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 [...]

When traveling, I like to have light versatile products to use when I am out and about touring. While I almost always carry some sort of bag or sack for souvenirs or goodies, they are not waterproof or do not offer a waterproof storage area. The Matador Droplet Wet Bag can solve that issue, it [...]

If you're as much of a fan of WaterField bags as I am, you'll be interested to know that WaterField has recently introduced their new Vitesse messenger bag. The bag is [...]

It takes almost no effort to get kids interested in technology because they are naturally drawn to gadgets and gizmos like smartphones and iPads. While playing games on these devices is a lot of fun for children, they don't learn much from the time spent gaming. What if kids could play and learn important skills [...]

WiFi-Analyzer

I recently switched to T-mobile and upgraded our router to the T-mobile CellSpot (an ASUS dual-band TM-AC1900 router). When setting up this router, I didn't want to use the default channels. I wanted to select the optimal channels that my wireless router would use on the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands (not all of our devices support the [...]

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 [...]
