How to use the Shop feature on Instagram to buy products

If you are a frequent Instagram user, chances are you may have noticed some posts in your feed with a small shopping bag icon, tucked in the lower left-hand corner.  This is Instagram’s Shop feature, which includes products offered by hundreds of brands and retailers across the world — and it’s a wise investment from the social media platform.   Analysts told Business Insider that Instagram’s move to shopping will be so successful that it will generate $10 billion in revenue by 2021. Using the Shop feature is easy, too. Any post with a shopping bag icon has a product or products linked to it — just tap on the product name, and you’re taken to the description page where you can save it for later, or buy it now.  Some products are available to purchase without even leaving the app, while others take you to the retailer’s website to finalize the transaction.  Some retailers partner with Instagram to provide a check-out process within the app. Most of those retailers are featured on Instagram’s @shop account.  Instagram’s @shop account features many retailers that have items available for purchase on the app. Meira Gebel/Business Insider 2....

We compared affordable, full-featured AV receivers from Denon, Onkyo, Sony and Yamaha. Which one wins?

We compared affordable, full-featured AV receivers from Denon, Onkyo, Sony and Yamaha. Which one wins? Want to find the best AV receiver under $500? I’ve recently tested some of the most popular big black boxes from the major brands, and the feature sets  and performance levels are impeccably high in this middling price range. From Dolby Atmos to Wi-Fi music streaming to voice control, these models have everything a home theater enthusiast will need and enjoy. Of the receivers I’ve reviewed recently, the Onkyo TX-NR585 is my favorite. The sound offers a good cinematic experience with dynamic range (especially when paired with quality speakers); it looks great; and it offers plenty of up-to-date features.  It’s a 2018 product but still perfectly modern, and now that 2019 receivers are starting to appear, the Onkyo has come down to an affordable $300. At that price it’s an absolute steal.  Runners up include the Sony STR-DN1080 and Denon AVR-S740H, from 2017 and 2018, respectively. I rated all of three “excellent,” with just a little daylight (two-tenths of a point) separating their overall CNET ratings. Prices fluctuate regularly, so if one bra...
