Dell had released a new 23-inch monitor that includes a couple common, but handy features. This is a full HD, LED backlit multimedia monitor that retails for around $374, which certainly doesn’t make it the best deal you’ll find on just a similar monitor. But, in the UZ2315H Dell has included a built-in 2.0MP webcam and integrated speakers, all optimized for Microsoft Lync.
The Dell monitor has a 178 degree viewing angle, meets the latest regulatory and environmental standards and has a highly adjustable stand and cable management, because you are going to have a couple extra cables connecting up the camera and speakers.
Summer is coming up and along with nicer weather in most parts of the country comes some pesky bugs. While fly-swatters and bug-zappers are effective, sometimes its more mess than we like.
Skell, a start-up company in California, is offering the Bug-A-Salt gun. This nerf-like weapon uses regular table salt to shoot down pesky insects, ideally from 2-3 feet away with a shotgun like pattern of salt. It holds enough salt to support 50 rounds and adds a little sport to the process.
Sony has released a new Bluetooth speaker to add to its vast offering with the SRS-X1. This model is boasted as waterproof allowing you to safely use it poolside, in your boat or even in the shower.
The SRS-X1 is a small sphere at just over 1.5 inches in diameter with a 5W output and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery giving it up to 12 hours of continuous play. As with standard Bluetooth, it has about a 30-foot range and also has a 3.5mm stereo jack if you want to connect it directly.
A gas lighter is almost a must these days for even somewhat frequent grilling or hanging out around the firepit, but even then fires can still put up some resistance. Enter the Bison Airlighter: a butane gas powered lighter that puts out 2600 degrees to start your flames without kindling or paper in under a minute.
In addition to the extreme flame, and not unlike the Looflighter we saw a few years back, the Airlighter blows air with a built in fan to oxygenate your fire and get it going faster. Bison even included a front-facing flashlight and a bottle opener on the bottom.
The lighter is refillable with a standard butane canister and the batteries for the fan can be recharged through a USB port. It appears that the lighter is not quite ready for the retail market but you can …
Yes, please. This is really amazing way to save space in those cluttered kitchen drawers. Yes, you can get some kind of random jar to hold your utensils, but that’s what all of the regular old normal people do.
These are not utensils that someone just glued a extremely familiar shaped brick onto the end of a spatula. Those bricks are actually a part of the utensil. The set comes with the grey base plate, a spatula, ladle and pasta strainer. You can purchase this set for 34.99 here, which we feel is a little bit spendy. But if you are the chef in the house, this may come in super handy and should be well worth the expense.
