Who doesn’t love walking into a freshly vacuumed room that they didn’t have to clean themselves? I’ve been enjoying that with the Eufy RoboVac G30 Hybrid. Not only can it handle the daily morning vacuuming of my approximately 10′ x 14′ office, but it can even mop it for me — when I want it to.
We recently took a look at the Goal Zero Sherpa 100PD. It’s a fantastic power bank that saved the day when we lost power some weeks ago. That was just one of the Goal Zero products that saved the day. The second was the Goal Zero YETI 200X Portable Power Station; it’s a powerhouse of a power station!
One of the downsides to working from home is that there are fewer reasons to get up and move around. At work, I would get up from my desk and walk to visit coworkers, get coffee, or visit the printer; at home, that just doesn’t happen. I was starting to feel pain from this loss of routine movement in my back and hips, which is why I was excited to give the Victor DCX610 Standing Desk a whirl!
I’ve been using Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners for years. My first scanner was already an excellent device, but each new model has added features and speed that took excellent products and made them even better. Now Fujitsu has announced two new models — the ScanSnap iX1600 and the ScanSnap iX1400. Both models are powerful, and they will make digitizing your workflow easier than ever.
Gamers need lag-free gaming if they want that advantage over their competition and the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) is about to make their claim for the best WiFi router for the gaming community. Sporting WiFi 6E, a 1.8 GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU with 1 GB RAM, and designed for heat dissipation, the ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 will be hard to beat.
There have been few toys that have drawn neighborhood jealousy as much as the Rollplay Nighthawk NexGen we’ve been testing. It’s an incredibly fun electric ride-on toy with a powerful 24V battery that powers a single rear wheel and is steered by your child by leaning side to side.
If you’ve got a Sam’s Club membership, you can take advantage of two great deals that have just popped up today for the Google Nest Smart Thermostat with Bonus Trim Kit and the Google Nest Audio Speaker 2 Pack. Take a look, and then get out your Sam’s Card!
I’m all-in on the Arlo ecosystem, so I was pleased to see that they have two new products showing at CES including the Arlo Essential Indoor Camera and the Arlo Touchless Video Doorbell. Both sound intriguing, but we don’t yet have a lot of details.
CES is typically the one time of year where there’s a little something for everyone, including things you never even knew you needed. Before today I never knew I needed an invisible, wireless smartphone charger, but now I’ve seen the Kew Labs UTS-1.
Every CES, I learn about new technology and new brands and am always amazed that I never checked them out. One of those brands is SKYWORTH. The Chinese brand has been making products since 1988, and they have just announced their upcoming TVs.
8K televisions were first introduced a few years ago when many of us were still upgrading our TVs to 4K. It landed firmly in the “I don’t really need it, nor do I want to pay for it” category for me, but it might be time to rethink that stance, as all TCL 6-Series Roku TVs released later this year will feature 8K resolution.
Being first-time parents came with many helpful suggestions of “things we should get.” Some were useful, but we ended up not needing many of those items; some of them we ended up regretting instantly, exchanging them for things we would actually use. But one of the saving graces over the first 5 months of our daughter’s life hasn’t been new toys or a NoseFrida, but what she’s slept in. After the past few months, it’s been repeatedly shown why the Happiest Baby SNOO Smart Sleeper Bassinet has been the best thing we’ve used with or our newborn.
At Samsung’s (virtual) press conference presentation yesterday, the company announced new products and initiatives that reflect their commitment to innovation. Televisions that are more immersive than ever were on display, as were innovations that can make entertainment more accessible to more people. Here’s a look at some of what they shared.
Printing photos for your relatives every time you take a great shot of one of the kids or your latest vacation is so retro; instead, you could be uploading and sharing those masterpieces directly to a Brookstone PhotoShare Smart Digital Photo Frame in their homes. We’ve got their latest 14″ frame in for review, and it’s as easy to operate as it is stunning to look at (and watch).
In my attempt to ward off the “quarantine 15[pounds]”, I converted a section of my basement into a home gym consisting of a treadmill, dumbbells, and a smart TV. But after nine months, I realized I needed something new to reinvigorate my workouts. After much research, I chose the Echelon Smart Connect Bike EX-5, and I could not be happier!
Indoor gardening has become really popular these days, and Altifarm has released the cutest version thus far. Pico is, as Altifarm puts it, “A garden in your palm.” It’s a miniature garden meant to grow small plants or herbs that is self-watering and has a built-in telescoping LED grow light. You can get yours from Indiegogo starting at $34.
Vizio currently offers several television lines; their OLED line starts at $1299.99, the P-Series starts at $1199.99 for a 65” television, and a 40″ M-Series starts at $399.99. By contrast, you can get a 40” V-Series television for just $229.99. The V705x-H1, which I was sent for review, has an MSRP of $659.99 and is currently available for $549.99.
Between the pandemic and the election, it’s been an insane year. Now that we have several vaccines on the way and the election results have been declared, we can all look forward to seeing what Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are coming. We’ve put together a few of our favorite deals from some brands you know — and a few you should consider — that you can shop, all from the safety of your home!
If you’re looking for a professional-level espresso drink at home without hiring a barista, the Jura ENA 8 is the next best thing. This automatic espresso machine grinds coffee beans fresh for each drink, perfectly steams and froths milk, and makes a heck of a cappuccino. Starting at $1,899, the Ena 8 is available in three accent colors.
This Holiday Season will be unlike any we have previously experienced, and gift-giving will be too. After all, people feel the financial pinch and, many of us are spending more time in our homes than ever. Here are some of the items that might make meaningful and practical gifts this year. You might see something for you, too!
One of the things I’ve come to appreciate, as I’ve learned more about MediaTek, is how many of the everyday electronic items I use — and depend on — have MediaTek chips in them. Yet, I doubt that I’ve ever given much thought about what was making these devices work, which honestly says a lot about MediaTek’s ubiquitousness.
