Tanoshi computers are a perfect school companion for kids @ CES 2021



Tanoshi kids' computersHaving a computer for children went from a nice to have in 2019 to a near necessity in 2020, and that requirement seems to not be slowing down. Of course, not all computers are great for kids. Either they’re too fragile, too easy to use for unapproved reasons, getting into unsafe places, and more. Over the years, kids’ computers have been a thing, but they always focus on very young kids. But, the Tanoshi computers have a wider range of ages.

The Tanoshi computers take some inspiration from the Surface product line, being able to use as both a full laptop or as a tablet. In laptop mode, you get a full hardware keyboard complete with a touchpad and emoji key. For tablet mode, the screen detaches from the keyboard and continues to function as a complete computer. When doing schoolwork, this gives the student the ability to choose where and how to work. After school, they get the ability to take it with them and explore.

The computers feature Android, as opposed to Windows or ChromeOS. With Android, they get access to the Google Play Store, but in a limited way. The computer features a robust parental control system, so parents can approve and deny apps, monitor screen and app use time, set approved usage hours (like turning off at bedtime), and more.

Of course, as a kids’ computer, there are some things that will make the experience better. For example, the durability is impressive. In fact, during the conversation, you can see the screen literally thrown across the room and continue to work. It is also available in a choice of bright colors, which will be appealing to kids.

The Tanoshi 2-in-1 is available for $199, and the new Tanoshi Scholar is available for $299 (with a special at $249 as of this writing). To learn more or purchase one for your family, head to the Tanoshi website.

Chug Plug Battery From Lenmar Charges Your Mac On The Go at CES



ChugPlug_LenmarAirplanes, long car rides, inaccessible plugs in hotel rooms… and your battery is at 15%, with hours of time yet to kill. Chris Davis from Healthtech Weekly interviews Jenny Simpson from Lenmar about solving these everyday dilemmas. Chris was roaming the floor at the International CES conference in Las Vegas looking for the latest and greatest in tech and gadgets with the Tech Podcast Network team. Find out how you can extend your MacBook’s battery life with Chris Davis and the Chug Plug.

The Chug Plug is the first of its kind; an external battery pack for your MacBook. It plugs into the brick portion of the laptop power adapter that comes with your computer and adds about four hours of battery life. The best part is that you don’t need any extra cables. You charge it up with the other side of your Mac laptop’s charging cable.

Presently, the Chug Plug is only available for the 13 inch MacBook Pro, as well as all models of MacBook Air; however, the company is working on producing a larger model to cover the 15- and 17-inch models of MacBook Pro.

The Chug Plug will be available in March for about $159.

Belly-Bean Functional Workplace



Belly Bean One of the biggest problem with laptops is that they get too hot to use on a lap. Many answers to this problem aren’t very stylish and look rather dorky. Belly Bean is a stylish solution for this problem. It looks like a cross between a skate board and a surf board. Belly Bean is made of hard-rock maple and on the back is EVA (Ethylene vinyl acetate) foam, which prevents heat transfer. EVA foam is also used in diving and dry suits.

Belly Bean is a functional workspace large enough for a 17 inch laptop with room left over. It is $49.00 and is available through the Belly Bean Web site. So now you can look great and be cool while you continue to work with a lap top on your lap.

Keyboard covers – You need one!



Keyboard covers, why do you need it?

In case you spill food and liquids on your keyboard?  Sure, but that is NOT why you are going to want the best quality keyboard covers on the market from KB Covers.  You want these covers because they give you all the shortcuts for professional programs such as Final Cut Pro, Aperture, After Effects etc.

I own FOUR of them.  I was so impressed that I ended up ordering them the same day I did this interview with the KB Covers team on the floor at CES.  I especially like the cover that shows all the typical Apple iOS shortcuts.  I am buying a stack of them to give to some of my friends who recently bought their first Macbook.  What better way to learn the new operating system while protecting your laptop from accidental Lattés at the same time?

These keyboard covers are made for Apple products, so PC lovers will have to wait and see if a PC line is on the move.

If you are a touch typist (or working on it) you can get a cover that hides the print on your keys, which is a fantastic way to accelerate your typing skills.  I have been using blank keyboards for years because it keeps my typing skills up to code and it makes it easier when you switch between different languages since the print on the keys only match one language.

3 months ago, I bought a silicone keyboard cover in the Apple store and I hated it.  I don’t remember what brand it was but I threw it away after only two days.  It felt icky and it made it difficult to type.  I have been using the covers from KB Covers for two weeks and I love them.  I bought the covers for the Macbook Pro Unibody, which has the added bonus of also fitting perfectly the small wireless keyboard from Apple.

Check them out!  This is one product I can personally vouch for.
