They can do everything from playing you a song to helping you with your homework, to ordering food Another important investment would be to purchase an item tracker such as the Tile Tracker This device can help you locate everything your keys, to your laptop bag and more The item may not seem techish but most wouldn't stay running for long without it A good surge protector can do more than just provide power for your devices, it can protect them from power fluctuations at your home as well
