It would be easy to discount a portable speaker that comes with a built-in light show as a jack of all trades and a master of none, but in the case of the JBL Pulse 4, doing so would be a huge mistake. The Pulse 4 delivers 360º sound and an LED light show that can both soothe or enliven.
One of the new devices that caught my eye at CES this January was the Lenovo Smart Clock with Google Assistant. It wasn’t just that this particular smart display was sized similarly to a traditional bedside clock, it was that all of its features had been thoughtfully curated for bedroom use.

Sonos has become a leader in home audio for those who want great sound throughout their home.

You’d be forgiven for not knowing that the all-new 2019 Audi Q3 is actually Audi’s entry-level compact crossover SUV; after all, the Q3 is aggressively styled, attractive, and loaded with tech features first seen in the flagship Audi Q8.

If you’ve experienced the loss of someone close to you, then you will appreciate the mission at Everence; they allow you to create custom jewelry and even tattoos with the DNA (by cheek swab), hair, or the cremains of your loved one.
