Head Outdoors with Casio G’zone Commando

head outdoors with casio gzone commando g zone
You’re the adventurous sort. Campingsailingbiking–you do it all. So chances are, you’ll need a device that can keep up. The Casio G’zone Commando 4G LTE ($149.99), powered by Verizon Wireless, is one such device. This rugged Android smartphone was designed to withstand harsh climate conditions. Sporting a thick rubber casing, it can resist shock, water and dust. It’s resourceful too. Along with a built-in radio, 8-mega pixel camera and email features, the Commando comes with helpful tools geared for the outdoors:

  • Barometer – provides information on local weather and atmospheric pressure.
  • Earth Compass – displays the distance and direction to landmarks across the U.S. and abroad.
  • Walking Counter – measures your total steps for the day, week or month.
  • Tides – lets you know the current tide at various nautical locations.
  • Thermometer – shows the current temperature, and can compare it to the temperatures of different cities.
  • Sun / Moon – tracks the time of the next sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset.
  • Star Gazer – displays the stars and constellation names.

An interesting feature is the Glove Mode, which lets you use the screen even when wearing gloves. Another plus: the cloud service LiveG helps you create your own personal outdoor map. Keep track of your favorite activities and trekking records. With the pre-loaded social media app G’z World, you can see the location of other G’zOne users and share photos. Be sure to check out the Commando website for more details on design and usability.

The 10 best Amazon Prime original movies to stream today
These incredible Amazon Prime original movies are worth a watch (or two)
best amazon prime original movies report

If you know anything about Amazon (and let's be honest, who doesn't), you probably know it as one of the biggest retailers in the world. As that retail business continues to grow, though, Amazon has also gotten into the streaming game in a major way. There are lots of movies on Amazon Prime movies as well as plenty of shows, but this list is focusing on the streaming films that have been produced by Amazon as a studio. Amazon clearly wants to be a dominant player in Hollywood, in addition to the dominance it already has in the world of retail, and based on this list, it's well on its way.

Because Amazon is such a new studio, all of the movies on this list are quite recent. Hopefully, that means that they feel vibrant and relevant, and will continue to hold up for years to come.

Easy, Intuitive Cleaning with DEEBOT T10 OMNI: Hey YIKO, Vacuum and Mop My Home
ECOVACS DEEBOT T10 OMNI cleaning floors

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS.
Picture this, you've just sat down after a hard day's work, barely have a moment of respite, and your phone rings. It's your mother-in-law and she's going to pay an impromptu visit. Before even hanging up you're wracked by a state of panic. The house is a mess. There's clutter everywhere. It will take forever to organize, vacuum, mop, clean, and get everything else done before she arrives. It's not a fun situation but let's rewind here. If you had ECOVACS' newest state-of-the-art smart vacuum and all-in-one cleaning system, the DEEBOT T10 OMNI, the situation would be barely an inconvenience.

The DEEBOT T10 OMNI has an all-in-one station that handles just about everything you'd need it to, like auto-emptying the dustbin, auto-cleaning the mop attachments, and auto-hot-air-drying the mop. It's the most advanced docking station on the market, but AI is baked into this system at nearly every touchpoint. Intuitive AI voice controls allow you to issue voice commands without moving a muscle. It could be as easy as calling out, "Okay YIKO, start cleaning here!" It knows exactly where "here" is thanks to a built-in voice locator. AI is also leveraged to prevent the spread of granular particles while it's vacuuming, so it won't make a bigger mess. Coupled with sophisticated mapping and object detection, plus a large battery, this thing will just keep going as long as it needs to. If all of that sounds like something you might need, keep reading.
