Free Canon PowerShot A800 wub 1,000 4x6 prints

As a holiday promotion, Black's Photography in Pacific Centre downtown is offering a Canon PowerShot A800 camera absolutely free when you prepay for 1,000 4x6 prints ($199.99 value). This works out to be about 20cents per photo, which is pretty decent. This may be a great gift to yourself for those that print a lot of photos. I used to print hundreds of photos so I wish they had this promotion going on before! This is a sale worth checking out and it only runs until the end of the month (November 30) so hurry into stores now! To see the flyer, click here.

CarrotLines iPhone App - Make Healthy Choices with One Scan!

CarrotLines is an iPhone app that allows you to scan food packaging barcodes to find out nutritional information quickly without having to read through all the labels. This is a pretty cool and innovative idea because everyone is always concerned about what ingredients are in foods, especially if you are trying to stay healthy or if you allergic to certain types of food. You can set the app to tell you what you want about a product - nutrition, allergens or lifestyle. Best of all, it's a free app! Just head on over to iTunes to download it onto your iPhone (or iPad!). When you're at the grocery store, just scan the barcode and it will tell you the information you want to know, based on what you selected and can help you make decisions faster about the products you buy. Don't have an iPhone? Don't fret, there will eventually be an app for Android users as well!

I had the opportunity to meet some of the people behind CarrotLines at the Vancouver Health Show a few weeks ago and was lucky enough to win a Terra Breads gift basket from them!

Terra Breads gift basket includes a box of Pecan Fruit Crisps (which are delicious by the way), a ceramic coffee mug and a bag of granola.

Accepting the prize at the CarrotLines offices.

Check out CarrotLines' website, and follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more details about what's happening with them! They also have a blog with all their event posts.

The Muppets - Movie Review

The Muppets are finally back on the big screen after a 12 year haitus. The story follows Walter, a huge Muppet fan, and his brother Gary (Jason Segel) who must help the Muppets raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theatre from being torn down by Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) who plants to drill for oil underneath the theater. The Muppets have all gone their seperate ways but Walter reunites them and together they put on one last show.

I'm a huge Muppets fan, so as soon as I heard there was a new Muppets movie coming out, I knew I had to watch it. I found the movie a little cheesy but hilarious. There is a lot of humor only adults would get and like most Muppets movies, there are plenty of celebrity cameos including Sarah Silverman, Jack Black and Zach Galifianakis. It's a great movie to reminisce about the Muppets and their history as it includes the original theme song of The Muppet Show, which aired on tv in the 1970's and 80's. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are always really fun to watch and the songs are catchy (Mahna Mahna plays in the credits!). Go watch it!

The Muppets comes out in theatres tomorrow, November 23rd.

Price Drop on Blackberry Playbook (Nov 18)

Attention all techies! The inevitable price-drop for the Blackberry Playbook has finally come. Starting November 18th (November 16th in Quebec), there will be a $300 price drop on all models of the Playbook. The new prices will be:

16gb for $198 (Was $498)
32gb for $298 (Was $598)
64gb for $398 (Was $698)

These are pretty decent prices for the Playbook so make sure you go early to ensure you are able to get one. Don’t let this be another HP Touchpad fiasco – stores may be out of stock within hours, though I think people may think twice about dropping $198 on a tablet. The sale prices seem to be only happening at Wal-Mart, though other stores may follow suite. Remember you can always price match at other electronic stores as well.
