Bill Gates thinks these 3 coronavirus drugs ‘could cut the death rate dramatically’

BGR


He may not be a doctor or health official, but Bill Gates is still a voice to listen to during the novel coronavirus pandemic. The Microsoft co-founder turned out to be quite the visionary, as he foresaw the dangers of an infectious disease that would catch the world off guard, and that's precisely what happened with COVID-19.

The new virus is indeed very contagious, and nobody is safe from it. The virus spreads in the winter and the summer, and it may never be eradicated. But the world could have been in a much better place than it is right now. China stalled its response and revealed the virus was spreading human-to-human later than it could have. The US and other governments minimized the threat, failing to prepare accordingly for the imminent outbreaks. Restrictions were then lifted too soon in some regions, including US states, and that drove the infection rate to record highs. Add to that all the conspiracy theories that eroded the public's trust and empowered anti-mask movements, and you get the complete picture of the pandemic.

Gates wasted no time getting involved in vaccine research funding, explaining the need to act as quickly as possible to advance the development of drugs that can potentially shield the world from COVID-19 in the coming years. He was not afraid to evaluate and criticize the government's response along the way, and offer advice. In a new interview, Gates explained that three types of drugs that are currently in testing could "could cut the death rate dramatically" before vaccines become available.

Feared dead, man emerges from woods five years after going missing

BGR


Normally, when a guy goes missing for five years, a happy ending isn't expected. When Ricardas Puisys of Wisbech, Cambridgeshire in England disappeared in late 2015, it was suspected that he had been murdered. Nobody was ever charged in the case, and that's a good thing, because Puisys was just found alive and well after spending the past half-decade living in the woods.

`Prior to being found, the last anyone had seen of Puisys was on the evening of September 26th, 2015, when he left work and joined "a small group of Lithuanian men," according to The Guardian. When he failed to show up for work the following days, a search was conducted, but a body was never found.

Elon Musk thinks ‘China rocks’ because the US has too many entitled, spoiled brats

BGR


This might seem like an odd time for a high-profile American industrialist to be praising China, but while Elon Musk has been accused of many things during his leadership at Tesla and SpaceX thus far, predictability is one label he's definitely never been tagged with.

Indeed, during a period when relations between the US and China are the frostiest and most tense they've been in decades, and at a time when millions of Americans are reeling from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, Musk has been describing China in surprisingly glowing terms -- going as far in a new interview as raving that "China rocks" while practically in the same breath lamenting what the controversial billionaire sees as too much "entitlement" and complacency here at home.

Science proves that microwaves suck at almost everything

Microwaves are one of those modern conveniences that everyone uses but that nobody is particularly fond of. I mean let's be real here, you know that heating stuff up on your stove is the better way to do it, but the microwave is just so much faster, so you sacrifice quality in the name of speed. Now, science has proven that microwaves do indeed suck, even if you're just heating up a cup of water.

The research, which was published in the journal AIP Advances, examines the way microwaves heat vessels of liquid. Compared to other heating methods, the microwave is a sad alternative.

All of which is to say, this is a doctor who's given a new interview -- to the USA Today editorial board -- that more than lives up to the adjective inherent in his name, and which also can easily serve as the only coronavirus update you need today.

Dr. Fauci warns of trouble ahead if we can’t keep the number of new coronavirus cases under 10,000

BGR


Despite Trump's remarks claiming that the coronavirus is "under control," the reality is that the coronavirus remains an ongoing and serious concern in the United States. Just a few days ago, Florida, North Carolina, and California all reported a record number of coronavirus-related deaths in a 24-hour period. So while some people initially thought that the spike in new coronavirus cases was solely a function of more widespread testing, a rising number of hospital admissions and deaths seems to invalidate that theory.

With the United States still struggling to get a handle on COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci recently told NBC News that the U.S. is poised to have a really big problem on its hands if it can't get the daily number of new coronavirus cases below 10,000 before fall. The reason why fall will be an especially crucial time for the coronavirus is that it coincides with flu season and cooler temperatures which make it easier for the virus to spread.

Xbox Series X games will have touch controls on Project xCloud

BGR


Microsoft and Sony are approaching this console generation from two completely different directions. While Sony is focusing all of its energy on the PS5, Microsoft wants you to play Xbox games on every device you own, even if you don't upgrade to Xbox Series X. One of the pillars of this strategy will be the Project xCloud game streaming service, and on Tuesday, Microsoft confirmed that xCloud will launch on Android phones and tablets on September 15th for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. Over 100 games will be playable, including Gears 5 and Destiny 2.

In a video shared on Tuesday, Microsoft details the necessities for using the service: An active subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, an Android device, the Xbox Game Pass mobile app, high-speed LTE or Wi-Fi connection, and a compatible Xbox controller. But for some games, the last one will actually be optional.

SpaceX forced to abort Starship ‘hop’ after engine trouble

BGR


Between trips to the International Space Station, satellite launches, and the seemingly neverending deployment of the company's own Starlink communications hardware, SpaceX has a lot of projects going on at any given moment. One of its biggest is Starship, the company's big bet on the future of space travel that could one day ferry humans to other planets and — if SpaceX boss Elon Musk is right — other star systems.

Before it can do any of that, it has to actually make it off the ground, and it almost did so yesterday. The company's SN5 Starship prototype was being readied to fly on its first sub-orbital "hop" test when an issue popped up at the last possible second.

You can watch ‘Mulan’ on Disney+ in September – for an extra $30

BGR


In a huge, surprise announcement for movie audiences made on Tuesday afternoon along with its latest earnings presentation, Disney has announced that it will let Disney+ subscribers enjoy a major upcoming release (Mulan) on the streaming service at the same time that the film debuts in markets where cinemas are currently open.

In addition to being offered on September 4 via video on demand, Disney+ subscribers will be asked to pay an extra $29.99 fee to be able to stream Mulan, which had been delayed more than once since its original planned release date in March of this year. The reason for the delay, of course, was the coronavirus pandemic, which has completely wrecked almost all of the Hollywood release schedule for 2020, forcing delays and alternate plans as some films opted to go the VOD route in lieu of a traditional theatrical release.

Trump says a coronavirus vaccine could be ready ‘far in advance of the end of the year’

BGR


It's possible that we will never completely rid ourselves of the novel coronavirus, but sooner or later, the pandemic will come to an end. In some parts of the world, it already has, as countries like Italy, Canada, and the UK have managed to get their infection rates under control, while New Zealand has all but eradicated the virus.

Unfortunately, the US hasn't fared quite as well, and although the number of new cases has recently plateaued, tens of thousands of Americans are still testing positive for COVID-19 every day. Without drastic action by the government or a readily available vaccine, the US is going to be in trouble for months to come, but according to the president, we won't be waiting much longer for a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine.

This dinosaur lived with cancer, then died in a flood

BGR


Dinosaurs lived in a time where dangers lurked around every corner. The food chain dictated who lived and who died, and for plant-eaters, avoiding hungry carnivores was of utmost importance. We don't often think of dinosaurs suffering from medical conditions, but they were animals all the same, and a new study reveals that when they weren't dodging sharp teeth, they even battled cancer.

The research, which was published in the journal The Lancet Oncology, reveals that a dinosaur specimen suffered from a severe form of bone cancer some 77 million years ago. The creature was a Centrosaurus apertus, a herbivore that would have spent its days grazing and avoiding predators. Unfortunately, this particular dino had to do so with a seriously messed up hind leg.

Whistleblower makes the wildest claim yet about the coronavirus origin in China

BGR


A pair of reports a few weeks ago featured interviews with a so-called coronavirus whistleblower who said that China had early evidence of person-to-person transmission. Dr. Li-Meng Yan fled Honk Kong for fear of repercussions from China on account of the COVID-19 revelations she was about to share. She claimed she has evidence that China lied about the virus, but did not share any proof at the time.

That China lied about the emergence of the novel coronavirus isn’t a secret. Some make these allegations more cautiously while others are rather blunt about it, but China has been anything but transparent about the virus. More than seven months after its emergence, we still have no idea how the virus began spreading, and China’s COVID-19 caseload statistics can’t be trusted. Yan’s claims can’t be verified either though, and officials have denied her story so far, which is what you’d expect from a regime not too fond of whistleblowers. But Yan has now emerged in the news again, making what is easily her wildest accusation so far. The scientist isn’t offering any palpable evidence of her new claims, and it’s unclear what sort of US authorities she has been in contact with if any. Before her story goes viral on social media and spawns a new wave of conspiracy theories about the virus, it’s important to make it clear that she may be making it all up.

Did we finally just learn when Sony’s PS5 price and release date announcement is coming?

BGR


With less than five months to go until 2020 is over, we still have no idea how much the PS5 and Xbox Series X are going to cost. Reports have suggested that both consoles could top $500, but we have not heard anything from Sony or Microsoft, and neither company has even offered a timeframe for when we can expect to learn more. But with both consoles on track to launch this holiday season, announcements are undoubtedly imminent.

In a report about Sony's quarterly earnings on Tuesday, Bloomberg cited a PlayStation official who said "Sony’s next announcement regarding the PlayStation 5 is tentatively scheduled for this month." The report didn't include any other details about the announcement, but the implication seems to be that the announcement will be on the same scale as the Future of Gaming event that showed PS5 games in action for the first time in June.

It can be hard to keep up with the relentless torrent of tweets that President Trump sends out on a daily basis, let alone stay abreast of what's newsworthy or not -- with a recent tweet from the commander-in-chief underscoring this very thing for those of you eagerly waiting on a new stimulus check.

The president's feed is an endless cascade of retweets and stream-of-consciousness rambles from off the top of his head, with the occasional newsworthy missive slipped into the mix, as was the case over the weekend. In between retweets of fawning praise of the president and attacks on the press, Trump slipped in a fact that many of you might not be aware of about the new stimulus bill that's currently hung up in the Senate -- specifically, regarding the funding it would make possible to support a new wave of stimulus checks sent out to most Americans.

iOS 14 beta 4 now available to download for developers

BGR


Apple seeded the fourth iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 beta releases to developers on Tuesday, just under two weeks after the last beta release. Although there have been minor issues here and there, the iOS 14 betas have been surprisingly stable up to this point, and having made the leap to iOS 14 last month, I have yet to run into any problems that would make me consider reverting back to iOS 13 ahead of the public release this fall.

As usual, the latest beta includes various bug fixes and improvements. The good news is that iOS 14 beta 4 should resolve the accidental disabling of 3D Touch that users were experiencing. According to Apple's website, beta 4 also resolves an issue that was causing the App Store to quit unexpectedly when Full Keyboard Access is enabled, adds the ExposureNotification framework, and lets you reach HomeKit accessories when your device is locked.

Air Omni is the wireless charging station Apple fans have been begging for

BGR


Remember how excited people got when Apple unveiled the AirPower charger back in 2017? Apple's idea was terrific, and having a single wireless charging pad that could handle all of your devices at once would've been great. Sadly, AirPower turned out to be vaporware and Apple never actually released it. It seems like a lifetime ago, but the disappointment is still fresh.

Plenty of smartphone accessory brands have looked to fill the void by offering multi-device wireless chargers of their own, and some are actually pretty decent. None offer the kind of quality that you would get from a premium device maker like Apple though. At least, none until Pitaka came along and released the new Air Omni.

Pitaka, makers of everyone's favorite ultra-slim iPhone case, has created a novel 6-in-1 charging station that can handle all of your devices and then some. Where wireless charging is concerned, you'll find one large zone for your iPhone, a second one for AirPods 2 or AirPods Pro, and a wireless charging disc for the Apple Watch. Then there's also a stand with a Lightning connector for an iPad or second iPhone, plus two USB ports on the side, one USB-A, and one USB-C. Do you have a newer iPad Pro that doesn't work with Lightning connectors? No problem: A simple little toggle switches the connector in front of the stand from Lightning to USB-C.

The Pitaka Air Omni is a fantastic charging station that truly covers all the bases. It's a must-have device for any Apple fan and it's available right now from Amazon.

PITAKA Air Omni 6-in-1 Multi-Functional Wireless Charging Station with Minimalist Design Compat…: $159.00

At least two explosions including one massive blast rocked the city of Beirut, Lebanon on Tuesday afternoon. According to reports from Lebanese media, the fire and resulting explosions were not acts of terrorism or war, but rather an accident in a large warehouse that housed fireworks.

Coronavirus victim’s viral obituary slams Trump and anti-maskers

BGR


More than 6.15 million people had been infected with the novel coronavirus at the time of this writing, and nearly 11.7 million have recovered. But more than 701,000 people have died of COVID-19 complications so far, with US deaths totaling 159,000. The good news is that fewer people are dying after going on mechanical ventilation than in the first few months of the pandemic, as doctors have devised better treatment protocols and trained themselves to assist critical patients better than before. But as the virus continues to spread at alarming rates, more and more people are infected. A percentage of those will continue to die, and things could worsen as some hospital systems become overwhelmed. The transmission rates would go down again if everyone respected the guidelines meant to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. But anti-maskers and people who refuse to social distancing are a driving factor in the spread of this potentially deadly virus. Their disregard for the rules might get them infected, and they also risk infecting loved ones as well as strangers. Some of those strangers could develop complications and even die. That was the case with a 79-year-old man who did everything right but still ended up succumbing to a COVID-19 infection last month. His wife wrote an obituary that went viral, blaming the severity of the pandemic on politicians and people who disregard the rules.

Today’s top deals: Return of 50¢ face masks, Lysol wipes, Clorox wipes, $5 Alexa smart plugs, crazy

BGR

There are so many hot daily deals we need to tell you about on Tuesday, like Amazon's best-selling coronavirus face masks back on sale for $0.50 each, wildly popular MagiCare KN95 face masks for $1.65 apiece that normally sell for $70 per 20-pack, and the return of reader-favorite SupplyAID KN95 face mask 5-packs for just $17.60. But before we get to the rest of the deals, we need to cover a few hot items that aren't technically "deals." Sanitizing wipes are in such high demand right now that single canisters can be priced as high as $35. Today, however, we found some of the best prices Amazon has seen in months. Clorox wipes in Fresh Scent and Clorox Wipes in Orange Fusion are available for $17 right now, and 6-packs of Clorox wipes are available for about the same price per wipe. Lysol wipes are a bit more expensive at $0.27 per wipe instead of $0.23 or $0.24 like the Clorox wipes. Again, these prices are still quite inflated and you should only order wipes if you have an urgent need, but prices aren't going to come down anytime soon and these listings are about half as expensive as what we've been seeing lately.

Other top daily deals today include 1-liter Purell refill packs for $39.99 and 12-packs of 16-ounce Purell bottles at the lowest price per ounce on Amazon, AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case with a massive $59 discount that slashes them to a new all-time low price, Alexa-enabled smart plugs for just $5.10 each, actual Logitech C270 webcams in stock for $49.99, an even better webcam with 1080p resolution for $10 less, Amazon's top-selling 15W fast wireless charger for $8.99, the ultimate charging station for Apple fans for $159, a one-day sale that shaves $84 off a top-selling electric toothbrush and water flosser combo, $50 off Chef IQ's best-selling Instant Pot rival, an electric hair clipper kit with everything you need to give yourself a haircut, and more.

Dr. Fauci says there’s a ‘silver lining’ to the coronavirus pandemic

BGR


We're living in the midst of a global pandemic the likes of which no living person on Earth has ever seen before. It's bad (wear your mask!) but it could always be worse. In a new interview with BET's Marc Lamont Hill, Dr. Anthony Fauci — the top infectious disease expert in the country — offers a slim upside to the disproportionate number of cases hitting minority communities.

No race has been spared from the virus's wrath, but the rate of infections among the Black and Latinx communities is significantly higher than that of white citizens. In fact, those minority groups are seeing roughly three times as many infections as their white counterparts. Dr. Fauci says that, if we handle it the right way, these statistics could lead to real change in the balance of medical care across racial lines.

WHO’s China investigation is over – but the novel coronavirus origins are still a mystery

BGR


Where did it all start, and how did it happen? This is the novel coronavirus question to answer, and China has done little to offer the world a plausible explanation. The initial version of events said a Wuhan wet market in China was ground zero for COVID-19. The virus was not created in a lab, nor did it escape from the Wuhan research facility.  But several months ago, China said the market was a victim of the pandemic rather than the source, while still maintaining the Wuhan lab was not involved in any way. Then China tried to shift the blame to other regions, seemingly in an effort to negotiate its way out this mess ahead of the World Health Organization (WHO) probe of Wuhan. It didn't work, and now the WHO's initial investigation has been completed. The WHO did not offer any answers about progress made in the past few weeks, but the organization still insists that it is important to determine how the pandemic started.

42 movies and shows are leaving Netflix in August – here’s the full list

BGR


Netflix subscribers have plenty to look forward to in August 2020, with more than 100 new releases lined up over the course of the month. That includes an impressive 60 different Netflix original movies, specials, and full seasons of scripted series. There's plenty to be excited about, but the highlights are definitely Lucifer season 5 and the new action-thriller Project Power starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You can see all that and more in our earlier coverage.

Sadly, it's not all good news. There's definitely plenty of great new content coming to the platform this month, but there are also a bunch of great movies and shows that are scheduled to disappear over the course of the month. The losses started right away on August 1st and then the rest are scattered throughout the month. The biggest blow comes on August 31st when Netflix is scheduled to lose a whopping 25 movies in a single day. The list includes the first two Bad Boys movies, Clueless, Groundhog Day, Jerry Maguire, Karate Kid I-III, and V for Vendetta. The only good news is that since all those titles are departing on the last day of the month, you have plenty of time to watch them before they're gone.

You'll find the complete list below of all the movies and shows leaving Netflix in August 2020.

Logitech’s best-selling webcam is finally back on Amazon

BGR


There's no question that face masks and hand sanitizers are the best-selling products among our readers these days. The reason is obvious since the CDC recommends that people wear face masks for protection from the novel coronavirus anytime they leave their homes. In addition to face masks and social distancing, you should also be using strong hand sanitizer anytime you touch an object or surface outside your home.

Another very popular type of product so many people want right now is a webcam. Even nonessential businesses that have opened often let people continue working from home these days, and if they're smart they'll keep that policy in place for the foreseeable future. On top of that, a lot of schooling this coming semester is going to happen online. That means you're in store for a whole lot of video conferencing in the weeks and months to come. Even if you don't use video calling apps for work or school, there's a good chance you use them to chat with family and friends.

Are you tired of holding up your phone the whole time? Don't worry, because webcams are finally starting to arrive back in stock at Amazon.

Check out Amazon's webcam page and you'll find tons of good options in stock right now, 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 in January probably cost $150, $175, or even more once the pandemic hit the US. 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 to $49.99 for the time being.

Logitech C270 3MP 1280 x 720pixels USB 2.0 Black Webcam: $49.99

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 $35.99 and new orders will be delivered this week. You can also get the top-rated ToLuLu HD 1080p Webcam for $39.99 right now and it'll ship out immediately with free Prime delivery.

Webcam HD 1080p Web Camera, USB PC Computer Webcam with Microphone, Laptop Desktop Full HD Came…: $39.99

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 $25.98 thanks to a discount and an extra coupon you can clip. It'll take a little bit longer to ship, but it still should arrive next week if you order soon.

Clorox and Lysol wipes are down to the lowest prices in months on Amazon

BGR


If you're on the lookout for coronavirus essentials that are currently on sale at deep discounts, there are a few good options you can take advantage of on Amazon. First and foremost, the retailer's best-selling 3-ply coronavirus face masks are back on sale today for just $0.50 each and they're flying off the shelves. MagiCare KN95 face masks have been even more popular lately among our readers, and 20-packs have a retail price of just under $70. Head over to Amazon right now though, and you can pick up 20-packs for just $33 each, which works out to $1.65 per mask. Top-selling SupplyAID KN95 face masks are also back in stock right now at a lower price, but they could sell out soon. Also don't miss out on SupplyAID hand sanitizer with a slight discount — at 80% alcohol content, it's even stronger than Purell.

Two things you won't find on sale right now or anytime soon are disinfecting wipes and Purell hand sanitizer. The former has been particularly gouged lately, with Lysol wipes and Clorox wipes selling for as much as $35 per canister. There are tons of people out there with a desperate need for disinfecting wipes from top brands that they know they can rely on, so they're willing to pay these exorbitant prices. If you're one of them, however, we've got some good news.

It's going to be a very long time before prices on top brands online really start to come down. Think mid-2021. That said, we scoured Amazon today and managed to come across a few listings for disinfecting wipes that are priced at about half of the crazy prices we've been seeing out there over the past few months.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, Fresh Scent, 75 Count: $16.99 ($0.23 / count)

CLO01686 - Disinfecting Wipes, 7 X 8, Orange Fusion, 75/Canister: $16.98 ($0.23 / count)

Clorox wipes offer the best value right now, with a price per wipe of $0.23 if you buy individual canisters. Clorox wipes in Fresh Scent and Clorox wipes in Orange Fusion are both in stock right now, but you had better believe they're going to sell out fast so you'll need to hurry if you want some. You can also buy packs of Clorox wipes in bulk once those listings inevitably sell out. You'll pay $0.24 per wipe, which is about the same.

Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, Bleach Free Cleaning Wipes - Fresh Scent, 75 Count: $109.99 ($0.24 / count)

In addition to those listings, you can also pick up Lysol Disinfecting Wipes right now if you hurry. You'll pay $0.27 per wipe when you pick up a 4-pack of 80-count containers.

Bathroom and Kitchen Cleaning Wipes, Multi Purpose Scented Wipes - 4 Bags (320 Total Wipes): $84.98 (0.27 / count)

Again, these prices are all still inflated and you should only buy these wipes if you really need them. That said, these prices are about half the crazy prices we've seen on other listings lately on Amazon, and this stuff isn't going to get cheaper anytime soon. In fact, if Purell prices are any indication, we can expect disinfecting wipes from top brands to get even more expensive online in the coming weeks and months.

Surprise sale slashes Amazon’s best-selling coronavirus face masks back to 50¢

BGR


At this point, everyone should have come to terms with the fact that the novel coronavirus pandemic definitely isn't going anywhere anytime soon. COVID-19 infections have exploded in most states around the United States, with only a small handful of places like New York and New Jersey having managed to get things somewhat under control. Needless to say, that all may change as soon as next month if schools begin to reopen. The multi-billion dollar corporation that is Major League Baseball couldn't even go one full week without a COVID-19 outbreak that tore through the Florida Marlins organization. Do you really think elementary schools, high schools, and colleges will be able to do any better?

Fortunately, there's some good news as well. Unlike the first coronavirus spike back in March and April, people now have plenty of access to the tools they need to help protect themselves from COVID-19. We're talking about strong hand sanitizers from top brands including Purell hand sanitizer and Suave hand sanitizer, and of course, face masks. And when it comes to the latter, we have a big surprise for our readers on Thursday.

Jointown 3-ply face masks have been the best-selling coronavirus face masks ever since the pandemic first reached the US. They work well in low-risk situations when combined with strict social distancing, and they're sold directly by Amazon as opposed to a third-party. What's more, they're extremely affordable — with a normal retail price of $29.99 for a box of 50 masks, they cost just $0.60 apiece.

That's already a tremendous value for such an essential tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. But today, a special Amazon sale with double discounts slashes the price to a new all-time low. A 10% discount plus an extra $3 coupon you can clip on the product page drops the price of a 50-pack of Jointown coronavirus face masks to just $23.95. That works out to only $0.50 per mask!

Jointown Face Mask, Pack of 50 (5081): $23.95 ($0.50 / mask)

As we noted, those Jointown masks are great for everyday use in low-risk situations. Anytime you're stuck in close quarters around other people, however, you should definitely use a more effective mask.

Best-selling MagiCare KN95 face masks that normally cost $70 for a box of 20 have gotten a very deep discount today; 20-packs are now just $33, which works out to $1.65 per mask. And if you want the best of the best, there are two extremely rare opportunities right now on Amazon. You can pick up a 5-pack of actual 3M KN95 face masks, and there are also somehow 3M N100 face masks in stock that filter a whopping 99.97% of airborne particulates as opposed to around 95% with an N95 or KN95 face mask. Finally, SupplyAID KN95 face masks are also back in stock at Amazon and they've been hugely popular with our readers lately.

Whether you're riding public transportation, visiting a doctor's office, flying on an airplane, or doing anything else that involves being in close quarters with other people, you absolutely need a higher-quality mask like an N95, KN95, or N100 face mask.

WhatsApp just rolled out a feature every chat app needs

BGR


One of the worst things that are happening during the novel coronavirus pandemic is the constant fake news attack on social media. All sorts of crazy conspiracy theories and COVID-19 cure spread like wildfire on instant messaging apps, and it’ll be a while until tech companies can fix this problem. We’ve all got family members who share some of these stories as soon as they reach the internet, and — hopefully — we’re all trying to reasonably debunk the claims as they come in. But the reality is often not worthy of going viral, and people might be more likely to believe fake news about the virus than what’s happening in the world.

As the world’s most popular chat app, WhatsApp is one of the places where fake news thrives, and where they can go viral with any oversight. WhatsApp happens to be Facebook’s only chat app that supports end-to-end encryption, which is a great feature to have in mobile apps. But that means Facebook can’t come up with any idea to block the spread of fake news, coronavirus-related, or other campaigns. Facebook is trying to make it more difficult for conspiracy theories to spread, and the company has just released what’s easily one of the best tool to fight fake news campaigns: Google.

HP will help you head Back to School… whether it’s in class or online

BGR

Nobody knows quite what to expect anytime they are heading out the door in this day and age. The world has changed during these past few months and it likely will never be as it was before. During the pandemic, people have had to constantly adapt to different ways of life. One of the biggest changes has been to our schools, as it isn't safe for our children to go back to learning the way they previously did. No matter what the upcoming school year is going to look like, HP is here for you and your family.

Thanks to HP's annual Back to School sales event, you'll be able to pick up some much-needed upgrades to your devices, especially if your kids are going to be remote learning for a few days, a week, or all year round.

Two schoolgirls spotted an asteroid headed straight for Earth

BGR


When I was 14, my biggest accomplishment was probably related to catching some sweet air off of a ramp with my bike. For two very talented teenagers in India, anything less than making a groundbreaking astronomical discovery is small potatoes. The duo, which has lofty aspirations for their future in science, spotted a previously undetected asteroid headed for our planet.

Using images captured from a telescope operated by the University of Hawaii, Vaidehi Vekariya and Radhika Lakhani managed to locate the asteroid, which carries the scientific label HLV2514, won't venture near Earth for some time, but now it's up to NASA to confirm its existence as well as its orbit.

What’s going on with Google’s Pixel 5 launch?

BGR


Google did something different with the Pixel phones this year, and it’s all because of the novel coronavirus health crisis. The Pixel 4a saw a three-month delay, and the handset will only reach consumers later this month. That’s probably why Google also soft-launched two other Pixel phones the other day, the Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5. Google confirmed all the recent rumors that said it would have three new Pixels in stores this year, including two Pixel 4a flavors and the Pixel 5. COVID-19 pandemic aside, this wasn’t going to be the year of the Pixel 5. Reports in the first months of the year said the Pixel 5 would not match the hardware of other 2020 flagships, and all the rumors that followed confirmed the first 5G premium Pixel phone Google ever made will be a mid-range device that could still be quite expensive. Google is yet to confirm those rumors, but Pixel rumors usually come true. The company’s Pixel 4a announcement does reveal an unexpected detail about the Pixel 5, however. Google won’t even try that hard to sell you one.

This beetle can somehow survive being eaten by a predator

BGR


In the animal kingdom, if you get eaten that's usually the end of the road. It's a gruesome reality but that's just the way it goes. Unless, of course, you're a Regimbartia attenuata, a beetle that doesn't let being swallowed get it down. Instead, it makes a break for the door... the back door, that is.

As the New York Times reports, a new study published in Current Biology reveals the beetle's incredibly unique escape behavior. In case it wasn't clear from the "back door" comment, the beetle avoids being killed after being swallowed whole by crawling its way through its predator's — typically a frog — guts and prompting it to poop the bug out.

Coronavirus antibody tests might come back negative for people who had mild cases

BGR


COVID-19 immunity is one of the most important topics of research right now, but the novel coronavirus is too new to give us a definitive answer to the most important question we have: Is reinfection possible? The management of outbreaks and future vaccination policies might hinge on the answer. Researchers think that the novel coronavirus will behave just like other human coronaviruses when it comes to immunity. We'll get six to twelve months of protection, but then reinfection could be possible.

Separately, researchers are looking to measure the actual number of COVID-19 cases in a community by performing antibody tests. These are specific "witnesses" of the infection that prove the immune system has eliminated the coronavirus and is ready to block it again upon a second encounter. But recent studies have shown that antibodies can vanish from the bloodstream as soon as two to three months after the first infection. The immune system would still have specialized T cells to fall back to in case of a second contact with the virus, so the immunity is not lost when the antibodies are gone. But antibody tests would not pick up T cells. That's a separate, more difficult test.

A new study now indicates that antibody tests fail to detect people who had mild coronavirus cases, which could become a real problem in a variety of situations. It's not that people who experience mild cases of COVID-19 do not develop an immune response. But the current tests have been created using samples from symptomatic patients, who were often hospitalized for treatment.

10 new movies and shows on Netflix you have to watch in August

BGR


August is without a doubt the quietest month of new releases for Netflix so far in 2020, but a drop-off seemed inevitable in the midst of a global pandemic. That said, the highlights are still very exciting, and if I had to make a prediction, I would guess that The Legend of Korra (a direct sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender) will be the most-watched show of the month. Expect to see it in that fancy new top 10 list that pops up on Netflix now.

There aren't many returning favorites when it comes to Netflix originals, but the fifth season of Lucifer is making its debut this month. Lucifer aired on Fox for three seasons before getting canceled, but Netflix snatched it up almost immediately, and has since produced two more seasons and plans to make a sixth and final season next year. Season 5 will have 16 episodes, but you'll only be able to watch the first 8 on August 21st.

The CDC is trying to paint a dire picture of what might happen if schools don’t reopen

BGR


Federal public officials like White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci are taking a different tack now in trying to make the case for reopening schools this fall, and it amounts to basically trying to scare people into supporting a move to send kids back to school for in-person learning.

At a congressional hearing, for example, Fauci -- who's also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and who's been pretty negative in his assessment of the US response to the coronavirus pandemic -- said that our "default position" should be to open schools back up for the fall semester. That we should try "as best as we possibly can in the context of the safety of the children and the teachers" to get back to in-person learning, inside classrooms. The danger if we don't, Fauci continued, is all of the "downstream unintended consequences on families" if alternate arrangements have to be made.

Delta won’t let you board the plane if you’re wearing this type of face mask

BGR


Like most airlines across the globe, Delta Airlines during the coronavirus pandemic implemented a rule requiring passengers to wear masks during flights. Delta, however, went one step further and also implemented a rule which demands travelers wear a face covering while checking in and while on jet bridges. Masks are also required for anyone in the boarding gate area and for those with access to Delta Sky Clubs.

Not all face coverings are created equal, however, and Delta recently clarified its mask-wearing protocol to exclude masks with an exhaust valve. What's more, Delta notes that travelers can wear a face shield in addition to a face mask, but not in replacement of. Hardly a surprise, the CDC last month cautioned that face shields are not as effective as face masks when it comes to preventing the coronavirus from spreading rapidly.

A bunch of morons got way to close to the plummeting SpaceX capsule

BGR


It's been decades since a spacecraft took off from US soil and then splashed back down again off the coast. This past weekend, the SpaceX Crew Dragon did just that, nailing its reentry and bringing astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley safely back to Earth. An hours-long process culminated in a splashdown near Pensacola, Florida. It was a big deal for SpaceX and NASA, but the recovery of the crew was hampered by a bunch of morons who don't understand that things coming back from space are dangerous.

As Jalopnik reports, coverage of the recovery efforts showed what looked like a dozen or more boats coming to check out the Crew Dragon capsule as it was being hauled aboard the recovery ship. They were way too close for the comfort of the crews working on getting the astronauts back to dry land as safely as possible.

WHO just reminded us of the worst-case coronavirus scenario

BGR


In some ways, the novel coronavirus pandemic is much worse than it was a few months ago, but it’s also a lot better in others. We’ve been witnessing weeks of record-breaking COVID-19 diagnoses in various parts of the world, and the death toll keeps climbing. Things could get a lot worse before they get any better, mostly because some people have either run out of patience for all the new rules, or they never had any in the first place.

There’s also a lot of relatively good news. Lockdowns work, and so does social distancing when economies reopen. Face masks work, and they should be used for as long as it takes. Frequent hand washing is more important than ever, and it’s the kind of healthy habit that will protect you against all sorts of infectious diseases, not just COVID-19. All those things combined prevented hospitals from collapsing. They gave governments time to come up with the resources needed to fight the pandemic, and procure PPE, test kits, and vital medical equipment. They helped doctors test and develop new therapies and advance vaccine research and new drugs at an unexpected speed.

And they will continue to work for as long as needed for the world to get back to normal. But the World Health Organization (WHO), which saw its fair share of criticism for early missteps in managing the health crisis, just gave us a worst-case coronavirus prediction that’s quite sobering. There may never be a “silver bullet.”

Apple will reportedly launch the iPhone 12 in ‘two stages’

BGR


There is perhaps no story in the world of technology this year that has been revised as often as the release date of the iPhone 12. For a while, it seemed like a new report was popping up every other day claiming that the next iPhone was either on track to launch in September or guaranteed to be delayed. Finally, last week, Apple confirmed that they "project supply to be available a few weeks later" than the typical late September window.

Unsurprisingly, that wasn't the end of the story, as DigiTimes published a report Monday suggesting that the iPhone 12 launch will be split into two stages, with two models being released initially, and the other two coming some a few weeks later. This would not be the first time Apple had spaced out an iPhone launch; in 2018, the iPhone 8 launched in September and the iPhone X launched in November, despite being announced at the same time.

Trump just called White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Deborah Birx ‘pathetic’

President Trump just engaged in a "first" that he hasn't done before during the coronavirus pandemic, as the latest coronavirus update for Monday (from Johns Hopkins University) shows that the US is closing in on 5 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and has surpassed 155,000 reported deaths from the virus. The new move from the president we're referring to? Trump has now attacked White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx for the first time, calling her "pathetic."

Trump's now-familiar pattern of insult-by-tweet came a day after Birx warned in public comments that the coronavirus outbreak is now entering a new chapter in the US, where the virus is now "extraordinarily widespread" and requires a different response compared to the fight against specific pockets and clusters of the virus in communities. Birx raised such an alarm, in fact, during her appearance on CNN Sunday when she suggested there might be a need for people with multiple generations in one household to start wearing face masks inside the home. "What we are seeing today is different from March and April," Birx said. "It is extraordinarily widespread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas."

On Monday, Sony shared a Q&A about the compatibility of PS4 peripherals and accessories on PS5 on the PlayStation Blog, and though most will still work with the next-generation console, there are some exceptions, the most notable of which is the DualShock 4.

Here's the official answer to the question about whether or not the PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 controller will work with PS5 games: "No, we believe that PS5 games should take advantage of the new capabilities and features we’re bringing to the platform, including the features of DualSense wireless controller."

Health officials in recent days have been using their various platforms to beat the drum warning people to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously. On Monday, for example, the World Health Organization cautioned that while scientists have made great strides in identifying drugs and treatments that can help people suffering the most from COVID-19 in addition to multiple vaccines entering promising late-stage trials, there might never be a "silver bullet" that completely eradicates the virus. "There is no silver bullet at the moment," WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press conference, "and there might never be."

Meanwhile, public health experts closer to home are worried about an increase in coronavirus deaths in the coming days and weeks, particularly in five US states.

One country will start its mass coronavirus vaccination campaign in October

BGR


If ever there was a time to oppose vaccines with the same unfounded ferocity as some anti-vaxxers would do, it's when you hear that a country is looking to start mass vaccinations against a novel pathogen before it even supplies any scientific evidence proving its vaccine is safe and effective. That's precisely what's going to happen later this year, as Russia just confirmed its COVID-19 vaccination plans. The country plans to immunize doctors and teachers sooner than any other nation, with a mass vaccination campaign set to start in October.

China said a few months ago that it might start using some of its vaccine candidates before the Phase 3 results are finalized. But China has at least published research covering early clinical trials for several experimental drugs. And those drugs showed the desired immune response, just like similar vaccines that are in the advanced testing stages in America in Europe. Some of the vaccines that are in Phase 3 of testing in the US could receive emergency use authorization later this year after Phase 3 trials are completed, and some categories of at-risk patients could be inoculated before the end of the year. But that will happen only if vaccines are found to be both effective and safe. Russia hasn't published anything to show its vaccine candidate checks either of those two crucial boxes.

The FDA has now banned more than 100 hand sanitizers that are potentially deadly

BGR


The last thing anyone wants to worry about -- especially in the middle of a global pandemic -- is whether or not using a bottle of hand sanitizer might result in a trip to the hospital. It admittedly sounds bizarre, but the FDA in recent weeks has banned dozens of hand sanitizers due to the presence of methanol, otherwise known as wood alcohol.

Methanol is especially toxic when absorbed through the skin and has been found to cause a myriad of serious health issues. Some of the health problems identified by the FDA include permanent blindness, seizures, and vomiting. There have even been some tragic instances where children, who upon ingesting hand sanitizer with methanol, have died.

Definitely get the ‘iPhone of forehead thermometers’ while it’s down to its lowest price in months

BGR


There are a few crucial things you need to protect yourself and your family from the novel coronavirus, and by now everyone should know what they are. First and most importantly, you need to wear a face mask at all times when you're not inside your home. Amazon's best-selling face masks are on sale right now for just 50¢ each, and you can get a 20-pack of popular MagiCare KN95 face masks on sale for $18.99. Second, you need a powerful hand sanitizer. Purell hand sanitizer is actually in stock right now at Amazon, and you can get best-selling SupplyAID 80% alcohol hand sanitizer as well.

In addition to all those important things, there are also a few high-tech things you should definitely have on hand in the age of the coronavirus. The first is a pulse oximeter, which is a fantastic device to have on hand if you're exhibiting some symptoms but you're not certain if you have the flu or COVID-19. This little device measures the oxygen level in your blood which should be somewhere between 95% and 100% when you're healthy. Some coronavirus patients have been found with readings as low as 50%, and anything under 90% is considered by the Mayo Clinic to be unhealthy.

On top of that, you definitely need a good thermometer that's accurate and can deliver fast temperature readings. The iHealth No-Touch Infrared Forehead Thermometer is the best-selling model on Amazon and it's finally back in stock. What's more, there's a discount and a coupon available if you hurry. Regularly checking for a fever is considered by many to be even more important than reading blood oxygen levels, so definitely grab an iHealth thermometer before they sell out again. They also happen to be on sale right now at the lowest price of 2020 thanks to a discount and an extra coupon you can clip on the product page.

iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer, Infrared Adult Thermometer for Adults and Kids,Digital I…: $46.99

Trump administration pushes back on mandatory coronavirus face mask bill

BGR


In the face of a booming nationwide pandemic where some states are reporting record numbers of cases, the Trump administration continues its war on the very safeguards that could save countless lives. As Reuters reports, the White House voiced its displeasure with a bill that would require the use of masks by passengers and workers of transportation systems including airlines, buses, and trains.

According to the report, the bill was deemed "overly restrictive" by the White House Office of Management and Budget. The office insisted that any rules regarding public health "be left to states, local government, transportation systems, and public health leaders." What the White House seems to fail to realize is that just about every entity on that list is already on board with mandatory face masks. Passing a bill would make it a universal requirement across the board, and save lives in the process.

PS5 prices might’ve just leaked from a major French retailer

BGR


How much will the PS5 and Xbox Series X cost? These are the most important details for gamers going into this year’s holiday season. The price will make or break the new consoles, especially during the novel coronavirus pandemic while money is tight for many people. The health crisis may hurt Sony in Microsoft in two different ways. First of all, manufacturing could always be delayed by COVID-19 outbreaks. Secondly, the economic crisis that the pandemic caused will obviously impact PlayStation and Xbox sales to some degree.

The PS5 and Xbox Series X will both offer massive performance gains compared to their predecessors, so it’s only logical to assume they’d cost more than the previous consoles. The new gaming rigs feature custom processors and storage solutions that will unleash faster data speeds and better graphics than ever before. Those parts do not come cheap, and gamers can’t expect the PS5 and Xbox Series to be as affordable as the previous generations are right now. Neither Sony nor Microsoft seems willing to be the first company to announce pricing details, but a new leak from France lists may have just spoiled things for the PS5.

The failure to pass a second stimulus bill proves we have the worst congressional leaders

BGR


If you'd have asked me early on what I thought would be the biggest sticking point between the two parties as Congress tries to pass a second stimulus bill, something the country desperately needs as we enter what health experts say is a new chapter of the coronavirus pandemic, I might have guessed it would be the prospect of new stimulus checks. But no, as things stand now on this first Monday of August -- some six months after the coronavirus outbreak began in the US -- both parties are more or less on board with the idea of sending out a new wave of $1,200 stimulus checks to most Americans. That's a major component of the new stimulus bill that's been introduced in Congress, so what gives? Why has Congress been stuck for more than a week now trying to make progress on a new bill, with little progress to show for it thus far?

The answer: Unemployment aid.

Double discount drops the ‘Apple Watch for Android’ to $125, a new all-time low price

BGR


iPhone users who have their heart set on the deep iOS integrations that only watchOS can afford will find that now is a terrific time to get yourself an Apple Watch. The Apple Watch Series 3 is currently on Amazon starting at its lowest price ever — just $169 — and several Apple Watch Series 5 models are discounted as well. But if you're an Android user instead, or if you're an iPhone owner looking for other good smartwatch options to consider, we've got a terrific new one for you to check out.

Amazfit's new GTS Smartwatch has been referred to as the "Apple Watch for Android" because, well, it looks like an Apple Watch. The rounded rectangle design and the look of the user interface will be instantly recognizable, but it's a great option for people who don't appreciate how clunky and bland most smartwatches are that work with Android phones.

If you're unfamiliar with Amazfit, it's a very well-known company that already has a few popular smartwatch models under its belt. Remember the Amazfit Bip and the $60 Amazfit Bip Lite, which features a battery that lasts longer than a month on a single charge? Well now the company is back with a new smartwatch and it may be the brand's most stylish option yet. Sure, that's due in large part to the fact that it's an Apple Watch copycat, but an Apple Watch that works with Android is something that plenty of people out there have been dreaming of.

The Amazfit GTS sports a gorgeous user interface along with all the features you might want, such as widgets, water-resistance up to 5 ATM, all-day heart rate monitoring, activity tracking, and more. On top of all that, the battery lasts for 14 days on a single charge. Apple's various Apple Watch models can't even make it two days without dying, so that's a big advantage for Amazfit. And on top of all that, it's on sale right now with a double discount that drops it to its lowest price ever. Head over to Amazon and you'll find a $15 discount along with a $10 coupon you can clip. That makes the final price just $124.99 for this awesome smartwatch!

27 new movies and TV shows are coming to Disney+ in August – here’s every new release

BGR


If you had any doubt left in your mind that Disney+ is an incredible value — especially when you bundle Disney+ with Hulu and ESPN+ for just $12.99 per month — August's lineup of new content releases should help fix that. A whopping 27 different movies and TV shows are set to be released on Disney+ this month, including a handful that people have been eagerly awaiting. That's right... Hamilton isn't the only big release on Disney+ this summer!

Sign Up For Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+: $12.99/month

One of the biggest additions this month is Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is set to start streaming on Disney+ beginning August 14th. It's one of the few Marvel movies that hasn't been available on Disney's streaming service, and Avengers fans are excited because it's a fan-favorite. Another big release in August is Howard, coming on August 7th. This documentary focuses on Disney legend Howard Ashman, and it's not to be missed. Here's the full release schedule for August 2020:

Movies

TV Series

If you're not already a subscriber, it's definitely time to take the leap. Disney+ has thousands upon thousands of hours of great content to watch on its own, but smart people out there will opt for the bundle. For just $12.99 per month, you get a bundle with Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ with all the live sports you could possibly want. That's right, $12.99... and it includes multiple screens and 4K streaming. That's less than you'll pay for one month of Netflix's premium service on its own if you want 4K, and with this bundle you get all three services!

This might be the breakthrough coronavirus cure we’ve been waiting for

BGR


If there's one thing we've learned in the seven months the world has been fighting the novel coronavirus pandemic, it's the fact that the novel coronavirus isn't anything like the flu. That's what COVID-19 appeared to be in its early days, a new type of flu with similar symptoms that many hoped could be cure with the same drugs. Doctors quickly discovered the new virus was far more contagious than the flu, and that its attack on the body was a lot more complicated than initially believed. The virus affects a variety of organs, not just the lungs, and it can kill people quickly and viciously. Age, sex, and preexisting conditions are significant risk factors, but COVID-19 has also killed younger people who had no previous medical problems.

Moreover, flu drugs don't work on COVID-19, and that has been an enormous problem. That's what forced governments to opt for lockdowns in the early months of the pandemic and try to limit the spread of the disease, thus giving hospitals time to treat patients. Pharmaceutical companies have now made tremendous progress when it comes to vaccine research, as well as new therapy ideas. We currently have a few COVID-19 cures that work, including remdesivir, dexamethasone, and blood thinners, but we still lack a breakthrough drug that can significantly reduce recovery time and prevent complications. Some researchers think they've already found one such compound that could annihilate the virus and prevent it from killing patients with severe COVID-19 cases, and the medicine is now in advanced testing.

Google just announced the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), and Pixel 5

BGR


In all likelihood, Google had once planned to reveal the Pixel 4a at its Google I/O developer conference on May 12th during the opening keynote. Then a viral pandemic turned the entire world upside-down, and we have been hearing scattered rumors about the latest budget phone from Google ever since.

The floodgates finally opened last week when a page was discovered on Google's online store hinting that the Pixel 4a would finally see the light of day on August 3rd, and sure enough, Google made the much-rumored phone official on Monday, and even confirmed the existence of the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5.

AirPods with wireless charging are the same price as base AirPods in this crazy Amazon sale

BGR


Head over to Amazon today and you'll find so many great deals on wireless headphones. For example, Bose 700 wireless noise cancelling headphones that retail for $400 can be bought for as little as $299 today. That's the lowest price of all time for what many reviewers say represent the single best pair of over-ear ANC headphones ever crafted. Those looking to spend far less money but still get high-quality headphones will find a tremendous deal on Cowin E7 wireless noise cancelling headphones. They retail for $60 and have a staggering 23,000 5-star reviews at Amazon, and a coupon you can clip today cuts them to just $47.99.

Those are all fantastic deals, but there's another sale you'll want to check out before you commit. And this particular sale happens to be on a version of the best-selling wireless headphones of all time.

We're of course talking about Apple AirPods, which start at $159 for the entry-level model if you buy a pair right now from Apple. You can find better prices from most of Apple's big retail partners like Best Buy and Walmart, but you won't find deals that are anywhere close to being as good as the one available right now at Amazon.

AirPods Pro have a $15 discount today, which drops them to the same price we saw last year on Black Friday. That's a fine deal. You can also get Apple's $159 AirPods 2 for $139 today... but you shouldn't. Why not, you ask? Because AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case that normally sell for $199 have a massive $59 discount today. That means you can get a pair for just $0.98 more than the entry-level model, even while the entry-level model is $20 off!

Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $139.98

Today's discount on AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case over at Amazon is completely unheard of. These $200 true wireless earphones go on sale fairly often at Amazon, but usually with a $30 discount. If you're lucky, you might catch them at $159, which is the sale price we saw last year during Amazon's big Black Friday and Cyber Week blowout sales.

A price of $139.98 is completely unprecedented for this best-selling model, and there's no chance this deal is going to stick around for very long. In fact, there's a good chance that today is your first and last opportunity to score a pair at this crazy price.

Xbox Series X leak says preorders are coming sooner than you think

BGR


There are still a number of unsolved mysteries surrounding the next-generation game consoles, from the price to the release date to the interface to the launch lineup. We have no idea when Sony and Microsoft plan to share any of this information, but we suspect it won't be too much longer, because preorders are right around the corner.

Earlier this year, Australian carrier and ISP Telstra gave customers the ability to sign up to receive information about the Xbox Series X when it became available. On Monday, several Telstra customers reported that they received a text from the carrier: "Pre-order for the Xbox Series X with Xbox All Access will open soon. This offer is exclusive to Telstra customers - so you need a postpaid mobile, mobile broadband, or home internet service with us."

These 62¢ face masks supposedly kill germs on contact, and they’re even reusable

BGR


Early coronavirus hot spots in the United States like New York and New Jersey are doing a tremendous job of keeping new infection numbers down. But the bad news is that things are actually still getting much worse right now in several states like Florida, Arizona, California, Texas, and elsewhere. Thanks to an inconceivable lack of leadership, people saw the reopening of nonessential businesses back in June as a sign that they could just go back to living a carefree life. As COVID-19 infection rates skyrocket across the US, we now know that won't be the case for a very long time.

We all need to adjust and remain vigilant by continuing to be as safe as possible if we want to slow the spread of this potentially deadly virus. At this point, most doctors think we'll have to continue to wear face masks whenever we leave our homes for at least another year. That might sound extreme, but we've already seen what happens when careless people stop wearing masks and practicing social distancing. There's obviously no way for you to control what most other people do, but you can do your part to keep yourself and your family safe by doing three things in particular. First, practice social distancing. Second, wash your hands with strong hand sanitizer (Purell is in stock right now at Amazon!) anytime you touch an object or surface in a public space. And third, wear a face mask anytime you leave your home.

The hottest option right now for coronavirus face masks that ship promptly is the 50-pack of Jointown 3-layer face masks. They've been Amazon's best-selling face masks for months, and our readers have picked up more than 50,000 boxes of them. They're on sale right now for just 54¢ per mask thanks to a coupon you can clip, so it's the perfect time to load up.

Jointown Face Mask, Pack of 50 (5081): $26.95 ($0.54 / mask)

MagiCare KN95 face masks are also very popular with our readers. While the 3-layer masks above are good for everyday use, it's also smart to have KN95 masks on hand for higher-risk situations. If you're doing something like riding public transportation somewhere, flying on an airplane, or visiting a doctor's office, you should definitely use masks like these.

Magicare 4-Ply Mouth Noise Protection Filtration>95%, Compatible with Anti-Fog, Dust-Proof, Adj…: $18.95 ($0.95 / mask)

In addition to those great options though, there's another type of mask you should definitely consider. Both of the masks listed above are disposable, so you definitely need to discard them after one or two uses. But there's another type of popular face mask on Amazon that's meant to be washable and reusable for a period of time, and it even has a special added layer of safety that you won't find on traditional face masks.

Reusable Cotton Face Mask (Pack of 50): $30.99 ($0.62 / mask)

WD37U Reusable Cotton Face Masks look like many other masks you see on Amazon or while you're out and about. They're actually made of jersey material, so they sort of look like some homemade face masks you've seen around. These are special masks though, and they differentiate themselves from similar offerings in a few important ways.

First of all, they're 3-layer masks as opposed to the 1-layer face masks that many people make themselves. This means you have much better protection while you're wearing one, and you're less likely to spread the novel coronavirus if you're infected. But what's really cool about these face masks is the fact that the material has a special antimicrobial coating that kills germs that get stuck on the mask. What's more, these masks are reusable and the coating is said to last for up to 10 washes.

Popular WD37U Reusable Cotton Face Masks are sold in packs of 50 so you'll get tons of use out of them if you wash each one a few times and reuse it. They're also available at a new lower price right now at Amazon, so you'll only pay 62¢ per mask for either black or white masks!

Netflix is releasing 60 new original movies and shows in August – here’s every single one

BGR


August 2020 only just began, but Netflix has already added a whopping 36 new titles to its massive streaming content catalog. That's no typo... thirty-six new releases! The bulk of that came this past Saturday when Netflix dumped a slew of new movies into its US catalog. Highlights include Death at a Funeral, Being John Malkovich, Jurassic Park, Mr. Deeds, The NeverEnding Story, and a very intriguing new docuseries called Connected, featuring science journalist Latif Nasser. That last title is one of a whopping 60 different original movies and series Netflix will be debuting over the course of the month in August, and we're going to take a look at the complete August 2020 releases list right here.

This is going to be a very busy month at Netflix, with well over 100 new movies, series, and specials on the docket. Check out the entire schedule of releases right here in our earlier coverage. Of course, tons of Netflix subscribers like to focus mainly on the new original movies and shows Netflix has planned each month. They won't be disappointed in August because Netflix has some big releases in store.

The highest-profile new Netflix original coming in August 2020 is definitely Project Power on August 14th. It's a high-octane thriller starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt about a new drug that gives people temporary superpowers. It sounds pretty silly — and it may very well be — but it's also shaping up to be the biggest release of August. The only other title that comes close is Lucifer season 5, which is set to hit Netflix on August 21st.

Netflix's full August 2020 release schedule can be found below, and we've included links where available so you can go read about them and watch the trailers.

Experts say more grocery hoarding is coming – here’s what you should stock up on while you can

BGR


As new coronavirus cases continue to surge throughout most of the United States, experts believe we're on the verge of a huge second rush of grocery hoarding. Everyone out there can surely recall what things were like back in March and April of this year when it was practically impossible to find essentials like bleach, household cleaners, and of course toilet paper. Inventory has improved dramatically since then all around the country, but something else has been happening in recent months: new coronavirus cases have skyrocketed to astronomical heights. At this point, no one can even guess when things might start to calm down.

Smart people like our readers likely don't even need to read the CDC's recommendations to know that they need to wear face masks whenever they go outside. They also know they need to use hand sanitizer like Purell whenever they touch a surface or object in public or anything foreign that comes into the home, such as packages and groceries. They know they need to sanitize things in their homes and offices with disinfectant wipes all the time (Lysol Wipes and Purell wipes are in stock right now at Amazon at inflated prices if you're running low and in dire need). Not everyone is as smart or as cautious though, and there will likely be supply shortages in the coming weeks and months as case numbers continue to soar.

No one wants to deal with another rush of grocery hoarding, but you may be running out of time to get out ahead of it. That's why you should definitely stock up now, and here you'll find five key things you'd be wise to focus 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. Right now they're on sale for just $0.54 per mask, so you should definitely stock up whether or not you think a grocery rush is coming.

Jointown Face Mask, Pack of 50 (5081): $26.95 ($0.54 / 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 lowest price we've ever seen. Head over to eBay and you'll easily pay $10 or $12 apiece for KN95 masks!

Magicare 4-Ply Mouth Noise Protection Filtration>95%, Compatible with Anti-Fog, Dust-Proof, Adj…: $18.95 ($0.95 / mask)

If you want the best of the best, there have been some rare opportunities lately to load up on things like 3M KN95 masks, 3M N100 face masks, 3M respirators with NIOSH-approved particulate filters, and Honeywell face masks that are typically reserved for hospitals and government agencies only. Note that these will likely be sold out by the time you get to them, but bookmark those pages and check back often because they appear back in stock from time to time.

5pcs Particulate 95% Protection GB2626-2006 PM2.5 type 9551 filter in US stock (NOT In the orig…: $19.99 ($4.00 / mask)

3M 8233PC1-B Lead Paint Removal Respirator - Quantity 10: $199.99 ($19.99 / mask)

3M Reusable Face Mask Respirators: $19.99+

NIOSH-approved P95 and P100 Particulate Filters: $9.99+

Honeywell Retail Nuisance Disposable Dust Mask, 5-Pack (RWS-54000), White: $8.42 ($1.68 / Mask)

Lastly, you might also be able to get reader-favorite SupplyAID KN95 face masks if you hurry, and they're down to $3.52 each when you buy a 5-pack.

SupplyAID RRS-KN95-5PK KN95 Mask, Protection Against PM2.5 Dust. Pollen and Haze-Proof, 5 Pack: $17.60 ($3.52 / mask)

Hand sanitizer

The big news here is that Purell hand sanitizer is FINALLY back in stock on Amazon and there are FINALLY options that are available to everyone, not just hospitals. Some prices are inflated (like Purell sanitizing wipes, which you should only order if you have a very urgent need) but prices have actually come down a bit and are almost reasonable if you buy Purell bottles in bulk or Purell refills to fill up the pump and squeeze bottles you already have.

Table Top Stand with Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel, includes (2x) 1000mL Refills: $79.95 for stand and 2 liters

PURELL Quick Tabletop Stand Kit, Push-Style Corrugated Tabletop Stand and 2 PURELL NXT Hand San…: $79.95 for stand and 2 liters

GOJO 1000 ml Refill PURELL NXT Hand Sanitizer: $38.47 for 1 33.8oz refill

Instant Hand Sanitizer FST Military Bottle, 3 oz. Bottle, Lemon Scent, Sold as 1 Carton, 24 Eac…: $96.50 for 24 bottles

MedEx Hand Sanitizer Gel with the same formulation as Purell 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 more than strong enough to kill coronavirus. It's also a well-known brand that's sold in stores like CVS, Costco, Whole Foods, and 7-Eleven.

Medex Hand Sanitizer 70%+ Alcohol, Kills 99.99%: $39.99 for 12 bottles

Finally, people in search of a good option from a top brand will find Suave Hand Sanitizer Spray in stock at Amazon.

Suave Hand Sanitizer Alcohol Based Kills 99.9% of Germs 10 oz,Pack of 6: $26.94 for 6 bottles

Toilet paper

No one wants to relive what was happening across the country back in March and April. That said, some top TP brands are still somewhat difficult to come by online and in local stores. Do yourself a favor: Visit Amazon's toilet paper page and stock up — Charmin, Cottonelle, and Quilted Northen are all in stock today, so you don't have to settle for Amazon brand or, heaven forbid, Scott.

Toilet Paper On Amazon: $9.99+

Paper towels

Paper towel hoarding was nowhere near as bad as the run on toilet paper, but good brands are still difficult to find in some regions. This is something that never expires 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+

Household cleaners

It makes sense that certain things like Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Clorox bleach cleaners would be in high demand since they kill germs and viruses, including human coronaviruses. If you recall back to March and April though, most cleaners from top brands were sold out in stores. Stock up now on all the household cleaners you need because there's no telling when they might start flying off the shelves again.

Household Cleaners On Amazon: $3.29+

This might be our first look at the Pixel 5

BGR


Google is widely expected to unveil the Pixel 4a on Monday, a mid-range Android phone that’s launching nearly three months too late. The device will reportedly cost $349 in the US, but the Pixel 4a will have some formidable competition. For just $50 more, you can buy an iPhone fast like the iPhone 11, in a compact body. That’s the iPhone SE, and that’s not the only threat for the Pixel 4a. The recently launched OnePlus Nord is even cheaper than the iPhone SE in Europe but offers a much better overall performance than the Pixel 4a. The Nord is going to be one of the best alternatives to the Pixel 5, a phone that won’t get flagships specs this year.

The Pixel 5 did make plenty of appearances recently, having been spotted in leaked Google code a couple of times. Those leaks revealed that Google would not have an XL version of the handset this year, but said a Pixel 4a 5G model is in the works as well. While we have no idea when the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G will be unveiled, a leaker offered us our first glimpse at the two handsets.

8 Ways to Get the Most out of Your TV Binge-Watching Experience

BGR

Article written by Scott Muska

Sometimes after a long day or week, nothing sounds more exciting than an idle day or relaxing night spent binge-watching television and movies—whether you’re alone or with company. 

And it’s no secret that binge-watching has definitely been on the rise over the past few months, as people have been spending more time at home (and on the couch) than usual, with fewer sports and live events to watch.

Even if you’re just hanging out and have fully committed to hours in front of the tube, you still want to make it a day or night worth remembering—and you still want to get the most out of your time spent streaming.

Here are a few ways to do just that.

Pick your spot and get comfortable. 

A big part of a successful binge-watch is ensuring you’re in the right environment.

Before you take to your couch or favorite seat and commit to nest for hours, make sure you have a proper setup. You’ll want to have some blankets to cover up with and some pillows to clutch during the more intense or belly laugh-inducing moments of the show or movie you’re watching. You may even want to make sure you’re getting your lighting just right, to set an ambiance and mood and prevent unwanted screen glare.

Have your food and beverages ready, with reinforcements within reach.

Nobody likes the person who is constantly pausing what’s on to go and get another snack or drink. So make sure you have enough of your favorites on-hand to make it through a few episodes, and go from there. You can always get up for a bathroom break and ever-important refill between episodes—because, after all, it’s good to get up and stretch your legs every once in a while.

Upgrade your TV to get the best possible picture.

What’s a good binge without a great picture? 

The more time you spend in front of your TV, the more sense it makes to make sure that TV is delivering the best possible viewing experience—and OLED TVs really can’t be beat. They use millions of self-lit pixels that emit their own light and turn completely off to create perfect black, intense color, and infinite contrast.

And one of the best OLED TVs is the LG GX 77 inch Class with Gallery Design 4K Smart OLED TV. It makes the most of all its OLED pixels, and at 77 inches, it’s at a size that helps make your viewing experiences more immersive than what you’ve previously gotten with smaller screens.

So no matter what you’re watching, it will be even more captivating than ever before.

Have a plan, unless your plan is to not have a plan.

We’ve all found ourselves in a scenario where we sit down and have absolutely no idea what to watch. It’s harrowing, to be honest. But it can be avoided. If you and whoever you’re planning to watch with agree on a series or film before you come to the couch, you’ll avoid that sometimes annoying phase of flipping through channels or offerings from a streaming service. It becomes all too easy to get caught up in all the choices at your fingertips, rendering you indecisive. Before you know it, the amount of time it’d take to watch an episode of something has passed while you try to figure out what you even want to watch.

However, surfing your streaming services and channels can be fun, too, because it’s always great to find something new. At the end of the day (or night), you’re in control of your binge-watching session, and that can be an empowering thing.

Be sure to have your second screen ready.

It’s important to pay ample attention to what you’re watching—because just like the person who’s constantly standing up to hit the kitchen, nobody likes the person who’s constantly hitting pause to ask what they missed because they had their nose in their phone or tablet.

But you may want to text some friends about what you’re watching, or share your experiences and thoughts on social media. Sometimes it can really add to the experience. 

And, additionally, you’ll want to have a device on-hand in case the snacks and drinks run out and it’s time for you to order reinforcements from takeout or delivery.

If you’re in it together, be in it together.

You might get an hour or two of pleasure and maybe even a little bit of a thrill from watching a few episodes of something you’re supposed to be watching with a partner or friend. 

But don’t do it. It’s not worth the consequences. And if you think you can rewatch the episodes without them noticing that you’ve already seen them, don’t fool yourself. They’ll know. They always know.

The best binge-watching experiences come when you’re not binging behind a loved one’s back. 

Get yourself a solid connection. 

Buffering is the enemy of any successful and enjoyable binge-watching adventure. Make sure your wireless connection has the proper bandwidth to accommodate your epic streaming session. 

Don’t be afraid to commit.

The prompts from streaming services and cable providers that ask if you’re still watching can and should be viewed as something of a challenge. Play on. And hey, if you fall asleep mid-binge, you can always retrace your steps the next day to the point where you dozed off.

Google Chrome will finally tell you how ads are tracking you

BGR


Google, the company that’s making money from ads tailored to your preferences, will finally be more transparent about how ads work. Google, the company that has been involved in various privacy scandals that revealed the novel ways it was tracking your online activity or your location to improve its ads, will tell you exactly how ad tech works. And it’s all happening in Google Chrome, the world’s most popular web browser. It’s not exactly coming from the goodness of its heart. Google still wants to make money off of your anonymized data, and I often explained that the data-for-free-apps trade-off does make plenty of sense for several of Google’s class-leading apps. But competing browsers that offer the user analytics about online ads and trackers, as well as ad blockers that threaten Google’s bottom line, forced Google to rethink its ad-related policies. In recent years, Google announced and implemented several measures meant to allow it to police the bad ads that ruin the internet-browsing experience, and the latest move further complements those efforts.

However, the Ads Transparency Spotlight (ATS) comes as a Chrome add-on that you’d have to install from the Chrome Web Store rather than becoming a built-in feature of the browser.

An anti-mask cult in Illinois might spread coronavirus across the country

BGR


The novel coronavirus is ravaging the US, as several states are dealing with record outbreaks that seem to have no end in sight. More than 4.7 million Americans have been infected so far, and the death toll will likely pass 157,000 this weekend. The summer heat didn't do anything to stop the virus from spreading, and the pathogen is highly infectious. The lack of effective medicines that might prevent COVID-19, potential complications, and deaths makes it even more difficult to contain transmission. That's especially because some people have given up on respecting the few guidelines that can help them reduce the risk of spread. Social distancing, face masks, frequent handwashing, and regular cleaning of commonly used products and surfaces can dramatically reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread. But face mask protestors have come up with all sorts of stupid reasons to resist wearing them just as more scientific evidence has demonstrated their effectiveness.

Some anti-maskers won't realize the errors of their ways until they're infected themselves, as was the case with a coronavirus denier who spent 100 days on machines before receiving a double lung transplant that saved his life. Another denier claimed the virus was a liberal hoax until he spread COVID-19 to his entire family, killing at least one of his relatives. The latest example comes from a cult that's holding meetings in complete disregard of local rules. There's no social distancing at these events, and the people in attendance don't wear masks. As if that wasn't bad enough, the group now plans to begin traveling across the country without taking any measures to protect themselves or the communities they pass through.

A parasite is turning cicadas into mind-controlled ‘sex zombies’

BGR


Whether or not you find their shrill buzzing to be annoying or a pleasant reminder that summer is officially here, cicadas are seasonal visitors that many people are familiar with. What you might not know, however, is that a bizarre mind-controlling fungus is turning some of the insects into what can only be described as "sex zombies."

In a new paper published in PLOS Pathogens, researchers describe the discovery of a fungal parasite that not only takes control of the body and mind of a cicada but actively uses its power to lure other cicadas in with the promise of mating.

Kids might have up to 100x more coronavirus in their bodies than adults

BGR


The novel coronavirus pandemic ruined the school experience for both children and their parents. All age groups of students have had to study remotely via video conferencing apps in the past few months, as authorities grappled with the health crisis. The closing of schools may have prevented additional cases of COVID-19, as families and teachers isolated themselves during mandatory or voluntary lockdowns. The upcoming school year might be similarly compromised, at least part of it, and at least in certain regions, given the massive surge in cases in the US. There’s an ongoing debate about opening school safely, considering the risk of infection.

Children can be infected with the novel coronavirus. While it’s unclear how contagious they might be, there’s still a risk of them passing the disease to their educators and family members. A new study indicates that infected children can carry as much coronavirus load in their noses and throats as adults. The same research also delivers a more worrying conclusion about kindergarteners, as the scientists found that children younger than five may host up to 100 times as much virus in the upper respiratory tract as adults. The research doesn’t prove that the children are infectious, despite the virus replicating with such ease in their noses and throats.

Everything coming and going on Netflix for the week of August 2nd

BGR


Fair warning: August is going to be one of the stranger months Netflix has seen in recent years. Although Netflix made it clear that it banked tons of content for 2020, regardless of how the pandemic affected filming and post-production, the name brand shows and the movies with A-list talent appear to have dried up this month. That's not to say that there aren't some potential gems on the list below, I just don't know what they are.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll experience the next time you’re at the dentist

BGR


The question of whether to reopen schools this fall, if such a thing can even be done safely at all, is nowhere close to being settled right now, with experts continuing to offer conflicting guidance around the country as the US remains in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, there's something deeper that's inherent in these contentious debates about the fate of the school year, and it's much larger than the idea of classrooms and bringing kids back into educational institutions. What we're really grappling with here is the much more fundamental challenge of how to increasingly go about our lives with the coronavirus still raging around us -- still infecting new people, still causing people to be hospitalized, and, sadly, still killing so many Americans. Because in the absence of a vaccine, which experts like White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci assure us is still months away at the earliest, each of us has to figure out what degree of risk in our personal lives we're willing to tolerate, whether you're ok with eating at restaurants, shopping inside a grocery store, getting on a plane, sending your kid back to school ... or, in my case, visiting my dentist's office, which I did for the first time last week since the pandemic began.

Some of the most-watched TV shows right now are on a streamer that just launched

BGR


The first thing I did when NBC's new streaming service Peacock went live on July 15 -- and quickly availed itself as a more than serviceable complement to a Netflix subscription -- was to dive straight into The Capture, a thriller imported from the UK that I've already raved is a must-watch. Lead actress Holliday Grainger is fantastic as an ambitious detective inspector who realizes with classic British stiff-upper-lip professionalism how in over her head she is when she has to go up against the shadowy, black arts world of techno-centric espionage. I was thoroughly satisfied as this series about fake news and the creeping authoritarianism of our tech overlords and spy agencies drew to a close, and I can't wait for the show (one of a handful of Peacock originals) to return.

Meantime, plenty of you out there apparently feel something similar. Following Peacock's July 15 debut, with more than 20,000 hours of movies and shows to watch, the service's app quickly garnered 10 million downloads, according to App Annie. Moreover, some of the most-watched TV shows right now across all major services are actually Peacock titles.

The first hero on Marvel’s new Avengers team might’ve just been revealed

BGR


There may be clever ways to bring back the Avengers who died in Avengers: Endgame, but there's no telling whether Marvel will go down that road. What seems to be clear is that Marvel is looking for new teams of heroes that will power future crossover films. Of course, the Avengers haven't been abandoned, even though there's no Avengers 5 in MCU Phase 4. Marvel is just rebuilding the team, and the next set of films and TV shows will be used to set up the new Avengers crews.

It's not just the Avengers that will get new team members, though, as Marvel may soon introduce the Young Avengers. It's unclear whether it'll be a movie or a TV series, but we may already have our first Young Avenger.

Apple Watch Series 6 might have a vital feature for the coronavirus era

BGR


It's been close to five months since the US government declared a national emergency due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but our understanding of the virus is still woefully limited.

Some people who catch the virus become very ill and require urgent care, but others will never know they're infected unless they get tested. The symptoms are so varied and arbitrary, it can difficult to determine whether or not you have COVID-19 without getting a test. Therefore, it's no surprise that pulse oximeters started flying off store shelves in the early days of the pandemic, because low blood oxygen levels can be a sign of the disease.

A pulse oximeter is an electronic device that clips to your finger and measures both your heart rate and the oxygen saturation in your red blood cells. As Yale Medicine explains, oxygen levels between 95-97% are considered normal by the American Lung Association, but any reading below that range would warrant calling a doctor. At the very least, it's nice to have one around for peace of mind, and the next Apple Watch might have one built in.

Did we finally find out when Sony’s PS5 price and release date will be revealed?

BGR


Sony and Microsoft are in the final months of PS5 and Xbox Series X marketing ahead of the holiday 2020 launch window for the next-gen consoles. Each company handled its console reveal differently against the backdrop of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The health crisis forced both Sony and Microsoft to cancel in-person events for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and each company resorted to online events or simple press releases to announce new details about their upcoming consoles. We already know what each of the consoles will look like and what specs to expect from them. But Sony and Microsoft did not reveal all of their PS5 and Series X secrets.

We have not yet seen the new user interfaces and new software features coming to the two consoles. But what gamers really want to know is when the consoles will be released, how much will they cost, and when will online preorders open. Now, a new leak suggests Sony might soon unveil the PS5 availability details and tell us when preorders kick-off.

WHO just gave us the worst possible coronavirus prediction

BGR


The novel coronavirus is here to stay, even once vaccines are widely available. It's still too early to tell how long COVID-19 immunity lasts, but infectious disease experts think the new virus will behave just like other human coronaviruses. That means reinfection could be possible as soon as six to twelve months after the first bout, and vaccine protection will be limited without regular booster shots. Even if vaccines are approved this fall or winter, it will be months until public immunization campaigns can start in earnest. The initial vaccine supply will not meet demand, as the entire world might need 15 billion doses to inoculate everyone — and some people will always resist vaccines, while others are in remote regions that may not be accessible. Therefore, it will be years before a large percentage of the world's population is vaccinated against COVID-19, and that's assuming the current candidates are effective. Other drugs are also in human trials and they could provide new effective therapies to prevent COVID-19 complications or death.

With all that in mind, it seems unlikely for the novel coronavirus to disappear anytime soon and the world will have to learn to live with it, just like it did with other infectious diseases. The World Health Organization (WHO) made this prediction several months ago, as researchers learned more details about the new illness. But now, the WHO just gave the world the worst possible forecast about the novel coronavirus.

This is the new Netflix series I’m most excited about right now

BGR


The coronavirus pandemic notwithstanding, 2020 has continued to be an insanely busy year for Netflix, with the streamer keeping up its usual release cadence that involves launching several dozen new Netflix series and movies from one month to the next. Indeed, the month of August alone will see the streamer give subscribers 60 new original shows and movies to enjoy -- and one of those has already shot to the top of my must-watch list for next month.

Teenage Bounty Hunters is about two fraternal twin sisters learning to navigate the normal drama of high school, relationships, and growing up -- while also working as ass-kicking bounty hunters. Netflix has released the trailer, which you can check out below, ahead of the August 14 premiere of the series, which is giving off strong Veronica Mars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibes.

Here’s how Dr. Fauci responds to moronic conspiracy theories

BGR


Whether the subject is anything from face masks to effective coronavirus treatments to the odd coronavirus conspiracy theory, White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has been sounding pretty repetitive in interviews he's given for the last few months now.

That's not by any means a criticism of the doctor, who also serves as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and whose presence and distinctive Brooklyn accent have become ubiquitous to Americans desperate for authoritative information and sources about the coronavirus pandemic that's upended our lives. His press rounds lately, though, seem to consist of ... well, pretty much the same thing over and over. He's asked repeatedly about drugs whose efficacy has been debunked. About face masks. About when our lives can get back to normal. About vaccines.

This massive cosmic butterfly is pure galactic eye candy

BGR


Celestial objects come in all shapes and sizes, and most are a real treat to look at. Still, some are more breathtaking than others, and the massive blob of gas known to astronomers at NGC 2899 is in a class of its very own. The massive bubble is in the shape of a butterfly with its wings spread, and scientists as the European Southern Observatory just snapped the most detailed image of it to date.

The European Southern Observatory (ESO for short) says the object is somewhere between 3,000 and 6,500 light-years from Earth. A pair of stars sits near its center, and as one of them died it blasted surrounding gasses into space. The other star acted upon the gas as it was pushed away, and the result is a nearly symmetrical shape.

Merck to start ‘pivotal’ study of controversial remdesivir alternative in September

BGR


As promising as vaccines may seem right now, they can't help patients who are already infected with the novel coronavirus. The world still lacks a COVID-19 cure that can speed up recovery, prevent complications, and reduce the risk of death. Remdesivir helps in some cases, but it’s expensive, scarce, and difficult to make. Dexamethasone is cheap, but isn't enough to save every patient's life either. Blood thinners can reduce the risk of coagulation and eliminate some complications, but they’re not a COVID-19 cure by themselves.

Several other promising antibody therapies are in the works, and some of them are already being studied in human trials. Merck has an antiviral drug in testing, and the company is expected to start “large pivotal” studies in September for an oral medicine to rival remdesivir. However, there’s some controversy around this potential coronavirus treatment.

Dr. Fauci fires back amid allegations he’s mishandled the response to the coronavirus

BGR


For reasons that still don't make much sense, the manner in which people view the coronavirus has become something of a heated and divisive political issue. So while it would clearly be beneficial for people in the U.S. to come together and get on the same page when it comes to combatting the coronavirus, that's not how things have played out over the past few months.

Part of the problem is that many of our country's leaders can't even get on the same page when it comes to the coronavirus. Case in point: President Trump and Dr. Anthony Fauci have seemingly been at odds for weeks on end in regards to the country's coronavirus response. The tension between the two reached a new level of absurdity recently when Trump lamented the fact that Fauci has a higher approval rating than he does. Even before that, Trump would on occasion espouse COVID-19 theories and dispense advice that was counter to what Fauci was saying.

Crew Dragon may have to wait to return to Earth thanks to Mother Nature

BGR


NASA's Commercial Crew program suffered many delays on its road to the eventual crewed launch of SpaceX's Crew Dragon (and we're still waiting on Boeing to hold up its end of the deal, too), so it's only fitting that the spacecraft's first return to Earth would also be impacted by a delay of some sort. The planned departure of the Crew Dragon Demo-2 mission on Saturday and return to Earth on Sunday is now in the hands of Mother Nature.

NASA has been keeping a close eye on the recently-named Tropical Storm Isaias, which, based on its current trajectory, would bring it uncomfortably close to several of the planned landing zones for the Crew Dragon on Sunday.

‘Halo Infinite’ multiplayer will be free to play, developer confirms

BGR


UPDATE: Moments before this post was scheduled to go up, 343 Industries confirmed that Halo Infinite's multiplayer will indeed be free-to-play, just as the leak we describe below suggested:

https://twitter.com/Halo/status/1289298976550731776

You can read on for the original story of the leak that prompted the tweet above.


Microsoft's Xbox Games Showcase on July 23rd gave us our first glimpse of what some of the most anticipated next-gen games look like running on the Xbox Series X, including Halo Infinite. The "spiritual reboot" of the Halo franchise was announced over two years ago, but the showcase was the first time we've ever seen the game in action. Based on the demo, the Halo Infinite campaign will be much more open-ended than in previous entries.

Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries wasn't ready to talk about or show anything from the game's multiplayer, but an Irish toy store may have spoiled a noteworthy detail about the online modes. According to a listing from Smyths Toys Superstores that has since been deleted, Halo Infinite's multiplayer will be free to play.

Internal CDC document reveals the 10 biggest coronavirus hotspots in the country

BGR


An internal CDC memo obtained by Yahoo News reveals that nine of the ten biggest coronavirus hotspots in the United States are in two states: Florida and Texas. This, of course, shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given that the number of new coronavirus cases in those two states started to skyrocket in early June. In fact, the situation in some Texas counties is so dire that some hospitals have been forced to turn away coronavirus patients because ICUs are already at full capacity.

The CDC document was circulated internally earlier in the week and highlights which U.S. counties should be categorized as "areas of concern" due to an ongoing increase in coronavirus cases. Five of the ten biggest COVID-19 hotspots can be found in Florida, with the situation in Miami-Dade County being especially worrisome. The document notes that Miami-Dade County has seen more than 40,000 new coronavirus cases over the last two weeks alone.

Astronomers just spotted ancient stars lurking at the edges of our galaxy

BGR


The Milky Way galaxy is pretty chill. Compared to some of the galaxies that astronomers have observed, our home galaxy is relatively "calm," for lack of a better term. It's not slamming into another galaxy or chewing through blobs of dust and gas. It's just kind of hanging out and doing its thing... or at least that's the case right now. In the past, however, researchers now have evidence that the Milky Way was a bit of a bully.

As a new study in Nature explains, a whole bunch of ancient stars was just discovered hanging out at the fringe of our galaxy, and scientists believe it's the leftover remains of a collection of stars that was shredded by the Milky Way a long, long time ago.

Coronavirus denier spent 100 days on life support before a risky procedure saved him

BGR


COVID-19 deniers are among the worst and most unexpected side-effects of the novel coronavirus pandemic. People who don’t believe the virus is real refuse to take steps to protect themselves against infection, putting their lives and the lives of others at risk. One denier from Texas spread the illness to his entire family recently, costing at least one relative her life.

It’s often too late that they realize the illness is real and can lead to death. And it’s usually only after contracting the virus themselves. One such man spent 100 days on ventilation machines before getting a life-saving double lung transplant, the kind of radical treatment that’s not available to all severe COVID-19 patients. Before the whole ordeal, he thought the virus was a hoax and refused to wear a mask. Now he wants the world to know his story.

The US government just spent $2.1 billion on its biggest coronavirus vaccine contract yet

BGR


In all likelihood, there will be more than one vaccine for the novel coronavirus available within the next few months, and the United States is casting a wide net to ensure that it has plenty of doses, regardless of which company is first to market. On Friday, Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline announced that the US government would invest up to $2.1 billion for the development and delivery of 100 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine.

The two pharmaceutical companies say that more than half of the $2.1 billion will support the development of the vaccine, including clinical trials, and the remainder of the investment will go to the manufacturing and delivery of the initial 100 million doses. As part of the deal, the US government also has the option to order an additional 500 million doses in the long term as the country attempts to innoculate every citizen it possibly can.

Waiting on a new stimulus check? Here’s when it might arrive

BGR


Let's get this out of the way right from the start -- if you're one of the millions of Americans in dire financial straights right now because of the coronavirus pandemic and desperately waiting on a new stimulus check from the federal government, we've got bad news. Despite the fact that new jobless claims have topped 1 million for 19 weeks now, congressional leaders and the White House are not anywhere close to having a new stimulus bill poised for passage and ready for President Trump to sign into law. "I'm not very optimistic that we will have any kind of an agreement on a comprehensive bill in the near future," White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Thursday.

That's partly because lawmakers are trying to do a lot with this new bill, which could include everything from funding for new stimulus checks to incentives for businesses to bring back and to hire workers. The more elements that are included, the more there is to argue over, which doesn't put money into the pockets of ordinary Americans any faster. Be that as it may, however, we can still make a few guesses based on how things are going now, and how much time is left in the process, to figure out when the next round of stimulus checks might be sent out -- and how soon you'll actually have that money in your hands.

Behold the ‘Deadpool’ assassin fly

BGR


Scientists that seek to identify and catalog new species of plants or animals already have a tough task ahead of them. Comparing specimens to known species to ensure a newly-discovered creature is actually new is taxing work, and once they confirm the existence of a new species they have to come up with a name.

For the researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) in Australia, inventing new names inevitably led them to pop culture references. One newly-identified species of fly has been given a moniker that is quite fitting based on its color scheme. Its scientific name is Humoralethalis sergius, but you can just call it the Deadpool fly. They're not quite as terrifying as murder hornets, but they're definitely still well-suited for 2020.

Today alone, they dug up 3M KN95 face masks that are somehow available right now at Amazon, actual 3M N100 face masks that filter 99.97% of airborne particles instead of 95% for N95 and KN95 masks, best-selling blue 3-ply coronavirus face masks for a new all-time low price of $0.44 each, popular MagiCare KN95 masks for $1.40 each instead of $3.50, Purell hand sanitizer refills that are in stock and ready to ship, best-selling Suave hand sanitizer with better prices, cases of 24 military-spec bottles of Purell, and even an insanely rare opportunity to pick up Lysol Disinfecting Wipes at a better price than we've seen for the past few weeks.

You won’t believe how good these Roku TV and Fire TV deals are on Amazon

BGR


Is a "smart TV" actually smart if it's not powered by either Roku, Fire TV, or Apple software? If you ask us, the answer is no. Televisions from Samsung, Sony, LG, and others run popular apps and they're fine if all you want to do is stream Netflix and Hulu. 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.

There is one very important exception that everyone should know about, especially if you're in the market for a new TV right now. Some companies sell televisions that ditch the proprietary platforms and instead have Fire TV software or Roku software built 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 today.

The just-released Insignia 32-inch Smart HD TV - Fire TV Edition is the single best-selling new 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 $170 but right now you can pick one up for just $139.99.

Insignia NS-32DF310NA19 32-inch Smart HD TV - Fire TV Edition: $139.99

The same brand also has a 43-inch 4K Fire TV Edition model on sale today for $229.99 instead of $300, and you can get an Insignia 50-inch 4K Fire TV for $299.99, which is also a $50 discount.

All-New Insignia NS-43DF710NA21 43-inch Smart 4K UHD - Fire TV Edition, Released 2020: $229.99

Insignia NS-50DF711SE21 50-inch 4K UHD TV - Fire TV Edition: $299.99

If you want to upgrade and get even better picture quality without spending much more money, check out the Toshiba 50LF621U21 50-inch Smart 4K UHD with Dolby Vision - Fire TV Edition. It has a stunning display, 4K resolution, and it's on sale for $329.99 right now instead of $380.

Finally, there are some great deals for people who prefer Roku to Amazon's smart TV platform. The $330 TCL 43S425 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Roku LED TV is on sale today for only $229, which is a huge $101 discount, but you'll save even more if you go for a larger screen. For a limited time, the TCL 65" Class 6-Series 4K UHD QLED Dolby Vision HDR Roku Smart TV that normally costs $1,100 is on sale for just $799.99, and the massive 75-inch model has a huge $550 discount right now, so you can get it for even less — just $749.99!

We've got some fantastic deals for you to check out to close the week, and the stars of the show are all rare opportunities to score best-selling coronavirus essentials that are almost never in stock these days. 3M KN95 face masks are somehow available right now at Amazon, and there's an even rarer chance to pick up actual 3M N100 face masks that filter 99.97% of airborne particles as opposed to around 95% for N95 and KN95 masks. The best-selling blue 3-ply coronavirus face masks on Amazon are down to a new all-time low price of just $0.44 each today, and super-popular MagiCare KN95 masks are $1.40 each instead of $3.50. Purell hand sanitizer refills are in stock at Amazon, best-selling Suave hand sanitizer is back in stock, and if you hurry you can pick up a case of 24 military-spec bottles of Purell. Finally, you have an extremely rare chance to pick up Lysol Disinfecting Wipes for $22.50 per 80-pack. That price sounds insane — and it is — but it's actually about 50% less than they usually cost these days (just look at how much Clorox wipes are). If you're in dire need, this might be your last chance in a while to get them for under $30. What a time to be alive.

This might be the best coronavirus vaccine news you’ve ever heard

BGR


At least three vaccine efforts have reached Phase 3 clinical trials in America and Europe, which is the last stage of human testing for new drugs. If successful, the vaccine candidates from Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, and AstraZeneca/Oxford could receive emergency use authorization this year, as early as October and November. This would allow officials in charge of local COVID-19 management policies to initiate immunization protocols, with high-risk people likely to be the first to receive vaccines. Healthcare workers and other frontline personnel who can be exposed to the virus, as well as older people who are likely to develop complications after infection, could be among the first to be inoculated with the final versions of vaccines. The general public would then follow, with Dr. Anthony Fauci having hinted at a timeline a few days ago. Wider-reaching vaccine programs could begin in the US sometime in early 2021.

But those calculations are all based on the assumption that the vaccines that reached Phase 3 will confirm previous results during this key testing stage. The drugs need to prove they can prevent novel coronavirus infections, and that they continue to be safe to use before the FDA and other regulators approve them. This brings us to the best coronavirus news we've heard so far.

5 Amazon deals ending soon that you definitely don’t want to miss

BGR


No one will find it a shock when we tell you about the two best-selling products covered this past week at BGR Deals. Why not? Because they have been among the best-selling products we've covered each and every week for the past few months. The best-selling 3-ply face masks on Amazon's entire site are back down to $0.50 apiece and they've been flying off the shelves this past week. Then, top-selling MagiCare KN95 face masks that are great for even better protection against the novel coronavirus to $1.40 each, so tens of thousands of our readers have rushed to stock up on them. If you want the best in the business, you can also snag 3M KN95 face masks and 3M N100 face masks, but they're going to sell out fast so you'll need to hurry.

Those are both incredible deals on essential products that everyone needs to have in this day and age. Of course, they're not the only great deals from Amazon that we covered this past week. Five of the hottest sales of the week are still happening today over at Amazon, and they're all going to be ending either today or at some point over the weekend. In other words, this is your last chance to get in on the action before it's too late!

Face masks

As we said before, you've got an extremely rare opportunity right now to pick up actual 3M KN95 face masks and 3M N100 face masks. 3M is as good as it gets, and these masks have been flying off the shelves every time they've come back in stock. Where the N100 masks are concerned, they're pricey but worth it since they're literally the best masks you can get — N100 face masks filter 99.97% of small airborne particles like viruses, compared to around 95% for N95 and KN95 masks.

5pcs Particulate 95% Protection GB2626-2006 PM2.5 type 9551 filter in US stock (NOT In the orig…: “$30.00

3M 8233PC1-B Lead Paint Removal Respirator - Quantity 10: $170.00 ($17.00 / mask)

We mentioned MagiCare KN95 face masks above, and they've been a staple among our readers for several months now. Earlier this week, however, they sold out for the first time in a very long time. They're back in stock right now at $1.40 each, but there's a good chance prices will soon start to climb again or they might sell out completely.

Magicare 4-Ply Mouth Noise Protection Filtration>95%, Compatible with Anti-Fog, Dust-Proof, Adj…: $27.99 ($1.40 / mask)

Once those are gone, you'll find a fantastic alternative in Harley Brand KN95 face masks. They're a bit more expensive at $4.40 each, but they're also tested by the CDC and found to filter approximately 99% of small airborne particles like human coronaviruses. Needless to say, that's just about the best performance on the market — N95 and KN95 face masks by definition must filter at least 95% of particulates.

HuiBo Brand 10 Pack Face Protection Mask 95% Filtration > 95% 5 Layer Against Dust, Droplets &…: $43.99 ($4.40 / mask)

Purell hand sanitizer

The first and hottest sale we need to cover here isn't necessarily a "deal," so to speak. In fact, prices are inflated so it's not a bargain at all. But you've got a rare opportunity to pick up Purell hand sanitizer and Purell sanitizing wipes on Amazon and we would be remiss if we didn't give our readers one last chance to do it. Many of the Purell listings we've covered this past week are already sold out, but the ones that are left are listed below. These will definitely be gone by the end of this weekend, so you'll need to hurry if you want some.

Table Top Stand with Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel, includes (2x) 1000mL Refills: $75 for stand and 2 liters

PURELL Quick Tabletop Stand Kit, Push-Style Corrugated Tabletop Stand and 2 PURELL NXT Hand San…: $75 for stand and 2 liters

Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer - 67.6 Fl Oz (2 Liters): $99 for 2 liters

Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel 1 OZ Travel Size: $3.99

Purell Hand Sanitizing Travel Wipes Clean Refreshing Scent 20ct ( Pack of 3): $29.99 for 3 packs

Once those all sell out — and they WILL sell out — you get Clorox hand sanitizer and best-selling Suave hand sanitizer at much better prices anyway.

Suave Hand Sanitizer Alcohol Based Kills 99.9% of Germs 10 oz,Pack of 6: $26.94 for 6 bottles

Clorox Commercial Solutions Hand Sanitizer Pump, 16.9 Ounces (02176): $17.73

Fire TV sale

A bunch of Amazon devices are on sale this week, though some deals have already ended — like the discounts on Kindle eBook readers. Amazon's hottest Fire TV devices are still discounted, however, including a surprise discount on the Fire TV Stick.

Fire TV Stick streaming media player with Alexa built in, includes Alexa Voice Remote, HD, easy…: $34.99

Bose sale

There are tons of killer deals this week on Bose products, but no deal is hotter than all-time low pricing up to $100 off Bose 700 wireless noise cancelling headphones. Popular QuietComfort 35 ANC headphones are $70 off, Bose Bluetooth earbuds cost just $99 today, and there are two wireless speaker deals you won't want to miss.

Blink XT2 wireless cameras

Amazon's Blink XT2 wireless home security camera systems are just like Arlo cameras, but with one crucial difference. Whereas Arlo cameras will give you 3 or 4 months of usage at most per charge, Blink XT2 cameras last up to 2 years before you need to change the batteries. All of Amazon's Blink XT2 options are on sale right now, and you can even add a $90 Echo Show 5 to your system for just $10.

10 hottest new shows on Netflix and TV people can’t wait to see in August 2020

BGR


With new coronavirus case numbers continuing to skyrocket all across the United States, anyone hoping that things might have calmed down once summer weather arrived has undoubtedly come to terms with reality by now. Long story short, things aren't going to go back to normal for a long, long time. People were so eager to get back out there once coronavirus lockdowns ended that they threw caution to the wind. Since there isn't any real leadership guiding us at this point, there's nothing to stop irresponsible people from putting us all at risk. Some argue that taking basic precautions like wearing a mask is somehow a violation of our freedom. Others somehow still believe that COVID-19 isn't as serious as everyone thinks it is, or that it's some kind of hoax. Unfortunately, little can be done at this point to open these people's eyes. As was the case for this coronavirus denier, some people refuse to take the disease seriously until they spread it to their entire family and start killing off their relatives.

In a nutshell, summer 2020 is going to be anything but care-free. Sure, it's great to spend some time outdoors enjoying the heat responsibly. That means wearing a face mask (yes, even outside) and practicing strict social distancing. You should also consider spending as much time as you can inside though, and there's plenty of hotly anticipated new content coming to keep you busy in August.

BGR


MagiCare KN95 face masks were best-sellers back when they were available for $70 per 20-pack. That's $3.50 per mask and it's more than worth it for the added protection compared with regular 3-ply face masks, but right now they're on sale for just $1.40 each. Needless to say, they've been selling by the thousands all week long thanks to Amazon's great sale. 3M KN95 face masks and 3M N100 face masks are somehow in stock right now too, which is practically unheard of. The CDC says that we all need to wear a face covering whenever we leave our homes and doctors say it'll be at least a year before we can even think about ditching masks, so you might as well stock up.

Aside from sanitizers, face masks, and other items that help prevent COVID-19 infections, electronics are still quite popular among our readers as well. For example, Apple's insanely popular AirPods Pro are top sellers since they're discounted right now at Amazon, and both AirPods 2 models are on sale as well. Tons of Bose headphones and wireless speakers are discounted this week as well. None of Apple's headphones are popular enough to make Amazon's top-5 list this week though, so let's take a look at which gadgets and accessories made the cut.

5. Roku Express HD

With a price tag of just $29 brand new, the Roku Express HD doesn't even need a discount to be one of Amazon's best-sellers. This week, it's #5 on the list because it's back down to an all-time low of $24.

Roku Express HD Streaming Media Player 2019: $24.00

4. Fire TV Stick 4K

In the #4 spot this week, we have the Fire TV Stick 4K that's probably the best streaming media device Amazon has ever made, in terms of value. It also comes with a full year of Food Network Kitchen for free if you grab one right now.

Fire TV Stick 4K plus 1 year subscription to Food Network Kitchen at no additional cost (with a…: $49.99

3. Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera

The Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera System is just like Arlo's battery-powered home security camera system, but it features battery life of up to 2 years instead of just a few months if you're lucky. All of Amazon's Blink XT2 packages are discounted today, and you can even toss in a $90 Echo Show 5 for just $10.

Blink XT2 Outdoor/Indoor Smart Security Camera with cloud storage included, 2-way audio, 2-year…: $64.99 - $294.99

2. Echo Dot

The $50 Echo Dot is always a best-seller at Amazon and a big part of the reason why is because it often goes on sale for even less than $50. Head over to Amazon now and you'll find Dots on sale for $39.99 each when you buy two with the coupon code DOT2PK.

Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - Smart speaker with Alexa - Plum: 39.99 each (use code DOT2PK)

1. Fire TV Stick

The Fire TV Stick is in the #1 spot this week thanks to a surprise discount, and it also comes with a free year of Food Network Kitchen right now. If you have a smaller TV or you simply don't care about having support for 4K resolution, this is one of the best streaming media players money can buy.

Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote plus 1 year subscription to Food Network Kitchen at no ad…: $34.99

Get 3M face masks and NIOSH-approved filters before Amazon remembers they’re only for hospitals

When it comes to coronavirus essentials on Amazon right now, the big news is that Purell hand sanitizer is somehow in stock and it's actually available for anyone to buy instead of just hospitals and government agencies. The best value you'll find right now is the tabletop kit with 2 liters of Purell sanitizer for $79.95, and you can use it as a dispenser or to fill empty pump and squeeze bottles that you already have. Purell wipes and Lysol wipes are even in stock right now, though prices are severely inflated so you should only get them if you have an urgent need. If you want sanitizer from a top brand without overpaying, pick up a 6-pack of Suave hand sanitizer instead.

Of course, there's another type of personal protective product that everyone needs right now, and we've got some great news for you on that front as well. Everyone knows that the number of new COVID-19 cases is skyrocketing in most US states right now, and doctors agree that we'll have to keep wearing face masks for at least a year. By not wearing a face mask when you go out, you're putting yourself and your family at risk unnecessarily. The good news is that prices have come down a lot lately, and there are also some new options that used to be available only to hospitals and government agencies.

Most of the time, you can get away with wearing a simple face covering like Amazon's best-selling 3-layer face masks. As long as you wear them whenever you're outside your home and you also practice social distancing, these masks will do a fine job of protecting you and those around you. They also happen to be on sale right now at a new all-time low price of only 44¢ each thanks to a discount and a coupon on the Amazon page, so you really have no excuses.

Jointown Face Mask, Pack of 50 (5081): $21.95 ($0.44 / mask)

In addition to those masks for everyday use, however, it is also good to have some face masks that offer better protection on hand. For higher-risk situations like taking public transportation or visiting a doctor's office, however, it's good to have added protection. MagiCare KN95 face masks are the most popular option among our readers, and they have been for quite a while. They're on sale for just under $1.40 each right now, which is a phenomenal price when you consider 20-packs normally cost $70. Definitely grab a few packs to keep on hand before they sell out.

Magicare 4-Ply Mouth Noise Protection Filtration>95%, Compatible with Anti-Fog, Dust-Proof, Adj…: $27.99 ($1.40 / mask)

Those are all best-selling masks that should do a fine job, but another option just became available thanks to a mistake that someone made over at Amazon — that's right, Amazon has 3M respirator masks available right now on its site for anyone and everyone to order. What's more, they start at just $19.99 each, so you won't pay insanely gouged prices like you will on eBay and elsewhere.

First, let's cover the masks that will definitely sell out soon. You can pick up a 5-pack of 3M KN95 face masks right now for $30, and there are actual 3M N100 face masks in stock right now at Amazon. These are literally the best face masks you can buy — they filter 99.97% of airborne particles compared to about 95% with N95 and KN95 masks.

5pcs Particulate 95% Protection GB2626-2006 PM2.5 type 9551 filter in US stock (NOT In the orig…: “$30.00

3M 8233PC1-B Lead Paint Removal Respirator - Quantity 10: $170.00 ($17.00 / mask)

As for reusable masks, 3M 6000 series face masks are among the best in the business. They're made of high-quality materials that are impervious to germs and viruses, and they use replaceable filters. Some are rated P95, which means they filter at least 95% percent of tiny airborne particles like aerosolized coronavirus (they're just like N95, but they also filter oil-based particles instead of just airborne particles). You can also get filters rated P100, which means they filter at least 99.97% of particles including particles in oils. Even though these masks are typically available on Amazon only to hospitals and government agencies, they're not the kind of disposable N95 masks that hospital workers use. That means you're not taking inventory away from healthcare workers, so you shouldn't feel bad about buying these.

Large 3M 6300 respirator face masks and small 3M 6100 masks are both in stock right now at Amazon and ready to ship, as are medium 3M 6200 face masks. You'll need filter attachments as well, and you can find plenty of great options for NIOSH-approved P95 and P100 particulate filters to go with them.

3M Reusable Face Mask Respirators: $19.99+

For filters, we've got tons of great NIOSH-approved options for you that are all ready to ship and will arrive at your home within a week. Many are made by 3M itself, and there are tons of other options right here on Amazon.

NIOSH-approved P95 and P100 Particulate Filters: $9.99+

The novel coronavirus isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Again, most doctors say we'll have to keep wearing face masks outside our homes for at least a year. Face masks shouldn't be reused more than a few times at most, so we're going to need plenty of them in the months to come. Just take a look at the news and you'll see that coronavirus cases are already climbing again all across the country. We've only barely just begun to reopen the economies in many states across the US, so face masks will be an ongoing need for the foreseeable future. Definitely pick up a few of these masks and enough filters to last you a while.

Apple confirms iPhone 12 release has been delayed

BGR


Several reports said in the past few months that Apple would not be able to ship its iPhone 12 on time this year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Typically, Apple unveils new iPhones in the second week of September, and that’s when preorders start. The handsets are delivered a couple of weeks later, on the same Friday that store sales start. Reports that followed said that some of the four iPhone 12 that are in development could make the late September launch, while others will see some delays. Earlier this week, Qualcomm said that one of its main customers would postpone the launch of a flagship phone that was supposed to hit stores this quarter, and the delay will impact its earnings. Separately, a rising Apple leaker said that the iPhone 12 would be launched in October alongside new iPad models. We didn’t expect Apple to confirm such rumors anytime soon, but the company did just that via an unusual statement. Then again, 2020 is a strange year, with COVID-19 impacting almost everything about regular life that we took for granted.

Google leak reveals Pixel 5 camera features

BGR


This year’s Pixel flagship will be a disappointing compromise, and that’s according to several leaks that said the Pixel 5 would run on a mid-range 5G processor. The Snapdragon 765G is the same chip that powers the OnePlus Nord, as well as mid-range phones from LG, Samsung, Nokia, and others. The processor will no match for the 865 chip inside most 2020 Android flagships, and it has no chance of competing against the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12 models. As I’ve explained recently, the Nord appears to be a much better choice than the Pixel 5 right now, considering what you get for your money. But the Pixel 5 does have one advantage over most of its Android rivals, and that’s the camera department. The phone is expected to deliver a better camera performance than its predecessors, and a new Google leak indicates some of the new camera tricks that are coming to the Pixel 5 and possibly other Pixel handsets this year.

I can’t wait for this new Pixar movie

BGR


Luca, the new Pixar movie that the animation studio unveiled on Thursday, is set to arrive next summer, and if you paid close enough attention to the details surrounding this upcoming title -- a coming-of-age story about a young boy growing up in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera -- you could be forgiven for feeling a little hopeful. It can be exceedingly difficult to find reasons for optimism amid this time, the first global pandemic than many of us have lived through and a period that engenders a sense of despair, at times, over how comprehensively it's wrecked any sense of normalcy.

And then you look around and see the rhythms of life, going on. Pixar has currently slotted this new movie, from director Enrico Casarosa, for June 18, 2021. And I don't know about you, but it's certainly nice to imagine (hope, even) that the coronavirus situation will be improved enough that we can all head back to a multiplex by next summer and enjoy a beautiful, happy, new Pixar creation where it's meant to be viewed. On the big screen.

Coronavirus aerosol transmission might be even worse than we think

BGR


The Diamond Princess cruise ship gained worldwide notoriety in early February when Japanese authorities quarantined the boat in Port of Yokohama looking to contain the COVID-19 infection aboard the vessel. Eventually, 712 of the 3,711 passengers and crew on board tested positive, and 14 died by the time the Diamond Princess docked. The ship has been the subject of some studies, considering that it offered researchers a unique view of the behavior of the virus inside a population that was confined to the ship for several weeks.

The newest research might prove that one of the worst things about the novel coronavirus should be a real worry for authorities looking to contain COVID-19 outbreaks. That’s the aerosol transmission, a topic that keeps popping up in COVID-19 more and more often. The World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledged the risk of COVID-19 spread via the air a few weeks ago but still maintained that the larger saliva droplets that are ejected during talking, sneezing, and coughing are the primary way the virus spreads. The new Diamond Princess study says it can quantify the aerosol transmission inside the cruise ship.
