• This Linksys router makes sure none of your WiFi signal goes to waste

    Remember the classic SNL skit, Wake Up and Smile? You know, the one where the teleprompter stops during a TV morning show? Within minutes, the absence of a script devolves Will Ferrell into Lord of the Flies-style insanity. 

    It's hilariously silly…but it's actually an oh-so-subtle reminder that when technology breaks down, it doesn't take long for everyone affected to go savage and lose their damn minds. It's a lot like what happens when the WiFi goes down in the average American home. Hopefully, minus the decapitated weatherman, of course.

    WiFi isn't a luxury anymore. It's essential. And a reliable addition like the Linksys EA7300-RM AC1750 Dual-Band Smart Wireless Router can make sure every member of a household enjoys strong, powerful WiFi to all their devices at all times.

    This router works with any existing modem, providing a connection for up to 10 or devices throughout your home, ranging up to 1,500 square feet. With dual-band WiFi speeds up to 1.7 Gbps, the AC1750 also incorporates Linksys' Multi-User MIMO technology, which works like a dedicated router providing WiFi to multiple devices at once, all at the same high speed.

    Rather than dispersing a wide signal that scatters your abilities in all directions, the AC1750 uses beamforming, which sends a focused signal to each connected device, ensuring a stronger, more reliable link to the web. That eliminates all that buffering that drives everybody crazy so your household can enjoy 4K HD streaming, gaming, and more high-quality, heavy bandwidth activities without every other device suffering.

    Meanwhile, this router gives users top-level control over their signal through the Linksys app. Through the app, you can prioritize devices, lay in parental controls, approve guest access, and more.

    Regularly priced at $99, the Linksys EA7300-RM AC1750 Dual-Band Smart Wireless Router is now 30% off. Plus, when you enter the limited-time only Valentine's Day Sale code, VDAY2021, you can take an extra 15% off your total, making this item available for just $59.49.

  • Save over 70% on a three-year subscription to Windscribe's highly-rated VPN pro plan

    We all know that having the protection of a virtual private network (VPN) to cloak your online activities is basically like adding oil to a car or wearing a warm jacket in the dead of winter. It's optional…but not really. If you don't take the precautions that come with cloaking your identity online, it's not really a matter of if you'll become a victim of cyber crime, but when.

    If you're in the market for this vital coverage, shoppers should always take a close look at the handful of VPN providers that truly raise the game. The best ones don't just secure your web connection and safeguard your IP address. They also pack in other features and protection measures that offer a level of security and protection online that every web user wants.

    Windscribe is certainly one of those elite services, bringing more to the table for subscribers to their Pro Plan than just a robust web shield against any and all prying eyes online.

    As you'd expect from any VPN worth their salt, Windscribe is an absolute beast when it comes to your security, erecting an encrypted connection tunnel that masks your physical location from anyone trying to track your activities. In addition to shaking those trackers and malicious online forces, Windscribe also lets you unblock geo-restricted content worldwide, torrent and share files securely, and never leave any trace or logs while you browse.

    But, those basics are just the start of what a Windscribe VPN account offers. Users also enjoy a full desktop app and browser extension integration, allowing you to access all of your device's defenses through one easy-to-use interface.

    There's the ROBERT feature, a one-of-a-kind customizable domain and IP blocking tool that blocks ads and trackers from appearing on pages you search. It also prevents infections from online viruses, and allows you to build your own block lists and customize the access rules for anywhere you go.

    With its own firewall, built-in hotspot capabilities, ultra-flexible connectivity, and more, Windscribe is an all-around protection solution that goes way beyond a simple VPN. Right now, a three-year subscription to a Windscribe Pro Plan, a $324 value, is now on sale for just $89.99.

  • Get hassle-free, exam-free life insurance coverage in minutes with Bestow

    There's a decent chance that if you're under 40, you've never seriously considered life insurance. With everything happening in your day-to-day life, not to mention, the big wide world at large, that isn't a huge surprise. It is, however, a mistake.

    The average lifespan of an American today is about 78 years old. Of course, averages are averages, because not everybody's journey is the same. And, if your time turns out to be shorter – or, heaven forbid, considerably shorter – than that average, what happens to your spouse, children, and the others who depend on you after you're gone?

    The good news is, that fear doesn't have to be a crippling one. Life insurance is made for just that sad case, and if you're relatively young and relatively healthy, you can make smart, proactive decisions to set up the future of your family at a very low cost.

    Bestow is a fintech company that offers term life insurance without the hassles that bog down that process with most providers. In fact, most customers can apply for up to $1 million of term life insurance coverage as easily as placing an Amazon order. For as little as $16 a month, your policy can help lock up that protection without an interview or a medical exam. 

    Bestow actually makes life insurance so simple that you can get a policy rolling in minutes. Go to the Bestow website and answer five quick questions: your gender, age, height, weight, and zip code – and that will generate an immediate quote, as long as you are between the ages of 21-54 and live in the United States (excluding of New York).

    For example, if you're a healthy 35-year-old man who doesn't smoke, you can potentially get covered for a decade for just $26 per month. You can decide between 10 or 20-year terms and the amount of coverage you need.

    Not only can you nail down up to two decades of life insurance protection while you're sitting on your couch in your pajamas, Bestow also doesn't require needles or a doctor's visit. Bestow applicants never have to take a medical exam to apply. 

    While they can't guarantee everybody is a candidate for coverage, it's virtually impossible to find a quicker, more seamless process for considering life insurance coverage that could help get your loved ones out of a horrible situation in the event of your passing.

    At the very least, a Bestow quote gives you an idea of what it would take to start adulting, like…well, a real adult. At best, it helps offer the peace of mind that could help ensure stability for your family for years, especially if you recently bought a home or welcomed a child.

    You've got medical insurance. You've got auto insurance. Bestow can help make sure you've got the all-important life insurance that can provide that protection for your loved ones that everyone deserves.

    If you're between the ages of 21-54, healthy, and live outside of New York, click the link over to the Bestow website for a free quote. In seconds, you can find out exactly what it will take to create financial protection that can keep your family covered for years.

    Acer C740 11" Chromebook, 1.5GHz Intel Celeron, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD (Renewed) – $138.59; originally $299

    The C740 is the next step in the evolution of the Acer Chromebook, including a feature every user appreciates: an improved battery. With performance that can get 9+ hours of use out of a single charge, you'll always have access to the web and all of your work whenever you need it.

    Acer CB5-311 13" Chromebook, 4GB RAM, 32GB, White (Refurbished) – $229; originally $300

  • These 10 pens aren't like that trusty ball-point you remember – they're better

    When was the last time you sat down and actually wrote something with a pen? Not just an appointment reminder or a three-word note, but an actual written document with sentences and paragraphs and stuff? We're willing to wager that it's probably been a very long time.

    While keyboards and digital devices have pushed physical writing implements to the edge of obscurity, don't consign pens and other such instruments to the trash bin of history just yet. There's a real sense of style, emotion, and control that only comes when a real pen meets actual paper to express thoughts, feelings, and ideas. 

    Right now, you can enjoy that sense of creativity and true passion with one of these offers on unique pens and writing instruments that'll make you nostalgic for another time. At up to 71% off, it's a small price to pay for a virtual time machine right in your hand.

    Sure, it writes like an ordinary pen, but then this Power Pen's got a few extra moves those old Bics never dreamed possible.

    Is a pen really a pen if it has no ink? Omega answers that philosophical question with a resounding "yes" with their line of inkless pens. While there's no reservoir for ink inside, each of these Omega designs features an anodized aluminum body and an axl-metal tip that actually leaves small traces of metal on your page. These grey lines don't smudge or erase, and these pens never need sharpening and don't ever run out.

    The AXL is the sveltest of the Omega models, weighing less than an ounce. Meanwhile, the 2.0 brings a little more heft, filling your hand admirably as you write.

    The Series 4 has more of the trappings of a traditional pen, while the Series 5 improves on that design with a more ergonomic grip and even an accompanying pen holder for your desk. Meanwhile, all four come in a variety of colors, ranging from traditional gold, silver, blue, black, and a fancier rose gold option.

    PenFire Bolt Action Pen – $13.97; originally $39

    Part of the joy of a good pen is the precision of the mechanism that clicks and unclicks your pen into preparedness. Looking sporty with its distinctive rifle sight pocket clip, the Action Pen gets the feel of those mechanics just right with the realistic bolt-action mechanism here that smoothly advances and retracts to securely lock the ink refill in place.

    SyncPen 2nd Generation Smart Pen with Notebook – $149.99; originally $199

    Funded on Kickstarter, this pen has a tiny motion tracker inside, reading everything you write and turning it into digital text on the included 10-inch LCD writing pad.

It even lets you record audio to go with your text.

And when you use the Rite-in-the-Rain notepads, you can literally take notes in a downpour.

  • Roybi is like a kid's favorite robot friend – if that robot was also an AI-driven tutor in almost everything

    For decades in film and TV, we've been tantalized by the idea that one day soon, robots will step up to become a child's indispensable learning and emotional support companion. Thanks to advances in artificial intelligence, we're getting closer to the possibility of that day, although it's hard to imagine a human teacher ever being truly replaced by a machine.

    However, there's a lot to be said for a robot friend that's always available to play with a child, spark their curiosity, and guide their intellectual and emotional understanding of the world around them. 

    The Roybi Educational AI Robot Toy is the next step in that evolution – and it's pretty darn amazing.

    At less than a foot high and cute as a button, don't be fooled – the Roybi is a hyper-sophisticated 1-on-1 friend and private tutor. And, unlike the very real frustrations of remote learning, Roybi offers personalized educational lessons that aren't based around a child staring at a screen all day.

    Once connected via WiFi, Roybi is a wealth of information, offering over 500 age-appropriate lessons designed by experts and certified teachers in 70 different categories, covering everything from food, counting, and money to science, music, and literature. 

    As they progress, Roybi assesses your child's skills and adjusts learning to match their pace. Roybi is also built with facial recognition abilities to not only identify and address your child, but also to read emotional cues to help soothe a kid who's upset or engage the child in conversation if they seem lonely.

    Meanwhile, the Roybi app allows parents to have a direct role in what their child learns. From the app, adults can schedule lessons, pause or play or lessons, or even check in on how things are going through Roybi's internal camera.

    Roybi has won itself plenty of fans, sweeping up accolades from organizations like Time and CNBC, taking home a Mom's Choice award, and being named a 2020 National Parenting Product Awards winner.

    Regularly $299, the Roybi Educational AI Robot is now on sale at almost 40% off, cutting your price on a Roybi to just $187.99.

  • CaptionSaver Pro automatically saves your full Google Meet transcript for the easiest note-taking ever

    Now that we're all way too accustomed to remote video meetings, you're probably noticing some alarming patterns, like how some of your co-workers position their cameras in very funky places. Or how people can't seem to get their technical issues in order, then talk all over each other when they do.

    If you're experiencing video call fatigue, you aren't alone. In fact, almost 40% of those forced to endure video meetings say they're really, really over it. With the novelty gone, it's easy to zone out in a video meeting – and that might mean some important information gets lost in the haze of your disinterest.

    Whether you're having trouble focusing during video meetings or just want to make sure you catch everything that happens, CaptionSaver Pro serves as your automatic notetaker, transcribing everything said in the meeting so you never miss a thing.

    CaptionSaver Pro is a Chrome browser extension that works with the live caption transcription abilities of Google Meet so nothing ever gets past you again.

    With CaptionSaver Pro, all you have to do is go into your Google Meet meeting as usual. The app automatically turns on the caption option, so a full transcript of your meeting starts appearing on your screen. 

    As your meeting progresses, CaptionSaver saves every word uttered right into a handy window in the extension. You can highlight important passages, note exact time stamps, and save selected quotes or even the entire meeting transcript with a single click right to your Google Drive home in the cloud. There's also an option to download the complete text of the meeting as a text document.

    Rather than focusing on taking notes during your meeting, you can instead focus on that hideous sweater one of the participants is wearing…or even the substance of what your meeting attendees are actually saying.

    With more than 200 upvotes on Product Hunt, you can try out CaptionSaver Pro right now with a lifetime subscription at half off the regular price. For a limited time, it's on sale for just $24.99.

  • TourBox Neo puts over a dozen controls into your hands to improve your digital editing projects

    You undoubtedly know at least one mouse hater. While 95% of the computing world points and clicks, there are still those hard-boiled types who live and die by the keyboard and the keyboard only. While many of those devotees were often trained that way as programmers, others just can't stand trying to make ultra-precise cursor placement and action with an often very imprecise mouse.

    And, for those elite-level heavy users, there are even times when the keyboard isn't precise enough. That's where a custom-crafted alternative like the TourBox Neo comes in, a fully programmable editing controller that allows the user supreme control over digital creative tasks that require absolute perfection.

    With a Neo in hand, digital professionals who do a lot of intensive image and video editing, digital drawing, and graphic design, and more get the simplified, optimized use of apps like Photoshop, Lightroom, and other software that they demand.

    While the size isn't intimidating, taking up very little desktop real estate, the surface of the Neo itself might seem like another story. With 11 buttons and three dials, each with their own ergonomically distinct features and appearance, it's easy to feel a little overwhelmed. But, within minutes, expert editors will already notice a difference in how long it takes to complete their editing projects, not to mention, the improved results.

    Whether you're cutting video in Adobe Premiere or drawing digitally with Clip Studio Paint, the Neo has downloadable pre-configured profiles to sync with more than a dozen of the top media creation apps. 

    That allows users to perform operations like changing the lighting or color on an image, shuttling quickly through video, or adjusting brush strokes in an art project with a simple push of a button, twist of a thumb wheel, or toggle of a switch. Each control is also fully customizable so you can reformat which button or dial to perform the operation that feels right for your creative process.

    The TourBox also works for both Windows and Mac operating systems.

    The TourBox Neo will usually cost you about $190, but for a limited time, when you enter the coupon code CREATE10 during checkout, you can save another $10 off the already discounted price. That makes the final cost of your TourBox Neo just $139.99.

  • For Valentine's Day, this grandma will teach you real Italian cooking, one-on-one

    As an expression of your innermost deeply held feelings, Valentine's Day should be one of the easiest holidays of the year. But as any husband, wife or significant other can attest, the Day of Love can actually end up being pretty darn stressful.

    Flowers, candies and the usual expressions of the day are incredibly played out. And, in the age of COVID, even the romantic dinner at a favorite restaurant is largely off the menu this year. So instead, you could serve up an absolutely brilliant, totally unique, yet equally taste-exploding option – a quarantine dinner as prepared by a true Italian grandmother made especially for you.

    For this year's Valentine's Day dinner, a Zoom visit from Nonna Nerina from Nonna Live: Cooking Pasta with Nonna & Family for an unforgettable cooking course will serve up one of the finest culinary holiday feasts you've ever had, outside of Thanksgiving. It would also be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you and your partner would never forget.

    If you've never heard of Nonna Nerina, this quintessential 84-year-old Italian grandmother is just what you think an 84-year-old Italian grandmother would be like. Full of colorful stories and more Italian cooking expertise than most experts will ever know, Nonna has become an Internet sensation. 

    Now, via Zoom, you can join Nonna, her granddaughter Chiara, and her entire family from their little village outside Rome as she gives you a private lesson in cooking one of her signature dishes.

    When you redeem the certificate, you'll set a time for your Zoom class. A week before your session, you'll receive a shopping list of ingredients and access to buy any utensils you'll need. Each recipe is one of Nonna's family specialties, going back more than 100 years – and once she's walked you through the process, you'll even have a list of suggested wine-pairing to enjoy your authentic Italian meal.

    And, even if you're not a huge cooking fan, just spending time with Grandma Nonna is worth the price of admission alone.

    Right now, the price of a Nonna Live Cooking course is a $60 value, but with this deal, it's only $45. Not a bad price for an absolutely priceless Valentine's Day experience.

  • This true 1080p projector brings HD-quality video to your wall-sized picture

    There's been one common complaint that's often a big reason that has kept most projectors in their conference room presentation niche and not breaking out into a true home entertainment showpiece. For all their claims of crystal clear, even HD-quality pictures, many models just can't quite serve up that 1080p resolution that will make home theater geeks chuck their big screens.

    While it's doubtful any projector will ever be able to fully challenge the supremacy of an LED HD-optimized super TV, there are a few that can definitely make users do a double-take…and often, even a triple-take. The Vankyo Performance V600 native LED Projector is just one of those projectors that can virtually do it all – and do it well.

    It's an Amazon's Choice selection for a reason, a reason that shines through when users put the V600 right to the ultimate test – firing it up and checking out the picture.

    Packed with a native resolution of 1920×1080 and a contrast ratio of 5000:1, that helps the V600 serve up images that are 3 times crisper and more detailed than images from a 720p resolution projector.

    While you can't expect that elite level of ultra-vibrant image quality when you dial this projector's picture size all the way up to its maximum 300 inches across, users are still surprised by what the V600 can do. With its intense long-lasting lamps, viewers get remarkable brightness even in well-lit situations, all from a bulb rated to last for over 10 years of daily use.

    The V600 is also ready to serve as the hub of your own personal home theater, including a pair of HDMI ports, one with premium audio capabilities, so you can directly plug in your laptop, smartphone, or other streaming device and make it wall-sized. Add in the dual-stereo speakers built right in and it's a complete multimedia projector to handle any presentation task.

    Retailing for $249, the Vankyo Performance V600 native LED Projector can now join your video constellation at over 30% off, on sale for only $169.99.

  • The LectroSound brings white noise and more to your pursuit of a better night's sleep

    There are a ton of reasons why you may have trouble falling asleep. From environmental conditions to physiological ailments to good old fashioned stress and anxiety, it can often feel like the universe is conspiring against those forced to keep looking at the clock and fearing another night of fractured sleep.

    No matter the underlying root cause, sometimes just setting the proper sleep mood can make a world of difference. That can start with help from something like the LectroSound Sleep and Relax Soothing Noise Machine.

    If you've never tried it, it may seem counterintuitive, but those who swear by white noise and its variants say the sound can work wonders in promoting a full and restful night's sleep. The LectroSound includes a custom-designed analog circuitry that produces a warm, robust non-looping white noise that evens out all auditory frequencies. 

    With those equal intensities, white noise not only masks loud sounds like neighborhood parties or noisy kids, it also helps defuse how your brain focuses, allowing your mind to calm itself and get to sleep easier.

    And, the LectroSpeed is more than just white noise. In fact, this machine is also equipped with other sound spectrums of the color wheel, including pink and brown noise ranges. The range found on the tone dial is fully controllable over precise sonic hues at different frequencies that serve to both ease you into sleep as well as maintain a deeper, more restful slumber. 

    Whether it's the shifting white noise sounds like whirring fans, radio static, or humming mechanical equipment to deeper pink noise ranges like heartbeats or rain to the deepest, lowest frequency brown noises like low roaring or thunder, you can set and adjust the level that hits your particular sleep sweet spot.

    The LectroSound is portable, works with any powered USB port, and you can set the volume level to perfectly set just the right tone for any room.

    Normally, the LectroSound Sleep and Relax Soothing Noise Machine is priced at $39, but with this deal, is now 60% off the regular price, available for just $15.99.

  • This AWS training will help you understand how to make the most of the cloud platform

    Not everything suffers in the midst of a pandemic. In fact, some companies thrived as processes and behaviors changed in the wake of COVID-19. 

    Look no further than the growth of cloud-based computing since the start of last year. According to the State of Tech Spend Report from IT management firm Flexera, After work-from-home orders and other changes put business migration to cloud-based platforms into overdrive last year, that process is expected to continue in 2021, with almost half of all firms saying they expect to spend more on public cloud services this year over last. 

    So if you're eyeing an IT career, there could be no more blaring a signal that it's time to embrace the cloud. That also means embracing its dominant provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS). Right now, The 2021 Amazon Web Services Certification Training Bundle is the ultimate introduction to learning this foundational platform and understand exactly what it takes to run an AWS-hosted network.

    This collection brings together a foursome of insightful learning sessions from catalogs of the IT training experts at Certs School — and it begins with the AWS Technical Essentials Certification Training course. For those who have never dabbled in the cloud before, this is the training where you get a taste of everything available to a network in the AWS ecosystem and the tools you can use to get the most out of it.

    Next, the AWS Solution Architect Certification Training goes deeper into the cloud, explaining the steps for designing, planning, and then ultimately building up a business network while adhering to all of Amazon's best practices.

    The training continues in the AWS Sysops Associate Certification Training as users go further into the nuts and bolts of system operations, including how to manage data moving in both directions through your network, how to put cost controls in place, and steps for optimizing all the tools in the AWS toolbox. 

    To close, users will also get familiar with Puppet, which helps builders automatically build out their IT infrastructure across their entire network. With The Puppet Training Certification course, students are then equipped to better monitor scalability, redundancy, performance, and more all thanks to Puppet.

    The 2021 Amazon Web Services Certification Bundle usually sells for $2,500, but right now, it's available for a fraction of that cost, just $59.99.

  • This desk riser gives you the multi-level space to work that most risers can't

    While makers of desk risers often have their hearts in the right place, they haven't always considered some of the practicalities of standing desk work. Like…if you're standing and staring at a raised computer display on a small riser, do you really want to keep reaching down because the keyboard level only has room for a keyboard?

    Thankfully, FlexiSpot thought it through. And with their FlexiSpot M7C Desk Riser, they've actually crafted a standing desk add-on that takes a real-world workflow into account.

    Unlike other desk converters that feature a keyboard tray level that's barely big enough for a keyboard or laptop, the FlexiSpot doesn't skimp. This keyboard tray extends the full width of the desk for a spacious three feet of space. If you want to keep a mouse, some papers, or even a cup of coffee closer to where your hands will be positioned, this wide, deep tray level is much appreciated.

    Plus, that keyboard tray is even removable, with a quick release, easy one-step attachment and release so you can use or lose the entire level as needed.

    That one-of-a-kind, u-shaped design extends through all your work levels, offering both added room and a sturdier, more stable feel than lesser desk riser models. Capable of extending up to nearly two feet high, you can set your work heights at your optimal position so you can enjoy the benefits of staying on your feet and still working comfortably.

    Rising and folding vertically in its own footprint, the integrated air technology, including the gas spring hovering system, both help ease the riser up and down smoothly with extra support during transition from sitting to standing for added reliability.

    The FlexiSpot M7C Desk Riser with Deep Keyboard Tray retails for $169, but with the current offer, it's on sale at more than 10% off at just $149.99.
