Mother’s Day gadget gift guide

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!

Apple has removed free chargers from the Apple Watch

For eco-friendly reasons

Published

on

Three months ago, a spicy rumor made its way across the internet. According to an analyst, Apple will stop shipping upcoming iPhones with a free charger. Naturally, the rumored decision met with a lot of criticism. Now, however, all rumors are gone; Apple has removed free chargers from the Apple Watch.

In the big Time Flies event today, Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE. Though both smartwatches have impressive specs, they will miss one of the most essential accessories for devices: a plug-in charger. Instead of the wired adapter, the device should come with a wireless adapter for wireless charging.

Finally, Apple has confirmed the landmark decision. Announced by Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives, the accessory’s removal comes as part of Apple’s initiative to reduce the company’s environmental impact. The company has previously announced a plan to go carbon neutral by 2030.

Of course, Apple might have other reasons to remove the charger. According to a previous rumors, 5G hardware has considerably upped Apple’s costs across the board. Removing “non-essential” accessories might reduce Apple’s productions costs and might keep prices relatively around the same range. Curiously, the Apple Watch’s titanium and Hermes models will still ship with power adapters, despite the on-paper environmental reasons.

Also, according to a new rumor, Apple isn’t stopping with the Apple Watch. Tech leaker Mark Gurman has hinted that Apple is also removing the power adapter from the iPhone 12’s box.

Unfortunately, Apple did not announced the much-awaited iPhone 12 during the Time Flies event against previous speculation. The company is still set to release the next iPhone generation sometime in the next quarter. If the trend has truly started, you might not see a free charger next month anymore.

IKEA, ASUS ROG launching affordable gaming furniture, accessories

We need a sneak peek!

IKEA ASUS ROG

Another thing to add to the things we didn’t expect from this year but, has left us thinking, “huh, sounds about right.” IKEA and ASUS ROG are partnering to create a line of affordable gaming furniture and accessories.

The IKEA Product Development Center in Shanghai will be developing all 30 products in this line-up. And, if you’re wondering who’s designing these products, you’re in for a treat. IKEA’s designers stacked up on design concepts and critiques from ROG designers, professional gamers, and gaming enthusiasts to really nail down aesthetic, comfort, and functionality.

ASUS ROG set-up

IKEA is happy to be teaming up with ROG to smoothly marry its home furnishing expertise with ROG’s exceptional gaming technology and design.

There’s a catch though. I won’t lie, I was hoping they’d launch their partnership with tantalizing patent designs. But, we’re left with imagination to fully take its course on this one. Design, concepts, and patents of the “affordable gaming furniture and accessories” haven’t officially been released. For now, the most obvious assumption of items in the line-up would be gaming desks and chairs.

What comes up when you look for gaming desks on IKEA

A quick search on IKEA for gaming desks and chairs show decent products to have on anyone’s set-up so we’re looking forward to designs they’ve mustered up with this partnership. The line-up is launching in China in February of 2021 and will be available in the US and elsewhere by October 2021.
