It’s About One place to organize..

A couple years ago a friend of mine lost her house to a fire. Thankfully, no one was home at the time, however they lost ALL of their belongings.

Family photos, keepsakes, treasures. Gone.

Once the initial devastation passed, the family was tasked with trying to create a list of all the items in the house for insurance purposes. Now, they had made a list itemizing most of their belongings for insurance purposes but had never given it to their agent and since it was in a folder in the house, it literally went up in smoke.

If only they could have had all that information stored online they could have had access to it anytime, from anywhere. That’s where About One can help.

Holiday Gift Guide 2011- Nomad Brush for iPad is perfect for budding artists

holiday gift guideMy daughter loves to draw.

Really loves to draw.

So much so, in fact, that I had to move my printer in my office to a high shelf so that she couldn’t reach the printer paper. The girl could go through a whole ream of paper in about 3 days I think. It’s also her love for drawing that has required me to stock up on crayons, colored pencils, and even markers during back to school time to last her throughout the whole year.

nomad playThis is why I was so excited when we got the opportunity to try out Nomad Play. It’s a paintbrush stylus for the iPad that is designed and scaled just for kids. It comes in 4 different colors and features unique designs engraved into the handle.

It’s great because there are no crayons, pencils, or markers to worry about. I don’t know how many times she has gotten up and her drawing has travelled off the paper and is partially on the table.

I’ll take “Locks” for $400 Alex

Are you tired of those clunky old number locks? The ones that have you endlessly searching your mommy/daddy brain for the number that will magically open the lock and let you get your street clothes out of your locker at the gym? Was that 3 to the left or 33 to the right?

Are you are always setting the combination numbers to your children’s birthday and now you have run out of children?

Are you constantly having to go through multiple keys just to get the lock off your bike?

Which ever the case may be, the answer is Wordlock!

Wordlock is the brain child of Todd Basche, Engineer and CEO. Todd was led to this brilliant invention, much like all great minds are led to their discovery. Humiliation.

“I had a small swimming pool in the backyard with a fence and an old combination lock on the gate. That lock was my nemesis. It seemed the hotter it was outside, the less I could remember the combo. One Saturday, I’m so frustrated by this stupid lock I try to climb the fence. And I’m halfway over, and I’m sweating, and I slip, and my swim trunks snag, and I yell, and the neighbors are watching me like I’m crazy. That’s when I had the idea for Wordlock…right after I pulled my shorts up.”

For many of us, words are much easier to remember than a sequence of numbers or which key belongs to which lock. Wordlock allows the user to set the combination of their lock to a word of their choice. Even “Poop”.



🙂 I just love their commercial.

As you can see, Wordlock has padlocks, bike locks, luggage locks, even big ‘ol commercial grade locks! So no matter what you need to lock up, they have a lock that will fit your needs.

The padlocks retail for $9.99 and can be found at numerous retailers including Walmart, Target, and Sears. You can also purchase them directly from the Wordlock Store.

As luck would have it, I get to give away a padlock to one lucky lock deprived reader!
