Surge Protector Secret?
The Wirecutter has released a new pick for Best Surge Protector... which is nice, but I had no idea that SURGE PROTECTORS WEAR OUT. LIterally, and not just because of a major lightning strike... more info in the show!
Eero WiFi Router? 
Justin sums up a bunch of emails we've gotten this week, "I have heard some hype about Eero, a new Wifi mesh network advertised to home owners. Any chance you will be testing this product? I would love to see if the marketing lives up to real world performance." We talk about what Eero claims, where it should work the best (BIG HOUSES, says the Wirecutter), what we would use (for a lot less money) in a smaller home, and more!

Camera Reccos For a Big Trip? 
John writes, "I'm going on my first overseas trip to Japan, and couldn't be more excited.  What I'm not excited about, is capturing this awesome trip solely with the camera on my phone. I'm turning to you good folks with the hopes of getting some advice on places to rent cameras online, as well as recommendations on a camera to take."
