For those of you who don't remember or missed the review, it was a simple, feature-rich, app controlled, Wi-Fi security camera.

What can I say about desk lamps? Up until recently I did not give them much thought, but as I get a little older I find that having a desk lamp is a nice addition to my writing needs. When it comes to desk lights the old stand by screw in light bulb kind are [...]
