If the thought of poop particles on your toothbrush doesn’t give you pause, maybe the knowledge that blood, viruses, and other bodily fluids (found in your mouth) also end up on your toothbrush should.

Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place.

Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Rootd wants to help.

I’m a huge fan of Casio digital watches. They’re by far my favorite watches, and while the venerable F-91W isn’t my favorite (that would be the AE-1200, aka the “Casio Royale”), what the Solid State Watch is doing to the F-91W is horrifying, even before you get to the eye-popping price they’ve attached to it on Kickstarter.
Most nights (and more often days) I dread cooking for myself. I’ve heard that meal plans can reduce the urge to spend money going out to restaurants, so when I found the opportunity to check out Veestro, a Vegan meal subscription plan, I was eager to see how it would fare for a person who’s never been a Vegan.
Health, fitness, and tech are an interesting mix. On the one hand, basic biology hasn’t changed since well before the first phone was invented. On the other, as technology improves rapidly, there’s always a new way to spin getting into shape.
Breathing is something we take for granted most of the time, up until something alters the environment like pollution or a fire. Then breathing becomes painfully important, and everyone walks around in masks that make them look like they’re playing Bane at a ComicCon.
