Krups ZB500E2 Infinity Slow Juicer

The Krups ZB500E52 Infinity Slow Juicer is all about choice. Do you want some juice, or some sort of delicious breakfast cocktail? No problem. Oh, a smoothie is more along the lines of what you're feeling? Or maybe a sauce? It can handle that, too. You see, the Infinity Slow Juicer boasts two separate stainless steel baskets--one fine mesh for juice, and one with a more coarse grid for thicker smoothies and sauces. The motor is said to be near silent as well, so you can throw together your superfood beverage early in the morning without worry of waking the kids.

You can pick up the Krups Infinity Slow Juicer on Amazon for $279.

Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor

We were big fans of the original Withings Blood Pressure Monitor, but the new model introduced at CES 2014 is a vast improvement since it works wirelessly. No longer requiring to be tethered, the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure model works with the iPhone, as well as Android devices (the previous version only worked with older iOS device that used the 30-pin connector.) You launch the app after applying the cuff, and you get your blood pressure and heart rate, which can be archived so you can refer to the data later, and view trends. You'll be able to get it soon for $129.95.

Peep a video demo after the break.

Google acquires Nest

Google just announced that it will acquire Nest, the company that sells the popular and impressive connected Smart Thermostat and Protect smoke alarm devices, for $3.2 billion. With the deal, Nest founders Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers will join Google, bringing the two men who pretty much brought the iPod to life into Google's clutches.

"They’re already delivering amazing products you can buy right now–thermostats that save energy and smoke/CO alarms that can help keep your family safe," said Google CEO Larry Page in a statement. "We are excited to bring great experiences to more homes in more countries and fulfill their dreams!"

Google says that Nest will continue to operate independently, and Nest says that the customer data will be kept separate from the rest of Google data mining. We've seen similar promises from other companies Google has purchased in the past, and many of them were broken. We'll see how this one pans out. The acquisition is now pending regulatory review, and will likely take a few months to close.
