New Outdoor Coffee Table Concept Sure to Change the way you spend time outdoors

The pandemic has people spending more time outdoors because of the necessity of social distancing. As the weather turns cooler and more pleasant, the fall is the ideal time to spend outdoors, enjoying friends and fellowship.

“Consumer attention is shifting to improve outdoor spaces to create more comfortable and appealing designs in balconies, gardens and porches, boosting market expansion. Consumers are willing to spend their disposable income, particularly on the design and manufacture of outdoor furniture products to improve aesthetics, expanding the product variety,” according to Global Market Insights.

Outdoor lighting has always been en vogue with those who enjoy sitting outside in the evenings. A new company is taking that concept of outdoor lighting up to the 21st century.

Quasar Outdoor is a new concept in outdoor lighting. Quasar is changing the way people enjoy lighting by adding two components that many find ideal for time outside – wireless capabilty and charging stations.

The Quasar Outdoor lighting system will have an app for both Android and iOS. Users will be able to adjust the color, mood and brightness of the Quasar from their phone, adjusting the long lasting LEDs to match the flow of the evening. Those enjoying the Quasar will also be able to charge their phones wirelessly, removing the need for chargers and battery packs.

The Quasar comes in two models, the Hila and Hollie, as well as a variety of colors to match a variety of outdoor living spaces. Each model comes with a RGBW light strip, 110 volt outlet, two USB chargers and a 20 w wireless charger.

The team behind the Quasar have started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Participants in the campaign will have excellent opportunities for the Quasar as well as other benefits associated with participating in the program.

A one-click solution will make book, movie & music websites more attractive


Many people who search book, music and movie websites for ideas on what to read, watch or listen to next like to check them out at their local library before deciding to buy. Doing this can be a complicated process. Link2Library will find out, without moving from the site being visited, if the item is available at the searcher’s local library.

Link2Library Director and Co-Founder Heidi Z Yao, Ph.D., said the idea for the site came from the fact that when she visited book recommendation sites and found a title that drew her attention she often wanted to have a trial look at it. The process necessary to find out if the title was available at her local library involved several clicks and other steps, and she wondered if it could be possible to access a library website directly from the one she was visiting.

Today Link2Library provides a convenient tool for visitors browsing book, movie and music websites to check whether any item is available at their home library with just one click. Having the Find in Library button on a site makes it more user-friendly. After Find in Library is integrated into a site, Link2Library automatically detects nearby libraries when visitors click the access button. Once the home library is confirmed, a catalog search for the desired item is performed.

In addition to catalog sites such as Amazon, users of sources such as Goodreads can add a Find in Library button to their account. By doing this a direct library check for availability can be made as soon as the review or description is read. As a demonstration, is developed by Link2Library Inc. to show how Find in Library button works after integrating to a website.

More than 10,000 libraries in the USA and Canada have been integrated to Link2 Library, and new libraries are added regularly based upon suggestions from libraries and users of the new site. There is no cost for using Link2Library for non-profit websites. For other websites, after a one month free trial, a subscription fee is based on monthly traffic.

Complete information on what Link2Library does and how to use it can be found at Questions can be emailed through the contact form on the site.

About Link2Library: The mission of Link2Library is to provide a handy tool to book, movie and music websites so that their visitors can check any library item’s availability at home library with one click.
