At the end of every year I like to take a look back at some of the highlights. Things that happened personally & professionally, things I learned, books I read, products I loved, etc. So here is one of those posts.
This year I had the chance to try out a bunch of new products (and some older products). So in keeping with the tradition I started last year, I wanted to take a moment to review some of my favorites from 2018. Not necessarily bleeding edge things, but things that made my life better.
So those are my top picks for this year. I have a handful of other runner-ups such as the Echo Show and Echo Spot, which have been surprisingly good. Seeing Alexa with a screen has made it clear how much better it is being able to interact with voice and with touch. The screen has saved us a couple of times as calendar events have popped up, reminding us we need to get the kids to an evening class. The Eufy Smart Scale is another one. I can’t vouch for the accuracy of smart scales in general, but having it connected to your phone and fitness apps makes things so much easier. And the price on this one is quite reasonable for the quality.
I’ve already started working on potential products for 2019, and am looking forward to reporting back what I’ve found over the next year!
