Got text neck? We can help!

Let’s face it. It’s 2017, and there’s no shame in having your smartphone ready at a moment’s notice. From keeping up with friends to responding to work email on-the-go, our devices are essential to our everyday lives. They’re practically an extension of us. However, a phenomena known as text neck has come out of our consistent use of electronics. Text neck comes from our tendency to lean forward from our neck when we’re working intently from our devices, which can put unwelcome strain on our neck and backs. Our phones and laptops aren’t going anywhere, but there are ways to avoid the negative effects of text neck without losing the convenience of our devices. We’ve come up with a list of four ways to counteract it.

iRobot Roomba 980 Review

For Christmas, my brother-in-law bought himself an iRobot Roomba 980. Priced at $899.00, the autonomous robotic vacuum has wheels and rotating brushes that cleans floors, and, well, lives. Upon seeing it, I was skeptical because I am old-school and like to use sweeping/cleaning as therapy...also, I was raised in a home where cleaning is a rite of passage, so I deeply value the cultural tradition that comes with a clean home. Thus, you can understand my skepticism. However, after seeing it in action I was enthralled and charmed by the little robot cleaner.  Read more

My First Experience With Virtual Reality

I’ve never been into video games or known much about how they work. I’ve seen my little brother become obsessed with games whose names I can’t pronounce, while staying up late just to finish one last battle. With that being said, I wouldn’t call myself a gamer. But after using a virtual reality headset, I can say that I am a bit obsessed with this new world -- so much that it compelled me to write about my experience.

The Perfect Camera for Every Kind of Pet Parent

I recently adopted a cat from the SF SPCA, named “Guinevere”, a.k.a “Guinney” or “The Queen.” She’s the first cat I’ve ever owned (I’m generally more of a dog person), but I was sold the moment I saw her. She’s spunky, fierce, stubborn, funny, talkative, curious, protective, and I’m completely obsessed.

Here at Cutline, we’re fans of furry, four-legged friends, as well as the tech that improves our connected care for them. I’m always curious about what she’s up to when we’re away at work, so I like to check on her every once in awhile through a live stream. Check out what I currently use for Guinney, as well as some other awesome cameras to creep on your cats and canines!
