The majority of those sources like Netflix, Disney+, and HBO Max require upfront subscriptions, though they do offer free trials for a month or so. There is a growing trend, however, where smart TV platforms have started offering a free selection of "live" TV content, and it seems that Google is close to doing the same for its Chromecast and other Google TV devices as early as Fall this year.

Samsung 13-inch stretchable display turns 2D images into 3D surfaces

LG XBOOM 360 Bluetooth speaker masquerades as a bulky lantern

LG XBOOM 360 Bluetooth speaker masquerades as a bulky lantern

Ever since the Amazon Echo came out, cylindrical or conical wireless speakers have become en vogue, especially in the smart speaker market. Of course, that has also given rise to gimmicks and design quirks to give their products some character and make them stand out from the crowd. Not all those designs appeal to consumers, of course, and some just look almost out of place in any setting.
