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!

Pumpkin Carving Fun
For a fun family activity last night we thought it would be fun to do some pumpkin carving. It was an amusing evening that our two boys thoroughly enjoyed.As soon as I left work, I picked up the boys and we drove down to a local outdoor produce stand that always seems to have a great selection of pumpkins, all in different shapes and sizes, each one seemed to have their own personality. I think Josh and Jake changed their minds on which pumpkin they each wanted about eight times. Originally Josh was really set on a small pumpkin just a little bit larger than my fist, (I dont think I have the patience to carve a pumpkin that small), so I had to use my best diplomatic efforts to convince him to choose a different pumpkin. He eventually chose another one-- the largest one out there. Jake also chose one that I am sure outweighed ...
