Mimic GO: The World's Smallest Security System

Burak Yalcinkaya, the co-founder of one of the coolest devices Mimic Go. And so why don't I let Burak explain what Mimic Go is so that folks can understand.
Basically, Mimic Go is the world's first personal security sensor and alarm with GPS tracking for your belongings and areas. We are integrating a brand new technology, which allows constant internet connectivity. So you can get notified from anywhere and anytime in the world. Mimic Go has several different sensors from motion, temperature, vibration positioning, and have 120 Db alarm and light. And this is just the hardware side. We are using the global scene for internet connectivity.

Every single person on earth has different kinds of security needs. Some people want to secure their backpack, some people want to secure their bicycle, some people want to know if somebody enters their room, they want to get notified if somebody opens their drawers. Or even if their roommate is opening their pizza box, for example. The most popular, of course, is travel. They want to know that their luggage is all okay. They want to know that nobody's opening their backpack. They want to know that while traveling around the city their belongings are safe inside their hotel or Airbnb. They want to have that peace of mind because they are there to have fun. 

There is so much more to this little device. And especially for moms and dads with kids, I'm sure you'll want to listen to more of what Burak has to say about Mimic Go, the world’s smallest on-the-go security system. Complete security made portable. Protect all your things and your spaces with Mimic Go. From laptops to cars, backpacks, bikes, hotel rooms, campsites with advanced sensor algorithms for securing objects and areas anywhere, anytime. 


The Ease of Contacts Renewals with Simple Contacts

In a busy world, we often do not have enough hours in a day for basic self-care appointments—such as meeting with the optometrist to renew your contacts prescription. Simple Contacts is an app that allows customers to order new contacts in any brand, from anywhere (your couch, your office, or even the airport), in minutes.

You can skip the office visit while maintaining the care. Using a phone or computer, clients take a five-minute vision test, which will be reviewed by a licensed doctor, and then receive a renewed prescription. Appointments can cost up to $200 without insurance, but with Simple Contacts the vision test is a mere $20. It’s an incredible deal that gives you access to all the brands and types of lenses you’re familiar with.

I recommended this service to my assistant. The speed and ease of managing her eye-care were huge plusses for her, especially with its affordability. The need to constantly visit her eye doctor for refills caused her to switch to glasses for a while. She is ecstatic to return to using contacts now that she can avoid the hassle of waiting rooms and exorbitant fees.

Rated 5 stars over 5,000 times on the App Store, the reviews speak for themselves. While it does not replace a periodic full eye health exam—Simple Contacts’ test only verifies that your current prescription is still accurate—its convenience is unbeatable for those who prefer contact lenses to glasses. In addition to competitive prices and free standard shipping, there is a promotion for our listeners:

To save $20 on your lenses just go to simplecontacts.com/SAVINGSANGEL20 or enter the code SAVINGSANGEL20 at checkout. That’s S-A-V-I-N-G-S-A-N-G-E-L-2-0 to save yourself time and money with Simple Contacts.


Are Paper Coupons Dwindling?

Are Paper Coupons Dwindling? Yes. It's Not Your Imagination.

It’s been a slow fade for paper coupons and it’s not over yet. If you’ve been asking yourself: Are paper coupons dwindling? Yes. It’s not your imagination. And it’s quite a deliberate fade. Everyone from manufacturers to retailers to restaurants has really pulled back on printed coupons. By printed I mean the coupons that come in the stand-alone inserts in newspapers and those that you receive (or once received) in the mail.

What changed?
