Today’s best Labor day smartphone deals could save you up to $850 on a new flagship

The Labor Day sales may be known as a bastion of furniture and appliance deals for most, but there’s also plenty of excellent tech deals to be found, and, especially as we’ve found this year, including deals on top smartphones.

We’ve spotted a few prime Labor Day smartphone deals that we think might just be worthy of your attention – although fair warning, these offers may be expiring tonight, so get your wallets at the ready if you’re ready to commit and don’t want to let these deals slip through your fingers.

Why Do We Still Need More Software?

We need more software. Logically then, we need more software developers. Gartner predictions as noted on TechRepublic back in 2017 estimated a US shortage of up to 1 million software developers by 2020… and the Covid-19 pandemic won’t have done anything to help that shortfall. Even if that figure is off by half, that’s just the US – the rest of the world needs more software in equal proportion.

But this is not an analysis concerning software skills, recruitment or Human Capital Management (HCM), this is a question that attempts to understand the situation one step further back i.e. why do we need more software anyway?

Don’t we have enough apps by now? 

Taking a glance at the software industry fervor that typically exists in any one year

Strong Insider Buying Could Indicate a Bottom in These 3 Stocks

The stock markets are all about timing. Whether your investment strategy is bullish or bearish, what matters is making the right moves at the right time. This is the truth at the heart of the old Wall Street cliché that bulls and bears make money, while pigs get slaughtered. If you get greedy, and start chasing money, you’ll overlook the signs that tell you when to buy or sell. Smart investors will be looking for reliable signs that will indicate a stock’s likely movement. In volatile times like these, those signs are more necessary than ever. One signal that has been correlated with a stock’s future performance is insider activity. This makes sense. Insiders, the corporate officers charged with running a company and producing profitable results for shareholders, are privy to far more information than the average stock

AT&T CEO John Stankey said the company may offer cellphone plans subsidized by advertising, giving customers monthly discounts of $5 or $10 in exchange for ads on their phones. “I believe there’s a segment of our customer base where given a choice, they would take some load of advertising for a $5 or $10 reduction in their mobile bill,” Stankey said in an interview with Reuters yesterday. Stankey apparently didn’t offer details on what form the ads would take.

According to Reuters, Stankey said that AT&T’s ad-supported phone plans could be introduced in “a year or two.” AT&T is already doing back-end work in its targeted-advertising system that could increase the value of such plans to AT&T’s ad-sales business:

AT&T engineers are creating “unified customer identifiers,” Stankey said. Such technology would allow marketers to identify users across

3 “Strong Buy” Healthcare Stocks With Major Catalysts Approaching

It can happen in a New York minute. We are talking about the massive gains certain healthcare stocks are able to notch in what feels like a split second. Unlike names from other areas of the market, earnings results don’t paint the full picture. Rather, other factors like clinical trial data or regulatory decisions can be more useful in determining if a particular company is on the path to life-sustaining revenues. Therefore, any positive update can be the catalyst that sends shares blasting off towards outer space.These plays, however, aren’t without their risk. A disappointing outcome could also be the spark that ignites the flame, only launching shares in the opposite direction. This is what makes compelling healthcare stocks so difficult to spot, but the analysts can help.Using TipRanks’ database, we found three healthcare stocks getting love from the Street
