My husband likes to tease me because everywhere I go, I check in on the Foursquare Swarm app. Not only do I do it because it helps me remember what I was doing on any given day (which comes in much handier than you’d think), I also do it because Swarm has great giveaways and perks. Here’s the latest …
Of all the Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed, the Honeycomb Sound Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has to be the most unusual — in looks, anyway. The honeycomb body is made of ABS plastic (I thought it was aluminum at first) with iron speaker grilles; the design is beautiful, but how’s the sound?
It’s easy to get caught up purchasing only brands that you recognize or using price as an indication of quality when shopping for a Bluetooth speaker, but by doing that you lose out on a lot of really great options. One item that you might miss if you shop like that is the TimoLabs Corbett I S Waterproof Speaker.
This week I got a chance to try a new and exciting technology that was already present and built into several 2017 Audi models since June 1 but had just come online. V2I, or Vehicle to Infrastructure, Traffic Light Information is built into the Audi A4, Q7, and allroad models; the first city to offer it is Las Vegas, Nevada.
I’ve had the 12.9″ iPad Pro since it came out, and while there are things I absolutely love about using a larger tablet, lugging it around isn’t one of them. Add on a detachable keyboard or case, and it suddenly weighs as much or more than a Macbook. For portability and features, the Lenovo Yoga Book 2-in-1 is downright attractive.
Have an iPad Pro? If so, then you probably carry it with you almost all the time. But where do you stow its Pencil? And what do you do with the cable and charger? If you’ve been letting those things rattle around loose in your bag, then you’ll want to check out these beautiful and functional WaterField Atelier Leather Accessories.
If you’re struggling with what to get the guy who has everything, Dollar Shave Club may be the answer. You may recognize their name from radio ads, but you might have been hesitant to buy a relatively inexpensive razor and blades from a subscription service. After all, how good could it possibly be, right? Turns out, the products are very good.
If you’ve ever been interested in learning about coding, but you didn’t know where to start, the Ozobot Evo Marvel Avengers Iron Man Master Pack might be a great place. You’ll use OzoBlockly, Ozo’s coding program, to “drag and drop blocks of code to take full control of Evo’s features,” and there are other fun ways to learn while playing.
About 6 months after I purchased an Apple Watch, I stopped wearing it. While I’ve missed the convenience of wrist notifications, I never got comfortable with wearing what amounted to a microscopic and hobbled iPhone on my wrist. I prefer a more classic wristwatch style, but I also appreciate something smart; enter, the Engineered by HP Coach Bleecker Smart Watch.

It may not be on most people’s wish lists, but I’ve been hoping that Apple would give the iPhone wireless charging capabilities for years. After all, many Android phones have it, and automakers are starting to include chargers for those phones in their cars. But for iPhones? No joy. The Aircharge Keyring may be a good stopgap in the meantime.

When you need to thaw, melt, or heat something quickly, there’s nothing better than a blowtorch —but not just any torch will do. You need a torch with a flame that can be controlled and focused, and that’s where the Bernzomatic TS8000 Max shines.
Not every gift needs to fall into the techy category; there are people who would much prefer something for the home — something to snuggle in, something comforting. Brooklinen‘s new blankets and candles definitely fit the bill.
