The Best LED Lightbulb for 2019: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
(On CRI and R9 values—)
“Geoff Goral told us that CRI as a metric has come under fire for measuring bulbs based on how well they portray pastel colors (instead of more saturated colors). Some bulbs now also list an R9 value, which indicates how well a bulb depicts red tones (making art, food, and people look better and less washed out).”

The Best Umbrella | The Wirecutter
"Last Updated: March 15, 2017
We’ve tested 16 more umbrellas against our current picks in recent blizzard/thunderstorm/snow conditions and have all-new recommendations. The Repel Easy Touch is our new top pick because it costs only a few dollars more than the Lewis N. Clark, but feels much sturdier. Our new runner-up pick to replace the discontinued REI Travel Umbrella is the AmazonBasics Automatic Travel Umbrella With Wind Vent. We still like our former top pick, the Lewis N. Clark Travel Umbrella, as an affordable alternative. It’s not quite as durable as the others, but can often be had for less than $15. Finally, we’re also adding a golf-style stick umbrella, the Totes Auto Open Wooden Stick Umbrella. You can read more about all our new picks, as well as other options we liked that didn’t quite make the cut, when we update our full review in early April."

Inner Vision for the Weekend of July 29, 2016 | The Wirecutter
"Kill Your Phone: Tech-savvy car thieves have been circumventing late-model auto security systems, intervening in the communication between your car and the passive keyless entry and start fobs (PKES, the kind of “smart” keys that don’t require you to press a button to get into your car) that are supposed to secure them conveniently and safely. All it takes is a laptop and a $17 amplifier. It’s happened a few times in my own Los Angeles neighborhood: Thieves accessing cars without leaving any signs of forced entry. If your car has a PKES system, one solution is to store your keys inside a giant Faraday cage: the refrigerator."

The Best Office Chair | The Wirecutter
"The Embody was not quite as immediately comfy as the Gesture, but after a few hours, the difference between the Gesture’s foam cushion and the Embody’s multipart mesh seat was noticeable. Whereas the Gesture’s foam seat pads your bottom in a fairly static way and responds only to broader shifts in your movement, the Embody truly accommodates every little shift and squirm of your tush, resulting in slightly more consistent comfort after long periods of sitting."
