Arc Touch Mouse & LifeCam Studio Webcam RV $160 [CLOSED GIVEAWAY]

BlogHer ‘12 begins Thursday August 2, 2012 and I will be there!

As you know, I have been blogging for the Microsoft LogoWindows Champions program for the past year.

I am super excited to attend the Microsoft Live Webcast on Friday August 3rd at 12pm EST and you should be, too! Why is that, you ask? Because one Style & Trends with Microsoft at home participant is going to win a Samsung Slate! I’m hoping it will be one of OurKidsMom’s readers!!!


In the meantime… I’ve got some goodies to give away that will make your own computer experience a little sweeter.

Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse

The Arc Touch Mouse

With its innovative design and easy elegance, the stylish Arc Touch Mouse is a perfect fit for your lifestyle. It curves for comfort when in use, and packs flat when you’re on the go, taking up virtually no room in your bag. This mobile mouse also features touch scrolling—simply flick to zip down the page and then tap to stay at your destination.

  • Built with Microsoft BlueTrack Technology, which lets you work on virtually any surface—rough, glossy, or soft
  • Stowable nano transceiver provides wireless freedom and can stay plugged in when you’re on the go
  • 2.4 GHz wireless delivers reliable, interference-free performance with up to a 30-foot range


The LifeCam Studio web cam…

LifeCam Studio WebcamWhen friends and family can’t attend those important life moments in person, LifeCam Studio gives you the closest thing to being there.
Whether the sun is streaming in the window or you’re lit only by the light from your computer monitor, you’ll get great resolution and color. TrueColor Technology adjusts to virtually any lighting conditions and helps keep the most important part of your video call—your face—properly exposed. You don’t have to focus, either, because the LifeCam studio will automatically do it for you.
Forget the hassle of picking up and moving your laptop around to get the right view—this webcam can pivot 360 degrees, so you can easily point the camera anywhere. And the built-in tripod thread lets you set up your camera on a tripod* so you can get out from behind your monitor and record long video captures from different angles. The ultra-wideband microphone captures sound from all over the room, not just in front of the camera.

  • Full 1080p HD sensor for superior sharpness and image quality**
  • High-precision, wide-angle glass element lens for advanced optics
  • ClearFrame Technology for smooth, detailed video
  • Tripod thread lets consumers position the LifeCam at any angle to get the best position for long video captures*
  • No need to adjust the focus—LifeCam Studio does it for you at any distance, from four inches to infinity
  • TrueColor Technology automatically delivers bright and colorful video in virtually all lighting conditions
  • High-fidelity microphone for more natural, detailed audio
  • Works with Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo!, AOL Instant Messenger, and Skype†


You can purchase the Arc Touch Mouse and the LifeCam Studio at the Microsoft Store online


ONE OurKidsMom reader is going to win an Arc Touch Mouse & LifeCam Studio web cam RV $160!
