I'm a self-proclaimed professional product tester -along with 800,000 other jobless Americans... Pardon my sense of humor. I'm really a stay at home mom of four (ages 3, 9, 16, 18) and caretaker of my combat disabled veteran husband (my soulmate). I very much enjoy contributing to the products I buy, even if I don't get a bunch of free stuff. There are great products and some not so great products out there, and I believe we all have a responsibility to get the word out. Capitalism at its finest.
Dell is the only brand of computer I will buy. I've had two desktops and I'm currently typing on my new Dell laptop. My desktops lasted for years without ANY problems. I just wanted new, so I'd give the old ones to the kids. The only issue I had was immediately after buying one of my desktops it wouldn't turn on. Dell sent out a tech to my house. We ended up exchanging the comp through the mail. They made it really easy with UPS picking it up at my door, and they paid for everything. When my new comp showed up they added extra stuff onto it like wireless and an extra cd drive. That was cool.
GameStop is our go to place for all our games. Everywhere we've found the games are pretty much a set price, so why not go to GameStop where the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. There have been plenty of times me and hubby (who know nothing) wanted to get the newest game for one of our children as a gift, and every time the staff knows exactly what our kids want. They are so helpful. We've tried in the past to go to other stores, but couldn't find anyone in the department to help us or couldn't find anyone who knew anything. This is why we are very loyal to GameStop.
I love my iPad. I love that the kids can't really mess much up by even going into the settings. It's not like a big computer where kids can delete important files rendering your computer useless. They made the iPad so simple and easy to use. We bought a survivor case for it that has been protecting it very well from my three year old son. The only problem we have is that everyone in our family argues over it. Time to buy another one.
I loved this little thing so much that I bought an iPad because of it. I wasn't aware there was way more to it than just music. I love the apps you can download on it. We have a survivor case for both our iPod and iPad, and they've been protected quite well.
It might be expensive, but it's well worth it. The reason we went with this case is because this is the one the VA uses for Ipods they give to disabled Vets. I bought this for my iPad, and it has protected it wonderfully from my crazy little three year old son.
My nine year old son is bugging me to review this game, just like the other one. He wants me to tell everyone that he likes the three starter Pokémon Treeko, Torchic, and Mudkip. The legendary Pokémon Kyogre is really fun and hard to catch without a masterball. I have no clue what he's talking about, but he loves the two newest Pokémon DS games so much that he's driving his family crazy talking about them and forcing me to review them on here. LOL.
My nine year old son is sitting next to me bugging me to review his new game. He wants me to say that defeating Team Magma and becoming the Pokémon Champion is cool. He likes that it's like a puzzle and you have to find people and give stuff to them. He says the gym leaders are really strong and challenging! He won't stop talking about it, that's how much he loves this game.
My two teenage daughters and my nine year old son love the Xbox. We've had one for about 4 years, and the other is a couple years old. They've gotten lots of use out of them. All their friends use the Xbox360.
