This segment aired on Great Day Houston on December 9 and will reair on December 15, 2009. I usually present fashion and beauty items on TV. This time, I shared some of my favorite things.
1. Need a vacation? JetBlue is such a fun airline. They fly out of Hobby airport and have DirectTV in each seat. And your first checked bag is FREE! You’ll see WiiFii on flights in 2010. www.JetBlue.com
2. Speaking of wiifii, HP Mini Netbook computers are the latest thing! They are perfect for staying connected when you’re away from home – check email, update facebook, watch YouTube videos, share pictures, or browse online. They weigh about 3 pounds and start at $299. There’s one to match your personality and style – a beautiful eco design by Tord Boontje (tort BONE-cheh), Sparkly Diva pink, or all biz black swirl. Check them out at www.HP.com.
3. The Flip digital video cameras – While you’re on vacation, here’s a great way to make the fun last. Make digital videos with The Flip in regular or HD. They hold up to 2 hours of video and come with their own editing software built right in. When you get home, just flip out the USB connector, down load your videos and software, edit it and upload it to facebook or YouTube to share with family and friends. From $149. Check them out at www.TheFlip.com.
4. IPEVO Kaliedo R7 Digital Frame – This is the most stylish digital frame! The IPEVO Kaliedo R7 switches from landscape to portrait and takes all kinds of input – flash drive, standard sizes of digital memory cards, USB connection from your computer. The coolest feature is that it’s also wireless, so you can stream images from your rss feeds, flickr, or your friends facebook pages wirelessly to your frame. $149 at www.IPEVO.com
5. ViewSonic Widescreen LCD HD TV – The Viewsonic VT2645 is ideal for fast action in movies, sports and games. It has multiple connectivity ports for all your multimedia connections and game consoles. $479. All viewers can save $130 on this tv and get it for $349! Go to www.ViewSonic.com/greatday for details.
