This is a user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing alternative to the bulky and often cumbersome phone holders. It is literally what it says it is: a magnetic phone holder. It is easy to install; just place it on the dash of the car and stick your phone on top. While it is a magnetic holder, the magnetic values are kept so low that it will not interfere with the circuitry of the phones themselves. This means that it is completely safe to use. It also works well with all phones, regardless of make and model, as long as it has metallic components to adhere to the mount.

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.

Flying a drone is a hobby that has grown in popularity over the years, and many uses have been found for these little marvels of engineering. This drone, on the other hand, manages to be a more versatile alternative to the ones currently on the market. In fact, it can fulfill multiple roles without any issue. The drone comes with an HD camera, which can take high-quality pictures at high altitudes, as well as shoot video scenes in places and at angles that regular cameras simply cannot reach. If the camera is taken off of the drone, it can then take on activities that are of a bit more leisurely nature, such as racing, aeronautical stunts, and even general flying just for fun.

Several European countries are moving towards an all-electric fleet, well ahead of the fossil-loving States. The Voitures Extravert Quintessenza Electric Porsche was created to ensure vintage Stuttgart releases don’t go the way of their engines. Instead of ripping apart otherwise functional cars, they salvage unusable 911s, stripping them to the bare frame before replacing their dino-drinking flat 6s with a powerful all-electric drive system. The result is a car that retains its classic appearance but is equipped for a post-petrol future.
Those chargers are handy if you need to use your phone while driving — to do that safely, you should look into a Bluetooth car kit. Something like the iClever Himbox HB01 is a cheap, convenient way to add Bluetooth functionality to your car, which in turn lets you wirelessly stream music, make hands-free calls, talk to assistants like Google Now or Siri, and the like. (Provided you have an aux-in port.) We’ve praised it before. If you’re mostly focusing on calls, though, a full-on speakerphone like the Jabra Freeway is big and bulky, but serves up clear and powerful sound.
Aside from running out of breath to inflate it, this waterproof cushion takes out all the work of taking a bath. You, too, can be highly entertained by your iPhone homescreen. The pillow also works just as well (if not better) out of the bath.
