iLike Speed Metal Bluetooth Headphones Review

Hey there.  It's no secret that I love music and I have several sets of headsets/headphones to match the occasion.  I want to lounge around?  I get some super comfy headphones.  I'm going out for a run?  Get the in ear sweat proof headphones.  Doing some work out in the yard?  Get the heavy duty, noise cancelling headphones.  I think that it's amazing the different styles of headphones that are out on the market.  That's why when a company comes to me and asks for my opinion on their headset, I'm super eager to give them a try and see how they compare to some of the others in my collection.  This time, our good friends at OPPO provided me with the OPPO Exclusive iLike Speed Metal Bluetooth Headphones to try out and review.  Though I already have a few sets of lounging around headphones, I was excited to get a pair of the iLike Speed Metal Headphones because it has one of the more unique designs that I have seen.  So lets not waste anymore time, so before I get into my thoughts and experience, let's talk specs.

Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery Blu Ray Combo Pack Giveaway

Hey there.  Scooby Doobie Doo... where are you?!  Man, I used to watch Scooby Doo as a kid all the time.  It was silly, it was mysterious, and it was just a fun cartoon to watch.  The Scooby Doo franchise never really took itself seriously and there were plenty of cameos during their run.  I think that its this carefree nature that makes the franchise so endearing.  Anyways, if you are fan of Scooby Doo and you love KISS, then I have a giveaway for you!  I partnered up with our good friends at PartnersHub to give the chance for one of you fine readers to win a Blu Ray combo pack of Scooby-Doo and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery!  The combo pack includes 3 copies of the film.  A blu ray copy, a DVD copy, and a digital copy (UltraViolet)!  To enter, all I ask is for a little reader interaction.

RFID Blocking Sleeves by BLOCKIT RFID Products Review

Hey there.  Have you ever had your credit card information stolen?  I did.  This was a few years ago when some criminal inserted some kind of card reader into the credit card slot at a gas station and managed to steal my information.  Luckily for me, I was alerted right away by my bank of an unusual purchase attempt.  They noted that I never shopped at said store and found it weird.  I told them that it wasn't me and my card was missing.  It was taken care of immediately and I received a new card.  Even though it was caught quickly, I still had to get a new card number, update all of my card information on forms, and make sure that all of my bills that stored my card number was updated.  It can be a pain to have to deal with.  This was the old school way of getting your credit card information stolen.  Now, some cards have what is called a RFID chip in it.  The RFID allows you to pay for items my simply tapping your card on RFID compatible retail locations.  Many fast food locations, supermarkets, and other high traffic areas have RFID compatible point of sale systems.  In a wireless world, it's the next step in credit card technology... but it's also the next logical step for credit card thieves.  Credit card thieves have resorted to RFID skimming.  Basically, a credit card thief will have a small RFID scanner and attempt to read your credit card information wirelessly.  Essentially, this is digital pick pocketing!!!  This is dangerous.  Especially since the thief doesn't need to physically touch you and only needs to be in close proximity.  How many times are you not close to a stranger?  Think about it.  Standing in line at a store, cramped into a bus or subway, or just walking down a busy street.  Someone with a RFID scanner can EASILY scan your card and you wouldn't even know it happened!  Fear not, though, friends.  You can safeguard yourself against this by using RFID Blocking Sleeves.  Our good friends at BLOCKIT RFID Products sent me two RFID blocking sleeves to try out and review.  Simply put, these things work!  Let me tell you about my experience.

Time to work on this chest!

Hey there.  One of the things that I wish I had more time for is fitness.  This past year, my fitness routine has suffered.  I don't have time for the gym, I don't have time to go run in the mornings (unless it's during the weekend), and I don't have time to do anything else but work.  Sounds like a bunch of excuses, right?  Well, I thought the same thing!  No excuses!  I have a body, I have arms and legs, have a heart, and I have a determination to get and stay fit!  So...  since time is a factor, I decided that I'm going to try several workout stuffs at home.  I've already had a great start with one hell of a jump rope but that's mainly for cardio.  I need something that's going to help make me look and feel stronger and nothing screams out strength like a well defined chest and arms!  And to help me achieve those results?  The Iron Chest Master by Ron Williams!  Our good friends at Iron Chest Master saw that I needed the workout and sent me the Iron Chest Master by Ron Williams to try out and review!  After a few weeks of building a better upper body, I am ready to give you guys the scoop on this awesome home exercise device!  So let's get right into my experience with this awesome machine!
