Dealmaster: Get big discounts on 4K TVs from Vizio, LG, and TCL

Ars Technica - January 15, 2019 - 8:44pm

Enlarge (credit: TechBargains)

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a handful of high-end 4K TV deals, with the likes of Vizio's P-Series, TCL's 6-Series Roku TVs, and LG's B8 OLED TVs all on sale.

As we noted last year, we're nearing the time when TV deals start to reach their apex. Black Friday has passed and this year's models are getting introduced, which means prices on many of the still-great models of 2018 will gradually drop until they are discontinued for good. It's very much possible that the TVs highlighted below will get even cheaper as the year goes on, but if you're interested in grabbing a high-end 4K HDR TV ahead of the Super Bowl, have a look at the various deals below.

And if you don't need a new TV, we also have deals on Black Ops 4, cheap wireless workout headphones, Echo devices, and more.

Spidey takes on the Elementals in first Spider Man: Far From Home trailer

Ars Technica - January 15, 2019 - 8:30pm

Marvel's Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer.

Powerful inter-dimensional beings are wreaking havoc across Europe, Spidey finds a new ally in Mysterio, and Aunt May is getting it on with Happy Hogan in the first trailer for Spider-man: Far From Home.

(Spoilers for Infinity War below.)

When we last saw Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), [corrected] he was breaking our hearts by turning to dust in front of his mentor, Tony Stark. (Stupid Thanos with his stupid Infinity Glove.) Far From Home will purportedly pick up a few minutes after the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, so we can presume that the planned "Un-Snappening" was successful. Also returning from dust for this outing: Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders).

On GMO safety, the fiercest opponents understand the least

Ars Technica - January 15, 2019 - 8:15pm

Science is our most effective means of understanding the natural world, yet the public doesn't always accept the understanding that it produces. Researchers have been trying to figure out why there's a gap between science and the public for decades, an effort that is becoming increasingly relevant as the US seems to have a growing discomfort with facts in general. In some cases, the issue is clearly cultural: politics and religion appear to have strong influences on whether people accept the science on climate change and evolution, respectively.

It would be easy to think that the controversy over GMO foods is similar. After all, opposition to GMOs is often ascribed to liberal granola eaters. But several polls have suggested that's not the case, as there's as much discomfort about GMOs on the right as there is on the left. Now, a new study in Nature Human Behavior suggests an alternate explanation: opposition to GMOs is highest among those who know the least about genetics but have convinced themselves they're experts. Or as the authors put it, "Extreme opponents know the least but think they know the most."

Science literacy

A US-Canadian team of researchers started off by having a demographically diverse group of 500 US residents answer a series of questions. Participants were asked to rate their level of concern with and opposition to GMOs. As had been found in past surveys, there was a lot of uncertainty about the biotechnology; more than 90 percent of respondents reported concern, and a similar number were somewhat opposed to its use. But that opposition didn't break down along political lines: "there were no significant differences in extremity of opposition between self-reported liberals, moderates, and conservatives."
