Posts - 2 Slice Retro Toaster Review

So my old toaster that I had from college finally died on me.  I have had that thing through many changes in my life: college, girlfriend, marriage, creating a you can just image the heartbreak.  All kidding aside it was time to pick up a new one as you don't want to cross a 5 year old without their waffles.  A friend told me about ToBox and how they have great products and great pricing.  They even show you the coast breakdown and what they earn on the products.  So after comparing them to the big box stores it was time to give them a try.  I was even more impressed once the product arrived, but to learn more watch the YouTube video below.

Currently you can get this toaster for $12, which is crazy.  Use the link below and promotion code as the toaster is on sale for 50% off and the code gets you another 50% off.  Enjoy


QLYX Smart Cellphone Mount Review

Today's I want to share with you my experience and review of the QLYX smart cellphone mount.  Below is the full video review and screen shots of the app. as of the writing of this blog post.
Right now you can pick up a DEAL HERE and use code QDRIVE

The mount is a solid mount for your phone.  The metal backing comes in several great color options that will for sure blend in with your phone back or case.  The mount also held with no issues on the local rough streets.  Overall I could not be more happy with the product when it comes to the mount.

As for the app, QLYX has some work to do.  First up it took a few tries before I got signed up, the screen shot below was my first few tries.  After that I was in and smooth sailing.

The main screen is straight forward and easy to read as you can see below.  Some tweaks I would like to see here is the ability to move things around.  This is a driving app after all, so I would like to see the map screen first over the weather.

Once in the app…
