    February 15, 2010 - Leave a Comment

    Wi-Ex, the leading provider of consumer mobile signal boosters for the home and office, showcased its zBoost European product line today at Mobile World Congress.  On display in booth 2J04 at Mobile World Congress and at MobileFocus Global at Avenida Palace Hotel, the zBoost line of products increases the mobile signal indoors and eliminates dropped calls which allows consumers to take full advantage of voice, data and Internet services on their iPhone, Blackberry, smartphone and other mobile phones and data devices including 3G high-speed data and video, instant messaging, pictures and more at home and in the office. 

     Recent industry statistics predict that worldwide smartphone sales will surpass worldwide PC sales by the end of 2011. In addition, according to Gartner more than one billion devices worldwide will be connected to the web in 2010. 

    “The surge in smartphones combined with the increase in use of mobile devices for accessing the Internet and other data functions has made the mobile life a reality,” said Lloyd R. Meese, CEO of Wi-Ex.  “Consumers are no longer reliant on their PCs for Internet access, however with the freedom of the mobile lifestyle comes the frustration of poor in-door mobile signals.  We are working with top dealers and distributors across Europe to provide the zBoost solution to consumers and help provide a consumer-based solution to those consumers frustrated by poor in-door mobile signals.”

    Designed for consumers and network operators, the zBoost-ONETM UMTS 3G signal booster consists of one base unit with no external aerials and extends 3G Voice and Data Zones™ for single or multiple users in homes or offices using UMTS/HSPA (2100MHz). The zBoost for Home and Office, a dual band unit, works with all phones on the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequencies and allows consumers outside of the US to experience increased indoor cell signal coverage – up to 250 sq. meters.

    When I heard someone recently say they had never heard of this site I knew it had to be featured as zBoost Your Life’s Site of the Week. I was introduced to this site in a college health class and it seriously changed my life, nutrition wise.  MyPyramid.gov is provided to us by the United States Department of Agriculture.  This site is a go to source to find out how to create a health plan tailored for your stats as well as find important information about your health and fitness.

    A few unique aspects about this site that I found interesting and useful are:

    • My Pyramid Plan: This allows you to create a tailored plan for your body type while also making sure you get the nutrients you need each day.
    • Interactive Tools: The one I like the best is a menu planner that helps create meals that suite your life while keeping you healthy.
    • Accurate information: This aspect of the site is great because you will know when reading the information it is correct for you and your loved ones.
    • Tips for a healthy you: There is one section called “Steps to a healthier weight” that helps people take the first step toward a healthy weight.

    These bullet points are just the beginning of a huge site of great information and aids for a healthy life. Take a little time and see if your current diet is healthy and if not use the tracker to see what you can do to have a health 2010! To visit the site go to www.mypyramid.gov
