The Bud e-Fridge: Let the games begin!

by on October 6th, 2015

BudlightIf you have ever had roommates this situation has happened to you once before…

You get home after a long day of work and excited you have a nice cold beer in the refrigerator you saved for just that moment. As you open the fridge you notice it’s gone…your beer moment is shattered. As you’re cursing your roommates name you think why don’t they have tracking devices for situations like this?

Well the good people at Bud light feel your pain. Bud Light just introduced a smart fridge that tracks and provides real-time information using your home Wi-Fi and the BUD-e App. Using a Wi-Fi light sensor the “Bud-E Fridge” will track the number of Bud Light cans or bottles inside and has a countdown timer showing when the optimal temperature for drinking them is reached.

But the fun doesn’t stop there…

Budlight 2The beer supply data is shown on a display on the fridge door and also sent via the BUD-e App to notify sports fans when game time for their favorite team is approaching. The Bud-E Fridge also notifies the owner if their game day supply of Bud Light needs replenishing plus it tracks and updates the status of the 78-beer capacity device.

The owner can also program up to four teams using the BUD-e App to get a scheduled alert 4 hours before kickoff for each team selected.

And to resolve the “who took my last beer” scenario…

The BUD-e Alarm will let you know when someone has opened the door of your fridge and changed the stock count. After tapping the alarm on, the owner will be notified when someone has removed or added stock to your fridge.

It’s currently only available in California for $299.00 but to learn more about it click here and for your viewing pleasure here is the youtube commercial about the Bud E-Fridge. (Go Niners!)

Review: Kinivo BTX350 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

by on October 21st, 2013

nina w kinivo btWireless speakers are all the rage right now; I get many requests to review different brands. I had the opportunity to review the Kinivo BTX350 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. When unboxing I liked the clean sleek atheistic look plus its design is more stationary. What I mean by stationary is many portable wireless speakers are not meant for domestic use but more for people on the go and when placed on a surface they may move around due to bass differentiations.

My only problem with the beats pill is that it seems only to be designed for portable social like settings (hence the vibrant colors); versus those who need a wireless speaker experience that you can have on your night stand, desk, living room or in the kitchen.

I want a classy wireless speaker device that blends in with your home decor while also delivering good sound quality that I can take room to room. The rectangular shape of the Kinivo BTX350 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker adds stability to this mini subwoofer along with great sound quality. Continue Reading…

Website and Apps that make life easier ;-)

by on May 1st, 2013

It’s Web Wednesday and I have a link and insights on Apps/ Websites that will help you in one way or anotherSmile.

glasses I just recently found out about http://www.glasses.com/. Yes I am geek to the core; my vision is laughable so until I do laser surgery I invest in cute glasses. Check out glasses.com and they have a 50% sale going on with limited days left. If you already have your prescription this is an easy way to stock up on some new summer glasses!moves

There is an app called Moves that I just found out about. Have you ever wondered the commute from point A to point B? Moves is a free app that records any walking, cycling and running plus shows when you commute on public transportation. The app is always on and will track your movements if it’s in your pocket or bag (or purse).

This app is also perfect when you may have left you card at a restaurant during a fun night; it’s the high tech version of retracing your steps. It truly is an automatic diary of your life if you will. It’s your daily trajectory and where you land throughout the day…I feel like my phone is stalking me but in a good waySmile.waze

Waze is an amazing GPS traffic and navigation app for commuting real time. It’s a community-based traffic and navigation app. Where you can join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road information like lane closures. For this app I recommend dashboard holders for your car since it’s to the minute and it’s just not safe fiddling with your phone while driving on the 101. Great App though! My only concern is what happens if your Waze buddies cut you off on the 101?

Best Geeky Valentines Gift Ever

by on February 20th, 2013

mkOne day Marco saw that one of my SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals on my Ubling pink case  was missing! I was crushed! I went back to my older cases and it just didn’t seem right. I felt like I had a rock in my shoe but it was my iPhone case.

For Valentines day after my week long EPIC disappointment of all cases…Marco got me this and well it’s just my style and matches my MK goulashes, MK scent and MK purse. AHH my life is now complete with my Michael Kors Case and its only 38.00 on Bonanza.com!! I’m not spoiled; I’m a bargain shopperSmile!

Honestly it has no crystals which is nice because I believe there is an epic war going on in the make up department of my purse…RIP Mascara you promised long lashes and for your brief life span I still don’t have longer eyes lashes therefore to the perfumes roller balls wins. 

Regardless of my purse wars this case has already went to the battle zone and still looks magnificent. It does help I’m rockin the ZNitro glass screen protector…This case may be Nina Certified.

Stun Master 950,000 Volt Rechargeable Lipstick Stun Gun with Flashlight

by on January 28th, 2013

Stun gunI recently got the Stun Master 950,000 volt rechargeable lip stick stun gun but I will not be testing it based on its performance since I haven’t used it yet…yet that it.

I live in DT San Francisco and my street is not the safest place to live here especially after the sun sets.  I recently had a stalker issue and it freaked me out to a point I bought mace and this lip stick stun gun.

The only problem I had with mace is that it may take longer if you are under attack to unlock it.  I definitely needed a more effective solution! Lets face it I have never thrown a punch in my entire life and I can imagine it would look pretty comical if I did.

One of my good girl friends in Oakland told me about the Lip Stick Stun Gun after I told her my stalker story. She said I must get this product because it’s perfect and easy to use (wait she already had to use it?).

Sure enough I went to Amazon.com and found the Stun Master 950,000 Volt Rechargeable Lipstick Stun Gun with Flashlight

OK I love Walgreens.com b/c this year I used the print from iPhone feature and designed our very own holiday card for same day pick up at the store in less then 2 hours? WHAT?! I like using the collage feature and the fact you can shuffle your photo’s around to create the perfect collage for the family! If your like me who enjoys being original and think outside the box do the photo shuffle for your collage. Create unique cards for everyone!
