Smart TV’s don’t exist in every household, with many people still using “dumb” TV’s on a day-to-day basis. Up until fairly recently, to get various streaming services (the likes of Netflix, Amazon Video, Google Movies, Now TV, YouTube etc.) onto the aforementioned “dumb” TV, you would have had to have hooked up a laptop/HTPC (Home Theatre PC) to your TV, or suffer poor performance from the streaming sticks of yore. Roku have a great, budget option for TV’s up to Full HD (1080p) resolution: the Roku Express.
The “minidrone” market is incredibly saturated these days. From micro-quads that fit in the palm of your hand, up to those that just about squeeze in your jeans pocket (I’m looking at you DJI Spark), there’s a “minidrone” to fit any size requirement at any budget. Enter the Parrot Mambo Mission, a minidrone with stand-out features amongst a buzz of generic quads.
I purchased the Google Home Mini – Google’s first “hockey puck” sized home assistant, directly competing with the likes of Amazon’s Echo Dot – for my wife for Christmas and we’ve been using it every day for the last month. Google’s offering almost one-up’s Amazon’s, utilising their massive technical capabilities/know-how to provide you with the best day-to-day assistant that you need in your home.
