Good riddance! Amazon has finally banned the ultra-shady practice of providing free products for honest and unbiased reviews.

I’m not quite sure how I pull off these plum review assignments. I’ve got another one today and I’m hoping to share it with you without making the whole team jealous. Meet bakBlade, which does exactly what you may presume it does – shaves the hair off your back (and any other flat surface such as arms or chest).
Have you tried Pokemon Go yet? Players of this augmented reality game have almost taken over my town and judging by the numbers of people I see walking after dark the popularity isn’t subsiding.
