Getting sick is obviously no fun, but having an easy way to track your fevers can be just a little more fun when you use the Kinsa Smart Thermometer.

I prefer earbuds to headphones because they are smaller and easier to carry around than a full-sized pair of earphones. While I like them better earphones, I know I'm not alone in having issues with earbuds falling out of my ears. If you're a fan of Apple's earpods which have come packaged with the iPhone, [...]

We've all probably played air guitar at least once in our lives. If you don't know what it is (do you live under a rock?), air guitar is pantomiming playing an electric guitar just like your favorite guitar hero shredding to a classic song. Anyone can play air guitar, but how would you like to [...]
