There are many scenarios where the standard power supply will not cut it. For these cases, we often need a power supply unit which allows us to regulate and fine-tune the supply while at the same time keeping us safe from power surges and giving us time to react in case of a blackout. This is exactly what this power supply does, with its intuitive and easy-to use interface, it lets us adjust the power levels that it delivers until we get the values that we need. Yet, at the same time, it protects projects from electrical malfunctions.

Not much bigger than an iPad Mini, the Nintendo Switch is the device that is ushering fans back to Nintendo after their lukewarm response to the Wii U. Dubbed a hybrid console, the Switch is powerful enough to run through your television and clever enough to transform into a handheld device for gaming on the go.

LG kicked things off on Sunday with a TV from the realm of science fiction — a 65-inch 4K OLED display that rolls into a tube, like an upside down window shade. Imagine it at the foot of your four-poster bed or the end of your luxury bath. We can dream that this futuristic boob tube will hit the market soon, but LG hasn’t announced pricing or availability, let alone an explanation of how the thing actually works.

After 21 months in a Russian jail cell, Powers was freed in 1962 in exchange for a Soviet intelligence officer. This model of a U-2 was created by the CIA for Powers’ March 1962 testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Vinyl has seen a major renaissance in the last few years. In fact, a good number of contemporary artists have begun releasing their records on vinyl again.

It offers high-fidelity playback, reliable tech, and looks beautiful.
