Independence Day weekend is a good time to save on cookware and the ingredients you’ll cook in it, as well as the wine you’ll sip while cooking with your new cookware.

If you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you now have access to Xbox Cloud Gaming on a wider variety of platforms, including Android and iPhone. This streaming version of Xbox’s subscription gaming library still has plenty of kinks — you’ll need a high-speed connection, and prepare yourself for some control lag — but anyone looking to play serious games like Doom Eternal on their phone will appreciate real thumbsticks, triggers and buttons like those found on the Kishi. And now the Android version is still at its lowest price to date (a holdover from Prime Day).
