Yoga Book the Lenovo’s new 2-in-1 tablet winner of the ‘reddot’ design award 2016 brings a breath of fresh air to this uninspired segment where every device resembles another. The Yoga Book is beautifully designed and reinvents the way we use a tablet.

A tablet to replacing the paper notebook is wishful thinking but with this hybrid it’s a reality. It can be used as a laptop, tablet, media stand or as a note taking device.

Note Saver

The touch keyboard converts to a drawing tablet that you can use to draw or take notes. This enables you to do your day-to-day tasks by typing text using the backlit keyboard or quickly take and save notes using the pen stylus to write on the flat surface.

Using the Real pen you can draw with many pressure levels. Draw freely without having your hands covering the drawing, messing with it or triggering other options unintendedly.

The Note Saver app can store your notebooks where you can draw or save your notes.

Type mode

The Halo keyboard can be used if you switch to type mode. This haptic feedback keyboard has an auto-complete and feature that allows you to type fast and accurately.

It is very handy to have a keyboard when you need one and having the full screen available to display text.

360 degrees hinge

The Yoga book can be opened in different angles. As a laptop for productivity, flat for creative mode and note taking, as a stand to enjoy video or as a tablet.lovono_yoga

Save With Shareagift Towards… A Gift For A Rainy Day

We love finding out the different ways in which people use Shareagift. This week we caught up with Rebecca, and she told us about how she used Shareagift to collect money online for her friend’s leaving gift.

What gave you the idea to create a page and start collecting money for your friend Danella?

Our friend Danella has decided to leave Toronto and live in Costa Rica for a year.  She has a large circle of friends and we thought it would be the best idea to pool funds and buy a Visa gift card for her to use as a ‘rainy day fund’ while she is away.

Why did you choose Shareagift?

We chose Shareagift because it allowed us to collect funds from her friends by sharing the direct page link.  You can invite people through email or paste the link on social media.  I like that you can customize your page and add pictures, but most importantly, I love that everyone can see the running total, that way the collection process is transparent.

How helpful has this page been in collecting money together?

It was super helpful as I was able to receive collections from some of her friends that I had never met. Instead of meeting up with friends to collect money, everything was done online.

How much of an impact will this gift have on Danella?

This money is going to provide her with a rainy day fund, she will be extremely grateful as she begins this new adventure in her life.

If you were to set up a new Shareagift page what and who would it be for?

I could see myself setting up a Shareagift page for a friend’s upcoming baby shower.

If like Rebecca you have a friend who is moving away, or if someone is leaving work, a Shareagift page is a great way to collect money online with friends towards an amazing leaving gift, to show them how much you are all going to miss them!
