No more lost luggage with Trakdot.

Do you travel a lot or does your luggage go missing a lot? Maybe it’s time you invest in a Trakdot luggage tracker.

The Trakdot is a small tracker that you put in your checked luggage and it can report, in real-time, city location to any smartphone or via sms.

The devic costs $49.95 and then there is a $8.99 activation fee and an $12.99 annual service fee.

In my opinion, unless you’re a frequent traveller this may be overkill, but if you are a frequent traveller or carry some very valueable items in your checked luggage this may be a worthwhile investement. A least that way you know where your luggage is “hiding” or let police know where it is “hiding” incase some dubious person took an interest in your traveling goodies.

What to buy men this holidays part 2

I hope you have enjoyed browsing through part 1 of this post but if you still haven’t found anything that tickle your fancy then keep reading because today I will bring you some more exciting gift ideas.

Working in the garage or the garden can be thirsty and dirty work and if you don’t want him to come trotting into the house and scratch around the fridge for a cold drink with his filthy hands then this mini cooler may be the perfect gift. Styled on the classic Coke vending machine this little cooler will fit just as good in the pool room or bar as well.

T shirts is always a good option too and there is no better one for the guy who loves getting his hands dirty than this one.

Or for the “kick ass dad”, this one.

For the men in your life that is a bit more fashion conscious there are countless options but if you are looking for something that is a bit unique I suggested you look past the high street stores. thanks to sites like Etsy you can now buy handmade goods directly from the manufacturer. If your man loves wearing a bit of bling I would highly recommend the bracelets and necklaces by a guy called Feihong. Here is one of his bracelets I love.

Another jewelery designer that you MUST check out is Thomas Sabo. Like all famous jewelers his stuff is on the higher end of the price scale but with his unique designs it is worth it. Here are some of my favourites.

Oh and while you are there you might as well slip something for yourself into the shopping cart.

Talk about fashionable stuff, I spotted this Wotancraft bag on Pinterest and I’m just loving it. Made from canvas and premium quality leather. It is actually a camera bag but I think your man can find various ways of using it.

If they have a games room or home theater a large bean bag will be just perfect. They come in a range of sizes and materials but I think the omni by Sumolounge is the most versatile.

Another large bean bag that would be perfect (if he has a swimming pool) is this floating beanbag.

One of my favorite gift ideas and one that I think is very unique and show that you’ve put some thought into his gift is a set of Custom headphones. These include some top brands like Sennheiser and Beierdynamic and Pioneer.

For the outdoor lover there are two products that I found that is worth your attention.
The first one is a fold up charcoal bbq that is such a clever design. With space at a premium when you go camping this little BBQ folds flat to become no bigger that the size of a notebook.

The second gift is for the more hardcore outdoors man or Bear Grylls wannabe. This Survival knife with fire starter will make sure they can survive in the toughest conditions or show of their fire starting skills.

So there you have it. I hope you’ve got some inspiration for your Christmas shopping this year. I would love to hear from you. What is the coolest gift you ever bought someone?

The Asus Zenbook UX 31 – One awesome Ultrabook

 by George Cinna

I recently took the plunge and splurged out one one of the new Ultrabooks by Asus.  After doing some research I found that it was the netbook that best served my needs.

The ASUS ZENBOOK looks like nothing you’ve ever seen. It feels like nothing you’ve ever felt. It’s breathtakingly beautiful. It’s ultra-thin – with a minimum thickness of only.12″. It’s ultra-light – the brushed aluminum alloy body weighs only 2.87lbs. It’s ultra-fast – powerful 2nd Generation Intel Core i5-2557M CPU, SATA 3.0 128GB SSD and USB 3.0. It resumes active mode in just 2 seconds, and the SonicMaster Audio delivers astounding sound.

I particularly fell in love with the “instant-on feature” Which means that the netbook resume within 2 seconds.

How long is 2 seconds?

Well by the time you opened the Zenbook it’s ready to go, it’s that quick and if you are like me and hate watching computers load than you will love this feature!!!

These Asus Ultrabooks are available at any good tech stores but to save you time and money just click the button below to get it from Amazon.
