Blackmagic Design has unveiled DaVinci Resolve 16 with a brand new "cut" page aimed at YouTubers and others who need to work quickly.

A new light makes all the difference for late-night reading.Amazon Kindle review (2019)

According to Chris Velazco, "there's a good case to be made for the All New Kindle being the best choice for most people. It's small, comfortable to hold, easy to read and now it's also bedside ready." Of course, the Paperwhite has a flush higher-resolution screen, more storage options and is waterproof.

Activated.Tesla's Sentry Mode has already caught a suspected thief

San Francisco-based Jed Franklin received an alert on his phone informing him that his Tesla Model 3's Sentry Mode had been activated.

It gets the job done.What we're buying: Google's discontinued Chromecast Audio

In this week's IRL, Senior Editor Terrence O'Brien sings the praises of Chromecast Audio, which Google killed off in January. But that doesn't mean he's giving up on it. On the contrary, it's now more precious to him than ever.

The freshly announced Nighthawk AX4 comes in yet another spaceship-like design and offers dual-band four-stream WiFi with up to 600 + 2400Mbps speeds -- a generous 3Gbps in total. These are handled by the AX4's dual-core processor plus Intel's WAV600 WiFi chipset, with the latter being notable as Intel's first foray into the WiFi 6 router market.

Another moonshot turns into a real company.Alphabet's Wing launches drone delivery service in Australia

After months of testing, Alphabet's Wing division is launching a drone delivery service in Australia. It will cover roughly 100 homes in the suburbs of Crace, Palmerston and Franklin, just outside the capital city of Canberra.

Same old, same old.LG G8 ThinQ review: A wasted opportunity

LG's new G8 ThinQ packs the performance you'd expect from a modern flagship phone and, as usual, it's a great option for people who care about smartphone sound quality. Beyond that, there's little here to set it apart from this year's early crowd of premium devices, aside from a clever time-of-flight sensor that powers ambitious features that don't actually work very well.
