Review of the Apple Watch Series 4 after 8 days of usage. Compares features, design, and functionality against the Apple Watch S3 (& previous generations).
Review of the Omigo Toilet Seat which uses heated water & spray nozzles to clean your undersides after you do your “business.” It’s both easy to install and even easier to use.

Review of the Quilo which is a portable humidifier, evaporative cooler, and tower fan. This gadget really works well if you live in lower humidity regions.
The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom portable Bluetooth speaker is a great, little speaker that provides surprisingly great bass & highs in a small form-factor. This review also covers the Wonderboom’s ability to pair with another Wonderboom for a full, immersive surround sound experience.
If you stare at a monitor for many hours a day, you can suffer from eye strain or eye fatigue. When shopping for a quality monitor, be sure it has technology to protect your eyes. Review of the BenQ EW3270U monitor – 4K, HDR, 32″ diagonal, plus a ton of tech to protect your eyes.
A sit-stand desk offers many health benefits (even burning additional calories when you stand). But finding one that is stable, looks nice, is well designed, and most importantly, easy to raise or lower is critical. The FlexiSpot ClassicRiser Standing Desk converter does a great job! My review tells all about it.

Review of the JBL Soundgear which is an innovative hybrid between a portable Bluetooth speaker and headphones or earbuds. The Soundgear lets you listen to audio almost privately but still hear the world around you using a unique design as it rests on your neck like a collar.
Many of the new flat screen TVs don’t have very good sound. When you have a thin device, it’s hard to put in a good quality speaker. For those situations, an inexpensive Logitech speaker set can make a huge difference. Review of the Logitech Z200 & Z207 speakers.
