As summer winds to an end in the Las Vegas valley the temperatures are still in triple digits and our pools are warm and absolutely necessary. The fine folks at AIPER offered us a Seagull 1000 Robotic Pool Cleaner at the right time. I spent the last two weeks setting it up properly for my very unusually shaped inground pool, and observing how it works, if it works, and what works. Let’s open the Box. What’s in the Box?  The AIPER Seagull 1000 is shipped in a large box covered with AIPER Seagull 1000 graphics. Inside the box, you will…

July in Las Vegas is hot. So hot we spend half our day in the pool. I usually take my Zenbre Z4 speakers out for my music, but this week our great friends at EarFun sent out a pair of EarFun Air True Wireless earbuds. These earbuds come with a wireless charging case, 4 microphones for extremely clear phone conversations, are IPX7 waterproof, and have touch controls instead of buttons or pips. It’s summer, and we’ve got another coupon offer: 10% OFF coupon on Amazon using Code: EARFUN35 during checkout (while it lasts).  I really enjoyed testing and especially listening…

The world is a different place than it was at CES 2020.  To lighten up the summer and help our readers stay entertained at home we asked our good friends at GooDee to help out.

The BL98 is quite shiny as well as very flexible in terms of connectivity to laptops, game consoles, Blu-ray players, smartphones, and direct play from your storage devices. This projector is bright enough to watch movies outside even with bright city lights. It’s been a long strange trip so let’s open the box! In the Box The…
