Fun fact — approximately only 20% of this nation consists of parents, even fewer with young kids, so what kind of blogger would I be to exclude the other 80% from my contests? The last two days had a strong family focus with the cloud b and Pampers prize packs up for grabs, so I thought it nigh time to switch gears with some other goods!
Through 2015, I slowly found myself entering the world of tech blogging. There’s still more than enough that makes me drool at the thought of owning them — the GoPro Hero 4 Black; the Canon EF f/4L 11-24 mm lens… heck, even as a responsible adult, I probably won’t be satisfied until I get a Vitamix G-Series 780 to make my food and a Miele Complete C3 PowerPlus vacuum to clean my messes up — being a technophile is a constant struggle to optimize your world, and today’s prizes are right in line with the dream of living a life as sleek as possible!
Our ancestors would likely be dumbfounded by the sheer number of things we can do at the press of a button in 2015! We can watch our homes through portable screens that never leave our sides, telling intruders exactly where they can go via two-way communication. The computers that filled office floors; music recorded in expansive studios filled with instruments; and the encyclopedic volumes that once required dedicated bookshelf space to give us information at our fingertips — we carry all of this in our pockets without a second thought, constantly pushing the envelope on things we can do to improve our lives!
The Linksys N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender — Your Solution to the Age-Old Problem of Endlessly Buffering YouTube Videos ?
Though living space in my city is most definitely at a premium, I know that doesn’t speak for the rest of the nation.
If you have a large enough house or live somewhere where your Wi-Fi signal’s reduced with too many walls and obstacles getting in its way, you’d be happy to win the Linksys N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender! Capable of extending Wi-Fi coverage up to 5000 square feet, it’s compatible with any wireless router, and will help solve the trouble with those pesky basement setups that don’t quite reach to the rest of the house!
The Belkin WeMo Insight Switch — Because Outlandish Hydro Bills Haven’t Gotten Any Cooler.
The second item is Belkin’s WeMo Insight Switch, a modern answer to the timers we’ve used to manage our Christmas lights for who knows how long. But the WeMo Insight Switch does a heckuva lot more than just tell your electronics when to turn on and off — it monitors energy consumption and cost; can send you notifications on status changes and usage; and best of all… you can control it all through your smartphone from almost anywhere long as you have an Internet connection! The possibilities are endless — kids watching too much TV? Shut it down. Convinced that one machine is running your bill too high each month? Measure it over time to make sure! Belkin’s WeMo Insight Switch is deceptively simple, but can give you control in ways you may have never thought possible!
So if you’re interested in improving your home, then I’ve got a little contest with your name on it — one lucky winner will make off with both of today’s prizes, and all it takes is a few clicks to get your name in the running! (Contest open to Canadians aged 18+ living outside of Quebec. Contest ends 12/31.)
Life is for Living — Don’t Waste it Overcomplicating Things with Outdated Solutions!
Why do things the old way when you can do so much better? I remember when I bought my first printer in a decade, stunned by how much it could do when I took it out of the box. The world’s given us no end of ways to make our lives easier in 2015 — the first step is knowing the problems we need to solve.
The second? Knowing that out there somewhere is the tech you need you need to solve it.
Good luck to all who enter, and I’ll catch you on Day 5!
