Cubetto Robot Review, Can Kids Really Learn To Code Before They Learn to Read?

Being a parent can be hard.  We try to do the right things for our kids, but we often get conflicting messages.
Recently, educators have been talking about the need to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) from a very early age.  Perfect, I can get my child in front of the computer and teach her some coding.
Not so fast…
Other educators have studied the impact of excessive screen time for young kids and let’s just say plopping them in front of a screen to learn coding might not be the best idea.
What is a parent to do with this conflicting information?  One possible answer – Cubetto from Primo Toys.  Cubetto is the only screen-less programming system for kids as young as 3 years old.  In fact, to program and code with Cubetto…

Garmin launches its first inReach products: the inReach SE+ and inReach Explorer+

Garmin Forerunner 935 In-Depth Review

Today Garmin announced their latest triathlon/multisport…and running-specific focused watch, the Forerunner 935.  This watch follows almost a year after the FR735XT was announced last spring, and only 3 months after the Fenix 5 series was announced in January (which just started shipping last week).
So what’s the FR935 all about?  Well in a nutshell it’s a cheaper version of the Fenix 5, with a plastic shell as opposed to metal. Basically – it could be named the Fenix 5P – for Plastic.  It’s got a barometric altimeter (and WiFi!) that the FR735XT lacks, and also adds in things like the new Training Load/Recovery features found in the Fenix 5, as well as Bluetooth Smart sensor support.  Not to mention support for the also just announced Running Dynamics Pod (RD Pod)…
