About the Kindle HDX

Breakthrough HDX Display

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ has the highest resolution (2560×1600) and the best pixel density (339 ppi) of any Kindle Fire tablet, providing an incredible multimedia experience. The HDX display features over 4 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.

Perfect Color

Both the 7″ and 8.9″ Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect color (100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.

Better Viewing Indoors and Out

The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimizes the color of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see in any lighting conditions, including outdoors.

 KindleFireHDX

Astonishingly Light

At 13.2 ounces (13.5 ounces for 4G version), the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is 34% lighter than the previous generation. To achieve this revolutionary light weight, Amazon integrated the capacitive touch layer directly into the glass display, and created a unique magnesium unibody from a single piece of machined magnesium and a blend of glass and nylon—the same material used in high-performance race cars. The result is a light, durable, portable tablet.

Smaller Bezel, Cleaner Lines

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is engineered for increased usability, and features an all-new design with a smaller bezel, cleaner lines, and optimized button and charger port placements. Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is designed to disappear in your hands, so you can get lost in your viewing experience.

KindleFireHDX

Powerful Quad-Core Processor

Kindle Fire HDX tablets are the first tablets to be powered by the 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making them the first to clock in at over 2 GHz. It provides 3x more processing power than the previous-generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2GB of RAM, provides faster app launch times, quicker website load times, smoother multi-tasking, and better overall performance.

Console-Quality Graphics

The new Adreno 330 graphics processor on Kindle Fire HDX delivers high frame rates and console quality graphics—4x the performance of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.

KindleFireHDX

Custom Dolby Audio

Kindle Fire HDX uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound, and delivers easier-to-understand dialogue in movies and TV shows. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you’re doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a movie, listening to music, or talking on Skype.

Uncompromised Battery Life

With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 12 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. When you’re just reading, Kindle Fire HDX automatically powers down unused system components, extending battery life to 18 hours.

KindleFireHDX

Rear-Facing Camera

Oral-B ( @Oralb ) Black 7000 Offers All But The Kitchen Sink! #PowerofDad

oralb

 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Mouth care is something that I have felt strongly about for many years. This goes back to an experience I had with my grandfather as he was preparing for his death. As he was ill, in the hospital we had a conversation that ended up turning into talking about regrets and things that he wished he had done. In this conversation he mentioned to me that the one things that he regret the most in his life was that he did not take good care of his teeth which is why he ended up having to have all of his teeth removed from his mouth in his life. This was a turning point for me and made me really rethink the ways in which I took care of my own teeth. No longer did I feel that a normal toothbrush would do it for me, nor that I could fail to floss.

 

I preface all of this because I was very excited to try out this new Oral-B Black 7000 Toothbrush. Why, because this toothbrush provides a bit of everything for anyone, no matter what your dental health situation. When this first came to me I was impressed by the sleek design as well as all of the other bells and whistles that the toothbrush offered.

oralb

This toothbrush has a number of settings that will help any person no matter what issues you are dealing with. Whether you have sensitive teeth, you need a regular toothbrush, you want deeper cleaning, or you need some massaging action on your gums or other areas this toothbrush does it all. I have loved that it comes with a timer that will break your teeth      into four quadrants and you will know how long you should be taking in each of the areas. This allowed me to make sure that I was spending all of the time that I needed in each of my teeth which is important to me.

 

On top of this I found that the battery was very long-lasting. In using this over the week I did not need to recharge it once. At full power the toothbrush is quite powerful and I could feel the plaque getting decimated from all of my teeth.

 

All-in-all this is a toothbrush that gave me everything that I needed and wanted and I know that I will be using this for quite a long time in the future!

Klondike Kandy Bars Are Perfect For Summer! #KandyBar #WeaveMade #ad

Klondike-Kandy-Bars

 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

 

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and Klondike, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #KandyBar #adhttp://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH

What is better in the summer than ice cream With Kids? Klondike Kandy Bars with kids. Klondike has combined some very cool flavors into their Klondike Bars to turn them into an ice cream extravaganza in your mouth! I was lucky enough to try these and I found them at my local Super Walmart. I decided to pick up two of the three varieties even though I knew my kids would eat all three without any complaints.

The price of these was reasonable and I was impressed that the bars were larger than a regular Klondike Bar. My daughter started with the Cookies and Cream ice cream bar. In trying it she said that it tasted amazing and that she wanted a second one. Of course as a good dad I said “no” but I was happy to see that she enjoyed the bar itself.

These candy bars are a perfect summer treat for all, as these are not just for kids and they can be taken pretty much anywhere that you want to go! I highly recommend these to all!

Turtle Wax Makes Car Care So Easy @TurtleWax

Turtle-Wax
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Turtle Wax makes car care so easy. It’s summer and for all of those of us that live in the upper Midwest that means that we can get outside and actually take care of our cars ourselves instead of paying to have a lackluster job done on my car by the car wash that I have taken it to.

Turtle-Wax

Whenever I do go outside to take care of my car, I am looking for high quality products that really perform well. I will be honest and say that in waxing my car I have always used turtle wax because of the great job that it does and the results that it provides me always astound me and let me see that shine that I want to see on my car, as it is that shine that tells me that my car is protected.

turtlewax

In the products that I was sent I got to try a ton of other turtle wax products that I didn’t even know were on the market. I loved the Easy Dash and Glass cleaner as well as the Interior Cleaner. Both of these products made the interior of my cars simply glow on the inside and of course the exterior wax did wonders for the exterior of my car as I knew that they would and that they always do.

 

What is your own Turtle Wax Story?

Beautiful Flowers Anytime With The Bouqs! #Bouqlove

When you are in a relationship, whether it is marriage, or something else you want to keep it fresh and fun and for many that means flowers. Now you can get your old run of the mill flowers or you can go above and beyond to get flowers that have some WOW factor. For me, just recently I had the chance to check out a new company called The Bouqs. This company is set up to provide amazing blooms right to your door, some from the United States, but many from much more exotic locations.

I ended up trying out some of the flowers from their volcano collection. Why did I choose them? Well, first, they were colors I knew that J-Mom would love, and second, they looked beautiful. The website offers you three sizes to choose from. I got the smallest to at least try it out, even though the website recommended the second size. In receiving my wife’s bouquet I think next time I will spend the extra money to go to the second size as they say you get double the blooms!

The website was super easy to use and you can select dates that work for you in regards to delivery. I will warn you that for the more exotic bouquets, you have to order early as it is not next day delivery, as they are being shipped from quite a ways away, but what you get is exquisite.

The bouquet that we received (The flowers you see at the top of the post) was beautiful and was something that I know J-Mom loved. The bouquet we got has blooms that open slowly, so I know we will be enjoying this for sometime to come.

Another unique thing that this company provides is a monthly delivery service that you can set up so that your special person gets flowers every month or whatever increment of time that you would like to identify – cool idea!

If you have never checked out this company you should. Click here to see some of their amazing bouquets!

Rockport Shoes Offer Style & Comfort #RockportChallenge

Rockport-Shoes

 

I was recently asked by Rockport shoes to become a part of their inner circle. What this means is that over the next year I will be sporting some new shoes to try out and give you a taste of what Rockport has to offer you as a customer. For the first shoe that I was able to try as a part of this program I was given the Total Motion Moc Toe in Coach Brown. 

 

One question that I must ask each of you is whether you are the type of person that dresses up for work? If you do, are you on your feet a lot each day? If you answered yes to both of these, answer the final question, which is How do your feet feel by the end of the day? For me, I wear dress shoes daily and I do a lot of standing and walking around. By the end of the day my feet are exhausted and so am I. This is especially true when I am at events where I am forced to stand on hard floors for long periods of time. I find myself shifting from foot to foot trying to get comfortable, but only ending up more uncomfortable in the end.

Rockport-Shoes

 

With this in mind I chose to take the #RockportChallenge and try these shoes and compare them to my sneakers. Rockport claims that their shoes are as comfortable as your sneakers are, and I have to say, in starting this challenge that this would definitely be a first for me if the shoes were this comfortable. So, let me fast forward now. I decided to wear these new shoes religiously for a few days at work. I had a number of events where I was standing and walking and I contrasted these to my sneakers on another day. I have to be blunt and say that I did not honestly notice much of a difference at all between wearing these shoes and tennis shoes they were that comfortable. At the end of the day after wearing the Rockport shoes my feet were not tired, and instead they felt well supported and in complete comfort. This was really a shock for me because I was not expecting this at all.

 

I also was able to select ask someone to try out the same show that I tried. This go around I asked CC Chapman (http://www.cc-chapman.com/) to give it a go and see what he thought! Below is his reaction:

I try to wear dress shoes as little as possible. So, when I do they need to be comfortable and something I can wear all day and forget about them. I had never word Rockports before and I liked their fit and feel. These new shoes are definitely ones I won’t mind wearing in the future.” – CC Chapman

 

In researching Rockport Shoes more, I came to find that one of the reasons my feet were feeling as good as they were was that all Rockport shoes are equipped with ADIPRENE by adidas sport technology , making their dress shoes feel like a pair of running shoes.  One of the other things that was amazing was how these shoes looked because they were definitely dress shoes, not semi-dress, but true dress. I have wished in the past that I could sneak my sneakers into work, but with the fact that I have to wear suits everyday it is an expectation to look my best which means no sneakers. With all this said, comfort is key and after wearing these Rockport shoes I have to say that they definitely deliver.

The Toro SmartStow Recycler Mower Offers Power & Easy Storage

Toro-Smartstow-Mower
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Now that summer is here I find myself having to mow my yard again weekly and sometimes even 2X per week. With that in mind and with the fact that my push mower that I currently had was 13 years old and on its’ last legs. It still mowed, but was very difficult to start and did not mulch as well as it used to. With that in mind I was excited to start my search for a new mower and the more I read, the more I found that Toro was the way to go. Toro has a great reputation and though I had never owned a mower from them, I do have a Toro snow blower and it is almost 2 years old and still works amazingly well.

Toro-Smartstow-Mower

I was lucky to be asked to try out the new Toro Smartstow Recycler Mower and to share my experiences with you. With that in mind I put together the below video to explore this a bit more. I will say from the start though that this mower was so easy to put together. It took at most 10 minutes to put together. Once together and filled with gas and oil, the mower started with such ease. In the past I had to pull over and over again, and it was such a breath of fresh air to be able to start it in one short pull.

The mowing ability of this Toro mower was superb. I did have to make a few adjustments to the deck so that I was not giving my lawn a buzz cut, but once I did, the mower cut very well and the self-propelled aspects of the mower had a lot of go power. I have yet to use the bagger, but found it very easy to connect and disconnect.

Toro-Smartstow-Mower

The other thing that I appreciated with this mower was how easy it was to store. The handle on the mower easily unhooks allowing you to make the mower take up much less room. It even allows you to hang the mower in the garage to make sure that you are not taking up floor space in the end.

All-in-all I have been very impressed with this Toro mower and I know that you will be too.

Grilling Pizza With @Pillsbury Makes Dinner Fun

Grilling-Pizza
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

When you are looking for new ideas for dinner with your family Pillsbury has just unveiled a great new way to make a kid favorite, pizza. Whenever we have made pizza as a family in the past it always was the regular way, using Pillsbury crust and baking it in the oven. However, as it is getting warmer, I spend a lot more time using the grill and I love finding new ways to be able to make fun items on the grill as well.

That being said, I was excited when I read the following watched the below video that explained the steps to take to grill a pizza.

In watching this, I decided to try this out for myself. I found that the instructions were clear and it really did only take about 20 minutes in all. The biggest thing that you need to be wary of was to watch and make sure that you did not burn the crust by having the grill too hot (I did this on my first try). Once I learned my lesson I found that as long as you watch this, you are easily able to make a crust that is nicely toasted and grilled exactly the way you want it to be.

 

Once you do grill your pizza, you then top it with the toppings that you want. We went a bit traditional with half being cheese (for the kids) and half have sausage, pepperoni and onion. Be aware the the more toppings that you put on the longer that it may take to cook the entire pizza!

Overall, grilling pizza was fun and something that the kids could really get into making themselves, which is always fun, as I tend to find that the food they help make, they eat! I also liked knowing when was going into my pizza and having control to the ingredients itself.

If you have never grilled pizza before, I highly recommend it!

Below is my quick video showing the process I used to make our pizza!

Coastal Dog Offers Style & Comfort

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for Coastal Dog. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

coastal-dog

 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

 

Coastal Dog, a Massachusetts swimwear company that makes its swimsuits in the USA, has designed a line of anti-chafing swimsuits to help Men and boys alike. Made with a nylon Lycra blend compression short instead of the typical mesh lining, Coastal Dog swimsuits prevent the skin irritation that occurs after hours of time spent in the surf and sand. The style and cut of a Coastal Dog swimsuit evokes that timeless beach lifestyle and all profits from their sales go directly to charity.

For myself and for most guys I have always dreaded looking for new swim suits, even though I love to swim. Much of this surrounds the fact that they are not always comfortable, but they also tend to cause irritation that I am never a fan of. When I heard about this new company I was excited to see what they were like and to see whether they could live up to what they claim.

I tried out one of their suite and have to say that they are unlike any swim suit that I have ever tried. With the fact that it does not use the traditional mesh that most suits use. Instead the inside of the suit is most like bicycle shorts. That being said the swim shorts are very comfortable and fit me perfectly.

The other thing that I was very impressed with was that the company gives any profits made to charity. Most companies would never consider this, but this socially responsible company does.

If you like me are looking for a swim suit that is comfortable and cuts back on the irritation that typically comes with swim suits, this is definitely the suit to try.

For me, I will be heading to a lake house in late July and we have a family membership to our local pool, so this swimsuit will be given a BIG workout, and I for one am looking forward to it!

I highly encourage you to try it for yourself!
