30 Sep

You liked the movie “The Smurfs”? You like chocolate? Then this is for you!
The chocolate Smurfs box is begging you “eat me, eat me“.
I’ve seen it in Belgium but check it out, Smurfs are taking over the world and maybe they are available near you.

Thanks to Raoul from Neuhaus for his help.

Screenshots with an iPhone. As easy as 1, 2, 3!

28 Sep

So you don’t know how to take a screenshot of your screen ? You don’t have to worry anymore, it’s easy and very useful.
A screenshot is a picture of the screen you are looking at.You can screenshot videos, newspaper, websites scree …basically anything you can see on the screen of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
FIRST. Push the home button and the swith off button simultaneously … Clic/clac you just made your first screenshot !!
SECOND. Where do i find my screenshot ? It’s easy, it’s in your photo album. Just click on the sunflower (it’s the last pic of you camera roll).
THIRD. Send it by mail, mms or to you mobileMe gallery. You can also use the screenshot to personnalize your contacts in your addressbook and use it as a contact picture.

Now, why do you need screenshot ?
I use them in my powerpoint presentations at work, to show off my high scores, to keep souvenirs of skype conversations with my nephew …
In conclusion, everyone will find its very own use to the screenshots.

Otterbox cases

26 Sep

When it comes to protect your beloved mobile phone, you face lots of options. Silicone vs hard case, full cover vs bumper or even no protection (greedy you;-) … in short, you are swamped with choices.
I went for Otterbox (great little Colorado-based company).
Why?
They combine silicone and hard case in a trully strong protection against daily bumps and fall, also, they go from flashy and trendy colours to regular black for the busy businesswomen or men among us.
On top of it, the guys at Otterbox created 4 different types of protections to fit best your lifestyle:

      • the Defender, for hyper-clumpsy readers of you who keep dropping their phone
      • the Reflex, inspired by the crumple zone of car
      • the Commuter, a slim mix of silicone surrounded by a polycarbonate shell
      • and the Impact series, a simple one piece silicone shield

The price range for an iPhone4 or Blackberry Bold Otterbox protection goes from 19,95$ from the Impact series to 49,95$ for the Defender.

When you have identified your “level of protection needed”, here comes the delicated question of style: what colour should I choose ? I picked the “Commuter Series” for my Blackeberry (pink and white) as well as for my iPhone (green and white), because I like the idea of the combination of hard and soft all in one protection.


ChaseIt or BeChased ?
ChaseIt, because

      • It’s a great protection that does the job with style
      • The mix of color helps me not to lose my phone whenever I leave it on the couch or a counter
      • I can stick my QRcode inside the polycarbonate shell, who doesn’t ?
      • A special edition (pink and white) is available and it helps fighting breast cancer (10% of the sales goes to Avon Breast Cancer Crusade). Now, you have an excuse to buy it, you are helping!
      • The plugs (for the wire earphones and the spot to charge your phone) protect my phone from dirt, sand (cool when you go to the beach), …
      • Otterbox protects Blackberries, iPhones,LG, HTC, Nokia and Samsung phones

The downside of it is the price that is higher than a regular protection, but it’s not a regular protection and our pricey phone we have in our hands most of the day deserve a little bit of attention. And think about the price to replace the screen when it’s broken …

Don’t tell me it’s another blog about tech !?!?

20 Sep

Yes it is. And it’s my very 1st post on ChaseIt or BChased. What is it about ?
I’m a girl and I’m tired of salespersons trying to convince me to buy

  1. products I don’t need
  2. products that don’t work properly
  3. products that you end up not liking after unwrapping the entire thing …

I’ll try to make you discover smart products you never heard of and that will become mandatory for your survival in your daily life.
For all of you who are tired of being chased by the products (sorry I should say BChased), be in charge now and Chase the right ones !
