While Google has recently announced its Google Home Mini and Google Home Max (the latter available only in the US for now), Amazon still has more devices.

Best SSDs 2017/2018: Solid State Drives

Your buying guide for the best SSDs in 2017 Solid-state storage is standard-issue for storing data in tablets and smartphones, where it’s relied upon for its tiny size and rugged nature. Those same virtues can be handy in desktop PCs and especially laptops too, but it’s the speed of an SSD (solid-state drive) compared to a traditional hard drive which is the biggest reason to upgrade. This speed factor is about so much more than go-faster bragging rights though. Old-school…
