Mother’s Day gadget gift guide

Published

on

Ah, mothers. What do we do without them?

Admittedly, we have all been a pain to our moms at some point in our lives (and maybe until now, most definitely until now). This is the true test of a mother’s undying love — that they tolerate us, after all these years.

This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day, the perfect holiday to show our love and appreciation to our biggest fan despite how sucky we can get/are as people.

Here are gadget gift suggestions for the main women in our lives.

ILIFE V7 Sweeping Robot Home Vacuum – $146.99

This vacuum will do the work for her, not just on Mother’s Day but every day that comes after! This nifty gadget takes the work off your mom’s hands. (Because if you’re not going to do the chores she asked you to do, someone/something has to!)

 

Parrot Flower Pot – PhP 7,990

This smart planter has built-in sensors that can monitor your plant’s needs — sort of like how mothers (without us saying anything) know what’s better for us, even if we never listen.

It also has a “plant sitter” mode, useful for days your mom decides to go on well-deserved vacations (from you). It comes with a free app!

 

Vivo V5 Plus – PhP 19,990

You could stop giving your mum headaches, or you could just document the few times you actually do good and make her happy. This is a great smartphone that will capture your mother’s every smile!

Fitbit Alta HR – $129.95 (PhP 6,479)

Give the gift of health! This fitness wearable will help your mom monitor her sleep, physical activities, and heart rate — which means you have a gauge of how mad she is the next time you do something stupid. It also comes in coral and fuchsia.

 

JBL Pulse 2 Bluetooth Speaker – $99.99

This thing is not only good on the eyes, it’s good on the ears, too! This powerful wireless speaker can drown out your whining, connect via Bluetooth, has 10 hours of play time, and it gives a beautiful light show. It’s splash-proof, as well!

 

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X – $159.99

For the mother who likes her mobile games, here’s a gift that will ensure she can play all the Bejewelled she wants as she ignores more of your spoiled whining.

 

Philips Hue Bloom – $59.99

Something for the home she’s lovingly kept — with no help from your lazy self. Control light settings with your phone and save energy with LED technology.

 

Dyson Supersonic – $494.99

Here’s a top-of-the-line, high-tech hair blower because your mom only deserves the best. (I mean, in theory, but she also has you so…) It has four heat settings, three airflow settings, and a removable filter.

 

HP Sprocket Photo Printer – $129.99

This printer will allow mom to print beautiful family memories (minus all the fights you picked) to decorate the house with! It’s small, compact, and connects via Bluetooth for fuss-free operation.

 

Kindle Paperwhite – $99.99

The perfect device for a mom who loves to read! A single battery charge lasts for weeks; that’s pretty long — almost as long as your mom’s undying patience for you!

Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System – $129.99

Create the perfect cup of coffee for the perfect mother, because honestly, she needs all the energy to deal with your antics all the way into adulthood.

 

Cheers to all the great, wonderful women whose love we mostly don’t deserve (what, with all our millennial whining)! To be a mother is an extraordinary feat, and I could only aspire to be as great a person as my mother is (and, fine, yours too).

Happy Mother’s Day!

Samsung’s new LED light cover is the phone case we’ve always wanted

It lights up with different designs!

Published

on

The newest Samsung flagships have just been announced and they’re all great, but there was one thing that really caught my eye — mostly because it was literally glowing.

Yes, that is the Samsung Galaxy S10 in my hands, and yes, those are actual LED lights on the case. Just so you can appreciate how pretty it is, here’s the LED case in action:

So what exactly is going on here?

Samsung’s LED light case looks and acts like a normal smartphone cover. It comes in blue and white and has a smooth exterior. It’s also pretty thin, considering, and it has a sturdy feel.

Once it’s attached, the LED cover app will appear and you’ll have different LED designs to choose from. You can go for the “Mood lighting” option which was shown above, or…

You can choose LED icons. Just some of my favorites include this beating heart… 💓💕💖💘💞

… and this adorable doggo. 🐶

There are honestly so many to choose from, I’m not even kidding.

It even does a smartphone camera timer countdown…

 

… and just like that I am sold!

Cheers, Samsung! Just when I thought I was over boring smartphone cases, you shove a shiny, sparkling one in my face and I am very, very convinced.

PhoneSoap Go: A portable device that will sanitize your smartphone

It isn’t called PhoneSoap for nothing!

Published

on

That smartphone in your purse can do so much but it also has 18 times more bacteria than the average public toilet. Before we continue, let that sink in.

Before you drop that phone you’re probably reading this article on, know that there’s a way to clean your handset and it doesn’t involve soap and water. Introducing: PhoneSoap.

PhoneSoap Go is the brand’s latest release. It’s a tiny chest that will literally clean your smartphone. It uses UV-C light to kill bacteria on your device. All you do is put your smartphone inside, tap the lightning button, wait 10 minutes for one cleaning cycle, and your phone should be germ-free.

The inside compartment can house your phone, no matter what size. It’s pretty spacious so it can even fit small everyday stuff like keys or wallets. Despite all that space, the PhoneSoap Go is designed for portability. This is PhoneSoap’s smallest device — something you can bring along on trips to make sure your handset is sanitized anywhere you go.

On the back of the chest is a USB-A and a USB-C port. This is because the PhoneSoap Go has a 7000mAh battery built into it. That’s enough for 45 cleaning cycles, or four phone charging cycles.

Yes, I said phone charging cycles. That’s because you can actually use it as a power bank. There’s even a slot for your charging cable so you can charge as you sanitize your phone. That means even if the whole cleaning cycle is just 10 minutes, you can leave your phone plugged in longer. There’s even “acoustic outlets” at the bottom so you can hear phone notifications.

Of course, unless I have a petri dish and some phone swabs, I won’t be able to say definitively that this thing can clean 99.99 percent of bacteria on your phone, as the brand claims. But, I will say that if it does end up sanitizing your phone in any capacity, that’s already a good enough deal considering how dirty these things supposedly are, and how much we’re holding on to them on a daily basis.

But really, more than phone cleaning, what you get is peace of mind. Honestly, my own (many, rotating) devices have been chilling a lot in my PhoneSoap ever since I got it.

The PhoneSoap Go retails for US$ 79.95 and you can get it from their website.
