2008-05-27 16:39:00
As gas price increase, my bank account decreases. I currently own an SUV (not for long) and to fill up my car, I have to take out a loan…Well, maybe not that bad quite yet, but at over $100, I am just about willing to do anything to fill up for as cheap as possible. ...

2008-05-19 14:30:00

Where are all the Landlines Going?
2008-05-16 18:09:00
I know I am young (24) so my generation definitely knows what a cell phone is and how much money it can save if we just have a cellphone and not a landline. So many people I talked to no longer have landlines these days; or either they do, but never use them. Why? I ...

I Digg Digsby - The Fun Messenger
2008-05-02 17:08:00
I have tried a large number of social networking tools, and have remained unimpressed. Twitter’s desktop tools fail to astonish me, and selections for other tools are even more sparse.

iPhone To Encroach on Blackberry
2008-04-29 20:50:00
What do you think about the iPhone? Is it what it is all cracked up to be? Would you prefer an iPhone or a Blackberry ? Those are a few questions I think about when I look at the current trend and the intentions of both Research in Motion and Apple’s iPhone. Apple is trying to bust in on Blackberry lovers, but do you think they will be successful? Maybe. I currently own an iPhone, and honestly because I love Apple products. They are well made, easy to use, and a joy to have. The iPhone is not the most functional phone when you think about it, but it does what I need it to do, and does it well. Beforehand, I owned a Blackberry. Quite functional if you ask me, but Blackberrys’ just don’t give me that wow-factor that the iPhone has and that is what I like in addition to functionality for my needs/wants. Make no mistake that the iPhone has shaken up the industry. In just the last three months of 2007, smartphone shipments shot up 60 percent from a year ago, according to...
