eBay now has an ‘under $10’ section for bargain hunters, just like Amazon

Following in Amazon’s footsteps, eBay has just launched its own $10-and-under section featuring hundreds of categories and free shipping.

Yes, that super-low price tag means no bidding is necessary, leaving you to simply browse, choose, and order.

“Nothing beats the thrill of discovering amazing items at incredible prices,” eBay’s Bradford Shellhammer said. “With ‘Under $10,’ we’re making it fun and simple to shop eBay’s selection of new, affordable items.”

Of course, just how many “amazing” items you manage to find among all the listings really depends on your personal preferences, though with millions of products apparently available, we’re certain you’ll stumble across something to drop a few bucks on.

As with eBay’s regular site and others like it, you can browse the items in lots of different ways, such as “trending,” “price,” or “tech under $3,” and so on.

A quick dive into the gadgets uncovers a luminous lamp that’s also a wireless Bluetooth speaker (or is it a wireless Bluetooth speaker that’s also a luminous lamp?) for under five bucks, and a pair of AirPod-like wireless earbuds for under ten bucks (no, don’t expect the same build and sound quality as Apple’s $159 AirPods). You’ll also find plenty of video games and gaming accessories, as well as gadgets for the kitchen, and movies on DVD and BlueRay.

Essentially, if you enjoy online shopping as much as you enjoy tracking down a bargain, then eBay’s new section may well eat into some of your free time this weekend. Even better, you can shop safe in the knowledge that a single purchase won’t leave you bankrupt, unless, of course, you’re down to your last couple of bucks.

eBay’s launch of an under-$10 section comes just weeks after rival online marketplace Amazon did the very same thing. Selling a vast range of items, among them  clothes, scarves, hats, sunglasses, phone cases, tools, and toys, Amazon’s effort also offers free shipping to customers, whether or not they’re subscribed to Prime.

How to download YouTube videos on PC, iOS, Android, and Mac

If you're a YouTube fan like us, you might want to know what the most viewed YouTube videos are, and how to download YouTube videos.

Downloading a video from YouTube doesn’t seem like a big deal at first glance, but it comes with ethical concerns to consider, depending on the original post’s intent. As we've already mentioned, it's something Google definitely doesn't want you doing — it's a clear violation of YouTube's Terms of Service, but it's even more important to keep the original content creators in mind.

If you've been looking to do some shopping recently but haven't found the best time, you're in luck! Best Buy has just started an excellent weekend sale with many different products, but, to help save you some hassle, we've collected our 11 favorite deals from the bunch, ranging from robot vacuums to gaming laptops. So, without further ado, let's dive right in!
Shark ION Robot RV761 -- $143, was $260

If you're looking to dip your toes into robot vacuums without spending a lot, the Shark ION Robot RV761 falls within the Shark Ion 700 range and has a few nifty features, making it a good starting robot vacuum. For example, it has a triple brush mechanism that makes it great for picking up pet hair and does relatively well on carpeted flooring. It also has its own that allows you to schedule and control it to fit your schedule, and it comes with sensing technology that lets it avoid bumping into things. On the other hand, it doesn't have home mapping, which is great for the privacy-minded, but that does mean the occasional bump does happen. The Shark ION RV761 has about 90 minutes of battery life before it takes itself in for recharging.
