The Worst Tech Product I Have Heard About This Year

Wash your dishes, clean your hats, cook your dinner --- all in one really small appliance! Yep, that's what the company says.

The Heatworks Tetra, an internet-connected compact countertop dishwasher requires no plumbing and can be placed and used anywhere with a standard electrical outlet. With a smaller capacity than the average dishwasher Tetra holds two full place settings or 10 plates or 12 pint glasses.

Clean your hats as well and knock out a Sous Vide

Subject:The top 10 tips from this year

  1. Most antivirus solutions will not save you – its your actions that count - Antivirus solutions and phone / tablets rarely mix
  2. Stop putting in random passwords that you think will work – know your passwords – use a password manager – use a book
  3. Keep everything up to date – computers , smartphones , tablets , software
  4. Give companies your mobile phone number for 2 factor authentication – it will keep you protected
  5. Backup – you don’t have a copy of a document unless you have 3 copies
  6. Embrace the cloud – the easiest way to backup and access your documents – especially if disaster strikes
  7. Make the move to Windows 10 – it is very good , secure and stable
  8. Ram is the key to an older computer sometimes , Windows or Apple – you need 8GB
  9. Keep your apps up to date – iPhone or Android
  10. Look for cross platform software that you can use on all devices – computers , tablets , smartphones , apple , windows
