iPhone Cases, Basketball Hoops, and Video Reviews

My husband and I made the big leap a about a month ago.  We bought iPhones.  I have to say, as reserved as I was about making a jump to such a trendy gadget of which I thought I wouldn’t really need, I LOVE it!  It is soooo user friendly and the voice control feature is astonishing.  It is so cool to do a Google search just by talking to your phone, then simply tap the phone number Google pulls up to call the place you were trying to find... or tap the Google map to get GPS directions!  Amazing.

But, of course, we couldn’t just simply purchase iPhones and be done.  Oh, no.  Naturally, we had to find snazzy cases, too.  After running around to more than five different stores, I narrowed my choice down to the Speck Candy Shell and the iFrogz Luxe.  I loved the fun two-tone colors and unmatched durability of the Candy Shell, yet the iFrogz felt great in the hand and had a sliding bottom piece for easy docking. 

I came home and showed my husband my narrowed-down choices online.  (Ummm, just so you know, they are both available much cheaper online than in stores.)  But, still, which one to pick?  Well, when I did my Google search for iPhone case reviews, one of the first sites that popped up was actually a video review.  I was planning on reading some user reviews, but it never even dawned on me there might be video reviews for a phone case!  Turns out there are dozens of in-depth video reviews available for almost every style and brand of iPhone case made.  These reviews were super helpful!  Nothing fancy or professional about them, but lots of specifics and answers to details I never would have thought about, plus up-close product shots from all angles. 

Anyway, it got me thinking...there must be video reviews about almost every kind of product if there are video reviews for phone cases!  Hmmm, I wonder if there are any video reviews of Lifetime products?  (Well, obviously, I knew there were at least a few because I have done a couple myself for Lifetime wheelbarrows, Lifetime yard carts, and Lifetime plastic sheds...although not nearly as in-depth and detailed as the reviews I found for phone cases.)  Anyway, sure enough, a quick Google Video search for "Lifetime basketball hoop reviews", pulled up several video reviews, most of them on expotv.com.  The reviews, or "Videopinions", are unsolicited by Lifetime and are from everyday homeowners who own Lifetime basketball hoops. There are also numerous written reviews about Lifetime basketball hoops on various sites, as well.  Here are just a few of the Lifetime basketball hoop video reviews I found that may be of help to you:

 

So, my point with all of this:  if you're making an investment in a product - an iPhone case, a Lifetime product, or any product - be sure to take advantage of today's wonderful technology.  Take the time to do a quick search online to help you make a wise and educated decision.  Manufacturer's websites can provide you with all of the specs and benefits of a product.  Google Video, YouTube, and Expotv are all great sources for customer video reviews.  And, most all online stores usually have written customer reviews for each product that are extremely insightful, too.

Oh, yea. I forgot to tell you... we ended up buying the iFrogz Luxe cases and so far they are great!

On the Drive Home
After writing my last post about my first encounter with a Lifetime Basketball System, I started thinking about how many other people probably had a similar experience as mine. In fact, on my drive home from work last week, I decided to count how many basketball systems there were, and how many of them were from Lifetime. In my short 10 miles from work to home, I counted 60 basketball hoops along my path, and out of those, close to 80% of them were made by Lifetime! So Im guessing that many have had an experience similar to mine. If you do, Id love to hear about it! In fact, while looking for the Jordan vs. Bird commercial a couple of weeks ago, I ran across video of some guys creating some pretty cool memories of their own on a Lifetime System. Check them out here: Backyard Basketball

Is Your Folding Table Safe?
As consumers, we have become accustomed to looking for safety features when making important purchase decisions, especially when it comes to products like vehicles, power tools, and baby items. But, did you know you should also look for safety features when buying a folding table, too? In my past few blog posts, I've been diving into various topics that help you make more educated folding table purchases. Unfortunately, probably the most overlooked features consumers consider when buying a folding table are safety features. The last thing you need is for your table to collapse while you are using it! So, what should you look for to ensure you are purchasing a safe table? A secure locking mechanism for the table legs. Now, the tricky part is that locking mechanisms will vary depending on the leg style. For rectangular banque...
