Broadly speaking, you get a great set of features in phones that come unlocked and carrier-agnostic: They’re compatible with both CDMA and GSM networks, meaning you can use them with pretty much any US carrier.One thing, though: Many of Motorola’s sale prices are mere matches for the everyday prices offered on Amazon, though some of those prices are for Prime subscribers only. But there are a few better deals, like the Moto Z2 Play for $200. Amazon’s price: $239.Read more: The best phones for 2019CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

Apple Good morning, cheeps! A couple quick housekeeping items to start the day. First, following yesterday’s maddening price-jump on the Acer camera, which happened mere minutes after I posted the deal, I’d like to encourage you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. That’s the best way to get updates when such issues arise. I also frequently share bonus deals throughout the day!Second, If you happen to live in southeast Michigan, come meet me this Saturday, April 6, at the Plymouth District Library at 10 a.m. I’ll be sharing some of my best money-saving secrets and handing out swag and raffle prizes. (Your chances of winning something: excellent.) Come on out! Bring a friend!As a longtime iPad fan, I’ve definitely experienced a little lust for the iPad Pro 12.9 — you know, the big one. But $999? No way, no how. And that was for the Wi-Fi-only model.Check this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, B&H has the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 with Wi-Fi and LTE (64GB) in gold for $599 shipped, which I believe ranks as one of the best deals ever on this particular configuration.See it at B&HThis is the 2017 model, so it still has a home button and still relies on Touch ID rather than Face ID. Surprisingly, it’s new, not refurbished, which is usually the only way you’d see a price this low.And speaking of that, Apple proper sells the refurbished iPad Pro 12.9 for $589 — but it’s the Wi-Fi-only version. A mere $10 more buys you retail packaging and the LTE option. (That said, Apple’s refurbs are pretty much good as new, right down to the new battery and one-year warranty.)See it at AppleAt this size, and paired with a Bluetooth keyboard, the iPad Pro could potentially take the place of a laptop. And the LTE option is something few laptops have, a boon if you often find yourself “in the field.”I’m not sure how long these will last at this price, so if you think you might be interested, act fast. As we learned yesterday, the best deals often disappear in a hurry.Read more: Apple iPad Pro 12.9 review iPad Pro 2017 review: ProMotion for me!

Russia identifies Saint Petersburg bomber

first_imgAkbarjon Djalilov, an alleged suspect in the April 3 blast in the Saint Petersburg metro. Photo: AFPRussian investigators Tuesday identified the bomber in the deadly Saint Petersburg metro blast as 22-year-old Akbarjon Djalilov, as Russia’s second city mourned the 14 people killed.The Investigative Committee said in a statement that Djalilov “carried out an explosion” in the carriage of a train travelling between two busy stations on Monday afternoon.Djalilov’s “genetic trace” was also found on a bag containing a second bomb left at another metro station and later defused, the statement said.Authorities in Central Asian Kyrgyzstan said that Djalilov was an ethnic Uzbek who was born in its southern city of Osh but was a citizen of Russia and had lived there since the age of 16.The remains of the bomber were found at the scene of the blast, but it was not clear if he is included in the official toll of the attack.Flags flew at half-mast in Russia’s second city and flowers and candles piled up at an impromptu memorial outside the metro station rocked by the attack, as authorities beefed up security on the busy underground transport system.The Kremlin said the bombing was “a challenge to every Russian”, including President Vladimir Putin.The bombing raised jitters ahead of the Confederations Cup football tournament in June, with the opening game and final set to be held in Saint Petersburg as Russia gears up towards hosting the World Cup next year.Commuters on the busy Saint Petersburg metro remained on edge after the system temporarily shut down Monday in the wake of the attack.“Everyone in the metro can only think of this,” said 45-year-old Svetlana Golubeva as she entered the underground.Resident Dmitry Leonov said there was a sense of shock that terror could strike the city as he picked his way through the candles and flower tributes lining the gates of the station.“Now we’re all under threat,” he said.‘Food for thought’Putin, who hails from Saint Petersburg, was holding a meeting near the city at the time of the bombing and later on Monday added his own floral tribute at the scene.“The fact that the act of terror was perpetrated at the moment that the head of state was in the city is food for thought,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.A spokesman for Kyrgyzstan’s security services, Rakhat Sulaimanov, told AFP in Bishkek that authorities of the ex-Soviet republic were in contact with their Russian counterparts over the case.There has not been a claim of responsibility for the attack, which came after the Islamic State group called for attacks on Russia in retribution for its military intervention in Syria against the jihadists.Russia has long been battling an Islamist insurgency in its volatile Caucasus region and has suffered a string of bloody terror attacks over the years.Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said the toll from the blast had climbed from 11 to 14 Tuesday as three people succumbed to their injuries, adding that 49 more people remained in hospital.Those hurt include citizens of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, as well as Russians from 13 different regions, according to the Saint Petersburg authorities.The chief of the Saint Petersburg metro, Vladimir Garyugin, said Tuesday that quick actions by staff prevented a much higher toll and that passengers had helped each other instead of panicking.The second bomb was an explosive device fashioned from a fire extinguisher and hidden in a bag, he said.“A metro employee quickly cordoned off the area and called in experts,” Garyugin said in televised remarks.‘Barbaric act’In the wake of the attack Putin spoke to a string of leaders around the globe—including holding only his second phone call with US President Donald Trump overnight.Trump offered Putin the “full support of the United States Government,” according to a White House statement.Putin also talked up cooperation in the fight against terrorism with leaders in Germany, France, Turkey and the king of Saudi Arabia.The attack in Saint Petersburg is the first in several years to hit a major city in Russia.In October 2015, a bomb attack claimed by IS downed a plane carrying holidaymakers back to Saint Petersburg from Egypt in October 2015. All 224 people onboard were killed.Russian ground transport has also been hit by extremists before, including in the Moscow metro and the Domodedovo airport, where a blast claimed by Islamic insurgents killed 37 people in 2011.In an apparently unrelated incident, two traffic policemen were killed overnight in the southern city of Astrakhan when unidentified assailants opened fire on them, the regional governor said, calling them “radical Islamists.”last_img read more
