The best home NAS is down to its lowest price for Black Friday

I ranked Synology's DiskStation DS220+ as the best home NAS because of its hardware, feature-set, and software. The DS220+ is a 2-bay enclosure with two drive bays that can hold 16TB of storage each, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and two USB 3.0 ports.

The NAS is powered by the Intel Celeron J4025, offering considerable upgrades over its predecessor when it comes to intensive tasks like Plex and office-related use cases. In short, if you're new to a home server or want a 2-bay enclosure to store your local media collection and back up photos and videos from your phones and cameras, you cannot go wrong with the DS220+.

The DS220+ retails for $300, but right now, it is on sale for $240, a $60 discount that brings the NAS down to its lowest price yet. This model only went on sale once before for Prime Day, and then it was sold out in a few hours, so if you've been waiting for this deal to go live, act now. You'll find the enclosure at most major retailers, and if you want to buy from Newegg, you'll need to use code BFFRDY38 to get it down to $240.

The DiskStation DS220+ is a 2-bay NAS enclosure that gives you everything you're looking for in a home server. It is ideal for backing up photos and videos from your connected devices, it does a great job as a Plex media server, and you get a wide array of software features that give it an added edge.

The differentiator for the DS220+ is the software; DSM 7.0 brings a fresh design and a slew of exciting new features, and it is the best software you'll find in this category. That alone makes the NAS worthy, and when you combine the fact that you can now pick it up for $240, the DS220+ is right up there as one of the best Black Friday NAS deals.

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
