DSLR-like image stabilization is built into the two 12MP rear cameras and, unlike Apple’s iPhones, the Note 8 has a headphone jack and a microSD slot for extra storage. But $930? On sale Sept. 15…

Epson’s EcoTank All-in-One Supertank inkjet printers have slimmed down. EcoTank printers like the $230 Expression ET-2750 have large internal tanks that come prefilled with up to two years’ worth of ink—no cartridges needed. Older @epsonamerica EcoTanks have a tank “bump” on the right but 2017 units hide the tanks and move the refill connections to the front. New ink refill bottles are keyed so users can’t insert the wrong color ink bottle into the wrong tank. CLICK THE PIC for more…

The $40 Kempler & Strauss X2 Wireless Surround Speakers are deceptively small, but boom out rich, powerful audio with deep bass. When tested, the surround effects were impressive.

The 150-watt PMPO (peak music power output) units run four hours per charge and come with a charging base. Seen at #ShowStoppersCES at #CES2018 in Las Vegas. CLICK THE PIC!

The bag honors former @Pinterest engineer Tracy Chou (@triketora).
