Magicbox Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker


Magicbox Ultra-Portable wireless bluetooth speaker.This is a wonderful little speaker from DKnight. It puts out a big sound, which is amazing coming from such a little box.

My husband was surprised that the sound was so loud, and the volume wasn’t even turned all the way up.

We connected it to his phone so he can use it to listen to his music.

The Magicbox Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket so he can carry it with him when he is out doing chores, or horseback riding, or wherever.

I’m not absolutely sure it will work everywhere he goes, because some areas don’t get good cell reception, but even if it only works in some places it will be nice.

It has a microphone and you can use it to answer calls.  It also has a 3.5mm Aux in jack, which means it can play all audio devices.

It didn’t take it very long to get completely charged up either. I just plugged in the usb port and left it for a while.  The battery when fully charged provides up to 10 hours of play time.

The one I got is black but it also comes in a pretty blue or red.

Use This Sticky Suction Mount To Hold Your Phone Anywhere


Sticky Suction Mount from IGotTech.This Sticky Suction Mount from IGotTech is a portable mount that can be used just about anywhere.

It does need a firm, fairly flat surface to stick to, but that surface can be made out of pretty much anything. Surfaces it can stick to include: plastic, metal, glass, rubber,  and silicon.

This mount can hold your phone with no problem but it can also hold other things such as navigators and tablets.

I stuck  the mount on my back door and put my Kindle Paperwhite on it just to see how well it would work.

The mount has a suction cup on the bottom that holds it to the surface. The sticky part where you put your phone (or whatever), is really sticky.

My Kindle stuck to it with no problem. I took it out to my car and stuck the mount on the window and put my Kindle on it too. It worked just as well there. I meant to take a picture of a phone on it but never managed to take my husbands phone away from him long enough.

I figure if the sticky will hold a Kindle it will hold a phone even better, because the phone is not as heavy.

The sticky part (where you put your phone) can be rotated 360°, so you can pretty much turn it however you need to. I thought about just using it at the table to hold my kindle up. I know that seems lazy but if you are doing something (crochet, knitting, eating) and need your hands free while reading, it would work pretty well.

If the sticky part loses it’s stickiness, you can just wash it off with water, and it will be sticky again.

The folks at IGotTech are so sure you will love this Sticky Mount that they are offering a double guarantee: if you have any problems with it for two years they will refund your purchase and send you a new unit free of charge.

For more information or to check out their other products you can find IGotTech on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and YouTube.

SiliGuy IPhone Holder Review


Picture of SiliGuy in different places.The SiliGuy Iphone Holder is really neat. It is flexible. It feels sort of like those little toys that you can twist into all sorts of shapes.

You can bend the arms and feet to fit any size phone.

It can be used just about anywhere too.

It was made mostly to be used in a car. You can hang your phone from the review mirror like my husband did and still use the phone.

It is really good for voice dialing and talking. You don’t have to touch the phone or even look it really.

If it is on your mirror like my husbands, even if you do look at the phone, you can still see what’s going on in front of your vehicle.

SiliGuy Phone Holder with my husbands phone in his truck.That doesn’t necessarily mean it is ok to be talking on the phone while you are driving.  That is still dangerous. But not as dangerous as trying to dial a number by hand, or texting.

My husband also hangs the phone up in the truck when it needs charging while he is out and about. He says it keeps it out of the way, and keeps it safe.

Before we got the SiliGuy he had a few accidents with the phone ending up in the floor, because there really was no good place in the truck to lay it down.

He doesn’t have to worry about that any more.

You can also use this holder anywhere else you need your hands free. Like if you are cooking and want to read a recipe on the phone, you can hang the SiliGuy from a cabinet.

These are not very expensive and you get one of your own here.

Do You Really Need A Cellphone?

Sitting in the doctors office yesterday there were about 10 people in there when we were and all but 2 of them had phones of some sort.

Most of them seemed to be playing games or checking facebook.

I bought a Tracfone 7 years ago just to have on the road for emergencies. Out on some of these country roads there are not too many houses so you have to walk a ways to find a phone if something happens.

Of course out here people do tend to stop and help if you are pulled over on the back roads but it is nice to have a phone in those situations.

That old phone has just about given up the ghost though. The keys started to stick and my hubby decided we needed a new one.

That old phone was just for calls. All the new phones seem to be internet ready and have cameras in them too. The camera part I really like…I can take pictures for my blog from anywhere!

However it seems to me that people are getting way too hooked on having the internet everywhere these days. The phone was bad enough…people can call you anytime, anywhere, for any reason.

Now you can get on Facebook anytime, anywhere. Or play games or check email. There is even less down time.

No wonder people are so stressed out these days. No one takes the time to just sit and relax or sit and think.

I’m wondering if people are scared of quiet these days. Scared to be still for a bit.

What do you think? Do you have your internet with you all the time? Does it add to stress? Do you ever get annoyed with being accessible at all times?

Do you need a cellphone?

Organizing And Decorating And Going Crazy

We have gotten just about everything moved in to the new place now. There are a few things we haven’t got yet but all the big things are moved.

I keep forgetting my plants. They are very hardy so should be ok another day or two. I really need to remember to get them though.

This place is bigger and we have not yet figured out how to arrange things so they really look good.  My mom has done most of that sort of thing. I’m not really good at decorating and she is.

The phone still hasn’t been hooked up. AT&T claim it has been but it isn’t working. They were supposed to send a tech out today and find out what was wrong. They couldn’t (or wouldn’t) say what time the tech might get here other than sometime between 7 am and 7 pm.

Apparently AT&T doesn’t have anyone capable of figuring out schedules. Make a note next time you move…make them check the phones before they leave the first time. I would have done that but he didn’t even bother letting us know he was here(if he actually was).

We may have to consider an alternative phone system. The cable isn’t always on either so not sure that would work.

Cell phone reception here is pretty much non-existant. And I haven’t yet found a cell phone that will work with hearing aids. The cell we have I can’t hear on. I have a cap-tel phone to use for emergencies. And for talking to family and friends. It needs a land line to work.

Anyone have any suggestions? My husband is going nuts without his phone. I already went.

Need An Inexpensive Cell Phone?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Tracfone has some of the least expensive phones you can get. They are great for summer use. Especially if you need several in order to keep up with the whole family.  You could spend a fortune on cell phones and contracts if you are not careful.

They have brand name Phones including Motorola, Kyocera, LG, Nokia, and Samsung. The one I have is a Motorola. It is an older model and I have been thinking of getting one of the newer ones.

We used ours when we made that trip to Michigan a couple of months ago. It worked all the way up there. We did not run into any dead zones on our trip. So I believe them when they claim to have great nationwide coverage in the U.S. The folk in t his video agree :

You can also make international long distance calls to over 60 international destinations directly from your TracFone at no extra cost. TracFone is the only wireless service where you can call internationally for the same price as normal calls. And in Mexico and Canada friends and family can use a local number to call you on your TracFone! This is great for families with members who travel out of the country.

You can also get  “Double minutes for the life of your phone” with some of the phones. With other phones you have to buy that separately but it only costs 19.99. I got one of those cards a while back. It was definitely worth it. It doubles whatever minutes you put on there each time.

I also love that you can just buy however minutes you need (or want)  and just tell everyone to make do with that number of minutes. That way you don’t have someone running up a huge bill. And if you need fewer minutes sometimes than others then you are not stuck paying for them anyway. I love not having a contract. These folks do too : real TracFone customers. The code cards are available just about everywhere. Many retail stores carry them including Wal-mart and Dollar stores. You can even buy minutes online. Very convenient!
