Q&A: How can I mark my place so I can come back later to read more posts on your blog?

Question from Diane:  Hi Rick. Maybe it’s just me, but as a fairly new subscriber, I have been going through all your tip pages, one by one. Of course, there’s no way to read all 500 plus pages in one sitting since there are 6 posts on each page, so I’ve been going through a […]

The Best Stainless-Steel Skillets of 2018

A stainless-steel skillet should be your go-to kitchen workhorse, capable of cooking almost anything. Searing, braising, frying, sautéing, and making pan sauces—your skillet can do it all. And if it’s a good one, it should last a lifetime. Because your stainless-steel pan is likely to stick around for a while, it’s reasonable to wonder if it’s worthwhile to splurge on a spendy skillet (or even an entire stainless-steel cookware set). To find out, we chose seven of the best stainless-steel skillets out there at a variety of price points and tasked a trained chef (you guessed it, me!) to put them to the test. I had a ton of fun tossing vegetables and searing steaks, and I found a few skillets that I'd easily recommend as your new, favorite all-purpose cooking tool. Our winner, the All-Clad Stainless Steel 12-inch Fry Pan , proves that pricy pans may indeed be worth the money—but not to worry, we also have a great budget pick if you’re seeking something a bit cheaper. Before we get too deep into our reviews, it's important to note that skillets are different than sauté pans, even though they can often be used for similar tasks. Skillets offer a smaller surface area and have slanted sides, unlike the sauté pan, which has verticle sides.

Q&A: Can I add an HDMI port to my laptop?

Question from Kevin:  I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T520 laptop that I’d like to hook up to a spare 40 inch flat panel TV that I’m not using so I can watch Netflix on a larger screen. The problem is the Thinkpad T520 does’t have an HDMI port and the TV doesn’t have a VGA connector. Is there any way […]

The Best Portable Photo Printers of 2018

While most of our photographs now reside comfortably inside our smartphones or live in the cloud via social media or online storage sites, it’s still nice to have a physical photo you can hang on the refrigerator or put in a photo album. Many options exist for printing photos—from large multifunction printers to kiosks at the pharmacy, but there’s a third option that can produce great images on the go. After testing, we found that the Prynt Pocket is the best portable photo printer offering quality images and the best portability. However, if the printer’s mobility and size are less important to you, we discovered that the Canon Selphy CP1300 creates even better quality prints. Most of the new printers are so small that they can fit in your hand. They produce smaller prints—2x3-inches rather than the standard 4x6-inch or 5x7-inch prints you see on a desktop printer. For today’s selfie-obsessed population, the smaller prints are meant to be shared with friends rather than placed in a photo album. Most of the prints include a sticker backing, so you can stick them to a wall, inside a locker, or other non-adult location. In addition, you can add things like borders, text, and funny stickers—just like you would with Instagram or Snapchat. My kids got mad when I wanted to just print a plain photo. Our list of printers to choose from came down to six models from Canon, HP, Kodak, Polaroid, and Prynt. We included two printers that produce 4x6-inch images since they’re still smaller than the standard-size photo printers. Here are the best small photo printers, in order: Prynt Pocket Canon Selphy CP1300 Kodak Mini 2 Instant Photo Printer Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 SQ Polaroid ZIP Mobile Photo Printer HP Sprocket 100 Kodak Photo Printer Dock

Q&A: Why do drive letters start with ‘C’ instead of ‘A’ in Microsoft Windows?

Review: Dell XPS9360-7758SLV-PUS 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Laptop

Most laptops used to be weak, watered down PCs that sacrificed power for portability, but that’s no longer the case. Today’s modern laptop and notebook computers are plenty powerful enough to do most anything that even the fastest desktop PCs can do. Even as laptops get more powerful by the day, they are also getting […]

Question from Kevin:  For a while now I’ve been using Bitly to shorten my blog post URLs before I post them on Twitter and LinkedIn so I can track the clicks on them. Yesterday I heard that using a URL shortener can cause a website to rank lower in the search engines. Is that true? If it […]

Ipsy is the most popular beauty box of 2018—is it worth it?

Is there anything better than a beauty subscription box? Each month, a pretty package filled with popular beauty products gets delivered to your doorstep. These glorious little deliveries take the guesswork out of shopping for beauty products: Instead, a curated array lands in your mailbox like clockwork. But Ipsy is one of the best-known subscription boxes on the market—each month, you’ll get a keepsake makeup bag filled with five beauty items (some sample-sized, some full-sized) for $10. It’s delivered by USPS to beauty-lovers all over the United States and Canada. With so many beauty subscriptions on the market, how does it stack up? Sure, it's the most popular one of 2018, but is it the best? At Reviewed, we tested the best beauty subscription boxes on the market, including Ipsy. Here's what we found. How does Ipsy compare to other beauty subscriptions? When it comes to beauty subscription boxes, The Big Three are Ipsy, Birchbox, and Sephora Play! They each send out 5 products a month for $10, and require you to fill out a beauty profile for more customized offerings. Products: What you’ll find in an Ipsy Glam Bag is a mix of trendy influencer picks, drugstore products, and a sprinkling of high-end products you might find at Sephora. The quality is middle-of-the-road with just enough luxury to keep your interest piqued: the Ulta of beauty boxes, if you will. Play!, of course, has the most luxurious products, and Birchbox is somewhere between, with an occasional inclusion of natural and indie products. Customization: Before you get your first Ipsy Glam Bag, you’ll answer a 16-question survey with questions about your preferred brands and products, level of expertise, coloring, and skin and hair concerns. Like Birchbox and Play!, each month’s bag is a surprise: you cannot cherry-pick specific items you want in your bag, and they send out many different variations of their bag each month. The one you get depends on availability and your denoted beauty preferences. Perks and benefits: Each month, you can gain points by rating the items in your Glam Bag, referring a friend, interacting with Ipsy’s social media accounts, and more. You can then redeem these points for select beauty products. Ipsy also offers exclusive member discounts and benefits—as an Ipsy shopper, you can buy beauty products directly on the website at a 10-30% discount. Shipping and cancellation: Glam Bags come like clockwork each month, and the website is easy to navigate, with helpful tutorials for each product—but cancelling your subscription with Ipsy is involved and irritating. You must cancel your subscription by 12 p.m. on last day of the month to avoid being charged for the next month’s bag. That’s standard. However, first you must actually find the cancelation page on-site (it's pretty well hidden). Then, Ipsy will email a link that you must follow through to confirm cancellation—otherwise, you’ll be charged. We much preferred Play!’s easy one-click unsubscribe. Is it worth it? Ipsy offers a great way to try new products without much risk, but I will say that at first, I wasn’t particularly impressed by their products. In my first bags, I received selections that didn’t seem to match my denoted preferences (i.e. curly hair, dry skin) and a few complete duds like a shimmery silver eyebrow powder. The quality of products did seem to increase as my subscription wore on, with inclusions from Smashbox and First Aid Beauty, and I loved getting full-sized makeup brushes and fun products like a Lisa Frank themed bronzer. On my last month, I received a Tarte eyeliner, Glossier lip balm, and mermaid-themed highlighting brush— I was sad to cancel my subscription. Overall, Ipsy is a great makeup subscription, whether you’re looking to find a new favorite product, need to stock up on travel-sized cosmetics, or are looking for a great gift for the beauty addict in your life. For $10 a month and the ability to cancel without penalty at any time, it’s a no brainer. Try Ipsy Glam Bag for $10 a month

The Best Air Fryers of 2018

In the past few years, a whole new category of appliances have popped up on store shelves: air fryers. With their promise to cook up crispy yet juicy foods without all that unhealthy fat, they sound too good to be true. Well, we're here to tell you that the best of them can live up to the hype. It's important, however, to choose the right one. To help you spend wisely, we selected seven highly-rated air fryers, as well as two toaster ovens with air fryer capabilities, and put them to work air frying potatoes and chicken. Our winner, the Philips Collection Airfryer XXL , yielded results closest to conventionally-fried food. However, if you’re looking for an air fryer at a much lower price, we found the smaller Krups Air Delight will satisfy your crisp tooth. The Cuisinart Airfryer Toaster Oven is also a great buy if you want an appliance that can multitask. Here are the best air fryers, in order: Philips Airfryer XXL Cuisinart Airfryer Toaster Oven Krups Fry Delight Breville the Smart Oven Air GoWise 8-in-1 Air Fryer XL 5.9 Qt. Power Air Fryer XL Black and Decker 2L Purifry Air Fryer NuWave Brio Digital Air Fryer 6 Quart Oster DuraCeramic Air Fryer
