Are you one of the millions of people who use a wireless camera to keep an eye on your home and property when you can't physically be there? How did you decide which camera to buy when there are so many on the market to choose from? I've lost count of all the security cameras [...]

Bellini_25

The Bellini Kitchen Master is kind of like a really gorgeous guy you always imagined would be the perfect boyfriend till he became your boyfriend, and you realized he wasn’t so perfect, though you still felt you needed to believe it because of all the wonderful packaging. Besides, everybody says he’s wonderful, so it really [...]

juicepresso-platinum-10

A few years ago when I was over at my brother in law's home, he asked if we wanted some fresh apple juice. He then proceeded to juice up a batch of apples for us with a new juicer he had purchased. The juice tasted great, but then he spent the next several minutes cleaning [...]

Have you seen the acronym IoT? It stands for Internet of Things and according to Google it means: a proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data. Someone at google needs to update their definitions because this isn't something we'll have in the future. It's [...]

Barbarian - 1

I'm not much of a drink mixer. I like cocktails, but don't do much mixing myself. Part of the reason is that, other than a knife, a shot glass, and a corkscrew, I really don't have many of the tools needed to make those fun concoctions. But, as an intrepid gadgeteer, I knew we shouldn't [...]

Using my smartphone in my home can be tricky because not all areas of my house have the same signal strength. On my main level, the signal is fine, but in my basement, the signal is much weaker or is non-existent. The weakest signal is in my office - Gadgeteer HQ. This makes it difficult to take calls [...]

Ninja Coffee Bar_1

Hi, my name is Bill Henderson and I’m an addict. I confess, I am a coffee addict. Ironically, I don’t drink it for the caffeine kick. Caffeine has no effect on me. I drink it for the taste. I like coffee. Currently my household uses a Keurig style maker made by Cuisinart. It’s a basic [...]

I've reviewed a LOT of wireless cameras, IP cameras, home security cameras, whatever you want to call them and have a specific set of features and criteria that I use to judge these types of cameras. #1 is image quality, #2 is viewing angle, #3 mobile viewing application usage and features, and #4 camera needs [...]

As soon as it gets even close to nice weather here in Southern Indiana, the gnats, mosquitoes,  and other annoying bugs are out in full force. It's bad enough dealing with them when you are outdoors, but no one wants bugs indoors too. How do you get rid of them without bug sprays? One solution may [...]

If you take more than one pill per day, whether they are vitamins or drugs for a medical condition, organizing them so you won't miss a daily dose can be a chore. We've all seen the cheap rectangular pill boxes that are separated into seven sections, one for each day of the week and have [...]

In the last couple years, I've been switching my home's standard and CFL light bulbs to LED bulbs to save energy and money. But as I've been doing that, I've seen lots of LED bulbs come on the market that can be controlled anywhere with a mobile app. I wish all my bulbs or even [...]

Cloud based cameras are a very easy way to add a level of security to your home. While they won't prevent bad things from happening, they can alert you as soon as bad things start happening so you can do something about it as quickly as possible. I've been using a mixture of various brands [...]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The box is titled “START HERE ROMANTIC LIFE”. Romance in a box? It it really that simple? Inside the box is a nifty little Bluetooth speaker with a very nice dimmable, changeable, LED light.   The Amazon item title is more specific and quite a bit longer; “Nightlights for Kids, Dimmable Table Lamps, Touch Control LED [...]

TheDuke - 8

Standing desks have been around for years, but they are making a comeback, due to some recent studies. The studies revolved around the dangers of sitting for prolonged periods. I've recently seen news reports of schools that are replacing traditional desks with standing desks, and the energizing effect they've had on students. So, with my [...]
