Sold Out Everywhere. Not.

The Sphero Star Wars BB-8 was released on Force Friday (9/4/15) and sold out quick! A few days after release, I called everywhere and no one had them but one day on my lunch break, I randomly decided to take a walk and was lucky enough to find two at a Sprint store. More pics and videos to come.

My iPhone 6 has a bump

 

Found a bump by the FCC info and had to get it replaced :(

It’s really small and hard to see in the video but I was worried that bump was result of something not assembled properly inside.

Out with the Old, In with the New

Finally got a pair of new iPhones! It was worth the wait. No lines! I don’t know how these people do it. Going to list the iPhone 5 and 5s on eBay tomorrow. My thoughts, better photos and links to eBay listings to come.

Lost my Fitbit and Fitbit Replaced it!

Yep, that’s right! I lost my Fitbit at the Redwood Regional Park during a hike with my family and Fitbit sent me a new one… for free!

I’ve lost my Fitbit once before but found it using one of the many bluetooth locator apps in the App Store. The bluetooth locator (LightBlue) was showing a strong signal in my son’s room but near the ceiling. I ended up finding it in the attic where I was storing some stuff.
I originally thought it fell off in the car or maybe took it off when we got home, but no signal anywhere at home. After a little investigating, we noticed in a few pictures that I was wearing it at the start of the trail and not wearing it at the end. We came back the next day and walked the trail, but this time with my iPhone in my hand looking like some lost idiot on a trail using his iPhone GPS or a crazy man scanning the trail for treasure. I swear people gave me the dirtiest looks. Anyway, I walked the entire trail but came up empty. The bluetooth on the phone has a pretty wide range. When Nicole and Jude finally caught up with me, it picked up Nicole’s Fitbit from about 40 feet away.

I’m pretty impressed with Fitbit’s customer service! I contacted them via the app, asked if there was special pricing for existing users that have lost their devices. They requested for me to provide some information via email. Within a couple of days, I was informed that a free replacement was being sent! I’d like to thank Erik V. at Fitbit for excellent customer service and replacing my lost Fitbit!

Just another camera app but with useful overlays for framing shots. Great app for scouting and building storyboards.

***UPDATE: Currently not working with iOS8. Wait for the update.***
