Wednesday’s best tech deals: Stave off the winter blues with the Philip’s full spectrum light

    Happy Wednesday!

    I apologize for not getting out the deals listing yesterday as I had some bad salmon the night before.

    With daylight savings ending and winter on the horizon, we are destined for shorter day light. With the technology available from Philips and its Sunrise light on sale, you can wake up to light just like you would with the sun. You can program it to keep your normal schedule with a bright yellow light to wake you up. An even more important light is the GoLITE Blue from Philips.

    The winter blues is a real thing with people suffering from depression and a lack of energy due to the reduction in natural full spectrum light. Studies have shown the winter blues cause a downturn of your mood, increase in irritability, apathy, less energy, fatigue, boredom, over-eating and more.

    If you want to fix your home networking problems, the SecurFi Almond gigabit WiFi router is on sale for $60 off. With this system, you can expand on it to make a huge wireless mesh network, and even connect smart devices like smart plugs and sensors. It’s a great deal at this price considering it just came out a month ago.

    Check out the deals below.
