    I got in on the Pillow Cube Pro right away for their initial Kickstarter and love it. It’s perfect for my beds at my full time and part time spots because the mattresses are super firm with no extra top. However, it doesn’t work for me at home because I sink into our foam mattress topper and it was too thick, bending my neck quite a bit. They’re quite expensive now and if you just measure with all things considered on your bed, it could work.

    Also heard a lot of great things about the Purple Pillow, which is expensive, too.

    for extra chargers/cables or even random stuff like cases or the tile/tracker things?

    Stylus, battery bank, screen protector? should be plenty of things to chose from.

    Wifi at my house sucks. I pay for aft fiber with 1000mbs but I know I'm not getting anything near that with the stock router.

    What's the move with routers now? Mesh system? I see nest wifi is super highly reviewed, anyone have it?

    Is there a thread for this kind of thing? Any recommendations is appreciated.

    I have the Nest mesh system, and it works perfectly. Haven't had a single issue. Super easy setup with their app too.

    Edit: I just have the router and one point covering 2300 sqft on one floor.

    I have the eero 6 Pro. The set comes with three units (a base station and two satellites). Handles my 2 story, 4,300 sq. ft. house just fine, including coverage in the garage and backyard. It’s very user friendly, if you just want an app interface that works and is easy to use. Reviews online suggest people with more networking knowledge may one something with more ability to tweak or whatever.

    I have Nest. Highly recommend. I was paying for 150mbps internet and it sucked ass. Had a DL speed of 10mbps when i ran an internet test

    Now with the Nest I’m running at about 160mbps/DL when I run a speed test and have not had one issue in 6 months

    I have one extra nest WiFi router (snow) if anyone is interested in buying one. I Bought a single refurb unit from target then decided we wanted the two pack with add on point. when I went to return the refurb they told me to just keep it (and refunded me #lifehack).

    Perfectly good unit that’s going to hit fb marketplace/eBay unless someone here is interested. $85+shipping label.

    they’re expensive, but Lululemon in small if you usually wear mediums.

    I also have these and really like them (I’m a similar height and they’re not baggy). Order in medium:

    Got one for the bedroom bc the wife was tired of using her phone. I like the interface but the Android TV Interface on my Nvidia Shield is cleaner. The Chromecast suggests lots of things to watch.

    just bought a Brother MFC-J895DW off Amazon for about $130 and I love it. They’re hard to find now around that price though. Print quality is solid and the scanning is great. Also has a Document feeder which is a bit harder to find at that price point but makes scanning very easy

    If you want avoid being excluded from certain content these days, you cannot have just one TV smart box, you need at least 2 from this list:

    FireTV, Roku and Chromecast.

    and that doesn't even include the 2 best overall devices, Apple TV 4K and nVidia Shield.

    I don't know if toilets have ever been discussed in here but getting an elongated toilet for your big ass is definitely the way to go. One of my toilets broke and I bought a elongated replacement and it's awesome. I'm posting from my other small toilet and I feel like I'm slumming it.
