♥ / Take WiFi Everywhere with Karma Go

A big thank you to Karma for sponsoring this week of my RSS Feed.

Frustrated by the constant struggle of finding reliable WiFi during frequent travels to the US, a rogue Dutch designer built Karma — a tiny box that allows you to bring WiFi with you wherever you go. It has no contract or monthly fees. You simply buy the data you need and only add more when you need it, just like you’d refill your car when it’s low on gas. Even better, your data never expires.

With Karma there’s no more hunting for an accommodating coffee shop to complete and upload a project, or working out of a dingy hotel room with expensive and flaky internet. Karma works where you work. It’s designed to get out of the way so you can get stuff done.

Pre-order your Karma Go now and receive special holiday pricing of $99 ($50 off the normal price of $149). Offer ends soon, so grab it while you can!

Send The Elevator Back Down

“If you’ve done well, it’s your obligation to spend a good portion of your time sending the elevator back down.”

K Desk

K desk  black&white

Now this kids desk by RAFA kids is a beauty! You see it closed in the image above but once the lid is lifted you discover another layer of the desk with rounded corners and hidden organizer. Perfect place to put notebooks, iPad or little toys and treasures. Vertical part is good exposition space for drawings, photos or important messages. I’d take a grown up version!

Those who were seen dancing…

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
