That’s how VoIP Works

VoIP Phone systems are in demand and there is a very good reason for it.  The biggest reason is the cost savings of the phone system.  The technology leverages the internet to allow you to make phone calls.  As long as you have a connection to the internet you can take your phone with you.  You no longer have to carry a physical phone. Soft Phone Apps can be installed on your cell phone or your tablet and you can make calls right from your mobile device.   The system uses your data plan to make the calls so you don’t use any of your minutes provided by your cell phone provider. As long as you are connected to a Wireless network you can make calls without using your data plan on your mobile phone.

VoIP Phone systems also the same if not better phone features compared to the POTS type systems.  These features are typically standard on VoIP compared to phone companies charging extra.

So are VoIP phones systems worth it ?

Absolutely!  The systems do require a stable internet connection and the call quality is excellent.  We wouldn’t recommend VoIP if you have an unstable network / Internet connection.  In case of an Internet outage most of these VoIP systems have a fail safe setting which will automatically call another number when system detects an outage.

What are the Cons?

The quality can suffer if the network isn’t right.  You should have a professional setup your phone system.

Is it a good Idea to buy a Coffee Maker

If you love coffee (like I do) this may be a “stupid” question.  But I have so many of my friends who spend a fortune on coffee.  My best friend spends $8 – $12 every day on coffee!  I never get tired of reminding him that he could get a brand new car for that kind of money!  He always replies with well I cant drink my car!  I have recommended quite a few excellent coffee makers to him but he likes to waste his money.  For most of us we can still enjoy our coffee everyday without going broke.   Investing in a Coffee Maker is the best decision you’ll make.   You can have coffee anytime you want it.  You save money by making it yourself and at a lower price, you save money on gas and most importantly you can get you coffee when your favorite coffee shop is closed!

I have a coffee maker at home and in my office at work.   I drink between 2 – 3 cups every day at about a cost of 50 – 75 cents per cup.   A bargain compared to a $5 cup at Starbucks.  There are many options available when you shop for a coffee maker but you find great reviews and guides at  They have extensive guides on various types and models of coffee makers.

I am listing some of the popular guides here

Remember you don’t need to cut back on your coffee if you are looking to save some money.  Just invest in a coffee maker and make your own coffee.  It’s fun, easy and light on the wallet.  I would highly recommend buying coffee maker compared to spending money at expensive coffee shops.

Now go buy a coffee maker and enjoy your coffee!

Looking for the best digital camera on the Market?

If you are looking to capture all those magical moments in your life you can not go cheap on a digital camera.   A decent Digital Camera can range from few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars.  It is important that you stay within your budget but invest the time in some serious research.  There are hundreds of websites that you can purchase the camera from along with lots of product review websites.  I have found a few on the internet and I’ll like to some of them here.  I like It is a simple site with some very useful reviews.  Here are some links to great cameras.

10 Best cameras to Buy:
I recommend purchasing a DSLR camera if you really enjoy taking pictures.  They are big and bulky but provide a far greater control over the camera.  You have hundreds of options to expand the camera’s capability.  Which will allow you to change the lenses and it almost feels like a new camera.  Their is a learning curve with these but you can find local camera classes which are an amazing way to learn how to use your camera to it’s full potential.  I own a few cameras but the DSLR by far my favorite.  Here is a quick video that explains different type of cameras.

One more important advice.   Don’t buy the most expensive camera and also do not go for the cheapest one.  Compare the options / features and then save up for the camera that will meet your requirements for at least two years.

Good Luck!

Lights Music Action – A Hollywood Shower Experience

Who loves waking up early every day to go to work?   Hey, who loves waking up early period?   I am definitely not a morning person and I am sure millions of people feel the same way.  When you jump in the shower most of us are still half a sleep, I know I am for sure.  A good shower can absolutely help you wake up and get you ready to rock and roll, or maybe not 🙂

Did you know that you can upgrade your shower head with a built in Bluetooth speaker and LED lights?  Well I just discovered this a few months ago and it absolutely has a positive feel to the morning routine.  I now jump in the shower with my favorite “morning tunes” and the shower changes colors and it totally wakes me up.  I can actually feel the energy of the music and the lights and it just puts me in a positive mood.  I am ready to get to work and tackle any problem I may run into.  It completely makes me feel relaxed.


You may ask what made me want to buy a speaker shower head with lights?  We actually rented a house on a vacation and the house had built in Bluetooth shower heads along with LED lights.  Everyone was talking about their shower experience and we were asking ourselves why we don’t have these in our own bathrooms.   The kids didn’t want to come out of the shower because they absolutely loved the colors and the up beat dance music.

We did a bit of research while we were still on vacation and ran across a great website dedicated to shower heads,  The site has reviews and recommendations of best shower heads and many other bathroom related products.  We were surprised to find out that we could get the same shower heads for less than a $100.  You can find Bluetooth shower head here If you want LED style shower heads you can find them


There are quite a few more options for shower related products and I’ll add direct link for you here.
