If you take a second to really think about it, it wasn’t too long ago when going on the internet involved waiting for the phone line to be free, typing in your user name and password, hearing that horrible dial-up sound, and then feeling a sense of relief when you heard that robot voice say “you’ve got mail.” … [Read more...] about What exactly is the Internet of Things?

The Smart Grill is clearly a luxury product. Asking if it is worth $7,000 is like asking if the Lamborghini Aventador is worth $400,000 – it depends on how passionate you are about outdoor cooking and being on the bleeding edge of technology.

Obviously if you don’t intend to grill much red meat, this grill isn’t for you. If you’re all about steak and hamburgers, this may be the easiest grill you’ve ever used. … [Read more...] about The best indoor grills for 2020
