You can preorder the first PS5 game on Amazon right now

BGR


Nearly a month ago, Bandai Namco announced Scarlet Nexus during the Inside Xbox livestream featuring gameplay from multiple upcoming Xbox Series X titles. Not long after Scarlet Nexus was announced, Bandai Namco confirmed that the game would be coming to PS4 and PS5 as well, making it one of the first multiplatform next-gen titles. Now, the game has hit another milestone, as it appears to be the first PS5 game available for preorder.

With the last couple of days, the PS5 version of Scarlet Nexus went up for preorder on Amazon. For the very first time, you can put down money for a PS5 game, if that's something you really want to do. Admittedly, this isn't all that exciting, even for gamers desperate for more news about the next-gen consoles, but it might be more significant than it seems at first glance. After all, Sony was originally set to host a PS5 showcase on Thursday.

Watch SpaceX launch 60 Starlink satellites into orbit live right here

BGR


SpaceX has had a busy week, but it's not slowing down for anyone. The company is planning to launch another batch of 60 of its Starlink communications satellites into orbit tonight, and you can watch the whole thing live right here. The launch is scheduled for 9:25 p.m. EDT.

It was just this past Saturday that SpaceX and NASA launched the Crew Dragon to the International Space Station. It was a huge event for both the space agency and SpaceX, and Crew Dragon is now just one step away from securing the coveted certification that will allow NASA to use it whenever it needs to send humans into space.

WHO-backed study shows face masks can reduce coronavirus spread significantly

BGR


We may not have COVID-19 treatments to prevent complications and reduce the risk of transmission, but there are plenty of things we can do to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. Whether it's mandated or not, social distancing can limit the spread of droplets that can contain the pathogen. Face masks can also offer protection, even ones you make yourself. Add in frequent hand washing, and you're doing everything in your power to protect yourself and others. Opening up our cities and returning to some sense of normalcy is possible.

These simple measures, combined with widespread testing and contact tracing, can also prevent future outbreaks from engulfing entire countries. If you're still apprehensive about personal protective material like face masks, you should know that they work, and new research proves that point.

Did Mars once have rings? Scientists say it’s possible

BGR


We think of Mars today as a big, mostly barren orange rock. It's like Earth if Earth had its atmosphere stripped away and had to endure billions of years of erosion as it lost its water to space. Long ago, Mars looked a lot different. It was wet, and perhaps even supported life in some form. According to new research presented at a recent meeting of the American Astronomical Society, it might have also sported rings.

But how could we possibly know whether or not Mars had rings billions of years ago? Surely the evidence of the rings is long gone, right? Maybe not. The researchers behind the study suggest that the strange Martian moons Deimos and Phobos may explain a cycle of ring creation and destruction around Mars.

Waze rolls out new features to keep you safe during the pandemic

BGR


Police brutality protests are the most important thing happening in the US right now, but the coronavirus health crisis hasn’t disappeared. If anything, the gatherings involved in these protests can increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission, and that goes for protestors and the police. Staying safe in this phase of the disease means using face masks, washing hands often, and practicing social distancing whenever possible. The virus hasn’t disappeared, and outbreaks are always possible, even in regions that have managed to flatten the curve.

Waze on Wednesday announced a bunch of new features meant to keep you safe during the coronavirus health crisis, continuing the work it started a few weeks ago.

Asymptomatic people can spread coronavirus for more than a week, study says

BGR


Combine a long incubation period with an absence of distinct signs, and you end up with a pathogen that can spread with ease and infect plenty of people without alerting them to its presence. That’s why the novel coronavirus is so dangerous. Left unchecked, the virus moves from person to person faster than we could have imagined several months ago. A definitive COVID-19 diagnosis can’t be established without testing because of the lack of specific signs. The coronavirus causes symptoms shared with other pathologies, and the unique COVID-19 signs do not appear in all infected people.

And herein lies another big problem: Many people are asymptomatic, but they’re still contagious. A brand new study from China says that carriers without symptoms can be contagious anywhere from three to 12 days, for an average of around eight days. That’s why social distancing measures are so important even after opening up the economy, combined with proper access to testing, the use of face masks, and increased handwashing.

iPad Pro with 5G support and mini-LED display to arrive in 2021

Apple is planning to launch a brand new iPad Pro model with 5G support sometime in early 2021, according to a new leak from Twitter user L0vetodream. Though previous reports indicated Apple was aiming to launch a 5G iPad Pro sometime this fall -- likely a month after the iPhone 5G unveiling -- those plans were reportedly pushed back for unknown reasons.

So what do we know about Apple's next-gen tablet? Well, L0vetodream -- who has previously provided reliable information about upcoming Apple products -- notes that it will boast an A14x processor, 5G connectivity, and a mini-LED display. Taken together, Apple's next-gen iPad Pro will arguably represent the most compelling iPad upgrade we've seen in some time.

New report offers hard evidence that the PS5 hasn’t been delayed

BGR


With everything going on in the world, it wouldn't be especially shocking to see the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X delayed, but all signs seem to be pointing to the next-gen game consoles launching on time this holiday season. Sony and Microsoft have both made it abundantly clear that they still plan to release their new hardware before the end of 2020, and a new report from DigiTimes on Wednesday backs up that assertion.

A supply chain source tells DigiTimes that "the back-end IC packaging and testing" of the AMD chip that will power the PS5 begins next week before being delivered to downstream manufacturers. Production of AMD's chip is set to peak in August, which suggests that the console is still on track to come out in late 2020.

West Point graduates were forced to come back for Trump’s speech, and 16 caught coronavirus

BGR


The coronavirus' US toll has gotten a little worse for at least one reason that will strike most people as unnecessary, according to a new USA Today report which found that at least 16 West Point graduating cadets have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

It's the reason why they tested positive that will seem so unnecessary. West Point -- which is just north of New York City, the major coronavirus hotspot in the US -- had originally closed its campus, sent everyone home, and postponed its graduation ceremony as a response to the COVID-19 virus. But then President Trump at the end of April announced he would speak at this year's graduation. You can probably see where this is going.

Why a positive coronavirus antibody test doesn’t mean you’re immune

BGR


A common misconception regarding the coronavirus is that people who test positive for coronavirus antibodies are now immune to the virus. The reality, though, is that not all antibodies can prevent someone who was previously asymptomatic from experiencing more severe symptoms later on down the line.

Speaking to the matter, Knowridge Science Report recently sat down for an eye-opening and informative interview with Jonathan Fogle, an Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at North Carolina State University.

SpaceX’s history-making Falcon 9 booster is back

SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule that ferried NASA astronauts to the International Space Station is still hanging out in space. It'll remain there for up to several months, and as the first commercial vehicle to take NASA astronauts into space, it's a piece of history.

But it's not the only piece of SpaceX hardware worthy of applause, as the company's Falcon 9 rocket that actually sent the crew into space successfully landed back on Earth shortly after the launch and has now been brought back home. As Spaceflight Now reports, the Falcon booster finally made it back to shore on Tuesday, three days after the launch.

The biggest theater chain in the world doesn’t think it will survive the coronavirus pandemic

BGR


When the novel coronavirus outbreak reached US shores, the number one priority was to slow the rate of infection as quickly as possible. Therefore, social distancing guidelines were introduced and countless businesses were forced to close up shop. Some of those small businesses will never come back, even once the worst of the outbreak is behind us, but the long-term consequences of the pandemic could be far greater than we imagined.

In a regulatory filing on Wednesday, AMC Theatres -- which is the largest movie theater chain in the world, with over 660 theaters in the US -- said that it is "generating effectively no revenue" in the second quarter of the year. Having closed all of its theaters when the virus made its way through Europe and the US, AMC expects that it lost between $2.1 billion and $2.4 billion in the first quarter. As a result, the chain's future looks decidedly grim.

On May 25th, a deadly arrest was caught on camera that sparked a series of protests that have spanned all 50 of the United States of America and have expanded to countries all over the globe. Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on the neck of George Floyd for nearly nine minutes while Floyd cried out that he couldn't breathe while three other officers stood idly by. Four days later, after the protests kicked off, Chauvin was arrested and charged with third degree murder. On Wednesday, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar announced that not only is Minnesota increasing the charges against Chauvin, but that the other three officers will be charged as well.

Forget iPhone 12, it’s this leaked OnePlus phone that will crush the Pixel 5

BGR


The upcoming new premium Pixel phone will not be a flagship device, several leaks said so far. And Pixel leaks are usually right since Google can never manage to keep a lid on anything. Google will go for a processor from the mid-range spectrum for the Pixel 5, and that will simply not be enough. I've already explained how phones powered by the rumored Snapdragon 765 chip that will power the Pixel 5 will be no match for any of the 2020 flagship Androids, including the Galaxy S20 and the OnePlus 8. And forget about the iPhone 12 series that launches this year, or the iPhone 11, iPhone SE, and 2018 iPhones for that matter. In fact, the Pixel 5 might be about as powerful as the Pixel 4, which is hardly the kind of upgrade you'd expect from a next-gen phone. And the handset could still cost $699 at launch. That seems like a reasonable price to pay for a Pixel flagship, as it's cheaper than the Pixel 4 entry price. But the iPhone 12 is already rumored to start at $649, and the direct successor of the 6.1-inch iPhone 11 will probably cost $699 or $749. Not to mention the OnePlus 8 has the exact same price.

But forget about the new iPhones and 2020 Android flagships. You know what will really crush the Pixel 5? The upcoming mid-range OnePlus phone.

The whole world is watching the US right now, as these global protests show

BGR


I said it in an earlier post this week, but there are, for all practical purposes, really only two news stories everybody is paying attention to right now. The coronavirus pandemic, and all of the fallout from that, and the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, which has sparked a level of social unrest in the US not seen since the late 1960s.

Really, though, you could broaden your outlook on those two items to say this is most of what people across the world are paying attention to right now, not just in the US. America's enemies are certainly piling on, as these protest-themed tweets from Russian and Iranian officials show. From the official Twitter account of the Russian ministry of foreign affairs: "#American #police commit high-profile crimes all too often. Against this backdrop, #Washington refuses to expand its humanitarian commitments in international #law every year. #US authorities should meticulously investigate the murder of #GeorgeFloyd."

Coronavirus face masks still aren’t required in these 8 states, which is insane

BGR


As the United States continues to battle the novel coronavirus pandemic, some states have started to roll back restrictions on things like public gatherings, services, and businesses. Most states still have some kind of guideline in place to push citizens to wear protective face coverings in order to slow the spread of the disease, since we already know that doing so works. Effective face masks are incredibly affordable, and you can even make your own.

However, there is a handful — well, a few more than a handful — of states that have no such measures in place and don't require masks to be worn. It's still advised that people wear masks, but these states don't have any official mandates in place.

FLASH SALE: PlayStation Plus 12-month codes just dropped to $42 at Amazon ahead of PS5 news

BGR


We're going to keep this one short and sweet because it's almost certaintly going to sell out soon. With just weeks to go before Sony announced more PS5 news and just months until the PlayStation 5 is released, PlayStaiton Plus 12-month membership digital codes just dropped to the lowest price of 2020 at Amazon. In fact, the current sale price of $41.99 is even less than 12-month membership digital codes cost during Black Friday and Cyber Week last year.

12 months of PS Plus typically costs $60, and it's worth every penny since it gives you access to online multiplayer and new free games each month. You also get exclusive PlayStation Store discounts that no one else can access. All that for a full year for just $41.99?! You would have to be crazy to pass it up.

Also of note, since the PS5 is coming out this year and you're obviously staying in the PlayStation ecosystem for the forseeable future, you can buy as many codes as you'd like and stack them all on your account. For example, you can buy five codes and add 5 years to your current PlayStation Plus balance.

The rare sale that slashes $50 Philips Hue color bulbs to $42 is back

BGR


Once upon a time not very long ago, Philips Hue LED smart light bulbs used to go on sale all the time at deep discounts. In fact, there would be different Philips Hue deals available each week, and then nearly every popular bulb in the company's lineup would be discounted during big sales events. More recently, however, things have changed. Incredibly, almost no Philips Hue deals were available at all during the Black Friday and Cyber Week sales ahead of the holidays last year.

Opportunities to save on Philips Hue bulbs are definitely quite rare right now, but they do exist and you have to make sure you take advantage when the chance to save some cash does arise. One such opportunity is available right now on Amazon, where you'll find a few great deals on some of Philips Hue's most popular smart lights.

The Philips Hue A19 Multicolor LED Smart Light Bulb is the single most popular bulb the company makes, and it's quite pricey at $50 a pop. Right now on Amazon, however, you can buy individual bulbs for $42 each. That's a great price that matches Amazon's lowest price so far for individual color bulbs. On top of that, you can pick up Philips Hue White Ambiance LED smart bulbs for $24 each instead of $30.

Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 LED Smart Bulb, Bluetooth & Zigbee compatible (Hue Hub…: $42.00

Philips Hue White Ambiance A19 10W Dimmable LED Smart Bulb (Hue Hub Required, Works with Alexa,…: $24.00

If you're willing to go with refurbished Philips Hue bulbs — and there's really no reason not to since they're guaranteed to look and function like new — you can pick up a 4-pack of Philips Hue white A19 light bulbs for only $46. That's just $11.50 per bulb, and it's the best price we've seen in quite some time on the newer style of white Philips Hue bulbs.

In addition to the two deals above that are both great for people who already have Philips Hue setups in their homes, there is one other deal that is perfect for people who are just beginning to build out a Philips Hue setup: The Philips Hue White Ambiance Smart Bulb Starter Kit with four white bulbs and a hub gets a nice big discount from $150 to $119.99.

Fauci just confirmed the bad coronavirus vaccine news we’ve been dreading

BGR


The more we learn about the novel coronavirus, the clearer it is that COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon — if at all. But these past few weeks taught us that there’s a lot of hope for living with this new pathogen, just like we do with the flu. Doctors have tried several therapies that proved to be successful, and researchers are already crafting meds that should boost the immune response and prevent the virus from replicating inside the body. Also, more than 100 labs have devised vaccine candidates, and around 10 of them have already reached human trials, with several of them showing great promise.

Some vaccines might be ready as soon as late 2020, with more on the way next year. But the challenge of manufacturing and distributing enough doses will prevent the world’s entire population from having access to COVID-19 vaccines early on. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert who has direct knowledge of several of these projects, has always shown cautious optimism about coronavirus vaccine candidates. He said not so long ago that the first vaccines might be ready in early 2021 and then explained that the partial data available for some of them already shows that they indeed work as intended. But there’s no guarantee any of these vaccines will ultimately be effective against SARS-CoV-2. And even if they are, Fauci now cautions that immunity likely won't last very long.

Latest iPad leak reveals a huge change that could spill over to Apple’s iPhones

BGR


Earlier this year, Apple revealed a new iPad Pro model with trackpad support and a new LiDAR Scanner. Despite the chaos caused by the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, this likely won't be the last new iPad model Apple debuts in 2020. In a note last month, TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed Apple would release a 10.8-inch iPad in the second half of this year, while a 9-inch iPad mini is slated to arrive in the first half of 2021.

Kuo didn't specify the type of iPad that Apple would launch later this year, but based on a new report from Japanese supply chain blog Macotakara, it seems reasonable to assume that the new model will be the fourth-generation iPad Air. The report also suggested that a major change will be coming to the new iPad Air.

Amazon’s top 5 best-selling protein bars are back in stock today

BGR


If you follow the BGR Deals team's coverage, you know that there is one protein bar that we recommend above and beyond all others. It's the Quest Hero bar, which is sweetened with allulose instead of regular sugar. It tastes exactly like sugar but the body doesn't metabolize it the same way, so you don't have to worry about all the calories and other problems associated with sugar. It's frigging delicious, and the two most popular flavors are both in stock right now at Amazon with a special deal that's available. Buy one box of Quest Hero Blueberry Cobbler Bars or Quest Hero Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and you can get a second for 25% off! Get two boxes of the same flavor or mix and match to get one of each — either way, you'll save on the second box.

As good as they are, Hero bars actually aren't among the best-selling protein bars on Amazon. Anyone who has ever tried one will be shocked to find that out, but perhaps it's only because not enough people know about them. In any case, the novel coronavirus pandemic means we're all cooped up in our homes for a long time to come, and we might not be getting as much nutrition as we should. Or, if you plan to work out at home — and you definitely should — you're obviously not going to be able to grab a protein bar or a shake on your way out of the gym. With that in mind, we dug through Amazon to find the five best-selling protein bars on the entire site, and you'll find them all listed in order down below.

Pure Protein Bars Variety Pack, 18 Count

China keeps lying about its coronavirus cases

BGR


China has been widely criticized by some but also applauded by others for the way it handled the novel coronavirus epidemic. The criticism outweighs the praise, as the lack of transparency surrounding the emergence of the virus and the decisions made in the first few weeks of the epidemic may have exacerbated the worldwide spread of the virus. Even though China acted with swiftness to contain the Wuhan epicenter, its actions still allowed the virus to escape. While China can’t be blamed for the way other governments like the US handled their own COVID-19 crises, China has yet to provide explanations for the emergence of the virus. The country is slowly trying to change the origin story of COVID-19, and it has been saying that the virus did not come from a lab or from the Wuhan market.

On top of that, China’s coronavirus statistics can’t be trusted, given what happened in other regions. The math doesn’t seem to add up and China isn’t helping. A few weeks ago, the country admitted it was wrong about the overall death count, adding nearly 1,300 people to the official figures. Now, China says it conducted a massive testing campaign in Wuhan, performing almost 10 million tests out of which only 300 came back positive. But China is not counting those positive results towards its COVID-19 stats because these people aren’t symptomatic.

iPhone 12 in stunning new Midnight Blue color shown in design video

BGR


At this point, we know just about everything there is to know about Apple's upcoming new iPhone 12 lineup. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise, of course, since details surrounding the iPhone 12 series first began leaking last year even before the iPhone 11 was announced. Those details and most of the other solid info we have came from the top Apple insider in the world, TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He regularly leaks early intel long before Apple's new products are announced, and he did it yet again with the iPhone 12.

According to information from Kuo's many leaks, Apple plans to release not three but four new flagship iPhone models this year. That will bring the company's 2020 iPhone release count up to five, which is the most in any calendar year. Kuo says we can look forward to two new iPhone 12 models with 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch OLED screens, and two iPhone 12 Pro models with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch OLED screens. He also says all four new iPhone models with support 5G, and they'll all feature a sleek new design two main differences compared to the iPhone 11 series. First, the notch at the top of the screens will be smaller. And second, the phones will have a flat metal border around the edges like the old iPhone 5 and the new iPad Pro. They're shaping up to be exciting new devices indeed, but there's even more to look forward to when the iPhone 12 debuts later this year.

Coronavirus-killing UV sanitizer boxes are finally back on Amazon

BGR


Everyone knows that smartphones are breeding grounds for all sorts of bacteria and yes, viruses as well. In the age of coronavirus, you really can't be too safe. Clorox wipes and Lysol wipes are still nowhere to be found in supermarkets across the country, but Amazon finally has three different UV-C phone sanitizers back in stock that you can get soon if you hurry.

Aside from face masks and hand sanitizer, this might be the most important purchase you make in terms of protecting yourself from the novel coronavirus.

The first model available right now is the Yasolote UV Smartphone Sanitizer Case, which is available for $42.99. It has a nice large inner compartment to fit even the biggest smartphones out there, and it's one of the most affordable options on Amazon.

Yasolote Phone Uv Sanitizer, Portable UV Light Cell Phone Sterilizer, Aromatherapy Function Dis…: $42.99

Another good option is the Soeland UV Cell Phone Sanitizer, which is the same price at $42.99. It works just as well as the aforementioned model, but the design is a little different. This is a newer model that hasn't been available quite as long as the others.

UV Cell Phone Sanitizer, Portable Smart Phone Sterilizer, Aromatherapy Function Phone Disinfect…: $42.99

Then we have the best-selling HoMedics UV-Clean Phone Sanitizer that has been so popular with our readers. It's a bit pricey at $79.99, but it has a great collapsable design that makes it easy to stow anywhere. Despite the zipper closure, it still has a magnetic safety — the zipper pull is hiding a magnet that can only attach to the safety when it's zipped closed.

The HoMedics UV-Clean Large Phone Sanitizer works just as well as the model noted above, but it has a larger interior space so it can clean bigger items. It's $99.99 and it's in stock now, but it'll probably sell out soon.

HoMedics UV-Clean Portable Sanitizer | Kills Up to 99.9% of Bacteria & Viruses at The DNA Level…: $99.99

And finally, if you want to go all-out you can save $15 right now on the ultimate UV-C sterilizer that uses UV-C light and ozone. Just clip the on-site coupon.

5 things to stock up on so you’re ready for a coronavirus second wave

BGR


Just about every expert you can find agrees that most states are beginning to reopen their economies too soon. That said, they also all seem to agree that the second wave of novel coronavirus infections is inevitable. With that in mind, we know that it's impossible to avoid a coronavirus second wave. The difference this time around, however, is that we'll be better prepared for it.

With everything that has happened over the past few months and considering all of the CDC's recommendations, you know you need to wear a face mask when you go outside. You know you need to use hand sanitizer whenever you touch a surface in public. But you also know those things and more will be impossible to find once the second wave arrives. You need to stock up on essentials right now while you still can, and we've got five important recommendations below for things you should stock up on.

Face masks

Jointown 3-layer face masks are by far the best-selling masks on Amazon and they do a great job of protecting you when combined with strict social distancing and good hygiene. Plus, they only cost 60¢ per mask so you should definitely stock up.

Face Mask, Pack of 50: $29.99 ($0.60 / mask)

For higher-risk activities like taking public transportation, flying, or visiting a doctor's office, more effective KN95 face masks are good to have. MagiCare KN95 face masks are very popular with our readers and are back in stock right now at the new lower price of just $3.25 each. Head over to eBay and you'll easily pay $10 or $12 apiece for KN95 masks!

200Pcs Facial Protection Filtration>95%, Anti-fog, Dust-proof Adjustable Headgear Full Face Pro…: $64.99 ($3.25 / mask)

Hand sanitizer

Superfy Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel has been very popular among our readers and it's now finally back in stock. It's a soothing gel with moisturizers including vitamin E, and it's very strong with 70% ethyl alcohol content.

Superfy Hand Sanitizer, Moisturizing Gel Hand Wash with Pump,No-residue,Quick-drying 16 fl.oz (…: $39.99 for 4 bottles

If you're looking for another good option with even more coronavirus-killing alcohol in its formulation, Forward Science Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer Spray has been a best-seller for a while now. 6-packs of 8-ounce bottles are now back and it has 80% alcohol content so it's the strongest hand sanitizer you can get right now.

Hand Sanitizer - 80% Alcohol - World Health Organization Formula - 8 fl. oz. 6 Pack - Liquid Sp…: $49.99 for 6 bottles

Toilet paper

Remember how difficult it was to find toilet paper a month ago? Well, it's still that tough to find in some areas and it's going to get even worse once coronavirus infection rates start climbing again. Do yourself a favor: Visit Amazon's toilet paper page and stock up — Cottonelle and Quilted Northen are both in stock today if you hurry!

Toilet Paper On Amazon: $9.99+

Paper towels

The run on paper towels was nowhere near as bad as the run on toilet paper, but good brands are still difficult to find in some regions. Paper towels never expire and you'll always need them, so you might as well stock up on paper towels while some decent options are still available.

Paper Towles On Amazon: $21.99+

Chest freezer

If there's one thing I wish I had ordered long before the coronavirus outbreak got really bad, it's a chest freezer. There's no way you can fit enough frozen food in your refrigerator's freezer unless you already have two fridges. If you don't, you'll find two terrific chest freezer options below.

Chest Freezers On Amazon: $169.99+

$5 billion lawsuit claims Google’s incognito mode spies on you

BGR


All those times you open a new Google Chrome window and try to browse the Internet in so-called "incognito mode" may not be as incognito as you think -- in fact, according to a proposed class-action lawsuit filed against Google on Tuesday, the company is actually snooping on users' activity while this setting is engaged.

The lawsuit -- filed in federal court in San Jose, California -- accuses Google parent company Alphabet Inc. of quietly amassing data about what people do online and what sites they visit while in the private browser mode, per Reuters. From the text of the lawsuit: "Google promises consumers that they can 'browse the web privately' and stay in 'control of what information [users] share with Google.' To prevent information from being shared with Google, Google recommends that its consumers need only launch a browser such as Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox in 'private browsing mode.' Both statements are untrue."

Google just banned an Indian app that helps remove Chinese apps from your phone

BGR


The bizarreness of 2020 continues with a new episode in the ongoing China vs. India conflict that’s been exacerbated but the novel coronavirus pandemic. The two nations found themselves at odds again in the heights of Himalaya in early May, where soldiers on both sides fought each other using rocks and wooden clubs as weapons. No shots were fired, but there were injuries on both sides, just as more troops were brought in to reinforce the mountainous border that’s seen numerous similar fights in the past years. Tensions escalated against the backdrop of COVID-19 and might worsen. The battle isn’t only fought with clubs in the Himalayans. Indian and Chinese smartphone users and app makers have been having a fight of their own in recent weeks, including the TikTok protest and, more recently, the Remove China Apps (RCA) controversy. Google was forced to act in both accounts, removing negative reviews for TikTok a few days ago. Now, Google pulled the RCA app from Google Play for violating its Deceptive Behavior Policy.

Insider says Marvel and Sony are working on a new Spider-Man deal

BGR


Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, theaters have not been allowed to operate, and it will be a while until moviegoers are ready to risk exposure to COVID-19 in a packed room. On top of that, production for several movies and TV shows was stopped indefinitely to prevent infections.

One of the companies most affected by lockdowns and travel bans is Disney, and many of its revenue streams are now on pause. Marvel is one of Disney’s big money makers, and the health crisis impacted its plans severely. All the upcoming MCU Phase 4 films were postponed, as Disney doesn’t want to squander potential profits by launching movies like Black Widow on Disney+. Some of the Marvel TV series set to hit the streaming service might still be on track for a late 2020 release, but they could also be impacted by the movie delays. After all, everything has to happen in a specific order in the MCU. It’s not all bad news for Marvel, though, especially if this following rumor is to be believed. Apparently, Disney and Sony are close to solving their Spider-Man problem once and for all.

Scientists found the cleanest air on Earth, and it’s nowhere near you

BGR


You might think that stepping out of your front door every morning and swallowing a couple of lungfuls of fresh morning air is just about as good as it can get — especially during the pandemic. Sure, it's refreshing, but according to scientists from Colorado State University, the cleanest air on Earth is nowhere near your house or any area where humans have settled down.

The research, which was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, reveals that the Southern Ocean around Antarctica is really where it's at if you want some seriously fresh air. Thanks to some quirks of the global climate and weather patterns, the clouds over the Southern Ocean are pristine.

Looters find that iPhones stolen from Apple Stores are bricked

BGR


The senseless killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police has sparked a wave of nationwide protests against racial inequality and police violence. In the wake of these protests, some cities have experienced a rash of looting and vandalism. Incidentally, there's been a decent amount of evidence which suggests that much of the looting has been spurred on by opportunists looking to score free stuff and stir up trouble as opposed to peaceful protestors.

Amidst all the turmoil, some Apple retail stores over the past few days have been targeted and hit by looters. Some of the impacted locations include retail stores in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia. What's worth noting, however, is that looters who manage to abscond with items like stolen iPhones and iPads quickly find out that their haul is worth next to nothing.

England banned sex in response to the coronavirus pandemic

BGR


This is one for the record books, England. The country wanted to tackle the new coronavirus pandemic with herd immunity before realizing that allowing the virus to circulate would kill thousands of people before that level of immunity could be reached. Realizing its mistake, the UK government pivoted to doing exactly what everyone else was doing, which is enforcing strong social distancing measures that reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The country was able to flatten the curve to the point where the developer of one of the most promising COVID-19 vaccines started worrying about not enough people getting sick to test the effectiveness of the drug by exposing volunteers to potential infections. With almost 278,000 cases and nearly 40,000 deaths as of Tuesday morning, the UK is one of the hardest-hit countries. But it’s the country's latest measure that will be mocked the world over, as the government has effectively attempted to ban sex.

iOS 14 to feature brand new translator tool and enhanced Apple Pencil support

BGR


When Apple unveils iOS 14 at WWDC later this month, the company's next-gen mobile operating system will include a new translator tool along with enhanced Apple Pencil functionality. The news comes courtesy of 9to5Mac which, according to previous reports, got its hands on an early developmental build of iOS 14 a few months back.

The translator feature is particularly intriguing and will reportedly make it possible for users to translate entire webpages without having to funnel it through a service like Google Translate. The report notes that users will be able to translate webpages automatically when a foreign language is detected or toggle it on and off manually.

Fascinating study reveals which country has the best Netflix content

BGR


June is going to be another typically huge month for Netflix on the original movie front, with the streamer having teed up new Netflix original films from superstars like Spike Lee and Will Ferrell. As a matter of fact, in all, Netflix is releasing 46 original movies and shows this month, a typically jam-packed month for the service that also doesn't take into account the massive amount of licensed content available to Netflix subscribers -- in addition to previously released Netflix original shows and movies.

We faithfully cover Netflix's cadence of new releases, in addition to the titles people are most looking forward to (as well as what they end up watching the most of once it actually debuts). Meanwhile, here's a fun exercise that poses an intriguing question, based on Netflix's sprawling global user base that touches pretty much every major country in the world: We keep getting this slew of content week-in, week-out, but is there someplace in the world that actually has the best Netflix content? The "best" encompassing both the highest volume as well as the highest-quality content on the service?

Leak reveals Google’s Android TV streaming device and its remote

While Roku, Apple, and Amazon have released dongles for streaming video with their own built-in user interfaces and operating systems, Google has been content to let people pair their phones, tablets, and computers with Chromecast devices that lack a UI of their own. After all these years, it looks like Google is finally ready to compete more directly with those rivals, and a new leak has given us our best look yet at the unannounced device.

For some time now, we have been hearing rumors about a streaming device being developed by Google that would ship with a remote and Android TV software onboard. On Tuesday, XDA Developers shared purported renders of the dongle, which is codenamed Sabrina, has an oblong shape, and will ship in white, black, and pink.

Blood bank offers free coronavirus antibody testing for blood donors

BGR


In an effort to encourage volunteers to donate blood, Vitalant -- a non-profit organization that helps distributes blood to hospitals -- said that it will start informing blood donors if they have coronavirus antibodies. The antibody test Vitalant is using has already been approved by the FDA and will help individuals determine if they were exposed to the coronavirus, regardless of whether or not they ever exhibited symptoms.

The impetus for the program is that blood for various surgeries and medical treatment plans is in short supply because blood drives have effectively been on hiatus on account of COVID-19.

Elon Musk trades jabs with Moscow over SpaceX success

BGR


NASA made history over the weekend by launching SpaceX's Crew Dragon to the International Space Station with astronauts on board. It was the first crewed launch from US soil since the end of the Space Shuttle program and the first crewed launch of NASA's Commercial Crew program, which tasked both SpaceX and Boeing with producing crew-capable spacecraft to send into space.

Russia was apparently not impressed.

In a press conference after the successful launch, SpaceX boss Elon Musk said "the trampoline is working." It was a reference to some disparaging remarks made by Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. This comment appeared to spark a very casual war of words between the US and Russia's space group.

A third of coronavirus unemployment benefits have yet to be paid

BGR


As nightmarish as this pandemic has become for countless Americans who were furloughed or laid off, it would have been even worse if not for the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, which significantly increased unemployment benefits for virtually everyone in the country. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean much to the millions of Americans that have yet to see any money after losing their jobs.

Bloomberg reports that nearly a third of unemployment benefits owed to Americans have yet to be paid. On Monday, the Treasury Department released data showing that it disbursed $146 billion in unemployment benefits from March through May, which is more than was sent out in all of 2009. But based on Bloomberg's calculations, the Treasury owed about $214 billion over those three months, which means $67 billion is unpaid.

This is the wrong way to disinfect your home if you want to stay safe from coronavirus

BGR


The county that encompasses my city of Memphis, Tennessee, just reported its highest one-day total of new coronavirus cases (190) on Tuesday since April 24, one of the many reminders out there, both big and small, that we remain in the throes of a deadly pandemic. As of the time of this writing, in fact, the number of coronavirus infections in the US has topped 1.82 million, while the number of reported deaths here has surpassed 105,000 (according to the latest numbers from Johns Hopkins University).

All of which is to say, it sounds like people still need a few reminders of best practices right now, including things like the wearing of a face mask when you're outside your home. Anecdotally, I saw pretty widespread adherence to this in public for a while, until things seemed to drop off in this regard over the last several days (in situations completely separate from protests taking place). Among the other things we're continuing to learn about the virus, meanwhile, like places to avoid and all the ways the virus can affect you -- here's a recommendation on how to disinfect the spaces and things around you to remain safe from the virus.

NASA’s coronavirus ventilator is going into production

BGR


Back in April, in the heart of the coronavirus pandemic, NASA stepped up to help by developing a ventilator specifically designed for COVID-19 patients. The device was nicknamed VITAL (short for Ventilator Intervention Technology Accessible Locally) and it was meant to be a low-cost, easy-to-build piece of life-saving medical hardware. Now, as the pandemic continues to rage on, the space agency has announced the companies that have been chosen to manufacture the VITAL ventilators.

In a new blog post, NASA reveals that over 100 companies submitted applications to be chosen as manufacturers for VITAL. After narrowing down the dozens of options, the Office of Technology and Corporate Partnerships at Caltech, which manages NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and holds the patents on VITAL, selected a total of eight companies as manufacturing partners.

Facebook finally made it easier to delete all of your old posts

BGR


Facebook, for all of its innumerable flaws, is a platform billions of people all around the world use to stay in touch with one another and share moments of their lives with friends and family members. But chances are that if you have been using Facebook since you were young (or you've just had an account for a while), there are posts you wouldn't want potential employers to see or you would simply like to have stricken from the record.

Purging a Facebook account that has existed for months or years has never been especially easy, but this Tuesday, Facebook introduced a new tool called Manage Activity that greatly simplifies the process of removing old posts from your profile. Facebook says that whether you're graduating or going through a breakup, it wants "to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today."

Fauci just criticized vaccine maker Moderna for doing the same thing he did

BGR


When Dr. Anthony Fauci announced the promising results of a massive remdesivir trial that the National Institutes of Health conducted, he did so without waiting for the proper research to be published in a medical journal. The remdesivir study results weren't published until several weeks later, delivering the same conclusions Fauci offered from the White House in late April. But Fauci is now unhappy with vaccine maker Moderna for the way it announced promising results for what could end up being one of the first vaccines for the novel coronavirus.

Here’s what NASA astronauts are saying about SpaceX’s Crew Dragon

BGR


By now you've seen the history-making SpaceX/NASA launch of the Crew Dragon, but views from the outside of the spacecraft as it cruised skyward don't offer a clue as to what it felt like for the astronauts who were actually inside it. In an interview with reporters on Monday, astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken were happy to share their experience as the first humans to travel into space in SpaceX's shiny new spacecraft.

So what was it like? Apparently pretty nice, according to the two men, and it even had the classic "new car smell," according to Chris Cassidy, the current commander of the International Space Station.

The Air Force has a bomb detector that can sniff out life-threatening coronavirus cases

BGR


One of the problems with the novel coronavirus is that some people will experience a more severe case of the disease, especially the elderly and people suffering from other medical conditions. This typically involves respiratory issues that may require oxygen therapy including invasive ventilation, and can often lead to death. Incidentally, that's why coronavirus testing is so important. The earlier you diagnose COVID-19, the faster you can begin treating it.

Doctors studying the COVID-19 pathology have already found ways to reduce the risk of complications. They are testing methods that could offer ways to predict which patients might be prone to developing severe respiratory issues. Physicians in the UK are testing a T-cell program that can help them predict severe cases and provide effective treatment. Separately, researchers from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) think they can repurpose a tool made for bomb detection to identify chemical substances indicative of severe COVID-19 complications.

Insane video shows LA cops interrupting live news and handcuffing the wrong people

BGR


It's been an extraordinary 72-hours or so in America, with journalists and social media documenting in unsettling, dramatic, and historic detail the unrest that's consumed the country since the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police last week. Police protests, demonstrations, and outright riots have been multiplying and escalating around the country.

On Monday night, meanwhile, I saw one of the most surreal things ever captured by a television news crew -- in this case, a TV news crew from the LA neighborhood of Van Nuys. You can watch it via the tweet below from Los Angeles Times sports columnist Arash Markazi, and what it shows is the aforementioned news crew documenting what appears to be a standoff between armed business owners who are trying to dissuade what purport to be looters. As the crew continues to film, the cops eventually roll up, having been waved down for help in protecting the business. But it got surreal from there.

If you're a user of Amazon's beloved virtual personal assistant Alexa, you undoubtedly couldn't even begin to imagine life without it at this point. From answering your pressing questions — and your not-so-pressing questions — to controlling all of the cool smart home devices in your house or apartment, Alexa does it all. That's why you have multiple Echo smart speakers strategically placed throughout your home, so that you can speak a command or ask a question and no matter where you are, Alexa will get to work.

That's all well and good when you're inside your home, but what happens when you leave? Why should you lose access to Alexa just because you're not inside your house anymore? Don't worry, we've got you covered.

Roav Viva by Anker, Alexa-Enabled 2-Port USB Car Charger in-Car Navigation, Compatible with And…: $19.99 (use code VIVACAR199 by 6/7)

The Roav Viva by Anker looks like an oversized car charger, and it is. You'll find two USB ports to plug in your mobile devices and there are also a bunch of additional features that Anker offers on some of its other car charger models. But the real reason to pick up a Roav Viva is Alexa. Just like the Echo Dot in your home, the Roav Viva allows you so speak commands or questions and get hands-free access to Alexa.

Whether you need an answer to a pressing question like "Hey Alexa, what's the official bird of Louisiana?" or you want to tell Alexa to make sure the lights in your bedroom at home are turned off or ensure the garage door is closed, the Roav Viva has you covered. And yes, you can indeed use Alexa to open and close your garage if you have a device like the Nexx NXG-200 or the MyQ, though a monthly subscription is required to use Alexa with the MyQ.

The Roav Viva by Anker is a fantastic accessory that's must-have for any Alexa lover. It's also on sale right now at the lowest price of 2020. Use the coupon code VIVACAR199 at checkout between now and the end of the day on June 7, and you'll only pay $19.99 for this awesome accessory.

New coronavirus stimulus plan would pay you $1,200 to go to work

BGR


Not that anyone needs a reminder, but for all practical purposes there are pretty much just two news stories that matter in the US right now. One of them is the social unrest taking place around the country related to the protests inspired by George Floyd, excessive use of force by police and the Black Lives Matter movement. The other, in case you forgot, is the coronavirus pandemic and all of the forces, response, and storylines stemming from it -- including the government response to the virus that, to date, has infected more than 1.8 million people in the US and resulted in more than 105,000 reported deaths here. That's according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University.

There continues to be chatter, proposals floated, and a general sense that Congress should do something as it relates to a follow-up coronavirus stimulus package. A new report from the Congressional Budget Office Monday gave some new urgency to this, predicting that the coronavirus will erase almost $8 trillion from the US economy over the next decade. Accordingly, yet another new stimulus proposal has emerged that would offer people another $1,200 -- but there's a catch.

Prime Day is postponed, but Prime Day pricing is here for Sony’s hottest headphones

BGR


If 2020 was a normal year, we would all be gearing up for the biggest shopping event of the season right now. We're talking about Prime Day 2020, of course, which has been postponed until sometime in September. With the novel coronavirus pandemic still wreaking havoc in regions all across the United States and around the world, this wouldn't exactly be an appropriate time to host a massive sales event. That's especially true when you consider that more than 40 million Americans are unemployed at the moment since so many nonessential businesses have been forced to close.

It will be quite some time before things really start getting back to normal, and that's especially true if you consider the fact that many hard-hit cities and states are in the process of reopening their economies WAY too soon, and coronavirus infections are already beginning to spike again. Have we learned nothing from the events of the past few months?! Oh well, just make sure you stock up on best-selling face masks and hand sanitizer while you can.

Many bargain hunters are still a bit upset that Prime Day is postponed despite everything that's going on, but we do have some good news for you. The Sony WH1000XM3 wireless ANC headphones that are best-sellers each and every year on Prime Day and Black Friday are currently on sale, and they're down to their Prime Day price of just $278 instead of $350! More affordable Sony WHXB900N headphones are on sale as well, so you can snag them for $178 instead of $250. And last but certainly not least, if you want a much more affordable option and you're not tied to Sony, the incredibly popular Cowin E7 wireless ANC headphones with more than 19,000 5-star ratings are down to just $49.99 thanks to a discount and an extra $10 coupon you can clip.

All three of these headphones are fantastic options, so definitely check them out while they're discounted.

Dr. Fauci says Trump isn’t even going to coronavirus meetings anymore

BGR


Our priorities in the United States have shifted dramatically over the past week.

Following the killing of George Floyd by a police officer -- who has been arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter -- protestors have been marching through the streets from coast to coast, demanding justice for Floyd and an end to police brutality. All the while, the novel coronavirus pandemic has taken a backseat, but even as several states are flattening the curve and mitigating the spread of the virus, it's unclear what effect these mass gatherings will have on the infection rate in the days and weeks to come.

Whether or not the protests lead to a rise in the infection rate, there are still over 10,000 positive cases being reported every day in the United States, and yet the White House Coronavirus Task Force has seemingly dissolved. There was also a period where we didn't hear from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director and task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci, but he has finally reemerged with some troubling news.

The best Ring Video Doorbell deals of 2020 are here, including a free Echo Show 5

BGR


It seems crazy to think that after all this time there are still people out there who don't have a Ring Video Doorbell of some sort. The peace of mind alone is well worth the cost of buying one. These brilliant little gadgets record anything and everything that happens in the space in front of your door and alerts you immediately when motion is detected. It's a great feature with so many added benefits, like alerting you when you get a delivery and deterring package thieves.

Ring Doorbells also give you a notification anytime someone rings your doorbell. This way, you can pop open the app on your phone if you're not around and see and speak to whoever is at your door. Or, if you also have an Alexa device with a display, you can configure it to automatically show you who's at the door anytime the bell rings. That's what's so great about the bundle deal Amazon is offering today, which gets you a Ring Video Doorbell Pro refurb for just $178.99 plus a free Echo Show 5 refurb. The combined value when you buy them new is $340, and certified refurbished products are guaranteed to look and function like new.

If you don't want the Echo Show 5 for whatever reason, there's another deal you can take advantage of. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro on its own can be had for just $119 when you buy a refurb. That's less than half what you'd pay for a new one! In fact, it's the lowest price we've ever seen and we definitely expect it to sell out fast.

A new Ebola outbreak is sweeping Congo despite coronavirus lockdown

As if 2020 wasn’t already terrible enough, there’s even more bad news coming out of Congo. The African country is already being ravaged by a measles outbreak and is battling the novel coronavirus like every other nation in the region. On top of that, Congo now has to deal with a brand new Ebola outbreak that somehow appeared despite the lockdown measures that are currently in place in the country to slow the spread of COVID-19. Congo is no stranger to this particular infectious disease that’s scarier and deadlier than the novel coronavirus, as it has been fighting off an epidemic for years. What’s peculiar this time around is that new cases appeared in a different region of the country despite lockdowns and travel bans.

Can you really catch coronavirus from packages delivered to your home?

BGR


Shortly after the coronavirus pandemic became a worldwide health crisis, many people wondered just how feasible it would be that the virus could latch on to surfaces like cardboard boxes and remain alive for days. If it could, that would mean that packages shipped across the country or even overseas had the potential to carry the virus with them.

Now, with a warehouse facility in South Korea revealing a huge outbreak among its staff, the answer to that question is perhaps more important than ever. Unfortunately, there's little clarity to be found, and that means I have both good news and bad news.

Upgrade any room in your home with 3 fantastic Fire TV deals on Amazon

BGR


You might have a "smart TV" or two in your home, but the odds are very good that it's not as smart as it should be. Televisions from Samsung, Sony, LG, and others can of course run apps and they're fine if all you want to do is stream Netflix. But no TV maker will ever support all the apps and games you want with their proprietary smart TV software. That means regardless of whether you buy a "smart TV" or just a regular TV, you'll need to make it even smarter by adding a streaming media player like a Fire TV Stick, Roku device, or an Apple TV.

Now, there is a very important exception that everyone should know about. Some vendors sell televisions that ditch the proprietary platforms and instead have Fire TV software or Roku software built right in. That's pretty much the only time you'll get away with not having to buy a separate streaming media player. And right now, several of the best options out there that have Fire TV software or Roku software preinstalled are on sale at their lowest prices of 2020. In fact, the two Fire TV Edition televisions we're going to tell you about have been discounted all week, but they both just got even deeper discounts this morning!

First and foremost, the Toshiba 32-inch Smart HD TV - Fire TV Edition is the single best-selling television on Amazon's entire site. It's perfect for a guest bedroom, the kitchen, or any other space where you need a compact TV. This model retails for $180 but right now you can pick one up for just $149.99.

Toshiba TF-32A710U21 32-inch Smart HD TV - Fire TV Edition - Limited Version: $139.99

If you need something a bit larger for your living room, the basement, or your master bedroom, it doesn't get much better than the Insignia NS-50DF711SE21 50-inch Smart 4K UHD TV - Fire TV Edition. It has a stunning display, 4K resolution, and it's on sale for $299.99 right now instead of $350.

Here are the 10 new and returning shows everyone’s obsessed with on TV and Netflix

BGR


May was a huge month for new releases on TV and several streaming platforms, and that of course includes Netflix. In fact, Netflix released a whopping 49 different original series, movies, and specials over the course of the month. Definitely hit that link to see what you missed because there were so many releases that you inevitably missed some good ones. Needless to say, the most hotly anticipated release of May came a few days ago toward the end of the month, when Greg Daniels's new show Space Force premiered. The creator of The Office has teamed up with Steve Carell once again, and while critics panned the first season of the show, fans have been loving it for the most part.

June is set to pick up right where May left off on Netflix, with 46 new original movies and shows set to be released over the course of the month. Definitely check them out to see what's coming, but there's plenty to watch that's out right now before we get to this month's upcoming premieres. If you're wondering what's worth watching and what you might be better off skipping, we've got exactly what you're looking for right here.

The strongest hand sanitizer you can get on Amazon is down to a new lower price

BGR


You've surely seen the CDC's coronavirus page by now and if you're smart, you're following the agency's guidelines to keep yourself and your family safe. Needless to say, there are certain things you need to pay attention to most. First and foremost, you need to wear a face mask anytime you leave your house for any reason at all, whether it's to go to the grocery store or just to take a walk around town. Simple 3-ply masks like Amazon's best-selling face masks are more than enough to do the job — you don't need a medical-grade N95 respirator since you'll also be practicing strict social distancing. You can pick up some KN95 masks to use in higher-risk areas like public transportation or in small stores, but those 60¢ 3-layer masks are more than good enough for most situations.

In addition to face masks, there's something else you need that's just as important: hand sanitizer. Purell is still impossible to find anywhere, of course, but there are now several other options in stock at Amazon. In fact, several of them are even stronger than Purell with higher alcohol content! The strongest hand sanitizer you can get right now on Amazon is Forward Science 80% Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Spray, which is available right now for just $49.99 per 6-pack of spray bottles.

Hand Sanitizer - 80% Alcohol - World Health Organization Formula - 8 fl. oz. 6 Pack - Liquid Sp…: $49.99 for 6 bottles

In addition to the Forward Science sanitizer, you'll find 8-ounce spray bottles of Zatural Hand Sanitizer in stock and 2-packs are only $17.99 right now. They ship quickly compared to other options and they also have moisturizers mixed in so you don't have to worry about drying out your hands. This hand sanitizer is a 62% ethyl alcohol mix, so it has a higher alcohol content than the CDC's minimum recommendations.

Hand Sanitizer Liquid Spray - Rinse Free Waterless Hand Cleaner - 62% Alcohol - 4 Thieves Essen…: $17.99 ($8.99 per 8 oz. bottle)

Finally, 8-ounce bottles of Natural Concepts Hand Sanitizer Gel are available to purchase in 6-packs for $25.99. This sanitizer is 65% ethyl alcohol, which is once again stronger than the recommended formulation for killing bacteria and viruses, including coronaviruses. This brand is a best-seller that has been out of stock for quite a while now, but they're on their way back according to the Amazon page so definitely order now while you can.

Natural Concepts Hand Sanitizer Gel, 6-Pack, 8 oz Bottles, 65% Ethyl Alcohol, Protect Against G…: $25.99 ($4.33 / 8 oz. bottle)

The 5 best places to buy coronavirus face masks online right now

BGR


Check out the CDC website and you'll see the recommendation clear as day: everyone should wear a face mask anytime they go out in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. Of course, that doesn't mean you should go out and spend $20 or more on a single N95 respirator mask that can't even be reused. In fact, the CDC says specifically that you should NOT purchase or wear medical-grade masks at all. Healthcare workers and people on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19 are in desperate need of PPE including face masks, so you should never reward opportunistic stores that sell them directly to consumers. In fact, you absolutely should report them.

The bottom line is that you don't need a medical-grade face mask to protect yourself because you don't spend hours at a time treating coronavirus patients like doctors and nurses do. You're smart, so when you go out you always make sure to practice social distancing and good hygiene. For those reasons, there is a wide range of face masks that will provide you with more than enough protection while shopping in a supermarket or making other quick essential runs out of your home.

The favorite options right now among our readers are Jointown 3-Layer Face Masks, which cost just $0.60 each, and the MagiCare KN95 masks that are $3.45 each when you buy a box of 20. Both options are in stock and ready to ship right now at Amazon, and they happen to be the best-selling face masks on the retailer's entire site. If you're handy, you can also make your own DIY coronavirus face masks quickly and easily using materials you already have lying around your home. If you'd rather just buy face masks and you want some options aside from the best-sellers we just told you about, you'll find five great places to buy face masks listed below.

Amazon

Head over to this face mask page on Amazon's site and you'll find a wide range of face masks that are available right now, including the best-sellers we mentioned above. There's a good mix of 3-layer masks and various types of cloth face masks, and several of the most popular options are ready to ship soon and will be delivered within a week.

Face Mask, Pack of 50: $29.99 ($0.60 / mask)

Magicare 4-Ply Material Protection High Efficiency of Filtration, 3D Design for Better Fit the…: $68.99 ($3.45 / mask)

Face Masks and Protective Face Covers Hub on Amazon: $8.99+

Amazon Handmade

Did you know Amazon has a whole like Etsy that's full of handmade products? There are tons of handmade face masks available right now over at Amazon and you'll be surprised at how affordable some of the options are.

Handmade Face Masks: $10.00+

Arm the Animals

Arm the Animals is a brand that doesn't normally make face masks, but it's making plenty of them right now. The shop will also donate one face mask to California hospitals for every mask purchased.

Arm the Animals Face Masks: $18.99

Swaddle Designs

Swaddle Designs has shifted some of its manufacturing capacity away from baby products so it can offer face masks. The company's masks fit very well and they're made of comfortable material that contours to the face.

Swaddle Designs Face Masks: $9.99+

eBay

If you want KN95 face masks for high-risk situations like riding public transportation or flying, there are two things you should know. First, eBay is the easiest way to get them. Second, you'll have to be willing to pay ridiculously gouged prices. As is the case with anything you shop for on eBay, only buy from sellers with plenty of positive feedback.

Big leak shows all four new iPhone 12 designs with a small surprise

BGR


This might be the year of the novel coronavirus, but Apple is still expected to unveil new iPhones in the second half of the year. Several rumors have already revealed plenty of iPhone 12 secrets, including specs and prices. One of the most exciting revelations concerns the number of new iPhones that Apple will launch in September and October. For the first time in iPhone history, we’re looking at four iPhone sizes, including a brand new 5.4-inch model.

The health crisis might force Apple to delay the iPhone press conference, a leaker said a few days ago. And some of the new iPhones might be launched several weeks later than expected. But the iPhone 12 final design should have been decided, with production reportedly set to start at some point in July for some of the four models. A brand new leak offers us a fresh look at the purported four iPhone 12 designs, revealing a tiny surprise in the process.

iOS 14 will maintain a huge advantage over Android

BGR


Apple’s new software innovations should be unveiled in a few weeks, during an online-only WWDC 2020 keynote presentation. That’s assuming the protests against police brutality won’t force Apple to postpone an event that was already delayed by the coronavirus health crisis. Google and Sony postponed their Android 11 and PS5 announcements that were scheduled for this week in light of the George Floyd protests.

The iPhone maker will unveil software novelties across all its platforms, including iOS (and iPadOS), macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. But, as always with these events, it’s the iPhone operating system updates that will be the stars of the show. iOS 14 leaks have already revealed some of the highlights of the new OS update. All of that seems to be genuine information, as someone got their hands on an iPhone running an internal version of the unreleased OS. A new report appears to confirm that iOS 14 will help Apple secure a huge advantage over Android, one that Google can hardly dream of.

Coronavirus cases in Israel increased once public transportation restrictions were loosened

BGR


The coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing, but the virus has seemingly started to subside in many areas across the country. This, coupled with the fact that many people are growing increasingly restless on quarantine, has prompted a number of states to loosen up coronavirus-related restrictions. Some states, for example, are now allowing non-essential businesses like barbershops to reopen.

In light of the above, some medical researchers have cautioned that reopening states up too soon could result in a second, and potentially more deadly, wave to emerge. Indeed, we're already starting to see this play out in a few countries across the world.

If you want to avoid the coronavirus, avoid this public place above all others

BGR


What extraordinary times we're living in, when as recently as February most people had no inkling that a global pandemic was about to completely reshape daily life as we know it. The coronavirus' US toll is something we've lived with for more than two months now, and even though the virus has now infected more than 1.8 million people in the US (and killed more than 105,000 as of the time of this writing, according to the latest stats from Johns Hopkins University), it's now been supplanted by a tragedy of an altogether different kind.

We're continuing to learn more news about the coronavirus each day, some of it promising and other details troubling, like so much else about the COVID-19 pandemic that has changed all of our lives. Meantime, as states are gradually opening back up again and economies are coming back to life around the country after weeks of lockdown, experts have been sharing notes of caution, warnings about the possibility of a new wave of coronavirus, and best practices about how we can all keep ourselves safe in public again.

Chris Evans says he’s done with Captain America

BGR


Their numerous appearances entertained us for more than 10 years, but three of our favorite Marvel superheroes are out of the picture after Avengers: Endgame. Black Widow and Iron Man died, while Captain America retired in a separate timeline to finally grow old with the love of his life. Technically, Black Widow will be back for at least one more movie. Black Widow is the origin story Scarlett Johansson should have gotten years ago, but never did. Now that the movie's finally ready, the novel coronavirus has forced Disney to postpone the launch to November. Iron Man should also have a brief cameo in the film, using old footage from other MCU movies.

But Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans aren't expected to appear in new MCU movies going forward. There's been recent talk recently about RDJ reprising his iconic Iron Man role, and that's great news for fans who hope to see the actor in the suit again. But the only way for that to work would be in prequels that precede the events of Endgame. Reviving Tony Stark for movies that follow Endgame would ruin Endgame. As for Evans, the actor suggested a few months ago that he'd consider playing Steve Rogers again.

But now he's made it clear that it's not happening.

NASA spots piping hot batch of new sunspots, hinting at increased solar activity

BGR


Our Sun is incredibly important to our survival. We'd like to make sure it's nice and warm and happy at all times, but our nearest star goes through a variety of moods just like everyone else. These solar cycles include times of increased activity, with sunspots and solar flares firing off regularly, to quiet stretches in which sunspots and flares are far rarer.

Just a couple of days ago, NASA helped spot a new batch of sunspots and the flares arcing above them. In a new blog post, NASA explains that the flares weren't particularly powerful, and didn't register with NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center, but NASA's own hardware was able to detect them. The space agency suggests that the sunspots and flares could be an indication that the star is becoming more active yet again.

New study shows remdesivir works in coronavirus therapy, but it might not be enough

BGR


The novel coronavirus still has no cure, but doctors have devised plenty of therapies that have shown promise and are in various stages of testing. One of them is remdesivir, the drug that received Dr. Anthony Fauci’s endorsement in late April. We learned at the time that remdesivir can speed up recovery, reducing it down from 15 days with other types of care to 11 days. Fauci said at the time that the drug didn’t affect mortality rates and that remdesivir may have to be combined with different medicine to improve COVID-19 therapy.

The study was published a few weeks later, further confirming these findings, and making it clear that remdesivir isn’t the miracle COVID-19 drug we’ve been waiting for. The maker of remdesivir on Monday published an additional study on Monday that says that remdesivir works in COVID-19 therapies. However, Gilead’s Phase 3 study assessed the length of treatment, and its conclusions may only apply to a certain subset of patients.

SpaceX Crew Dragon hit a huge milestone, but it’s not done yet

BGR


When SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule traveled to space atop a Falcon 9 rocket on Saturday, it was a big deal. It was an even bigger deal when the Crew Dragon docked with the International Space Station, allowing two NASA crew members to join their peers in the orbiting laboratory. Those were two huge accomplishments, but NASA has yet to actually certify Crew Dragon as being ready for regular use in space missions. It can't do that until the spacecraft makes it back to Earth in one piece.

The final hurdle for SpaceX and Crew Dragon is a safe return to Earth with astronauts on board. Unfortunately for SpaceX, NASA hasn't decided when that return trip will actually happen.

Wild video shows a Tesla Model 3 on Autopilot crashing into a truck

BGR


Video released over the weekend shows a Tesla Model 3 on Autopilot crashing into a truck that had fallen on its side. The incident took place on a highway in Taiwan and footage of the crash -- which was obtained via nearby security cameras -- has since gone viral. The Model 3 driver, it's worth noting, emerged unscathed, which is a testament to Tesla's impressive safety features.

As you'll see below, the crash video is jarring for a few reasons. For starters, the Model 3 made absolutely no effort to brake before hitting the truck. For reasons we'll get into shortly, it appears that the Autopilot software simply didn't recognize there was an obstacle ahead.

The 10 best movies and shows coming to Netflix in June 2020

BGR


Over the past three months, the only topics of discussion between myself, my friends, and my family (other than the increasingly chaotic state of the planet) have been the shows and movies we've been watching and the music we've been listening to. Netflix -- in addition to other streaming services -- has given us something to talk about when our lives are otherwise on pause, and though June is a relatively quiet month for Netflix compared to the rest of the year so far, there are several highlights worth pointing out, which we've done below.

Incredible video shows SpaceX’s Starship prototype exploding

BGR


SpaceX had an incredibly eventful weekend. Its Crew Dragon capsule traveled to the International Space Station and for the first time ever it had astronauts along for the ride. It was a huge accomplishment for SpaceX and a very big deal for NASA, which desperately wants the ability to send humans into space whenever it desires.

Unfortunately, not everything swung in SpaceX's direction, and a test of a SpaceX Starship prototype ended in the worst possible way on Friday. A static fire test — a test of the vehicle's propulsion system without it leaving the ground — resulted in a massive explosion and a complete loss of the prototype known as SN4.

If there are more coronavirus stimulus checks, they may go to the neediest

BGR


It's been overshadowed in the news by the unrelated tragedy that's gripped the US in recent days, but the country is still very much in the throes of a pandemic -- and political leaders are still grappling with how to respond to it, including the questions of if, when, and how to send out a new round of coronavirus stimulus checks.

At least one proposal that includes funding for new stimulus checks has already been passed by the House of Representatives. It's run into a buzz saw of opposition in the Republican-controlled Senate, where leaders there are less inclined to commit billions of dollars in new coronavirus stimulus aid right now. Meantime, a surprising new development has just emerged that may have even more of an impact on who gets any future coronavirus stimulus checks.

Top Italian doctor claims that the coronavirus is disappearing

BGR


The novel coronavirus has infected almost 6.3 million people as of Monday morning, with more than 375,000 people having died of COVID-19 complications. The curve has been flattened in many regions where life is resuming to some degree, but the threat isn’t gone. Some warn that a second peak is possible, and others expect a second wave at some point down the line, quite possibly in the fall.

What’s clear is that the virus hasn’t disappeared and won’t anytime soon. Experts say it might never be eradicated, though we hope to find effective drugs and vaccines to help us treat and prevent the illness. To say the virus has disappeared is incredibly misleading, at best, but that's exactly what one Italian doctor has claimed.

Sony is already hinting at a high price for the PS5

BGR


Providing its plans haven't changed, Sony will host a digital event on Thursday, June 4th to showcase "The Future of Gaming" on the PlayStation 5. Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan said that fans who tune in will get their first look at the games coming to the PS5, but he didn't say anything about the hardware itself, leading us to believe that the price and release date of the console will not be revealed during this event.

Details like these may be weeks or even months away, but in a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Ryan hinted at the price of the PS5, and, based on his comments, we shouldn't expect anything budget-friendly.

Some of the most unforgettable photos and scenes from protests this weekend

BGR


What a profound, unsettling, and historic weekend in America. It was a weekend dominated by massive protests across so many major US cities, plus the imposition of curfews, speculation on how an absent President Trump will respond to all this, peaceful marches mixed with violent clashes, and roundups of protestors across the country. All of it, of course, stemming from the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed man who was restrained, placed on the ground, and who died after one of the cops kept his knee on Floyd's neck.

If you opened any of your social media apps at all over the past weekend, you've already gotten a sampling of what's been unfolding around the country over the past few days. As the week began, parts of cities from Boston to Los Angeles were still smoldering, as anger reigns in the country's streets -- at a time, we should add, when a pandemic is still underway. At the time of this writing, coronavirus infections in the US have reached almost 1.8 million, and more than 104,000 people have died from the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University.

A drug that provides temporary coronavirus immunity started human trials

BGR


The coronavirus epicenter moved from China to Europe to the US and then South America in a matter of months. As some outbreaks die down following successful tactics meant to flatten the curve, others flare up. And even as the number of new coronavirus cases drops in some regions, the risk of further outbreaks doesn't disappear. We'll still have to avoid crowds, wear masks, and wash our hands often throughout the day for the foreseeable future, and that's because anybody can be infected.

The good news is that we've come a long way when it comes to treating COVID-19. Some of the meds that had been developed to treat other diseases work against the novel coronavirus as well, and vaccines are already showing plenty of promise. On top of that, researchers around the world are studying a brand new type of drug that's been engineered specifically to fight off the COVID-19 infection. The first human trial for this type of medicine has already started, and the treatment could be available to patients long before vaccines are ready.

Apple just released the first iOS 13.5.5 beta for the iPhone

BGR


Shortly after releasing iOS 13.5.1 and iPadOS 13.5.1 to the general public, Apple on Monday released a new version of its mobile software platforms for developers. The first iOS 13.5.5 and iPadOS 13.5.5 betas are now available to developers as over the air updates.

iOS 13.5 is the first version of the software to feature the API for Apple's contact tracing technology, which the company developed in collaboration with Google. Authorized developers can use the API to build apps of their own to trace people who test positive for COVID-19, which will be a vital step in the process of beating the coronavirus and getting back to normal.

In addition to the API, iOS 13.5 also brought an improvement to Face ID that makes it easier to unlock your iPhone when you are wearing a mask. Once you download the update, your iPhone will automatically skip to the passcode screen rather than trying to scan your face through the mask. You can also disable larger tiles in Group FaceTime video calls, in case you don't want anyone's face to dominate the entire screen.

It looks like we know when the first iPhone 12 model will enter production

BGR


When the novel coronavirus pandemic began earlier this year, and virtually every major developer conference, reveal event, and trade show was postponed or canceled, it seemed inevitable that product launches would be affected, too. After all, factories all over the world were being shut down to stop the spread of the coronavirus and keep employees safe. Yet, for the most part, everything has stayed on schedule, including the release of new MacBook Air, iPad Pro, and iPhone SE models. And a new report suggests that the iPhone 12 will launch on time as well.

According to DigiTimes, volume production of the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models will begin in July-August ahead of other 2020 models later this year. As noted by MacRumors, the reasoning for the staggered timing is because the two 6.1-inch models will use touch modules that have to be outsourced to other supply chain partners. Meanwhile, 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models are said to use OLED panels from Samsung, which come with Y-OCTA technology. These Y-OCTA panels have touch sensors built-in and don't require a separate touch layer.

How coronavirus is hurting people even if they don’t catch the disease

BGR


The novel coronavirus hasn't disappeared, although news detailing the pandemic may have taken a back seat to the increased coverage the George Floyd protests have received in previous days. The widespread movement against police brutality is all happening against the COVID-19 backdrop. The infection is still there and new outbreaks can occur without notice, even though many countries are slowly opening up to some sense of normalcy following more than two months of lockdowns and strict social distancing measures.

You may have escaped the coronavirus for the time being, but that doesn't mean you're in perfect health. Many people ignored other medical conditions because of the COVID-19 scare. And many more people may suffer from various mental health issues that may have been exacerbated during the lockdowns. Two new studies show that COVID-19 is affecting mental health, which could turn out to be a serious issue if we have to endure a second wave in the coming weeks and months.

iOS 13.5.1 out now on iPhone with ‘important security updates’

BGR


Nearly two weeks after the launch of iOS 13.5 and iPadOS 13.5 on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Apple is out with a seemingly minor update that is said to address security issues. “This update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users,” the company says in the release notes for iOS 13.5.1, which you can download now on your device. To be clear, this is not a beta release, so anyone can get it right away.

It's worth noting that this update also comes just days after a massive jailbreak for every device capable of running iOS 13.5 was released, which makes it seem possible that this update is solely to combat the unc0ver jailbreak tool. In fact, one of the hackers behind the tool said as much on Twitter just moments ago.

This $21 sleep mask has a special feature that helps keep you asleep

BGR


Our readers have bought tens of thousands of boxes of coronavirus face masks over the past couple of months, and now is a good time to stock up on them again for two reasons. First, they're down to the lowest price ever at just 60¢ per mask. And second, we're a month or two away from the inevitable coronavirus second wave, so you might as well stock up on them now before they're hard to find again.

Today, there's a different type of mask we want to talk about: A sleep mask.

If you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, a mask is likely the last thing on your mind. Traditional sleep masks are great for blocking out light, but they don't really do anything to address the most common reasons that people tend to have trouble sleeping. The Lightimetunnel Sleep Mask, on the other hand, is an entirely different type of mask. It's thicker and more comfortable than anything else you've seen before, and it also has a feature you won't find on any common sleep masks: built-in headphones and Bluetooth. This way you can stream soothing music to help you fall asleep and keep you asleep, but you don't have to worry about uncomfortable earbuds or headphones that inevitably fall off.

The Lightimetunnel Sleep Mask is already a great value at just under $23 or at $21.46 if you grab one while there's a 5% coupon on Amazon. Definitely check it out.

Sleep Headphones, Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless 3D Eye Mask, WATOTGAFER Sleeping Headphones for Side S…: $21.46

Look at the crazy plastic pods restaurants are using to protect people from coronavirus

BGR


The coronavirus pandemic has affected the restaurant industry in some severe and profound ways. Dining rooms were shuttered nationwide and eateries were forced to mobilize delivery options as fast as possible. Now, as restrictions in some regions begin to loosen, restaurants are forced to come up with new ways of protecting their patrons and preventing the dreaded second wave of new infections.

Once French designer has come up with what he believes is a solution to the problem. It looks a little bit odd, but the so-called "Plex'Eat" dining cylinder is designed to act as a protective shield that blocks the spread of the coronavirus and other airborne illnesses while still allowing you to eat out with friends and family.

Apple Watch Series 5 has a massive $100 discount at Amazon

BGR


It pretty much goes without saying that every new generation of an Apple product is better than all the generations that preceded it. Apple's not going to spend all that time and money developing new devices that are inferior, after all. That said, some upgrades are more substantial than others and people who own an Apple Watch Series 5 tend to boat about it more than most.

Compared to early versions of the Apple Watch, the Series 5 model is definitely better in every way. It's far faster and more powerful thanks to the 64-bit dual-core S5 processor that is up to two times faster than the S3 chipset that powers the only other model that's still available, the Apple Watch Series 3. It also has a larger AMOLED display with thinner bezels for a much better look, as well as a new always-on feature so you don't have to wait for your watch face to light up to see the time and all your beloved complications.

Heart rate monitoring is of course still a central feature of the Apple Watch, but Apple's Series 5 model also adds a built-in ECG app that's unlike anything that has come before it thanks to electrical and optical heart sensors. It can call emergency services if you fall and warn you about an irregular heart rate, and so much more. Heck, it's even "swimproof" so you can wear it in the pool or shower and not have to worry about it getting damaged.

Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS, 40mm) - Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band: $299.99

Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS, 44mm) - Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band: $329.99

Needless to say, all that comes with a fairly steep price tag that can reach well over $1,000 depending on the model you choose. That said, Amazon is offering some fantastic discounts that can save you a bunch of money on Apple's latest and greatest smartwatches. Prices start at just $299.99 for an Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS, 40mm) with a Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band, which normally sells for $400. Note that in some cases like this one, there's an additional discount that's applied by Amazon at checkout.

If that version is too small, you can also pick up the same Apple Watch Series 5 in Space Gray with a 44mm case instead for just $329.99. That's also a $100 discount just like the smaller version, and it won't last long. Note that each watch has just a $15 discount on the product pages, but extra $85 discounts are applied at checkout.

Get the $450 Roomba 891 for $299.99 in Amazon’s special 1-day sale

BGR


There are so many robot vacuums out there these days that have unbelievably low prices. What's more, many of them are rated just as high on Amazon as more expensive Roomba robot vacuum models. Can you really get a robotic vacuum cleaner for half the price of a Roomba? The answer is yes, but there's a big asterisk. If you're only cleaning up dust and very light dirt, just about any robot vacuum will do. If it has to tangle with pet hair and other cleanups that are a bit trickier, you're going to want a Roomba.

As it happens, Amazon is running a fantastic sale right now on the iRobot Roomba 891 Robot Vacuum, a top-rated model that can take care of stubborn pet hair with ease. It also has a very powerful motor that's still somehow nice and quiet, and it even works with Alexa voice commands. All those features typically cost $450, but Amazon's special one-day sale slashes the price down to just $299.99. That's a phenomenal deal!

If you're willing to pay a bit more, you'll also find that the $1,000 Roomba i7+ that empties itself when it's done cleaning is on sale right now with an even bigger $200 discount. If $799.99 is a bit too hefty a price tag for you, the Roomba 891 for just $299.99 is the best deal you'll find.

iRobot Roomba 891 Robot Vacuum- Wi-Fi Connected, Works with Alexa, Ideal for Pet Hair, Carpets,…: $299.99

Dr. Fauci finally has some good news about the coronavirus second wave

BGR


Ever since we began to get a slight hold on the rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic, fears of a dreaded "coronavirus second wave" have permeated news coverage and press conferences from health experts. It's true that a second wave — i.e. another huge spike in cases after a calm period — is potentially in the cards for us. But Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, says that it may be possible for us to avoid it.

After repeatedly warning that we should prepare for a potentially dramatic increase in the number of new coronavirus cases, Fauci told CNN that there's reason to be hopeful that we can avoid it. The key to making that more optimistic outlook a reality is action.

Tim Cook addresses George Floyd killing in company-wide email

BGR


The killing of George Floyd over Memorial Day, coupled with the delay to arrest and charge Derek Chauvin, set off a wave of mass protests across scores of major U.S. cities this past weekend. In the blink of an eye, issues of racial inequality and police abuse became national topics of conversation to a degree we haven't seen in decades.

The Floyd killing, of course, didn't occur in a vacuum and was preceded by the vigilante murder of Ahmaud Arbery in Atlanta and the recent video of a white woman in Central Park hysterically calling the cops and lying about being threatened by an African American birdwatcher.

Webcams are finally back in stock at Amazon – if you hurry

BGR


Among our readers, there is absolutely no question that face masks make up the top-selling category of product right now — and it just so happens that Amazon's best-selling face masks are back in stock today, in case you've been waiting. It's pretty easy to understand why they're so popular since the CDC recommends that people wear this type of face mask for protection anytime they leave their homes. They're not as effective as medical-grade face masks, of course, but they're more than good enough to protect you and those around you if you also practice social distancing and good hygiene.

Apart from face masks, the second-most popular type of product people want right now is a webcam. Most nonessential businesses are still closed at this point, and if they're smart they'll probably be closed until at least sometime in June. That means you're in store for a whole lot of video conferencing in the weeks and potentially months to come. Even if you don't use video for work or school, there's a good chance you use them to chat with family and friends. Tired of holding up your phone the whole time? Don't worry, because webcams are finally starting to arrive back in stock at Amazon.

Head over to Amazon's webcam page to scroll around and check them out, but there are a few in particular that are shipping out soon at prices that are actually quite reasonable. If you've shopped for a webcam anytime recently, then you know that prices have been gouged for months now. A simple webcam that might have sold for $30 or $40 earlier this year can now easily cost $150, $175, or even more. Amazon isn't doing anything to stop it, but luckily we've found a few options that are in stock right now at reasonable prices.

The Logitech C270 Webcam is one of the most popular models out there, which makes sense considering how big Logitech is in this space. This model is ready to ship right now, and while prices were over $200 at one point, it's back down in the $60-range for the time being.

Logitech C270 Webcam - Black - USB 2.0: $58.45

If you want a solid upgrade to a 1080p model and you don't care about the Logitech brand since they're pretty much all on par anyway these days, the Weicha 1080P HD Webcam with Microphone is in stock for $54.99 and new orders will be delivered this week. You can also get Angetube 1080P USB Webcam for $48.99 right now and it'll ship out almost as quickly.

Last but not least, if you want to spend as little as possible you can pick up a Joupugi 720p HD USB Webcam right now for just $30.99. It'll take a little bit longer to ship, but it still should arrive next week if you order soon.

AirPods Pro are back down to Amazon’s lowest price – but the deal is hidden

BGR


If you want AirPods Pro and you want to pay as little as possible, there are a dozen renewed AirPods Pro units in stock right now on Amazon for just $219.95 each. That is by far the lowest price we've seen and they will definitely sell out very soon now that the cat is out of the bag. Before you commit to refurbs, however, there's another great deal that you might not even realize is available on Amazon because it's hidden. Thanks to a small price drop and another special discount that's applied at checkout, brand new AirPods Pro are back down to the lowest price ever on Amazon.

Apple AirPods Pro (Renewed): $219.95

If you follow the BGR Deals team's coverage — and you obviously do, since you don't want to miss all the best deals out there each day — you know that Apple's AirPods were on sale all week last week at their lowest prices ever on Amazon. That includes the highly sought-after AirPods Pro as well as both of Apple's AirPods 2 models, with discounts up to $50. The bad news is that both models have jumped back up to their earlier prices, so AirPods 2 with wireless charging are now $169 and AirPods Pro are listed at $234.95 instead of $277.99.

What many people don't realize about Amazon's new AirPods Pro deal, however, is that there's an extra hidden discount that is applied when you check out. Amazon will slash an additional $6.96 off the price, which drops these super-popular earphones back down to Amazon's all-time lowest price!

Apple AirPods Pro: $227.99

Next up, AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case still have the biggest discount among AirPods both in terms of dollar value and in terms of the percentage of the price drop. These $199 headphones can be had for just $169 today, which is a solid deal for popular cord-free earbuds that would cost you $199 right now from any Apple store.

Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $169.00

If you're looking to spend as little as possible and you don't care about wireless charging, you can still save $20 on entry-level AirPods 2. They were on sale for $129.99 earlier this week and that deal is done, which is definitely a bummer. They're still on sale for $139 though, and you won't find a lower price anywhere else.

Apple AirPods with Charging Case: $139.00

Netflix is releasing 46 original movies and shows in June – here’s the complete list

BGR


May was a positively huge month for new releases on Netflix, and you can check out the full list of new Netflix original movies and shows for the month of May if you don't believe us. You should check it out even if you do believe us, as a matter of fact, because there's so much great content to be found that you undoubtedly missed something. Brand new stand up specials from Jerry Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt and new seasons of hit shows like Dead to Me and Workin’ Moms are just the tip of the iceberg in May's release lineup. And of course the star of the show last month was the debut season of Space Force, the new Greg Daniels show starring Steve Carell. That's right, the creator of The Office has a new Netflix show starring Steve Carell!

Once you've caught up on anything you might've missed from last month, it's time to turn your attention to June 2020. A ton of new movies were just added to Netflix's catalog today, including classics like Clueless, The Silence of the Lambs, V for Vendetta, and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. But the real news is the 46 different original movies, shows, and specials that Netflix will premiere over the course of the month, so let's focus on those.

The farewell season of Fuller House hits Netflix on June 2nd, and then the fourth and final season of the hit series 13 Reasons Why will be released a few days later on June 5th. That's easily the most hotly anticipated release of the entire month. Other top releases in June include season 5 of Queer Eye, the return of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, a new season of F is for FamilyPokémon Journeys: The SeriesMarcella season 3, The Order season 2, and the second season of the hit show The Politician. You can also look forward to new stand-up specials from Jo Koy, Eric Andre, and George Lopez.

You'll find all that and more down below, along with links where available so you can watch the trailers or start streaming.

The coronavirus face masks people swarm Amazon for are now only 60¢

BGR


Economies are beginning to reopen prematurely in regions across the United States, which means that it's now more important than ever that you follow three simple rules every single time you leave your home. First and foremost, you must wear a face mask like the CDC recommends on its website. Second, you need to practice strict social distancing and stay away from other people whether or not they're wearing masks — and remember, 6 feet isn't far enough. And third, you need to ensure good hygiene by washing your hands as often as you can and by using hand sanitizer whenever you touch a surface outside your home. And don't worry, strong hand sanitizer is finally back in stock at Amazon.

There is definitely a second wave of novel coronavirus infections coming, but that doesn't mean we have to stop reopening the economy. Quite the contrary, in fact. As long as we follow the three crucial guidelines we outlined above, we can definitely slow the spread of COVID-19. With that in mind, our readers will be excited to learn that Amazon's best-selling face masks are not only back in stock today after selling out briefly over the weekend, but they're also down to a new all-time low price of just 60¢ each.

Face Mask, Pack of 50: $29.99 ($0.60 / mask)

You need to wear a face mask when you go out. Period. Even the CDC says so. People with nonessential jobs are still being advised to continue to shelter in place in most areas but even as businesses start to open up, you should still continue to quarantine yourself and only go out when you absolutely must. When you do have to go out to pick up groceries or do something else that is absolutely necessary, the CDC advises us all to use some type of protective face covering in order to limit the transmission of the novel coronavirus. That DOES NOT mean you should wear an N95 mask or even the KN95 masks that are now flooding the market from China. As long as you practice social distancing and good hygiene, a standard face mask will do just fine.

There are a bunch of different options out there that won't block healthcare professionals from getting the medical-grade face masks they all need so desperately. We recently told you how to quickly and easily make your own DIY face masks using supplies that you likely already have lying around your home, and they're far more effective than other cloth DIY face mask instructions you'll find online. If you want to step things up a bit, someone reverse-engineered an N95 face mask and posted instructions to make your own, complete with a virus neutralizer.

If you're not the DIY type though, don't worry because we have some excellent news for you.

Face Mask, Pack of 50: $29.99 ($0.60 / mask)

Last week, we told you that Amazon's best-selling face masks by Jointown were back in stock and available to ship out right away. The wildly popular Jointown masks are linked above, and now there's another best-seller that just came back in stock: XHW 3-ply face masks. They cost 70¢ per mask, so they're a great option if the Jointown masks sell out again.

Both of these options are 3-layer masks that do a great job of blocking things from your airways and preventing the virus from spreading if you already have it — provided you also take the necessary precautions and practice strict social distancing. These are not N95 masks or medical-grade surgical masks, and that's important to note. That said, the CDC recommends that we wear cloth face coverings like these masks anytime we leave the house. They're also much better than most of the cloth DIY face masks that people are sharing plans for online right now.

Disposable 3 Ply Face Mask, Pack of 50: $34.99 ($0.70 / mask)

When we told you about these face masks arriving back in stock on Amazon, tens of thousands of our readers rushed over to the site to buy them. Incredibly, however, these best-selling masks are still in stock and still available to ship right away. There are other face masks available right now on Amazon as well, so if shipping times start to slip back you can always use that page to find comparable masks. Another popular option among our readers lately is the even thicker MagiCare KN95 face mask. It's a bit pricier than the other ones we've mentioned, but plenty of people out there are willing to pay for the extra sense of security. The 3-ply masks are more than good enough for most situations, but it's smart to also have some KN95 masks on hand for higher-risk places like public transportation, airplanes, and doctor's offices.

Magicare 4-Ply Material Protection High Efficiency of Filtration, 3D Design for Better Fit the…: $64.99 ($3.25 / mask)

The aforementioned face masks from Amazon and the two DIY masks we linked earlier in this article are all great options, and they'll definitely do the job if you also remain vigilant. Stay at home unless you absolutely must go out. Practice social distancing and stay as far away from other people when you do have to leave the house. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer as frequently as possible, especially after touching surfaces outside of your home.

Samsung quietly launched a new smartphone subscription service

BGR


The Galaxy S20 series has hardly been the sales success Samsung envisioned, and that’s not just because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The health crisis affected smartphone sales across the board, particularly in the second quarter of the year, when more and more countries took unprecedented measures to limit the spread, leaving millions of people without a job. But the Galaxy S20’s main problem was the pricing structure. The cheapest version costs $999, before price discounts and other promos, which is $300 more than the most affordable iPhone 11 version. The iPhone 11, starting at $699, was the best-sold phone of the first quarter.

Samsung is getting ready to launch two new flagship phones, the Galaxy Note 20 series and the Galaxy Fold 2. Both of them will probably be expensive devices, with the next-gen foldable likely to cost more than $1,500. In preparation for that, Samsung quietly launched a new smartphone subscription service that could convince more people to buy more expensive phones.

Prediction: President Trump will blame a spike in coronavirus cases on all the protests

BGR


No question, this has been a depressing weekend in the US. Anyone who's opened their social media feeds since Friday night will have been greeted with scenes offering a mixture of peaceful, loud and emotional, and in some cases violent and out-of-control protests in major cities around the US, as the killing of an unarmed man named George Floyd by Minneapolis police touched a raw, painful nerve in the American psyche.

"LAW & ORDER!" reads a terse tweet President Trump posted Sunday afternoon, after using the social network earlier in he day to call on cities and states around the country to call in more National Guard troops. I point to the president's Twitter account, the subject of even more scrutiny than ever these days, because I fully expect to see some version of the following emanate from it soon: My prediction is that any surge in coronavirus cases over the coming days will be blamed by the president on the protestors who've filled the nation's streets this weekend.

‘Minecraft Dungeons’ review: Diabolically simple

BGR


Gauntlet and Diablo are my personal dungeon-crawling touchstones. Some nights I’d hole up in the study, plunging into the hellish depths beneath Tristram to defeat the Lord of Terror. Other nights, you could find me downstairs with my Nintendo 64, collecting keys and popping potions as enemies filled the screen.

I have had a soft spot for top-down hack-and-slash adventures ever since, which is why I was intrigued by Minecraft Dungeons from the moment it was announced. This action-oriented offshoot is set in the same universe as Minecraft, but removes all of the pivotal creative freedom that made Minecraft the biggest game ever. And yet, even without that freedom, Dungeons succeeds on its own merits by breaking the genre up into its component parts and only using the essentials to craft a compelling experience that gamers of any skill level can enjoy.

Audiences are actually loving ‘Space Force’ despite the terrible reviews

BGR


I have to confess, I was pretty surprised -- shocked might even be a better word -- at critics' almost across-the-board panning of Netflix's new Steve Carell-led series Space Force that debuted on the streaming service Friday. I spoke with creator Greg Daniels earlier this month about reuniting with Carell for this new 10-episode series, which fictionalizes the real-world creation of the US miliary's new Space Force that's happening concurrently with the show. I also previewed Season 1 before it debuted on Netflix, and barring a few of the growing pains that all new series generally grapple with during their inaugural season as they start to find their rhythm, I found the series to easily check the two boxes I require of any television series -- it both entertained and indulged me, in the same vein as previous TV series that Daniels has had a hand in creating, like The Office and Parks and Recreation.

Nevertheless, for the most part, early reviews were brutal. Slate called it "shockingly unfunny." From Mashable, a somewhat inscrutable critique: "Unfortunately, Netflix's Space Force lives up to its name." And from The Daily Beast: The show is a "confusing misfire, wasting serious potential." And the bad reviews keep piling up from there. Meanwhile, how do audiences feel, now that the series is actually live on Netflix?

Everything coming and going on Netflix the week of May 31st

BGR


June is a relatively light month for Netflix, at least compared to the rest of 2020 up to this point, but there are a few undeniable highlights coming in the first week. First up is the fourth and final season of 13 Reasons Why, which has never been able to recapture the magic of its first season, but still has a dedicated following that will be intrigued to see how the story concludes. And as the first day of the month happens to fall on Monday of this week, we're also getting a ton of licensed movies, including Clueless, E.T., V for Vendetta, and Lady Bird.
