This Isn't For Everyone.... Only For Those of us
WHO HATE TO CLEAN!!!
This is a cleaver little idea you probably wish YOU had thought of! A Ceiling Fan Vacuum Cleaner Attachment!!!
Think about it..Ceiling fans are a real nuisance to clean. .First you have to stand on a ladder (or balance on a chair like some of us "dare devils"...O.K.... "lazy people"). And the problem is that you have to reach HIGH enough to be able to get over the TOP of the fan blades! After all, the top of the blade is where most of the dust congregates, right?. (You can probably tell I've done this once or twice before, which is why I absolutely HATE doing it!)
Anyway, then you have to wipe off the top of the blade and at least half of the dust falls down onto your face and hair. (Believe it or not, there's actually a term for this! It's called, "Dust fallout." )
Well, check this out: We came across this neat little gizmo that's really does make cleaning fans a WHOLE lot easier, faster and a lot less messy!
All you have to do is slip the Ceiling Fan Vac Attachment onto the nozzle or hose of your vacuum cleaner and whoosh! Pretty slick, heh? It has a unique hinge design that allows the vacuum "fingers" to open and close around ceiling fan blades. And since the Ceiling Fan attachment covers both the top and bottom of the fan blade, you save time by cleaning BOTH sides at the same time!
It comes with an easy-to-use universal adapter so it'll fit all major brands of vacuums including:
Eureka, Electrolux. Hoover, Kenmore, Kirby, Panasonic, Royal, Fantom, Shop-Vac, any 1-1/4" vacuum hose.
Not a big deal...UNLESS YOU REALLY HATE TO CLEAN AS MUCH AS I DO!!!
So, scoop one of these up (get it?...that was a cleaning joke!!) You'll be "cleaning up" (there I go again!) at just $12.97!
P.S. - Thought you'd find it as handy as we did. Grab it now!

But, Steve and the World Start crew came to the rescue and told me to try Drain Sweeper. At first, I must admit I was a little sketchy about using Drain Sweeper, but I was desparate! So, I gave it a whirl!
Well, all I can say is WOW! What a great little tool! You simply feed the line down into the offending drain, and then pull the trigger as you remove the line. It brought up a ton of nasty gunk. It was rather GROSS... But guess what? My drain never worked so well! It sure did fix my slow drain problem! In a matter of minutes I had all he drains in my house working as good as new!!!
You defintely need to give this a try!!! Eventually, you will have a clogged up drain!!! And this fantastic tool will really save you a ton of money compared to the price of a plumber!!!

Put Light Exactly Where You Need It!
Super Blindin' Bright Motion Sensor Light!!!
No Wires, No Installation!
Automatically Turns On When You Walk By!
Wait until you see this awesome motion sensored light!! It definitely is a must have for every household! Why? Well keep reading!!!
Smartly engineered, this motion sensor light is perfect for both indoors and outdoors! Hang it with two screws, and it automatically will turn on as you walk by it! On those dark winter days, you have to admit that having a light that automatically turns on right outside your door will be really nice as you are trying to figure out which key is your house key!
A great indoor place for one of these lights is in a closet. I don't know how many times I wished I had a bright light in there so I could tell the difference between my black shoes and my brown shoes! And guess what? This light is sooo bright that it lights up my entire closet, and I don't have to worry about messing with wires to install it!
I am tellin' ya- this light is perfect! Just click on the "on" switch, and whenever it detects motion, the 7 LEDs click on and really brighten up your path! Better yet, these lights seem even brighter because of the mirror in the background that reflects even more light! How cool is that? This automatic motion senor light is fabulous!
Oh, and I just gotta tell ya about more more feature that I just adore! The light folds in half. This is really cool. Say I need my light to point more downward than out, all I have to do is bend the light to a 90 degree angle and the light will reflect straight down. But if I want the light to shine outward, all I have to do is push the light up and it really reflects outward, lightening up soooo much space! Check out this pic to get a better idea of what I am talkin' about! See how it is folded at a 90 degree angle? isn't that cool!
Oh, and I have to mention it one more time- this cool light is battery operated! So I didn't have try to mess with my house's wiring! Plus, I can hang this awesome light in places wires are unavailable- for example, in a kitchen cabinet! Now how cool is that!!! :-)
I just picked up 3 of these lights- one for my closet, one for a cabinet under my sink, and one for my backdoor! I am just sooo impressed with this light, and I know you will be too!
Want one? Sure ya do! Order today and your cost is just $16.97 and US Shipping is FREE! I am tellin' ya what- to not deal with wires and that mess, and to have amazing light, this $16.97 is definitely money well spent! Order now while our supplies last!
PS: We only have a few of these available!!!! Get to the site now and order yours before they are gone!!

The Next Generation In Anti-Virus, Firewalls, And Anti-Spyware!
Amazing Software Keeps Things FAST - And Stays Out Of The Way!
Super Smart AV Only Does Scans When YOU'RE Not Working!
Outstanding New Firewall Locks Your Computer Down When You're Away!
Hourly Updates! Unlimited Tech Support! Install On Up To 3 PCs!
Current Version, But Don't Pay $50! Get Our Best Price EVER!
Your Price? Just $9.97!!
WOW! I can't wait to share this one with ya! We just scored an amazing deal on my new favorite software - Iolo System Shield! Let me tell ya, this is NOT your run-of-the-mill Internet Security Suite! This does an amazing job of keeping your computer safe from hackers, spyware, and viruses - but read on, because the way this is implemented is far superior to ANY software like this I've used in the past! This really isn't your typical security suite - and you're gonna love it! I am personally running this software on my computer and it's by far the best I've used! I can't tell you how impressed I am with this - if you value your safety - and system performance, you've got to check this out!
OK, first off, I know you're probably already running anti-virus, anti-spyware, and a firewall - so why do you want this? Well, the thing that impresses me the most with this software suite is the absolute speed it brings to the table! Not just in scanning and such, but the very real lack of system hogging it does. Most suites like this are horrible - they really slow your system to a crawl - not this one! I uninstalled all my previous security software and tired this instead - WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Frankly, there's a good chance that if you're currently using Norton, Mcafee, ect, when you replace them with this you're going to think you got a new computer! The difference is THAT dramatic! This speed-up alone is enough reason to switch if you ask me!
Next, I absolutely LOVE how this just runs in the background and stays out of the way. So many security programs love to tell you that they are updating your system, getting new virus definitions, scanning, whatever. It's an all day long affair of acknowledging boxes and virtually patting your software on the back, "Good boy - I'm glad you downloaded some updates!" Well, those annoyances are GONE with this - it just works in the background and updates itself when necessary without dozens of boxes telling you all about it - that alone was enough to make me switch! Of course, if it finds something serious, it'll let you know (all customizable too).
Oh, and let me tell you about the anti-virus - you're gonna love this! First, yes it keeps you safe from e-mail viruses, downloads, and monitors in the background - just like everyone's AV does. However, it's the little things that make you fall in love with this! First, don't you just HATE it when you're working on your computer and the stupid AV software comes up and starts a scan? Slows everything down - what a pain! This software will actually make sure the PC has been idle for a specified amount of time before it scans! It waits till you're away before it starts - is that cool or what??? Oh, and it pauses the scan if the PC starts getting used again! Again, this reason alone is enough to change! In fact, my wife read that and said, "Hey - I want this on my computer! My AV always starts scanning when I'm working!" So, one of my 3 installs is going there!
In addition, the anti-virus can be set to scan all files or just dangerous ones (saving time), can be set to scan all kinds of files, has HOURLY updates, can be set to scan when YOU want, and can even be set to exclude certain types of files if you want! Even scan incoming AND outgoing messages if you want - all fully customizable! Oh, and did I mention that it has a year of UNLIMITED tech support too in case you have trouble? WOW!!
Think that's great? Wait till you see the firewall! Blows Windows firewall away (along with every other firewall as far as I'm concerned)! First off, yes, it keeps hackers out - all firewalls do. But this also protects you in other ways. It can monitor when a program is trying to access the internet and send all your personal info to the mothership. That, to me, is HUGE! You never know if that program you just installed is completely trustworthy - so this keeps you safe!
Another fantastic idea that I'm really excited about is the "Idle Lock" - Get this - you can set it so that if you're not using the computer for a specified amount of time (set by you) that the network locks down - nothing can come in or out! I've always said the most secure internet connection is the one that's unplugged when not in use - and this does that!! Oh, and you can also lock your computer down with the press of a mouse if you like - right from the main page!
This can also show you how many attacks it has blocked, block the attacker's IP address for a specified (by you) amount of time, and has a lot of fully customizable options. Truth is though, that the default settings work fine for me! Oh, and again, this seems like it doesn't slow anything down at all - in fact, if you're using a different firewall, this will probably speed things up! I know one thing for sure, I'm installing this on my laptop for travel - it's just too dangerous to surf using wireless networks without it!
Finally, this also includes a fantastic anti-spyware program! Just like the rest of it, it's really fast, stays out of the way, and just does the job! It automatically updates and scanning is a breeze - and fast too! I don't think I've ever seen a spyware can that was soooo fast - and it did a great job! Found a few minor things that it easily fixed!
OK, that's the main stuff, but I also wanted to mention how much easier to use this is than most other security software. First off, I think 90% of the users out there can just install it and forget it - the default settings are really a nice balance and should work well for just about every computer out there. If you want to change stuff, it's really easy to do and the program has an excellent help file that, quite frankly, most users will never ever need!
The price? You're not going to believe this one - we're talking just $9.97 and US shipping is FREE! This is the current version and retails for $49.95 (check Iolo's site - it's not cheap), so $9.97 is an amazing deal. 1 Year worth of support and updates too! Oh, works on XP, Vista, & Win 2000!
Oh, and get this - it's a 3 user license!! So you can install this on up to 3 different computers! That's way less than $4.00 per computer! Grab a friend or two and have them chip in! For less than $4.00 per computer, you just can't go wrong! It's amazing and it's what I am going to be running from now on!
PS - Seriously, this is simply the best Anti-virus, Anti-Spyware, and Firewall software I've ever used and it's going to be on my machine from now on. My computer is soooo much faster now after getting rid of the other bloated software package I had been using - and this just has soooo many great options! Don't miss out!

Binoculars With A Built-In Digital Camera!!!
Big 7x Image Magnification!
There have been times when I've gone to a football game and had my binoculars and wished that I could take some pictures of what I was seeing. Sure, you can schlep along a digital camera with a zoom lens, but it's not much fun watching a game through a camera lens! (Trust me...I tried it - but only for a few minutes.) That's why I was so excited when we got these in! After all, this could be a great solution for all of us who have struggled with the "binocular vs. camera" conundrum!
I got to admit, I was "cautiously optimistic" when I first saw these. But I saw these were made by Bushnell - a trusted, old "stand-by" in the field of optical products. So I thought, "What the heck...let me give 'em a run thru!"
These work just like a regular set of binoculars but it has the added feature of a built-in digital camera! So you can "See" a scene just like you normally would with a pair of binoculars. But, then you can also "Save It", and then "Download It" to your computer and even "Edit It"! Hmmm...that seemed interesting!
Sure enough just like a regular set of binoculars, there's a "focus" knob. Actually, I thought was even better than most binoculars cuz it's in a convenient spot - right underneath the base of the camera, right by your thumb so it's easy to adjust. Also, there's an "eye adjustment" feature so you can get a perfect fit for the distance between your eyes. Heck, there's even a an additional setting to adjust for individual eye strength! (Something called a "diopter setting", apparently a feature that Bushnell binoculars have. Didn't expect to find something like that.) Maybe I was really onto something!
Come to find out that it has "fully coated optics for optimum light transmission", plus it uses a "Porro prism system". Not sure about all that - all I know is that the magnification was pretty darn strong (7 x 18 mm magnification) and the view was very clear! In fact, it was better that other binoculars I've used that were much more expensive!
As they say, "the proof is in the pudding", so I wanted to see what kind of pictures it would take. So I ran outside a took a few shots and well, you tell me!
This first one of, "Old Glory", it was about 60 feet away from where I was standing. What's interesting is that it was pretty windy out when I snapped that shot and there's not a blur in the shot!
Next, I thought I'd see how these would work with a moving object - just like if you were at a sporting event (football game, car race, whatever). Now, it just so happens this street has a posted speed limit of 50 mph, so I think it's safe to assume this car was moving at about that rate. And once again, no blur!!! What do ya think...not bad, heh?
This is EXACTLY the thing for taking "stop action" shots! Also, I like that fact that this has a 1/4" standard tripod mount. Especially handy if you want to use the "Timer" feature and jump in the shot yourself!
Also, this neat little binocular-camera has a button on top that let's use access different features:
Timer - will take a photo after a 10 second delay when you press the shutter
Repeat Shot - This is neat. It takes a rapid series of 3 consecutive photos about 12 second apart when you press and hold the shutter button.
High/Low Photo Quality - This allows you to take photos at different resolutions (640x480 or 320x240).
Movie Mode - This lets you take short movie clips ("avi files", at 320 x 240)
Delete - Lets you delete the last photo or all photos on the camera
There's an LCD Display at the top of the camera that shows you what "Modes" you selected and also shows you how many pictures you've already taken.
As far as downloading the pictures to your computer, it couldn't be easier! It comes with a software program by Roxio, which makes excellent software products! (Now that I really didn't expect!) Just load the CD into your computer, plug one end of the USB cord (comes included!) into the camera and the other end into your computer and you're ready to roll! Just click on a couple of icons to transfer the pictures onto your computer and that's all to it! You can even edit your pictures directly from their if you want, which is perfect for someone who's pretty new to taking digital pictures and all. If you've been taking photos for a while and you're comfortable doing more advanced editing you can use a more advanced program specifically designed for photo editing, like this one we use.
And check out all the accessories that comes with it including: a USB Cable, a Carry case and carry strap!
I got to tell you, I was really pleasantly surprised with this little Bushnell beauty! Has just enough features to be really handy and useful without being too complicated! Easy to use and it works great! Plus it's compact so you can stick it in your pocket or attach the carrying case to your belt and go that route! This is great for sight seeing, sporting events or even family get togethers!
This Bushnell "binocular-camera" is something we know you're gonna love so we're gonna let you have this at a price that'll put a smile on your face (Say, "Cheese!) Grab one of these units today for just $39.97 and US shipping is FREE!!!
P.S. - It has a "rugged" design so don't be afraid of bringing this along where ever you go...after all, that's what it's for!!!
News Flash!!! We Finally Got More of These Units In!!! Yep, these had quickly become one of our best sellers and guess what? They sold out! And it was no surprise cuz this is such a great device - versatile, lots of fun and with such a low price, they just went in a flash!
If you didn't get a chance to pick up one of these up for the day or so we had 'em, do it now! These really are that awesome and we're keeping 'em at a low price, so we expect the same thing to happen!
The Entertainment Center
That Fits In Your Pocket!
(All I Can Say Is That This Thing is Sweeeeet!!!)
Here at WorldStart, we do our best to give you valuable "technical" tips and ideas that can help make your life more productive and fun! Last week, as you may recall, we ran a poll asking: "How often do you use an mp3 player/Digital Music Player?". The results were that 65.03% of those who took the poll Have Never Used An mp3 Player!!! (Nearly 11% didn't even know what an mp3 player was!)
So, we decided that this is an area that we can shed a little bit of light cuz a bunch of you are really missin' out!
Very simply, an mp3 player is a portable device that plays "digital" audio files. That's it. It gets its name ("mp3") from the name of the type of these files. Microsoft Word is a ".doc" file. Excel can be referred to as an ".xls" file. These audio files are labeled "mp3" and someone cleverly decided to name the devices that play these files, "mp3 players". (I know...whoever had that idea didn't win any awards for imagination but it did keep things simple.)
So, maybe you like to listen to songs on your computer when you're at your desk. But, what if you're NOT at your desk! That's where technology comes in. (After all, that's why you got a computer in the first place, to make technology work for you!)
So these mp3 players are small, portable "players" that you can carry around with you . If this reminds you of those portable cassette players "back in the day", you're on the right track. But if you recall, those tapes couldn't hold very much music, so you had to carry around a boatload of tapes, right? (You may have even had one of those "cassette carriers"...what a hassle!)
So, O.K., what if you could carry ALL of those songs (and then some!) inside a device that also played those songs - and, it was smaller than the entire cassette player? Pretty neat, heh? Well, that's what this mp3 player can do.
So, how do you get all those songs onto this thing? Pretty simple actually.
Plug one end of the cable (that's included) into the player and the end into a USB slot in your computer. Your computer will then show you a message letting you know that you plugged the player in.
Next, fire-up Windows Media Player on your computer.
Hit the "Sync" Tab on Windows Media Player. You'll then see this screen image below. Here you see that the two songs that are on the left side are the songs that I have on my computer. The mp3 player (labeled, "Sansa PMP -SanDisk") appears on the right side. Click on the songs you want to copy, drag them over to the mp3 player and drop 'em - that's it. You're ready to Rock 'n Roll!
Oh, and check out the controls - very intuitive, very easy to use!
Let me tell you about another idea I think you're gonna love. Chances are, you've visited some websites that had audio files that you could download to your computer. These could be lectures, recorded teleconferences, pre-recorded radio shows, whatever. You'd love to listen to them but you never seem to have the time when you're at your desk. Too bad you couldn't listen to those recordings some other time, like, ohhh, maybe while your driving, walking or even working out. Well, now you can! Go ahead and download those recordings to your computer, "synch" them to your mp3 player just like we did above and now you can listen to those files at your convenience!
But hang on a sec...it gets better!
Some players, in addition to playing audio files (mp3 files), can also play VIDEO FILES, also referred to as mp4 files. (And, "Yes", these devices are called, "mp4 players"! See, there IS a method to this computer madness!) "You mean to tell me these can play VIDEOS??" Yep...sure can! And you can carry them where ever you want to go!
Now keep in mind these players are limited based on how much storage room they have. So you're not going to get "Gone With The Wind" on there. Most people have videos from Video Camcorders (great way to see videos of the family!) or short video clips from the Internet. But you can carry these video clips with you!
Speaking of "family", you probably have a few photos in your wallet or purse. How would you like to be able to have an entire photo album...yep, stored on this same device? Well, hold on, cuz most mp4 players can also "read" jpg files (i.e., "photos")! Hmmm...starting to get interesting, isn't it?
So, how would you like to have a simple little device that can carry (and play):
TON of songs, recordings and other audio files
As you may imagine, these "players" come in all different shapes and sizes, each with greater or lesser capabilities. Like anything else, the more you spend, the more options you get...usually. But, as you probably already know, we like to do things a LOT different! To make a long story short, we've been on the look out for a great little player that's easy to use, yet jammed pack full of features. And...at a fantastic price. Well, we got one that fits all those requirements!!!
This little honey plays mp3 files and mp4 files has 4 GB of memory, has a clear and vivid video screen, and is made by SanDisk, which is a company with a strong reputation!
Oh yeah....you're gonna LOVE this thing! Just think...carry around hours and hours of songs that you can play whenever and where ever you are. Plus, no more havin' to jam only a few photos in your wallet or purse when you can carry around a photo album worth of pictures!
This mp3/mp4 player is loaded with tons of features. It even has an Equalizer with 7 pre-set settings. (try the "Bass Setting", that's my favorite one!)
And this unit comes complete with everything you need to get started!
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of "earbuds", (as you may have read in our newsletters) so I use a different set than the ones that come with this unit. This is what I use and the sound is fantastic! (It may not make any difference you; this is just one of those things I'm kind of picky about.)
And, by the way, this uses a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, which I also love. Anyway, there's a bunch more features that are listed on the product page if you want to read all the "specs".
Here's the deal on this: We were able to get a few of these units...at a really great price. That's it. We've seen this same player listed on the web for, believe it not - $216!!! (Ouch!) But, like I said, we got a great deal, so we can pass that along to yiou. And we want to do this to make it especially to those of you who have never had a chance to use one of these before! So, we're letting these great little mp3/mp4 units go for only $48.97 and US Shipping is FREE!!!
PS - RUN, don't walk to the checkout on this one, cuz this really is one Sweet Deal!
Amazing 8GB Micro-Hard Drive!
Take All Your Stuff With You!
Way Cheaper Than A Flash Drive -
And Better Lookin' Too!
You've Just Gotta Try This!
Others Charge $80-$138 For It -
Our Price Is Just $21.97!!
These are just the coolest little hard drives we've ever come across! Not only are they about as good lookin' as a hard drive can get, but they are really tiny too! Just wait till you see yours :-) You're gonna LOVE 'em!
This works just like a flash drive - only it doesn't set you back as much money! Just plug it into your computer and it will show up as an external drive under My Computer. From there, simply drag and drop your files! Works on any XP or Vista computer - no drivers required! WOW!
Why not free up extra room on your computer's Hard Drive? Yeah...instead of jamming EVERYTHING onto the computer (you know...the one you never seem to get around to backing up!), why not keep all your favorite music, photos and other important stuff in one nice, convenient spot? Plus that way, you've got everything together when you want to show uncle Bob all the latest photos from your last vacation?
Oh, and these are FANTASTIC for backups too! You probably have loads of documents, information, spreadsheets, family photos, and music that you just can't afford to lose - Why not back 'em up onto a couple of these handy little drives? Makes it MUCH easier to keep track of and for the price you just can't go wrong!
Or if you've got SOOO many tunes you just "can't live without" and you're juggling three or four thumb drives- well STOP IT!!! (Besides, you're bound to loose one of 'em, poke an eye out or do something else that every mother in the world seems to warn their kids about doing!) Do the smart thing and keep them all together and neat all in one place! (Besides, your mother will be so proud!)
Anyway, in addition to the HUGE amount of capacity, this mini-HD is FAST! (USB 2.0 with data transfer speeds up to 480 Mbps!) So when "Uncle Bob" says he just has to have copies of those pictures, BAM! plug right into that USB port and you're done!!! Oh, and this comes pre-loaded with Mobile Launchpad, which is the start menu for your USB HD Drive! So no need to think about drivers, and all that. Again, this baby is 100% Plug 'N Play so you can Rock 'N Roll!!!
And, of course, we can't leave out the fact that this Mini HD looks gooood! Sleek, slick, compact,,,what else do you need.
Oh, and this comes with its own USB cable, a Quick Start Guide AND a travel wallet. (Can you say, "Accessorize"?)
These are going to go out the door in a hurry! I'd say grab one or two while you can for yourself...maybe even one as a gift if we still have any. Also, we just found this exact same drive at buy.com for $73.82 after shipping! Grab 'em from us for just $21.97 and US Shipping is FREE! Here's the link:
PS...You KNOW you're gonna need more storage - grab a couple of these today!
STOP! WAIT!! Don't Do It!!
Whatever You Do - Don't Buy An External Hard Drive!
Make One Yourself And Save BIG!
Super Easy! Anyone Can Do It!
Great Way To Give Your Old Hard Drives A Reason To Live!
WOW! These went over like digital wildfire last week and they are STILL flyin' out the door! Want to know what all the excitement is about? You gotta check this out - probably one of the most ingenious devices we've ever offered!
I'm so excited! We just got a jaw-droppin' deal on some do-it-yourself External Hard Drive Cases! I've used these in the past (a lot, actually), and I've saved literally HUNDREDS over buying the "prefab" deals at the stores! Super easy too - my 7 year old can do it!
OK, so how's this work anyway? Glad you asked! Really easy - we sell you this great little case, you take an internal Hard Drive (IDE connection) and just plug it in. Put the case back together (a few screws - not hard), then plug it in! That's it! When you plug it into your computer's USB port windows will AUTOMATICALLY install the drive and list it under MyComputer! It's just like plugging in a GIANT flashdrive! It's THAT easy!
From there, just use it like any other drive! It's an absolutely fantastic idea for extra storage or backups!
PLUS, like I say, this can save a TON on money! There are two ways to do this - The first is to watch for a sale on internal Hard Drives at your local electronics store. You can get HUGE drives for less than $100 all day long! I've seen them for less than $40 after rebates and such! You get them for WAY less than external drives since you're not buying some snazzy case.
The second way these save money is letting you give new life to old hard drives! You know how it is - you have that old computer sitting in your closet - there's nothing on it you need anymore, it's really not worth anything, but you're worried about throwing it away. Why not salvage it's old HD and stick it into this handy case? You instantly have an external HD - for less than $20!
Now, I know you may be a little worried about having to assemble something like this, but trust me, it's easy. If you've ever used a screwdriver and plugged a lamp into the wall, you're qualified! You simply take any IDE drive up to 750GB, in plug the power cord (inside the case), then just push it into place! A few screws later and the case is assembled! I put mine together in less than 5 minutes! Really! Still not sure? I'll make you a deal - if you can't figure it out, you can call out tech support and they'll walk you though it!
OK, ready for the deal? We have these on sale today for just $18.97 and US shipping is FREE! This can save you TONS of money on external drives! Easy to do, cheap, and quick! Grab one, grab a dozen - for this kind of money you just can't go wrong!
PS - It's never been easier - or cheaper - to make your own external HD! PLUS - if down the road you decide the drive you started with is too small, you can always just take this apart and "upgrade" it yourself in a few minutes! Don't miss out!
WOW!! Coolest Card Reader EVER!
It's Not Just A Blazin' Fast USB 2.0 Memory Card Reader...
This Baby Even Has Storage For Your Cards!
Now THAT'S A Brilliant Idea!
Dirt Cheap Too! WOW - You're Love It!!!
This is soooo cool! I want you to meet my new USB 2.0 Card Reader! Sure, looks like any other card reader, but look a little closer and you'll see what's got me so excited!!! You can actually STORE your extra cards in it! (And wait till you see the deal - that's pretty exciting too!)
Check it out - the top has spots for all kinds of memory cards! Store up to a total of 9 cards! Right in in your card reader!!! Just flip the top down and you're good to go! Is that ingenious or what???
Oh, and if you haven't used a card reader before, you're in for a real treat! It's the easiest way on the planet to get your photos from your camera to your computer! Get this - you just pop your card into this handy little reader and a window will pop up on your screen. Just view the files, and drag and drop to whereever you want to store 'em! It's really that easy!!
I know, you think transferring directly form your cameras is just fine - well, I used to think that way too! Oh, but THEN I tried a card reader and it changed my life forever! (OK, maybe that's a bit extreme, but I'd give you my mouse before I'd give up my card reader! You can't have it! NEVER!!!)
Seriously, these make it so much faster - and sooooo incredibly easy - to get your files off your card and onto your computer! Really, once you try it, you'll never consider ever going back to the bad old days of camera transfers! PLUS this little guy works with just about EVERY card out there! I mean, look at this:
Yeah, pretty much if you have a camera with a memory card, this baby is gonna read it!
Oh, and get this - I did a little beggin' and snagged you an amazing price! Most places get $20-$30 for an all-in-one card reader like this. Ready, Set? We're just about giving these away for just $10.97 today!! And we'll even ship it FREE if you live in the US!!! WOW!! Check this bad boy out - you'll be glad you did!
PS - This is the reader I keep with my laptop now! I LOVE that I can store extra cards into it! Makes it easy to keep track of everything! Give this a try - you'll love it too!!
We've Sent Men To The Moon...
'Bout Time Someone Finally Figured Out How To Make
Earphones That Sound Great...
And That Are ACTUALLY Comfortable To Wear!
Music To Your Ears!
The Amazing Sound Of Headphones With The Light-Weight Comfort of Ear-Buds
If you've ever tried to listen music with earphones (or "earbuds" as they're often called) you probably have had the same gripes that I've had with 'em. Yeah, they're lightweight but the trouble is you have to "balance" them in your ear canal. And then they usually fall out, so you have to jam 'em so far into your ear that they're REALLY uncomfortable. And then you also have to watch the volume OR ELSE YOU GET BLASTED AWAY!!! So, I had just resigned myself to the fact that they were just more trouble than they were worth.
Well...we found the solution! We've just come across a NICE set that sound GREAT (YES...they're STEREO! ) and are VERY comfortable. (In fact, I'm wearing 'em right now as I'm writing this!)
Let's face it, if earphones aren't comfortable, who cares how they sound, cuz you'll never wear 'em to ever find out! Well, these stream-lined earphones really deliver not only on great sound but comfort too!
Here's why these "Stereo Earphones" work:
First off, each earpiece fits over and behind your ear, so they stay out of the way. And that piece is bendable so you can adjust it to your own comfort level! (Makes a huge difference!)
The other thing I like about these is that the earpiece is wrapped in a thin layer of rubber-neoprene so that makes 'em very comfortable as well. So when you place the earpiece in your ear it stays there...comfortably, and doesn't fall out! And I noticed that by being able to position the earpiece itself, that also explains why the sound is so good!
These are all small points but they're important. And when you point them all together, you have a really great set of earphones that you can take where ever you go! In fact, you can use these at your computer desk if you're working on your computer late at night or early in the morning and you need to keep the sound down.
And the cord is long enough (4 foot) without being too long so as to get tangled and in the way. (Another small point but something I've noticed as a problem with other earphones I've tried!)
And in case you were wonderin', this is the common plug (3.5 mm) that fits into the front and your computer and most other audio devices, like portable radios, laptops, cd /dvd/mp3 players, iPods etc.
Do NOT let the low price fool you on this. We just happened to get a great deal on these so we're passin' along the savings! Believe it or not, today these are just $8.97 and shipping in the US is FREE!
P.S. - At this price, might want to consider picking up 2 or three of these so you have one at your computer, one in the car and one you can stick in your pocket or purse for walks or bike rides!
Warning - This price is set to increase soon! Don't pay $14.97 for 'em later - grab 'em today!!
YES! They're BACK!
We begged, we pleaded, and we finally were able to liberate a small number of the amazing GPS systems below! They were extremely popular a few weeks back and we've had people begging for more ever since. We were FINALLY able to get another handful - LESS THAN 100 - so here's one last shot at 'em!
WOW! Turn Your Laptop Into An Incredible GPS Unit!
WAY More Powerful & Full Featured Than A Windshield Mount Unit!
And Only A Fraction - A FRACTION - Of The Cost!
Even Can Respond To Voice Commands!
Best GPS Navigation Ever! Wait Till You Try It!
We just found the coolest GPS package on the planet! It's DeLorme's EarthMate and it transforms your laptop into an amazing, full featured, voice activated GPS Unit! Really! Works great too!
Using your laptop for an automotive navigation GPS is absolutely incredible - and much easier than it might sound too! If you have a passenger, they can keep the computer on their lap when it's needed, and if you're going solo, just set it on the seat next to you! It accepts voice commands, so you don't even need to touch it (more on that in a minute)! Between getting to use your large laptop screen and all the amazing features packed into this, you'll never, ever consider one of those silly windshield-mount units!
How does it work? Glad you asked! You install the map software on your laptop and plug in the included GPS receiver into your laptop's USB port! That's it! You now have a fully functional GPS system you can take with you! The receiver itself is on a 5' cord, so you can easily set it on your car's dashboard if you like (or use the suction cup for the windshield) - it's small too - about the size of a small wireless flip-phone!
Again, this does the same thing as those little units you can spend hundreds of dollars on - except this uses your computer so it's a LOT more powerful! This puts any hand-held or windshield mount GPS unit I've ever seen to absolute and complete shame! PLUS, wait till you see the price - it's a FRACTION of the cost! And you get to do all your navigating on your laptop screen instead of some small, impossible to read 4" LCD panel! It's amazingly good :-)
OK, this does a LOT! I could literally take up 10 pages just giving you the highlight show! You'll really have to stop by the website to see everything this can do - way too much to go over here (you'll understand when you see the page), but just to give you a little taste of what's in store for you...
First, input your destination and this will get you there with easy to follow turn by turn directions (audio turn by turn help no less)! Even better, this can respond to voice commands from you so it becomes VERY hands-free! In fact, you can train it so you can say something like "When is my next turn?" and it will answer back something like "Your next turn is in 200 yards". Yeah, it's cool!
In addition, it also has amazing re-routing help for when you run into traffic jams, you can use voice prompting to ask it where the nearest gas station, hotel, etc is, and you can even scout ahead on the map and have it snap back to your current location! Oh, and did I mention it has a whoppin' 4 MILLION places of interest built right in - gas stations, restaurants, hotels, malls, - you name it! Everything you need on the road!
Yeah those little windshield mounted units are starting to look darn pretty pathetic right about now, don't ya think?
Oh, and get this - you can also import data into it from spreadsheets and most popular contact managers! If you travel for business, this is amazing - just import your contacts and navigate to any one of them with a couple mouse clicks! You can even enter a phone number and this will do a reverse lookup and find the address for you! WOW!
Using the maps is fantastic too! They are amazingly detailed and just a right-click will tell you exactly what's under your mouse (body of water, street, etc)! It can even get you local radio station information - now THAT's insanely impressive!
OK, you get the idea. Frankly, we only have a limited number of these and if I keep going on we're going end up having way more people who want one than we have available. Bottom line is simply this - if you've been thinking about getting a navigation system or windshield mount GPS unit for your car, THIS is going to blow ALL of the competition away! After all, it all the resources of a full-blown computer at its disposal, so really, it's not even a contest! Imagine having this on your next trip! Oh, and imagine how cool this would be if you had to rent a car somewhere and had no clue where you were going!
Your price is only a FRACTION of what you would pay for a full blown GPS unit too! Just $38.97 and US shipping is FREE! These retail for $70, so it's a huge chunk of change off the regular price! And amazing compared to a $400 GPS unit! Don't miss out!
PS - Seriously - only a limited number available. PLEASE get to the site early. Once these are gone we can't get anymore and I'm not sure if we'll ever see something like this again! Don't miss out!
