Sonos launches mini soundbar Beam, ideal for living rooms

Sonos launches mini soundbar Beam, ideal for living rooms
For those who like to listen to their music clear and loud, American consumer electronics company Sonos has announced its Beam sound bar on June 6, 2018. The Beam is a new sound bar meant for the living room and has a smart speaker functionality that is similar to that of the Sonos One Speaker. The Beam was announced at an event in San Francisco, California and will begin shipping from July 17, 2018.

The pre-orders of the Beam has begun on the launch date and has been priced at $399. The new device from Sonos is like a sequel to the existing Playbar and Playbase soundbars but the new device is priced less in a smaller form factor. The beam is 25.6 inches long while compared to the Playbar which is 35.4 and the Playbase measures at 28.3. Talking about its external features it has rounded edges and a few external markings with a fabric coating that runs on the length of the device.

The touch controls on the top of the device allows to control volume, helps change tracks, pause and mute the internal microphones. The Beam is also minimum on the port stand point and the company says it has just one HDMI-ARC port as well as an Ethernet jack with the requisite power port. The HDMI-ARC allows compatible TVs to send audio straight to a connected soundbar with one, regardless the source of the sound. The ARC has been in the market since about a decade and many of the TVs that were released in the past few years support it.

The Beam comes with the Alexa digital assistant by Amazon and it is capable of performing all the smart things like starting up the music streams, answering a few questions of general knowledge, setting timers and more. The Sonos has also been promising support for the Google Assistant with Alexa, but the company did not give any details during the launch event.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Preview

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator.
Revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, the 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche between the Navigator SUV and the Nautilus crossover, as it revives a nameplate Lincoln hasn’t touched since the 2006 model year.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
