WikiWine Bottle!

                      Wine bottle

Traveling around San Francisco with my friend Liz, we decided to get a California specialty, Two-buck Chuck (really cheap wine) from Trader Joes. Being a really cheap wine, I thought it would be a “twist-off”. However, when we got back to the hotel room (to read our feeds, and catch on up Social News <cough-geek-cough>) we discovered that this gross-cheap-wine has corks!

I instantly remembered this happening to me before, and giving up. Being that my only option would be to go downstairs from the hotel and maybe ask a seedy bar if they could help out, I thought … “Duh! There must be a way to open this bottle without a corkscrew”.

I instantly did a Google search, and thought about the SERPS. This was an interesting search I was doing, and I would’ve changed the wording around but I wanted this specific phrase. I wanted to go with LifeHack because I have trusted their content in the past, at the #4 position. And strangely there was a Metacafe (not a Youtube) video. But the most helpful link was the WikiHow results. Having never used Wikihow, I was skeptical as usual but this site gave me 6 different ways to open my wine bottle. The page was simple, the content I was looking for and 6 Ads by Google. Just how I like it 🙂 Might be a community I will be joining in the near future.
Now I am happy drinking my wine!liz

However, The only thing WikiHow didn’t mention is how much the process of opening the wine bottle without a corkscrew would hurt my friend’s poor finger.


BevyTech’s Gadget Bottle: it is perfect for the gym!

November 3, 2007

Finally the solution to my work out headache! I never want to bring my bag with me to the gym but definitely want my essentials: Ipod, Phone, Water.

Well the Ipod is best when it is affixed to your arm or your clothing. But my phone would always fall on the floor while I was on the treadmill or the elliptical due to the movement of the machine. Obviously the last thing I want is for my phone to fall on the floor. It is a valuable part of my existence and more important than friends and family. Ha.

So today I found this post about The BevyTech Gadget Bottle.

I do not have the bottle yet but just from the pictures. I could tell that maybe a better bottle could have been used. My favorite water bottle is the Nalgene because it literally just feels so good to drink from them and they come in cool colors and sizes and will attach to almost anything.

There other styles of the Gadget Bottle or are you planning other products. They are top secret. They are working on having them ready for sale in March 2008.

Custom orders will be not be available until spring 2008. Of course, I still love my Nalgene 🙂
