Marvel has done a pretty amazing job with their cinematic universe. They spent years building up to The Avengers, and the interconnected universe since then has been a testament to their creative design.

Teaching kids about coding has become as basic to education as reading and math. In fact, my kindergartener has coding as part of his school curriculum! UBTECH aims to bring coding and building skills to kids with their UBTECH JIMU Robot BuilderBots Series Overdrive Kit. It says ages 8+, but would my precocious kindergartener approve?
The adage “all publicity is good publicity” is failing Facebook right now, because pretty much all the news about them is yet another story about them being shady.
Stan Lee, the creator of every Marvel character you love, has passed away at age 95. He’s lived a remarkable life and has left a huge mark on the world. We have him to thank for X-Men, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, and yes, Spider-Man!
Looking for a thin, powerful laptop that runs Windows? The incredibly shrinking bezels continue with new ASUS ZenBooks, boasting powerful insides and a near-borderless screen.
I once bought a car in part because the concept of a push button ignition made me feel like I was living in the future. However, nothing feels more futuristic than the August Smart Lock + Connect I installed in my apartment recently —it’s not quite as futuristic as the magic doors in Star Trek, but it’s pretty darn close!
There are really only three episodes of Doctor Who that I have trouble rewatching: “The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances” always freaks me out, “The Water of Mars” still gives me full body shudders, and last week’s “Arachnids in the UK” was deeply unsettling because spiders should not be the size of ponies.
The only thing more sought-after than cold fusion and alchemy is a tablet/laptop hybrid that actually delivers on the best parts of each. Microsoft laid the groundwork with the Surface line, and now Samsung is jumping in with the Galaxy Book 2, boasting Windows 10, LTE connectivity, and an eye-popping 20 hours of battery life.
Even though I rarely need them, I’m a sucker for a good pocketknife. I have a small one I keep on my keychain, and I have a cool fish-shaped one I keep on my fishing rod bag. So of course I said yes when offered the chance to check out the Urbanoider, a compact EDC knife.
Indigo is a huge Canadian bookstore chain, and they’ve opened their first United States location in Short Hills, NJ. It happens to be right by where I work, so I swung by on my way home today to check it out…and, well, Indigo is best described as an experience, not a store.
I reviewed Neuro Gum last spring, and at the time noted it was tasty, offered a nice caffeine kick, and had eased a headache or two for me. They have a new flavor out, CinnaMental, and they gave me the chance to revisit the gum and try the new flavor!
Desktop towers went from being a fixture in every home to a rarity, but the ones that are still made fit niches that go above and beyond the sea of boring laptops. Dell is trying to make you excited for a desktop again by adding Intel K-Series processors into new XPS and Alienware desktops! Alienware Aurora is designed to give…
I recently gave my Grandma an amazing gift for her 90th birthday; I took photos from throughout her life and using a combination of Google PhotoScan, PicStitch, iMovie, and iTunes, I made a slideshow featuring friends and family. It only cost me some time, but the look on my grandma’s face when we showed it to her was priceless.
Every time it seems like smartphones have become homogeneous and boring, you can count on LG to make it interesting again. They’ve tried modular phones and phones with secondary screens, but their newest idea is their best by far: the LG V40 ThinQ is a FIVE-CAMERA smartphone. And US Cellular is making it an even sweeter deal for their customers!
I haven’t watched American Horror Story: Apocalypse, but I’m assuming it’s relatively unrealistic. If they wanted to make it more realistic, the only thing left standing would clearly be Casio G-Shock watches. And probably Starbucks. But definitely G-Shocks. Casio has updated the already indestructible G-Shock line with the new GBA-800, which adds fitness tracking to general badassery.
Let’s face it, as paperless as we’re going, you still need a printer regularly. School forms, medical forms, random reports, all kinds of things still sometimes need to be printed physically. So you need a printer, and you might as well have one that’s compact and can handle everything from basic printing to photos. Enter the Epson XP-6000.
Everything in your house is getting smarter, and your locks are no exception. Aside from maybe worrying you didn’t unplug the hairdryer or turn off the oven, fretting over whether you locked your door after leaving is probably everyone’s biggest worry. August Home is teaming up with sibling brand Yale Locks to help alleviate that worry with new smart locks!

There are a number of ways for kids to learn, but the best is sneaking learning exercises into doing fun stuff, and speaking as the parent of a 5-year-old, it’s nearly universal that trucks and building things will attract children. Enter UBTech’s BuilderBots.
The folks at Rocketbook make an awesome product. Jot down your thoughts, snap a photo with the app, and upload it to the cloud service or email of your choice. Wipe your notebook clean, and do it all over again. They’ve teamed up with the folks at Think Board to combine Rocketbook’s magic with Think Board’s peel and stick whiteboards…
The faster technology improves, the better the features are that trickle down to mid-tier devices. Samsung is definitely proving this to be true with their newest smartphones, the Galaxy A6, J3, and J7, and their new tablet, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5″.
