With 3.3 million views in just 2 days we can thank CardStore for reminding us just how awesome our Mom’s truly are. In the end this is an advertisement, but it is a heart warming and brilliant one at that. Not to mention it reminded 3.3 million people that Mothers Day is on its way (Sunday May 11th).

While the job market may suck and we complain about our salaries and shitty working situations, just remember who truly does have the #WorldsToughestJob.

Finally a Window Air Conditioner You Can Control with Your iPhone


9to5mac - Finally some much needed smart appliance love for those without central air conditioning (and it’ll keep you cool): the Quirky Aros. Backed by GE, the New York-based start-up Quirky has combined the traditional window A/C unit with some very modern technologies to create the Nest (smart thermostat) of window air conditioners at a particularly reasonable price. On the surface, the Aros is an 8,000 BTU window A/C unit (rated to cool 350 square feet) with an almost Apple-like exterior (it looks as good as any window A/C unit I could imagine). Throw in touch capacitive buttons, Wi-Fi, and an iPhone and Android app for adjusting remotely and you’ve got your smart window air conditioner. The smartphone app doesn’t just let you control the temperature remotely…

The Aros takes advantage of GPS data and can enable and disable itself based on when you arrive and leave based on location with its “smart away” feature. Hooray for automation! Aros doesn’t stop there. It also takes into account your budget, weather, and usage patterns to recommend a schedule and temperature for programming.

Refuel Smart Propane Tank Ensures You Never Unknowingly Run Out of Propane


Uncrate - If you grill with gas, chances are you’ve been there — you get all the necessary stuff together, and are all set to cook up a great dinner, when you realize you’ve run out of gas. But with the Refuel Smart Propane Tank you can leave these problems in the past, because you’ll always know how much propane you have left. It uses a waterproof scale to keep track of your propane levels, wirelessly transmitting the information to an app on your phone. An included wired indicator attaches magnetically to your grill, so you can tell at a glance when it’s time to fill your tank, even without pulling out your phone.

What If A Microwave Listened to Your Popcorn Pop Making Sure It Never Burns?

perfect microwave

FoodBeast - Whirlpool’s latest microwave, the 1.9 cu. ft. Microwave Hood Combo with TimeSavor, has the ability to listen to itself cook, which has some serious implications on perfecting the cooking of popcorn. The product utilizes a new technology called the Accupop cycle, a feature powered by a sound sensor that helps the machine adapt its cooking time between kernel pops.

What does that mean? Apparently, a perfectly popped bag of popcorn, every time.

Since the system can hear the deviation in pops between remaining kernels and adjust the cook time accordingly, you no longer need to know the size of the bag you’re popping or deal with those obnoxious unpopped kernels. No more waiting by the microwave, listening for the 4 seconds in between popping, this first-world gadget ensures you never set your house on fire again.

The microwave launched earlier this month, and starts at $419 at available retailers
