Sony Pulse 3D Wireless Headset

PS5 Pulse 3D HeadsetPS5 Pulse 3D Headset

There is without a doubt likely not going to be a better headset for the PS5 than the PULSE 3D wireless headset that comes straight from Sony. At least not right away. In time there may be, but for now this looks like a pretty comfortable headset, and it might be a much better design than Sony’s official PS4 wireless headsets.

You’ll also be assured that this will take advantage of all of the PS5’s 3D audio features to the fullest extent. It supports voice chat with friends and has a battery life of up to 12 hours. While the battery life leaves a little to be desired, it’s easy enough to charge it, and the design matches the console which is a big plus if you like your hardware to match.

You can also connect it up to the PSVR if you have one of those, meaning you don’t have to have a separate headset just for that.

While you may not always want to play with a headset on, there are sure to be times where

These Elf Babies Are the Most Adorable Elf on the Shelf Accessories

From House Beautiful

From advent calendars to Hallmark Christmas movies, there are plenty of fun ways to count down to Christmas. As the holiday season approaches, we advise you turn your attention to another festive way of celebrating the days leading up to December 25: Elf on the Shelf, the toy (and tradition) that’s been inescapable for the last few years. Whether you love or hate Santa’s magical scout elf, you might be more convinced of the former once you hear about these accessories to go with him: adorable elf babies.

If you’re not familiar with this divisive ritual, here’s the gist: Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas tradition based on a children’s book about an elf that comes to your home to see if your children are being naughty or nice. Every night the elf magically goes back to the North Pole to tell Santa about whether or not your kids have been good enough to make it on the nice list. Since the elf comes back to your home every day, he has to be put in a different spot every morning leading up to Christmas. The only rule for children is that they can’t touch their elf or else the magic might disappear.

Elf babies aren’t an official toy from the Elf on the Shelf store, though many are dressed in the red outfits that match the signature elf. Aside from being cute, elf babies are a practical addition to the tradition—one of the main complaints from parents who don’t like Elf on the Shelf is that they run out of ideas of where to place him every morning. One family went so far as to “accidentally” brake their elf’s leg so they wouldn’t have to come up with any more ideas.

But with elf babies, you can mix up and create more scenarios. They can hide with their parent (or parents) or find their own spots throughout your home. You can even change the rules for elf babies and allow your children to touch them, which they’ll likely want to do. Did I mention that they’re cute? If you’d like expand your Elf on the Shelf family, you can choose from a variety of elf babies from sellers on Amazon and Etsy. From elf babies wearing colorful outfits to twin toddler elves in red and green, check out a few of our favorites below.

iPhone 12 MagSafe accessories: How Apple’s snappy new magnet feature works

iPhone 12 Pro silicone coral Magsafe charger

MagSafe centers a compatible charger on new iPhones using an array of magnets.


This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple’s four new iPhone 12 models — two of which, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, are available to buy now — come with 5G, better cameras and the return of a beloved Apple MacBook feature: the MagSafe charger. We’ve now reviewed the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro and can explain how the phones (which are excellent) use magnets to attach a wireless charger. 

There’s also a potentially limitless number of magnetic accessories that snap onto the back of the phone, such as cases, docks, mounts and even a wallet. In fact, the MagSafe accessories are one of the iPhone 12’s best features. 

By embracing a snap-on ethos that’s failed other phone-makers (more on that below), the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max represent a bold new direction for Apple and a new way for iPhone owners to use their phones. 

Here’s a look at what Apple says MagSafe does, how it works and how you might use it once you upgrade. And here’s why MagSafe is Apple’s sleeper feature that’s bigger than you think.

Apple boosts iPhone 12 with MagSafe tech for better wireless…


How does MagSafe work on iPhone 12?

The new iPhone 12 devices are embedded with what Apple describes as “an array of magnets” (Apple says they’re recycled) around a centered charging coil that can pull up to 15 watts of power — twice as powerful as wireless charging on previous iPhones (but on par with phones from other brands). 

When you bring the charging end of the power cord close to the iPhone’s back, those magnets will pull it into place. The same goes for other MagSafe accessories and, depending what you’re clipping on, your iPhone will display a brief animation related to the accessory to confirm that it’s locked on.

Will iPhone 12 come with a MagSafe charging cable?

No, Apple will include only a USB-C-to-Lightning cable (and no power brick or earbuds) in the box with new iPhones. Apple’s two MagSafe charging cables — one standalone and another that also charges an Apple Watch — will be sold separately, but Apple confirmed that at least one other manufacturer, Belkin, will be selling MagSafe-compatible charging cables as well.

How much will Apple’s MagSafe accessories cost and when will they go on sale?

The standalone MagSafe iPhone charger is available for preorder for $39, with shipping listed as two to three weeks. Clear and silicone cases cost $49 with shipping in 7 to 10 business
