Three Reasons why you need an internet TV Box

For those of you who are not aware you don’t have to pay big monthly subscriptions to the TV companies to get all the channels out there. Over the last few years there has been an increase in internet TV boxes which have steadily improved their capabilities to become a full entertainment system in a box. Here is five reasons that internet TV boxes have become so popular in the last year to two years:internet tv box

1. No more TV Bills

For a full TV package the bill can be pretty price and nearing the €100/month mark. This doesn’t seem like it is going to go down anytime soon and has even gone up in the last year. With an internet TV Box you don’t need to be paying a subscription, you simply buy the box and everything works via the internet. This means you can save over €1,000 per year by having this internet box.

2. Have all your favorite shows on demand

On top of paying a hefty TV subscription half the time there is nothing decent on to watch. With the internet TV Box you have thousands of movies and shows on demand so can watch them any time.

3. No more advertisements

It is estimated that 30% of TV air time is advertisements. That is a huge percentage when you think of how much people watch TV each week. With the internet TV box you will have barely any advertisements and can simply enjoy your favorite TV shows.

An internet TV box will change the way you entertain yourself whether you are a TV addict or just like the occasional movie these devices give you full control over your entertainment systems.

Selfie Stick Update!

I am just following up on my earlier post on April 20th telling my readers that I got a selfie stick but at the time I didn’t have much time to play around with it. Well that was obviously two weeks ago and I brought my selfie stick on it’s first trip since. I went to Galway recently with a few friends of mine just for a weekend and we had a great time.

We decided to go on a whim so didn’t have much organised and we booked a hotel which worked out at about €16.00 each for one night which is pretty good. You can’t really ask for cheaper than that! While we were there we went to salthill which is about 8 km’s from Galway city. We brought my car so it was pretty handy to take a spin out and have some lunch. After that we went back into the city and got some dinner as well as went out for the evening.

I didn’t bring my selfie stick on the night out obviously as even though they can fold up very well it would still be a pain. I got my selfie stick from the which is Ireland’s only selfie stick shop online I believe. I did get some great pics of my friends and I out at salthill though so when I get a chance i will upload them from my phone. For the moment though I am shot so it is bed time! Peace out.

Using the Tefal Actifry Fryer – a Guarantee for healthier fried food!

Frankly speaking, most of us love the taste of fried food (chips in particular). As strange as it may sound, even though the deep frying of chips is known to bring out a crispy golden texture, truth is, it is not very good for your overall health. What’s more, it is impossible to enjoy fried food on a daily basis under the pretence that you are on a healthy diet. In spite of the above however, there is some good news, this is the fact that: there is an alternative revolutionary fryer which guarantees you a chance to make your fried food healthier.

black tefal actifryInnovate cookware company Tefal recently introduced the Tefal Actifry Fryer which most people who have had the chance to use have openly admitted that it produces quality fried food while at the same time using very little oil which as a matter of fact is very healthy. Tefal’s fryer has proven to be a completely revolutionary fryer which has the capacity to cook a fairly large amount of chips (enough to feed four adults) yet using only a single spoon of cooking oil. This use of little cooking oil roughly results into around three percent fat in the food upon being completely cooked. As a result, not only has it made frying food much more economical, it has also significantly made it much safer to fry food plus cleaning the fryer is also very easy compared to other common traditional deep fat fryers.

It is equally worth noting that, just like traditional fryers, using the Tefal Actifry Fryer is not only limited to cooking chips, this is because the fryer can also be used to prepare an assortment of other meals e.g. meat products, fish, stir fry veggies sometimes even pudding just to mention a few. The non stick tefal pan makes it very easy to cook almost anything since it rules out the possibility of having problems while cleaning the fryer.

The best thing about the Tefal Actifry Fryer is the fact that it is characteristic of a design which makes it very easy to use. This is clearly evident from the fact that all that you need to do is simply to add the food which you would like to prepare and then add a small amount of cooking oil, preset the fryer’s timer and let the fryer do the rest. When the food is ready the fryer’s in built alarm will alert you. Take note, while using this fryer; forget all about preheating the pan or better yet rotating food in person since the fryer is designed to do all of that for you. In case you are interested in following up on the status of the food being cooked you can easily do so by looking through the see through cover lid at the top of the fryer. In addition to the above, there is also an odorless filter which means that your kitchen will forever remain free from the smell of the food that you are cooking.

Even though the Tefal Actifry Fryer seems slightly expensive compared to other common fryers, truth is, it offer great value coupled with several benefits. Having looked online we found that the was the best value. In fact, this particular product delivers on quality owing to the reputation which precedes tefal the manufacturer (which is known as a leading manufacturer of highly innovative cook ware).

Get Your Selfie Stick For This Years Festival

Although I am a self proclaimed hater of all things social media especially Facebook I have fallen victim to the craze of selfies lately. I think I used to take the idea of the selfie a bit too seriously and always thought people that took them were self obsessed and self centred. Whilst this is still the case I do think that most people just take them for the fun of it rather than anything more self centred than the above.
So anyway..long story short is I ordered a selfie stick from because I am going travelling with one of my best mates in the summer. We plan on going to south east Asia and then continue on down to Australia and finally New Zealand. A lot depends on money of course (what doesn’t!) but we hope to be able to do at least four months but possibly six months depending on funds and how exhausted we are from all the partying!
When I get a chance I will upload some new pics I took with the selfie stick. A good group of us went out last Saturday night and even though I got some grief for bringing my “nerdy” selfie stick I got some pretty cool pictures with it and it turned out to be a great conversation starter. I don’t think many pubs and clubs will want people with selfie sticks in their establishments though as they can be used as weapons and have being banned in most football stadiums in the last few weeks so I didn’t draw too much attention to myself.
Anyway I will be keeping you guys updated with my travel plants and as I said I will upload some of my selfie stick pics in the next few days! If any of you have been to any of the places we are going all advice is much appreciated. Thanks.
