Best Buy Early Black Friday Deals Are Live Now: Cheap Games, 4K TVs, Headsets, And More

0 Comments

The wait is over–Amazon Prime Day 2020 is officially live, but you don’t have to be a Prime subscriber or even shop at Amazon to get amazing deals today. That’s because this has effectively become a precursor to Black Friday, and competing retailers are getting in on the action with steep discounts on games and tech this week. Best Buy is one of those retailers running a big anti-Prime Day sale of its own, and it made the biggest move we’ve ever seen to compete with Amazon by announcing its first Black Friday deals will go live this week.

Select deals from Best Buy’s Black Friday ad have gone live today, and they feature fantastic discounts on laptops, tablets, and 4K smart TVs along with Arcade1Up cabinets. Notably, you can buy a Samsung 70-inch 4K smart TV for $530, down from its usual $750–just in time for next-gen gaming. There’s not too much in the way of video game deals–the better prices are at Amazon today–but you can grab The Last of Us Part II for just $40.

The early Black Friday deals are live October 13 and 14, overlapping neatly with Prime Day, but this won’t be the last you see of Best Buy’s Black Friday sale. Best Buy plans to release its full Black Friday ad and offer even more deals later this month.

The retailer is also offering a Black Friday price guarantee this year. If you buy anything during the sale that gets an even better deal before November 28, you’ll be reimbursed the difference. The holiday return period for products has also been extended–anything you buy starting October 13 can be returned for a refund through January 16, 2021.

Early Mammals Acted More Like Reptiles, Says Study

KEY POINTS

  • Scientists said early mammals led a less active but much longer lives
  • They analyzed teeth fossils of earliest mammals, the Morganucodon and Kuehneotherium
  • The study suggested that mammals developed some characteristics like warm-bloodedness at a later period

The first mammals that roamed the Earth millions of years ago functioned and acted more like reptiles even with their already advanced body structures, a new study showed. 

The research, published in Nature Communications, suggested there might be an overlap between warm-bloodedness and cold-bloodedness as mammals evolved in the past. It may be noted that mammals are considered as warm-blooded animals while reptiles are cold-blooded. 

As part of the study, a team of paleontologists analyzed teeth fossils from two of the earliest mammals, the Morganucodon and Kuehneotherium, which lived alongside early dinosaurs nearly 200 million years ago. This was the first time researchers used powerful X-rays to examine ancient fossils.

The team scanned the fossilized cementum of the teeth fossils. The cementum is what attaches the teeth into the socket in the gum of mammals and it continues to grow throughout life.

The paleontologists studied the tree-like growth rings in the tooth sockets, which helped them understand the lifespan of the ancient mammals and how they evolved during the early Jurassic period. 

They found that although Morganucodon and Kuehneotherium had features similar to their modern counterparts, including bigger brains, they lived more like lizards.  

“They were otherwise quite mammal-like in their skeletons, skulls and teeth. They had specialized chewing teeth, relatively large brains and probably had hair, but their long lifespan shows they were living life at more of a reptilian pace than a mammalian one,” Dr. Elis Newham, lead author of the study and a research associate at the University of Bristol, said in a press release.
