I didn’t want to spend another $40 on a case, especially for a phone that’s now a backup since I just got the new iPhone 6s Plus. So I start searching around on eBay and immediately found a seller who was asking $12 for it.
After digging around, I found another eBayer selling the same case for $9.99
Then I searched ebay deeper and found one for $8.33 but there was no ‘Buy It Now’ option. So I placed my bid and during the last hour of the auction, someone outbids me. Understandably I was disappointed at this point and I was thinking about giving up and just buying from the guy selling it at $9.99
I decided to scour eBay one more time and sure enough I found another seller wanting the same case for $7 and included the ‘Best Offer’ option. I send him my offer price of $6 but he just lets me sit there for almost 24 hours and doesn’t respond.
After getting tired of waiting, I found yet another eBayer selling a case made by the same manufacturer but it was the higher model# case that retails slightly higher ($45) than the one i was shopping for. He was asking $6.49 and had the ‘Best Offer’ option available.
I didn’t want to risk pissing the seller off by low balling him cuz I’ve been at this for 2 days. I didn’t think i’d find a deal better than this, so I made an offer of $6 and within 10 minutes the seller accepts.
$45 protective case for $6!
Number 1 tip saving money on eBay? Patience and lots of it!

Every time we talk on Skype (which isn’t much) it seems like the signal is lost within about 1-2 minutes. If we’re lucky you’ll have up to 5 minutes of talk time before we’re cut off. This has been going on for about 2 years and it seems to be getting worse. We had a discussion a while ago on exactly how to improve your internet. I don’t expect you to remember all what was said, so I’ll post the brief version of what we discussed in this blog.
These are several methods that I think could improve your internet tremendously and you really should explore these 3 options.
Option #1 – Get a WiFi range booster:
This is by far the quickest, cheapest and easiest method in attempting to improve your signal. Nowadays just about any electronics store has them for about $35 and you’ll find them even cheaper on eBay. If the extender doesn’t help much, then chances are there’s a bottleneck going on with your landlord’s internet. Since your WiFi connection is shared by about 40 tenants I have a bad feeling this method will only give you mixed results. Since this is the easiest method I suggest trying this one first.

Wow… that was super fast! So yea anyone using a newer iPhone/iPad, the latest operating system for it (iOS 8.1.1) was jailbroken a few days ago.
Where to download:
Here’s some step-by-step instructions to do it (very simple):
I’ve been running this on my iPhone 5s for the past 24 hours and I can honestly say it works a little better than the last one (by Pangu) from a few weeks ago. If you’re still using version 8.1 then I suggest you upgrade and jailbreak because that older version was terrible at conserving battery life. Version 8.1.1 does a surprisingly better job and some of the well known veteran crackers are now vouching for this latest jailbr… 🙂
