Zagg Invisible Shield Follow Up – BodyGuardz Review

not so invisible

I will start by saying this, DO NOT BUY THE ZAGG INVISIBLE SHIELD FOR IPHONE! It is a complete waste of money!

I received my zagg invisible shield on Febuary 10th, and recount my installation horror story here:

Im not one to completely disown a company, however, this has to be the worst product you could ever put on your iphone. Here are just a couple of things that Zagg needs to seriously improve on before they ever consdier selling their invisible sheild to anyone!

Installation was the most frustrating experience I have gone though in a while! Now, I can understand that it was my first time and that it does require a bit of a delicate touch, however, should it really be that hard?

Decreased touch response on the screen. I brought this up with zagg support and they said “You’ll get use to the change in touch performance. It’s not hindered, just different.” What is that supposed to mean? Why would I want my touch performance to be different than if I had nothing on the screen at all? To their defense, i never did call customer support. But I was at this point fed up with the product and going to just live with it.

Now if those were the only problems with the product I think that I would be OK, but obviously they are not!

The cover becomes severly discolored! I own a white iphone and after only 2 months with the zagg “invisible” shield it had become anything BUT invisible! Take a look at the above picture after removing the back cover. Continue reading Zagg Invisible Shield Follow Up – BodyGuardz Review

Targeted marketing worked again! Somehow they have been blasting me with advertisements about the Zagg Invisible Shield. Boasting its scratch proof material, crazy thin construction and easy installation. Easy installation?

I got this thing in the mail after about a week, and was pretty excited to get see what this thing could do. I had already watched the online video and was pretty confident that I could get this thing on there. They always make things look so easy on video don’t they!

If you know how professional window tint is installed, then the concept is very similar. You spray on this included liquid onto your fingers and the plastic, which keeps it from sticking right away and allows you to get everything adjusted. Then just squeegee out the bubbles and your done!

Yea, things didn’t go down like that at all! First of all trying to take off the paper from the plastic with wet fingers is near impossible. I ended up using a pair of tweezers. Second, make sure you are in the NASA rocket building lab with absolutely NO lint, hair, or fuzz because this thing is a magnet. Continue reading Zagg Invisible Shield

Mafia live tips and updates

Mafia Live

According to a mafia live employee post on getsatisfaction, the game was updated behind the scenes during the middle of the night. Not much appears to be changed except for a few new jobs and a supposubly more stable fight system.

I still don’t see the relevance of the whole mafia live fight system in general. One end says that people can sit online all day and spam for family members, in turn making them stronger and able to beat up on people with less family. Then an update was put out crippling this factor and making items more powerful. Now someone with 1 family memeber can attack someone with 1000 family members and still win as long as they have the right amount of equipment.

So what is the purpose of the mafia live slogan, “Build your family”? Isn’t the whole premise and success of this game bent on the virality and user growth? In its current state this no longer matters, i mean really who cares if invite someone because it doesnt get me anything other than the ability to do some jobs that without family I could not.

Mafia Live Tips for Newbs:

1) Buy equipmenet, if you are not able to find yourself anyone to add online – See my previous post – then stock up on revolvers or other low cost equipment to keep yourself from being from loosing to many fights.

iPhone – Love the phone Hate the service

Since purchasing my new iphone 3 days ago, ive had over 10 dropped calls and every day there has been a point where I was unable to place a call. I just get a Beep Beep when trying to dial out. The iPhone’s Beep Beep is now the new Blue screen of death. If you hear it on a call, call has been dropped. If you hear it while dialing tuff luck, your call was not placed.

I guess I can just watch a YouTube video while I wait for service to become available again, “fewest dropped calls” my ass. As most of you can tell by now, I switched over from Verizon. Best damn phone service in the land IMO!

As much as I hate the service, I think im still going to have to stay with AT&T just beause the iPhone is just so damn amazing, with full Web browsing support, and the HUGE number of Free and Paid applications. Its just a clear winner for me. I just hope i dont end up throwing my phone out the window when I need to make a call and can’t.
