Are you constantly struggling to find something new for that special Star Wars fan in your life? You've placed a Star Wars wedding band on their finger, their phone is powered by the Dark Side, and they already rock out with their Chewie headphones, what else could they possibly need? Allow me to present the Han [...]

botvac-d85

I've been a huge fan of Neato's Botvacs after reviewing their Neato Botvac 80 robot vacuum earlier this year. I continue to use it several times a week to keep my floors clean and love that it does the work while I can do other things. Neato has just announced a new D series with models [...]

echo

Ever since Apple came out with Siri, I’ve been wanting some kind of stand-alone personal assistant for the house. When Amazon released their Echo, I jumped at the chance to buy it. After several long months of waiting, the device finally arrived. When I opened the black box, the heavy, long, matte black cylinder looked [...]

h2ovibe-showerhead-speaker

Replace your current standard shower head with the H2oVibe Showerhead Jet with Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, and you'll be able to listen to music as you shower.  The H2oVibe is 8.9" in diameter, so it resembles some of those huge, expensive rainfall-type shower heads.  The H2oVibe produces three times more spray power than a standard shower [...]

bluetooth-ericofon

I love Mid-Century Modern architecture, furniture, and interior decor.  I used to have one of the coolest Mid-Century telephones ever created - the Ericsson Ericofon.  It looked unlike any other phone that came before it; it was sleek, modern, and colorful.  I used mine for a while as an extension phone because the ringer didn't work, but [...]

snap-design-your-own-furniture-2

Have you ever built your own furniture?  I'm not talking about creating a beautifully handcrafted piece of heirloom-quality furniture like a Chippendale chair.  I'm talking about using pallets or screwing some legs onto a board - either because you like the bohemian style or because buying a piece of furniture isn't in the budget?  SNAP, [...]

How many times have you been relaxing on the couch or in bed when your smartphone or tablet runs out of juice? If you're lazy like I am, you probably don't want to get up and plug in your device to charge it because let's face it, getting up is too much like work! Couchlet [...]

leeo-smart-alert-nightlight-1

We live in a condo building that was built in 1963.  It's a 14-story building with more than 100 units in it.  In addition to each unit having their own fire alarms, there is a central fire alarm system for the entire building.  Because the building is older, the systems in the individual units aren't [...]

cooks-innovations-buttermill-1

Grilled cheese sandwiches and buttered toast are two of my favorites. But buttering the bread when the butter has been taken straight from the refrigerator can be challenging because cold butter doesn't spread very easily. Taking the butter out ahead of time to soften is the easiest way to solve the problem, but for those times when you don't [...]

bluetooth-speaker-ottoman

I don't normally think of Bluetooth speakers as being big enough to use as a footstool, but this one is.  The Bluetooth Speaker Ottoman has a quilted faux leather exterior, so it blends in with your decor.  It's available in black only, and it measures 18" tall X 17.5" wide X 18" deep.  It has [...]

mosquito-repelling-flameless-torch

It's that time of the year that everyone dreads here in the South - mosquito season.  The joke is that the mosquito is the state bird, but it's no joke when you can't even enjoy your outdoor spaces because it seems you and everyone with you are the main course at the mosquitoes' banquet.  Set [...]

It appears as though the endless East-coast Winter may have finally given way to Spring. With the warmer weather, refrigerators will soon be packed with fresh fruit from local farmer's markets, co-ops, and grocery stores.  However, even in the refrigerator, these fruits are prone to begin to spoil in just a few days.  In the [...]
