summer giveaway
When you were a kid, summer was a grand time of exploration and adventure. What’s changed? Sure, you have a job, and sure, indoor screens are more captivating than ever — but deep down you’re still a little kid looking to get out there and enjoy the sunshine. The epic Take a Break Summer Giveaway may just provide the tools you need to rediscover your taste for adventure.


What’s in the Take a Break Summer Giveaway? Lots, as it turns out. United By Blue, one of our favorite brands, is contributing a set of camping mugs, two t-shirts, a hoodie, and matching backpack, duffle bag, and travel case. These alone are worth the few moments and clicks it takes to enter the giveaway.

But that’s not all — oh, no, not even close. The giveaway also includes not one, not two, not a thousand, but five pairs of sunglasses from Sunski — the Originals, Headlands, Madronas, Dipseas, and Taravals, to be precise. You can either keep the sunglasses yourself and switch up your style, or you can dole them out to your buds.

Summer requires a nice pair of kicks, right? How about two pairs? Thankfully, shoemaker Forsake has thrown its shoes into the ring, with one pair each of The Pilot and The Mack. Forsake makes strong and stylish shoes that we love, and we bet you will, too.

Peak Design has included some excellent accessories for adventurous photographers: the Slide Peak Edition strap, Leash strap, Cuff wrist strap, CapturePRO camera clip, and Clutch hand strap. With all these straps, you’re bound to keep a firm grip on your camera and capture some breathtaking shots.


The giveaway will also extend far beyond the summer, thanks to a 12-month subscription to Conscious Box. For those who don’t know, Conscious Box is a service that sends a boxful of environmentally responsible foodstuffs, skincare products, and more to your door every month.

The giveaway is 100% free. Well not quite — it might take about 30 seconds to enter your email, name, and birthday. Still, a few seconds for $1,344 in outstanding summer goodies? Worth it! You have until June 22 to enter. Good luck.

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.

A scary sketched Frankenstein monster.

A good scary story doesn't just come to life. It takes great narrative ability and some out-there content. Fortunately, there's a podcast for just that.

Sure, we love a good music podcast, but sometimes you want that eye-opening rush otherwise known as fear. The best horror podcasts reawaken that sense and remind us that not only are humans strange, but some things are just really, really hard to explain. So as the days get a little longer and the darkness of winter subsides, hang on to a bit of that darkness with a good old-fashioned terrifying tale.
