“Our Favorite Gadgets” A Cool Gadget Guide – It’s For Everyone!
This site isn’t just for young men searching for the latest video game; it’s also for older folks looking to fine-tune their household, professionals seeking a healthier lifestyle, young Moms needing help with infant care, bored children, or teenage girls looking for that perfect birthday gift for their BGF.
How about an awesome home theatre? We set one up in our barn, bought a bunch of inexpensive zero gravity chairs, and invited the whole bunch to movies and popcorn! We have shown some of the classics to our younguns’ (even black-and-white) and had some really great family gatherings that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
Although as adults, we have only a fleeting interest in video games, we have children, nephews, and friends who stay on the cutting edge of the latest games and devices. We promise to recommend only THEIR favorites, not the big company recommendations. Even if what they tell us is cool is cheaper.
Just Google “Health Fitness Devices” and you will be overwhelmed by all the hype and hoopla surrounding literally thousands of new products. Some of them are actually stupid. We don’t want you to waste your money, and so will only recommend truly helpful lifestyle/exercise gadgets.
