New & Noteworthy Releases

TIG-gear-patrol-Asus-AC2600Router


Asus Blue Cave Wireless Router
The most striking thing about Asus’s new wireless router — it has a hole in it. Announced last May, the AC2600 is a dual-band wireless router that’s meant to be shown off, not tucked behind a media console. Asus says that it’s capable of 4K UHD streaming. And it supports Amazon Alexa and IFTTT right from the get-go. You can control who can connect to it via an app on your phone, too. The design-focused router is finally available for purchase. — Tucker Bowe

TIG-gear-patrol-Lister-Thunder


666hp Lister Thunder
Lister, Britain’s longest running race car building company, got its hands on the Jaguar F-Type and massaged 666 horsepower out of the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 and called it the Thunder. From the 22-inch wheels and up, almost everything has been upgraded to help the modified F-Type get from 0-60mph in 2.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 208 mph. More importantly, what Lister is trying to do, starting with the Thunder, is build a similar relationship with Jaguar to what Brabus enjoys with Mercedes or Alpina does with BMW. — Bryan Campbell

Canon PowerShot G9 X Point-and-Shoot Camera
Save $130: The New York Times‘s gadget review site, Wirecutter, named the Canon PowerShot G9 X as the best sub-$500 compact point-and-shoot camera. Released back in 2015, the G9 X has a number of impressive features — a 1.0-inch high-sensitivity CMOS sensor, an f/2.0-4.9 lens, a DIGIC 6 image processor, built-in wifi and a touchscreen display — that many compact cameras in its price range lack. It’s an all-around great travel camera, plus it looks pretty cool in a vintage sort of way, and it’s now available at an all-time low price. The G9 X normally goes for $400 on Canon’s website. You can find it for $379 on Amazon, in both black and silver versions. The real coup, however, is if you use the promo code GFLASHDEAL on Canon’s website, you can snag the G9 X for $270 — that’s an extra $130 off. — Tucker Bowe
