Dealmaster: Take $50 off Bose’s flagship noise-cancelling headphones

Ars Technica - 1 hour 41 min ago

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal on Bose's QuietComfort 35 (Series II) wireless noise-cancelling headphones, which are currently down to $299 at Walmart, Amazon, and various other retailers. That's a $50 discount and the lowest non-promo-code price we've seen to date.

We've explained the deal with the QC35s before. While Bose's bass-boosting sound doesn't offer the accuracy or balance of other $300 cans (or even some below that), it's at least smooth. If noise cancellation is your top priority, though, the QC35s are simply stronger at silencing the outside world (particularly low-end frequencies) than their peers. They're also highly comfortable.

The Series II model here is actually a bit less effective at noise-cancellation than the older Series I model mentioned in the link above, but the difference isn't so huge as to be immediately noticeable. Since Bose has discontinued the Series I, you don't have much of a choice anyway. The Series II also adds a shortcut button for quickly accessing Alexa or the Google Assistant, if that's something you'd ever find handy. In any case, we rarely see the Series II on sale, so if you were interested in picking up a pair, today looks like a good opportunity to do so.

FCC says court made error in approval of AT&T/Time Warner merger

Ars Technica - 3 hours 17 min ago

The Department of Justice's attempt to reverse the AT&T/Time Warner merger received some help yesterday from an unexpected source: the Federal Communications Commission.

The FCC previously allowed AT&T to buy Time Warner without having to undergo a lengthy public-interest review, despite pushback from Democrats in the Senate and FCC. The DOJ fought the merger alone, ultimately losing a court ruling that allowed AT&T to complete the acquisition.

But the DOJ appealed that court ruling last month, and yesterday the FCC gave the DOJ's case a small boost. The FCC isn't actually supporting the DOJ's case, but the commission's filing points out an error made by the US District Court for the District of Columbia. In US District Judge Richard Leon's ruling against the DOJ, he said that he was "hesitant to assign any significant evidentiary value" to previous statements that AT&T and the AT&T-owned DirecTV made to the FCC. AT&T's own statements to the FCC, made in the years prior to the AT&T/Time Warner merger, supported the DOJ's case that a merged entity could raise the price of programming. Those AT&T statements were made as part of the FCC's 2010 review of the Comcast/NBCUniversal merger and in other FCC proceedings.
