Take $60 off a new pair of AirPods with a wireless charging case

  • Today's Dealmaster is headlined by a new low on Apple's AirPods and Qi wireless charging case combo, which is currently available for $140 on Amazon.
  • Further ReadingApple’s updated AirPods are here, cost $199 with new wireless charging caseWe've written about similar deals in the past, and in general, the AirPods remain one of the few wireless headphones that need little introduction.
  • The gist of things should sound familiar: there's a number of true wireless headphones that sound better and offer more robust features at this point—including Apple's own noise-cancelling AirPods Pro—but the base AirPods have become a phenomenon for being lightweight in the ear and wonderfully simple to pair and use with iOS devices.
  • If you're an iPhone owner that already makes use of a Qi wireless charger, this SKU becomes a better deal, since the case here usually retails for $65 on its own.

Rep. Louie Gohmert's daughter rebukes him for not wearing a mask before coronavirus diagnosis

  • His daughter's comments -- which her agent, Ryan Vaughn, confirmed to be authentic on Monday -- come after the Texas Republican tested positive for the virus last week, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to announce new rules requiring masks on the House floor and renewing a debate about access to testing for members of Congress and their staff.
  • Gohmert had been scheduled to fly aboard Air Force One on Wednesday with President Donald Trump to Midland, Texas, but he tested positive for coronavirus during a pre-flight screening at the White House, a person familiar with the situation told CNN.
  • Before his diagnosis, Gohmert had told CNN in June that he didn't wear a mask because he had been tested and he didn't yet have the virus.

Why Microsoft wants to buy TikTok

  • Multiple analysts have described the acquisition as a potential "coup" for Microsoft — an opportunity to scoop up one of the world's fastest growing social media platforms at a time when TikTok may be desperate to make a deal.
  • Ives said he estimates TikTok's valuation could reach $200 billion within just a few years "given the steep user and engagement trajectory of TikTok." DA Davidson analyst Rishi Jaluria agreed, saying TikTok has the potential to grow "exponentially," especially because social media use has exploded during the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Microsoft's $26 billion purchase of LinkedIn in 2016 was a "slam dunk" for the company, in part because the social media platform was allowed to retain significant independence, Jaluria said.
  • Microsoft has largely avoided the recent wave of regulatory scrutiny directed at its Big Tech peers, but that could change if it acquires a controversial social media app created in China with a massive user base.
