My friend Mike is kind of a specialist at finding excellent products, and tells me about them. He should write a column about them. (He used to predict Apple products, and I even earned a little money buying stock in them back then. He doesn’t follow them quite so closely, anymore.) Because of him I have a great flashlight, a really convenient battery-powered fan, a great big solar battery for power outages, very good computer equipment, and other things. He was just telling me last night about the new version of the Apple laptop, that has a battery that lasts about four times as long as other laptop batteries, and the laptop doesn’t overheat because Apple now makes its own main processor chips, to replace the Intel ones. These processors use a fraction of the power that the Intel chip does, so it stays far cooler. (I suppose Intel stock will soon sink.)
A couple of kitchen items for food storage he recommended to me, when I told him about getting plastic out of my kitchen, and was searching for decent storage thingys:
The Airscape and Atmos food containers are both really good for storing things like coffee beans, dried fruit or beans, fresh fruit or vegetables, or nuts. Or just leftovers. These remove the extra air so stuff can’t go bad so easily.
They’re expensive, so I don’t feel a need for them right now, but those who live in warm humid climates might need them, against the heat, dampness and also bugs.
Hmm. I tried to post links to those two items on Amazon, and they didn't show up. I wonder if it's me or the site.
