Valentine’s Day ride

It sounds cheesy but it is Valentine’s Day. You can ride your hoverboard with your significant other and enjoy this day with many laughters. The reason why I say ride the hoverboard is because it is unique date. Many folks will try to get them a chocolate, flower, and nice written card, but they all seem too Serious! Do you know what I mean?

Let’s have some FUN and actually celebrate the day play with each other. Wouldn’t that be the most memorable V-Day? I certainly think so.

Off Road Hoverboard

Are hoverboards a mode of transportation of all surfaces? The short answer is: YES!
But it really depends on which hover board you ride. When hover boards were first introduced
to the public, people loved them. They were used in all different places in the world like mall,
parks, school and even airports. All of which have flat surfaces. That lasted for a short period of
time until people were asking for more from hover board companies.

As of recently, all-surface hover boards have seen a huge jump in popularity. They are
specifically designed to be ridden on all surfaces and in all different kinds of weather. So the
questions asked is, “What makes it possible for a hover board to travel on tougher surfaces?”.
The first aspect of a hover board to handle more challenging surfaces is the size of the
tire. Smaller tires tend to struggle with off road surfaces so it is recommended that you look for
larger tires to handle the surfaces. Standard hover boards have a tire size of 6.5 inches. That
can handle smooth surfaces and maybe some sidewalks. But for grass, gravel and other rougher
surfaces, a tire size of 8.5 inches and higher is recommended. Also, the material of the tire is
important. For normal riding, a solid rubber tire will suffice. But for any other tougher surface, it
is recommended that air-filled tires be used. The traction is far superior for both on and off
road surfaces. The only downside is that you have to monitor the air pressure for all your rides
to ensure safety.

Another important feature an off road hover board should have is a water and dust
resistant board. Riding on different surfaces means your board will have to withstand a lot of
wear and tear. It is important that the board is rated IPX4. The rating shows you that it is
resistant to dirt and water. Another important thing is that you should continually care for the
board. Cleaning it and making sure that all unnecessary objects that may be stuck on the board
will help with the longevity. It is also recommended that you buy a case for the hover board to
avoid drops.

Now, the most important feature when choosing an off road hover board is the motor.
While everything mentioned above is important, the hover board will not go anywhere without
a motor. In order to tackle the rough terrains, you need to have a good amount of power
backing you up. A normal hover board should have a motor of about 200W. But if you want that
extra power, it is highly recommended to go above and beyond that 200W threshold. The
higher the wattage, the easier the hover board will handle any surface.

Are all surface hover boards worth the money you will spend on it? We think so. If you
are looking for longevity in your purchase, then going with the off road variety is the only way
to go. You will get the best of both worlds when it comes to looks and quality.

iPad Pro 2018

Can a tablet really take the place of a laptop? Apple really wants you to believe that with
their latest release of the new iPad Pro. With its elegant looks and tons of power under the
hood, we may be closer to using a tablet as our daily computer than you know.
The new iPad Pro is the most versatile device on the market with its utilization of the
new redesigned Apple Pencil. It also uses USB-C, which may soon be the standard when it
comes to ports.

The iPad looks somewhat familiar but once you hold it in your hands, you will notice a
world of difference. It is sleeker, flatter and has angles that we have yet to see in an iPad.
There is also a spot on the iPad where you can wirelessly charge your Apple Pencil, something
that artists that draw with the iPad have been asking for.

The screen is marvelous! It has a 2732×2049 Liquid Retina display with 264ppi, which is
not that much different than last year’s model but that just proves that there has been vertical
movement in the technology. It also has features such as TrueTone color adjustment and
ProMotion refresh technology.

You will notice a size difference in the new iPad but only because Apple sliced off the
top and bottom with the removal of the fingerprint sensor. It comes in 11 inch and 12.9-inch
models. With that said, Face ID has been added onto this device which you will find in the
iPhone X, Xs, and Xs Max.

With the storage options, we notice that Apple wants us to use this when tackling
photos on Photoshop. It comes with 6 GB of RAM but the entry model comes with 4 GB. We
also have the 1 TB option of space that is near twice as much as provided compared to last
year’s model.

It is also the little things that matter in this device. The sound that comes from the new
iPad is also improved. Each of the four speakers come with a woofer and tweeter which
provides the highest quality of sound. Also, a 12-megapixel camera is attached to the device. I
do not know many people who take pictures with their iPads but Apple has included it just in

The price may scare some people away but know that you are getting the highest
quality for the money. The 12.9 inch model that includes 64 GB of storage starts at $1899. If
you want to start at a more entry price, you can get the 11 inch for $799. Our best experience
bit of advice when trying to decide which option to buy is to go to your local Apple Retail store
and try it out for yourself.

In conclusion, the new iPad is wonderful. There are not a lot of tablets on the market
that can keep up with this beast of a machine. We also see familiarity and may very well be
looking into the future of tablets.

iPhone XR

Shortly after the launch of the pricey new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, Apple has released their new device for everyone with a more budget friendly mindset. It is a phone that tries to meet all iPhone users right smack in the middle when it comes to performance and price. This is the iPhone XR.
Unlike the previous year’s model of the iPhone, Apple has decided to say farewell to the old design with the home button and introduce a new generation of bezel-less phones. The iPhone XR is quite interesting because it aesthetically looks the same but is cheaper. It took the stainless steel framing from the higher quality siblings and replaced it with matte aluminum, which is almost the same as the ones found on the iPhone 8. The XR does have a glass back, just like the Xs and Xs Max but it does appear to be a tad weaker.
The iPhone XR comes in a several bold colors such as yellow, coral, blue and red along with the standard black and white. They all seem to look fantastic but picking a phone that you are going to have to live with for potentially the next two years can be a tricky one. That is why going with the black or white colors may be the safest choice. And if you decide that you are going to be using a case, then get whatever color floats your boat.
The screen is the first ever LCD display to have the rounded corners and the bezel-less design. Apple is calling it the Liquid Retina Display. Despite lacking in the pixel density compared to the Xs and Xs Max, it looks really good. The colors are accurate and the screen pops out at you. The only way to tell that the screen is lower in quality is to compare it to the more expensive OLED models. But for the everyday iPhone users who do not care about those kinds of details, this display will be more than enough.
As far as performance is concerned, the iPhone XR is awesome. It does almost everything the Xs can do, and that is because of Apple’s A12 Bionic chip. This chip increases the performance of the phone by up to 50% in graphics and 15% in processing.
The camera is where most users will see the biggest change compared to the Xs and Xs Max. It has a 12 MP single camera. It can still do things like Smart HDR and Portrait Mode but that is it. It does not come with the telephoto camera like the Xs and Xs Max does thus eliminating the option to do the 2x optical zoom. But it does allow you to take photos and all the blur effects so that is a big plus.
Maybe Apple has finally hit a home run with combining most of the things that iPhone enthusiasts love about their phones and packaging them into one $750 device. Expectations are that this will be a great selling phone so the best way to find out if it is for you is to go and test it out for yourself.

Due to the lightweight design, it may go a little faster than the rider is expecting. But once you adjust yourself to the board, it will become second nature. Another negative that we saw when testing out this hoverboard was that the battery does not last as long as we would have liked.

Apple iPhone Upgrade

On Wednesday, September 12, Apple unveiled their latest iPhones to the world, and even though it was not a groundbreaking design change, it was an intriguing update for those looking to upgrade.

Although it was your typical “S” year, Apple has stepped up their game as far as what is under the hood. They have equipped their new iPhone Xs and Xs Max with the A12 Bionic chip. This upgrade is a huge step up as far as internals and can handle pretty much anything you throw at it. Apple calls it ‘the smartest and most powerful chip ever in a smartphone’ and it is 50 percent faster than last year’s A11 chip. That means that your apps will run faster and whatever you need to get done on your phone, will be accomplished faster than before.

Apple’s new iPhones will also be IP68 water resistant. That means if you accidentally submerge your Xs or Xs Max in water, it will be okay for up to 30 minutes, which is better than the industry standard.

The camera(s) have been upgraded as well. One of the rear cameras is a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera and the other is a 12-megapixel telephoto camera that takes some really gorgeous pictures. Along with the improved cameras come improved True Tone flash that will take any dull picture and make it incredible. The front of the camera contains a 7-megapixel camera that is twice as fast as last year’s model.

The Xs is almost identical in size to last year’s X model, but this year, they have added a bigger model to the lineup. The Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display where the Xs has a 5.8-inch display. Both have OLED displays so the pictures on the screen will be crystal clear. It is understandable to be concerned with the size of the Max model, but if you have ever held a Plus model of an iPhone, it is the same size but with more screen real estate.

The battery has also been upgraded. To compare, the iPhone X had a 2716 mAh battery. The Xs has a 2800 mAh battery and the Xs Max has a 2716 mAh (the largest battery in an iPhone ever). Ultimately, it will increase your battery life for up to 90 minutes, which is great for people who always carry around their phone chargers. Along with the improved battery life, the wireless charging has increased in speed as well.

With bigger and better features comes a bigger price tag as well. The iPhone Xs starts at $999 for the 64 GB model, $1,149 for the 256 GB model and $1,349 for the 512 GB model. With the iPhone Xs Max it gets even higher. The 64 GB model is $1,099, 256 GB goes for $1,249 and the 512 GB goes for $1,449.

So, with all that said, are you going to upgrade? If you have an iPhone X, it may not be worth upgrading since the changes are mainly internal. But if you have an older phone, this is definitely a phone worth upgrading to. We recommend going to your local Apple store and trying it out for yourself.

Hoverboard Battery

If you love your hover board, I’m sure you have been in a situation when you were riding down the street and you hear a beep or some kind of alert telling you that your battery is running low. Though this can be really frustrating, it is bound to happen since the hover board is a battery operated device. Let’s go through how long your battery will last.

If you want to get the most out of your hover board battery, the best way to find out is from the very beginning. When you are in the market to purchase your board, it is best to do your research first before spending your hard earned cash to get one. Some batteries last sixty minutes while others last up to four hours. It really depends on the brand. If you are not in that boat and you already own a hover board but you are disappointed with your battery life, it might not be a bad idea to carry an extra battery on you for those long rides.

So now you have done your research and you may even have an extra battery pack, here are ways to boost the life of your hover board’s battery. Like every electronic, the battery will work extraordinarily well in the beginning but eventually will lose some of its power. You may notice that you have gone hours in your first couple of battery charges but then performance will slowly diminish. Do not worry! This is normal for any rechargeable lithium-ion battery. One way to help save the life of your battery is to not wait until your battery is completely dead before charging it. It is recommended that you stop riding when the power goes just below twenty percent before charging to prevent any issues.

Another way to improve battery performance is to make sure the temperature of your battery is almost always cool. Of course it is difficult to do that since the hover board will heat up the battery, but when not in use, it should be stored in a cool area about room temperature. If it is stored in environments with higher temperatures, it might be dangerous and could potentially cause a fire.

Avoiding overcharges is another way to help improve the life of your hover board battery. It is a mistake that everyone will make and will continue to make. But if you are diligent with keeping in mind that the health of your battery is at stake, then you will remember to not leave the battery charging overnight. You must also remember to unplug your battery and not leave it to be charged for hours after it is at one hundred percent.

In conclusion, the life of your battery is largely based on the brand and model of the hover board and battery. The typical battery will provide you with a good time on your hover board. But you must remember to follow the guidelines listed above to ensure the maximum satisfaction of your hover board experience.

Online Streaming

Who doesn’t like to save money? I know I do. And many Americans are doing just that by cutting the cord. What that means is that they are going to their cable provider and canceling all cable television subscriptions and only going with the internet. So you may ask, “How can I watch my shows with just internet?” I will go into detail about a few ways to watch your favorite shows without paying the heavy fees.

If you like your local television, the easiest way to get those channels is to buy an antenna. There are many antennas on the market that can bring in your favorite local channels, such as NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox and more, in the crystal clear high definition for free. It is easy to set up and a no-brainer if you want to save money.

So, you have your antenna set up. The next thing to do is to order high-speed internet through your internet service provider. You want to have enough speed to support streaming so the minimum for standard definition is 2 Mbps. For high definition in 1080p, it is recommended that you have at least 12 Mbps. Make sure you go above and beyond so that you do not run into any buffering issues.

The next thing you can do is subscribe to premium channels such as HBO, Showtime, and Starz to watch all your favorite movies and exclusive shows. These companies offer different ways to watch their channel such as on your television through an app, on a tablet and even on your cell phone. All you need is internet access.

A way to get the best of both worlds is subscription-based streaming services. Companies such as Hulu, Sling TV, YouTube TV and DirectTV Now are all competing to get your business. They all offer a plethora of channels along with local and premium channels starting at around $40. These too can be accessed on your television via a streaming device such as the Apple TV, Roku or Amazon Fire and can also be played through an app on your tablet and/or cell phone. Thankfully, these companies offer 7 day free trials so the best way to find out what works best is to try them out for yourself.

There are also other subscription-based companies such as Amazon Prime and Netflix that offer exclusive television shows and movies for a low cost. With the rise in popularity in these services, it is almost the norm to have both a streaming service along with a subscription to Netflix and you would still be paying less than you were to the big cable providers.

So there you have it. The future of television is not paying your cable subscriber boat loads of money and being underwhelmed by what you are receiving. The future is the antenna and streaming. Many people around have already adopted this way of living to cut back on the costs so it would be wise to do more research on exactly what is best for you and your family.

Hoverboard for Adults

Who says hover boards are only for kids? Adults can enjoy some time on hover boards but it is very important to decide which one is perfect for you. We have put together a list of three different hover boards and some of their attributes that adults can enjoy.

The first one on the list is the Swagtron T6 Off-Road Hover Board. This board has a blend of high quality along with high performance. The board itself it 10.5×25.7×10 inches and weighs about 32 lbs. It can hold an adult up to 420 pounds. The max speed that this board can reach is about 12 mph, which is on the higher end of speed for those who like to ride fast. It also has an above average battery life which can go up to 12 miles on a single charge. The downsides to this hover board is that it is on the pricier side. It also has a bulkier body which could be inconvenient for people with smaller frames.

The next board on the list is the Halo Rover Hover Board. This is the sturdiest board on the list because it is made with super high quality parts. It 11×8.7×27.5 inches long and weighs about 22 lbs. This board can hold an adult up to 265 lbs. The max speed this board can reach is somewhere between nine to ten miles per hour. The board has some pretty awesome features such as Bluetooth music playback and LED lights. It also can provide a smooth ride on even the roughest of surfaces. Some of the downsides to this board is that customers have complained about the outer casing coming apart. Another negative on this board is the high cost.

The final board on the list is the Bluefin 6.5’ Classic Swegway Hover Board. This board is not meant for everyone because of its smaller wheels. It’s recommended that smaller adults use this board. But Bluefin has really packed a lot of great features in this product. The dimensions are 6×62.23×9 inches and weighs in at 22 lbs. This is the only board on the list that comes in several colors to match the rider’s personality. It tops off at around 6-9 mph. This board also comes with a carrying bag which a lot of boards do not provide. The battery life is superb where you can go around six hours on a short two hour charge. It also features Bluetooth speakers as well. The only downside to this board is that some customers have reported that the charger is not always reliable.

There you have it. The three boards that are highly recommended for adults. The only way to find out which hover board is perfect for you is to go test them out for yourself.
