Win This! Viliv S7 Premium Mobile Tablet Powered By Intel

It’s terribly difficult to go without internet access — we go through withdrawal when we can’t get online — but who wants to lug around a laptop everywhere they go? We’ve become reliant on smartphones, but you can only do so much with a tiny screen and an even tinier keyboard. The viliv S7 Premium powered by Intel solves all these issues. This little computer weighs less than 2 pounds, has great battery life, and is able to access the internet the same way a laptop would. Your productivity and communication will be unstoppable, but, let’s be honest, it’s also fantastic for watching movies or entertaining your friends with the latest viral videos. [$579, Dynamism]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away one Intel viliv S7 Premium, but you have to work if you want it. Share the worst thing you’ve discovered about through online stalking before a date — and whether you went on the date after finding out that info — in the comments by 3:39 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 12. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

UPDATE! The winner of the Viliv S7 Premium Mobile Tablet is Fizzy for this comment:

“I went on a date with someone I met, yes, on The Frisky. (And no, it wasn’t CheeeeEEEEse, and to be fair to the man in question I’m not going to reveal his identity.) Before going on the date I knew everything about his dating and sex habits from what his kinks were to his opinions on stereotypical male behavior. One might think this would be beneficial. But in fact it was strange in a really predictable sense, and when I realized things weren’t exactly working out it didn’t make sense to me because everything he’d said in comments suggested otherwise. Needless to say I ended up not commenting for sometime and changing my identity.
Frisky ladies, I would avoid dating the gentlemen of this website for those reasons, as attractive as some of them are!”

Thanks for all your online stalking cautionary tales. Keep reading »

UPDATE! The winner of the Urban Outfitters V-Day prize pack is LadyMacBeth for this comment:

I have plenty of gut wrenchingly shameful stories, but anyone from my area could put me and my screen name together. It’s a small state and my exceptional creativity combined with my lack of self-preservation and poor judgment means I’m going to cling to the veil of anonymity. Here’s something that I’m not proud of, but hey, it worked…

When a certain, younger version of my PA moved into my dorm I cleverly deduced from the number of concert t-shirts he wore that he was a fan of something called NIN.  Went and got me a CD and played it with my dormroom door open so he would hear as he passed and hopefully notice. Of course he did.  The pained look on my face (I listened only to country music and filk at that point in time.) probably gave me away.  He said he knew something was up when I told him I found the CD relaxing.

He was a CS major and very willing to share software.  I was the first person in my family to get her own computer and I was thrilled by this – I’d been doing just fine on the Works program that came with the computer but after a two sentence conversation with the future PA I suddenly agreed that I needed something called Office installed on my computer. But, of course, I’d never done that kind of thing before and had no idea how to go about it…

A few months more of these “clever” schemes and finally our entire dorm took pity on my obviousness and his oblivion and took drastic measures. We’ll have been together 16 years this week.

Thanks for all your comments! Keep reading »

Cassette Tape Tie

OK, so it’s a little pricey for a tie, but pretty cool once you take a closer look. No, ladies and gentlemen, that tie is not made of mere fabric; it’s actually a whole lot of recycled cassette tape.This strikes us as the perfect gift for that music lover who “has everything” because, let’s face it, there’s a good chance he does not in fact have this. [Sonic Fabric Neck Tie, $120] Keep reading »
