The Cup of Mojo Speaker is an accident waiting to happen

Cup Of Mojo

We all want better quality speakers, and it always helps if the sound-boosting device we get is cute. There are more options than can be counted out there which have different shapes, sizes and features.

Nextbook E FUN tablet runs on Windows 8.1

Having said that, it might be more common to make use of a tablet as a portable entertainment device, and the Nextbook 8″ tablet with Windows 8.1 from E FUN happens to be worth checking out since you do not need to break the bank at $99 a pop.

Green Starts Here announces the ShowerSaver

showersaverThe earth does have limited resources, but this does not mean it doesn’t have the capability to sustain all of us – close to 7 billion people, and growing. However, it would require careful management of the existing resources, as well as maximizing what we already have right now. Every little bit counts, and this would include making sure we use water as sparingly as possible. After all, fresh water is extremely limited in quantity compared to sea water, and you aren’t going to bathe using sea water, are you? Green Starts Here hopes to help kick in some sense of water savings with the ShowerSaver, which is a monitoring device that one would use in the shower so that the user can gain access to real-time information concerning their shower duration and water consumption.
