4 Car Accessories That’ll Make Your Car Safer And More Comfortable To Drive

4 Car Accessories That’ll Make Your Car Safer And More Comfortable To Drive

Some of us consider our cars as our second home. No matter what year your vehicle was manufactured and whether or not it runs on manual or automatic transmission, there are many reasons to be thankful for its service. It keeps us safe from road pollution, dry from light and heavy rain or snow, and warm on freezing days.

We consider them part of the family, give them “names”, and even have them pampered with car washes more frequently than we’d like to admit.[1] Judging a car by its exterior is the same as judging a book by its cover, but it’s what’s inside that matters most. It should come as no surprise that we’d want to make it feel even homier to stay in. And while we’re not suggesting you install built-in toilets or sinks in your cars (there are trailer cars and mobile homes for that), we’d definitely suggest you ramp up the comfort value of your car with the help of some great car accessories.

These four car accessories will definitely keep you in your car longer than you should, weather conditions aside:

1. AutoExec Wheelmate Steering Wheel Attachable Work Surface Tray

On a scale of 1-10, how hard is it to eat inside the car? Or get any urgent paperwork done without the documents crumpling or getting creased?

Whether you’re rushing to finish your report minutes before submission or trying to eat your takeout in peace (and without mess or spills), this attachable work surface tray can work wonders. Not only will it save you from messy meal mishaps, it’ll also provide you with an impromptu table in seconds. The only downside is that it’ll only work in the driver’s seat.

2. WonderGel Extreme Seat Cushion

After a while, no matter how much you love your car, every sitting position will feel uncomfortable. You might even find yourself suddenly regretting your decision to skip out on buying an ergonomic seat because you were afraid it would make you seem older than your actual age. Stuck in traffic for much longer than your usual commute time? This seat cushion will definitely make you feel like you’re sitting on a cloud.

3. Resqme Seatbelt Cutter and Window Glass Breaker

In case of an emergency, breaking a car window shouldn’t be too hard, right? Wrong. It can actually be as tough as they make it look in the movies. If your car was to crash into a lake or other large body of water, you could have the hardest time kicking your way out of the car, and harder still as it sinks deeper and deeper into the water. And let’s not forget about the seatbelt that jams and could keep you tied to the seat.

Not that we’d wish such unfortunate events on you, but this seat-belt cutter and car widow breaker comes in the form of a keychain, so you don’t have to worry about hurting yourself while it’s attached to your keys. And in the case of emergencies, this accessory proves to be well worth its value.

4. GPS Smartphone Bluetooth by iTrack Easy Anti-Lost Device

Say goodbye to wandering aimlessly around a crowded parking lot to find your car. You can also say goodbye to ever losing your keys again. This tracker isn’t just restricted to keys and car locating though. It’ll work on anything you attach it to. However, its coverage is limited, so don’t expect it to work from miles away.

When it comes to accessories, remember to invest in equipment that will give you peace of mind, not distract you. You wouldn’t want to be responsible for road accidents that occur while you’re behind the wheel. Most importantly, invest in AAA’s 42-Piece Emergency Road Assistance Kit.

We spend a good chunk of our days stuck in the car during commutes to and from work or school, that the least we could do is do what we can to make it a comfortable daily task. Road trips will never be the same again with these life saving accessories. Both for entertainment and safety purposes, the gadgets and gizmos above will definitely make your car feel like a whole new world – or at least a seamless ride.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
