Amazon will offer a one-stop shopping hub on the CES showroom floor

ces 2016 live stream roundup trends
CES is a double-edged sword for tech journalists. It’s the largest consumer electronics trade show in the United States and one that constantly looms on the horizon like an ominous cloud filled with the promise of long hours and sleep-deprived nights. At the same time, it’s a space where we can gawk at remarkable innovations that will soon shape the future of the industry, redefining technology as a whole and paving the way for more advanced application as they do. That said, wouldn’t it also be nice if you could peruse and purchase all the show’s products in a single place?

This year, things are going to be a bit different. Amazon’s CES Showcase will feature a host of inventive products, from high-end audio components to the latest in home automation, all culled directly from its showroom floor. The showcase will essentially function as a central hub for all things 2016 CES-related, thus providing quick access to the latest product reveals, interviews, and video reviews featured on Digital Trends and a few other select publications.

It will also serve as the first place you’ll be able to pre-order many of the products shown throughout the week of January 6, and this will allow you to be the first to get your hands on that must-have gadget everyone is talking about before it officially goes on sale. Afterward, you’ll just have to wait like the rest of us …

Semrush Free Trial: Try the advanced online marketing tool
how to clean up your keywords and refresh seo strategy semrush logo feature image large

It takes a lot to run a business, let alone start one. There is so much more to establishing an online business than just registering a domain, making a website -- even with a Wix free trial -- and calling it a day. Potential customers must be made aware that your business exists, and for that to happen in the digital age, you need to make use of modern online marketing tools. That's a broad field, though, encompassing keyword research, search engine optimization, data analytics, and other elements that can be pretty technical (not to mention intimidating) to the uninitiated. Enter Semrush, one of the best online marketing suites that makes all that stuff easy -- but it's not free. Maybe you want to give it a try before signing up for a premium subscription? If that's the case and you are looking for a Semrush free trial, then you're in luck. Read on. We have all the details for you, below.

No W-2s? 2023 is the year of QuickBooks Online

For the average employed person, tax season is a relative breeze. Pop in some W-2 information and watch the refunds accumulate. At least that's what it seems like from the outside, for the increasing number of us who make money via freelancing, side hustles, and small businesses. For us, tax season can be a real headache and the endless forms for dozens of income streams can feel like a minefield.

What's worse is that guidance has never been so terrible. Established businesses have tax-prep procedures built up over the years and the resources to hire teams to get the nasty bits done, while millennials – and our younger, Gen Z friends – feel left in the dust. Doing a little Google Sheets data entry and praying that PayPal won't make any mistakes with their new reporting requirement is rough enough. Trying to put this information into unfeeling, computerized boxes that don't always match 1-to-1 with what you are wanting is enough to warrant full-on panic.

From QuickBooks to WordPress, there's an account for that. For entrepreneurs and business owners, it can pose a challenge. Using the same password for everything can save you a massive memory headache, but is the equivalent of putting all of your account eggs in one password basket. Or, you can make new passwords for everything and hope they stick in your mind for when you need them. Perhaps you can even jot them down in a notebook. But, with this approach, especially when you're talking about business credentials, you're always one mishap or stolen notebook away from a crisis.

Enter: The password manager.
