Everybody has a smartphone of some kind now. While people might go to digital war (keyboard warriors, and all that) about whether Apple, Samsung, Huawei, or any other brand is superior to the others, one thing we can all agree on is that our phones have become a sort of safety blanket when we find ourselves alone in public.

The question is, why though? What did we do while waiting in public or sitting on the bus or even just relaxing at home before we had our smartphones? It seems like a long, long time ago that anyone didn’t whip their phone out at the first sign of boredom, but is this a good thing or a bad thing?

GOOD!

If you are someone who hates strangers striking up conversation with you, then having your phone is a great way of signalling that you are not to be spoken to. This doesn’t always work, of course, but it certainly gives you a bit of a buffer when in public.

Furthermore, those of us with busy lives (all of us, then) might want to take this time alone in public or even at home by catching up on anything you’ve missed during the day. Whether you want to check the group chat or scroll Facebook or keep informed on what’s been going on in the world. You might even need to update your blog or answer some work emails, getting this time to yourself and fixating on your screen will help you know what’s going on all over the world.

BAD!

But why would you want to be on your phone when you have the whole world in front of you? If this is something you have heard before, you understand that moment of clarity when you think ‘Oh yeah.’

Being on your phone constantly does seem just a bit too antisocial, especially when surrounded by friends and family. Furthermore, playing games or browsing absently can quickly turn minutes into hours, and you run the risk of missing your bus or train or perhaps more importantly, life itself.

A BIT OF BOTH?

There are positives and negatives associated with being on your phone when you feel like you have nothing to do. For some, it might be that you want to complete the new Final Fantasy for mobile, which can be downloaded here: finalfantasyxvapp.com/company-info. However, picking the right time and place is most essential to not looking rude or ignorant.

These messages you get sent are not going to go away anytime soon. If you can give yourself a quick update here and there, but not get sucked into the screen, then you will start finding yourself with less and less dependence on your phone when in uncomfortable situations. Who knows, you might just see something you won’t forget.

JUST PASSING TIME

Perhaps we do rely too much on our smartphones as a safety blanket in some situations, but this is okay. It only becomes a problem when you start gripping to this blanket even when you are around people you love and trust and like. While you don’t need to bin your phone now, consider if you need to check this email or message right now. You’d be surprised what you miss in the real world when you’re too busy worrying about what you will miss online.

Unfortunately, electronic devices break easily. For many who have owned a cell phone, laptop, or other mobile device, the reality of this often hits them full-on in the face. A simple slip, drop, or water spill can mean disaster for these little gadgets. Fortunately, protection for these gadgets has improved over the years. In fact, Samsung cases are among some of the best shock-absorbing protective covers available.

Young Children Disasters

One woman believed that she was a careful person. She took good care of her belongings and prided herself in her ability to keep things safe and protected. Then, she became a mother. It seemed that no matter where she put things, her young children would always seem to find them. One particular toddler was skilled at getting through barriers. For instance, he learned at an early age how to unbuckle his car seat’s safety belts. He figured out how to open cabinet latches, doorknob covers, push down gates, and to break through some Plexiglas that was protecting the DVD player and Xbox from sticky, little fingers.
Suddenly, this mother found herself going through cell phones faster. Between slobber absorption, cemented gobs of gunk, and being flung across the room at high speeds, her little electronic devices did not stand a chance. Her laptop was even knocked over, and though it did not have far to fall, once it hit the hardwood floor, the display screen was shot and had to be replaced.
Inevitably, getting protective covers became a necessity for her in order to save money. She was very glad to see her new Galaxy phone being cushioned as it was, once again, flung across the room. Additionally, she noticed that her screen protector was getting scratched and she realized how much it was protecting her actual screen from being scratched.

Several Styles

Samsung cases for cell phones come in many different colors and styles. In fact, some come with a stand that let a person set the screen up. Since most phones are black, having a splash of color adds variety, style, and personality to a phone. Some covers actually double as wallets or purses, keeping everything that always must stay handy conveniently nearby.

With the ever-growing popularity of cell phones, you have probably also noticed the appearance of many different phone accessories. The many different kinds of phone accessories out there can be used to improve your cell phone in different ways. One type of cell phone accessory that is very popular and common is a protective case. Cell phone cases are made to fit specific types of phones. These custom cases can offer a few benefits to the use of your cell phone. If you are looking at Samsung cases for your cell phone, here are some of the benefits that they have to offer you.

Keeping Your Phone Protected

Protective phone cases are perfect for preventing damage to your cell phone. Because most people take their cell phones with them everywhere they go, cell phone damage is very common. Carrying your phone in your pocket or purse makes it vulnerable to getting scratched, smashed, or broken. Having to pay for a new phone every time yours gets damaged can be extremely expensive and frustrating. Having a cover on your phone can save you from having to continually pay for replacement phones because they protect your phone from these kinds of damage. Additionally, phone cases keep your phone looking new because they prevent scratches to your phone. In these ways, phone cases are great for prolonging the life of your phone, saving you a lot of time and lots of headaches in the long run.

Making Your Phone Unique

In addition to preventing damage to your phone, protective cases also allow you to customize your phone. If you have a Samsung phone, you have probably seen a lot of people walking around with the exact same phone as you. When you want to individualize your phone and make it unique from the other phones of the same model, you can use a cell phone case. Samsung cases allow you to pick a unique design that reflects your own style so that you can customize and distinguish your phone while you are protecting it from harm. In this way, cases help you to be more satisfied with the appearance of your cell phone, making it uniquely yours.

When you are wearing a helmet, it can be difficult to communicate. Using a phone is almost out of the question, especially when the helmet covers the entire head. However, there are devices that offer great sound and use Bluetooth technology to provide those wearing helmets the opportunity to communicate with each other and others. Devices like those offered at www.uclear-digital.com/us/ make communicating much easier and safer.

No Helmet

There are a lot of reasons that people cite for not wearing a helmet:

  1. It will mess up their hair.
  2. It is uncomfortable.
  3. I like the feel of the wind in my hair.
  4. I can’t hear who I am talking to.

The reasons go on and on, but there is one reason to wear a helmet that trumps every other reason. If you do not wear a helmet and you get into an accident, you may suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). That type of injury not only messes up your hair, it also makes life very uncomfortable. TBIs can result in paralysis, the inability to walk, talk, or enjoy the wind in your hair. Smart people who want to be able to access and not lose what they have learned know that wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle, bicycle, skateboard, or while skiing or snowboarding is the smart thing to do.

Finding Solutions

That means that you have to overcome your own objections to wearing a helmet. Find the solutions that allow you to continue to enjoy the activity while also protecting your brain and head. If communication is a problem, then you need to look at websites like www.uclear-digital.com/us/ to see if they have a device that can solve your problems and allow you to wear a helmet. There is no good reason to go without head protection; there are only excuses. If you happen to be one of those people who disdain those who are living on government money and you do not wear a helmet, you may find yourself joining them. Continue to be able to exercise the freedoms that you enjoy by wearing a helmet.

It seems like everyone and their grandmother has an iPhone these days. The fact is, it’s a popular phone, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. It’s also very expensive, which means you have probably looked into iPhone cases to help keep your phone intact for as long as possible. There are several different options you have when it comes to a case for your phone. You can get one that protects it like a force field, one that personalizes it, or one that’s more functional.

Mass Protection

If you’re looking for protection for your phone, there are many more options now than there were even a couple of years ago. You can get a simple screen protector, which can prevent scratches, or you can get a more extreme one that is shatterproof. Dropping your phone at some point is inevitable, so a shatterproof screen protector might be worth considering, since a good drop can render your phone useless. You can also get a rubbery or bulky case that can protect the outside of your phone. These vary in size, texture, price, and protection level, depending on how clumsy you are.

Personal Touch

Another option for a case is to get one that represents you. If you are simple and don’t want to make too much of a statement, then a basic, single-color slide-on case might be a good option for you. If you are into animal prints, they now have cases of varying materials in the pattern you’d want, including zebra and leopard prints. Of course, you can choose sparkly cases or ones with a more masculine touch. Plus, you can find some very good deals on cases that use a personal picture or design of your own.

Functional Cases

Finally, you may want to protect your phone but keep it on hand. There are iPhone cases that function as wallets and pouches. These can hold your credit cards and cash along with your phone. This keeps your phone constantly covered and provides a barrier in case you drop it. Plus, you’ll never forget your phone, or your license, as long as you remember one or the other.

A’s been so busy lately that going to get Miss Fly repaired has been postponed each day and so it seems I’ll be going back to Singapore on Monday without her. I was hoping to get her to the shop last Thursday hoping that they just need to replace the motherboard or the computer memory and then collecting her on Friday in time for my trip but alas that didn’t happen as A needed to help Abah with stuff those two days. Sigh..

Like I say the last time, I’m hoping my prepaid internet access can be used on my mobile then at least I can facebook or twitter.  Wish me luck!

We went to Low Yatt Plaza today to get me speakers for my desktop (been using headphones and it’s causing me to go deaf),  mouse pad and blank cds for Azwaj. A friend also came along because he wanted to get the price lists for laptops and netbooks as he needs to get a replacement for his ailing one. I window shop as well because as you know Miss Fly, my own laptop, is three years old next year and no more warranty for her so got to start budgeting for a new one should she.. ehem ehem.

Prices are really good. There’s a Lenovo unit with all the features that I wanted going for RM1699 and an Asus one that is going for RM1799 though Lenovo looks more value for value since it has bluetooth feature. Anyway, I’m definitely going to surf around for laptop reviews tonight to see what are being said about these models. Don’t want to make the same mistake twice.

Social NetworkOn my wishlist now is a brand new phone. It seems like only yesterday I bought Miss VB but in actual fact, I’ve owned her for two years this July. She’s did get “sick” late last year but after sending her for repair, she’s as good as new. However, now I want to own a phone that has wifi features so I can be online even when I’m not in front of my pc. I’m so envious of people who are able to twitter online, check their FB account and now that this blog has a mobile version, I want to be able to view my blog on my mobile phone too even when I’m not at home!

Now, if I was in living in the States, I could have gone to check out for promo codes at Savings for some Verizon Wireless coupons or even Chegg coupon codes while I’m there, and potentially get discounts on my new phone and get some books in the process.. however, I’m not in the States so I reckon I got to wait for some mobile handphone sales to happen soon before getting one.

By the time that happens though, I may already be broke and that mobile phone could just be a mobile dream for me.. Sigh!!

Yihaaa!! Thanks to my beloved Azwaj for getting my new pc ready for use and though I don’t have a name for her yet, I am leaning towards Miss Shiny.. simple coz she is all back and Shiny.. Lol!!… I still have not gone to send Miss Fly back to the service center because A’s been sick and I’ve not been too well either and my trip back home is coming soon and Hari Raya is coming, and there is food shopping to do.. etc etc.

It sure feels good to see my own files again. The familiarity of my own browser and the bookmarks sure gets me back in the mood to work again. I even dropped 300 cards for LJL these past two days (Hurray for me!). When Miss Fly was down, I was using a very old pc and the withdrawal symptoms was horrendous. This must be how people at the drug rehab feels when they are trying to stop the habit. Lucky for me, I had all my favorite show to keep me company and help me forget the pain of not being online. (sounding like an internet junkie for sure).. but I’m back in business!

So here she is.. introducing Miss Shiny!


The Black and Shiny CPU Tower


The CPU has a display that shows the CPU temperature and time!


Check out my black and Shiny 20″ LCD Flat Screen Monitor

I FEEL GOOD despite the coughing that is.. ahem ahem!

Very productive day today.

Though A still wasn’t feeling well, we still needed to go to Low Yatt to send a client’s laptop for repair. Then of course, there is the matter of me needing a new desktop to replace Miss Fly which, despite having been sent for repairs early last week, is still down.

So, YES, I got me a new desktop with a 20″ LCD monitor to match. A is setting it up with all the necessary software I would need for my work and hopefully it would get done soon though the poor dear is still sniffling away and I feel guilty for asking him to work. No pictures for now but once it is up and running and all nicely set up at my workstation, they’ll be plenty of pictures. LOL!

Hmm.. any suggestion for a name for my new and shiny desktop?

Oh by the way, I also got my cheque today from Advertlets.. so double yeay!!

For the past week now, I have a makeshift office space. When Miss Fly was at the shop, A had set up for me an old machine that is VERY slow and not totally equipped with the software that I was used to using. So there was no Twitter plugin, no MS Outlook and no Photoshop. So I was lazy to do anything. Besides this makeshift office space had me sitting on the floor with a cushion on my butt. It would suffice at the point as it let me watch my dvd marathon. After all I don’t need to type anything while watching dvd.

But now that it is coming to the second week and Miss Fly is no where near ok, I got TF installed along with some software that I liked. I even moved around my furniture (thank God for desk with wheels) so that I no longer needed to sit on the floor (my butt and back hurt from no support). I need to get back to work as not only am I getting frustrated, so are my clients!
bracelet
HP is so gonna get a screaming from me tomorrow when I resend Miss Fly in and I am so gonna get a new desktop myself. What before would have been a luxury, now it has become a necessity! I was gonna buy a lovely Contemporary Jewelry which is a bracelet but oh well… next time!

It sure feels like forever since I visited my own blogs. Miss Fly, my laptop is still in the shop and last I heard on Thursday, they have ordered the parts needed to replace the defective one and that she would only be back on Monday. I received a missed call alert late Friday at 7pm and when I call back, the HP office was already closed. I’m really hoping that the call was to let me know I could collect her on Monday and not because of some delay in the parts replacement.

If I had known it was going to take them this long to do the repairs, I would have packed away my Samsonite luggage bag and gone back to Singapore for a short mommy visit!

I really hope I get Miss Fly on Monday.. I’m starting to go crazy..heheh

Good news! I got my handphone repaired. According to the shop, what happened to Miss VB (yeah I named my phone), is a very common problem with this model, Sony Ericsson K850i. It is something to do with camera shutter switch. So what they did was to bypass it and everything is ok again.. ok again after RM180 poorer that is :(

worriedThen, this morning Miss Fly, my laptop, suddenly lost power and switched off by itself! When I rebooted her, she went on to do scan disk. I let it run and after she had finished, she restarted but again started to run the scan disk for the second time. After the third reboot and again attempting to run scan disk, I hit canceled and it went on to load windows..

Sigh.. I wonder what would be next? If this goes on, I need to get me insurance by the bulk probably from wholesaleinsurance.net.. lol!

Nokia N97So I was over at Giant earlier today and as A was at the counters queuing to pay, I wondered off to a Nokia Sales Kiosk that was just underneath the escalator. I’m not really looking to buy a new phone but I do want to keep my options open in case, Miss VB is beyond repair or if it would cost me a bomb to repair her, then I might as well get a new phone right?

My eyes scanned through all the range of phones the kiosk had and it landed on (whaddaya know!), the most attractive of them all, the N97! OMG! I totally fell in love with it. It has this big screen and it was in black and it was looking all sleek and sexy. The price? A whopping RM2397!

I guess I will keep looking eh.. lol!

OMG!! Miss VB, my handphone just died on me today. The symptoms started a few days when the camera shutter didn’t close after taking pictures but I thought it’s ok.. it’s just the camera. Then at around 8pm today, the keypad lights all lit up, the camera lens light went on as well and the phone went dead. I tried to switch off the phone to no avail. The only way it can be switched off is by removing the camera.

I went to support site over at Sony Ericsson and did as what they suggested which was remove the batteries, clean all connectors, remove the memory card and still no luck. The only thing to do is send it to the nearest repair shop and hope that it is just the battery.

Miss VB is only 1year and 4months!! Boo Hoo

For the past month, Miss Fly has been behaving very strangely. I thought initially it was her memory card but then I noticed each time I reboot she does a shutdown instead. I’m suspecting it’s her motherboard.

Lucky for me, I extended her warranty for another year the last time she was being serviced so after the dust settled from my move and I have bought my new desktop pc, I will be sending her to the service center to get her checked out. In the meantime, I am backing up my data both via online backup and on dvd. With my online business I can’t afford to lose any data!

One of the other reason why I’m so looking forward to moving is because that would be when I would get my new desktop! Yeay!

Yeap.. Azwaj said we can only get it once we move and that makes perfect sense to me and that is why I’m not complaining.. and since I still have Miss Fly.. I’m still contented.

So in the meantime, I am looking around for best buy at buy.com for suggestions and tips on the latest deals around. Join me?

Azwaj brought home a client’s laptop today to be reformatted and I can’t help noticing how small it was!

Seriously it was the cutest thing I’ve seen. I mean I saw this kind of “small” laptop before at Low Yatt but to actually hold it in my hands.. it was like “wow”. It was so light and so small that it immediately prompted me to look for more of it’s kind online and guess what… It is actually called netbooks and not laptop or notebook. Well I guess one more terminology for us all today eh?!

I love blogging and what’s better than just blogging? How about blogging with style? How about blogging with the new HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition. I know my birthday had just passed BUT there’s that wedding anniversary that is still approaching and I’ve set my eyes on this baby.

Affectionately known as the “digital clutch”, this dream gadget is not only pleasing to the eyes, appeal to the senses (so I can write more inspiring post), it is also just the right size for a “constant” traveler like me. You know one moment I’m in Singapore, the next I’m in Ipoh ;) – a real “jet-setter”. Don’t let the size fooled you though, this power puncher packs in a 10.1 inch BrightView Infinity widescreen display (1,024 x 576 resolution) with flush glass and LED backlight. It also has built-in webcam and microphone and is powered by Intel® Atom N270 1.6-gigahertz (GHz) processors and runs on Windows XP Home. Told you not to be fooled by the size.

I think retailing at USD799, this baby is a sure hit, don’t you think? Besides it’s RED – my favorite colour!
