformation. Read more...

Hey, remember ARTPOP? Well, Lady Gaga doesn't. But her fans sure do. 

If you recall, this was Gaga's third studio album — a high-energy piece of work that brought us "Applause" and "G.U.Y.". 

But on Monday, Gaga tweeted that she has no recollection of this album. Clearly she'd remembered enough to know that the title is all-caps, though.

i don’t remember ARTPOP

— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) November 11, 2019

Gaga's fans — AKA Little Monsters — were, errrr, unimpressed by this memory lapse. 

One fan warned the singer she was going to get "dragged to filth" because ARTPOP was "a masterpiece."

Guys, the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer is here and it looks like they've at least toned down those teeth. Or just pulled down his upper lip? Either way, it works.

After a serious roasting of the first trailer for Sonic's rather human teeth, there's a new, improved trailer out for the upcoming film.

In this trailer, nice guy Tom (James Marsden) and his new pal Sonic do a lot of things real fast: road tripping, playing darts in a pub, and battling the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey)... at the pyramids?

If there's one spoiler-free word to describe episode 1 of The Mandalorian, the Star Wars live-action TV show now available on Disney+, that word would be "cinematic." Jon Favreau, more of an auteur director than a showrunner, has given us what feels very much like the first 40 minutes of a Star Wars movie that will last about six hours in total. This is both good and bad news.

The good: every penny of the $100 million Disney spent on this series looks like it will be seen on the screenThe Mandalorian is visually stunning, with seamless special effects, high-contrast shots that sear themselves into your memory, and clever set pieces galore. Fans of Star-Wars-is-a-Western theory will go hog-wild since Favreau is genuinely trying to give us his best Sergio Leone impression. Only it's Sergio Leone with landspeeders and aliens and carbonite-frozen criminals. Oh my.  Read more...

Marvel’s Hero Project is nothing like the prestige drama shows heralding the start of the streaming wars, and that’s fantastic.

The new Disney+ series, which premiered with the release of Disney+ on Nov. 12, doesn’t have any big-name actors attached to it and doesn’t tie into any billion-dollar sci-fi universes. It looks at real people, people you’ve probably never heard of, doing really amazing things.

Each episode of Marvel’s Hero Project puts the spotlight on a kid who is inspiring their communities and acting as a positive force in the world — whether it’s encouraging fellow kids to change the way they think about something, or overcoming what other people may view as a limitation.

To mark Veteran's Day, Jimmy Fallon had a couple of announcements in store.

The first was that The Tonight Show would be donating $150,000 to Fisher House Foundation, a charity that "provides housing for families of military and veterans while their loved one is receiving treatment."

The second surprise, meanwhile, was even closer to home.

"Our friends at The Home Depot Foundation started a brand new contest this year called Operation Surprise, where people all across the country get to nominate a U.S. military veteran in need, and the winner gets $25,000 to go towards critical home repairs," explains Fallon in the clip above.

In the Golden Age of Marie Kondo, tiny homes, and minimalist interior design trends, people are focusing their intentions on swapping out things for experiences, making traveling abroad more popular than ever. The shift — and the rise of the sharing economy — has proven that today’s travelers are seeking out more authentic experiences as they’re opting for AirBnbs rather than luxury hotels and planning their travel itineraries so they can fully immerse themselves within the local culture. 

Even with the best intentions in mind and all the pre-trip research you can fit in, traveling to a country where you don’t speak the native language presents a roadblock in making the most out of your visit. Experiencing cultures different from your own and meeting the locals is part of what makes international travel so special, but communicating in a country where you don’t speak the same language can prove rather difficult. Even if you didn’t find time to cram that Danish 101 lesson in before landing in Copenhagen or haven’t brushed up on your Spanish since high school, you can relax. There is officially a technological gadget to make everything better. Read more...

Computers have evolved since then, and most are designed to be a lot less vulnerable to various attacks. This might have you thinking that antivirus programs are no longer a necessity. After all, you probably can't recall the last time you panicked over clicking a sketchy link. Read more...
