Allison interviews Jan Greenspan from Nite Ize about a couple of their new products: the Cordcollar and the Steelie Mount System. The Cordcollar is a durable cover to reinforce cable ends where they bend the most to help prevent fraying while providing color coding to help distinguish similar cords and cables. The Steelie Ecosystem is a family of products that make it easy to mount and view your mobile device just about anywhere. Featuring magnetic mounting technology, this two-part ball and socket system creates a hands-free viewing platform with continuously adjustable viewing angles in your car, at home, and on the go. The setting is Pepcom at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. Learn more at https://www.niteize.com/
Nite Ize Taglit might save my life, CES interviews with Mira ovulation monitoring system, Spartan radiation-blocking boxer shorts, Lynky Smart Home Hub and TRAE lamps made by geeks. I also talk about my disappointment with D-Link security on the Omna Webcam and tell you about an awesome new webcam called WyzeCam that’s only $20.
If you’ve been paying any attention to my nonsense over the years, you already know that I exercise a lot. In the mornings I alternate between running along the beach and doing the elliptical at the gym every other day. In the afternoons, I take Tesla for a nice long walk, anywhere from 1-3 miles depending on how many more calories my Apple Watch tells me I need to burn. I’m usually doing around 18,000 steps a day with this routine.
I exercise this much to avoid heart disease (my dad had his first heart attack at age 43), but also so I can eat (and drink) more!
So what’s the problem to be solved, it all sounds great, other than I’ll probably need a knee replacement or two way ahead of most people? The problem is the time change. I’m lucky enough to live where we have a lot of daylight, but in the winter, if I go for my usual walk around 4-5pm, it will be at dusk.
In the last few weeks, I was almost hit by a car. Twice.
