Bedphones help you drift off to sleep with music

When I go to sleep, I like for there to be nothing but ambient noise. Usually I try to keep a fan going, which helps to drown out anything else, such as cars going by, people walking around the house, or music being played. However, some people would prefer to listen to music as they drift off at night. If this is the case for you, but you sleep next to someone that wants silence, you might look into these…

Recover text from web forms with Lazarus

I hate typing in a long-winded response into a comment box or other such text field on a website. The reason for this is that if I hit the ďsubmitĒ button and an error occurs, all of that text is lost. Sure, one can always type it into Notepad or something, then copy it over, but who wants to do that every time they fill out a form? Thankfully there is a handy browser plugin that can help with this….

Learn how to backup your Google data

Over the years, I’ve found myself relying on Google for a lot of different services. While I used them for searching for years, I didn’t really start depending on them until I acquired my Gmail account a while back. Later, when they acquired GrandCentral, they took care of my phone number. These days I would be completely lost without my Google services. And whenever you get too dependent on a company, you need to make a backup plan. In this…

Cook your entire breakfast with one gadget

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, I’m too lazy to make anything more than cereal.

Ninjapins barely leave a trace behind

Moving out of an apartment or a dorm can be a huge pain. You think you finally got everything out and then you have to clean. Problem is, even after you’re done cleaning, you realize that all those posters and whatnot that you pinned up on the wall have now left several, extremely noticeable holes. Unless you intend on filling in the holes yourself, you can kiss part of your deposit goodbye. That’s why Ninjapins would come in quite handy….

Heated Pet Car Seat

We all love our pets to death, but sometimes we have to take them in the car with us. Now in the summer, your cat or dog will roam all over the car if you let them, but the winter is a different story. You can wear a winter coat, but your animal only has the fur on its back to keep it warm. A heated car set for your pet would do the trick, so long as you’re willing…

Recycled Vinyl Record Guitar Picks

There are a surprising number of things you can do with old records. Since the vinyl is easy to heat up and mold, people make all sorts of things with them. The most common to see are bowls, as you just heat one up in the oven while sitting on top of an upside-down bowl. One really cool idea is to turn them into guitar picks. These Recycled Vinyl Record Guitar Picks are brilliant. You’re making music with something that…

If you’ve ever suffered from food allergies, you know how that can cut into enjoying the foods you love. For those who are allergic to dairy or are lactose intolerant, that means no ice cream during hot summer days. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute – creative geniuses that they are – have come up with Lupinesse, a non-dairy ice cream alternative that reports say tastes pretty close to the real thing. Made from the seeds of the blue sweet lupin…
