Braava Jet M6 Review

For the past month, I have had the opportunity to use the Braava jet m6 robotic mop in collaboration with my Roomba j7+ robot vacuum. I have raved about how much I’ve loved using the Roomba, but have always been skeptical of the Braava line of products. A robotic mob? Have we taken things just a bit too far? Let us dive in to the review, and see whether this is a match made in heaven, or something to avoid.…

iRobot Roomba j7+ Review

In late 2019, my wife and I had the pleasure of reviewing the Roomba i7+, a fantastic little robot that was billed as a product that would free us up to do other things rather than vacuum. And with a self-empty system in the charge base, it was supposed to be a hassle free addition to our home. And once we figured out how to properly use the Roomba, it really was. When iRobot came back to us this year…

Screenless Coding – indi is Bringing Coding Fun for Youngsters this September

The concept and importance of STEM - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - is becoming increasingly more popular year over year, and parents are clamouring to find the latest and greatest STEM products, camps, and more for their kids.

Google Nest Hub (Generation 2) Review

When Google first announced the nest hub a few years back, I had to have one for my kitchen - putting it in my room as an alarm clock never really crossed my mind, despite many folks doing it. But then we upgraded the kitchen display to a Nest Hub Max, and well...you can imagine how that was a big improvement with the bigger screen. That ultimately pushed the original Nest Hub to my wife and I's room, and while we liked having that, it started to feel a bit short on features and quality compared to other Google products we were adding to our home (like the ...

How Well Does the Roomba i7+ Handle Cluttered Areas

Our home is just a few short weeks away from being torn apart and opened right up, but until then, Robby the Roomba is zooming around some fairly cramped quarters, most notably in our dinning room. Until today, anytime I sent Robby on a cleaning run in my dinning room, I would lift the chairs up onto the table as I would when I normally vacuumed the room by hand. Today after lunch, I decided to leave the chairs on the floor, and see how Robby navigated this mess.
