We assumed that the D5600 would be priced similarly to its predecessor, the D5500, and with Nikon finally delivering those pricing and release details today at CES, it turns out that we weren't far off the mark.

Sleep Number 360 tries to make the case for smarter beds

Sleep is perhaps both the most undervalued and, at the same time, overrated aspects of our biological lives.

At CES 2017, Sleep Number is aiming to change all that with the Sleep Number 360 smart bed that employs all sorts of sensors, temperature controls, and even IoT communication to give you the best sleep of your life.

OWC DEC is an inconspicuous dock for the 2016 MacBook Pro

OWC DEC is an inconspicuous dock for the 2016 MacBook Pro

Among the things the latest MacBook Pros have been criticized for, aside from the debatable battery life, is Apple’s abandonment of traditional ports and connectors in favor of going all out with Type C Thunderbolt 3, which are, in shape and compatibility, USB-C holes. Sure, there are dozens of hubs and extensions out there to remedy that, but those just mean yo have another thing to carry and potentially get lost. OWC, famous for their Mac upgrades and accessories, might have come up with a prettier solution: the OWC DEC. It is practically a storage and port expansion dock that looks like it’s actually part of the MacBook Pro itself.
