While I see your points, I've always felt cruises were the better choice for me because people brag endlessly about the alcohol at all-inclusives but I don't drink which would drop the value significantly. Also, I love the fact that cruises take you to multiple places so there's something new to see and do every day. » 12/15/14 6:21pm Monday 6:21pm

Also, if you don't have a bucket or good aim, try going outside. Depending on where it still may not be pleasant but it'll let you face forward with easier cleanup. No matter how you do it, just use enough force that it doesn't drop down your front. When you face down you're able to lean away from your body and lose… » 12/08/14 5:36am 12/08/14 5:36am

I've had first hand experience in this happening. Luckily it wasn't family but a not-too-close friend of one of my parents. Things fell through on a place we were considering buying and it caused a huge problem between my wife and the agent. Now a while later, she suggested next time we look to use someone else we… » 12/02/14 5:48am 12/02/14 5:48am

The only difference between micro and macro evolution is time. People who are looking for one species to turn into another is looking for a baby to go to sleep one night and wake up an old person the following morning. The change in your age day to day is the micro evolution of your life whereas going from a baby to… » 12/01/14 5:24pm 12/01/14 5:24pm

While you may not need it for a while since you just got all that free space, Microsoft is giving Office 365 users "unlimited" OneDrive storage. (It's rolling out. They set me at 10 TB and said to email them if I need more.) For $9.99 a month with access to the latest office it's a pretty sweet deal. » 11/28/14 12:51pm 11/28/14 12:51pm

Background playback is something YouTube should support from the get-go. Sometimes I just want to flip to another app quickly while's a video playing and come right back not caring if I just hear the audio for that portion. Other times I'll play a video that's the entire soundtrack to a video game and would like to… » 11/24/14 1:48pm 11/24/14 1:48pm

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 11/20/14 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
