XY Find It review

There seem to be dozens of finder/tracker devices available on the market now. Obviously, this is a common problem.  I wonder how many hours are spent searching for lost things?  If we could recover all, or even some of the hours spent by every man, woman, and child looking for lost keys, wallets, coats, dogs… Read More

Kehan dash cam review

The Kehan Dash Cam, model C891N, is a very good camera. It’s too bad I can’t love it. The picture and sound quality are excellent. The dash cam is easy to install, as long as you are willing and able to wedge the included cable between the windshield and car interior and can contort yourself to secure… Read More

GoTouch review

Presentations. Collaborations. Teamwork. Sharing. All of these have been part of my life for years, part of all of our lives. It’s how things get done. GoTouch is another tool to add our repertoire to make this part of our lives easier, more flexible and more effective.  It turns any TV into a whiteboard. But… Read More

A phone is a most useful thing in a car. It also can be a dangerous distraction. The balance between the two can be as simple as a secure and properly placed mount. The Square Jellyfish Jelly-Grip Car Vent mount provided that balance for me. It provides a secure, visible and easy place for my… Read More

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reached my fingers out to my desktop screen expecting it to react like my phone or iPad. I’ve become so used to touch navigation I expect it everywhere. The MaskTouch, touchscreen accessory for Apple iMac proves that I’m not alone. This product was original named “Zorro Macsk”… Read More

Robot vacuums are proliferating, and it’s wonderful. It’s a perfect match, a mindless machine for a mindless task. I hate vacuuming, but living in dusty farming country and having a big hairy dog, it is a necessity. We’ve had another vacuum robot doing the job for the last 2 years and I’ve been satisfied with… Read More

I’ve been procrastinating writing my review of the MIUCOLOR Trunk Organizer, waiting for a “really big” shopping trip to load it up and get a picture. I thought a “really big” trip would be the true test of the trunk organizer. However, this summer has been so busy I haven’t had any really big trips… Read More

Levitator Standup Desk

Wow! That was my first reaction when I opened the box for my Levitator stand up desk.  Was it a desk or art?  The acrylic panels are so bright and airy, and cheerful! My office is not, it has more of a quiet and peaceful vibe to it, I wondered how the Levitator would fit in. … Read More

The ReoLink PoE IP RLC-410 Security Camera is a reasonably priced security camera with good quality day and night video capabilities, with a few caveats.  It’s marketed as “DIY zero-configuration”, and it will work fine like that, but if you want to use the “advanced” features, or just like to explore, there are lots of… Read More

Your car’s tires are an integral part of your safety while driving, and responsible adults pay attention to them. But really, checking my tire pressure is way at the bottom of my list of things I want to do.   The Papago GoSafe TPMS 100 (TPMS: Tire Pressure Monitoring System) makes this task easy and much… Read More

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… Read More

When you look at one of your electronic devices; your smart phone, tablet or computer screen, assuming your glasses are clean enough to judge, do you react with an “ewww, gross!”?  I’m embarrassed to confess that I do.  Judging by the smudge prints on everything I own you’d think I’m channeling my inner sticky-fingered three-year-old. … Read More

Is it possible to get any lazier? I found a way.  And it’s good. With the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt I no longer have to find my house key and wiggle it into the lock when my hands are full or I leave the car running.  I don’t even have to remember a combination code. Now… Read More
