    If you’re under 40, you’re probably familiar with the wireless world we live in. Teens are even more so, since they’ve barely known life without smartphones. But many parents, including Baby Boomers, are still learning the ropes.

    When your parents got their first smartphone, you probably sat down and tutored them on using new features.

    What Works Best for You? Unlimited or Shared Data

    Posted by John Adams on Apr 3, 2017 3:59:22 PM

     

    When you’re choosing a wireless plan, you’re often faced with a huge decision: unlimited or shared data?

    Everything you do on your cell phone uses mobile data, including calling and texting. Mobile data usage is calculated using gigabytes (GB). Voice calls and texts use such a small amount of data that most carriers don’t count their usage against monthly data plans.

    4 Apps to Help You Accomplish Your New Year’s Resolutions

    Posted by Erika Allen on Jan 11, 2017 9:43:12 AM

     

     

    We get into this pattern every year: It’s a New Year and it’s time for change. But then, inevitably, we fail. In recent years, the news is riddled with why we’re so bad at New Year’s resolutions.

    Social science researchers from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania looked into why we even bother with making New Year’s resolutions. They found that the start of a year is a “temporal landmark,” basically an easy way to separate the “new” you from the “old” you. And this feeling isn’t restricted to January 1. The researchers found these temporal landmarks can occur on birthdays, the start of the month, and even the start of the week.
