What’s the most important thing to consider when searching for a new mattress? Is it foam vs. coil construction, or whether or not the mattress runs cool or warm, or maybe you want a mattress built in the USA? Lucky for you, the new Serta Arctic Premier Mattress checks all the boxes.
How would you like to come home to a freshly vacuumed house every day without hiring a housekeeper or, worse, doing it yourself before you leave? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could stretch out the periods between full moppings with occasional wet cleanups? With the Uoni V980Plus Robot Vacuum Cleaner, you can do that, and you don’t necessarily have to remember to empty the robot’s bin every couple of days because this robot vac has a large capacity self-emptying dustbin.
The oddest thing happened the other day; my daughter sent me a TikTok video of a Roborock robot vacuum doing its thing, and she said it looked amaaaaaazing. That was surprising because it’s rare for my daughter to get any kind of gadget lust! If you’re getting similar hints from someone on your holiday shopping list (or if you’ve wanted one for yourself), you’re going to want to check out these Roborock Black Friday Deals that offer up to 42% off of their most popular robot vacuums and mops.
We have slowly converted to all hard flooring in our house and added an adorable black labrador that seems to keep the floors dirty. The Proscenic P10 Cordless Vacuum has become a game-changer for fast and easy clean-up. With tons of features and attachments, the P10 works in just about any cleaning situation.
The amazing thing about modern technology is that we literally have devices that we can ask to lock doors, turn off and on lights, look up recipes, and even change channels for us, all with a verbal command. The scary thing about modern technology is that we’ve also invited always-listening microphones into our homes to meet that convenience. Pozio aims to solve the privacy issue without taking away our digital butlers using listening blockers that double as cradles!
My vehicles always have jumper cables; whether to get my ride going or to help a stranded motorist, they are a handy tool to carry. What if there is no other vehicle around to jump the battery? That is where the Shell 1200A 12V Portable Lithium Jump Starter comes into play.
We’ve tested several Eufy robotic vacuums in my house, and the one thing my wife and I agree on is that the Eufy RoboVac X8 is the best we’ve tested so far. The combination of twin-turbine technology and iPath laser navigation makes the X8 an excellent choice for your next robotic vacuum.
When you think of home theater set-ups, you usually picture a soundbar under the TV with speakers and a subwoofer set up around the room. That all changes with the Lovesac Sactionals StealthTech Sound + Charge System, which puts the home theater audio components inside your sofa, for a deep and immersive Harman Kardon sound experience that you can feel and hear but don’t see.
It’s safe to say we’re all a lot more aware of air quality than we used to be. Whether it’s due to outside environmental issues like wildfire or just the fact that we’ve all realized our houses are full of dust after we spent half of 2020 in lockdown, we’re all a lot more aware that all the air we breathe is not equal. That’s where the HAVEN Central Air Controller and their other IAQ (Improved Air Quality) devices come in!
Scansnap scanners have been a mainstay of my workflow for years. Rarely does a day pass by that I don’t use one. In January, we brought word of two new scanners, the iX1600 and iX1400. This morning Fujitsu announced an addition to that lineup; the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1300 has a compact design but includes some impressive features.
Digital photo frames are all the rage these days, with most of our photos being taken on our mobile phones. Enter the new Nixplay Smart Photo Frame 10.1 inch Touch. This bright, high-definition frame has an easy-to-use touchscreen interface, and it is a great way to display your family’s precious memories.
There are times when you want to keep an eye on your food, but you’ve got a ton of other stuff going on. Maybe you’re cooking a side dish or playing with your kids. That’s where the Yummly Smart Thermometer comes into play; it takes all the guesswork out of cooking, and it retails for $129.99.
Airthings, known for their great smart home tech, released their latest air quality monitoring device, the Airthings View Plus. The View Plus is a simple yet powerful device that continuously monitors your home’s air quality to help keep your family safe from allergens, radon, pollution, and more. The first batch has sold out, but you can pre-order yours for $299.
If your home has issues with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, or dust mites, you need an air purifier. And while there are plenty of them on the market, I think you should check out the Shark Air Purifier 6.
Despite being a full-blown nerd from an early age (“Why do you always have to fiddle with things?” my brother once demanded when we were kids), I’ve rarely been an early adopter. I don’t get version one releases of software, cars, or new gizmos (with the notable exception of the iPhone). And I still don’t have a robot vacuum. But maybe I should take a look at the new Samsung Jet Bot AI+ Robot Vacuum, hm?
Now that I’m a bit older, I’m learning the true value of privacy and security. Some friends in my crypto group discussed how they secure their valuables, and the subject of safes was a big one. So I started researching simple yet solid safes that I can store safely but didn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Enter the Yale Laptop Alarmed Value Safe.
Many of us have had the luxury of working from home over the past year which means many of us have been suffering through countless hours of Zoom and Webex conference calls. Historically, built-in webcams are terrible and such low-quality, no one can tell you’re rocking your PJs on the call. But with the Logitech BRIO Ultra HD Pro Business Webcam, you might want to shower and dress up, because you’ll come through crisp and clear! Be sure to enter our Work from Home Giveaway at the end of this review!
I hate mopping. I’m sure you hate mopping too. I did it to make money when I was in high school, working as a janitor for a restaurant in Walnut Creek, California (that no longer exists, ‘natch). I did it to help put myself through college in the University dining hall. I do it now to keep my house clean. Now SLYDE says they can help ease my (and your) mopping pain.
July 4th is when we celebrate our awesome country and spend time with friends and family. Good eats, good drinks, and a good time outdoors are what we most like to partake in. With that in mind, here are a few cool products that will spice up your July 4th party plans.
Over the past few years, I’ve personally reviewed so many robot vacuums that I’ve truly lost count. But there’s one constant brand that, no matter what new products they unveil, seem to push the envelope in innovation, and that brand is ECOVACS. The latest ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO N8 Pro Plus is pretty amazing. ECOVACS latest is their DEEBOT N-Series, highlighted by the N8+ and the N8 Pro+. Both robot vacs promise unmatched features that you can’t readily get from some other brand in your local brick and mortar. It’s been a few years since robot vacs made first became trendy,…
I have never once uttered the words “I love this vacuum” until the Dreame T30. Using a vacuum is usually an ordeal — my full-size vac is bulky, I have to haul it out of a closet, and it never seems to suction as well as it should. Apparently, I’ve just been using the wrong vacuums all this time because the Dreametech Dreame T30 Cordless Vacuum lives up to its name; it is an absolute dream to use!
