To sleep, perchance to dream – or to meditate, with Morphée!
Sleep is big business these days. It’s one of the basic needs we all have in common, yet something we never seem to get enough of. One of the least invasive and time-tested methods for preparing one’s mind for sleep is meditation. 
Morphée is an innovative device that brings meditation right into your bedroom, or anywhere you’re wishing to fall asleep. Especially since it’s non-digital!

We’ve all had moments on long road trips when we needed to pull off the turnpike for a bit and take a few minutes to relax with a video, make an extended phone call, or even check in with co-workers via Zoom. Of course we do have a traditional phone mount in the car, but it’s centrally placed on the dash and not conducive to comfortable hands-free usage during stops. Discovering the Pillow Talk Mobile Pillow from Spice of Life USA was sort of a game changer. It is comfortable, adjustable, and so practical.

If you feel like there is “something in the air” this time of year, it might not be your imagination! People with sensitive lungs and allergies have long had a secret weapon to help them breathe easier at home or in the office: air purifiers. Early models were simple and were basically fans with a filter. For the most part, most of them weren't very "smart." Fortunately, technology has advanced the common air purifier to new levels of comfort, ease of use, and filtering ability. The new ALEN BreatheSmart 45i & 75i Air Purifiers bring the technological advances that elevate their new models to a level not seen before. Read on for our full review.

CES 2022 struck me as an example of “on the other hand.” What I mean by this, is that fellow Mac Edition Radio editor Nancy Burlan and I debated attending CES. On the positive side, she hadn’t been to Las Vegas in years (apart from our numerous visits at the Las Vegas Airport) so we thought it would be fun for her to experience the conference. On the other hand, we had the very real and pervasive fear of catching COVID. Show organizers CTA (Consumer Technology Association) assured CES attendees that everyone involved - workers, attendees, and exhibitors - all needed to show proof of vaccination.

If possible, this year's CES was even stranger than last year's—mainly because it was blended/hybrid instead of all digital. There were plenty of things to talk about regarding CES 2022, but John Mulhern III will stick to the technical ones for this article.
