Ever lose your keys? What about your remote? Wallet? Pet? Child? Cigarettes!?

Ever lose your mind because you can’t find something?

Living a busy life can sometimes lead to misplacing some of the most important things in life. I know I find myself searching for car keys and TV remotes all the time. It can be a very frustrating problem but it’s good to always remember, people lose stuff all the time, it’s what you do to try and prevent it that can make a difference.

I’ve seen infomercials on TV many times through the years selling products that you can attach to your most essential items so you can page them I a time of need. Only problem with those is what if you lose the pager button?

Apple and the iTunes store have an amazing app for those moments when you’re phone goes missing: Find My Iphone. After registering your devices with the Find My iPhone app you can track and page your ISO devices anywhere you have internet access. You can even page one ISO device with another.


















A few months before school got out for summer someone super nice broke into my car, took my iPod, popped the truck and swiped my subs. Somehow I had left my car open and I guess I had it coming bumping around the neighborhood. It’s always the worst feeling after something nice gets stolen from you and you can’t do anything about it. So for a while now I’ve been jamming in the car bass-less, until now!

Last week I picked up a new Polk Audio subwoofer from Best Buy. I was real impatient but I managed to shop around all the local pawn shops in Saint Paul, every place I went had the same two 10 inch Kickers, a lot like the two 12s I used to have but we can’t go backwards now, and finally I ended up back at Best Buy where I started. I had my buddy Jon who works at Best Buy purchase them for me with his store discount and saved a ton of money. Best Buy always has real good car audio deals for employees. So thanks to Jon and Best Buy for hooking my car up with some extra bass!

I recently got an iPhone for my graduation from college and I just got it up and running and I couldn’t be more happy. I have always been a huge supporter of apple products my entire life. My first iPod was literally attached to my hip twenty-four hours a day, something my good friend Andy will never let me live down. I’ve been through more than a dozen iPods now and am currently typing this on my iPad; there is just something so sexy about owning a Mac product. I love it.

The sexy coat of glass this new iPhone sports worries me a little though so like any geek with a new gadget I started browsing for accessories. Amazon is always my favorite place to start; I even like to jump on Amazon before I go shopping at the mall now. You get a good sense of what is out there quick and about how much you’re going to end up forking over.

So I search for a few minutes and found cases of all shapes and sizes (well mostly iPhone shaped but you know what I mean). I’ve many of my friends shatter screens and back plates over the last couple years so I knew I had to have a case, but the phones design is so sleek I’d hate to hide it. I knew I couldn’t get a giant otter box even though it would give the best protection; they’re just too bulky and I couldn’t see myself pulling a brick in and out of my pocket. Nothing rubbery or glittery again for the pocket reason. I needed something that would represent me. Finally I found the Zagg leather skins and more importantly the NBA leather series. What’s better than a phone that looks like a basketball?
