In the last few years, the smarthome accessory market has exploded. Now it’s possible for anyone to make their home more automated, efficient, and yes, smarter to add aftermarket accessories that remotely control or oversee their home’s temperature, energy efficiency, who’s in their home, who has access to their home, and more. Which brings us to the Friday Lock.
We’ve covered Elgato Eve products since they became available; these are add-on Smarthome accessories that allow you to automate and control your home remotely using the Eve app on your iPhone; they integrate seamlessly with Apple HomeKit. Their latest product is the Elgato Eve Degree, a tiny and elegant aluminum-cased indoor or outdoor temperature with humidity monitor.
Father’s Day is coming, and for many men, that means they’ll get a new tie, a bottle of cologne, or worse — socks. Instead of giving dad (or your husband) yet another predictable gift, why not surprise him with something out of the ordinary? I’m talking about one of the many available Man Crates gift boxes.
If you’re looking for a ruggedized Apple MFi certified iPhone Lightning or Type-C cable that offers fast data transfer, syncing, and charging, one that is designed to fit into virtually any case, you should check out the Syncwire UNBREAKcable Lightning and USB Type-C Cables.
It’s a personal choice whether you’d rather vape from a pen-style vaporizer or a sub-ohm style, but if you prefer a smoother vaping experience with more intense flavor and bigger vapor clouds, using a sub-ohm vape may be right for you. If that piques your interest, then you should check out the HAUS Craft Collection Sub-Ohm Vape Mod Kit.
One thing you can never have enough of is outlet space in your home or office, and for that, you can buy a power strip, or even better, a surge protector power strip. If you look on Amazon, you’ll see that there are tons of surge protector power strips available, but none are quite like the OneAdaptr STACK Modular Surge Protector series.
Several years ago, I reviewed the DaVinci Ascent Vaporizer. I found it to be extremely well made and easy to operate. The DaVinci IQ Precision Vaporizer is their newest offering; it’s all that the Ascent was and more. Sleek, easy to operate, solidly made, and now it can be controlled by a connected app.
Is the fantastic weather we are having (in Texas, anyway) getting you into the mood for summertime activities, sports, and outdoor parties? If so, then the Monster Superstar Ravebox Portable Speaker is ready to play. The Ravebox is waterproof, has 12-hours of battery life, and it’s powerful enough to handle all of your musical needs indoors or outside.
It might be easy to dismiss an organization system that keeps track of things you’ve stored as something someone with too much “stuff” would want, something someone who needs to explore the minimalistic lifestyle would need. But you don’t have to be a budding hoarder for the Bluelounge Quick Peek to help you keep track of “what’s in the box.”
If you’ve got a tablet or phone that uses USB Type-C, then you’ll be glad to know that the myCharge HubPlus C is out and ready to charge your new LG, Samsung, Huawei, BlackBerry, Pixel, or other devices that take Type-C. But if you have an older device, too, it’s okay; the HubPlus C has both Type-C and microUSB built-in.
Are you tired of smearing your phone or tablet screen with finger grease every time you tap on it? Do you usually have a ballpoint pen on you? If so, why not combine something you already always carry with something you’ll also enjoy using? Take a look at the Just Mobile AluPen Twist L or S; the ballpoint pen stylus.
When’s the last time you had to participate in a conference call? If that’s not something you do regularly, then you might think that there’s no reason for you to be interested in a review of the Jabra Speak 710 … but you’d be wrong.
If you’d asked me several years ago if I’d be recommending a BlackBerry phone in 2017, I probably would have laughed and said no. For years, BlackBerry has seemed one step away from death taking the physical QWERTY keyboard along with it. No one could be more surprised than me that I like and enjoy using the new BlackBerry KEYone.
Two years ago, I gave the V2 Pro vaporizer a try; today, I’ve got the new V2 Pro Series 3X Vaporizer in hand, and it’s an interesting upgrade. Designed for e-liquid but adaptable for loose leaf and wax, the Series 3X adds variable voltage and temperature settings for your vaping pleasure.
I’ll start this post by stating a simple, known fact: I am not a runner. I’m more of a jogger or a fast walker, but once I’ve started I’ll at least keep going — even if my speed isn’t going to win any medals. The Vi AI Personal Trainer aims to help me become a better and more consistent runner.
In a market that is full of options, you’ve got to offer something special if you’re going to come out with a new wireless portable speaker, especially if you want to attract the interest of people who are used to thinking of other brands. The V-MODA REMIX Bluetooth Speaker enters that market knowing full well what needs to be done.

What’s necessary to create a 360º video with true 3D sound? At the IFA Global Press conference, Dr. Andreas Sennheiser was there to explain the case for immersive sound when filming content (360º and regular) and to us and tell us about their new AMBEO Smart Headset.
For the past few years, I’ve been one of a select group of international journalists invited to the IFA Global Press Conference. A warm-up, if you will, for the yearly IFA convention held in Berlin, the press conference is a great time to check up on the current and future status of the global electronics market.
