Adonit is a brand that focuses on those Apple customers that are looking to expand the fashion and function options for their iPad accessories.

Backupify: Best Back-Up Option For Google Accounts

Google has become a key company in the technology world and, because our lives are becoming ever more technological, a key part of our lives.  Many of us have email, documents, calendars, sites and accounts, and contacts all with Google.  Many even have phones running Google’s Android operating system, which ties in all of their Google Apps and puts it right into their smartphone.  With all of this information being online and with one company, many seek reassurance that their data will be safe.

Hackers are after the data and details of all of us all the time, viruses can get into your computer and destroy what you thought was relatively safe, and sometimes you might just accidentally delete or change something completely by accident.  There are many ways you can lose data and it can be time consuming to try to get all of your contacts back, or what if you only had one copy of that proposal for work, and it got deleted?

Backupify has a solution that brings peace to your mind even if something were to happen to your Google account.  It offers automatic, daily back-ups of gmail, docs, calendar, contacts, chats, and Google Sites.  It also allows you to back-up immediately whenever you choose, if you want to make sure recent changes are saved.

The back-ups are stored on Amazon’s cloud storage, which makes sure there are redundant copies in several different places, thereby protecting against system failure.  At the moment, Backupify offers a free 30-day trial with no credit card information required.  Their regular pricing options are very reasonable as well.

If you have valuable information on Google accounts, check out Backupify.  If you like it after the 30-day trial, go ahead and sign up with them.  No contract is required, you pay month by month at a low price.  Enjoy the security of knowing that your data is safe.

Kern’s Nectar Juices High Fructose Corn Syrup

Kern’s Nectar Juices & High Fructose Corn Syrup

Just picked up a carton of the mango flavor of Kern’s Nectar Juice and the second ingredient is high fructose corn syrup. After water.

The ingredients for mango flavor, which contains 23% juice.

Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Mango Puree Concentrate, Citric Acid, Vitamin C(absorbic acid).

You can call Kern’s with questions regarding why they use high fructose corn syrup at (888) 655-3767. I encourage everyone to ask food companies to stop using high fructose corn syrup.

Kern’s made the decision, most likely due to cost savings to change the ingredients to include high fructose corn syrup.

What is high fructose corn syrup and how is it made. It is basically over-processed corn combined with glucose and fructose, we have no idea which HFCS variation Kerns is using in their products.

Kern’s Nectar Info:



To Whom It May Concern,

I am very concerned about the high use of high fructose corn syrup in your products. Could someone please explain why this is? Also, which variety of HFCS is used, 42, 55, and where it is sourced.
Please consider using other sweetners, such as cane sugar.
I will buy your products and recommend them to others when you stop using HFCS in your products.

Best Regards,
Victor Caballero

Featuring the longest parade float in parade history from Natural Balance pet food measuring at 119′.


This year, we’ll have a 116-foot long float set in a tropical floral setting. After extensive training, the dogs will actually surf on 65-foot long waves in over 6,600 gallons of water on a float weighing more than 100,000 pounds. A specially designed “wave” machine is incorporated into the design of the float and creates a wave every minute.

14000mAh battery?

To be released during MacWorld/iWorld not during CES.

Two new models possible. A smaller model.

Jan. 26-28, 2012 in San Francisco

Apple would kill it if they in fact release an 8GB version of the iPad to compete with the $199 Kindle Fire. This rumor we hope is true!

Verizon To Charge For Paying Your Bill (UPDATE: rescinded)

Just WRONG for a company to try to make extra money off the backs of those trying to pay their bills, that may not have the resources:
Verizon To Charge For Paying Your Bill starting Jan 15, 2012.

(UPDATE: rescinded)
After pressure Verizon has apparently backed off after negative customer feedback.

The planned $2 bill payment fee has apparently been rescinded, according to company reports.

So now we have a situation where companies will make attempts to see what they can get away with, if there is no negative feedback or they start to feel the pain of lost customer dollars they feel they can proceed to impose extra charges on customers.
This is just plain wrong. These tactics by large US companies are not to be tolerated and customers must be vigilant to prevent companies from even attempting these efforts.
Not only are companies seeing the effects of their actions but now like with BofA, Verizon has seen the power of customers, and as long as customers have choices, these companies will have to respond.
Just like with GoDaddy supporting/authoring SOPA, they pressure and financial loss to GoDaddy could be estimated to be in the millions with the transfer of approx 100,000 domains, the estimates could even be higher.
