Idea of the Day - Quietline Ventless Washer Dryer

Originally published at encyclopedia beaglebotica. You can comment there.

In this world of high-technology, sometimes simplicity is the best design. That’s why QuietLine washer/dryers offer the ease of use and solid dependability rarely found in products of our time. Combine this with Quietline’s compact size and ventless design, and you have one of the most versatile combination washer/dryer available anywhere. Quietline Ventless Washer Dryer

It’s going to take some getting used to, but for a small space and the ability to put it in places you couldn’t for others it’s the best choice. energy and space efficient and you won’t have to move the laundry from washer to dryer anymore.

Idea of the Day - Compact Combo Kitchen

Originally published at encyclopedia beaglebotica. Please comment there.

Combination Kitchen with Refrigerator, Cooktop and Stainless Steel Sink Combination sink, range, and fridge

Did you know that there is a french term “the American refrigerator?” Many other countries feel the same. In some ways I think that our setup hurts us. We don’t go to the market and get fresh food as often. It seems harder to find farmers markets. We don’t spend as much social time on food.

I’m not sure the benefits outweigh all of the problems. Does a family of two need that much space? How long does some of that sit in there? How much sits so long that it just gets thrown away?

How much empty space is in your fridge right now? Are you better off having thirty condiments hiding unused on a top shelf than having a few that you use and enjoy? Is buying that super jumbo bottle of ketchup really easier than buying it more often? Is the savings that great.
If it’s down to worrying about saving time and shaving off a few minutes shouldn’t we reevaluate our lives?

Space isn’t at as much of a premium here as it is many other places so we don’t think about it. Next time you cook look around, how much of what you have have you used in the last month? How often do you have more than two burners going? If you do, more power to you, if you don’t, do you think that the extra space would be better used for something else?

eb will most likely be moving soon. Blogger has been good to me but I'm feeling the limits of it. A side effect is that I won't be doing daily updates for a few days. I know that you will all miss the station wagons :)

TV With MeeVee

TV With MeeVee

This is cooler than the other side of the pillow, MeeVee has a blog.

If you use MeeVee why don;'t you go take the survey on the site and give them some feedback.

If you _don't_ use MeeVee, start. Otherwise it's just midless channel surfing

Idea of the Day


I want one of these.

One thing I don't understand is why there's not a largerr version of anything like this. Maybe I haven't seen it, maybe it's because the whole point was minimalist travel but I'd live to see something with a touch more storage Posted by Picasa

MeeVee: Your TV Friend

MeeVee: Your TV Friend

I like TV. A lot. IT helps me escape my sometimes crap existance. It entertaines me. Sometimes it even teaches me. This is a cool TV guide that lets you see when shows you like are on, any channel that they may be on an shows you if it's a new episode or not.

It could do with a couple more features and some lessons in user interface but at the moment it's how I'm finging what's on when I'm not just furiously hitting the channel up button

Idea if the Day - Halfbakery

recent 3

The Halfbakery is a communal database of original, fictitious inventions, edited by its users. It was created by people who like to speculate, both as a form of satire and as a form of creative expression.

It can tend towards the silly sometimes but there are some great ideas mixed in

Movie Review: Happy Accidents

Netflix: Happy Accidents: "Ruby Weaver (Marisa Tomei) is tired of being the 'enabler' in relationships and has decided to give up the role of doormat. She's also on the verge of giving up on love. But a sweet, small-town guy, Sam Deed (Vincent D'Onofrio), changes her mind, and it seems Ruby's finally found a sane boyfriend. Or has she? Soon, Sam's divulging that he's a time traveler from the year 2470 … and Ruby must decide whether love conquers all."

I loved this movie. I'm a big fan of D'Onofrio so I may be a bit biased but still. I'm sorry I missed this on the big screen. D'Onofrio is at his quirky best and Tomei gives a solid performance that kept me wanting to watch.

A great example of science fiction by script instead of by effect.

Idea of the Day: PocketMod: The Free Disposable Personal Organizer

PocketMod: The Free Disposable Personal Organizer: "The PocketMod is a new way to keep yourself organized. Lets face it, PDAs are too expensive and cumbersome, and organizers are bulky and hard to carry around. Nothing beats a folded up piece of paper. That is until now. With the PocketMod, you can carry around the days notes, keep them organized in any way you wish, then easily transfer the notes to your PDA, spreadsheet, or planner.

The PocketMod is a small book with guides on each page. These guides or templates, combined with a unique folding style, enable a normal piece of paper to become the ultimate note card. It is hard to describe just how incredibly useful the PocketMod is. It's best that you just dive in and create one."
