Candance Payne’s “Chewbacca mom” video is easily our favorite viral sensation of the year so far. First, it’s hilarious. Second, Payne seems like she’s perhaps one of the most likable people on the planet. And third, her laugh is without question the most amazing and infectious laugh that has ever swept the web. Her video on Facebook now had nearly 142 million views at the time of this writing and if you somehow haven’t seen it yet, here’s a link to watch it and welcome back to Earth.

Of course if you’re like us, you were left with one important question: Where can I get that awesome Chewbacca mask for myself? More →

Find out if breathing might be killing you

Find out if breathing might be killing you

They say everything is bad for something, but there are some things that are bad for us and well within our control. So why not avoid them and live a healthier life? For example, we know that sitting at our desks nonstop all day long is horrible for our health, so we stand up for a minute every hour and move around a bit. Well, here’s something you might not know: The indoor air you’re breathing right now could be up to 8 times more polluted than outside air.

The first step to doing something about it is determining whether or not you have a problem, and that’s where the Foobot Indoor Air Quality Monitor comes in. More →

Dog Seat Belt Harness

The cheapest, easiest way to keep your dog safe in the car

The cheapest, easiest way to keep your dog safe in the car

Look, we get it. Putting your dog in a crazy harness every time you get in the car is a huge pain in the butt. Strapping your pup in when you get in the car is hugely important though. Securing your dog is one thing, but there’s another reason it’s so vital: In the unfortunate event of a crash, a dog that isn’t strapped in could end up running away and getting lost, which is even worse if he or she is injured.

Prevent this scenario without a complicated harness by picking up the Etekcity 2-Pack of Dog Car Seat Belt Straps. One end clicks into your seat belt buckle and the other end has a normal metal hook just like a leash that can attach to any dog collar or harness. Best of all, a two-pack is just $8 shipped. More →

This 64GB flash drive works with your iPhone and your computer

Even if you have a 128GB iPhone, odds are still good that at some point you’re going to run out of storage. Cloud sync services are one way to cut down on the amount of storage you’re using up on your phone, but these services take a painfully long time to sync all of your giant files. Speed up the process and save your bandwidth and battery life as well with the SanDisk iXpand 64GB USB 2.0 Mobile Flash Drive with Lightning connector, which is currently on sale for just $70 shipped.

The first wireless home security camera that’s truly wireless

Wireless home security cameras are great because you can place them anywhere in your home where there’s a power outlet and they’ll connect to your Wi-Fi network and transmit video to any computer, tablet or smartphone. But the Logitech Circle Wireless HD Video Security Camera with 2-way talk brings the term “wireless” to the next level. How? By packing wireless charging support that lets you leave the camera on its dock or pick it up and place it anywhere in or around your home for up to 12 hours before it needs to be charged again.

$7 attachment adds hours of battery life to any Android phone

No matter how big the battery is on your smartphone, it’s never enough. It goes without saying that there will come a time when you absolutely need to use your phone and the battery is on its last legs. Carrying a big portable charger is one way to avoid running out of juice, but carting around a big battery is hardly convenient. Check out the PNY DCM2200 2200mAh 1 Amp PowerPack, a tiny portable battery that fits almost any Android smartphone and adds hours of extra juice for just over $7 shipped. More →

How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6s

How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6s

By on May 19, 2016 at 11:23 AM.

If history is any indication, Apple has no plans of addressing iPhone owners’ two biggest complaints anytime soon. The first is always battery life, but Apple clearly values design aesthetics enough to prevent it from making a thicker iPhone with a larger battery. And as bad as the iPhone’s battery life can be, it certainly doesn’t seem to be hurting sales — despite the recent dip, iPhones are still the best-selling smartphones in the world.

Coming in closely behind battery life is the lack of expandable storage. iPhones are some of the most expensive smartphones in the world but Apple still insists on “encouraging” users to buy more expensive models; 16GB gets you nowhere and it’s only another $100 for 64GB. You could shell out more money for a bigger iPhone, or you could add microSD card support to your current iPhone in just a few seconds like I just did. More →

How To Lose Weight

Brilliantly simple dinner plate cuts 30 calories from your meal

Brilliantly simple dinner plate cuts 30 calories from your meal

Last year I wrote about how I lost 50 lbs in just three months. It certainly wasn’t easy, but I discussed the tools and methods I used to make it happen. Beyond everything else though, the most important realization for me personally was this: weight loss is a game of numbers. Barring certain physical conditions, you will lose weight if you consistently burn more calories than you consume. It’s a wonderfully simple concept but it can be incredibly difficult to maintain, and I discussed several ways I managed to do it.

As the saying goes, “every little bit helps,” and a reader just emailed me a note about a nifty calorie-cutting invention that couldn’t be simpler. More →
