Nikon Re-Estimate AKA I Don’t Heart Nikon Anymore

Leave a comment Standard

Yes Gentle Reader,

the unexpected should always be expected.  I just didn’t think after receiving notification that my Nikon was covered under warranty as was the battery- that a “Re-Estimate” would occur stating that NOTHING was covered and that I would have to pay $341.84 in order to get the camera into working order.

I Heart Nikon

Yes, Dear Reader, there is a company that prides itself on customer satisfaction.  The Nikon 1AW1 is being repaired/replaced along with the battery which in fact isn’t covered under warranty.  My love of Nikon has bloomed and grown again.  Here is some amazing footage that the Nikon took before she died.

12+1 Best Travel Apps to Take on Vacation

Comments 2 Standard

One of the great things about blogging is that you can repost someone else’s work. Kirsten, at Kids are a Trip put this great list together of essential apps for travel. I absolutely endorse them all and would make one edition. Tripit. Tripit is a brilliant app. You send all those confirmation emails that you stuff into folders or print out for insurance against missing hotel rooms, rental cars or heaven forbid non-existent flight reservations to Tripit and the app spits back your itinerary. Not only do you get a full itinerary with all of those confirmation codes, but you get gate changes and flight delays (provided there is WiFi) too. I love this app and now couldn’t travel without it.

Dear Reader,

it does my heart no good to deliver such a bad review especially since my loyalty to Nikon rivals my steadfastness to the other brand that defines my snobbery when it comes to electronics, Apple. Continue reading
