Playstation 3 (PS3) Movies in Blu-Ray plus video games made possible by Playstation 3 (PS3). Yes the video games are expensive but the benefits of this gaming console make the PS3 3 a family favorite. PS3 is like hard anodized cookware. Simply versatile!
Hulu.com Whether it is the sheer variety of free content or the limited commercial interruptions. Hulu.com has freed my family budget from the costs of cable/satellite television and schedules. Combine this free online service with HDMI input connections on televisions, and wireless internet, allows my family to watch television in multiple rooms, on various devices. I estimate that our family has saved $2,500.00 over the last three years by not having cable/satellite service. After our family income dropped nearly 60% in 2009 those savings are significant.
Redbox Once upon a time my family rented nearly 75 movies a year from Blockbuster (you can do the math this time). Yes, I too was concerned about new movie availability but Redbox has its bases covered. Reserve online or use your free Redbox iPhone app to check nearest availability. Plus you can return the DVDs at any Redbox. Whether you’re on a budget or not the quality of this service is a steal for $1 a night. I would never rent movies anymore if not for Redbox.
IPhone Applications “There’s an app for that!?” I have never been much for joining the bandwagon. I had no intention of buying and iPhone. I loved my blackberry curve too much. Fortunately it went on sale in my market for $99 with contract renewal and my husband convinced me to give it a try, and so it began. Now with just a wireless internet connection I can shop, read books, check my email, keep up with the news, update my social network status, check the scores, and listen to Pandora. Pandora internet radio is my daily cup of coffee.
Dual Temperature controls in the car are essential for people that love a peaceful road trip, or women experiencing menopause, can relate to this one. Your riding companion is in the passenger in a fleece blanket while you sport a t-shirt and flip flops. Maybe it is barley winter and your children are in the backseat that never quite gets warm enough. Thanks to dual temperature control the front seat and back seat, or the driver and passenger sides, can have completely different temperatures.
