There aren’t many spanking-new deals to share today, but a few that we’ve shared over the past week are still up for grabs. If you haven’t checked them out yet or they passed you by the first time, they’re worth considering.

The OnePlus 7T is $499, which is $100 less than this 2019 flagship phone usually costs. For your money, you’ll get a phone with a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, a big OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of fast UFS 3.0 storage.

The seventh-generation iPad with 128GB of storage is $100 off at Amazon. This tablet usually costs $429, but you can get it today for $330 (the price that the 32GB version usually sells for). Amazon is the only retailer running this deal at the moment, and unless stock sells out, every color is eligible for the discount.

If you want an affordable set of wireless noise-canceling headphones that have a bold design, the Bose QC35 II in rose gold are $220 at B&H Photo. This model usually runs for $350, but the rose gold variant has been steeply discounted for the past few weeks.

Yesterday, we highlighted an exclusive deal that Wellbots is offering to Verge readers on the Mate X electric folding bike. Its starting price isn’t cheap at $1,999, but you can get $300 off with the offer code THEVERGEBIKE at checkout. My colleague Thomas Ricker enjoyed his time with the bike in his hands-on and its fat tires that stand up to various kinds of tricky terrain.

Table breaks before Apple Watch Ultra’s sapphire glass.

”It’s the most rugged and capable Apple Watch yet,” said Apple at the launch of the Apple Watch Ultra (read The Verge review here). YouTuber TechRax put that claim to the test with a series of drop, scratch, and hammer tests. Takeaways: the titanium case will scratch with enough abuse, and that flat sapphire front crystal is tough — tougher than the table which cracks before the Ultra fails — but not indestructible.

Rihanna’s headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Apple Music’s set to sponsor the Halftime Show next February, and it’s starting out strong with a performance from Rihanna. I honestly can’t remember which company sponsored the Halftime Show before Pepsi, so it’ll be nice to see how Apple handles the show for Super Bowl LVII.

Starlink is growing.

The Elon Musk-owned satellite internet service, which covers all seven continents including Antarctica, has now made over 1 million user terminals. Musk has big plans for the service, which he hopes to expand to cruise ships, planes, and even school buses.

Musk recently said he’ll sidestep sanctions to activate the service in Iran, where the government put restrictions on communications due to mass protests. He followed through on his promise to bring Starlink to Ukraine at the start of Russia’s invasion, so we’ll have to wait and see if he manages to bring the service to Iran as well.

We might not get another Apple event this year.

While Apple was initially expected to hold an event to launch its rumored M2-equipped Macs and iPads in October, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicts Apple will announce its new devices in a series of press releases, website updates, and media briefings instead.

I know that it probably takes a lot of work to put these polished events together, but if Apple does pass on it this year, I will kind of miss vibing to the livestream’s music and seeing all the new products get presented.

California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoes the state’s “BitLicense” law.

The bill, called the Digital Financial Assets Law, would establish a regulatory framework for companies that transact with cryptocurrency in the state, similar to New York’s BitLicense system. In a statement, Newsom says it’s “premature to lock a licensing structure” and that implementing such a program is a “costly undertaking:”

A more flexible approach is needed to ensure regulatory oversight can keep up with rapidly evolving technology and use cases, and is tailored with the proper tools to address trends and mitigate consumer harm.

Look at this Thing.

At its Tudum event today, Netflix showed off a new clip from the Tim Burton series Wednesday, which focused on a very important character: the sentient hand known as Thing. The full series starts streaming on November 23rd.

Get ready for some Netflix news.

At 1PM ET today Netflix is streaming its second annual Tudum event, where you can expect to hear news about and see trailers from its biggest franchises, including The Witcher and Bridgerton. I’ll be covering the event live alongside my colleague Charles Pulliam-Moore, and you can also watch along at the link below. There will be lots of expected names during the stream, but I have my fingers crossed for a new season of Hemlock Grove.
