The new ink refill bottles are keyed so users can’t insert the wrong color ink bottle into the wrong…

Pioneer Electronics added the new MVH-2300NEX to its in-dash car digital media receiver lineup by performing a little subtraction. The $400 unit has the same 7-inch color display and music-streaming and car-monitoring features of the AVH-2300NEX, but is $100 cheaper since there’s no DVD player. The Apple CarPlay / Android Auto-compatible MVH-2300NEX supports navigation apps, back-up cameras, music streaming services like Pandora and Spotify and add-ons like the SiriusXM Vehicle Connect…

Spin Master celebrated the iconic drawing toy’s birthday by showing off two new versions—the Joystick and the Freestyle Drawing Pad with Stylus—next to one of the original units that sold for $2.99 on July 12, 1960.
