Kwikset 335 Strike Plate

If you ever had that irritating door knob that constantly gets loose, could it be time to upgrade to a lock maybe? This may not be a gift idea in the traditional sense, but if you know someone whose struggling with a stubborn door knob, maybe investing in an actual lock may solve the problem. It's perfect for bedroom, bathroom, with pocket type sliding doors. The Kwikset 335 Strike Plate will definitely come in handy.

Laptop Table Couch

Last, but certainly not least, we have something that I think everyone that owns a laptop can definitely benefit from, myself included. We have the Laptop Table Couch that can be used exclusively for holding your laptop so that you can avoid having to place a pillow underneath it so that you can have it sitting on your lap. (Or am I the only one who does that?) The table is also versatile, as you can use it as a food tray, reading table, and writing table. If all else fails, you can also use it as a hospital table, just in case they run out of them at your local hospital. There are different variations of the table, so to select the one that best suits your needs, please visit the deals page by clicking HERE!

I know these items were very non-traditional, but in the times we are in where saving every penny we can is at an all time high, these inexpensive gift ideas may be just enough to be thoughtful, not cheap, an not breaking the bank. I hope these items will be to some use to someone. Please look forward to future unconventional, but useful gift ideas in upcoming blog posts!

Affordable Car Insurance Quotes

In today's age, everyone wants to save a few bucks any way they can. Whether be on food, clothing, or entertainment, saving a couple of dollars or even hundreds can benefit anyone in these days. One bill that everyone can afford to see a decrease in is car insurance. If you live in a state where car insurance is fairly high, (like New York) then you definitely could use a discount or reduction in your monthly payment.

AIM Auto Insurance can save you anywhere from $50 to $500 on your payments, given that you have a clean driving record. You can also compare prices with other companies to make sure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck. If you have other assets such as a house, boat, other vehicles, you can rack up on many discounts by sticking to one insurance company. Another way you can save some money on your insurance is taking a defensive driving course. In most states, taking a defensive driving course can save you at least 10% on your insurance. 

You can definitely use the extra money, so why not get a quote to see if you can get a better deal on your insurance? You never know; you may be saving a couple of hundreds a year! Get a quote today! You can get a quote from AIM Auto Insurance. You'll be glad you did!

Amazon's Most Recent Kindle Devices

By Sam Jaim

Amazon Kindle
The Amazon Kindle is simply a handy e-book reader. More specifically, it is, in itself, a hardware, software, and network platform developed by Amazon which makes use of wireless connectivity enabling users to download, browse, shop, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other digital media. 

Several other hardware devices support this platform which includes a main “Kindle” line, and a parallel “Kindle DX” line. The latest Kindle device is the third version of the main line, officially termed as “Kindle”, but more often referred to as Kindle 3. It was made public on the 27th of August in 2010. Consumer reports state that the new display, polished with the E Ink Pearl Technology, is certainly superior to previous generations. 

The Kindle DX line, on the other hand, offers larger screens than the main line. The previous is advertised as more suitable for displaying newspaper and textbook content; but, no model preserves the print edition page numbers used when citing sources in school papers and scholarly research. Moreover, Amazon has introduced Kindle software for use on various devices and platforms, which include iOS, BlackBerry, Mac OS X, Android and Windows Phone 7, and Microsoft Windows. 

Another feature of Kindle hardware is its use of e-ink electronic paper display which features 16 shades of grey. This, in turn, allows for a longer battery life and easy readability. Contents for this device can be purchased over the web and downloaded wirelessly, in some countries, with the aid of either Wi – Fi or Amazon’s 3G Whispernet network. 

Whispernet is accessible without any fee or wireless subscription, although it can cost consumers for the delivery of periodicals when roaming internationally. Through a service called “Whispersync”, users can synchronize reading progress, bookmarks, and other information across Kindle hardware devices and other mobile devices. 

Kindle devices are available at Amazon. The 3rd generation version is initially priced at US$139. It connects to the internet exclusively via public or private Wi – Fi networks. Kindle DX, on the other hand, costs US$379. It has a larger screen and is the thinnest Kindle, to date. It is marketed as more suitable for displaying newspaper and textbook content.
