HP Envy 6-1110us 15.6-Inch Sleekbook (Black) Review short:

This Hewlett packard Envy 6-1110us 15.6-Inch Sleekbook (Black) isn’t just another ultra-light ultra-fast notebook laptop that one has Bluetooth! With this particular sleekbook, I’m able to connect easily not just via 1×1 802.111b/g/n WLAN but additionally via Bluetooth! In order to easily pay attention to my music through wireless headset and connect to the laptop through bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Also, I’m able to use bluetooth to sync my bluetooth-enabled smartphone with my Envy Sleekbook 6-1110us! This really is handy for whenever I’m not around wi-fi compatability, I’m able to still connect my smartphone with this particular sleekbook as it is bluetooth enabled. I’m able to easily sync and print from as much as 30 ft away about this sleekbook with Bluetooth.


HP Envy 6-1110us 15.6-Inch Sleekbook (Black) Review short:

The Hewlett packard Envy 6-1110us 15.6-Inch Sleekbook (Black) has got the same blown aluminum in night time black finish which i prefer and Hewlett packard really provides! Additionally this sleekbook includes a red-colored soft-touch base that is simpler to grip, does not scratch as quickly and appears super awesome the red-colored/black combo jogs my memory of the ferrari for whatever reason. Besides this sleekbook look awesome, it’s sensual to the touch. It appears the foot of my laptops get scratched prior to the top does, which means this new soft-touch is made of a large plus for that laptop searching awesome a bit longer of your time. I anticipated it feeling much softer and rubbery from reading through the outline of computer really does personally. It seems like solid metal after i touch just the base which is not until I touch both base and also the top will be able to tell the much softer grippier texture from the bottom. It appears as though red-colored metal not rubber or soft. The red-colored rises around the sides in which the ports and plugs are although not to the inside round the keyboard or screen. It’s a really awesome searching black with ruby red-colored combo and every day I appear to fall a bit more for each other.

Just pretending that we’re cool

Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy till we see the sun
I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young
And live while we’re young
Tonight let’s get some
And live while we’re young

Hey girl, it’s now or never, it’s now or never
Don’t over think just let it go
And if we get together, yeah, get together
Don’t let the pictures leave your phone
Oooh

Yeah, we’ll be doing what we do
Just pretending that we’re cool
So tonight

Let’s go crazy, crazy, crazy till we see the sun
I know we only met but let’s pretend it’s love
And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young
Come on and live while we’re young

And never, never, never stop for anyone
Tonight let’s get some and live while we’re young

How to find the best discount hotels and flights

I like to travel around the world. Sometime I like to visit expensive places like Monte Carlo (tip: the best time to visit Monaco is in September), London or Dubai. Even so, I’m not so rich so I need to plan in advance my trips and find the best discount hotels and flights.

Always check online for discounts and deals. You could get lucky and land a deal for a trip at half the price. Ticket resellers are always trying to get rid of tickets last minute for destinations that did not sell. Therefore you are always going to want to be on the lookout for and deals you can get your hands on.

Hotel de Paris Monte Carlo
Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo: The Exclusive Double Suite: 13,200 EUR/night

Book your reservations far in advance. One of the best ways to save money is to book your reservations right away. A lot of people think that they don’t need to book their tickets right away and that things will work out. Although you might get lucky and find a deal, remember that nothing is set in stone until you book a flight. You can also save a lot of money by booking flights and hotel packages together.

Shop around for the best fares if you are traveling by air. Search on popular travel sites, as well as the airline’s own website (ex: British Airways, Lufthansa, Delta). Know the rules for change fees or cancellations, which will generally be more favorable when booking directly with the carrier itself. If your plans are set in stone, you may even want to consider using bargain travel sites or ones in which you can negotiate the fares. Remember also that airfares are generally less expensive on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Book well in advance for the lowest fares, and don’t be afraid to ask for refunds if the fare drops before your departure date.

crete
Crete (an island from Greece) is my favorite place to visit during my summer holiday.

Search for the best hotel rates in the same way that you do for airline tickets. I always use Booking.com to search good deals for hotels and Tripadvisor.com to search for hotel reviews.

Rates will vary, sometimes greatly, depending on where and when you book them. If booking directly with the hotel, always ask if the rate quoted is the “best rate available.” Use discounts that you are entitled to, such as AAA or AA discounts. If you know that you will not need to make changes, consider using websites that require you to pay in full at the time of booking. Be aware, however, that these rates are usually nonrefundable.

Before deciding on a destination, make sure that you know the costs involved for traveling in that area. Choose a place that fits into your budget and will give you plenty of room to splurge on the things that you want to do. Then, make a budget and know ahead of time how much you want to spend. Nothing can ruin a trip more quickly than realizing that you cannot afford the activities and events that you have the opportunity to experience.

Know your destination as well as possible before leaving home. Use the Internet to become familiar with all the things to do there, and which things to avoid. Reserve enough money to enjoy the things that are the most important to you, while putting aside enough to splurge on unexpected activities that will be revealed only after arrival.

Eating out can put a huge drain on your vacation budget, so think ahead about how to avoid some of these costs. If dining in restaurants is a big part of what you enjoy about traveling, then include it in your budget, by all means. Consider, however, booking hotel rooms with refrigerators, so that you can at least save money by eating breakfast or snacks in your room. Pack things like bread and crackers, or purchase them at a local grocery store after arrival. The time spent at the beginning of your trip can more than pay off, with less expensive and more nutritious options for meals in the off times. Bring along a backpack and throw in some snacks for when you are out enjoying activities, so that you can avoid paying for expensive drinks and fast food at venues.

Time spent planning for expenses can make your trip more enjoyable and less stressful on every level.

Travel is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have, making lifetime memories for your entire family. A trip can easily turn stressful, however, if expenses get out of control. It is wise to plan ahead for not only the known costs, but also for the inevitable unexpected expenses that occur. Read on for some tips for managing the financial aspect of your journey.

A new toy in town: sugru – crazy rubber modeling material

I find a new “toy” for geeks. It is Sugru and it will keep you busy for long time and all things around you will become full of colors …

What Sugru is? Sugru is a silicone rubber modeling material that sets permanently.

How Sugru works? It can be worked in much the same way as modeling clay. It adheres to aluminum, steel, glass, wood, and even some fabrics and plastics. After drying for 24 hours at room temperature, it maintains a hard rubbery texture.

Sugru comes in sealed, 5 gram foil packets and Use Sugru to add grip to tools and everyday items, smooth over rough edges, even add non-slip padding to the bottom of electronic device/coffee mugs/anything you want! When it’s dry, Sugru is waterproof and dishwasher safe, meaning you can use it on just about anything.

 

This pouch comes with 12 mini-packs of Sugru material in 5 colors, two Sugru stickers and a 7-step booklet to help you become a ‘Sugru Guru.’ We like Sugru because it makes tools like pliers and screwdrivers more comfortable to use and also makes a great prototyping material! Check out the Sugru website below for examples of how other people are using Sugru to hack things better.

The smartphone itself is OK and the projector feature (the main feature promoted by Samsung for it) should be fun for Kids but not for any professionals like Samsung want to think. It is funny just to think to a sales manager tell to the customers in the meeting “just a moment to show on the wall some charts. I’ll project those photos with my smartphone…” ha. you got the deal, not…
