Learn A New Language With Toucan

Recently I discovered a new extension called Toucan that helps you learn a new language while you browse the web. Once you install Toucan, you will go through their onboarding experience that will ask you what language you want to learn and it will teach you how the extension works. Now when you visit any website, it will replace certain words with the language you are trying to learn. Words that have been converted by Toucan will be highlighted to make them stand out. You can also hover over them to see the word in your native language. Wikipedia articles are a great way to test out Toucan.

Toucan currently supports Chrome but the team is working on a Firefox and Safari version. Toucan will teach you Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, and more languages coming soon! Personally, I have always wanted to learn Spanish. What language would you like to learn?

OhSnap Grip Review

In the search for the perfect iPhone case accessories, I came across the OhSnap grip. They offer a variety of accessories for their magnetic grip such as a car charger and stand.

  • Excellent build quality
  • Strong magnets
  • Wireless charging works
  • The stand works great


  • I wish the grip came built into a case so that is was flush with the back of the phone

iRobot Roomba i3+ Review

After lots of research and waiting for Black Friday deals, I decided to get the iRobot Roomba i3+ robot vacuum. After using an older Deebot for several years, I decided it was time for an upgrade. Roomba created the original robot vacuum back in 2002 and has been the leader in robot vacuums ever since. They were the first to come out with a self-emptying robot vacuum and they have several patents that keep them ahead of the competition. The + in their line up means they come with a self empty base station. They sell the i3, i7, and i9 without it, but if you are going to spend this much on a robot vacuum, I highly recommend getting the self empty station. Read More
