Apple Care iPhone 4S broken (stuck) power button warranty experience

In this video I discuss how Apple handled the exchange of my iPhone 4S through their extended warranty.

I called in on Thursday, I received the box on Monday through a carrier who sent the phone right-away, then on Friday I had the phone back. So basically a bit more than a week from when I called to when I got the phone back, and I was only phone-less from Monday noon until Friday noon.

Meike Battery Grip – Multi-Power Battery Pack for Canon T2i / 550d – sold by Neewer – unboxing

In this video, I unbox a Meike Battery Grip I purchased from Neewer in eBay. This allows you to have access to all your controls in portrait mode, add a second battery, increase stability, and have access to some advanced shooting functions, such as an intervalometer, long exposures, and delayed shooting.

APC Power Back UPS review

Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) allow you preserve your equipment, and prevent data loss when the electricity goes out. Acting as a fancy power bar, it has a built-in rechargeable battery that can give you some 10-15 minutes of power in case of a power failure, enough to save your files safely, and shut down your computer.

I own two APC Back-UPS. The first one has a LCD screen and plugs in the computer via USB to provide better control and cooperation between the two. I plug in my desktop computer, USB drive, and anything valuable on this one. The second is smaller and I use it more for laptops and smaller peripherals.
