Says he’s made a note of it. Also Black Friday discount code for $300 off $1000 purchase can’t be combined with the one you proved here for $199 off. Supposedly, Amazon will start offering 30% off tomorrow 11/21/2022) and they are offering a more generous return policy from date of purchase through January 31, 2023.

Comment on Pitbull Gold Shaver review by john bujnov https://the-gadgeteer.com/2018/10/09/pitbull-gold-shaver-review/#comment-7910217 Sun, 20 Nov 2022 17:10:47 +0000 https://the-gadgeteer.com/?p=252243#comment-7910217 They promise on their web site free 2 day shipping. However, that is a lie. You are not given the shipper’s name ( UPS,Fed Ex etc..) and not given a tracking number so you may follow it. I placed my order 6 days ago and as today is a Saturday it will be over a week if it does in fact arrive. After emailing customer service, I was provided a screen shot of a “tracking” from some unknown generic shipper. After some internet searching I did find out that the incompetent shipper they use transported the item past my home from Illinois to New York instead of delivering it to me in Ohio. 100% poor customer service and delivery failure. I have requested a full refund and cancellation of my order but have not heard back from their “Customer Service” which obviously is not customer orientated. Buyer Beware.

Comment on Geometric Goods iPhone 14 Pro Leather Folio Case with Magsafe review by Lynn Lopez https://the-gadgeteer.com/2022/11/19/geometric-goods-iphone-14-pro-leather-folio-case-with-magsafe-review/#comment-7910192 Sun, 20 Nov 2022 13:57:47 +0000 https://the-gadgeteer.com/?p=372777#comment-7910192 In reply to O-Qua Tangin Wann.

I checked the Geometric Goods website, and it looks like they make the same case for the iPhone 12/13. Go check it out. You can contact customer service and ask about the slot behind the cards.

Also, if the opening in the Currency Slot behind the credit cards holder is long enough, perhaps a pair of very thin readers might fit there, making it easy to carry with the phone. There are several nice credit-card-like-thin eyeglasses available online, of course.

Nothing to protect from fumes, no air exhaustion system, nothing like that. Pitiful.

Yeah, you can etch stone. It isn’t a super deep etch like something you might want on a tombstone, but you can do it.

If you are going to etch a tombstone, you’d probably want a bigger laser engraver. I’m not sure anything larger than pet-sized would fit in this. Plus the time it would take to etch would be very long – like hours.

If you like paper filters, good on ya. This is a product review site, so I’m not advocating either paper or metal filters, I’m just reviewing a particular product. Enjoy your coffee!

I dump most of the grounds–the ones in the chamber–into my trashcan or composter. The only grounds that go down the drain are the few that sometimes get stuck to the filter, which I wipe off with my finger and rinse down the drain. I always run plenty of water and garbage disposal while I do it, to help prevent clogs.

This is what constitutes an article nowadays. Click bait headline, then shilling a product by regurgitating the Amazon description. What an embarrassment.

The noise seems to be when it is needing to be cleaned. On the internet, it says it should be drained and the cleaning cycle run every couple weeks, or at least monthly…even more often if you are using hard water or unfiltered water.
