APPLE Mashers - C dJcs - Wall Art How To Protect Holiday Tech Gifts (StatePoint) It's going to be a high-tech holiday season. Whether you are buying a mobile device for a loved one or browsing online stores on your tablet from the comfort of your couch or using your smartphone to comparison shop while you cruise the mall, technology is taking holiday shopping into the 21st century. Consumers who dread the crowds of brick and mortar holiday shopping increasingly are using the Web to look for deals and corn pare prices. Mobile apps also can help consumers search and identify the item they want, determine its availability and locate the most convenient place to pick it up or have it delivered. Additionally, new mobile couponing apps often offer local deals. "High-tech shopping is a growing trend in several 2011 holiday shopping surveys as 46 percent of consumers plan to make mobile purchases of everything from clothes to gift cards this holiday season," said Joe Erdeman, president of Assurant Solutions' extended protection solutions business. "Shoppers surfing their smartphones also will look for great deals on high- tech devices with 36 percent of shoppers planning to purchase one or more gadgets for friends and family during the holiday season." Whether you are giving or receiving these high tech gadgets, it ts mportant to remember that these devices are significant financial investments. And savvy shoppers not only look for great value, but also peace of mind. Protection plans can help by making sure that such expensive devices remain in good working condition when the time comes to trade in and upgrade to the latest and greatest. Mobile device owners can be very hard on their smartphones or tablets, resulting in accidental damage and loss so you may want to consider purchasing a protection plan. When purchasing a protection plan it is tmportant to rewew the terms and conditions, according to the experts at Assurant Solutions, a leading global provider of extended warranties. Some plans offer a wider range of protection than others. Be sure to ask the following q uestions: Is the plan ommercial 000 000 ptions EGASCheck- rA3P. p, LwJcou.at 24 Hour Emergency Service Winter Reading The Winter Reading Program is underway for the San Diego County Library.

The Little Camp That Could continued from page 3 "Although most people come to the camp to enjoy nature and improve their instrumental skills, at the Julian Family Fiddle Camp, they invariably meet, eat and play music with the other cam pers. This is essential," says Ellisman, "for while the 'ledger sheet' is important, the true measure of a music camp's success is how often camp attendees get out and play tunes with others once the camp is over." As an example, EIlisman references arecent comment posted on the Julian Family Fiddle Camp's website by a past attendee: "1 made many new friends and contacts through fiddle camp and enjoy seeing them around town at different events. I recently hosted a bluegrass jam at my house with some of my fiddle camp friends along with several performance level bluegrass musicians. I was humbled by the joy of that music and those who came to share the evening in my home. I look forward to seeing everyone at fiddle camp next year!!!!" "Now that," smiles Ellisman, "is success." You can check the camp's website, www.familyfiddlecamp.com for more information, or contact Avery Ellisman directly by calling (760) 522-8458.
