Remember the days of the 'clap' light? Clap twice to turn it on and off? 

It was pretty cool technology at the time, but it invariably led to rage when the clapper wouldn't respond. 

Thankfully, we've come a long way since then. With so many devices around the house, it's easy to forget something. That's why a good wireless power outlet can make your life simpler and more economical.

This article is written to review some wifi controlled power outlets, and we'll only be covering the 'best of the best'. For each item I'll be outlining a few things: the pertinent features, any 'need to know' cons, and of course how user friendly it is.

Sound interesting? I hope so!

Having struggled along with a myriad of cheap lamps my whole life, the discovery of eye-friendly LEDs was a revelation. 

They offer a versatility and light quality that standard incandescents and fluorescents just can't touch. They're cheap, safe and incredibly economic. 

Got your attention now?

This article is written to review a few of the best LED desk lamps and lights. I'll be judging each one on merit of the following criteria: light quality, features, ease of use and price tag. 

To make this list, each pick has to score pretty well in all four of those categories. Price wise, they're a step up from what you're probably used to, but if you'll bear with me I'll explain why a good LED desk lamp is worth its weight in gold (figuratively, of course!)
