It’s so obvious that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the go-to game for Nintendo Switch players that for a while, the Switch version of the game was outselling the console itself. Still, this game isn’t just one of the best exclusive games on the console, it’s a console seller all on its own. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet (maybe you were waiting for more exclusive games to come down the pipe), this should still be the first one you crack open when you pick up a Switch.
While iPads are still a way off replacing computers for everyone, they are incredibly capable devices. With the right accessories, you can turn them into a really powerful part of your workflow. Here’s our favorite picks for enhanced productivity.
Amazon Key is the company’s program to let itself into your house. The idea is that you install a smart lock in your home, then let Amazon open it to deliver packages, or send in cleaning people and what have you. Now, they want to extend this access to your car. A new subset of the Amazon Key program would let delivery drivers put stuff in the trunk of your car where it can stay safe.
Before you start worrying that Amazon is going to give every delivery driver full access to your car, there are several caveats. So many that it basically rules out just about everyone:
You must have a newer GM or Volvo car, from 2015 or later. The tech in these cars will allow Amazon to unlock it remotely.
You’ll need to have an active OnStar or Call (for Volvo owners) account.
The packages you order cannot be any of the following: heavier than 50 pounds, larger than 26 x 21 x 16, cost more than $1,300, be sold by a third-party, or require a signature to deliver.
Your car must be within a certain radius of your work or home address and accessible. Parking lots and garages are fine, but some gated parking may not be deliverable.
That is a lot of fine print, and it also assumes you’re comfortable letting a delivery driver into your car. Currently the program is in a trial phase, so it will likely expand to more vehicles in the future, if Amazon decides it’s worthwhile. For now, it’s one more of Amazon’s experiments to see how far into your personal space they can push in exchange for easier, safer delivery of cheap stuff from the internet.
If you’ve ever watched a Twitch stream, walked into a computer store, or have a really die-hard PC gamer friend, you’ve probably seen these ridiculous “racing” gaming chairs. No, I don’t know why a chair designed for PC gaming is also a “racing” chair, but I do know this is the most comfortable chair I’ve used at home in a long, long time.
Getting your first toolkit is a rite of passage when you become an adult. However, most standard home toolkits don’t come with the kind of specialty pieces you need when you want to repair modern electronics. For that, the iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit has virtually every tool you’ll ever need.
The overwhelming majority of smartphone screens are anywhere from 5″ to 6″. In engineering parlance this is “pretty friggin’ huge.” If you have smaller hands, the best phone for you might still be too big. The iRing can help you get a grip on your unwieldy device.
