PS5 Restock Updates: Check PS5 Stock At GameStop, Walmart, Best Buy, Target, And Amazon

Update: A Walmart Canada PS5 restock is in progress after it kicked off at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET–as of 11:15 AM ET the site is currently experiencing a high amount of traffic and not loading right away.


Despite recent PS5 restocks at stores like Walmart and GameStop, including ones on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s been frustratingly difficult to find a PS5 or PS5 Digital available to buy directly from a major retailer for many months now. Now that we’re officially in December and Christmas is just weeks away, it makes sense to wonder when stores like Walmart, GameStop, Target, and Best Buy will have more PS5 units available for shoppers. A tweet from Sony confirmed that “more inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year,” but that doesn’t make the scramble to get your hands on a PS5 console any

Xbox Restock Updates: Check Xbox Series X Stock At Walmart, Best Buy, Target, GameStop, And More

The busy holiday sales period brought by Cyber Monday and Black Friday is finally behind us, and now that Christmas is just weeks away, hopeful Xbox Series X and Series S buyers are likely wondering if another Xbox restock is planned before the holidays. Microsoft’s next-generation consoles have been out of stock since nearly the moment they launched, and subsequent Xbox restocks have sold out immediately, including ones on launch day and Black Friday. Bots and scalpers have made the situation even harder by snatching up stock as soon as it appears and reselling it on Ebay. With both demand and product shortages heightened by the current pandemic, it’s been extremely hard to buy the Xbox Series X for months now, so if you’re still finding yourself empty-handed, you’re not alone.

Now that Black Friday sales are over, there’s no other obvious restock period left in 2020, and Microsoft has

88 Absolute Best Black Friday Deals Still Going (2020): Amazon, Walmart, Target, Etc.

Specs: Intel Core i7 CPU, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD

This laptop might not look flashy, but it’s solid, and WIRED reviewer Scott Gilbertson likes the keyboard a lot. It isn’t the most powerful editing or gaming machine, but if you aren’t looking to do anything too CPU-heavy, it’s a safe bet.

Asus Chromebook Flip C434 for $479 ($91 off)

Amazon

Specs: Intel Core M3 CPU, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB SSD

This is our favorite Chromebook. It strikes a good balance between price, power, and features. The 2-in-1 design allows for a tablet mode when you’re watching movies (or using Android apps), but you can simply stick to the traditional laptop mode too. The screen is sharp compared with other Chromebooks, and the battery lasts all day.

Navy tests autonomous drone as target for laser weapon testing

Nov. 25 (UPI) — The U.S. Navy Surface War Center announced a test in which an autonomous drone was launched and landed on a moving ship as a target for laser weapons.

The tests, held last week at the NSWC Division at Port Hueneme, Calif., involved software made for the Navy by Planck Aerosystems Inc. that allow the drone to follow the ship without people controlling it, the Navy said.

The four-rotor drone, called a quadcopter, took off, hovered and flew alongside a ship, and then landed on stationary and moving ships.

The 50-pound drone, with a rotor span of about four feet, will eventually carry performance-measuring electronics test the Navy’s Laser Weapon System Demonstrator, currently installed on the amphibious transport dock ship USS Portland.

The drone uses autonomous navigation software designed so unmanned aerial vehicles can correctly maneuver and operate independently of ships and other moving platforms.

Black Friday Sales 2020: Best Deals And Store Hours At Walmart, Target, And More

In the United States, Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, known as the best time to save money on big-ticket items like TVs, consoles, games, and other tech. With the holiday season approaching, it’s also the best time to cross names off your shopping list and snag a deal or two for yourself. (After this year, you deserve it.) Since is still a very real threat in the US, Black Friday 2020 is going to look much different from previous years, however. Health officials are urging families to forego Thanksgiving dinner altogether and to stay home. Those planning to do their holiday shopping the day after Thanksgiving will have to make new plans if they want to get the best items on sale before gift-giving season begins.

Fortunately, online shopping exists, and Black Friday has been developing a strong online presence with each passing year. With

Short Sellers Target Ping An’s Fintech Unit After Ant IPO Fiasco

(Bloomberg) — The headwinds that toppled Ant Group Co.’s initial public offering now threaten a $22 billion dream of China’s Ping An Insurance (Group) Co. — to pivot from a finance group to a tech giant and be valued like one.

While Ping An’s Lufax Holding Ltd., which offers wealth management and retail lending services, was able to complete its U.S. IPO days before new Chinese rules torpedoed Ant’s $35 billion sale, the stock has given up early gains and is now a target for short sellers. Renewed threats by U.S. regulators to delist Chinese stocks also threaten Ping An’s plans to take more of its in-house startups public.

Ant’s IPO suspension “fundamentally changed near-term investment appetite” for Chinese fintech stocks, with Lufax as “the community’s No. 1 consensus short,” according to a Nov. 5 report from Procensus, which polled 84 global investors managing $15.3 trillion. Short interest

Facebook’s purchases of WhatsApp, Instagram target of likely antitrust case

As the state and federal probes enter their final phases, investigators have explored how Instagram and WhatsApp changed in the years after Facebook purchased them, according to the three people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a law enforcement proceeding. Government antitrust watchdogs have weighed whether to contend in lawsuits that these transactions have left users with worse services — and fewer privacy protections — than they might have had if the companies had remained independent, the sources said.

With the text-messaging service WhatsApp, in particular, Facebook had promised users that it would preserve the messaging company’s independence and strong privacy protections when it was purchased in 2014. It made the same commitment to regulators, who then gave a greenlight to the deal. But Facebook reversed course years later and has sought to integrate its users’ data with the social networking site’s other

State-backed hackers are trying audacious tactics to break into the systems of COVID-19 vaccine-makers.

In a blog post Friday, Microsoft detailed several attempted cyberattacks it had detected in recent months that targeted companies working on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments. Microsoft said three state-hacking groups, one Russian and two from North Korea, conducted the attacks.

Although it did not name the targets, Microsoft said they included seven “prominent” companies involved in researching COVID-19 vaccine and treatment development across the US, Canada, France, India, and South

Tesla Price Target Raised By Morgan Stanley

Tesla  (TSLA) – Get Report finally has won the favor of Morgan Stanley’s equity research team.

Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones on Wednesday raised Tesla to overweight for the first time in more than three years, predicting that the electric carmaker is on the verge of a “profound model shift” from selling cars to generating high-margin software and services revenue.

“To only value Tesla on car sales alone ignores the multiple businesses embedded within the company,” Jonas said in a research note to clients as he upgraded the shares from equal-weight and raised his price target by 50% to $540 from $360, suggesting 22% additional upside for the stock.

In his note, Jonas wrote that Tesla is “on the verge of a profound model shift” from selling cars to generating high margin, recurring software and services revenue, and that its electric vehicle business is Tesla’s and CEO Elon
