iHome cases

Not a day goes by without someone pitching me a new gadget, app or accessory. I like to think of myself as the wall between those hawking their products and you, my dear readers, who just want to know if something is junk or not.

This week we have the real deal in the iHome line of gadget cases, Skullcandy’s excellent Navigator headphones and a soft drink with a surprise from Tea of a Kind.

iHome cases

The iHome cases – developed by Lifeworks Technology – do exactly what they claim. Their motto is “simplify your life, organize your gear.” These are well-designed, sturdy products that look and feel great.

Since I like to take my home office with me when I leave the house, I chose the Smart Pack. It has plush, protective pockets that fit my tablet, laptop and smartphone perfectly. What’s more impressive are the dedicated pockets for charging cables and headphones.

The cases come in three varieties – Smart Sleeve ($69.99), Smart Brief ($79.99) and the Smart Pack ($99.99).

Skullcandy

Skullcandy Navigator
This set of ear goggles from the well-known Skullcandy brand is a sibling to the popular Aviator model. In fact, it is a reimagining of the Aviator as an over ear model with the benefit of hindsight and new discoveries built into the design.

One of the differences is what the company calls their “custom designed REX40™ driver and our highest-grade lightweight materials – delivering the Attacking Bass, Natural Vocals, and Precision Highs you’ve come to expect in an even smaller and sleeker package.”

I don’t think it’s necessary to capitalize things such as “Attacking Bass,” but the company is correct. These smaller headphones look sharp, feel great and sound even better. I’m a sucker for modern takes on retro design, and these headphones are a perfect example.

The included Mic3 makes the Navigator a good fit for iOS fans. It’s basically the same thing as the Apple remote. You can control volume, play or pause, forward and rewind tracks.

The Navigator runs between $90 and $100 and can be found at http://www.skullcandy.com/shop/headphones/on-ear-headphones/navigator

Tea of a kind

Tea of a Kind
It wasn’t too long ago that convenience stores just carried popular sodas, some milk and maybe one brand of bottled water. Now every 7-11 is lined with coolers offering hundreds of drink choices. How do you choose?

Well, if you’re at all interested in unique drinks with their own brewing system right under the cap, Tea of a Kind is for you.

It’s the first ever beverage to utilize the patented “Gizmo,” a bottle cap design that infuses a drink with fresh ingredients upon opening. In Tea of a Kind’s cap is a proprietary technology called “the Gizmo,” a special pressurized nitrogen chamber that self-mixes fresh ingredients at 90psi upon opening.

It’s pretty cool to watch, and the tea ($2.99) isn’t bad.

Because Tea of a Kind preserves contents in a highly pressurized nitrogen chamber, it doesn’t lose any nutritional value. For example, the Citrus Mint Green Tea flavor tests for over 2000mg of antioxidants.

    • Reheating Rice Can Give You Food Poisoning If You Don't Do This

      Although reheating takeout when you're too busy to cook is one of life's great pleasures, leftover rice can actually be scarily bad for you, the NHS say. Because if you didn't already know, you can get a pretty grim case of food poisoning from eating reheated rice; it's not the reheating that causes the problem, but instead the way the rice has been stored after being cooked the first time. So uncooked rice often contains spores (cells capable of reproducing quickly) of Bacillus cereus — a bacteria strand that can cause food poisoning — that can survive when rice is cooked. And if the rice is left standing at room temperature after it's been boiled, the spores can grow into bacteria, which will

    • Three burglars entered an Oklahoma home. The owner’s son opened fire with an AR-15, deputies say.

      Gunfire rang out Monday afternoon in a home in Broken Arrow, an Oklahoma city 15 miles southeast of Tulsa. Three intruders were killed after the son of the homeowner fired a semiautomatic rifle in what local law enforcement officers later described as an act of self-defense, though their investigation remains open. The intruders — a 16-year-old, a 17-year-old and a man thought to be 18 or 19 — had smashed open the back door of the house, the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement posted to Facebook. Their plan was burglary, authorities said. They wore gloves, masks and all-black clothes, Wagoner County Deputy Nick Mahoney told Tulsa World. Two of the teenagers were armed, one with

    • Reality Contestants Abandoned in Wilderness After Show Is Canceled

      Last week, the 10 contestants who hadn't quit the show emerged from the 600 acre estate where it was filmed to discover what had happened in the last year, including Brexit, Donald Trump becoming president, and the cancellation of their show.  Being canceled wasn't even Eden's only issue. By September 2016, a third of the contestants had decided to leave, saying they were too hungry, or had been bullied by other contestants, or just that the show was not what they thought it was going to be. (For instance, at one point, some of the men were forming a plan called "Operation C--t" to get the women off the show.)

    • NASA just captured a photo of Jupiter that you won’t believe is real

      NASA has managed to capture some pretty stunning photos of all the cool stuff they've spotted over the years, and rarely does it fail to amaze. There's images of planet surfaces, the rings of Saturn, and even black holes flying through space totally unchecked . Rarely, however, does a photo look so unreal that at first glance you'd be likely to mistake it for a work of Earthling art. A new photo captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft falls into that category, and oh what a sight it is. The image, originally taken by Juno's "JunoCam" camera, was taken in early February and shows Jupiter's ever-swirling mass of storm clouds from an altitude of roughly 9,000 miles. The storms which continually rock the planet take on a milky appearance when captured up close, and a citizen scientist named Roman Tkachenko took the liberty of enhancing the photo's colors to bring out even more of the defining lines and edges. The Juno craft, packed with all kinds of fancy monitoring equipment, made its fifth flyby of the planet on Monday, which is also the fourth "science orbit," which is the name they give the flybys when all the instruments on board are up and running. The craft's next flyby won't happen until late May 2017, so it's a rare and exciting event when one of these close passes goes by without a hitch. The craft's data is currently being sent to Earth where researchers will continue to mine it for precious information about our solar system's most intimidating planet.

    • Homeowner’s son kills three would-be burglars with AR-15

      Three would-be robbers were shot and killed Monday when an Oklahoma homeowner’s son opened fire on them with an AR-15, authorities said. Wagoner County sheriff’s deputies were called to the home in Broken Arrow, southeast of Tulsa at around 12:30 p.m. local time. When they arrived, they found the three dead suspects and two uninjured residents. Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects enetered the home through a glass back door with the intent to burglarize it. It was not immediately clear why they picked that home. Mahoney said the suspects encountered the homeowner’s 19-year-old son, who opened fire after an exchange of words. Two of the suspects died in the home’s kitchen
