The Best Set-Top Box for All Your Binge-Watching Needs

Unless you’ve got a Roku TV or one of the latest premium sets from Samsung or Sony, there’s a good chance you need to invest in a set-top box. Unlike the software built into many “smart” TVs, a set-top box is easy to use. The software and apps are all specifically designed to be operated from the sofa, the remote is typically dead simple, and the array of viewing choices are much broader than what you find built into your six-year-old 720p set.

And for you single-speed/fixed-gear folks, the Park Tool MT-30 has a wrench for removing bolted wheels. Read More >>

The Best Multiroom Wireless Speaker System to Fill Your Home With Music

We’ve spent hundreds of hours over several months using six multiroom wireless speaker systems in every possible room (and even outside) to find the best multiroom wireless speaker system. Though new competition is better than ever, Sonos is still the best for most people. If you want something cheaper, Google Chromecast Audio does a decent job, but you’ll need to provide your own speakers. Read More >>

The Best Smartwatches for People Who Hate Smartwatches

Despite the name, smartwatches can be kind of dumb. Sure, they can do cool things, like control your music and put notifications on your wrist but battery life woes and underwhelming platforms leave you questioning the real IQ of these supposedly “smart” devices. However, there is a road less travelled: an area unexplored by big tech giants, where people can revel in functioning wristputers without being stuck in a technological mire. Read More >>

The Best Nerf Gun for Every Kid (at Heart)

As a child, I strapped a Nerf gun to my bicycle so I could dive bomb the local kids while travelling—I imagined—at five times the speed of sound. As an adult, I’ve carried a foam-firing blaster to no fewer than three jobs. But a funny thing happened earlier this year: I realised my old guns weren’t any good anymore. Read More >>
