Acu-Rite manufactures a wireless digital thermometer for you to be able to keep an eye on your freezer and/or refrigerator. The main component is the reader, which features a decently sized LCD screen with two separate readings, one for the minimum temperature setting, the other for the maximum temperature setting. It gives you the ability to set a minimum temperature that the refrigerator can reach, this is to prevent your produce and groceries from freezing. On the opposite end, it allows for you to also specify a maximum temperature to prevent food spoilage. This main unit is backed by a magnet, so you can easily put it on your refrigerator door or any other metallic surfaces for your convenience.
For the readings, this unit comes with two sensors that you can place inside of your refrigerator. Since it is wireless, you do not have to worry about the logistics of how to properly place them into the refrigerator. These sensors are backed by a suction cup and a spring clamp. This way, you can easily place it in various places inside your freezer or refrigerator with little hassle. One thing to note is that since these sensors are placed inside of your cold refrigerator, it might make a lot of sense for you to look into the battery types. For example, alkaline batteries perform very poorly in a cold environment, so it’s better to stick with Lithium or NiCd batteries. You can see more of these great tips at the mini refrigerator zone.
One of the main advantages of using a wireless reader like this is so that you do not have to open up your refrigerator to look at the current temperature reading. This may sound obvious, but it is very cumbersome to actually have to open up the freezer or refrigerator to be able to see the temperature reading. Especially if your refrigerator is having problems with keeping the temperature cold, each time you have to open the door to look at the reading will just be that much worse for it. This is similar to the typical problem with cooking a turkey for your Thanksgiving dinner, where you keep on opening up the oven to check its temperature. The more you do this, the dryer the turkey gets and the longer it takes to cook.

Apple came out with a refresh of the macbook pro! Here’s an extensive macbook pro review of the late 2013 model. I was a windows fan, but I have now become a convert to Apple because it’s much better suited for a software developer, which is what I do for a living.
This new version comes with the Haswell chip, which means that the battery life on this beast is going to be amazing compared to its predecessor. One thing I was disappointed about was that I was hoping that it would be lighter in weight, but that’s not the case. Ah well.
I mostly write for gentlesignal now, so follow me there!
As all smartphone users realize by now, it’s quite costly to pay monthly bills. In order to cut costs, Verizon Wireless launched 2 prepaid plans for people on a budget.
These plans are available for different 3G smartphones that run BlackBerry, iOS and Android operating systems. They offer unlimited texts and talk on 2 data plans: 2 GB for a price of $70 or 500 MB for $60.
While such price points are more pricey compared to T-Mobile, which gives a $30 prepaid plan for “unlimited” data on 3G, although the carrier will throttle connections that go over 5GB per month. T-Mobile’s 3G network, which is based on HSPA technology, was even found to be faster than Verizon’s 3G network.
For those that go over their data allowance within the 30-day period, 1GB of data can be purchased for $20. Adding money to your account can be done up to one month in advance.
Nokia is said to be working on offering a true PureView Windows Phone that will boast a sensor just like the one you can find on its 41-megapixel 808 handset.
The mobile phone is going to be made from aluminum instead of polycarbonate usually found in its Lumia line. Expected to unveil on AT&T at the latter part of the year, the phone with a code-name of EOS will sport a very new look. Also, Nokia is working on its very own Windows 8 tablet which will have a debut this 2013, too.
Our feet endures too much stress. Once people reach 50 years old, the majority have already walked a whopping 75,000 miles — or maybe more than that if you are an athlete or a runner. Thus, it’s so important to buy running shoes that will keep your knees and feet healthy.
Ideally, running shoes should be replaced after running for 400 miles. And you don’t need to worry about how you can keep track of the number of miles you ran because the MilestonePod will do it for you!
This is a tracking device attached to your running shoes and then, it warns you before they wear down that you need to buy a new pair already.
While your running shoes may still look new, running gives them constant pounding which makes the materials worn out and unable to provide protection and support. This significant reduction in absorbing shock often results to injury.
MilestonePod lets you track your mileage so you can replace your running shoes at the right time, not so late (which may cause injury) and not so soon (which is a waste of money).
“Made in the USA.” This is something you do not see all the time on a laptop. The critics of Apple concerned about its manufacturing in China and how employees are being treated will most likely be glad to know that Apple will be investing over $100 million to bring its Mac production in the United States.
Today, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc. confirmed that they are planning to begin manufacturing Macs on its very own soil. However, Apple will still depend on 3rd-party manufacturers to be able to actually make the computers. “We’ll be working with people, and we’ll be investing our money,” Cook said.

Does your kid have 20/20 vision when they wear eyeglasses but still feel not satisfied with how they see? You might find high-definition lenses a great option!
At times, higher-order aberrations may have an impact on your kid’s eyesight, even if their prescription glasses completely correct their farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism. Such aberrations might be caused by the optical characteristics of the eyes or may be due to the optical restrictions of regular glass lenses.
The latest advances when it comes to lens manufacturing have paved the way to the creation of high-definition eyeglasses that correct such aberrations, possibly giving your kid sharper vision than they have ever had before. These glass lenses are created to give sharper vision in any lighting conditions and lessen glare at night.
A lot of brands of HD eyeglasses are now available in the market, including HD versions of progressive lenses and high-index lenses.
Anyone would be greatly impressed by the latest kitchen gadgets offered today. There are super-efficient dishwashers that have the capability of running half-loads with their eco-sensor features optimizing the efficiency of every individual load. You can find intelligent refrigerators that also have sensors enabling them to efficiently operate based on the time and frequency the appliance is utilized in a certain family environment. There are modern dryers and washers that can detect optimal levels of detergent and water to lessen energy and water waste. Innovative ovens and refrigerators have the capability of being run remotely using a mobile phone or internet access anywhere. All you have to do is to leave the food inside the refrigerated oven and if you want to begin cooking, just your oven a text message! And you’re done!
