Huru’s new backpack is spacious enough for your many, many gadgets

I salute those of you who can, but I’m not joining your fold (no pun intended) anytime soon. Kiev, Ukraine-based Huru’s third backpack — known as the A model — is roughly the same size as the first one (25L vs. 24L), but adds more pockets for organization, and strangely feels more compact, if that makes any sense.

You can save $250 right now on the 2019 MacBook Pro with upgraded storage at Costco
Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Costco is hosting a few “pre-pre-Holiday” deals, and it has shared some of its plans for the big shopping holiday that kicks off on Thanksgiving Day (November 28th) and continues through Black Friday (November 29th). Unlike some other retailers, Costco locations will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving in the US and opening up for business on Black Friday. However, it’ll be open for business via its online store around the clock. Below are the very best deals that you can get right now (assuming you already have a Costco membership, which is required to shop there) as well as the deals that we’re most looking forward to. We’ll be updating this post promptly as deals come and go. Computers The latest iteration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro (Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage; pictured above) is $250 off of its usual price. It’s $1,199 right now, which is $100 less than the base model with 128GB of storage costs. You should consider this model if you’ve been waiting on a deal for a MacBook Pro with a decent amount of storage. Apple’s 21.5-inch iMac (4K display, Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive, Radeon Pro 560X graphics) is down to $1,149 for Costco members right now. That makes it $300 off of the usual cost, and if you prefer macOS over Windows 10, this is a good deal on a capable desktop that has a crisp 4K display. Dell’s latest XPS 13 laptop (4K display, 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10710U CPU, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD storage) will be $1,399 starting on Thanksgiving Day. Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Home entertainment The Sonos Beam soundbar will be $70 off starting on Thanksgiving Day through Costco’s online store; it will be available in stores on Black Friday. Normally $399, this price cut down to $329 will be the biggest discount that we’ve seen yet by $20. Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel praised this soundbar in his review as a “great upgrade for TV sound” that’s “simple to set up and use.” It also can be synced with other Sonos Wi-Fi speakers to create a bigger sound. TCL’s excellent 65-inch 6-series 4K HDR TV with Roku software will be $599.99. This will be the most affordable price that we’ve seen for this model. So you know, it’s the 2018 model (the 2019 model is $799), but it’s still one of the better TVs that you can pick up this holiday season. The built-in Roku software outclasses what you’ll find in most competing smart TVs, and it’s compatible with Disney+ and Apple TV Plus without the need for extra equipment. Gaming Like most other retailers, Costco will be offering a nice discount on the Xbox One X. It will be $349 ($150 off), but unique to Costco is that the console comes bundled with an extra black wireless controller.

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments over the fate of 700,000 'Dreamers'. Here's everything you need to know about the DACA program hanging in limbo.
Reuters/Lucy Nicholson The Supreme Court is hearing arguments Tuesday over the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which currently shields some 700,000 young unauthorized immigrants from deportation. President Donald Trump announced the program's termination in September 2017, but a number of lower courts kept the program intact while the case made its way up to the Supreme Court. Trump issued a bizarre tweet about the program on Tuesday, vowing to protect Dreamers if the court overturns the program, even as he falsely accused some DACA recipients of being "criminals." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments Tuesday on the fate of an Obama-era policy protecting some 700,000 young, unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers" from deportation. The program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, has been in limbo for more than two years after President Donald Trump announced its termination in September 2017. Since then, DACA has been wrapped up in a complex legal battle involving several lower courts that have ruled to keep much of the program intact until the Supreme Court could make a final decision. During this time, Dreamers have been able to renew their two-year DACA statuses, but no new immigrants were allowed to join the program if they were not previously protected. The case is set to be one of the most significant the Supreme Court will hear this year, and the decision is expected to fall along typical partisan lines, with the court's Democratic appointees voting to preserve the program, most of the Republican appointees voting to dismantle it, and Chief Justice John Roberts acting as a potential swing vote. Trump issued a bizarre tweet about the program on Tuesday, vowing to protect Dreamers if the court overturns the program, even as he falsely accused some DACA recipients of being "criminals." Immigrants with criminal records are barred from the program. "Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from 'angels.' Some are very tough, hardened criminals," he tweeted. "President Obama said he had no legal right to sign order, but would anyway. If Supreme Court remedies with overturn, a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay!" Here's what you need to know about DACA.What is DACA? Reuters/Mike Blake The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program shields from deportation roughly 690,000 young unauthorized immigrants by providing two-year, renewable permits. The Obama administration implemented DACA in 2012, after several attempts to legislate a permanent solution for Dreamers failed in Congress. DACA does not grant immigrants a legal status in the US. It lets them work legally and protects them from deportation so long as they aren't convicted of major crimes. Applicants to the program were only accepted if they were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012. They had to have moved to the US before they turned 16 years old, and lived in the US continuously since 2007. They were also required to have graduated high school or obtained a GED, or completed prior military service, and to not have any prior felony or serious misdemeanor convictions. The Trump administration announced September 5, 2017 that it would wind down the program, calling it an act of executive overreach by the Obama administration and declaring it unconstitutional. What arguments will the Supreme Court hear? MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images Unlike much of the political debate around DACA — which largely focuses on whether the Obama administration had the authority to create such a program — the debate playing out in the Supreme Court revolves largely around whether the Trump administration demonstrated adequate legal reasoning in ending it. The Trump administration had argued that DACA was unconstitutional and that it would not hold up in the courts, since a number of conservative states had threatened to sue over the program. But a number of lower courts have since ruled that the Trump administration's legal reasoning did not justify ending DACA. For instance, had Trump simply ended the program as a matter of policy preference, his decision would likely have withstood lawsuits. But since the administration opted for a specific legal argument, the lower courts ruled that its reasoning was too weak.
