February is Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month

Each February is Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month, and while we think you should probably check behind the sofa more than once a year, we still think it’s a clever idea. There are a few reasons why you should shift your settee:

 

To clean up.  Do you clean your sofa regularly? (You don’t have to answer that) But take this opportunity to give it a good scrubbing. Fluff the cushions, get new throw pillows, and maybe even make a few bucks by gathering loose change.

To try a new look.  How long has your living room been arranged the same way? Now is the time to move things around and shake it up a bit. Adjusting the layout of the furniture in a room can make if feel like a brand new space!

To find lost things. Remember all those things that “grew legs and walked away on their own”? You just might find them in the sofa. Your car keys, favorite bracelet or even a cell phone might just turn up in there (remember, if you had a Wireless Leash, your phone wouldn’t have been lost in the first place… just saying).

Do you plan to pull your couch off the wall this month? Let us know if you find any lost items in there!

Paris Hilton Lost Another Cell Phone

She’s an heiress to a hotel dynasty, a television and movie star, a writer and a recording artist. Apparently keeping all of that straight, along with an elite social life, isn’t an easy task. That’s probably why Paris Hilton reported last week that she’d once again lost her cell phone(s).

As she deboarded a plane in Manila, Paris frantically looked through her bag trying to locate her two iPhones. Now, how you lose two iPhones on a private flight is beyond us, but we have to take this opportunity to ask, “Paris, why in the world haven’t you invested in a ZOMM?”

If you recall, back in 2005, Paris’ phonebook was released to the public. The list included hundreds of celebrities’ personal cell numbers, including Eminem, Fred Durst, Lindsay Lohan, and Twiggy. While most people believe this was result of a hack and not Paris losing her phone, we’re still convinced she needs one.

And Paris isn’t the only celebrity who’s fallen victim to the lost phone blues. In 2007, Ashton Kutcher lost track of his phone while on vacation with wife Demi Moore in Spain. Along with some questionable photos, Ashton’s phone also contained contact information for several well-known celebrities.

So really, this just goes to show that celebrities aren’t all that different from the rest of us. They, too, lose their cell phones… and get really frustrated by it. If you want to prevent yourself from becoming the next Paris Hilton, we suggest a ZOMM Wireless Leash be your first purchase.

Do you know of any other celebs who need a ZOMM?

Press Release

ZOMM – THE WORLD’S FIRST BLUETOOTH® WIRELESS LEASH FOR MOBILE PHONES UNVEILED AT CES, JANUARY 5, 2010

 
TULSA, Okla. (Jan. 4, 2010) – With billions of mobile phones being used worldwide, thousands of people walk away and accidentally leave their phone behind on a daily basis. ZOMM has created the solution.
 

ZOMM, a wireless leash for any Bluetooth-enabled phone, will sound an alarm if you walk away from your mobile phone, notifying you to turn around. The award-winning device also features call notification with speakerphone, a panic alarm and a feature that allows you to call emergency assistance from anywhere in the world with just one press of a button.

“Mobile phones are packed full of personal information and confidential business communication, so losing one is a nightmare for most people,” said Henry Penix, co-founder of ZOMM. “My wife originally thought of ZOMM to prevent our family from leaving our phones at restaurants or coffee shops. With the added features of call notification and personal security, it became a “must-have” companion for every mobile phone we own.”

ZOMM is smaller than a normal electronic car key and easily attaches to a key ring. It fits comfortably in your pocket or purse and can even attach to a piece of clothing or workout gear. Similar in diameter to a poker chip, ZOMM features a single button for ease of use, LED lights for visual notifications, a microphone for two-way communications and a speaker for audible alerts including full speakerphone functionality.
 

As a wireless leash to your mobile phone, ZOMM sends an alert if you ever accidentally leave your mobile phone behind. With call notification, ZOMM will vibrate, flash lights and provide a sound alert for incoming calls when your mobile phone is out of sight; in a purse, gym bag or in a noisy environment. To answer a call just press a button and ZOMM is a fully functioning speakerphone. To send to voice mail, just press the multifunction button twice.
 

As a personal security device, ZOMM will sound a panic alarm and/or call for emergency assistance from anywhere in the world with just one press of a button. With its speakerphone capabilities, you can speak to emergency personnel without ever touching your mobile phone.
 

ZOMM is a device that not only keeps your mobile phone secure, but also helps keep you and your family safe,” said Laurie Penix, ZOMM’s co-founder. “With two kids in college and a senior in high school, I feel better knowing they have a panic alarm that sounds an ear piercing alert to fend off a would-be attacker, AND calls emergency assistance if they choose.”

Award Winning
ZOMM is taking the consumer electronic industry by storm, having won the 2010 International CES “The Best of Innovations” Award. The competition honors outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics products from around the world. Entrants are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press. Past award winners include; Samsung, Nokia, Panasonic and many other world brands and household names.
 
 
Availability
ZOMM will be available for retail in the second quarter of 2010, in both black and white color options. It uses a lithium-ion battery with a single charge lasting approximately three days. ZOMM also comes with a standard micro USB wall charger, a micro USB charger that connects with any computer (for updates and activation) and optional clips for ease of use.

About ZOMM
ZOMM is the world’s first Bluetooth wireless leash for mobile phones, with call notification and personal security. It is the brainchild of Laurie Penix, a mother of three, who kept hearing her kids and friends complain about their lost mobile phones. Together with her husband, Henry, they created ZOMM. And, for added safety for her and her family, the panic alarm and the ability to call emergency assistance from anywhere in the world was an added bonus.

  • ZOMM Loves Female Innovators

    As many know, ZOMM was invented by Laurie Penix, the mom of the Penix family. Laurie recalls being on the treadmill, watching Oprah, when a phone call from a girlfriend inspired her to look further into the idea of a wireless leash. Inspired by Laurie’s innovation, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find some of the other top mompreneurs to share with – and hopefully inspire – everyone....
