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.

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.
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).

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!

The adage “all publicity is good publicity” is failing Facebook right now, because pretty much all the news about them is yet another story about them being shady.
I’ve been a huge fan of Eufy and their parent company, Anker, recently. Eufy doesn’t disappoint with their brand spanking new SpaceView HD Wireless Baby Monitor. With a huge HD display, long battery life, great night vision, two-way audio, and pan, tilt, zoom functionality; it’s my new favorite baby monitor when you take into account the affordable $169.99 price point.
I once bought a car in part because the concept of a push-button ignition made me feel like I was living in the future. However, nothing feels more futuristic than the August Smart Lock + Connect I installed in my apartment recently —it’s not quite as futuristic as the magic doors in Star Trek, but it’s pretty darn close!

If you walk into my living room, you will see a small white WiFi camera sitting on a shelf. It lets me check in on my Goldendoodle Nava when we’re out. These days, however, many WiFi cameras (often called Spy Cameras) are hidden from view. That’s where the SpyFinder Pro Hidden Camera Detector comes in. It is seeking funding on Kickstarter, and it works!
