The long-awaited Lenovo Smart Clock will likely go on sale imminently

When the Lenovo Smart Clock was unveiled at CES in January, it was hard not to want one despite the $79.99 price tag.

North American smartphone market shows steepest decline ever

The smartphone market isn't what it used to be anymore.

Your Smart Display lets you control individual speaker volumes in a group

One of the joys of having a few smart speakers around the house is being able to play music in all the rooms simultaneously, in sync, and without a complicated wired setup. But controlling volume levels across the house isn't easy, especially when you're in the kitchen and you can hear the bedroom speaker blasting super loudly and drowning out everything else.
