Another iPhone X Glitch? Say It Ain’t So!

The iPhone X is great and all, but can it survive where you live? Were you one of the many early adopters to get the new iPhone X and have still avoided breaking it into a million pieces? Lucky you!

Is Social Media The Secret to Eternal Life?

The ancients had cave paintings for mass communication.  The ancients after them had hieroglyphics for mass communication.  The ancients after them had social media.  Err… The currents now have social media.  But, are we soon to be ancients?  This isn’t some philosophical question, but more of a thought-starter question.  There is one common thing among cave paintings, hieroglyphics, and social media… they were all revolutionary and completely change how we communicated with each other and shared knowledge.  Additionally, they all…

Trump or Zeus?

Trump or Zeus?

Trump’s ability to light up Twitter is almost something of mythological proportions, but alas, here we are enduring every. single. one of them.  Regardless, you are either “Oohrah”-ing or shaking your head in utter embarrassment #covfefe.  The great thing is that if you aren’t on Twitter, you never experience these.  However, you probably sometimes feel like you are missing out on the “fun”.

How Much Time Do We Spend On Our Phones?

How Much Time Do We Spend On Our Phones?

Head down, swift pace, arms cocked, no eye contact.  We all know this look and according to a recent study, 69% of us likely walk like this ourselves.  You aren’t carefully watching where you are stepping, in fact, you probably aren’t watching where you are even going.  You are staring at a 5-inch screen trying to absorb all of the information that the little device in your hands is feeding you and forgetting to look up and notice that you…
