When my daughter first envisioned herself at college this year, she saw herself zipping around campus on her bike, listening to music as she rides to class with a cool wind in her hair.  She found out that it was hot and humid with no cool winds, the path was uphill on her way to all her [...]

The official iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release date was September 19, 2014 - at least for the lucky ones.  Some of us stayed up until 3:00am ET on pre-order day to place our order, and we still have to wait until October 14 to get our new iPhone 6 Plus.  While I contemplate [...]

Don't get [...]
