This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now. This week saw the reviews of both the iPhone 8 and Apple TV4K. Overall, critics think the iPhone 8 is a solid device with a great camera, but most agree it's not a must-have upgrade coming from the 7. Also, wireless battery charging seems a bit slow. As for the 4k Apple TV, it's certainly one of the most impressive and capable video streamers out there. But it's expensive and it has most reviewers recommending other products in it's place. Nest introduced a series of new products focused on home security called Nest Secure. There's nest guard, which is a home based with a keypad that detects motion, which also works with Nest Detect motion sensors. And it can even attached to doors and windows. There is also a new outdoor camera called the Nest Cam IQ outdoor which is capable of recognising people like the indoor Nest Cam IQ. Nest also introduced a smart doorbell called the Nest Hello which is equipped with a camera, microphone, speaker and bluetooth.
