Beat the Heat with the Portacool Cyclone 140

Most summer days here in south Texas get hot enough that working in the garage or being outside is almost unbearable. I recently had the opportunity to test out the $999 Portacool Cyclone 140 in my own garage/golf cart shop. Texas was kind enough to give me a 103-degree day to start my review. Let’s take a look.



JYROBALL Is an Entirely New Breed of Self-Balancing Rideable

JYROBALL is a brand new self-balancing rideable that is shaped like a sphere. With footplates that fold out, users can ride up to 12.4mph and go up to 14 miles on a single charge. JYROBALL is supposed to be more maneuverable and stable than a hoverboard and easier to ride than a traditional electric unicycle.

Deal Alert: Try Harry’s Razors for Less

My wife Raina and I were in Costco recently. I was shocked at the price of premium, name-brand razor blades. Seriously, to see how costly multi-blade razors are, even at a place with such competitive prices, was a surprise. It made me take another look at Harry’s razors.



Morphiis Mattress Is a Customizable Bed in a Box

All were great, however, they all tend to just fit the industry standard of just being a bed in a box that is firm, soft, or hard.

There’s a reason the Pieces of the Galaxy Puzzles were funded on day 1 of their Kickstarter campaign.

As I wrote in my initial post about the campaign, the collection includes 8 planets, the sun, the moon, and a mystery planet.




Razor E Prime Air Electric Scooter Is Fast and Fun Transportation

When Raina and I moved into our home just a mile from the synagogue, it seemed logical that I would walk to work on nice days. But the first time I did, I needed my car and had to sprint home. I haven’t walked since. Now, thanks to the Razor E Prime Air electric scooter, I have a third option.

The good people at TVape sent us one of the $229.99 portable vapes for review, and we are impressed. Anodized aluminum with a matte black finish and a gold chamber and vapor path, are key to why this is a quality product.
