End the Squabbling with Spliddit
Let’s talk about a serious issue right now. Roommates. Living with people you don’t know can be very challenging. And cause stress. Even living with friends can cause strain on your existing relationship! It’s no good when everyone in the house is thinking that the others are taking advantage of them. Or that one person is getting more use out of the best spaces in the house than everyone else… and still only paying the same amount.
Or how about splitting up STUFF? A family member dies and the rest of you have to decide who gets what. It’s an emotional time already and often fights begin to break out.
Life can just be so unfair! That’s where Spliddit comes in. Each of the parties involved will be given the opportunity to assign a value to the items. Whether it’s a piece of art or a guitar or a room in the house. Then, the system uses a special algorithm to evaluate what each participant entered and divide it appropriately. It’s a mathematical equation. You can’t argue with that, can you?! Now… everyone’s happy.
Sonos Brings Peace and Harmony to Your Family
And to keep the circle of love going, Sonos is going to be enabling the ability for you to add multiple accounts to your Sonos system. So you can have YOUR music. Your roommates or your spouse can have THEIR music. And the kids can have their teeanage beep-boppy songs that you can’t stand. You’ll be able to flip back and forth between them. And it won’t affect recommendations or flow. The only bad thing? You can’t get it until later this year….
Ocean View Cabins Buried Deep Within the Ship
I’d love to listen to the Maker Movement Manifesto – a book all about innovation… while on a cruise ship laying in my cabin looking out into the beautiful sea! Unfortunately, I can’t afford a cabin with a view and balcony… as most people can’t! I mean, c’mon!!! But that’s okay now! Cause Royal Caribbean decided everyone deserves a view whether you can afford it or not. They’re beginning to outfit their ships with 80” 4K TV screens. At first I was like.. meh… a loop of a video of sea? Not THAT cool. But then… I found out that they’re sending a live feed from cameras mounted around the ship. So you’re ACTUALLY seeing what’s outside. If a giant sea serpent were to swim along with the ship and everyone’s talking about it…. you’ll have seen it too! So you won’t be left out. Pretty cool!
Low Cost Incubator Wins Dyson Award
Another cool thing? Innovation that saves lives! You may know that the Dyson Foundation gives out innovation awards every year. And this year, it went to a British guy, James Roberts. He’s 23 years old and created a low cost incubator for premature babies. Apparently incubators cost $45,000, currently. Each. That means when you walk by a premie ward in the hospital and you see all those babies in there… it cost that hospital… oh… 45, 90,000, 135… like 67 bazillion dollars! That’s expensive! And 3rd world countries, or places in remote areas without a lot of money… just can’t afford that kind of equipment!
So… James created MOM. The middle of the device is soft plastic that connects to the ends which are hard plastic. The two ends can fold together to be portable. And when they need to use it, they expand and lay the baby in there. It can use either power from a regular outlet or even alternative sources… maybe like a car battery?? And at the end, you have a hopefully healthy and happy baby.
