- Best gift splurges under $250
By Cnet - Friday Nov 17, 2017
Sonos One Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5 The good: The Sonos One integrates full-fledged Alexa voice control, just like an Amazon Echo speaker but with better sound quality. It offers most of Alexa’s smart home controls and its far-field microphone performs similarly to an Echo. The One works seamlessly as part of a Sonos multiroom system, and can pair with another One for stereo sound. In 2018 Sonos will add Google Assistant, and Apple AirPlay 2 support is coming too. The bad: The One costs twice as much as the new Echo. It cannot form a stereo pair with an existing Sonos Play:1.

- M760i xDrive - BMW cloaks muscle car in a power suit
By Jeff Yip, Autos Correspondent - Friday Aug 4, 2017
Self-driving cars may have become a holy grail but BMW's powerfully decadent M760i xDrive thumbs its kidney grille at those who would cut the driver out of the loop.[...] there's no way a sane driver would trust that thrust to a mash-up of sensors, cameras and dynamic radar countermeasures.[...] nothing out of Detroit in the sixties or seventies ever came with direct fuel injection and a couple of turbochargers to feed a dozen cylinders.For this kind of coin, you'd better believe that BMW made sure hands-on drivers can run through the gears with the console-mounted shift lever or click the shift paddles on the steering wheel.Through the magic of this computing power (and some long nights put in by programmers) the BMW M760i is monitoring how the car is being driven, its location via the navigation system and even enlists the car's stereo camera.Far from being a one-dimensional performance beast, the M760i can be put in eco pro mode, which tailors accelerator settings and transmission shift points for maximum fuel efficiency.At the other extreme, toggling into sport-plus mode makes the steering tighter, the accelerator mapping bit friskier and the shift points dig in and gear changes mean business.The M760i xDrive also includes the newest generation of BMW's heads-up display, featuring a 75 percent larger projection area and crisper color graphics to show speed, speed limits, turn-by-turn instructions, messages, telephone and entertainment options.Images of roadside traffic signs captured by the M760i's speed limit info camera, along with their locations, can be uploaded anonymously to a BMW server, which then updates the mapping database.Though many will never get to use the M760i's 155-mph velocity (electronically limited), the 17-foot-long sedan's roomy cabin, replete with quilted seat panels, double-stitched seams, brushed metal speaker grilles and driver pedals that are minor works of art, is a fine consolation prize.
