Purchasing a cool smart home gift

You may consider yourself to be tech-savvy but still find it hard to select a tech gift, especially because the product landscape keeps changing. From the list, what stands out for me is the HiMirror Mini. Not only does this product make sense; it also gives value for money.

The product that stands out to me is the PhoneSoap3 Sanitizer. I hate thinking about all the germs on my phone! Also, the article states the device can used for cleaning other small objects such as money and keys. I think that sounds great. This... See more

I like the sanitizer as well and had no idea such a thing existed. I usually just wipe things down with Lysol wipes, includingelectronics, but I know that isn't ideal.

I've never thought about gifting someone with gadgets, but it's certainly worth considering. Females would probably love the smart mirror. I don't know how effective the sanitary box is as it feels like too much work to put things inside it.

Is an update always a solution to bugs?

Lately, updates seem to happen without letting consumers know beforehand. I think that's why there's so much backlash. They don't realize that the update fixed a security bug or enabled devices to remain compatible, they just know that an app is... See more

Would you choose Dolby Cinema over IMAX?

It has been argued that the former is better than the latter because of the laser light that offers better contrast. In addition, Dolby's 4K is better than IMAX's 2K. Hopefully, we'll soon get to see more Dolby Cinemas across the world.

The phrase "a dual Laser Vision projection system and epic Atmos speaker rig in a domestic space" just sums up what the experience will be like, in a 800-seat auditorium. I am really eager to know the film that will be showing when Dolby Cinema... See more

It is safer to use a more secure way to log in

Google's 2-step verification ensures that no one else can log into your gmail account. I only access my email either through my phone of laptop. Frequently changing your password is another way to properly secure your account.

I know using two party authentication tightens security, but I guess I'm just too lazy to take those extra steps. I also feel uncomfortable giving out my number.

Features you could easily miss in your iPhone

I must admit that I didn't know most of these features actually existed, yet they are the most straightforward tools to use. The Assistive Touch is the one feature that I have recently found to be very useful.

I will be frank here and admit that I am not so curious with what my phone can offer. I have used the Assistive Touch before, even without knowing that there are a lot more things that make the iPhone very unique.
