Sundays with Samith

October 4, 2015

Gadget, Journal, Lloyd, Nerd

Samith brings Brighton into Seward on Sunday evenings to play basketball at Concordia’s youth basketball program (there’s some other name for the program, but, yeah). While Brighton is basketballing it up, Samith has been coming over to our house for what we have affectionately been calling, Sundays with Samith™.

We mostly just sit around, eat dinner and talk about things. But this time Samith came bearing gifts. Sometime ago, Samith was lucky enough to purchase a Bag of Crap™. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to purchase a Bag of Crap at the end of a Woot Off™, but I’ve never been quick enough.

One of the items in the Bag of Crap was a TruGuard (presumably also™) screen protector for an iPhone5. Samith knows that I like to live dangerously and don’t keep a cover on my phone, but this is just 0.3mm thick. He thought I could maybe live with that.

The instructions were so brief that we did a lot of assuming about how we were to do things, but it all turned out okay. Their selling point is protection, but the most amazing thing is that there doesn’t seem to be any fingerprint smudges on the screen anymore. That’s really pretty neat.

Thanks Samith, and thanks Bag of Crap.

    A genuine Bag of Crap? I don’t go to Woot as much as I used to, but that’s still exciting. No finger smudges is exciting too. Maybe you could give an update in six months or so. RemindMe! six months “Ask Lloyd about his phone”

      Yeah, I sort of stopped going when Amazon bought them and there were 20 things a day to buy instead of one.

          I did at first, but anymore… Meh. It wasn’t a decision though. Do you go there? Is it worth the time?

            I check it daily and have found some decent things there. Got a video baby monitor for my niece, some headphones for the kids for school, Arron needed a basic Bluetooth keyboard/case for his school iPad. And I have a few meh t-shirts. Cuz nothing’s better than t shirt that says meh.

    I always thought the bag of crap was just fictional… I’m happy to find out its not.

    I’ve been tempted to order that bag before because I love grab bags….but was always afraid to.

    What else was in it? Can you give us a full list?
