In my college years I did a stint of janitorial duties that included quite a bit of floor mopping so the “joys” of using the mop and bucket have scarred me for life.... Many different solutions have been created over the years to get rid of dirty floors.
One specialist purveyor of floor care products, BISSELL, has just brought out the CrossWave, which probably is one of the best arguments to ditch the mop and bucket altogether. And perhaps the vacuum cleaner too!
Like a lot of people that are fairly tall I have always suffered from a bad posture. That is not helped by a mainly sedentary work environment...
Well, now there is an app for that! Coupled with a device that will attach to your lower back which you can calibrate for when you sit perfectly straight, it will signal when you revert back to slouching. It is a training device which you can wear for up to 45 minutes a day to remind your back how great it is to feel straight again!
That’s the theory, but how does it work in practice?
A Network Attached Storage system is a jack of all trades, a Swiss Army knife of interconnected computing, based on a bunch of drives that play nice with just about any computing platform. That is my definition anyways...
But a NAS as a karaoke machine is a bit different. Mind you, it is just another app that will run nicely on this particular QNAP model in addition to the host of other standard NAS applications. So QNAP has done something different to make this machine really sing and dance.
Let There Be Light! From the beginning of creation light was essential for our existence and survival. The trouble is that in our electrical age we don’t give it a second thought: just flip a switch. But what if you’re in the great outdoors, at night in a power outage or in a survival situation?
You want a reliable, rechargeable light that will last a long time and will illuminate a vast distance. It would help if you can vary the output and if, for life-threatening situations, you can blind an opponent with a dazzling strobe light. So essentially, you are looking at a flashlight like the Intimidator from Olight.
Maha Energy, the maker of Powerex and and Imedion batteries have long been a staple in many photographers' bags. Now they have combined the best features of these two lines and launched the new Powerex Precharged line.
Synology launched the DS216j Network Attached Storage (NAS) recently, the successor to the previous year's DS215j. The sleek and modern slim two bay form factor and price tag is aimed squarely at the SOHO, workgroups and small office environments. The previous year's model was well-received by and large, with thanks to Synology, DigitalReviews get to see how the latest revision performs.
I think most of us have watched dashcam videos at some point - Meteorites exploding over a city, crazy drivers on the road, and the occasional aviation disaster just to name a few. There is even a website dedicated to dashcam accident videos. BlackVue was kind enough to ship was a DR650GW-2CH, the successor to the DR550GW-2CH reviewed by us a few years ago. In addition to the camera kit, we also received the Power Magic B-100 kit to go with it.
You could say I am a little late to the dashcam party, the truth is that I was a little slow to the realisation to the potential value. I mean, my beloved Saab did get sideswiped by a taxi while it was parked (no they didn't leave a note and the distinctive yellow and green paint on the paintwork left me no doubts at all). Amongst other not-at-fault accidents, it was eventually written off by having a pretty large branch falling on it. On average I drive between 20,000 to 40,000km a year, thinking back, some of the miraculous near misses on the road would have made for interesting footage. Fast forward many years, let's see what the DR650GW and the B-100 can do together.
