Q&A: Do you prefer using a wired Ethernet connection or Wi-FI to access the Internet?

What to do if the gift you’re giving isn’t going to arrive on time

It's happened to all of us. Despite getting our gift buying done early, spending extra on shipping, or memorizing guaranteed delivery dates, sometimes an order just isn't going to show up on time—and you're left looking as poorly prepared as Santa after the fog rolls in on Rudolph's night off. The first step is? Don't panic. No matter whether your gift isn't showing up at the giftee's place in time for the holidays, or isn't getting to you in time to bring with you, there's probably nothing you can do about it (except to perhaps cancel the order, if it hasn't shipped yet). So take a deep breath, let it out slowly... and browse this list of options!

The Best Affordable Robot Vacuums of 2018

Though high-end robotic cleaners like the Dyson 360 Eye can cost close to $1,000, our tests show that a host of less-expensive—and sometimes lesser-known—models will clean your house nearly as well as pricier robot vacs. No robot vacuum will clean as well as a traditional canister or upright, but they can keep floors looking fresh between cleanings. To find the best, we rounded up the most popular robot vacuums that retail for less than $400 and spent a few weeks putting them through our robot vacuum obstacle course. While we did uncover a few robots to avoid at any cost, it turns out that the best low-cost vacuums—like the Eufy 11S —can stand sensor-to-sensor with their high-end cousins. Here are the best affordable robot vacuums we tested ranked, in order. Eufy Robovac 11S Neato Botvac D3 Connected iRobot Roomba 690 EcoVacs Deebot Ozmo 601 Bobsweep Bobi Pet
