How to set up your Surface Pen

After using the new Surface Pen for the last week, I agree with Microsoft that this pen is the “fastest on the planet.” The new Surface Pen responsiveness and speed make it a dream to use. I use the Surface Pen to take notes when I am in meetings in OneNote, and use it when I color using my favorite Windows 10 coloring app, Zen: Coloring Book for Adults. I am by no means an artist, but when I use the new Surface Pen, I feel like one.

Nest’s new camera is smart enough to know who’s who

The $299/£299 Nest Cam IQ looks a lot like last year’s Nest Cam Outdoor. In contrast to the very first camera, it has cute and curvy, all-white polycarbonate shell and a fancy, patented hinge that allows you to orientate the lens any way you want it. An LED notification ring now encircles the camera’s eye, glowing green when anyone is viewing the live stream and flashing blue if the watcher begins talking through it. Behind the glass-covered front is one of the biggest upgrades: A new, 8-megapixel sensor capable of capturing 4K, HDR video in a 130-degree field of view.
