9to5Toys Specials currently has the Revogi Smart Color Bluetooth LED Bulb for $35 with free shipping. It is a great price for a multi-colored, energy-efficient bulb.

The bulb connects to your phone (iOS/Android) via Bluetooth, and it can then be controlled through Revogi’s app. The LEDs are capable of producing sixteen million colors, any of which can be selected via a color wheel in the app, and moving the on-screen slider adjusts overall brightness. You can also set up “smart timers” to switch the bulb on or off at certain times of the day — waking up time and sunset, for instance — and the preset “scenes” offer quick access to certain behaviors, such as pulsing to the beat of music. The other major advantage of this bulb is its energy efficiency; it uses 90% less power than a standard bulb in the same socket.

  • Control all aspects of your lights from an easy-to-use app
  • Choose from 16 million color options
  • Easily control the brightness of your lights
  • Set smart-timers
  • Control up to 10 bulbs from the app
  • Enjoy preset “scenes”
  • Use 90% less energy than with traditional bulbs

To light up your home in style, grab the Revogi here.

Review: iOttie’s Active Edge bike mount safely puts your iPhone front and center, exclusive 30% promo code

iottie-active-edge-bike-mount89

Back in January, I found myself becoming increasingly enamored with the idea of making bicycling a serious a hobby. A month later I was the proud owner of a Trek CrossRip hybrid bike, great for riding around town but also for longer trips through the country. As someone that enjoys technology, I quickly looked for ways to make my new hobby a connected experience.

There are a plethora of good apps for iOS that track and record your excursions. I found this to be particularly handy in keeping tabs on my progress as a rider. However, finding a safe, visible spot for my iPhone 6 during the ride proved to be more challenging. The beauty of having all of this data is somewhat lost when your phone is stored away during your ride.

Over the last month, I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with iOttie’s new Active Edge Bike & Bar Mount, which places an iPhone or Android directly on your handlebars. Head below for my thoughts as well as an exclusive 30% coupon code. Read more

Cut the cord in style by adding a TiVO Roamio OTA DVR to your setup for a one-time $300 fee

tivo-roamio-ota-dvrTiVo may not be as popular as it once was during the early part of this century, but the company’s gear is still one of the best ways to watch TV. Late last summer TiVo put out its Roamio OTA DVR system and since then reviewers continually called it the best over-the-air DVR system for cord cutters. However, most of the time that sentiment was followed by harsh criticism of TiVo’s monthly fees.

But now that barrier has been demolished with TiVo’s new pricing structure… Read more

Stock up on MFi Lightning cables w/ Monoprice’s discounted bundles: 3-Pack for $20 shipped, more

monoprice-mfi-lightning-black-2

monoprice-mfi-lightning-black-1

We’ve been swimming in MFi Lightning cable deals over the past few weeks. Amazon typically has the best prices, but free shipping only applies to Prime members and orders of $35. Monoprice consistently has low prices, but shipping usually kills any exceptional deals.

However, Monoprice now has a range of discounted Lightning cable bundles, all of which include free shipping. There are some similarly priced deals on Amazon, but those cable makers aren’t as highly regarded as Monoprice. That being said, now’s the time to stock up on Lightning cables — get one for your car, office, bedroom, family room, etc.
