As all smartphone users realize by now, it’s quite costly to pay monthly bills. In order to cut costs, Verizon Wireless launched 2 prepaid plans for people on a budget.
These plans are available for different 3G smartphones that run BlackBerry, iOS and Android operating systems. They offer unlimited texts and talk on 2 data plans: 2 GB for a price of $70 or 500 MB for $60.
While such price points are more pricey compared to T-Mobile, which gives a $30 prepaid plan for “unlimited” data on 3G, although the carrier will throttle connections that go over 5GB per month. T-Mobile’s 3G network, which is based on HSPA technology, was even found to be faster than Verizon’s 3G network.
For those that go over their data allowance within the 30-day period, 1GB of data can be purchased for $20. Adding money to your account can be done up to one month in advance.
Nokia is said to be working on offering a true PureView Windows Phone that will boast a sensor just like the one you can find on its 41-megapixel 808 handset.
The mobile phone is going to be made from aluminum instead of polycarbonate usually found in its Lumia line. Expected to unveil on AT&T at the latter part of the year, the phone with a code-name of EOS will sport a very new look. Also, Nokia is working on its very own Windows 8 tablet which will have a debut this 2013, too.
Our feet endures too much stress. Once people reach 50 years old, the majority have already walked a whopping 75,000 miles — or maybe more than that if you are an athlete or a runner. Thus, it’s so important to buy running shoes that will keep your knees and feet healthy.
Ideally, running shoes should be replaced after running for 400 miles. And you don’t need to worry about how you can keep track of the number of miles you ran because the MilestonePod will do it for you!
This is a tracking device attached to your running shoes and then, it warns you before they wear down that you need to buy a new pair already.
While your running shoes may still look new, running gives them constant pounding which makes the materials worn out and unable to provide protection and support. This significant reduction in absorbing shock often results to injury.
MilestonePod lets you track your mileage so you can replace your running shoes at the right time, not so late (which may cause injury) and not so soon (which is a waste of money).
“Made in the USA.” This is something you do not see all the time on a laptop. The critics of Apple concerned about its manufacturing in China and how employees are being treated will most likely be glad to know that Apple will be investing over $100 million to bring its Mac production in the United States.
Today, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc. confirmed that they are planning to begin manufacturing Macs on its very own soil. However, Apple will still depend on 3rd-party manufacturers to be able to actually make the computers. “We’ll be working with people, and we’ll be investing our money,” Cook said.

At times, higher-order aberrations may have an impact on your kid’s eyesight, even if their prescription glasses completely correct their farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism. Such aberrations might be caused by the optical characteristics of the eyes or may be due to the optical restrictions of regular glass lenses.
The latest advances when it comes to lens manufacturing have paved the way to the creation of high-definition eyeglasses that correct such aberrations, possibly giving your kid sharper vision than they have ever had before.

Is the DVD going to die off just like what happened to the VHS tape and the LaserDisc?
It is becoming evident that video streaming is slowly killing its great predecessors. In 2012, it is approximated that there are 3.4 billion online movie views, compared to only 2.4 billion disc views.
Streaming services like Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime have racked up millions and millions of subscribers. Actually, it’s very simple to know why — watching a movie online costs only a fraction of the cost of watching a film on disc, or sometimes it’s even for free!
The popularity of digital streaming is not necessarily a good thing for production companies. Films in their physical form are still much more profitable compared to streamed versions. Also, digital piracy is a flourishing industry in itself. Last year, Thor, Fast Five, and The Hangover II were downloaded illegally over 25 million times.
Whatever happens to the future of DVDs, it’s a smart move to preserve your DVD collection. If you want them to still be seen by your grandchildren, store them in a good quality DVD cabinet. Go to dvdstoragecabinet.org and pick the best storage for your much-loved DVDs!
Today, it’s a fact that many people prefers online window shopping. A recent survey says that this holiday season, a higher percentage of Americans will buy gifts by browsing online or checking out digital catalogs than go shopping at a brick and mortar store or look at print catalogs.
For the majority of people (86.5%), digital catalog shopping has become an undeniable fact of life, based on a survey of over 2,600 consumers initiated by Catalog Spree, an app on iPad and a companion site aggregating hundreds and hundreds of catalogs.
Also, digital catalogs today stand near the peak of the persuaders that shape the holiday wish lists of consumers. When asked about where their ideas come from when it comes to making their holiday wish lists, digital catalogs were cited by 69.1% of the respondents, beating out in-store shopping (63.2%) and looking at print catalogs (63.5%). Browsing online had a bigger influence with 73.8%.
Although a lot of tech firms and startups do not have Duracell or AT&T resources, they may alter their distinctive services in methods that help the needy. After Hurricane Sandy struck New York, there are firms that did exactly that.
Since there are no subways, black car drivers of Uber had a huge increase in demand. Uber needed to pay their drivers twice their usual rate for them to pick up the customers. Initially, the company passed the price increase onto its clients through “surge pricing.” But after a public outcry, the firm took on the expenses itself.
Over 20,000 Airbnb listings are available in areas that were hit by Sandy. Airbnb waives all the fees for such spaces. The firm encourages its whole community to lend a helping hand to people who have been stranded or in dire need because of the calamity.
The technology community of New York has taken a hit from Sandy with lost power, flooded offices, downed data centers and almost lifeless subway networks. However, local co-working companies and spaces are doing the initiative to find room for the refugees of Sandy, giving office space and Internet for workers who need it.
