Okay, today has nothing to do with decorating or crafting – it is actually a few “techy tips”.
I am so not a “gadget girl” or an “early adopter”.
I was certainly not the first person to get an iPhone, in fact it was Hubby who kept saying I should get one.
And he was so right, I love it and use it all the time – for everything.
Actually, it is a little ridiculous how much I depend on it.
It is my phone, my email portal, my alarm clock, my flash light, my calculator – even my calorie counter (sometimes!).
And then there is Pinterest, and oh yeah – Instagram – I absolutely love Instagram (if you want to stop by I am LPatFindingHome ).
So, when I found this little gadget, I had to share it!
This is my phone.
But here is the thing – I drop it a lot.
I mean a lot.
So it is in this crazy protective Otter Box.
And so I don’t freak out that I will loose everything when I drop it – it is protected with this double layered case.
But then when it is in this case, it doesn’t fit into any docking stations or speakers.
And a girl needs to listen to her music – and I haven’t been able to without taking the phone all the way out of the case which messes it all up.
It is a dock extender (just search it on Amazon – several options).
And it makes it so that I can dock my phone on any docking station – it works like an extender.
Such a crazy simple idea – I even called Apple first to see if they had anything like it – stumped them.
But after several search attempts – I found it – and I couldn’t be happier.
Oh, and another little thing I figured out?
Hubby and I both now have iPads. I have always been a girl who carries around a big “old school” calendar and have to write everything down.
But, I had too many lists and dates in too many different places, so I gave in and started using the calendar on my iPad which syncs with my phone.
Hubby and I can sync our calendars – no more surprise trips (which has historically been an issue!) and I can even schedule in a date from time to time (wink, wink!).
See, technology can even help smooth our a marriage!
Thanks so much for letting me share my techy ideas today!Pin It
