Welcome to Monday morning! CES detour. While we planned to send a small team of Engadget employees to Las Vegas to cover the show in person, Omicron appeared on the horizon, and our plans changed very well.
We also decided, under those circumstances, to do our own thing for the annual CES Awards. Our favorites run the gamut from familiar categories such as mobile phones, television and wearables, to sustainability innovations, wildcarding and transportation technology. Did we miss something?

Just don’t expect a drastic redesign.
BloombergMark Gorman claims that Apple is expected to introduce the third generation of the iPhone SE this spring with a hypothetical presentation “likely” that will happen in March or April. As we’ve already heard before, Gorman says the new SE will stick with the iPhone 8 era design but add 5G and a new processor, bringing it closer in par with existing iPhones. We last saw the iPhone SE in 2020, running on the A13 Bionic.
It’s not the first time a Y2K bug has sent Honda and Acura cars past.
Since the beginning of the year, Honda forums have been inundated with reports of people complaining about having stopped watches and calendars in their cars in 2002. It affected Honda and Acura models with GPS navigation systems manufactured between 2004 and 2012, with reports of people who encountered the problem in the US and UK and Canada. Furthermore, there does not appear to be a solution at the moment. Every time someone starts their car, the clock is reset – even if they manually set it beforehand.
Faster processors, updated button layout, and longer power cables.
IKEA and Sonos have released a second-generation version of the Symfonisk bookshelf speaker. There are no amazing changes here, but the update features a faster processor, more memory, and consumes less power when on standby. It also comes with a longer power cable.
However, given the new model next to its first-generation counterpart, the most obvious change is an updated button layout that brings the volume controls alongside one another. Pricing looks similar to the original in the Netherlands, but we’re still waiting to see if the update will make it to the US.
It will reportedly be backed by US dollars.
This is confirmed by PayPal Vice President for Crypto and Digital Bloomberg That the online payment provider “explores a stablecoin”. Jose Fernandez da Ponte added that the company will work closely with the relevant regulators if the project continues.
The company uses a strategy that is sometimes reserved for supercars.
Ford gives dealers the option to prevent customers from reselling Lightning for up to a year after purchase. As the document (which has since been withdrawn) revealed on the F-150 Gen 14 forums, a dealer can “seek injunctive relief” to prevent a transfer of ownership or even demand payment of “all value” resulting from the sale.
