Just scooped up a Waterpik Aquarius for Prime Day at $30 off. Had been researching picks recently and that model is pretty much the standard bearer. Nice pickup for those of you who have ever thought about getting a water pick.

I'll most likely be picking up the IP 12. Probably the regular not the pro. I've been with iPhones for a few years so I'll stick with them, I like them for the most part.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

I always had Samsung, usually one of the top versions, edge, note etc
Then I smashed it (as I do, usually every 8-12 months) and someone gave me a RedMi something something

Tell you what, if Samsung is supposed to be better at something, I certainly can't tell.

5-pack of lightning charging cords, 99¢ Showtime and Starz, Powerbank, Bumblebee Transformer, meat thermometer...should really stop there.

I'm considering one of the fancy Dyson heating/cooling/purifying fans. My office is far from the thermostat and always the wrong temp, and I have bad allergies. Anyone have one?

I picked up an Instant Pot Ultra 3QT, because I need something else that won't fit into my kitchen.

I got a couple random ass things. A grow light, some workshop glasses, and a dash cam.

I don't have one but best I can tell from the little bit of research I did a couple months ago....the heater and the purifier will be nice but the cooling part won't be worth much in our climate. Basically it is a glorified humidifier and a nice fan. I think as long as you don't expect it to be your own personal AC in the summer you'll probably be happy with it.

Were you iPhone before? I just don't know if I can leave the world of iPhones due to iMessage, Facetime, Airdrop, etc. Literally everyone I know has an iPhone and the convenience is insane. But the tech/specs of the Note 20 Ultra have me drooling. I'm really torn.

Got it a couple weeks ago. Seems just like all the other ones, but like 5% bigger.

Really don't know how I ever lived without this. Haven't used a toaster or microwave in months. Preheats in 10 seconds. Cooks a 12-14 minute pizza in 7 minutes (again, with 10 second preheat instead of 10 minutes). Makes the best fried food I've ever eaten (once you get to know the exact time and temp for each product). And it tips up when you're not using it so it doesn't take up all that counter space.

Highly, highly recommend.

Thanks. This has been my experience so far. I ended up picking one up yesterday to not miss out on the deal - I'm a Best Buy elite black whatever and have a generous return window, so I figured why not.

The cooling...I mean it does blow cool air, but it's not an AC. And you cannot set a target temperature like you can with the heat. It's just a level of fan blow. And when you get into anything more substantial, it's quite loud.

The heating, on the other hand, is wonderful. The target temp works great, which honestly seems like a small feature but is really quite nice, because target temps on cheaper space heaters are total crap. It also seems to heat pretty evenly.

We're about to move out of the range of when I'd need it to help cool my office, so I'm worried I'm going to fall in love with it as a heater and air purifier and then be disappointed again next spring :D I'll put it through the paces for a few weeks though and see how it goes.

Nope, I've never owned an iPhone. I get new iPads for my daughters every few years for school but I've never been an Apple fan.

I'm gonna dump my Samsung Galaxy S7 for an iPhone 12-mini. I'm not a fan of large phones & the mini has a bigger screen than the S7 in a smaller form factor. Perfect for me.

That's what I have. Still does everything I want so I'll use it until I run it into the ground.
