Images of the future usually involve super tall buildings, shiny flying things, lasers and holograms. But the future isn’t all big and flashy, in fact, there’s a lot you’ll see less of. Like earbuds, for example.

Skip out on the usual online rabbit hole that ends up being Cyber Monday shopping — the Internet is vast, and your time is precious. That’s why we’ve already found a roundup of deals floating around on the web — and it’s not all big screen televisions or massagers (don’t worry): we’ve scoured and searched for the everyday carry itmes, software, VPNs and tools to keep you extra productive as you head into the new year.
Holiday shopping isn’t for everybody. For every credit card warrior who can’t wait to push away from the Thanksgiving table and hurdle toward a spot in the Black Friday lines, there’s a conscientious objector who just wishes Black Friday hysteria would go away.
Not long ago, the idea of wireless personal audio seemed downright futuristic. Now that it’s a reality, our expectations have caught up. We expect a set of Bluetooth earbuds to have a good mix of battery life, audio quality, and comfort.
The most impressive feature of Google’s new Pixel Buds might not be their audio quality. As demonstrated during the Pixel 2 event today, they work as a real-time translation tool when combined with one of Google’s new phones.
“With Pixel Buds, I can use real-time Google Translate to have a natural conversation in 40 languages,” Google hardware product manager Juston Payne said during the event. “We’re letting you connect with the world around you in a more natural way, by rethinking how a headphone should work, connecting it to cloud-based machine learning and giving you access with the touch of a finger.”

Sports-centric wireless headphone maker Jaybird is ready to make a run at AirPods.
The company just fired the starting gun for Jaybird Run, a set of totally wireless earbuds aimed at runners and other sports fanatics. They’re bigger than AirPods, and differ in significant ways. But for runners and other athletes, they could offer keen competition for Cupertino’s wireless earbuds.
At long last, Apple has revealed the latest addition to its iPhone family: iPhoneX. There’s plenty to be excited about: the processing power, the new capabilities in facial recognition and augmented reality. But before we get ahead of ourselves, we decided to round up some of the best iPhone related extras at the Cult of Mac Store. We’ve got a trio of extra long, MFi-certified Lightning cables, and a super powerful portable battery. Plus, we’ve got a set of top shelf wireless earbuds, and a comprehensive course in iOS coding.
