Who knew but apparently May 31st is "World No Tobacco Day." How should we commemorate the day? Weeeelll, maybe if the smokers among us all "Kick the butts" and take part in a tobacco-less day by using South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes, we'll have a healthier planet, without the flame, ash, tobacco, tar , carbon monoxide, or offensive odors found in traditional cigarettes.
In honor of "World Tobacco Day" South Beach Smoke has partnered with the World Health Organization to encouraging smokers around the world to "kick the butts" and take part in this tobacco -ess day.
Besides the fact that they will make you much more popular in social groups, the battery-powered electronic cigarette, delivers vaporized nicotine without tobacco, tar, or other chemicals. (But keep in mind nicotine itself has health risks of its own and is extremely addictive.) The battery heats a cartridge of liquid nicotine solution, creating an aerosolized mist that the user puffs, or "vapes."
According to our "testers," though e-cigarettes emit no smoke, they deliver an experience like smoking, including the way they're held and the LED tip. They liked the South Beach Smoke in particular, especially the feel, taste and the advanced Lithium-Ion battery technology. (This proprietary battery has been engineered to provide maximum vapor, longer battery life and superior performance, says the company.)
No word on whether they help people quit the nasty habit, but it sure makes them easier to be around.
Believe me, we understand. You want the latest gadgets. We have so many old iPhones, iPods, iPads and game consoles we could stock a gadget store.
But then we figured out how to trade-in our old gadgets and use the money for our latest obsession. NextWorth makes it easy to trade in old gizmos either by mail (UPS) or at a retail store and you can even chose how to be paid - via PayPal, check, or gift card. (We use Target, where they'll give you an instant in-person quote.)
Since NextWorth has updated its iPad pricing --now, you can get up to $500 for your used iPad, and up to $360 for your used iPad Mini -- it makes sense to get what's next by selling what's old.
If you owned the brand-new simplehuman Sensor Mirror, you'd know the answer to that question. (It's YOU, btw.)
Think of those pull-out mirrors you sometimes find in hotel bathrooms that magnify your face to scary proportions: it's NOT one of those, but rather a very clever sensor mirror that lights up automatically as your face approaches, and which uses a " tru-lux light system" that simulates natural sunlight.
This prevents the dreaded "hooker" look; you know, when you've applied your make-up by a dim bathroom light. By allowing you to see full color variation, you can tell when your makeup is color-correct and flawless. (The mirror is also distortion-free at 5x magnification so you can see your entire face at once, which is what you want when applying make-up. )
And like most of your favorite gadgets, it's wireless and quickly recharges with the included USB cord and adapter. (No cords on the counter-top!)
Unlike traditional bulbs or fluorescent lighting, the long-lasting LEDs won't burn out or diminish even after many years of regular use, says simplehuman.
Around the office, we call it the "magic mirror." If you haven't gotten Mom something for Mother's Day, this would be a perfect gift.
