Why I Love Shopping on eBay

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of eBay for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

eBay has always been a destination for those looking for uniquely cool stuff at a great price. Almost since they launched in 1995 I've been a fan, but they've now taken things up a notch and created eBay Deals where they feature daily deals on everything from technology to home items. While there are a lot of great sites out there that provide similar services the thing I like about shopping here with eBay deals is that it isn't the "only" choice - it is an extension to an already great shopping experience. 

For instance, when I visit the site to look for cool tech gadgets or something like a new computer monitor I can check the eBay deals in addition to the buy now and bids. This gives me the freedom to discover new products and make the decision between brand and price. Though frankly from looking at the deals available right now there are some fantastic brand names including Apple, Samsung, Black & Decker, Dell and Lenovo, so you won't have to worry about only finding some knockoff brands you've never heard of.

Like many men, I dream about one day creating the ultimate mancave gameroom and eBay is a great place to shop, so I've created a guide to the "Top 10 Items For the Ultimate Mancave" to provide some pointers. While this is NOT a cheap undertaking, the beauty of eBay is that you can find unique items like antique glassware or neon signs as well as great deals on things like speakers, movies, video games, tablets, and video game accessories.

Solution to Carnival's Bottled Water Ban: Bring A ZeroWater Portable Filter

In case you missed it, today Carnival changed their policy and is now forbidding people from bringing water onto the ships and instead making people buy it from them or drink the tap water.

Thankfully though, there's an awesome product that I'll be taking with me the next time I cruise and that's the Zero Water Tumbler. For the past week or so I've been testing it out using San Diego tap water and it's been producing the same high quality of filtration that I experience in the full-sized pitchers but it is portable and convenient. Even if you don't cruise, this is a great item to keep with you in your backpack since you really shouldn't be using bottled water anyhow since it is pretty bad for the environment.

How to Travel Without Leaving Your Living Room

Sure, they've probably been saying that ever since the first TV signals started being broadcast almost 100 years ago but today it is really getting scary close. Forget HD, today the story is all about UHD or "Ultra High Definition" TV. These new Samsung SUHD 4K screens have 8.3 million pixels and up to FOUR TIMES the resolution of the 1080p TV you probably have in your living room right now. With this high of a resolution, the TV screen really is beginning to approach the point where it is like looking out a window. In fact, the resolution is so incredible that Royal Caribbean is installing 4k screens in their inside staterooms to serve as windows! From what we hear, these "Virtual Balconies" are so convincing that it is "almost as good" as having a real balcony.

The good news is that you can get this for your house now too!
