Vinamor wine aerator review

Vinamor review

The Vinamor wine aerator, the concept of Gary DeJohn, was featured on ABC's Shark Tank with an impressive demo that showcased just how well the product can bring out all the flavors of a just-opened bottle of wine. The Vinamor has a stainless steel filter and a glass sphere that work together to aerate your wine. It sits atop your wine glass, and as you pour wine through the filter, it's exposed to the large surface area of the glass sphere, which in turn softens tannins and brings out flavor while the filter catches and sediment that may be present. Or, at least, that's the promise. How well does the $40 Vinamor actually perform? Join us in our full Vinamor review for our thoughts.

Fast Fingers

If you hunt and peck at your computer or don’t have enough patience to take a typing class, Fast Fingers may be right for you. The QWERTY board also can become ABC with one key push. If you IM a lot, another button gives you access to Internet abbreviations. It was created by Faith Quintavell (who can  type) after noticing that others couldn’t. Plug into your USB port and pick up some speed for $27.95.

LOST returns tonight!

Posted by David Torres Categories: Editorials, Television


After eight long months, “LOST” returns tonight on ABC at 8:00 pm. The first hour is a clip show recapping everything that’s happened so far and then at 9:00 we have the two hour premiere. “LOST” is my favorite show on television right now. I watch a lot of TV, but other than “LOST,” I don’t watch any shows on a regular basis. I’ll catch an episode of “House” here and there; “Law and Order;” “South Park;” “Family Guy,” but “LOST” is the only show where I’m on my couch in front of the TV for the entire duration of the program when it first airs.

I’m recording it tonight because with two kids at home now, not sure if I’ll be able to start watching it immediately when it comes on. My oldest son James is afraid of the dark. I try to read to him every night and then I have to sleep on the trundle bed next to him until he falls asleep. My wife is dealing with our new born son and some times he doesn’t fall asleep until after nine. What ya goin’ do right?

Anyway, when we last left “LOST,” Jack had met up with Ben at the funeral home. Ben told Jack that they needed to go back to the island and bring all of the other Oceanic passengers who made it off the island back with them - including Jeremy Bentham. In the final scene of last season’s finale, we find out that the person in the coffin at the funeral home is the mysterious Jeremy Bentham who is actually John Locke. Why was John going by the name Jeremy Bentham? I’m assuming it has to do with the fact that John made it off the island and since the rest of the world believes he and all of the other Oceanic passengers on the island are dead, he needs to continue to keep that secret.

If you’re at work right now and want to goof off - like I’m doing, ABC has posted three clips which are two minutes each of tonight’s episode.  Also, here are some sites that I go on to try and refresh my memory, read up on theories, and get spoiled if I’m feeling weak and I can’t wait until the show starts.





I’ll be posting my review sometime on Thursday.  I can’t wait for tonight!

Presidential Debate Influenced by Internet

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Editorial, Internet

Mike Huckabee

Okay, so we didn’t all get to go to the CES, but somebody had to hold down the fort in case the Gear Live crew has too much fun. I mean, at least we get to see the power of the Internet in other ways. If you caught the debate on ABC last night, you surely noticed the candidates plying their wares outright on National TV.

Fred Thompson was the first to mention that he loves the contributions he is receiving online, and his site posts how much money he has accrued. Mike Huckabee also said that part of his success in Iowa was due to his website which has created quite a following. Both men were quick to give their specific addys. And, by the way, let’s not forget that one of the sponsors was Facebook, where you could follow online the sometime hostile action between Hillary, Barack, and John. The Internet is a glorious place and we should be thankful that so much information is available.
