Technology improvements creep downwards from cutting edge to every day to eventually being aimed at kids. It’s inevitable that as smartwatches become more popular, kids are going to be interested.

I have been using the Vivint Smart Home for some time, and it has really become a regular part of our lives. The initial install and thoughts can be found here (pt1) and here (pt2).

Dash cams have been around for many years and up until recently, they have been very popular in other countries outside of the United States.

The Vava Dash Cam offers its own spin by trimming down the size, removing the screen and relying on a smartphone app for everything.
These days it seems you can’t go a few days or maybe hours before hearing about having online accounts being hacked or breached. For a lot of us, our Google account is one of the most important parts of our online identity. While you can already use things like 2-factor authentication to protect yourself, Google Advanced Protection takes it to a whole new level!
Father’s Day is fast approaching, and if you’ve been racking your brain for some great gifts that think outside of the sock drawer and toolbox, then we’ve got you covered. Regardless of your budget, this gift guide will have something perfect for the dads in your life.
My son is in kindergarten, and his favorite part of school is coding class. I was surprised (and a little jealous) that he gets to play coding games and drive robots. Today, though, their lesson was a little different: they learned rules for staying safe online.
Mother’s Day is coming, and we have a great selection of items for mom that go well beyond the typical flowers, plants, and chocolates. So if you are looking for something different, check out these techy yet thoughtful gifts!
Over the weekend, a college student got into a car she thought was an Uber, and tragically she was murdered. This is an awful story. Somehow, the folks at invisaWear, jewelry that offers emergency GPS beacons, thought this tragedy was a good opportunity to promote their product.
I’m one of the fortunate few who get to call Vail, Colorado home. For those that ski or snowboard, you know exactly where I live and either A) will not read the rest of this review (but I hope you do) or B) hate me and my life (don’t judge).

One of the most frustrating things about security camera systems is that you need to run power and Ethernet cable to the locations where you want to install your cameras. Eufy is here to save a ton of time and effort with their new eufyCam system, a 100% wireless security camera system with 365-day battery life and zero subscription fees.
Ring is popular for their video doorbells and home security systems, but for those of us who live in homes without doorbells, you may have felt a bit left out. That’s no longer the case, thanks to the new Ring Door View Cam.
This week at CES, Ooma announced their Ooma Telo 4G, and Ooma Home Security system, both set to make sure your home always connected and reliable, even during a power outage.
You know how spy movies try to show how technologically advanced they are by using retina scanners? Well, apparently they’re behind the curve because B-Secur is pushing their EKG technology, HeartKey, as the ultimate algorithm to identify you as well as make sure that lifetime addiction to Dunkin’ Donuts hasn’t caught up with you yet.
The Ooma Butterfleye we reviewed back in 2018 was a great home security camera that I still use to this day, but there were a few things I’d hoped Ooma would eventually update. Seems they listened, as Ooma has announced their next generation Ooma Smart Cam with more to love and view — in, or out of their home.
Over the past year, I’ve traveled to quite a few places, some with the shadiest unsecured internet you can imagine, from Starbucks to hotels in different countries, and I gained a bit more peace of mind thanks to my virtual private network, or VPN of choice – NordVPN.

It’s a bit tougher when you rent, but there’s plenty of ways to make your apartment smarter!
