Last week I pre-ordered an LG G3 from Verizon to take advantage of their fantastic $99.99 sale price. I'm very excited to be upgrading to this killer Android smartphone from my Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I loved the Note 2, but it's time to move on. See ya Samsung! I don't normally use a case [...]

Two of my favorite things about the iPad Air and iPad mini are their size and style.
