Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and while the ongoing pandemic continues to be a nuisance that is probably preventing you from making special plans this year, you can still pick up a nice gift for a mom in your life. One of those gifts ideas is a DJI Osmo Mobile 3 gimbal to stabilize footage recorded on a phone, whether mom likes to shoot in vertical or horizontal mode. These come in a special pre-wrapped Mother’s Day bundle right now directly from DJI for $139.

In addition to the gimbal (which usually costs around $120 by itself), you’ll get a bunch of goodies tossed in for a little extra, including a wrist strap, storage pouch, anti-slip pads, the Osmo Grip Tripod and an Osmo Carrying Case, a digital photo frame, and an 8GB SD card.

If your family owns a Roku TV (from TCL, Sharp, Insignia, or any other brand), a set of Roku Wireless Speakers can really elevate the sound performance. Normally $200, a two-pack is $150 for a limited time from Home Depot or directly through Roku. Keep in mind that each speaker needs to be plugged into a power outlet, but so long as they’re within close range of your TV, you can place or mount them wherever you please in the room. Additionally, they can serve as Bluetooth speakers.

An iPad is always a good gift, especially if you’re getting it for someone who wants to stay connected with social media and entertained with all of the popular streaming services. Apple’s latest version of the tablet has a Smart Connector port that lets you hook up a Smart Keyboard to get some typing done, too.

If you’re interested, it has been $80 off for over a week, and $250 for the 32GB model is a solid deal. Best Buy and Amazon have gone in and out of stock all week, so keep an eye out at both retailers to see who has the color you want. In the case of Best Buy, if online orders are backed up, the option to pick up your order curbside is there.

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.

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.
