Our trusty TiVos can’t be everywhere at once. Sometimes, something great will happen that we didn’t record, and we won’t catch the snappy references at the next day’s staff meeting. For instance, did you see Neil Young sing the “Double Rainbow” song? For missed moments like these, Hulu Plus serves up a massive roster of TV shows and a smattering of movies to quell our pop-culture needs. You’ll be able to quote lines from old favorites--“It’s a floor wax and a dessert topping”--and recent hits. But before you mumble, “I want to go to there,” be warned that Hulu Plus still might leave you out of the loop at that meeting. In spite of the great iPad and iPhone apps, it omits certain episodes and other crucial features.
Do you only get organized after dropping $300 at the Container Store?
Do you work out because you paid your gym membership in advance? If so,
Zeo could be your ideal new obsession. This sleep-monitoring tool is
supposed to chart your nightly patterns and offer advice to improve
your slumber. We think it works for the right audience. But those
improvements come from Zeo’s common-sense tips (and that slightly
guilty sense of needing to get a return on its hefty price) as much as
they do from the technology itself.
