Anker MagGo 10K Qi2 power bank – 15W Qi2 wireless power bank (off-grid)

The Anker MagGo 10K Qi2 power bank is a 10,000mAh power bank and 15W Qi2 charger for compatible iPhones and Android smartphones. It will charge an iPhone 12 or later up to two times.

This is unique. iPhone 15W Qi2 MagSafe charging from this power bank takes 40 minutes to reach up to 50% charge. Qi2 is intelligent charging, making it safer and faster. And you can use it on the go—it snaps onto the iPhone as an instant emergency battery (who has never run out of battery at an inconvenient time on an iPhone?) or has a desk stand for the bedside table or food tray on a long-haul flight.


Breville InFizz Fusion – carbonated drinks on command (kitchen review)

The Breville InFizz Fusion is a carbonated drink maker supporting the trend of making more homemade foods and having control over what you drink

Carbonated water is not new. Swiss man Jacob Schweppes commercialised it in 1786. The process is the same – injecting carbon dioxide (C02) into water. The earliest products were soda siphons, particularly useful for adding soda to spirits.


Guests and Topics on the Show

This week we invited Geoff Quattromani to talk about technology at sea, newest and latest advanced while on board a cruise ship.  As a true retiree, I am heading on a cruise in Europe in the coming weeks. I have been invited by Princess Cruises to experience their latest ship and have been told it is loaded with technology and innovation that will actually allow me to still attend virtual meetings at sea and even stream Netflix. There is also new technology on board that allows me to order a Long Island Iced Tea from anywhere in the ship and have it delivered to wherever I lay.  

Read more details about the Ship that Geoff was sunning it up on while he researched the story of ‘Tech on The Ship’.  

Earlier this week, Google held their annual I/O event with the announcement of Android 15.  We invited Alex Choros, Managing Editor from Whistleout who discussed some key updates on Android 15.
