The Nest Thermostat has become one of my favorite smart home gadgets

Who knew saving energy could be so much fun?

Ever since I picked up my first Google Home in early 2017, I’ve been sort of addicted to making my apartment as “smart” as can be.

The capacity and speed to power up your laptop and phone(s) all day.

I rarely leave the house without a bag filled with technology. At a minimum, it’s a laptop and a phone. Typically, you can add on another phone to that.

MrMobile’s New Favorite Headphones: Sony WH-1000XM3 Review

The WH-1000XM3 is Sony’s newest pair of noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones. In addition to sporting a brand name that only a computer could love, the “Mark 3s” have an industrial design that doesn’t set them apart from their forerunners; they’re leaning heavily on features that have been around for a few years; and they cost $ 350. When my review unit arrived, I felt certain that I’d be longing for my Bose QC35s in no time at all.
