This billionaire NFL owner and his son are taking on Vince McMahon and WWE
After nearly two decades of dominance, WWE might finally have some legitimate competition.

Teplo 2.0 (the successor to the Teplo portable tea maker) is a smart kettle designed to solve these problems, meaning the tea aficionado doesn’t have to linger over a teapot with an egg timer to get the perfect brew.
