Good news Comcast customers. You can now enjoy the fruits of Mesh WiFi Routing.
What is mesh? It’s the new way to connect to the Web in your home. That’s a gross simplification. A better explanation is instead of one router, you in effect have multiple routers through out your home, that all talk to one and other, allowing for better connectivity, less lag and down time. It’s great if you have a big home. It also works well in medium size homes. But it’s not really needed in small apartments, especially those those that are one floor.
The “pods” come from a partnership with Plume and they’re called “xFi Pods”. You can get three of them for $120 and six for $200.
In order to get the Pods and use them, you’ll need to be running one of the newer Xfinity home “Gateway” routers, though most customers seem to have them according to Comcast (15 million of 26 million to be more exact).
The setup is supposed to be dead simple. Just plug it in and you should have better internet..connectivity. That’s of course an assumption and more marketing speak. You can be a judge for yourself by ordering one and letting us know.
That said, there are variety of options on the marketing you can choose from.

Calcium is an essential mineral for dogs and humans alike. It’s responsible for conducting electrical impulses, sending signals, contracting muscles (especially the heart), not to mention keeping those teeth and bones strong.
When dog’s don’t get enough calcium they can suffer the same consequences as us – they need ultimate pet nutrition. Notably the condition rickets (where bones become soft and fragile), muscle twitching, restlessness, stiffness, lethargy, convulsions, and osteoporosis.1
Now, regular canned dog food should contain adequate amounts of calcium. However, like all processed foods, ingredients can also lose their nutritional goodness through processing.
The good news is that this essential mineral is found in so many natural foods. If you’re feeding your pup a raw diet it’s particularly crucial to know what those foods are.
A Note About Phosphorus
Your dog requires more calcium than phosphorus to maintain optimal health and ultimate pet nutrition. But popular foods like boneless meats (especially organ meats) are much higher in phosphorus than calcium.
Traditionally, wild dogs would eat an entire animal which would provide plenty of calcium from the bones of the creature. But today, dog’s aren’t necessarily getting enough bone.
So if you’re feeding your dog a raw diet, adding some bone meal or crushed eggshells can be of help to level up that calcium. 2 But we shall delve into that a little more below.Calcium-Rich Foods That Dogs Can Eat 1....

I’ve had the opportunity to test out one of Vizio’s TVs for the last few months, the 65 inch D65-E0. I’ve come away impressed with it, both with the quality and the sharpness of the image. It’s a full 4K set, with small bezels and a small footprint. The blacks are black, the whites white, and it overall offers an experience I’d have trouble distinguishing from sets that cost considerably more.
VIZIO’s D-Series of HDTVs offer value-minded consumers a wide array of home entertainment options. Picture quality options on various models include HD, Full HD, and even 4K Ultra HD in select models in the 43” class size and above.

Ever wanted to use your phone in the shower? How about your tablet? If you answered yes, you should probably reevaluate your dependence on technology. But there’s finally a solution to make your addiction a little more bearable.
What you see is what you get folks, there ain’t much for me to describe here. It’s a clear shower curtain, made of PVA, with pockets for you to stick your gadgets in. It even includes various pocket sizes to allow you to use tablets or smartphones in a horizontal or vertical position.
In case you are wondering, by the look of it, the thing seems to have 17 pockets to store gadgets. Maybe it’s just me, but that seems a bit overkill, I think 12 or even 9 pockets would’ve been enough.
Unfortunately, It’s currently unavailable on Amazon, but that’s probably a blessing in disguise.

YouTuber and cutlery lover Kiwami Japan shows us how you can take regular pasta and turn into it’s own dicing tool. Now, basically he just hardens some pasta in a knife mold and spends the next 16 months sharpening it on a whetstone, but it’s still a lot cooler than whatever you did last weekend.
Oh, and when you done using you fine Italian cutlery to slice tomatoes for a sauce, you can boil the knife itself for a hearty meal.

This is the Wanle Gamers Console for iPhone, it’s an iPhone case that does double duty as a Gameboy clone with pre-installed games. You know, in case you ever wanted to play a dumbed-down version of Tetris on the back of your $1,000 smartphone.
As you can imagine, the Wanle attaches to your iPhone like any normal case and allows you to select from 10 pre-installed games including Tetris, Tank, Formula One Racing, Snake & Block. And in addition to raised physical buttons, it even comes with a small speaker to playback that glorious 8-bit Tetris theme.
Now, obviously playing Tetris on a super thin, cheap iPhone case isn’t going to be the best version of the game, but it still looks fun. Does anyone remember fun?
It’s available now for a very reasonable $25 and works with all modern iPhones. Sorry Android users, but technically it doesn’t have to ‘fit’ your phone in order to play games, so just grab a roll of tape and make that sucker work for you.

This is the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI, it’s a flash that you attach to your DSLR for better light. Normally, I wouldn’t talk about something so boring. But this ain’t your granddaddy’s boring old flash, this guy’s unique, like your cousin with the hyphen in his name.
This flash has motors that allow it to automatically change its position and direction for the best light at that moment. Depending on the shot you like, the flash can rotate to do things like bounce light off a wall to the side for a softer light.
Now, if automatic isn’t your thing, you can manually adjust the position of the flash, but knowing myself, I’d probably mess up shots so bad the flash would automatically adjust itself anyway.
Now, $400 may seem like a lot, but just think of all the things that cost more than this flash, when you look at it that way, you really can’t afford not to buy one.
