portable-scale

When was the last time you wished you had a bathroom scale that you could take with you everywhere you go? If the answer to that question is anything but never, you need to go eat a cheeseburger and get over it. But I'm not judging. Ok maybe a little. ;) For those of us [...]

It's been a long day at the office, school, factory, chain gang, (insert your job here) and all you want to do is go home and have your significant other rub your feet. If you don't have an SO or your SO refuses to touch your little piggys, the OSIM uSqueeze may be the next [...]

Let's face it, working out is not fun. Those of you that think it is, are just crazy because working out has fried your brain. For us normal (aka lazy) folks, we know the real truth. Working out is never going to be as much fun as sitting on our LazyBoy recliner watching The Game [...]

I have my thermostat set to go down to 68 degrees at night because I sleep better when it's cool. When I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing the PolarPillow,   I was intrigued by their claims that it would keep my head cool for hours without the need for refrigeration, batteries or water. [...]

diabetes-pilot-app

Diabetes management is a game of numbers.  How many carbs eaten, insulin injected, blood glucose numbers.  Blood glucose meters usually come with a little booklet to track some of these numbers in, but they're always small, quickly filled up, and easily lost.  Digital Altitudes, LLC has software products that help you track everything you need [...]

suunto_elementum-contents

The All Black is 'just...' a new color scheme in the existing Sunnto Elementum Terra line. The all-black casing and negative display make for a stealthy (Stargate ;)) look, while retaining all the functionality of the Terra clan. I have always been tempted by Suunto's luxury line of Elementum Terra watches but to be honest [...]

massaging-bed-rest-pillow

When I was in college, everybody had these bed pillows that looked like the back of a chair with arms.  We called these pillows "husbands", and they were great back support while we sat on our beds doing assignments for hours.  I had seen a few husbands in stores over the years, but none were [...]

pour-homme-clipper

You might remember my review of the Klhip nail clippers which have a really cool design, but a price tag that is very prohibitive. Guess what? I've found another pair of clippers that look just as cool (maybe more) but cost considerably less. They are the Pour Homme Ultra Slim Nail Clippers. They feature a [...]

They were for the folks that are offering the new Klhip Ultimate Nail Clippers. They have taken the nail cutting device that we've all used for years and brought [...]

nightwave

Maybe the NightWave can. This is a small device that you place on your bedside table that uses a soft blue light to silently guide your breathing and focus your mind. Users lie with their eyes open and synchronize their breathing with the rise and fall of the soft light as its movement becomes slower [...]

Back in high school and a majority of college, I used the Norelco 885RX electric razor you see in the middle of the picture below (I agree, I could not believe I still had it as well). It was well used and dying quickly. In my junior year, I was given the sterling silver straight [...]
