If you own a Wyze Cam Pan, you’ve likely tried to find a good way to mount it. It’s not quite as easy to stick up as its little brother, the Wyze Cam, with its magnetic base and easy-to-move mount, but the Wyze Cam Pan features a 1/4-20 thread on the bottom for easy mounting. Well, Wyze now offers an official mounting solution for just $9.
Aside from authorized first party retailers like Amazon, Walmart and the like, as well as the LEGO store itself, BrickLink is one of the more well-known and trusted places to buy kits, minifigures and individual bricks.

NVMe SSDs have really upped the game when it comes to read and write speeds. What once was only a pipe dream is now a common reality. Apple uses PCIe SSDs in their Mac lineup, and NVMe is the closest non-Apple users can get to it. Last year, WD announced its Black lineup of NVMe SSD, but now the company is updating the line with the SN750.
These NVMe SSDs feature an all-new design and a more sleek look. Plus, you can even get the SN750 NVMe SSD with an optional heatsink to give passive cooling, allowing you to maintain optimal levels of performance.
If you look at Sonos and Ikea, the companies are quite different. While Sonos generally focused on higher-quality and higher-priced products, Ikea is known for its budget-friendly items. Last year, however, the two companies showed us a possible design for a budget speaker line. Now, Sonos and Ikea have confirmed that the Symfonisk line of smart speakers should be available in August.
The Symfonisk lineup of smart speakers will be built by Ikea but powered by Sonos, while being compatible with other speakers from the company. In a video outlined below, both Ikea and Sonos representatives spoke to what this line will represent: speakers built so you think about the sound, not how big the speaker is.

Sony has long been the king of the mirrorless camera industry. From the company’s highly-rated Alpha A7 line to the more budget-friendly prosumer a6xxx line, Sony has reigned king for the past few years. Now, the Sony just announced its a6400 camera with real-time eye autofocus and tracking, the “world’s fastest autofocus,” and even a flip-up screen, something we’ve yet to see on anything but Sony’s RX lineup of cameras.
The a6400 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor and the company’s acclaimed autofocusing technology. Pair that with the first flip-up touchscreen Sony has put on its mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, stellar 4K recording, and amazing autofocus, and the a6400 is going to be the camera to beat.

When it comes to taking photos or shooting video on your camera, generally speaking, an SD card will be your go-to storage method.

With Lexar’s 1TB SDXD card, that’s a worry of the past.

Microsoft’s Surface Studio is the king of Windows-based all-in-ones. In my book, Apple still rules the roost here, but the Surface Studio is a good competitor for artists who want to draw on their desktop. Now, Lenovo is entering the mix with its Yoga A940 all-in-one. Coming in at more than $1,000 below Microsoft’s Surface Studio price, this could become the go-to all-in-one for artists.
Lenovo didn’t skimp out on specs, either. The Yoga A940 should hold its own against both the Surface Studio and even some models of the iMac, though the iMac Pro still wins in the all-out power department. Lenovo’s Yoga A940 sports some very unique (and awesome) features, however, so keep reading to learn more.
