Now that I’m fully embracing adulthood by having my own place, the one thing that I overlooked after mounting TVs, buying a bigger bed, was how I would get work done when I’m at home. After looking at Ikea, and various other places for a desktop setup, I settled in on Fully’s Jarvis Standing Desk, and I couldn’t be happier.
As a fan of good Kentucky Bourbon, one thing that I’ve always wanted to try out is a breathalyzer, so when I had the opportunity to test the AlcoMate Revo Personal Digital Breathalyzer test, I made it a mission to stay in on a Saturday and test out my new favorite gadget.

It’s no secret that Amazon’s Echo devices are popular. The AI that powers the system, named Alexa, allows owners to do a lot of unique things, like ordering new products with voice commands or even controlling smart home technology.

It might be easy to dismiss an organization system that keeps track of things you’ve stored as something someone with too much “stuff” would want, something someone who needs to explore the minimalistic lifestyle would need. But you don’t have to be a budding hoarder for the Bluelounge Quick Peek to help you keep track of “what’s in the box.”

When’s the last time you had to participate in a conference call? If that’s not something you do regularly, then you might think that there’s no reason for you to be interested in a review of the Jabra Speak 710 … but you’d be wrong.
Having a puppy presents a new set of challenges for every dog owner, but one that is ever present is: You have to walk them. And rather than getting tangled when your dog decides to split the pole or walk where you can’t go, you should pick up the TaoTronic Retractable Dog Leash.
For the past few years, I’ve been one of a select group of international journalists invited to the IFA Global Press Conference. A warm-up, if you will, for the yearly IFA convention held in Berlin, the press conference is a great time to check up on the current and future status of the global electronics market.
“These cost how much?” Raina asked. “Just listen to them,” I urged. Raina put on the headphones and played some of her favorite tunes.“ It didn’t take long for her to become a fan of Focal’s Elear Open-Back Headphones. But at $1000 a pair, she’s not sure they would be a wise purchase.

When’s the last time you purchased a printer? Were you as surprised as I was by how inexpensive they’ve become? Here’s the thing, though: the printers themselves are inexpensive, but when purchasing ink cartridges, you’ll learn that great deal wasn’t so great. That’s why I’m so intrigued by the Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer.
My husband snores. not all the time but sometimes, and if I don’t fall asleep before he does, his snoring can keep me awake. Kev’s had a sleep test (there’s no sleep apnea), and he’s tried various anti-snore devices to no avail. I’ve tried earplugs, but they block everything (like alarms); it’s better to use QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs.

A small ice chest is not always in the cards, so I usually turn to high quality drink ware. The Pelican TRAVBO32 bottle ($39.99) has proven its worth in my recent tests.
An ad* says you should use Febreze on household items you can’t wash — things like pet beds, couch cushions, curtains, throw pillows, and fluffy throw blankets. Here’s the thing, though — spraying a deodorizer on those items does nothing more than mask odors. If you want to deep clean these things, you can use the RAYCOP RS2 Fabric Purifier.

My living room offers a great media experience thanks to a large 4K Vizio display and full surround-sound audio system via Sonos. The bedroom has the 55” Vizio display I reviewed.
