Folding Portable Lithium Powerchairs: Seeking Honest End-user Reviews

There's a new kind of power wheelchair on the market, aimed at those of us who are not full time users. They're usually made of aluminum; weigh around 60lbs all told; they fold up like a stroller; and they're powered by lithium ion batteries. These chairs sell for around US$3000 delivered to the US. Direct-to-consumer sales is one way they keep costs down: I've not found a brick-and-mortar durable medical equipment supplier where I can even sit in one, much less test-drive it. So I asked Dr Google for some reviews and came up empty. [more inside]

Where in Madrid, Seville or Malaga can I get a locally made leather handbag

My handbag had catastrophic failure just before leaving the apt, and I'm about to get on a flight to Madrid, and would like to get a new, locally made leather handbag on either Madrid, Seville or Malaga. This will probably end up being the one souvenir for me on this trip. Any thoughts on what shops, brands or areas to look in? I'll also be passing through Toledo,Cordoba, and Granada if that opens up other options.

Tech company with great world-wide support?

I travel a lot. I bought a Google Pixel LS laptop in the USA last year. us$1300. This week, while in Canada, it stopped working. Google support admits it's faulty and has offered to replace it. However, refuses to ship replacement to me in Canada and insists on shipping to USA, where I won't be for months, well after the warranty expires. This seems absurd and wrong to me... [more inside]

Lisbon antique ID?

I bought this shallow dish at a market in Lisbon, Portugal, today. It is about 5 inches wide and features some sort of demon/ram-hybrid head with three old 10-centimo coins and a variety of playing cards. I'm guessing it was intended as a change dish or something? Does it have symbolic meaning beyond guesses regarding gambling? Any additional information about this would be lovely. [more inside]

Is this Costco laptop a good deal for my gamer son?

I would like to buy my son an inexpensive gaming laptop as a "congratulations" gift for getting a new job. I linked the laptop I had in mind in the extended explanation section. It is $200 off at Costco, but the deal expires tomorrow... I want to know whether this is a great deal or not before I pull the trigger, since Costco will be getting new deals soon. Should I wait for the new deals, or is this laptop a no-brainer to the point where I shouldn't risk waiting? [more inside]

Hello, I'd like a new bike and I'm cheap.

My son (almost 10) just got his first multispeed bike, and my bike is ancient and on its last legs, er, wheels. It would take on the order of $300ish to fix up according to the local bike shop. For that price -- or even less -- I should be able to get something good enough to ride around town with the kids and sometimes bike the few miles in to work, right? Right? [more inside]

Vitamins With 0% USRDA of... Vitamins

Okay, my kid and I have been taking SmartyPants Adult Complete vitamins. They are effing DELICIOUS. So delicious, in fact, that we have trouble limiting ourselves to six vitamins. They are also wicked expensive (like $17 a bottle, egads). We want to know: where can we get gummies that TASTE like these vitamins, but are not, in fact, vitamins? They're softer than normal gummies, coated in tiny sugar crystals, and utterly addictive.
