Forgetting where my car is parked is something that happens to me on a fairly regular basis, which makes the Ecco GPS an enticing gadget to say the least. It is a GPS unit that serves only one function, to reunite you with your vehicle with the bare minimum of legwork.
It only holds three locations, but I only have one car so it sounds alright to me. Ten minutes of use per day will get you two weeks of battery time, and it is rechargeable via USB.

A great way to keep warm as you’re soaking up the incredibly hot sun we’ve been having this week, the Portable Misting Tower does exactly what it says on the tin- it’s a 7’2″ tower which is portable and gives out mist when attached to a regular garden hose. A fine mist of water is sprayed from the top bar, falls on your skin and returns your body temperature from Mercury to Pluto (or at least Earth). Good for BBQ, sun worshiping and even the plants come Autumn!
