$35 is all it takes to dramatically increase your home internet speed

In 2016, there’s pretty much no way you can have home broadband internet in an American household and not have a wireless network set up. After all, with all of the annoying caps your cell phone carrier puts on your data, you need to make sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi at home. That’s fine for smartphones and tablets, but if your computer is also connected to your Wi-Fi network you’re doing yourself a disservice.

For dozens of reasons, home Wi-Fi is never as fast as wired connectivity, but who wants to bother running ethernet ports through their houses? Well it turns out you don’t have to install ethernet to get blazing fast wired internet in your home. Meet the TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit. More →

Best FM Transmitter

X2 lets you stream Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more to any car stereo

X2 lets you stream Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more to any car stereo

We’re approaching a time when car stereos are “smart” and connected, but many people still have old models with sound systems that offer a tremendous number of limitations. We all know that listening to terrestrial radio in the car simply isn’t an option — who wants to sit through 5 minutes of commercials every 8 minutes just to hear the same 12 songs play on repeat? Sirius XM is actually a fantastic alternative, but is it really worth paying yet another subscription each month when you already pay for a service like Spotify? There are even free versions of services like Pandora and Spotify, so why pay at all?

If you have a car without Bluetooth or an aux-in port, there’s still a simple way to stream music, podcasts and anything else you want: Meet the GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Bluetooth In-Car FM Transmitter. More →

Add Wi-Fi to any camera with an Eyefi SD card

The beauty of smartphone cameras is that the instant you snap a photo on your phone, you can share it with the world. With a DSLR or a point and shoot camera, you can capture higher quality photos but the process of sharing them is far more complex. Or is it?

Using an Eyefi SD card simplifies the process tremendously by adding Wi-Fi connectivity to any camera that uses an SD card. And right now, the Eyefi Mobi 16GB Class 10 Wi-Fi SDHC Card is on sale on Amazon for $53.10 with free Prime shipping. More →

Incredible drone will automatically follow you and film your every move as it flies

You’ll never believe what’s about to launch on Amazon: a drone that’s actually a drone! People have taken to calling any old quadcopter a “drone” despite the fact that these fun little devices rarely have the ability to fly autonomously. The AirDog Auto-Follow Drone for Adventure Sports is a completely different beast though. As the name might suggest, this awesome quadcopter can be programmed to take to the skies and fly alongside you automatically, following your every move as you hit the slopes, barrel down a river over white water rapids, or do whatever else it is you want to do and have filmed from the air.

1-day sale: 60% off an ultraportable projector that works with iPhone or Android

Every day we inch closer to a time when we’ll never need to carry a conventional laptop computer with us again. Instead, smartphones and tablets will do everything we could possibly need a notebook PC to do.
