Most of us fly regularly and need to take along all the essentials to keep ourselves looking good and fresh for several weeks and carry our electronic friends along as well.
That’s requirement Number One: lightweight travel gear so that we can maximise our luggage allowance.
But it also has to be strong, durable and good looking.
That’s why we again looked at Travelon gear for this year’s line-up of different pieces of luggage.
How often do parents check up on their newborns? Most new parents want to be able to check on how bub is doing without disturbing their sleep – or interrupting their own to see if their baby is still sound asleep.
Fortunately, technology can come to the rescue in a very unobtrusive way via the Owlet Smart Sock, a baby monitor that tracks heart rate and oxygen levels constantly and let you know if anything is amiss.
Let’s hear from Karma, one of our writers whose son Asher was born 6 weeks ago.
These are her findings below:
Spoiler Alert: We’re giving you our recommendation first and the reasons why down below.
This Victa 82V Cordless Mower receives our highest praise: the Editor’s Choice Award.
Actually, because the other two Victa products in their 82V range also received our Highly Recommended rating, we would not hesitate to give our Editor’s Choice acclamation to the whole 82V product line because, more than just individual tools, they are a complete system.
So you reckon this Victa can nicely mow your typical suburban front lawn?
Sure, but when you see what else we have subjected this machine to, you’d be convinced that this is one heck of a powerful beast!
Last year we reviewed the Meade ETX 90 Observer telescope which is an excellent unit for people getting serious about wanting to study the observable universe. We liked the build quality and portability of that scope.
This time around Meade sent us the LX 90, which at the AUD4500 price point is a much more advanced unit though similar in design and operation.
The 8" LX90 we reviewed has an 8” diameter f/10 ACF optical system (focal length 2000mm). It’s the smallest in the LX90 series.
Interestingly, this scope incorporates the two features that we would like on every computer telescope: GPS based easy set up and remote access and viewing.
Our anticipation to start imaging the heavens with the optional colour camera as well as with my Nikon DSLR is building as we begin assembling the unit.
Readers of this review site will have seen our previous article on the Victa 82V Rapid Trimmer.
We were/are pretty enthusiastic about that quiet yet very capable unit and even more gushy about the Victa chainsaw in that same 82V product group.
Let me tell you why.
Better yet: I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.
Back in 2008 we reviewed the Homestar PURE and found it to be a great little home planetarium.
This time, we look at its updated big brother, the bigger and brighter, Homestar Original.
Read on for our review.
