OnePlus just held a press event and introduced a trio of new gadgets. Theres an upgraded tablet, new earbuds and a smartwatch. The OnePlus Pad 2 is a refresh of last years model, which we mostly enjoyed, so lets start there. The Pad 2 is an upgrade over the previous iteration in nearly every way. Theres a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and a 12.1-inch screen with 3K resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. The company also promises stronger audio output which is always nice, as the primary use for many tablets is consuming content. OnePlus even says that this sound system can emulate spatial audio. This tablet ships with a 9,510mAh battery that can be fully charged in just over 80 minutes and will operate on standby for up to 43 days. Preorders are available now and the tablet costs $550. Itll be widely available on July 30. OnePlus is also releasing a suite of accessories for the device, including a keyboard and stylus. OnePlus The OnePlus Watch 2R, as the name suggests, is a minor refresh of the just-released Watch 2. It has all of the features of its predecessor, including a maximum battery life of 100 hours, but it's both lighter in weight and cheaper. Its powered by the latest Wear OS and integrates with the companys health-monitoring app for fitness tracking. The Watch 2R is available for purchase right now and costs $230. Its available in both green and gray. OnePlus Finally, theres the OnePlus Nord Buds 3 Pro. These new earbuds offer improved noise cancellation, up to 49dB, over previous iterations. The buds also have something called Smart Noise Cancellation, which uses an algorithm to automatically reduce unwanted sounds in response to ambient noise. These earbuds include three microphones for calls, a transparency mode and an extra-large 12.4mm audio driver, which OnePlus says allows for deep bass. They are available now and cost $80.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/oneplus-just-unveiled-a-new-full-sized-tablet-with-some-decent-specs-140023477.html?src=rss

One of the questions I get asked the most is: What is the best affordable Android tablet? And while there aren't a lot of one-size-fits-all devices, if you just want a basic slate for shopping or browsing the news that can also double as a great shared device that lives in your living room, thanks to discounts for Amazon Prime Day, the 10.9-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE is an unquestionably good deal.  At $330, the Galaxy Tab S9 FE is even cheaper on Amazon than it is direct from Samsung, who has it listed for $50 more. But more importantly, while the Tab S9 FE was designed to be a streamlined version of the full-fat Galaxy Tab S9, it retains a lot of the features we like about its more expensive sibling. That includes things like built-in stylus support (and a bundled S Pen), a sturdy aluminum chassis and a bright, high refresh rate display. Granted, the FE's 90Hz LCD panel isn't quite as colorful or speedy as the 120Hz OLED screen on the standard Tab S9 and it has a slower Exynos 1380 processor. But when you consider that the FE costs almost one-third the price for Prime Day, those feel like pretty reasonable trade-offs.  Furthermore, Samsung's DeX mode gives you a dedicated desktop UI complete with a taskbar and multi-window support at the touch of a button. That means the Tab S9 FE can serve as a great portable productivity machine, especially when paired with one of Samsung's many keyboard accessories.  That said, potential buyers should know that one thing the Tab S9 FE doesn't excel at is hardcore gaming. That's because while it's more than speedy enough for casual titles like Stardew Valley or Candy Crush, graphics can become a bit stuttery when playing more demanding shooters like Call of Duty: Mobile. But if all you need is a versatile Android tablet for a good price, getting a Tab S9 FE for just $330 feels like a steal.  Your Prime Day Shopping Guide: See all of our Prime Day coverage.

A group of record labels that include Universal, Capitol, Warner and Sony has filed a lawsuit against Verizon, accusing it of "contributory and vicarious copyright infringement." Verizon "knowingly provides its high-speed service to a massive community of online pirates," the companies said in their complaint. Apparently, the plaintiffs have sent the internet provider "hundreds of thousands" of copyright infringement notices over the past few years, identifying subscribers who've been using Verizon's network to share copyrighted music via peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing networks.  Verizon, they said, acknowledged that it received their notices. The company allegedly chose to ignore them and continued to provide internet services to "thousands of known repeat infringers so it could continue to collect millions of dollars from them." Since it didn't terminate the accounts of the alleged copyright infringers, Verizon "obtained a direct financial benefit" from their "continuing infringing activity," the plaintiffs argued. The labels are asking for damages worth up to $150,000 for each work infringed. Based on the list posted by Ars Technica, 17,335 titles are involved in the case, which means Verizon could be fined for as much as $2.6 billion.  Back in 2018, music labels also sued Cox Communications for allegedly refusing to fully terminate the accounts of users who were pirating music. A US District Court jury originally sided with the labels and ordered Cox to pay $1 billion in damages. But earlier this year, an appeals court overturned the verdict and found that the provider didn't profit directly from its users' activities. A group of record labels also sued Charter Communications in 2021 over over song piracy and similarly accused the company of turning a "blind eye" to music piracy.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/verizon-faces-lawsuit-after-record-labels-say-it-profits-from-piracy-133047303.html?src=rss

Google's Pixel Watch 2 has a couple of interesting new features designed to help you manage your stress levels. If they sound like something you'd want to try, you can grab the smartwatch from Amazon at its lowest price yet, thanks to this year's Amazon Prime Day deals. The Pixel Watch 2 WiFi version is currently on sale for $270, $17 lower than its previous all-time low and $80 less than its full retail price of $350. Google designed this model's aluminum case to be lighter than its predecessor's and equipped it with a more powerful, power-efficient processor that should also prolong its battery life.  We praised the watch for its design, with its round shiny case, in our review. However, we did note that its crown sticks out more than we'd like, which makes it easy to trigger when you bend your hand backwards. In the health-related features department, Google gave the model a more advanced sensor to track your heart rate that's capable of giving you more accurate readings while exercising. The watch can also notify you to start (or stop) tracking certain activities, such as walking, running, rowing, outdoor biking and more, so you can have a more complete picture of your physical activities for the day.  Pixel Watch 2's new stress and body response sensors work by monitoring the changes in your sweat levels and your heart rate to determine how stressed you are. If the watch does determine that you're stressed, it'll notify you and ask you to log your feelings or to start a walk. The system didn't always work perfectly in our tests, but it's a welcome addition that could be improved in future updates. Your Prime Day Shopping Guide: See all of our Prime Day coverage.
