Walmart to host ‘revamped’ Black Friday via multiple online and in-store events [Video]

Walmart (WMT), the world’s largest retailer, will host a “revamped” Black Friday to avoid those doorbuster crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic by prompting shoppers to seek holiday deals online and in less crowded stores.

Instead of a single in-store shopping bonanza, Walmart will spread its Black Friday across three separate events and multiple days in November. Called “Black Friday Deals for Days,” the events will all start online before transitioning to in-stores a few days later. The big-box retailer will also offer shoppers contact-free, curbside pickup at its stores for Black Friday orders.

Black Friday has long been considered the unofficial kick-off to the holiday shopping season and one of the most crucial retail calendar periods. However, this year, the coronavirus pandemic is forcing retailers to rethink the holiday shopping event to avoid those large crowds. As a result, many retailers are getting a jumpstart on holiday deals online and

Apple’s online store is down in anticipation of its “Hi, Speed” event later on Tuesday, suggesting at least some products may be available to pre-order or order immediately after the event.


The placeholder for the U.S. online store says “We’re making updates to the Apple store. Check back soon.”

Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event will be a virtual media event, where the company is expected to take the wraps off its flagship iPhone 12 lineup, a smaller, more affordable HomePod, and potentially other products.

We’ve heard conflicting rumors about when Apple’s new iPhone models will be available to order, but Apple is expected to stagger the launches this year, and we’re not expecting ‌iPhone‌ pre-orders to open immediately.

Chinese leaker Kang, who has provided accurate information in the past, claims pre-orders for the 6.1-inch ‌‌iPhone 12‌‌ and ‌‌iPhone 12‌‌ Pro models could begin this coming Friday, October 16, with the first

Nvidia Removes RTX 3080, RTX 3090 From Online Store

Nvidia’s 30 Series launch is still experiencing challenges thanks to all this demand for its powerful new graphics cards. First it was bots and scalpers robbing honest consumers of an opportunity to buy the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. Then it was the brief — albeit polarizing — “Capacitor-Gate,” as well as the RTX 3070 being delayed. Now there’s a new wrinkle: Nvidia is suspending sales of its Founders Edition cards and will instead rely on its “other partners.”

Here’s Nvidia’s statement: “We have heard your feedback regarding the NVIDIA online store and are working to improve the experience. In the meantime, we will be selling our GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Founders Edition through other partners. In the US, you can shop for Founders Edition at Best Buy.

What about Europeans interested in 30 Series Founders Edition cards? Nvidia says it

Apple culls Beats webpage from online store ahead of ‘iPhone 12’ event

Apple has altered its website to remove a page for “Beats by Dre,” a possible sign that the company is shifting itself away from the headphone electronics brand in favor of its own name.

Since the purchase of Beats in 2014, Apple has promoted the popular brand at the same time as its own products, and in recent years technologies developed by Apple have crossed over to Beats devices. However, it seems that Apple is slowly moving from promoting Beats on its own website, by removing a prominent page about the hardware.

Spotted by Apple Terminal, the page in the online Apple Store for “Beats by Dr. Dre” listed the Beats products Apple sold, across multiple product lines. The list ranged from the wireless Powerbeats Pro earphones to premium over-ear models like the Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones.

The exact date of when the page was taken

Privacy push could stop some annoying website pop-ups and online tracking

If you’re sick of websites tracking you and just as frustrated with website pop-ups prompting you to dig through obscure browser cookie settings — good news. An alliance including web publishers and browser makers has developed technology to stop websites from selling or sharing the data they gather about you, and you can try it now.

If the effort succeeds, a single setting in your browser could forbid website publishers from selling your data — at least if you live in California. And unlike a related effort years ago called Do Not Track, this one could have legal teeth.

Allies include publishers like The New York Times and Washington Post and browser makers Brave and Mozilla . One way to try it is with the Nightly test version of Brave, the browser maker said. Another is by installing DuckDuckGo’s mobile browser or desktop browser

4 Reasons Levi’s New Online Secondhand Store Is Genius

With nothing more than a passing glance, it just looks like another way of widening the company’s promotional web. Recycled apparel is in vogue, so if nothing else, there’s publicity value packed into the idea. The new online venture from denim apparel brand Levi Strauss (NYSE:LEVI) that will resell secondhand jeans, however, is actually quite brilliant for a handful of reasons.

Levi’s Secondhand checks off a lot of boxes

Like all for-profit corporations, this one’s had to adapt. Consumers are prioritizing — and rewarding — good stewardship of the planet’s resources. Some shoppers make a point of patronizing businesses that operate responsibly. These shifts in cultural norms have particularly put the fashion industry in the hot seat, since it alone accounts for around one-tenth of the world’s annual carbon emissions, and its pollution output is expected to grow before it contracts.

One simple step in the other direction is reusing

Proud Boys Website, Online Store Dropped by Web Host

The Proud Boys, an FBI-designated extremist group with ties to white nationalism, lost its web host for the group’s website and online store following efforts from advocacy group Color of Change.

“After a heads up from Color of Change, we notified one of our customers — a website hoster — who then took action. The websites in question were not Google Cloud customers,” a Google Cloud spokesperson told TheWrap on Friday.

As of Friday evening, however, the extremist group appears to have gotten a new host for its website, but the online store is not currently taking orders and a note to online customers says that the “migration to a new webhost has taken longer than anticipated.”
