I started a new tradition this year by taking a family picture on every birthday we celebrate between my husband and I. Let's just say that after four out-takes, the picture I finally settled on is less than any-thing to brag about. It's hard enough to get your dog to look at the camera. Add a birthday hat to the mix and we have a disastrous photo shoot.
That large metal stick you see in the centre of this picture is a camera
extender pole that my sister gave me last Christmas as a novelty gift.
It works pretty well when I try to get a picture of just my husband and I
but doesn't work that great when you try to get your pet in the shot as
well. Thankfully, I'm a much better photographer when I am actually
physically behind the camera. While Bella may be my number one model,
she's not always a willing one.

In the current economic climate, it is becoming increasingly important for businesses to look for ways to save money in any way they can.
A number of global economies are at best stagnant and at worst in
serious danger of failing to recover from the recent financial crisis
sufficiently. Considering this, it is important to save
in both large and small areas of the business. From office furniture to
the number of paperclips you order, everything has to be accounted for.
Below are three of the main areas in which money can be saved in the business world;

Money Saving Tips
Savoo loves all its merchants, so it's a shame we don't get to see all of them more often. But last week the team and I visited eBuyer in East Yorkshire. It's a long way to go from London but it was worth every hour on that train. eBuyer should be a case study on how to run an internet business. The team there are always open to ideas, they understand how people want to shop and they know what they want to buy. They understand online marketing, they understand that consumers want a great deal and, I am pleased to say, are doing really well.
Personally, I am a massive fan of eBuyer
and last week I put my money where my mouth is and bought my wife a
present she has been after for ages to help her with her design work
that she is doing.
If you, for whatever reason, never took the advice we dispensed several months ago about getting Steam, you may have just missed out on one of the best gaming sales of the year. As we noted, Valve, the company behind the Steam platform, is notorious for offering its customers unbeatable discounts almost year round, in addition to providing them with top quality games. However, around the holidays, Valve tends to go overboard with its deals, and this year was no exception.

Technology and Gaming
As we're sure most of you have noted, Google's inexplicable homepage doodle from yesterday consisted of nothing more than a group of balls that jumped around the page upon being hovered over with the mouse cursor. Though nobody has been able to figure out what the purpose of the doodle was, a few theories have manifested themselves. The most prominent of these is that Google is simply celebrating its 12th anniversary in a rather peculiar way. Others suggest that, because HTML5 was used to encode the doodle, it's the company's way of trying to push users to upgrade their browsers to HTML5 compliant ones. Beyond that, there are also rumblings that the new doodle is in preparation for some major announcement soon to be made by the search giant. Here at Savoo, all we know is that the logo doodle makes no sense to us and is there for no real reason. The same way these deals are here for no real reason (Other than to save you money, of course. And the fact that they're vaguely tech related.):

Here at Savoo, we're always on the lookout for the best deals available. Our visitors will often ask us about laptops because let's face it- their relative price makes them a fairly large investment. This means that, before purchasing one, people are interested in knowing the answers to questions such as, "What's the difference between a business and a consumer model?", "Which one is the best?", and perhaps most importantly, "Where can I get the best deal?"
Well as it turns out, Dell have gone a step beyond what other
manufacturers typically offer their customers by introducing this new,
interactive iframe. It allows you to see for yourself all the features
of one of its newest models, the Latitude E6510, and decide for yourself
whether it's for you. Click here to check it out, and also see our thoughts on the Latitude E6510 below:
