David Becker/WireImage Scott Disick arrives at 1 OAK Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel & Casino on Feb. 21 in Las Vegas, Nev. It seems Lord Disick is struggling to sell his family’s castle. Hard-partying reality star Scott Disick, who put his late parents’ Suffolk County house on the market for $ 799,000 in early 2015, has steadily lowered the listing price by more than $ 250,000, real estate records show. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom Baiting Hollow home is currently going for $ 545,000, according to multiple listings for the one-acre property. Its initial selling price, which Newsday reported at $ 799,000, dropped to $ 779,000 in April, $ 699,000 in May, $ 599,000 in June and later $ 549,000 in July and September, according to Zillow records.

Jeff Bachner/for New York Daily News The owner of the beloved Park Slope pie and pasta joint Franny’s says Obamacare is forcing her to tack on 3% to all checks to offset the cost of federally mandated insurance for her employees. President Obama is being blamed for the rising price of Brooklyn pizza. The owner of the beloved Park Slope pie and pasta joint Franny’s says the President’s signature health care law is forcing her to tack on 3% to all checks to offset the $ 200,000 cost of federally mandated insurance for her 50-plus employees. “This is a cost that we cannot absorb without going out of business,” owner Francine Stephens tells the Daily News. “We’re quite sensitive to raising prices too much so we wanted to offer transparency,” she adds. frannysbrooklyn.com Franny's restaurant
Share This article Earlier this year, Nvidia recalled its Shield Tablet over problems with the lithium-ion battery. The company has put the tablet back on sale and given the base model a whopping price cut, from $ 299 to $ 199 for the 16GB flavor. At that price, the Shield Tablet is a steal, considering its overall performance, build quality, and features. Even better, this new version seems to fix the nagging touch-screen issues that were widely reported on Shield 1.0. While I didn’t review the first Shield Tablet for ExtremeTech, I do own one, and the touch screen has always been a little dodgy. It works perfectly in the desktop or in-browser, but often had trouble picking up multi-touches in the one Android game I play on a regular basis — Castle Clash. This was an issue unique t
Share This article Updated on October 8th: Finally, Sony has confirmed that the price of the 500GB PS4 bundles will drop to just $ 349.99 starting on Friday the 9th. And if you’re interested in a 1TB model, you’ll now only have to pay $ 429.99. The original story follows below. If you’ve been holding off on buying a PS4 until the price drops, I’ve got some good news. If leaked online listings are to be believed, Sony plans on dropping the MSRP of the PS4 from $ 399.99 to just $ 349.99 — a 12.5% discount. And considering that this generation has seen the return of the pack-in game, this is an excellent price point for the upcoming holiday season. Over the weekend, our sister site IGN pointed out that the Target website proclaimed a “$ 50 price drop on the PS4” in large bold text.
Share This article If you’ve been waiting to jump on the 3DS handheld bandwagon, August 30 is the day to watch. Nintendo has stated that it will cut the price of its budget 3DS gaming platform, the so-called 2DS, to just $ 100. Retailers have offered the device for this price before, but only as part of temporary promotions. The price cut, from an original $ 130, is significant, especially since the handheld will still come bundled with Mario Kart 7. The 2DS is the two-year-old counterpart to Nintendo’s 3DS and is fully compatible with games that do not require the confusingly named “New 3DS.” The only changes are to the form factor and the audio (the 2DS has a single mono speaker as compared to the stereo speakers on the 3DS). Reviews of the slate design have been mixed; Nintendo c
Share This article E3 is right around the corner now, so countless leaks and rumors are starting to pop up in the world of gaming. It’s unlikely that we’ll see any major hardware announcements in LA this year, but a new iteration of the PS4 has just been confirmed by FCC certifications. This refresh looks like it only contains small changes, but it might actually be the first hint of a PS4 price drop. Earlier this week, the FCC posted numerous documents relating to a new revision of the PS4. By far, the biggest news is the existence of a new 1TB model. In addition, the PSU is now rated for a lower wattage and amperage, and it weighs about half a pound less. This clearly points to a smaller, more efficient iteration on the existing internals. Of course, lower power consumption isn’t g
