The battle between Sony’s PlayStation consoles and Microsoft’s Xbox series is hard-fought, but right now we think the PS4 Pro has the edge over the Xbox One S, thanks to a combination of good hardware, great games, and a generous online offering.
I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on my next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I was so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550

Apple has done it yet again: by launching a brand new generation of iPhones, this time in the form of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus that will see off the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Incidentally, the previous generation iPhones have now been given a price drop, so woe to those who could not wait for one more day before the iPhone 8’s release and picked up the previous generation handset. Just what kind of goodies can we expect from the new iPhones?

We’ve decided it’s best if we just get the largest, most monstrous hub on the market, because having more ports than we need is a much nicer problem than having to acquire a new hub every few months. This puppy has 24 ports. (And you thought our 16 port hub was crazy!) Connect up to 24 USB devices with lightning fast 480Mbps transfer speeds. You can power this hub either directly from your computer or from an AC outlet. This means you can recharge your digital camera, flipcam, mp3 player, cell phone, everything you want, anywhere there’s a wall socket. This top grade hub features automatic over-current protection for each port, hot swapping plug-and-play connection, and the ability to daisy chain up to 127 USB devices if you’re really crazy.

I’m not a huge gadget person but I LOVE the shower speaker I got on Amazon. It’s awesome for so much more than just the shower. I use it to play music in my room and also stick it to the window in my car! Money well spent. —ginababy417
iOttie is famous for car mounting solutions. One of its cool accessories for cars is Easy Flex 3 using the standard wireless charging technology with the tilt-back design of pivot ball point for 360 rotation and one touch locking feature.

Think about it — music and entertainment at your fingertips on a big 9.7-inch screen, and if you bought a 3G iPad, you can have navigation too. You can get iPad mounts for your console, windshield and even ones that mount across your empty passenger seat. Sitting in traffic won’t be as big a deal when you can watch Netflix movies right? And hey, you just might be able to rise above the traffic altogether as your body takes to the skies, once again via the windshield, this time because you got distracted watching Weekend At Bernies 2. $49 to $166.60 – RAM Mounts

Just about everyone has a smartphone these days, where it is not only our primary communications device, it also doubles up as a very useful and convenient digital camera as well as music playback device and note taking (audio or written) capabilities. Well, why not make sure the rest of your portab…
This model is only two-thirds the size of a traditional keyboard, measuring 11.3 × 5.0 × .5 inches, and it emphasizes comfort with its low-profile and matte finish keys that are clicky, but not too clicky. The biggest selling point here, outside of its smart design, is its insane six-month battery life, so you’ll likely never be without a charge. Another great thing about this keyboard is versatility: its Bluetooth connection means you could also pair it with other devices in your life, including other phones and computers that support Bluetooth keyboards.
With smartphone cameras continuing to take the place of dedicated cameras in our everyday world, adding extra capabilities to our devices is the next evolutionary step. The Olloclip Core Lens Set is an outstanding set of additional lenses that help take the already excellent iPhone camera and make it even better.

Anaheim’s National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) show featured plenty of traditional instruments, but as always, there was also a lot of cool music tech.

Meets latest military standard [MIL-STD 810G-516.7] for increased shockproof protection.
As a professional photographer, I normally don’t like add-on lenses. Adding extra glass in front of current glass usually degrades the quality of a photo. Also, I usually only use my phone for family snapshots or casual situations that do not call for pro gear, but with the iPhone 7 I will admit that the quality of photos has improved.
The story you must read before falling in love online: Constance, 60, is distraught after discovering the charming man she fell for on a dating site had stolen pictures of Steve, 46 – who’s married and gay
The first 8K (7,680×4,320-pixel) display, this 32-inch monitor crams in enough resolution to retouch the hairs off a model’s face and nudge your pixels precisely in Adobe Illustrator. It doesn’t match that by covering the entire Rec 2020 color space — it’s only 10-bit color, not 12-bit — and it’s not clear whether it stores the color profiles in hardware or not, but you can’t expect everything at once. For $5,000, though, Dell should throw in the calibrator for free.
Customize your workspace with ease with the WhiteFox Programmable Mechanical Keyboard. Totally compact, this keyboard gives you fully programmable keys to suit all of your needs. With open source software, the options for each key are endless.
Meaning manner, tune, measure, rhythm. Mode is how something is accomplished and in the case of the new Klipsch Mode M40 headphones, it’s beautifully mastered. In every sense of the word.

With or without batteries, the show will go on the entire plane ride, the entire commute or the entire album collection.
One of the top-selling selfie sticks, the Mpow Selfie Stick features a 270-degree adjustable head to capture the perfect shot no matter which way it’s angled. It has a 31.5-inch maximum length but folds up to a highly portable 7.1 inches, so it’s easy to throw in a backpack or purse (or even your pocket!). It also comes with an 18-month warranty in case it gets damaged.
So, these were just some of the highlights from this year’s NAMM. Yes, we also saw amazing new gear from the likes of Pioneer DJ, Roland, Alesis, Native Instruments, and more, but these two little corners of the show wound up being incredibly intriguing. Companies are not just thinking about how to make music and music-making easy to approach, but how to provide solutions for consumers that enhance the gear they already own and cherish. Most of the aforementioned products fell in the price range of a couple hundred — the The ONE Piano Hi-Lite is $229 and the Phase should retail for around $300 — and these slight investments can have much bigger payoffs for musicians.

Combine this with the desktop punching ball to level-up and gain +1 frustration relief. // Source
Facebook might talk the talk when it comes to building community, but Civ.works walks the walk. The ad-free social network was launched by Oracle executive George Polisner, who publicly resigned after the company’s co-CEO Safra Catz joined Trump’s transition team in December 2016. The platform, which launched in January 2017, is designed to collect civic actions at the local, state, national and international levels and distribute them to subscribers based on their issue preference and geography. The aim is to give the community tools to work together on societal outcomes important for everyone, regardless of the political “side”.
At CES, JVC, Kenwood, and Pioneer each unveiled wireless Android Auto compatible receivers. With wireless Android Auto support, you can hop in your car, start it up, and your phone and receiver will work as if there was a tethered connection between the two. Meaning Google Assistant, Waze, and all of your music will just be a few taps or voice commands away.
Batteries aren’t included or even necessary here. That’s because Razer’s new wireless gaming mouse pulls its power directly from its mousepad. So the new Mamba is a few ounces lighter than its predecessors, but it still has Chroma accent lights that you can control from your PC.
