Can I be honest with you for a second? I’m an Android guy. I’ve always been an Android guy. Ok, ok, I was briefly a Windows Phone guy, and maybe that doesn’t say a lot about my tastes in phones. But I’ve just never been able to stay on iPhone long.
But resident staff writer Danny just might maybe have me convinced to try one more time.

It’s pretty compelling, and I have to admit I have occasionally looked at my wife with jealousy at her ease of finding a phone or her AirPods. Hit up the top story and let Danny convince you.

Nothing’s more disappointing than making a cup of tea or coffee, then getting sidetracked and forgetting about it until it’s cold. Now, thanks to this iconic mug warmer, you can keep your hot beverage, well, hot, all day.
