DJI has just addressed two more issues in an effort to perfect the quadcopter with their latest DJI Mavic Pro Platinum. The Mavic Pro Platinum has an 11% gain in flight time (30 minutes) and a 60% reduction in noise (4dB less). The

A new Nest thermostat has landed, the Nest Thermostat E. Not sure about the name but let’s talk about what is different/new. Not much. The Nest Thermostat E now has a frosted LCD screen, a white bezel, a slightly smaller diameter (3.19 instead of 3.3). It also comes, out of the box, with a pre-set schedule to start saving money right away. TaDaaaaa. ...

This Ocean Wave Projector ($19) is pretty cool. Pretty cool for your next psychedelic party or if you just have a tough time falling asleep. The ocean wave projector creates a relaxing visual display (in dark rooms) on any surface you point it at, mainly the ceiling. There are seven colors and brightness settings.

The resident iRobot a-hole CEO, Colin Angle, recently made a statement that the company may begin selling customers house floor plans. Specifically it mentioned selling to Amazon, Apple, and/or Google. This assumes they are even buyers. Let me back-up a bit. Apparently the newer iRobot Roomba’s scan and map the inside of your home. We all assumed this was just so this robotic vacuum cleaner could navigate the house and contents in a more efficient manner. Makes sense, right? Well in a truly douchey fashion iRobot is now pondering...

Trampolines aren’t just for kids, get your credit card out ASAP.   ...
