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!

Have you started composting?
For most of us in the Lifetime family, winter is on its way out. What does that mean? Time to start cooking compost! For those who dont know, Lifetime Products makes a Composter! (You can read all about it in my previous post.) The question was asked How do I separate my compost from my non-composted organic matter? Good question! First would be getting another composter. One composter would be for actually making compost in while the other would be for filling up. When youre done making compost in one, you can empty it and start using it as your filler and the other as your composter. Of course, this means buying two of our composters, which we wouldnt mind at all. ;) The second idea is what I do with my single Lifetime Composter at my house. I cant fill the thing - as soon as it gets full, the composting proces...
A Face for Radio
This past Sunday afternoon I was able to skip out of church a little early to do a radio interview with our friends at 96.5 FM in Florida. Ken and Jared, father and son, do a weekly home improvement show called "In the House" where they invite experts in various categories to come talk about products to improve your home. As part of this interview, they are giving away a Lifetime 7'x7' Storage Shed model 60042. This was the third show of this type that I have done since Ive been here at Lifetime. I keep a tally of the number of times I say um or like or some other filler word. This time I only counted six which was a big improvement. I have to admit it is fun talking about something I am so passionate about. I am very content working out in the garden, and with the great weather weve been having here in Utah have had a lot o...
