The original Wipebook already did a great job of combining the convenience and portability of a notebook with the erasability of a whiteboard. The Wipebook Pro just does it better. Unlike the original version, the Pro model has a patented hypergloss film formula on each page that prevents smudging but still wipes clean easily, and adds tanned leather-wrapped covers for the front and the back (which also help with digitization), brass lay-flat binding, and integrated pen holder. The book comes with 20 writable pages, or more than room to brainstorm and take temporary notes, considering you can wipe each one clean over and over again.
Google Photos is a great service. It also requires you to upload your most personal moments to the nebulous "cloud", and hope that you never get hacked. The Monument Personal Photo Cloud Device offers many of the same features, but with local — and thus completely private — storage. It has two USB ports on the back for connecting roomy, cheap external hard drives, an SD slot on the front for loading photos from your camera, and an app for loading and accessing photos from your phone. Once your photos are on board, its smart algorithms go to work, automatically organizing your photos so you can search by faces, dates, or things (think beach, snow, or city shots). There's also an HDMI port for connecting it to your TV, and should you want a backup copy of your photos, it can handle that, too, either by mirroring two drives on-site, or over a secure connection with a second Monument you keep in a separate location.
WiFi shouldn't be that type of four-letter word. With eero, say goodbye to wireless dead zones, annoying buffering, and endless trips to reset your router. One router can't effectively cover an entire home. What you need is multiple access points — placed throughout your home. That's where eero comes in. Just plug your first eero into your existing modem. A simple app helps you place additional eeros; they only need power from a standard outlet. Your eeros automatically and wirelessly connect to form a mesh network that provides fast, reliable signal to every room. Manage your network remotely, or add a guest quickly without the need to remember and give out your password. And to even further distance itself from the loads of ugly routers on the market, eero has a white, minimalist design that won't have you searching for a closet to shove it into.
