Vacuum cleaners have certainly come a long way since their early days, and the idea of a robotic vacuum cleaner has certainly made life easier for homes everywhere.

Many of us own more than one smartphone these days, and ride-sharing drivers tend to have a minimum of two in order to keep track of their customers while making sure that they have a backup handset just in case something happens, or they need to call someone during an emergency. Whatever the case is, or if you are simply a smartphone owner, you should still pick up a smartphone car mount. For starters, a smartphone car mount lets you carry out hands-free conversations, and it also provides an avenue for your handset to remain in place while providing directions via a navigation app of your choice rather than sliding all over the dashboard. Kenu has just made life better with the announcement of wireless charger car mounts: the Airframe Wireless and Airbase Wireless. Both of these mounts are Qi-certified, delivering up to 10W of power to compatible smartphones.

Why not make sure that you remain as anonymous as possible while online with the new eBlocker 2?
When it comes to chilling out after a particularly difficult day at the office or a stressful home situation, kicking back in your favorite chair alongside soothing tunes is a special combination that will be able to ease even the most frazzled nerves.

Most of us would know that drones fly and take some rather great looking shots, if you are skilled enough, that is.
