    My Thoughts

    Cute, funky and pretty! That’s how I will describe this cellphone case. It is available in different color combinations, but I got the pretty yellow and blue case. My niece loves it and it fits her phone like a glove. The case comes with a screen protector and was packed really nicely. It is soft and smooth to the touch and my niece loves that she can access all buttons, controls and ports without problems.

    Overall, she loved the case and even her friends love it, too. The case is funky and stylish, this would make a great gift for girls who love all things cute.

    You can purchase the iPhone 6 Case through the Phengpro website and on Amazon. It is fairly priced at $21.99.

    Why Go for a GoPro?

    Posted on March 17, 2015 @ 1:50 am

    With its high-quality action cameras, GoPro boasts the most versatile cameras in the world. But which model is right for you? Whether you are looking into video camera rental or buying your own camera, there are several GoPro models to choose from.

    Naturally, each model shares many of the same qualities, such as the ability to be mounted on a variety of surfaces, and they are all waterproof up to 40 meters. However, the newer the model, the more video footage it can take, and the more photos it can store. With both photo and video abilities, the GoPro cameras can be worn or mounted, even in vehicles or eyeglasses. They can also be set to automatic or be remotely controlled.

    The GoPro HERO is the most basic model, and the simplest for anyone to use. With the ability to take 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and its waterproof housing, it can be mounted on a surfboard or skateboard for cool angles on a video. The Burst Photo quality can capture 5 frames per second, allows one to capture fast-action sequences. It is also a small and lightweight camera, weighing less than 4 ounces. Anyone who feels like they miss a lot of great photo opportunities can use the camera’s Quick Capture mode, which allows the user to press just one button to start recording a video, and then press and hold the same button to capture photos.

    The GoPro HERO 3 comes with new features, such as 1080p30 video, the ability to capture 5MP single photos, Time Lapse photos or Burst photos at 3 frames per second, and built-in Wi-Fi. With the built-in Wi-Fi feature, the user can not only control the camera remotely, but also preview, play back and share photos with the GoPro app. That may not seem practical, but it can be useful in a variety of situations, such as when the camera is taking great footage from on top of a moving car or someone else’s bike.

    The GoPro HERO 3+ has many of the same features as the HERO 3, but better photo and video quality. With 1080p60 video and 10MP photos up to 10 frames per second, this camera is ideal for people who like the built-in Wi-Fi and multiple photo options but want even better quality photos and videos. It also has high-performance audio, and can film great in dimly lit environments.

    The GoPro Hero 4 is the newest GoPro model, and also the most advanced. With 4K30 and 2.7K50 video and high frame rate 1080p120 video, the HERO 4 takes the best quality photos and videos of any GoPro Camera yet. There are already two different HERO 4 cameras: HERO 4 Black and HERO 4 Silver, and the difference is not simply in color of the camera. The HERO 4 Black has the best quality images yet. With a processor that is twice as powerful, this camera also takes photos twice as fast. 12MP photos at speeds up to 30 fps, and especially 2.7K50 and 1080p120 video, makes this model stand out from the rest. Though all of the GoPro cameras take professional-quality photos, the photos taken by the HERO 4 Black are of the highest resolution and the best quality. The HERO 4 Silver is the first and only GoPro camera to have a built-in touch display for convenience and for framing the perfect shot. And the slow-motion playback on this camera would be a great tool for any videographer. It takes 12MP photos at speeds up to 30 fps, and 1080p60 and 720p120 video. Like its different-colored counterpart, it also has the built-in Wi-Fi that the HERO 3 and HERO 3+ also come with.  With an enhanced sensor, the HERO 4 Silver produces sharper and more lifelike photos than any of the previous models.

    Articles Written by Industry Experts Really Do Matter

    Posted on March 6, 2015 @ 5:26 pm

    The internet is full of news articles. These articles can be informative or opinionated, but some just carry a bit more weight than others. The specifics of the post need to be evaluated by the reader, because sometimes a writer has credentials that are all but impeccable, which means their opinion really does matter. Someone that has spent decades in a field and demonstrated success in a certain industry clearly knows what they are talking about. Of course, the opposite is often true as well. Before deciding on what articles to take to heart, readers need to check out the author, the subject material, and draw their own conclusions from the post.

    Check Out the Author

    Robert Rosenkranz is CEO of Delphi Financial Group, which is an insurance holding company with more than $14 billion in assets and he has spent decades in the finance field. Therefore, when he writes about a topic to call attention to it, he really does know what he is talking about. Just as an article from a celebrity about acting would carry some serious weight, the pedigree of the author makes a huge difference in the credibility of the post. Since most websites provide an author bio near the top or bottom of the article, readers do not really have a tough time figuring out if the writer is someone trapped in a dark room or an expert on the material being presented.
    The Subject Material

    If Bill Gates was writing about movies, most people would not take much notice. However, if he was writing about the state of the technology industry, just about everyone imaginable would probably check out what he had to say. Expertise in a field is often crucial to giving a valid opinion, and when experts line up to offer an opinion, readers should be informed enough to realize that the opinion or subject being brought up is thoroughly researched and well presented.

    Draw Conclusions

    The hope of any post by an expert is to get people talking. The topic could be a trend or issue that needs a bit of publicity, which is what inspired the author in the first place. Readers make the determination on whether or not to share the post via social media or act on the contents discussed. Experts have a way of moving people to action. Perhaps it is their words or their clout, but either way the reader holds the real power.
    In short, news sites and official blogs often bring topics to light for a specific reason. Guest posts or articles from industry leading experts are designed to strike a nerve. The report could serve to educate the reader or call attention to something that is going on that nobody realizes, but either way, when an author has the credential to back up a story, everyone should realize the importance of the topic.

    Last May, on a whim, I purchased an orange tree.
    Oranges, being one of my favorite fruits,
    seemed like a fun thing to try growing
    and a little nuts if you live in Oklahoma, like we do.

    Hubs’ Shaving Brush Stand

    Posted on @ 5:46 pm

    Don’t you just hate it when your husband keeps forgetting to keep his shaving brush in its proper place? Hubs’ brush used to be everywhere and I used to nag him for it until I discovered a shaving brush stand online. I had doubts at first, but he instantly loved it when I gave it to him. It also fits his wood brush perfectly. The brush is always perched nicely on the stand I have solved the I-can-find-it-everywhere-in-the-bathroom issue.

    This is the front window of Minamoto Kitchoan in San Francisco with an array of Japanese sweets – Wagashi – wrapped in seasonal packaging celebrating the Year of the Sheep. I love the dragon head box and of course the cute drawing of the sheep and the Noh mask.  If you happen to be in San Francisco, stop by the shop on Market Street and explore the beautiful and tasty world of Wagashi.
