Know Who’s Knocking with the August View Video Doorbell

Clickher Wants to Bring a Human Touch to Fashion Articles

My mother never tried to force me to read fashion magazines, except for the seasonal guides. I remember them being 3x the size of normal magazines and full of an overwhelming amount of ads and tips.

Miss the Mark on Your New Years Resolution? Well It’s Time to Sweat!

As someone who tried and failed at P-98, I’ve always been skeptical about those “all-in-one home gym” solutions that you see on Instagram, advertised to change your body in just a few short weeks. The best way to transform your body, other than keeping good nutritional habits, is a constant workout regimen. And ironically, one app that I’ve been testing for the past month has been helping to transform my dog-dad bod.

Apple Pay Is Coming to Target!

I love Apple Pay. It’s hands down my preferred way of paying for things. Yes, it’s secure and all, but really, I just like not having to whip out my wallet.
