Your smartphone controls this tiny little dash cam with great big features

We’ve told you time and time again that you absolutely must have a dash cam in your car. Recording all the action as you drive could mean the difference between proving you’re not at fault after an accident and having to cough up thousands over the years when your insurance premium goes up because the other driver refused to take responsibility.

So now you know dash cameras are important, but not all dash cams are created equal. Check out the Goluk T1 Wireless Wi-Fi Smartphone Control Dash Cam, which is available on Amazon for $130. More →

$45 gadget makes you 100 times more accurate than any weather man

How many times have you heard someone make the same tired old joke about how they wish they had a job that would pay them to be wrong all the time just like a weather man on the news? The truth is that predicting weather patterns is incredibly difficult because there are some many variables that can all change in the blink of an eye. Of course, appreciating how hard it is to predict the weather doesn’t make it any less annoying when your local weather man gets it wrong.

Instead of relying on a weather man, check out the AcuRite 02007 Digital Weather Center with Morning Noon and Night Precision Forecast Thermometer, a device that’s infinitely more accurate than any meteorologist because it monitors the weather in real-time at your exact location. More →

Best Carry On Luggage 2016

I traveled with a smart carry-on and I’m never using a ‘dumb’ bag again

I traveled with a smart carry-on and I’m never using a ‘dumb’ bag again

By on July 1, 2016 at 1:31 PM.

Nearly three hours had passed before the realization finally hit me: I left my carry-on in the trunk of the taxi that drove me home from the airport. My laptop, my clothes and everything else I had stuffed into my little Tumi suitcase were no longer in my possession and I had no idea if my belongings would ever be returned to me. I can’t even imagine the look of panic that must have washed over my face.

Thankfully, I got lucky that time. I was the driver’s last fare of the evening and the cab company found my bag in the trunk of his car. But not everyone is so lucky. Baggage loss and theft have always been huge problems in airports, hotels and elsewhere. But as it turns out, there is a solution — and it’s sleeker and more stylish than you might imagine. More →

This is our favorite smart lock

Home automation and security start at your front door. There is no single connected device more obvious and necessary than a smart lock because it makes your life so much easier. No more fumbling with keys because your smartphone controls the lock. And no more worrying about giving a guest or repair man access to your home because you can give them temporary access from their smartphone, or you can even open your door remotely from anywhere in the world as long as your smart lock connects to the internet.

The problem with smart locks these days is that there are so many to choose from, but we have a clear favorite that rises above the rest: The August Smart Lock Keyless Home Entry System. More →

Best Water Filter Pitcher 2016

Brilliant EveryDrop water filter gives you crystal clear water with any pitcher

Brilliant EveryDrop water filter gives you crystal clear water with any pitcher

Water filter pitchers are a fantastic way to enjoy clean, filtered water without spending an arm and a leg, but they have a lot of draw backs. For one thing, they fill sooooooo sloooooowly. The filter portion often also takes up so much of the pitcher that you end up running out of filtered water in no time.

Here’s another option: The EveryDrop by Whirlpool Water DBPIT2M1 PopOut Pitcher System instantly transforms any normal pitcher in to a filter pitcher, and it fills five times faster than the regular water pitcher filters you’re used to. Best of all, it only costs $20 on Amazon. More →

New box from Linksys works with any router and kills your WiFi dead zones

You pay $60, $80 or even $100 a month for internet and it’s gloriously fast. The problem, of course, is that the quality of the internet speeds you actually experience depends on your router and where you are in your home. And if you’re outside in the back yard, you can probably forget about getting anything over 1 or 2Mbps. Check out the Linksys Max-Stream AC1900+ MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Range Extender, which works with any router and extends lightning-fast wireless AC signal to the furthest corners of your property. More →
