TVs were mostly designed for indoor use, but we get it, sometimes it can be nice to have a BBQ outdoors, have a pool party, and then watch some movies while enjoying the nice outdoors air.

Fitness masks aren’t really a new concept. If you’ve ever seen fitness videos, you might have noticed some people wearing them.

Wearing a face mask for an extended period of time can get slightly uncomfortable.

Due to the size of tablets and laptops, it is obvious that it will never be quite as efficient at cooling compared to a desktop computer that has ample room for larger fans and better airflow.
