Last chance to save net neutrality has long odds to succeed

Net Neutrality is technically dead. The regulation that forced carriers to treat all content the same was killed by the Trump-era FCC led by its president Ajit Pai. And while a vote by the Office of Management and Budget is all that is needed before your carrier can start discriminating how it disseminates content, there is a last chance movement brewing in Washington that could save Net Neutrality. Still, it is a longshot.

Under the Congressional Review Act, a regulation approved by a governmental agency can be overruled by Congress. A resolution to override the regulation must make it …

The 'right to disconnect' won't save you from after-work hell, but it's a start


What does “after work” mean anymore? 

Not much. These days, employers can Slack you late Friday night, send you an email Saturday morning, and text you with an “emergency” on Sunday night.

In America’s workaholic culture, instant messaging is the 3 a.m. tequila shot nobody needs. But here we are, slumped over, bleary eyed, and paranoid every time our phones vibrate. 

The answer to our collective nightmare could be legislation. New York City is considering a bill that would give employees the “right to disconnect.” It doesn’t ban bosses from emailing their underlings after hours. Instead, it would fine them $250 if they punish an employee for not responding.  Read more…

Deal: Save $500 on the Pixel 2 XL at Best Buy (Verizon models only)

Best Buy has a crazy deal on Google’s Pixel 2 XL, one that offers a huge discount on the flagship, but requires signing up with Verizon and paying the device over a 2-year period.

Deal: Save $50 on a Google Clips camera

Google Clips is an entirely new type of camera, or that’s how Google describes it, at least. It kind of looks like a GoPro, but it really isn’t an action camera. Clips is designed with parents and pet owners in mind, Google says, and it is built with a clip that doubles as a stand for easier positioning. But that’s far from exciting, we know. What’s much cooler is how the camera uses machine learning to automatically take photos or short videos at appropriate moments.

Google launched the Clips camera in February, starting at $249, but the price has now …
