Looking for a TV upgrade so you can better enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows? Smart move: Bigger is always better, especially when it comes to sports. And here's the good news: Amazon is still heavily discounting its Fire TV Omni Series, with savings of up to 45% on models ranging from 43 to 65 inches. These are some of the best prices we've seen on these TVs.
The Omni Series is notable for a few reasons, not the least of which is the integrated hands-free Alexa voice assistant. That means you can say things like, "Alexa, turn on the TV," or "Alexa, go to Netflix," without having to touch anything. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but trust me when I say it quickly starts to become indispensable.
What's more, you can plug in a compatible webcam to enjoy big-screen Zoom calls. (Find out what happened when I tried out this feature.) These TVs are packed with features, but the most attractive is the built-in Fire TV functionality. It makes them so easy to navigate and instantly gives you access to thousands of TV shows and movies through all of your favorite streaming services. If you subscribe to Amazon Luna, you can even use these TVs to stream video games — no console needed!
One user raved about the sound quality. "I love this. Perfect size, easy to set up, lightweight for the size. The apps were easy to set up, the sound quality is also great, we didn't even need our sound bar honestly. Would buy again." Another user mentioned the ease of setup. "The TV quality is great but it sells me on the extremely easy setup and the voice commands! You won't regret this purchase!"
While the features are the same across the board, the 65- and 75-inch models add Dolby Vision to the mix, a technology that promises a more "cinematic" experience. (That's code for "even better picture.") Of course, bigger is always better, so opting for the larger screen is a great choice — and comes with a bigger discount.

TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew was grilled for around four-and-a-half hours by a bipartisan US Congress on 23 March amid increasing calls for a ban on the platform in the US over concerns about the Chinese government’s influence on the company. Chew was called to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about TikTok’s “consumer privacy and data security practices, the platforms’ impact on kids, and their relationship with the Chinese Communist Party.” Members of both the Democratic Party
STORY: North Korea says it has successfully tested a nuclear-capable undersea attack drone, designed to create massive radioactive waves when detonated below the surface, hitting fleets of enemy ships or coastal areas.It's dubbed the "Haeil," or tsunami in Korean. These images from North Korea's state-run media show leader Kim Jong Un standing next to a large torpedo-like object, which it didn't identify, and the object exploding underwater. But how capable could such a weapon be?Kim Dong Yub is with the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, South Korea."The distance makes it capable of attacking almost any port in South Korea where the U.S. army is located even if it is launched from any port in North Korea. But it’s not just that. The North said it could be carried by ships. If it’s carried by a ship camouflaged as a merchant ship, it can hit Japan’s Yokosuka port, where the U.S. army is at or even further, like Guam, which is very worrisome.”“It’s conventional, but it’s very hard to detect. Also, it is highly likely not to make big noises. North Korea had planned this 11 years ago and conducted secret tests for about 50 times over two years.""I would say the weapon system should be pretty solid.”North Korea made the announcement as South Korea and the U.S. conducted joint military drills in the region.The North says it did not use a nuclear payload in the drone test and a U.S. official, speaking anonymously to Reuters, said there was no indication of one.It's not clear if North Korea has fully developed the kind of miniaturized nuclear warhead needed to fit its smaller weapons.Regardless, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the Washington D.C. think tank, has said the concept of the Haeil is similar to Russia's Poseidon nuclear torpedo, which both American and Russian officials have described as an emerging class of weapon that can render coastal cities uninhabitable.And, according to the think tank, the Haeil demonstrates that Pyongyang wants to show off an increasingly diverse range of nuclear threats to its enemies.A South Korean military official said they were analyzing the North's claims.
