9:53 Sound Oasis Illumy Smart Sleep Mask
Can this “smart” sleep mask make jet lag less painful? Can it put you to sleep at night? Is this really NASA technology? Our Illumy Smart Sleep Mask review is in the video!
18:35 Encrypt Cloud Storage
Matt’s wants something more secure than, Dropbox, actual encrypted cloud storage. Cool! We’ve got some easy options: BoxCryptor works with OneDrive, Google Drive or Dropbox. ODrive will encrypt and link all your cloud accounts together. Sookasa is $10 a month, HIPAA compliant, supports OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, and offers a ton of features. Shannon’s favorite? Move your data to a zero-knowledge provider like SpiderOak!

24:44 Best USB 3.0 Hub?
Rick E wrote [email protected], “Do you have any suggestions for an inexpensive USB 3 Hub? I need 4 ports minimum, ac powered. Also are there any issues I should know about with USB hubs?” Our favorite USB 3 hub comes from Anker, and we talk USB 3 issues, gamepad latency, and connecting all your gear in the video!
26:56 Two Routes, Slow Internet
Mark wrote, “Just a follow-on comment to your piece on network trace/speed analysis ideas for determining bottlenecks… One possible (non-obvious) cause of network slowdowns is that you have 2 different (and not equal) routes from your PC to the net.” Learn what this does in the video!
28:41 Do Something Analog
Like get your game on! Jack writes, “Thanks for introducing me to CamelCamelCamel.com. Of course every time you mention it, I think of the game Camel Up. I highly recommend picking up this game so you can do something analog with the family and friends.” The Kickstarter Shannon mentioned is Action News, and Robot Turtles is “The Game For Little Programmers.”
