CES 2017: NVIDIA announces new Shield TV console, with Google Assistant support.

The stock of the original NVIDIA shield has been dwindling the past few months, so it probably comes as no surprise that a new one has been announced at CES 2017.

Mattresses are not the normal thing I review on Mighty Gadget, but US based company Rem Fit are launching in the UK, and their Rem Fit products cover both traditional bedding as well as some smart tech such as a sleep tracker to form a range of products to promote a healthy lifestyle. I have split the review of the mattress and tracker into two, as I don’t want to dilute the tracking content with the mattress content. The Rem Fit Sleep 400 Mattress is the flagship mattress from the company and has: Cover: Re-Ax Fibre Cover The thermo-regulating...
