In among the gaming laptops you’ll find its Prestige 15 series that turns MSI’s PC performance and display knowledge into a thin-and-light laptop made for content creators. The end result is a sleek, discreet laptop that, while maybe not as polished as competing models made for creators from Dell, HP and others, has what you’ll need to get your video, photo and graphics work done on the

Ikea’s voice-activated smart shades are the ones you’ve been waiting for

Maria J. Danford

The window on my home’s front door has no curtain or blind, which is something I’ve long wanted to fix since it looks straight out onto the street. There are plenty of basic options that will get the job done, but I’ve been holding out for something a little fancier — and preferably something that I can automate, or control with my voice.

  • Incredible value compared to competitors like Lutron, Somfy and Tilt.
  • Easy-to-use app covers all of the bases for smart control, grouping and

The TCL 10 Pro. 


Angela Lang/CNET

Even before the coronavirus pandemic disrupted the economy, many people shopping for a new phone were looking for options besides the priciest iPhones ($699 at Apple), Samsung Galaxy and OnePlus flagships. Recent launches of the new iPhone SE and similarly sized Galaxy A51 ($273 at Amazon) highlight this growing group of midtier devices that have some premium features but are still more affordable.

Vantrue OnDash N4 dash cam hands-on: Three-channel camera with great all-round vision Review

Maria J. Danford

The OnDash N4 dash cam from Vantrue is a good-hunting, unobtrusive digicam that data in-car and in-front views in the exact compact device with a rear digicam much too in the box.

Within the box, there is the dash cam, suction cup mount, car charging cable, and a USB-Type C cable. There is also a rear digicam and a sticky pad to deal with the digicam to the window. There is a rapid begin guidebook as nicely.  The user guide is in depth and nicely created, with a in-depth clarification of all the buttons, ports, and lights on the digicam.
