Riding a bike in Seattle would be a lot more fun if it wasn’t for all of those pesky hills. On flat land, I can zip around and ride a bike for miles. But when I am up against a steep hill, it can be easier to walk my bike than to wear myself out peddling in low gear. I found a high tech solution in a surprisingly affordable product – an electric bicycle from GenZe.
It is a lot of fun to fly a drone, but I have to admit that those first few flights were scary. The DJI Mavic Pro is a complex gadget and it was hard to think about anything other than not crashing it. It took several flights before I felt comfortable with the controls, let alone using it for video and photography.
The HumX gives parents peace of mind about their children’s driving habits and knowledge about the vehicle’s maintenance needs. It is convenient to set up and the reliable, 4G network keeps the kids in the second row entertained.
The Pixel is Google’s latest smartphone and it is packed with smart features that you won’t find anywhere else.
What if I told you there was a better way to charge your devices without wires? That is the promise of Qi wireless chargers, which are quickly becoming the standard for smartphones and other mobile devices. I am in Maui for Christmas (sorry, had to humble brag) and brought along a few Qi wireless chargers to simplify things on the trip.
When you have a household with pets and children, the thought of a magic cleaning genie sounds pretty good. We do our best to keep up on the dirt and pet hair that accumulates in our home, but it always seems like the dirt and hair come back just as fast as we can clean up. This is why I was thrilled to try bObsweep, a magical little sweeping device that loves to keep our house clean.
Battery life really matters when you are traveling or when you are at a conference where power plugs are rare. I decided to bring the new Moto Z Force Droid from Verizon along for my trips and found the phone could last days without a recharge – a remarkable accomplishment considering how much I use my phone.
With Roku’s latest device, the Roku Streaming Stick, you can simply plug the pocket-sized device into an HDMI port to get streaming video wherever you travel.
When mother nature is at its worst, it helps to have an app that you can rely on for accurate information. I use the Storm app for iOS (available on Android as well) to keep tabs on weather conditions in my area.
Pokemon Go continues to capture the hearts and minds of children everywhere. But if you have played the game for a while, you know that it is resource intensive and drains your battery quickly. The game also involves lots of travel in the real world, while you are looking at your phone, which has resulted in several dropped devices.
