Zvox SoundBase 570
October 22, 2014
If you want to add quality sound to your HDTV, you have a few options. You can get a separate set of speakersto arrange around your screen and living room. You can get a soundbar to place in front your HDTV. Or you can get a speaker slab that serves as an unobtrusive stand for your screen while providing the power and clarity you need. The Zvox SoundBase 570 is one such slab, and while it's not quite as thin or invisible assome others we've seen,its sound quality more than makes up for it, earning our Editors' Choice award. The $399.99 speaker system puts out excellent audio for movies and music without the need of a separate subwoofer, and sports built-in Bluetooth on top of the usual wired inputs. It's a scaled-up, wireless-capable successor to the ZvoxSoundBase555, which itself was one of the first speaker slabs to come out.

Vizio M322i-B1
October 22, 2014
Small HDTVs don't have to boast small feature sets. Vizio's M-series of LED-backlit 1080p screens boast generous online services through Vizio Internet Apps Plus (VIA Plus) and well-designed and functional remotes. Unfortunately, for all of its features, the $299.99 32-inch M322i-B1 we tested doesn't satisfy where it counts: picture quality. It also doesn't present a very good deal; $300 might seem inexpensive for an HDTV, but for $330 you can pick up the 40-inch version of the Editors' Choice TCL FS4610R Roku TV which boasts a superior picture and just as much connectivity. Design Vizio's M322i HDTV has a thin, quarter-inch black plastic bezel surrounded by a silver-gray plastic band. Apart from the small silver-gray plastic tag with the Vizio logo protruding from the bottom right, the M322i's front is featureless.

Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2
October 22, 2014
Wacom's Intuos Creative Stylus 2 performs about as well as our previous Editors' Choices, the Adonit Jot Touchand Adobe's Ink and Slide combo. Yet, it's a little more comfortable, and it's not as easy to accidentally press the shortcut buttons, either, which are minor, but important factors to consider. For $40 less than the Jot Touch and $120 less than the Ink and Slide, combined with an impressive library of compatible apps, the Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is our new Editors' Choice for iPad styli. Design and Features Wacom's Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is a 5.6-inch stylus with a 0.4-inch diameter at its thinnest point at the top. It tapers down to about a 0.8-inch diameter at the grip, which makes it very comfortable to use. The top half of the stylus is made of a dark gray-colored plastic, while the bottom half is a slightly rubberized black plastic, with a chrome ring towards the tip to accent the design. At 0.7 ounces, it's exactly the same weight as Adonit's Jot Touch, but the Adonit is a bittop-heavy compared with the Wacom, which feels more balanced and adds to its comfort.

PULLMAN, Wash., Oct. 21 -- Washington State University issued the following news release: Years ago I purchased a headlamp - a small flashlight that straps around your head to light your way. It's useful because it leaves both your hands free as you work or walk. I used my headlamp during the dark half of the year to exercise my dog in pastures and an undeveloped No Man's Land on a steep hill near my house.
