Glider Gloves

I was watching the last episode of Webnation on CP24 News which is a Tech show in Toronto. The show had mentioned a pair of gloves called "Glider Gloves". Glider gloves are winter gloves for touch screen devices. As you all know I'm quite the smartphone addict when using my iphone to stay connected with my social network. I posted a tweet shortly after the show and mentioned that I would like to try a pair and the great folks at Glider Gloves have reached out to me with some samples in which I may giveaway soon to one of my readers. This is another example of the Power of Twitter.

More on the gloves, at first glance I thought they look like cheap gloves and was skeptical to see if they actual work with touch screens. Honestly, I thought they look like the cheap dollar store gloves (You know what I'm talking about). After opening the package, I slipped a pair on and they actually work to my amazement, I even try another pair of regular gloves and they don't work with the touch screen of my iphone. So I'm stating here that the "Glider Gloves" do work. The Glider gloves are meant to be unisex and can be worn on their own or inside a thicker glove.

If you want more info on where to purchase these gloves check them out here at Facebook/glidergloves or even Follow them on Twitter at @glidergloves

The actual website for all the info on locations and where to pick a pair up is here at GliderGloves


What are your Pet Peeves during the holidays?

December always seems to be a time of stress with all the holiday parties and family get-togethers and the rush to get things done before the end of the year. Here's a quick post of various "Pet peeves" from my Twitter friends. So funny and so true!

@ekochman The fact that as soon as Thanksgiving is over, all the radio stations insist on playing Christmas music all day.

@Amanda_Fraioli Getting 75 different boxes of Panettone that last until Easter.

@portu_gal shoppers who stop full force in front of street front store doors and on escalators and i realllly love when they glare at you when you end up slamming into them

@jgrdnr when someone gives you a lame secret Santa present (recently happened to me)

@SteffieEhm At anytime of year...people being rude to their grocery store cashier. A smile and a thank you go such a long way.

@clickflickca buying a gift before Christmas and find the same item after Boxing Day for half the price but no price match.

@briguy100 not being able to afford what people want for xmas!

@gwenstyles outlet and warehouse sales being so inaccessible to those without cars.

@sadiethefoodie People who leave their Christmas decorations up wellllll into March/April

@wellthatsdumb hearing the same 6 songs regardless of what store you shop in.

@jennelizhicks not a fan of the secret santa!

@Entripy My #petpeeve during the holiday season is crazy the parking lots...everywhere!

@nympsam I think it's the competitionish feeling about getting gifts that's my #PetPeeve. We put so much emphasis on it. Chill out ppl!

@mads_kassinger people bringing their 4 seat strollers w/no kids into stores when they're packed and running over people. Why.. Just why.

@TheRounder When Santa doesn't eat all the cookies I put out! Rude! LOL!

@jdojc when people start them too early. Like the first week in November

@KBTaylor Slow walkers on busy shopping days - seriously people, keep to the right if you plan on a leisurely stroll.

@Nancyjt My #Petpeeve: how crowded every place gets and how people forget about politeness and consideration.


Dentyne ICE baby!

If you follow me on Twitter than you know I talk a lot about #ICE. #ICE stands for Interact, Communicate and Engage on Twitter because it makes it more fun to use. It only made sense for me to talk about Dentyne ICE and their new promotion that ends December 15 because of the obvious word correlation and well it's a fun promotion.

So what is the promotion by Dentyne? Dentyne is offering a spur of the moment trip to Las Vegas for you and three friends. All you need to do is grab a pack of Dentyne gum and bring it to life at Only one trip is open for boarding at a time, so keep checking in before December 15, 2010 for the next departure. If you do miss your boarding call, don't worry! There are lots of chances to win. Follow @dentynecanada #dentynepar on Twitter and visit for more information.

As you all know, I just recently visited Las Vegas and was fortunate to experience the sights and sounds of Nevada. I'm hoping if one of you win you can extend the invite to myself. I know it's wishful thinking but what do I have to lose. So go out and get some Dentyne #ICE and get "Packed and Ready". Good luck to all of you :-)
