Yeah, I'm not a phablet fan myself. 5.2" is the sweet spot for me. That's why I love my LG G2. Until this phone I've always wanted to be upgrading at every chance I had but I've lost that desire since I got my G2 and now sit back and watch all the new stuff coming out. Mine is the right size, I love the button… » 11/20/14 5:07am Thursday 5:07am

Yeah, I'm not sure how well they work on me because I can't really think of too many examples of having seen it. The ones that work best on me are ones that provide a way for me to rationalize the purchase. If I walk into a pizza place and they have a decorative poster up that says "It's okay to eat an entire pizza by… » 11/17/14 9:33am 11/17/14 9:33am

That's about where I was at with Time Warner ~$70 for 50/5 but lately I've seen upload rates increase almost to the point of double. Things started to complete so quickly compared to usual that it made me think something went wrong with it mid-upload. I'd love to get a modem like this if nothing else because my… » 11/12/14 12:54pm 11/12/14 12:54pm

Another option, if it's possible, is to stay at a cheaper place. It seems to go that generally the less expensive a hotel is, the more likely their WiFi is to be free. The same in my experience has applied to parking as well. You'll save money on the room, get free WiFi and a chance of free parking (if you drove). » 11/07/14 10:31am 11/07/14 10:31am

I never understood Google's strong stand against expandable storage. The only thing I read of them saying about it is that it confused people having 2 storage locations. I see that being a simple fix of not including an SD card with the phone. The 'confused' people will just have on board memory as they do in phones… » 11/07/14 6:03am 11/07/14 6:03am

Also check out Cruise Compete when booking one. We used a normal travel agent about 3-4 times that charged a fee and, while good at her job, just did what it took to get everything done. We then took a family member's advice and tried Cruise Compete... not only did they do all the same stuff and not charge a fee for… » 11/06/14 1:13pm 11/06/14 1:13pm

So I need the education/experience of the higher end courses but the low/free cost and flexibility of the lower ones. Will any of these (or something else not mentioned) help me get there? I know you get out what you put in so there's no shortcut to the end but which courses will have you coming out in a more advanced… » 11/04/14 12:54pm 11/04/14 12:54pm

I generally solely use well-known browsers across all my devices but I tried a lesser known one on Android I really like and going back to Chrome makes it feel like such a heavy app at least on my device. I do use it as my main browser on my desktop. » 11/03/14 5:22am 11/03/14 5:22am

This isn't the most evil thing but it's all I could think of. My college had one of the conveyor belt Coke vending machines. Well, I found out online that if you order something from it, put your hand into where it drops out and hold the flap shut, the machine thinks it never dropped it onto the belt in the first… » 10/24/14 5:34am 10/24/14 5:34am

Free isn't always a full explanation because people are willing to pay for proxies, file host memberships, newsgroups, donate to torrent/link sites, etc to keep being able to pirate. I think a bigger problem is that pirated copies are often superior to the legitimate ones. People who are willing to shell out $50+ for… » 10/22/14 10:38am 10/22/14 10:38am

Being able to upgrade part-by-part is a pretty big benefit. It also gives those who are sticklers about what brand parts they use the flexibility to change them. People can also change-up the case to make it unique. All that aside though, one of the primary reasons for a Hackintosh is 'because I can.' It's about doing… » 10/22/14 5:49am 10/22/14 5:49am

I had an overspending problem on video games. I worked at GameStop and would buy pretty much any game that at least somewhat interested me. People would trade in a newer game and it'd often only have one SKU to take it in by regardless if it was the regular or collectors edition. I'd find myself picking it up because… » 10/21/14 5:46am 10/21/14 5:46am

I do find it quite the gray area having to take it case by case but I find the integrity of the company the loophole is with to play a big factor. If it's a company with a pretty good reputation and you can tell (even though they're all in the business of making money) they're not about bending people over to pinch… » 10/20/14 11:14am 10/20/14 11:14am
