This slim cooler, the BevPod, has one job – keeping 10 cans cold. It doesn’t care about your picnic food or two-liter bottles. Just 10 cans. The BevPod Slim Cooler ri s just 3″ tall and easily fits into a backpack, tote, or messenger bag. Or you could use the included shoulder strap. The BevPod uses a wrapping ice-sheet instead of ice for a more compact/neat fit.    ...

Just when I started looking at the Google WiFi System I bumped into the Portal WiFi Router. Both have the ability to use mesh networking for expanding out to dead spots. The main difference, is that Portal uses something called FastLanes which enables your WiFi network to operate in a special portion of the 5GHz spectrum that was originally reserved for weather radio systems....

If you live in a household that doesn’t allow shoes, like mine, you quickly realize some people don’t like taking their shoes off. I’m not going to get into the reasons you should/shouldn’t take your shoes off when coming in from the outside. To each their own. So for the shoeless amongst us… there are two options; take off the shoes, or put on a plastic shoe cover. Shoe covers are great but not the most fun to put on over shoes. Enter the Kwik...

If you have ever wrestled with a cracked or hardened nylon/rubber hose then you know it can be quite frustrating. I had no idea there was such a thing as a stainless steel garden hose unit I bumped into this one. They are available in 25′, 50′, 75′, and 100′ models and are priced fairly. The stainless steel garden hose is made of 304 18 gauge stainless steel and are guaranteed puncture proof. They are also cool to the touch...

Apple isn’t always first to the game with gadgets, but they are often one of the better options. I am sincerely hoping this is the case with their latest entry into the smart speaker arena. Apples latest gadget is the HomePod ($349) which is landing in the US, UK, and Australia in December of this year. The speaker does similar tricks as the Alexa and Google Home speakers but should blow them all away when it comes to sound quality. At least that is the pitch. You simply talk to the speaker like you would with Siri on your iOS...

The folks at Google’s (or Alphabet if you prefer) have come out with a new camera, the Nest Cam IQ ($299).

What’s new with the Nest Cam IQ – More powerful 6-core processor Bigger price tag – $299 (vs $199) Better connectivity Familiar face alerts with Nest Aware (currently it just recognizes if it is...

Let me start off by professing my love of my Ergo Auto Pet Feeder 2000GS (you can read that review here). While it is close to perfect, it isn’t “smart” and doesn’t have remote feeding. With that said it does the job just fine and hasn’t failed me for over 15 years. That says something. Now on to the RolliPet Smart Pet Feeder ($139)...
