Google Chromes Canvas app lets you unleash your artistic ability

first_img Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Comments Post a comment Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Angela Lang/CNET $520 at HP Sprint Rylo Amazon Chrome Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

This gives you a massive range of palettes.Your drawing is saved to your Google account, and you can download it as a PNG file.Drawing with a mouse or touchpad isn’t ideal (as evidenced by our quick attempt), so would-be Google Canvas artists probably will be better off using a stylus and touchscreen.

Disclosure of property jewelry and overseas account holdings not allowed in PMGKY

first_imgThe Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Wednesday clarified that assets in overseas accounts, jewelry, stocks and immovable property cannot be declared through the government’s new tax amnesty scheme. Black money purge: Demonetisation not a cure, says AssochamUnder the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana (PMGKY), the CBDT said, only undisclosed income deposited in any bank or post office account can be declared by paying 50 percent of the amount in taxes and surcharges. Also, a quarter of the total sum should be parked in a non-interest bearing deposit for four years. In 2016, the government had announced its first Income Disclosure Scheme (IDS), which closed on September 30, 2016, for holders of unaccounted wealth held in cash as well as other forms such as immovable property and jewelry. Under the new income disclosure plan, a person can avail the scheme for any assessment year commencing on or before April 1, 2017. Further, deposits made in the bank account prior to the financial year 2016-17 can also be declared under the scheme.The tax department noted that a declaration under the PMGKY Scheme can be filed for deposits made in an account maintained with a specified entity by any mode such as cash, cheque, RTGS, NEFT or any electronic transfer system. The cash seized by the department and deposited in the public deposit account may be allowed to be adjusted for making payment of tax, surcharge and penalty under the scheme on the request of the person from whom the cash is seized. “However, the said amount shall not be allowed to be adjusted for making deposits under the scheme.” On the issue of a person against whom a search/survey operation has been initiated, such a person is “eligible to file the declaration under the scheme,” the CBDT said. However, no credit for advance tax paid, TDS or TCS shall be allowed under the PMGKY.last_img read more

Steve Ballmer Aims to Reinvent Watching Sports on TV with Clippers CourtVision

first_img“What we want to do was require a machine to understand the game like a coach or a human did to augment the proper things,” said Rajiv Maheswaran, CEO and Co-Founder, Second Spectrum. His company is also exploring potential applications in other sports including soccer and hockey.The features are expected to be just the first of many that will be added to CourtVision in the coming months to increase the interactivity and visual flair of games. Some Clippers season ticket holders, for instance, will already get the chance to take part in a beta experience that will allow them to watch the game for a menu of seven different camera angles, or to forego the play-by-play commentary to listen instead to live sound inside the arena. Ballmer hopes the 1.0 version of CourtVision is the first of many iterations to a technology he hopes will have a transformative effect on sports broadcasting.“You can’t compare it to email or word processors,” he said at a pre-game press conference at the Clippers’ Staples Center home in Los Angeles, hearkening back to some of the innovations he helped make popular while at Microsoft. “But when you think about it from an entertainment perspective, it’s right up there.”Publicly available with today’s game, CourtVision can be accessed on devices that use iOs or Android via the Fox Sports mobile app for subscribers of pay-TV services in the Los Angeles market that carry the Fox Sports Prime Ticket channel, the exclusive TV home of the Clippers. Authenticated subscribers can also access CourtVision via FoxSportsGo.com.While the app is currently available for mobile and PC, it can ported over to the big screen via screen-casting technologies like Apple TV. Ballmer is hopeful connected TV devices will eventually provide access to the app itself.CourtVision is powered by a blend of artificial intelligence and augmented reality, two of the most buzzed-about tech trends today. Second Spectrum essentially created software that could be taught to understand the nuances of on-court action, to the point where the third version of CourtVision, “coach mode,” is capable of diagram the plays the athletes are executing seconds after they occur.While the AI component of CourtVision allows it to understand the game of basketball, the AR component powers its ability to project the “coach mode” diagram to appear on TV screens as if it on the floor of the court just inches away from the players they are charting. While not altogether different than other AR elements used sparingly in other sports like the virtual first-down marker in NFL games, CourtVision constantly fills up the screen with many such images. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses. Rapunzel, Mulan, Ariel,Tiana, Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine all got some love from the Disney stars.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpJennifer Lopez Shares How She Became a Mogul04:350.5x1x1.25×1.5x2xLive00:0002:1502:15 When he was the CEO at Microsoft over a decade ago, Steve Ballmer dreamed of bringing interactivity to TV. He explored the possibilities of innovating everywhere from scripted entertainment to video games, but didn’t get far.Now as CEO of pro basketball’s Los Angeles Clippers, his dream is finally becoming a reality Wednesday when his team takes to the court for the opening game of the NBA season.After four years of development in partnership with an analytics firm, Second Spectrum, in which Ballmer is an investor, Clippers CourtVision will allow viewers to customize the game-watching experience with a range of visual bells and whistles far beyond the on-screen graphics on display in a typical televised sporting event.CourtVision (see video here) offers viewers three different alternatives as a supplement to the traditional broadcast ranging from “mascot mode,” which inserts fun animations like a lightning bolt that appears to electrify the actual backboard after a player makes a shot, to “player mode,” which could appeal to hardcore fans by projecting over player’s heads the probabilities they can hit a shot based on where they are on the court. The calculations are based on player statistics that change on a near-real-time basis. Popular on Variety last_img read more
