When doing math problems on a calculator, you might check and recheck a problem to make sure you have the right answer. If you’ve been pranked with a Wrongulator in the past, chances are you now rework your problem at least five times to make sure it’s right. On the other hand, the appropriately named Redundant Calculator will let you know if your answers are correct two times over.Read More

If you spend a lot of time at your computer, chances are you’ve brought a beverage to your desk on more than one occasion. While there’s nothing wrong with that, there is also a pretty good chance that you have also spilled at least one of those drinks onto your keyboard, mouse, and work sitting out on your desk. This infuriating experience could be prevented with something that will keep your drink from getting knocked over, but does such a…
Today’s smartphones are great for a number of reasons. The least not being that they have a large capacity for holding your media. Of course, some of us have music and video libraries that can’t be contained by the flash storage on our portable devices. Thankfully wireless connections make it possible to keep your media on a computer, and stream it to your phone. All you need is the right software.
When we purchase a docking station, it is normally meant for one type of device that is both size and company specific. While that may work for some of us, there are homes that have more than one brand name floating about their homes. This is why Satechi, who is a leading mobile accessories manufacturer released a compact portable speaker that works with several different types of devices.
Moving out of your parents house is a very freeing experience. You can eat anything you want at any time you want, and make your own day-to-day schedule. There are a few things that hinder this amazing experience though. Not knowing how to cook very many meals or do laundry are usually immediate things you notice, as mom and dad usually took care of all that. While there aren’t robots to do these chores for your just yet, there are…
We all have an excessive amount of things that plug in via USB. It only makes sense that we would need more ports, as no one wants to plug and unplug things a thousand times. The problem being, we also don’t want to have things sucking up energy for hours at a time. That’s why this 12-Port USB Hub from Satechi is perfect for those who need the ports, but want to use them efficiently.
There are some things in life that most of us thought only existed in movies, like those insane gadgets James Bond uses. Virtual reality is one such technology that we still haven’t perfected. But that doesn’t stop companies from using the term very loosely, as with this treadmill.
Keeping backups of your most important data is one of the single most important things to do on your computer. After all, what’s the point in spending all of that time editing photos and composing documents if they just get lost after a hard drive failure? There are lots of programs out there that offer a boatload of features, many of which you won’t use. If you simply want the contents of a folder to be mirrored on another drive,…
Have you ever wondered how much water you use while taking a shower? In any given bathing period, you’ll likely take time to shampoo your hair, wash off, and contemplate issues like world peace. Obviously standing in the shower to think is not such a good thing for our water bill, or the environment. So sometimes you need something to snap you back into reality, other than the hot water simply running out.
Sometimes it’s the little things in life that have the biggest impact. You might be going about your day like normal, and upon seeing one little thing that makes you smile, have a completely different outlook on life. Ok, it may not be that drastic, but it will probably lighten your mood. The way we organize our lives can often be boring and monotonous, which is why The Mark Brothers are a must-have item.
There is a new product in town, and its name is the Zboard. You’ve likely seen motorized skateboards in the past, but I doubt they were as simple to use as this one will be. What started out as a final senior project for Ben Forman and Geoff Larson, turned into three years of development, from which we get to reap the benefits.
When you decide that you want to start losing weight, chances are you’ll want to keep track of each decimal of loss. Not that you’re being overly obsessed, just that you need to make sure you’re losing a healthy amount over time as opposed to dropping it all too quickly. It seems that storing that information is best kept through apps, but should you hit the wrong number when typing in numbers, or forget to type them in, that could…
When you need to search for a file on your computer, you generally know where to look. However, if have a lot of files scattered across various folders, you’re probably going to turn the search feature in Windows. For the most part, this works well enough. It’s far from perfect though, lacking features such as searching for duplicate files of the same size. That’s why you can turn to software like Search My Files.
Some of us was a keyboard that lights up, or has extra buttons for playing games. Then there are others who just want to be able to read the keys. Not everyone has exquisite vision, and for those with less than perfect seeing abilities, the letters on a keyboard can be tiny and hard to see.
We all seem to live in a world that has us on the go or traveling almost constantly. We take time out of each day to read the news, check Twitter, and other things of importance to us. However, it takes time to skim over these things, so why not get a cute robot to read everything aloud so you can multitask?
