We are all becoming ever familiar with online shops that are member exclusive. Especially those where you can join regardless of who you are, you just have to go through a pesky registration process. Well, one online shop is taking that marketing strategy, but adding in their own little twist. SneakPeeq is a new website where each day you get around 20 or so “peeqs” that let you peek at the price of the item you are interested in. You earn badges and in effect cool deals along the way. Get this, for signing up you get $10 + a free welcome gift that is a nice little ring. Now, I’m a guy, so I felt a little left out with the welcome gift, but I signed up for it anyway to test and see if it was in fact 100% free as a welcome gift, and in fact it was. Already got the ring in the mail, have no use for it, but if I may make one suggestion to them, add a welcome gift that works for guys or girls or an option for something else for guys. Regardless, it is free, even shipping. I also found that when you go to place your first order and use your $10 credit, you can do a quick option to post to Facebook and you will also get free shipping. I got a Bamboo Bottle that cost around $20+ for literally $4 after my credit, free shipping, and a discount for liking their Facebook page. So if you’re looking for some amazing items, on an affordable budget, check out SneakPeeq!
Have you been searching for something new and original to listen to lately? Does everything on the radio sound the same and leave you hanging? If you answered yes to the previous questions, don’t worry the search is over. Canadian electropop star Lights recently released her second album, Siberia, and the sound is bigger and better than before.
Even if you are not familiar with Lights, this album is a great way to get introduced to her unique sound. It begins with title track, Siberia, and it immediately sets the album up for success. Her vocals are light and almost ghost-like along with lyrics that will get stuck in your head (in a good way). Lights also incorporates dubstep on a few tracks. At first, I thought this would affect her soft vocals, but it adds an element of surprise. Siberia has several tracks that are worth mentioning; for example, Toes, Banner, And Counting…, and Peace Sign. Each of these songs has a good beat, powerful lyrics, and conveys an emotion.
Not all artists are lucky enough to produce an album that has something for everyone. This album is pop, electro, indie pop, dubstep, and it also features rap. I highly recommend purchasing Siberia on iTunes so you can experience it for yourself.
Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, died on October 5, 2011, losing a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He passed peacefully with his family members surrounding him. He was only 56 years old.
In 1976, Jobs co-founded Apple and marketed the world’s first successful personal computer, the Apple II. He changed the worlds of computing, recorded music, and communication.
The world has truly lost a visionary. No one is quite sure what Apple will do without Jobs. He was a true genius and innovator. He was also a good human being according to his friends and family. He will truly be missed.
