You will not find a better value or buy for this 12-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip at Amazon. I personally own one of these and can attest to its value. The pros – There are 12 outlets with 4 outlets spaced away from the others for those power supply plugs. Low height (thickness). LED light will illuminate when “on” (which may be a nuisance to many). Has excellent review ratings. The only CON I could come up with is that there is no template available for the screw hole mounts. In my case, I avoided the fuss of that and used heavy duty velcro. All-in-All, go for it…
Thanks for visiting! Rick @ What’s On My PC…

You cannot beat the Motorola mid-ranged phones for their build quality and pricing. Here at What’s On My PC, when I buy a smartphone, I go “mid-range” and save myself a big chunk of ching. You will not go wrong with this Labor Day deal… — Rick @ What’s On My PC
I am starting to see more and more of these mini computers. As a matter of fact, I currently use one as my daily computer (ACEPC AK1 Mini PC) and have not experienced any issues thus far; and, have been quite pleased with the performance.
Today, I noticed Amazon has a mini pc deal ($30 off the regular price) that you may want to take a look at (CLICK HERE). If I were buying this, I would research it out further; but, for the price and for what you are getting, this may be a good computer to hook up to that big screen. As I mentioned, I currently own a mini pc (similar to the one on sale) and I have it connected to my flat-screen TV (32 inch) in my garage. — Rick @ What’s On My PC
Check this out… At the time of this posting; Bose SoundSport in-ear headphones for Samsung and Android devices nearly $60 off at Amazon.
Don’t know how long this deal will last, but is worth taking a look at. It is a 512GB memory card. Yes you are reading that right, it is 512 Gigabytes. Make sure, prior to purchasing, that whatever device you want to install this in is compatible and will handle that large of a capacity.
If you are a die-hard Amazon customer, you’ll want an Echo Dot so it agrees with your existing devices (like Fire TV). However, if you don’t have Amazon or Google products, the decision becomes more difficult. If you do find yourself staring at the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Home Mini, wondering which one to take home, it’s Amazon’s Echo Dot that should win the day.
Installing a reliable home security system today can be done easily by YOU and gives you piece of mind knowing you have some level of security in your home… CNET recently tested a range of system models and ended up rating the SimpliSafe Home Security System the “Best DIY System” with an overall CNET score of 8.5.
“SimpliSafe’s easy-to-install, easy-to-use system is well-positioned as one of the best values in home security. It offers a comprehensive set of features, security cameras, and a very good mix of battery-powered sensors, all of which performed reliably well in our tests.” – CNET
After reading the CNET review, I did some legwork for you and found that Amazon sells the Simplisafe system(s) where you can easily select from a 5 piece system to a 12 piece system. Below is an example of the 12 piece system. If you click on the link below, you will see the various system options that you can choose from to meet your personal needs in your home.
It’s Prime time to sit back, relax and watch TV.

The BLACK+DECKER HHVI315JO42 Dustbuster is an inexpensive cordless (lithium battery) handheld vacuum. I have one of these and it is great for cleaning in and around the computer and with the crevice tool attachment you can easily clean the keyboard. I also use this vac to keep up with the cleaning of my vehicles. Run time is about 10 minutes and the power will stay at a constant level for that 10 minutes. That may not seem like a lot, but I can do the inside of my crew cab truck (seats and floor) with power to spare. Very handy vacuum with great suction.
You will find many “indoor” smart plugs, but not many suited for “outdoor” use. The TECKIN Outdoor Wi-Fi Outlet with 2 Sockets solves that problem with its’ weatherproof housing. This smart plug can be controlled with Alexa, Google Home and directly via your smartphone.
Amazon currently is promoting their Music Unlimited with a monthly plan that can be cancelled at any time. With the plan, you get unlimited access to any song, on-demand ad-free access, offline listening with unlimited skips, and hand-free listening through Alexa. Free to try for 30 days. If you love music, this is a good deal…
Being a techie type of guy who loves tinkering and messing around with just about anything, I have found it is necessary to have a flashlight around at all times. If you are like me, carrying a large light is not practical. This is where the Olight I3T EOS 180 Lumens Dual-Output Slim EDC Flashlight comes into the picture. The only thing I can say to make this review, is that this light is a must-have light and is just plain awesome (very portable, very bright, inexpensive). One AAA-battery powers the light and is a good thing in that you don’t have to stand around waiting for it to charge. Just pop in another battery and you are good to go.
The I3T EOS is a slim tail switch flashlight powered by a single AAA battery with a max output of 180 lumens. It is equipped with an excellent LED paired with a TIR optic lens producing a soft and balanced beam. It is also equipped with a dual direction pocket clip for multiple carrying options such as a pocket or backpack strap. The I3T is an incredibly convenient illumination experience to take with you everywhere.
Long Story Short: Buy a cleaning kit made exclusively to clean the screen on your smartphone. Smartphones are not cheap and the last thing you want to do is ruin the screen on your phone. You will see various DIY mixtures, but I have found it is best to get a product that is already packaged in a spray bottle that often comes packaged with a lint-free microfibre cloth. You will not regret it and you will find you will be cleaning and sanitizing your phone more often. Always spray the solution on the cloth and not directly on your phone or other devices.
What you don’t want to do: Due to the special coating on many of these smartphones, do not use household cleaners such as window cleaners, aerosol spray cleaners, solvents of any kind, bleach, ammonia, undiluted alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide.
Where to buy: If you look on Amazon (click here) you will find an array of products made exclusively to clean smartphones. The one that I specifically selected is the WHOOSH! Screen Cleaner Kit. The cleaner is designed to clean eyeglasses, smartphone, laptops, tablets, HDTV’s, and wearable tech, such as smartwatches. The kit is reasonably priced and ships with a large and small (portable) container of the cleaner with Two 6′ x 6′ cloths + BONUS Poo cloth.
I highly recommend this little fan… Rechargeable with long run time. Great for at your computer desk, camping, kitchen, etc… I have one of these and I was surprised by how much air this puts out. The lithium battery in this is removal/replaceable and the fan can run solely off of a USB connection. Also, has a built-in light(s). Over 2300 reviews on this little bugger. Highly recommend…

When is Amazon Prime Day 2019? As predicted, the American retail giant will launch Prime Day 2019 on July 15 and the event will last 48 hours. Becoming more inaccurately named by the year, Amazon have actually added an extra 12 hours of shopping to this year’s Prime ‘Day’. Instead, and for the first time, you’ll be able to hunt for new TVs, video games, laptops, Echos, Kindles, and more over two full days. Last year, Prime Day ran for 36 hours from Monday July 16 to Tuesday July 17. In 2017, the sales extravaganza ran for 30 hours from Monday July 19.

I personally can attest to the value of this mini-fan that works on the principle of more airflow and less noise. I use this fan when camping in my RV and cannot get over the air flow generated for a fan this size; and the good part, in my opinion, the ability to recharge the battery. Currently at Amazon with over 2100 reviews with 73% of those reviews at rating 5.
I came across this bargain this morning and what caught my attention was not only the price but that this outlet (with USB ports) also has a level (900 joules) of surge protection built in. To me, that is huge to find this in this type of outlet.
The Actiontec ScreenBeam Mini 2 is a wireless stick that plugs into an HDMI connection (or port) on your television. It is powered via a USB connection, either by your TV or by the included power block. This device, I rate as “excellent” in giving you the ability to wirelessly mirror what you see on your Android phone onto a TV or projector.
The key to using this device is that your Android phone must have mirroring capability (Miracast), which most of the modern day Android phones possess. In other words, when you get this setup (which is very easy – plug and play) you will be able to see what is on your phone on your TV or projector. This allows you to use your phones data connection to view pics, play games, read the news and stream video, such as YouTube, Hulu, Pluto, etc… I do recommend that you make sure you have an unlimited data connection through your cell service before using this device, which most people do these days. The real feature with Screenbeam is that you do not need a wi-fi connection or router for this to work; instead, Screenbeam wirelessly communicates directly with your smartphone.
Why did I purchase Screenbeam? I have an RV, way out in no man’s land, where I have managed to pull in a high-end 3G data signal using a booster. I use Screenbeam connected to the TV in my RV to stream video from my smartphone. It has literally opened up a whole new world in watching TV during the evenings when I am camping. Anything that I can pull down on my smartphone I can watch on the big screen. Screenbeam, so far, for me, has worked flawlessly.
Cost? The Screenbeam Mini 2 will run you around $40. To me, this an inexpensive device that works very well and would serve you for all sorts of purposes; such as using your phone to project a report or video in a conference meeting scenario or for home entertainment (gaming and movies). The selling point to me was that I can do a direct wireless connection where I do not need a wireless router like you do with the Google Chromecast or Amazon’s Fire Stick; pLus, this thing is very portable.
Where can I get the Screenbeam Mini 2? My recommendation is to purchase it through Amazon (see link below); that way, easy to return if you do not like it, plus you can see the reviews. I can tell you that the Screenbeam Mini 2 is a great device that I am glad (and excited) to have purchased.

The company (Amazon) has not yet confirmed when Prime Day 2019 will be held, but in the last two years, the discount extravaganza has expanded into a two-day opportunity to give your credit card a workout. Prime Day 2018 started on Monday, July 16 at noon PT / 3 p.m. ET and lasted 36 hours. The year before that, it began at 9 p.m. ET on Monday, July 10, and ended at 3 a.m. ET on Wednesday, July 12. So we can probably expect something similar for Prime Day 2019. This being Prime Day, you’ll need to be a Prime member to get the best bargains. If you’re not, it’s free to join for 30 days, after which it’s $119 per year.
