Parrot MiniKit Slim Bluetooth Visor Speaker Phone

by on May 29th, 2010

I Received the Parrot mini-kit slim bluetooth visor speaker phone a  while ago but  hadn’t been able to test it out since i didn’t have a car, (it was at the mechanics) but   as soon as i got my wheels back the first thing I did was try  it out.

I talk so much while I drive that I was able to test it out with in minutes of having set it up, and can tell you it delivers good quality sound and is very easy to configure.
What I loved for most part is that it syncs with your contacts and  identifies the  person who is calling you at the moment. It is also easy to navigate as it will speak the menu options and with just one touch  left or right gives you the option you desire.

The Elle Portable Light Project

by on May 29th, 2010

I was reading my monthly  fashion magazines and came upon this lovely info on Elle: a messenger bag outfitted with a small, flexible solar panel, a HBLED light, a rechargeable battery pack, and a USB port. Called the Flap Bag, (short for “Flexible Light and Power”) it was the brainchild of the brilliant architect Sheila Kennedy, who directs the Portable Light Project, a non-profit initiative that provides solar textile kits to empower the world’s poorest people who do not have access to electricity.

Kennedy’s team works with nongovernmental organizations, providing training to women so they can integrate the technology into local textile materials using commonly available materials and their sewing and weaving skills. The results are surprising: a culturally diverse range of blankets, bags, and clothing that generate clean, sustainable energy and light, while supporting local economies.”

I think it’s an awesome idea and a great way to be fashionable and at the same time conscious about our planet.

Please visit www.portablelight.org or  http://www.elle.com/Fashion/Fashion-Spotlight/Portable-Light-Project for more information on the bags.

Memorial Day Sales/Kudos to our Military Men and Women

by on May 28th, 2010

I love shopping. I don’t think I can ever get enough of it, and as the world of technology is allowing me to ‘hustle’ the system more and more, and making sales for accessible to me – I doubt my career in shopping will end anytime soon…

I received an amazing email today from HP – one of the many companies going all out on their Memorial Day weekend sales and I just had to share it with all of you…first of all – understand that this is one of the best weekends to shop…it is…especially if you know someone in the armed forces – some places give you an extra 10& or 15% with valid ID.

Pantech Breeze II for at&t Review

by on May 22nd, 2010

Last week, I received the Pantech Breeze II. At first, I thought this phone was more like a joke. A high school senior with this phone? Yeah, I didn’t see that happening. But to my surprise I actually grew fond of the Breeze II and all the features on it.

The Pantech Breeze II has a display of three icons right on the front cover; they light up when you either have a message, phone call, or you’re battery is being charged (it changes from red to green. Green is fully charged). I thought this feature was one of the best because you can just look down to see what messages you have or if your battery is about to die without even opening the phone.
