Belkin Home Office 375VA UPS
We all are in problems when the power go’s down. Lucky for me I normally work on a laptop so my battery will take over before my machine dies.

But there are things around me that still need some fresh power while I am working. For instance my external hard disk that I use to make my backups on still needs power to work.

And that is why this UPS from Belkin will be the saver of your day when power go’s down. OK maybe you can’t keep working but at least it gives you enough time to save what you are doing.

Go check out the Belkin Home Office 375VA UPS and enjoy the next power outage!

iPhone broke :(

author Posted by: George on date Sep 24th, 2009 | filed Filed under: iPhone / iPod Touch

Yesterday my iPhone 3G started to have fun on it’s own. I got a text message and tried to read it but it just made screen shots every time I pressed the home button another screenshot.

And as most of us know you make a screen shot by holding the power button and pressing the home key. So guess what happened to my iPhone 3G, yes the power button got stuck. I noticed for a couple of months now that the buttons was a bit crooked but didn’t think to much of it. After a while I got the button unstuck but I need my phone so I decided to go visit the Apple store.

To see a genius you need to have an appointment but there is a standby list that you can be put on but you can’t leave the store and you don’t know how long you have to wait.

After just over 30 minutes and my name was called. The gentleman that helped me was very helpfull after a couple of minutes he decided to swap my phone.

They had the phone in stock and he did the sim card transfer and of I went. This of course now left me with and empty iPhone with not even a contact in it. And the SMS I got in the morning was gone to so. Of to home where I plugged my it in to itunes and was asked if I would like to restore or setup a new iphone I tried the restore but that did not work because the firmware of the new iPhone 3G was older then the backup. So first I needed to do the update. I did and then I wanted to get my phone restored but how do you do that?

I checked all the menu’s but didn’t find anything and then after a while I found it just click right on you iphone icon in Itunes and there it is 🙂

It takes a long time to get your backup restored but I even got a phone call in the middle so that was nice that that still works.

So now I am happy with my new phone thanks for the great service of Apple. I was supriced that they didn’t send me back to the store where I bought the phone. Next time my phone breaks (if ever) i will be at the Apple store 🙂

Pocketpack for iPhone Preview

author Posted by: George on date Sep 17th, 2009 | filed Filed under: iPhone / iPod Touch

We all know the feeling of to much stuff to carry around. I as a guy don’t want to take a bag and that means that my pants pockets seem to get full once in a while.

But today I found Pocketpack that could help me creating more space in my crowded pockets.

Pocketpack is a case for an iPhone 3G / 3Gs but it will not only protect your phone it will add some extra features. First of all it has a credit card pocket witch offers room for 2 or 3 cards but you can also use it to store some money or maybe your business cards and secondly it offers a LED light.

For me the card storage is the feature that makes me want to have one. Now I have my cards in one pocket and my phone in the other. It would be so handy not to have to search for my cards and not to have to worry that I damage them to much by keeping them loose in my pocket. Pocketpack will deal with that a quick storage for my all so important Credit cards.

After reading a little bit more I found out that the build in LED is extra bright and that makes it handy when you loose your keys or just to look for the lock at the front door when it is dark. But apperently it is even bright enough to help you with you photography. We all know that low light pictures is not the strong point of you iPhone but with a little help of Pocketpack it could be a thing from the past.

The Pocketpack is designed by someone who really thought about this. For instance not like most cases the pocketpack will fit in the Apple dock so that you can charge it, why is this so difficult for most case manufacturers? Of course I don’t expect it to fit in my Podium stand but I don’t expect that. The case will protect your iPhone 3G/s when you are on the go and it even comes with a screen protector so you don’t really have to worry about anything.

Unfortunately for us the Pocketpack is not yet for sale but it will be availible before christmas so that we all can have one under the Christmas tree. And the friendly people from Pocketpack are realy interested in what you think of the product and ask you to tell them what you think. So go visit the Pocketpack website and let them know.

Let me list a couple of the great features you can find at the Pocketpack website:

  • carries currency, stationery or 2-3 cards
  • white LED flashlight activated by touch sensitive switch
  • easy access for battery replacement
  • durable polycarbonate iPhone 3G and 3Gs protection
  • single piece, snap-on jacket with 1mm sidewalls
  • screen protection kit
  • access to all ports and controls
  • fully dockable without removing case

I guess like me you are impressed with this great looking product and want to have one.

So let me know what you think about this cool product and don’t forget to send the Pocketpack people some feedback to.
