Learn About Absolute LoJack Before Your Laptop Is Stolen #DigitallyDark

March 17th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Absolute LoJack. However, all opinions are my own.

A laptop is stolen every 50 seconds. Just a little after 4am this morning, my friend’s 50 seconds of violation showed up. Her laptops were stolen. No it wasn’t during an over night home invasion, a thief watched as she packed her luggage in the trunk of her car for a 6am flight and waited until she went back inside to steal her things. “I noticed the trunk of my car was open and my suitcase, my laptop and my extra bag were all missing. Within 10 minutes of me leaving my car, someone stole my belongings, both my personal and business laptop and my sense of peace!”  After speaking with my friend about the ordeal and failed assistance from the police, all I could think about is how happy I was that she was safe, but how horrible she must’ve felt knowing that someone planned on violating her this morning.

Personal theft is real and more rampant than ever. More and more adults, students and children carry more than one personal computer, tablet or smartphone at any given time. You would never want to be in my friend’s situation and seeking assistance and solace from an unfortunate situation like this – fortunately with Absolute LoJack you don’t have to.

This past weekend, I participated in the Absolute LoJack Challenge in which I was challenged to go #DigitallyDark by giving up the use of my laptop for an entire 48-hours. The challenge was a healthy way to unplug from my usual 7-Day work week and I welcomed the break from starring at my computer screen with open arms. There were times in which I did want to quickly check email or update a status via Facebook using my MacBook Air but I resisted the urge completely. Although my feelings yesterday were nothing like the feelings that my friend encountered today – it made me realize just how much we are attached to our beloved smartphones, tablets and computers – more than ever before.

Never Lose A Call With The Panasonic Link2Cell System

February 27th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

“Oh, I’m sorry – the call dropped…” 

 

We’ve seen it before- spotty cell phone coverage in our homes, resulting in the dreaded dropped call. For those of us who have turned cell phones into our “all-the-time” phones, Panasonic has got your whole house covered with the Link2Cell cordless phone system.

 

Panasonic Link2Cell System

Panasonic Link2Cell KX-TG7874S, MSRP $149.95

 

The idea is simple: connect your cellphone to the Panasonic Link2Cell phone (which you can also use to make/receive landline calls) and never miss a cell phone call (unless of course you want to), never drop a call and get the best reception your home has to offer.

 

What is Panasonic’s Link2Cell?  Link2Cell uses bluetooth to combine the freedom of your cell phone with the convenience of a home phone. Panasonic Link2Cell is a cordless phone system that operates together with your cell phone, allowing you to make and receive cell phone calls though the multi-handset home phone with Panasonic’s unique bluetooth-powered Panasonic Link-to-Cell.

 

Panasonic Link2Cell System

I keep the Panasonic Link2Cell base at my desk and keep the others around the house.

 

The Panasonic Link2Cell base unit features a convenient USB charging port to charge your smartphone while talking on the Link2Cell handset. Worried about missing a text message?  The text message (SMS) alert notifies a user of received text message on your cell phone through an alert on your cordless handset.

Make and receive cell phone calls through the Panasonic Link2Cell handset- with or without a landline. Place your cellphone in the area of your home where you get the best reception then sync it up via Bluetooth with the Link2Cell handset and talk for hours without dropping your call. You can even link up to two cellphones to the Panasonic Link2Cell system for households with multiple family members to enjoy.

 

Panasonic Link2Cell System

You can store the remaining handsets anywhere in your home with a nearby outlet.

 

The Talking Caller ID feature uses text-to-speech technology, announcing the caller’s information in between rings – so you can hear who is calling from across the room without getting up.  The Panasonic Link 2 Cell comes complete with four handsets so you won’t miss a call, no matter where you are in your home.

 

Panasonic Link2Cell System

Keep your kitchen germ free with a dedicate phone instead of using your smartphone.

 

Panasonic Link2Cell System

Panasonic’s Link2Cell comes with four handsets to use throughout your entire home. Never lose a phone call again.

 

Want to win a Panasonic Link2Cell system of your own?  

Tell us where you’re always dropping calls and enter our Panasonic Link2Cell #SavedCall Giveaway below for your chance to win today!

Movie Giveaway: ‘Ride Along’ Starring Kevin Hart & Ice Cube Prize Pack

January 9th, 2014 by Lifestyle Staff

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man.  When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case.  Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.

 

For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter).  When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.

 

ride along

 

Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee.  But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.

John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story.  Ride Along is produced by Will Packer (Think Like a Man), alongside Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Barbershop) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam).

 

 

 

 

The prizes up for grabs in an all-in-one-package are a $25 gas gift card and a Ride Along T-Shirt, air freshener, and beanie. The merchandise is depicted in the image below:
