Speck’s CandyShell for IPod Touch 2nd Generation

2011-04-29

Speck’s CandyShell for the 2nd generation iPod Touch is a durable, long-lasting case for the popular Apple device. With its hard exterior and soft interior, the CandyShell is one of the best cases to get for the iPod Touch (2nd generation) in terms of protection and style.

General Overview

Speck’s CandyShell case features a hard exterior combined with a soft, rubberized interior. This results in good shock resistance if you ever drop your device with the case on. The case covers the back and sides of the iPod Touch, leaving only the front and bottom of the device open. The power button on the top, as well as the volume control buttons on the left of the device, are also securely covered. WIth the bottom of the device still exposed, this allows users to easily charge the iPod Touch without having to remove the case. The headphone port is also exposed to allow for easy access.

The rubberized interior of the CandyShell also provides your iPod Touch with a very snug fit. When fitted properly, your device will not move around in the case. Also, rubberized ridges will outline the front of your device, providing protection in case you drop your iPod Touch facedown on a flat surface.

Accessories

When my purchased case arrived by post, I was given not only a case but also a screen protector to prevent fingerprint smudges from smearing the screen. Also included in my package was a small orange cloth used to clean my iPod Touch. I am unsure whether these accessories come with all packages, as I did not order mine from the Speck website but, rather, a third party site.

Color Options

At the time I was shopping around for an iPod Touch case/protector, there were only two color options. You could get a white case with a cranberry red interior, or you could choose to get a black case with a yellow interior. Currently at Speck’s website, it is listed that there are now four completely different colors that you may choose from. The previous two color options that I mentioned are no longer listed on this product site but may be found elsewhere. The four color options that are listed are:

-a berry blue exterior with a lighter blue for the interior and other rubber parts, like the Speck logo on the back of the case and volume control cover
-a bubblegum pink exterior with a lighter pink for the interior and other rubber parts
-a jetblack exterior with a lighter shade of black for the interior and other rubber parts
-a white exterior with a gray interior, as well as gray for the other rubber parts

Pros

-lightweight and adds minimal amount of extra bulk
-highly protective
-colorful design
-easy access to charging port and headphone port

Cons

-the rubber ridge at the bottom of the case, as well as the plastic under it, are more flexible than the rest of the case and are thus more susceptible to breaking
-not easy to put on or remove, but this may be seen as a plus

Overall, Speck’s CandyShell for the iPod Touch (2nd generation) is highly recommended for anyone looking for a stylish, protective case.

You Have Choices And The Power To Reverse Low Self Esteem

 

 

People who are suffering from low self esteem typically are able to tell. Poor self esteem is likely to affect your views of life. Self doubt and negative thinking is a typical consequence. The end result of poor self esteem is often negative outcomes. There are ways that can increase self esteem, especially with enough support.

 

Keep in mind that poor self esteem is a a conditioned behavior that can be changed. This attitude is influenced by numerous factors. How people responded to you had a huge influence on your self worth when your were young. As kids, we rely on what individuals in authority say to us. How our peers at school relate to us will affect our self image as well. If the cycle is recurring, then there is a typical consequence that leads to thinking habits carried into adulthood.

 

The number one thing you need to do for bettering how you feel about yourself is to resolve to take action. You will feel powerful, and hopefully a little confident, if you educate yourself about the subject. Changes like this occur little by little and demand persistence. Thus you have to be persevering and work on it slowly but surely. Then, you simply begin by raising your awareness about your thoughts. As you go through your day, observe how you feel cautiously. You’ll start to be aware of habitual patterns of thinking. Awareness of your thinking patterns will enable you to discover what should change.

 

There are many ways you can set about it, and each one has its upsides. A superb place to begin is with your general behavior. Start out modifying a couple of simple terrible thoughts by deciding to focus on even little accomplishments. Substituting the opposite of a bad thought, when you notice one, is a good strategy. Also, it is extremely helpful to take some time and perform the following exercise. Simply remember something specific you have done that went the right way. You can always something good in each circumstance. Whatever it was, it doesn’t really matter. A single optimistic thought is going to to another.

 

You are going to quickly realize that several things didn’t go wrong at all. It is simply that you have been directing your attention a lot on the terrible things. With perseverance you will be able to pick up new ways of thinking. Success is sure if you are patient. If you practice regularly you will have a much more optimistic mindset.

Pc Hardware Question?

This news is mentioned in the email from Roxanna Staine @ sansa converter. But I am sorry I failed to find the orginal resource.

Something wrong with PC, messes up on games, a hardware issue.
Motherboard: ASUS M3n78-VM
Processor: AMD Phenom ™ 9850 Quad-core (4 CPUs), ~ 2.5 GHZ
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4870 x2
Memory Type (RAM): DDR2 (PC2-6400) 6 gigs.
(Windows 7, Gaming Computer).
Okay, so i know quite a bit about computers but not as much about hardware as i do about software. To save your time I’m not explaining the computer problem, just need help on getting the right parts for my trial and error plan. I intend to get the same graphics card, but would not mind a better processor/motherboard. It has to be compatible with AM2 socket. Also I’m buying from FRYS so has to be in stock there, once I know what’s wrong then I’m fine with ordering off amazon/newegg etc.
My motherboard is the smaller type so I can’t connect all my fans to it, though that’s not a big deal, just want to know if i can get something better than what i have but still be able to use it with my current processor (as i mainly wish to see which specific part needs to be replaced) but as I’m replacing everything besides my ram, i would also like to know what part would be even better for my gaming experience. So i probably need 2 lists here…first i want to replace the processor and see if thats what was messing everything up, if not then the motherboard, if not that then my graphics card. I have a feeling that it may even be more than one part…as i had this issue before and it only got worse in time (probably ruined my motherboard) so those of you who know your stuff please help me out, would very much appreciate it…don’t want to spend a lot of time in frys asking/ explaining to tech nerds, but if this isn’t solved soon then i probably will have to.
