My Search for an Ipad Air's (longer) Lightning Cable!

So, two months ago, I thought of putting my Ipad Air within my reach close to my bed so that I could read before sleeping. Sometimes, I do my work searches online while on bed too, so I wouldn't miss my favorite TV program. The only thing annoying is that the cable is too short for it to reach the bed from the charging outlet. The longest lightning cable from Apple store is 2 meters.

Then, I thought of buying one online for 8 meters long. Price wasn't bad, so I was happy when I saw one.

I also bought one for my Iphone 4S with the regular cable with the same length. After 3 weeks of use, the lightning cable no longer works! I discovered after I upgraded my Ipad Air's IOS, that was the time I discovered it no longer works! It was upsetting.
So, just a word of advice for Apple couldn't just rely using non-Apple product accessories with your gadgets because it would only be a waste of money. 

I went to the Apple store and told them my experience about it, and they told me the only recommended product they have is Belkin for accessories...cable, casings, etc. I asked them if they have longer than 2 meters, but they don't have one. Ugh!

So, I didn't have any choice but to buy the cable. Why couldn't they make a longer one, if they wouldn't even recommend other non Apple products in the market? They just so overly cautious with their products, but they are always slow in making some more accessories for their products for longer charging cables, or probably longer battery life! These are just accessories, but it could be a big deal for many customers who need one.
Just my opinion!...

Reviews On Studio Headphones

One way of getting a product before you buy them either online or at the store is to be always vigilant when it comes to listening or reading customer feedbacks and reviews, right? I am a regular shopper, and I get a lot of positive experiences just by reading customer reviews for an item I would like to buy, particularly when I do online shopping.

If you are planning to buy a good headphone, it is so easy to see a lot of them everywhere. So many brand names, styles, models, prices, etc. It is a good way to give you a better chance of choosing what really works for you in the end. But how about the quality?

Being open to certain feedback and reviews will be a big help to get you that best headphone you are dreaming of. Just read full review of some of studio headphones on the link provided and start from there.

How to Conduct an Effective Business Lunch

A successful business personality knows how to get work done in any restaurant. As long as you have the right strategy and approach.

  • Begin and end the lunch with a firm handshake because you don't want to put out a limp hand.
  • Choose restaurants that are conducive to talking, so avoid trendy ones as they are often too dark and noisy.
  • Wise choice of foods is also a vital consideration. As much as possible, no drinking of alcohol at lunchtime, then choose something that can be eaten simply, NOT to the point when you all end up slurping oysters! :)
  • It's okay to have chit chats a bit then be always very direct to switch back the conversation business and say like " so, tell me what you're interested in doing" or "what is it we can do for you?"
  • If the lunch is getting tense, try injecting some humor.
