Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System can make anyone a better chef

Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System can make anyone a better chef

One of my favorite Pixar movies is Ratatouille, in which a French chef by the name of Gusteau inspires a rat to become a gourmet cook. Gusteau’s tag line in the film is “Anyone can cook”, but the sad truth is that many people limit themselves to fast food, easy-to-prepare store-bought entrees and the like after having one too many meals turn out undercooked or scorched. The Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System consists of an app-controlled inductive cooktop, an 11-inch “smart pan” or chef’s pot with embedded sensors, and the Hestan Cue app (iOS or Android), all of which work together to make sure that home chefs get the best results every time.

Nebo 2.2.1: Best app for handwritten notes gets better with beta keyboard support (Giveaway)

Nebo 2.2.1: Best app for handwritten notes gets better with beta keyboard support (Giveaway)

Nebo from MyScript is an amazing app that takes advantage of an active stylus like the Apple Pencil or Pencil 2 to turn an iPad into a note-taking powerhouse. We first reviewed Nebo back in 2016, and were so impressed with it that it received a 5 out of 5 star rating and was one of our Top Picks of the year. The app instantly and accurately recognizes handwriting, provides the ability to add diagrams and editable/solvable equations, and more. Nebo just got even better with the addition in Version 2.2 (in beta) of the ability to add text with an onscreen or external keyboard for those situations where it may be faster to type in text than write it by hand. We’re so sure you’ll like the new version that we’re giving away 10 licenses, so be sure to enter our giveaway at the end of this review.

glass+ 360 can protect that Apple Watch (if you’re klutzy like me)

If you’re a sports-playing klutz like me, it’s easy to scratch the screen of your pricey Apple Watch. If you’re playing a team sport, you should simply take it off so you don’t whack someone in the face with it. But, of course, you’ll want to leave it on during workouts, so you can track your progress.
