$30 gets you a home security camera with motion detection and night vision

Home Security Cameras Amazon

Home security cameras have become very popular in recent years, and it’s pretty obvious why. For a relatively low price, you can have instant access to see what’s going on in your home from anywhere in the world. These devices stream live video to any iPhone, iPad or Android device, and most support high-definition resolution as well. But if they all offer similar features, why would you ever pay $150 or $200 for one when you can get the YI Home Camera Wireless IP Security Surveillance System for $30 shipped?

Hands-on: LG Apple-endorsed 5K Display – an UltraFine choice for MacBook Pro owners? [Video]

The LG 5K UltraFine Display is Apple’s answer to MacBook Pro customers who wish to connect their notebooks to an external display with a single cable. After reportedly getting out of the standalone monitor business, LG’s offerings, which are available in 4K and 5K varieties, might be the next best option.

The fact that you can connect a single Thunderbolt 3 cable from your MacBook to the LG UltraFine 5K Display is quite compelling. Not only will this provide display output, but it will also deliver the necessary power (up to 85W) to keep your MacBook Pro — 13- or 15-inch variety — charged.

We recently got our hands on the LG UltraFine 5K Display. Is it a good choice for MacBook Pro owners? Watch our hands-on video walkthrough inside to learn more. more…
