Fidget spinners get a lot of hate. I think it’s in part because the name implies that the people who play with these things can’t control themselves, which isn’t the case. I can sit still as long as I want, but it’s kind of fun to have something in your hands you can fiddle with.
I don’t get to review mattresses often, but over the last few years there has been a big push into mattresses that use all sorts of high tech materials. The first company to step into the memory foam market that really made a name for itself was Tempurpedic, and back in the day I reviewed one of their first mattresses.
We’ve all been there at some point. You need to measure something and you stand there counting the little marks on your tape measure trying to figure out if its millimeters or centimeters or inches that you need.
When it comes to headphones, I am particular, but not necessarily about the audio quality. I’m not an audiophile, but I’m very critical about the way they fit. Most over-the-ear headphones that I’ve used have cushions too small to fit over my ears and they end up sitting on my ears.
I’ve had a crappy desk for as long as I can remember. It was too small, uncomfortable and wobbly. I worked on that same desk for nearly a decade, mostly because I didn’t think anything else would be better.
Unless you have a late model car with a factory heads-up display, the Navdy is definitely a device worth considering. It adds a heads-up display to any car, and is capable of displaying navigation and other useful information without you having to take your eyes off the road.
If you’re like me, your garage is filled with all kinds of stuff – tools, boxes, bikes, lawn equipment, and, oh yea, cars. One of the most annoying things about looking for stuff in there is that regular light bulbs don’t do a very good job illuminating the place.
If you find yourself outdoors a lot, you can often find yourself without the power you need to keep your gadgets charged up. If you’re looking for the ultimate way to ensure you never run out of juice, check out the Renogy Phoenix Generator.
These days, there are lots of ways you can add colorful light to your rooms, but most of them involve changing out standard lightbulbs with LED ones. If you’re looking for something that’s more of a cool accent light you can hang on your wall, you should definitely check out the Nanoleaf Aurora.
Everything is going connected today, from your appliances in the kitchen to the toothbrush you use in the bathroom. Philips sent me over their new Sonicare FlexCare Platinum Connected Toothbrush for me to try out. The version I have includes a UV cleaner to help keep germs at bay.
It’s not often that I get a chance to get my mitts on a product before it’s actually launched. Such was the case when the folks behind the Heacket reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try out one of their jackets.
The drone market is pretty jampacked these days, so it’s pretty tough to decide which one to buy. While there are some great high-end models for advanced flyers and aerial photographers, they have a tendency to cost $800 to $1000.
When I first came across a press release for Pyle’s “1000-watt” boombox, the Street Blaster X, I had my doubts that a battery-powered portable sound system could achieve such lofty numbers. Now that I’ve had a chance to go hands on (and ears on) with this gigantic Bluetooth speaker, I’m really torn.
