eureka-brushroll-clean-7

Buying a vacuum can be a lot like buying a new car. Like cars, vacuums are expensive, come in sub-compact, compact, mid-sized and full-sized models with all sorts of options that you may or may not need. I've reviewed quite a few vacuums in the past few years, but keep looking for my holy grail of [...]

tv-mirror

Minimalists will love this product because it's a mirror that conceals a big screen TV. Use it as a mirror by day and at night it becomes a TV. The TV Mirror mounts over your existing TV and uses beamsplitter TV mirror technology to turn the black screen of your powered off TV into a [...]

batman-mirror

If you're a fan of the Dark Knight, this Batman logo shaped mirror should be perfect for you. At least until your wife makes you take it down ;) The Batman mirror is based on the circa 2003 logo - if you keep up with things like that. It's made out of acrylic so it [...]

Am I a dork because I like this spork? NO!  However, I may be one because of that silly rhyme.  Moving on, this simple little gadget is small enough to fit in your palm and can be taken with you camping, or everyday to work so you don't have to use flimsy plastic that breaks, [...]

tuck-device-rack

If you're reading this post, you probably share a common problem that all gadget packrats share. We have lots of devices but no good way to store them while they are not being used. I keep my older MacBook Air on the end table next to my side of our double Lazy Boy couch, Jeanne [...]

Dlink-Wifi-Camera-1

I have never had a WiFi security camera, but it has been on my list of things to try. I've read Julie's review of the FLIR FX Security camera and DropCam Pro and came to the conclusion that those seem to be the security cameras to beat. When the D-link HD WiFi Camera was offered [...]

havahart_elite2-jacen

My family and I live on 10 acres in Washington State and while we live about 20 miles of downtown Seattle, our place is pretty rural. Many critters and creatures live on and transit through our trees and fields all year long. This is especially true during the spring, when some years the deer are like [...]

axe-pizza-cutter

If you're the sort who likes to chop through a pizza with a macho tool, or you're a Monty Python fan, you'll need the Axe Pizza Cutter.  It has a rolling blade like a standard pizza cutter, but it ups the macho factor with the wooden handle and the axe-blade surround for the stainless cutting [...]

mighty-blaster-1

Do you need to buy a new spray nozzle for your garden hose every summer because they are cheaply made and fall apart before the end of the season? The folks at TeleBrands sent me the Mighty Blaster fireman's nozzle and a Pocket Hose to try for a few weeks and so far it's a [...]

silk-by-saffron-color-changing-light

In recent years, there's been a lot of discussion about how the blue light from the screens of mobile devices could be negatively impacting sleep patterns.  Humans evolved having bright, bluish-white light from the sun during part of the day.  The only light they had at night was either from the stars and moon or [...]

Wasn't there a law passed several years ago banning the practice of adding an "i" in front of a product name just to sound techy and hip? Probably not, but there should be, call your congressman now. Anyway, the iFork (just saying the name makes me roll my eyes because it has nothing to do [...]
