Made in America? No Way!

Motorola is closing down its U.S. factory.  We wanted "Made in America."  We just don't support it when it comes to our cell phones.  That is on us.  They were barely open a year.

Water Damage Repair

Water damage can usually be fixed if we get it in a timely manner.  Our repair rate on water damage is great if you get the phone to us ASAP.  The rice trick does not work.  Don't wait until the insides have corroded.  Cost is $75 – no matter what phone you have.

Summer is HERE

Summer is officially here!  Yes - absolutely true!  Kids are graduating from high school and junior high school.  What do they want more than anything?  An upgrade on their current phone.  Bring in your old phone and trade it towards a "new for you" phone.  Or, just come in and check through our hundreds of phones on sale.  We would love to see you.

America the Beautiful



Memorial Day - a US federal holiday.  We honor and remember those who have died in while serving our country during war.  We honor them for protecting us and protecting who we are - a culturally diverse society.  On Monday, please take a moment to remember those who died for us - then and now.  We are "the land of the free and home of the brave."

Unlock Your Pay

Let me start by saying, I don't like Payday Loans of any sort.  The charges are exorbitant.  And, with today's immediateness, you cannot "float" a check.  This is not to say I haven't had a need or not taken advantage when the need was great.  So, when I found this story on Phone Arena about an app named Activehours, I thought I would pass it along.  This is a way to cash in your current hours and have that deducted from your pay all by way of your cell phone.  There are some rigid rules in that you must have a bank account, be using an online time sheet and be verified.  But, there is no fee to pay it back.  If you have the extra money, they do accept tips.  If you don't, they are okay with that, too.  So, if that need is great, you may want to try Activehours first.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 - All in the Details

Sometimes, it is all just in the details.  A tablet that can be used as a laptop.  Welcome to the Microsoft Surface Pro 3.  A powerful tablet.  Cover is a usable keyboard.  The stand actually holds the tablet up with varying angles (no more bending to suit the tablet - the tablet stand moves to suit you).  And, of course my favorite, multiple colors.  (If you've read my stuff, you know I'm a color freak!  Who needs dull?)  Price starts at $799 (reasonable for a laptop, a bit high for a tablet).

Samsung Galaxy Gear - A Success

The Samsung smartwatch had an incredible 1st quarter sales.  Their smartwatch is functional and fairly attractive (rather than elegant).  So, is the smartwatch here to stay?  What do you think about this new step forward?

The Hero Cat - Tara

Kudos to Tara, the hero cat.  I have a "guard" cat.  He would protect me in a heart beat.  And, cats consider children a part of their family.  Today, Tara is my hero, too.

Exploring the Unknown

Have $1500?  Want to join the Google Glass Explorer program?  Actually, not a bad price to help "explore" the "unknown."  I'm considering.  I don't have a couple of million to go to the moon (when that trip becomes available).  Going into outer space would have to be first on my list.  But "inner space?"  We don't get many opportunities anymore as a group to explore.  This could be fun!

Remember When ... Blackberry

Blackberry is sticking to what Blackberry does best - mobile phone devices.  Remember when you "lusted" for a Blackberry?  It was the new "it" device to own.  There was a keyboard.  "Let me check my Blackberry," was one of the commonest answers for setting up meetings.  I hope they stick around for the long haul.

August - Intro for new iPhone 6

On the way to work this morning, I heard the news!  The Apple iPhone 6 is coming out early.  Instead of this fall, they intend to introduce the new cellphone in August.  No one has seen any actual pictures, so I am going with the assumption that, as usual, it will be similar to their previous, well-made phones.  This one is expected to have a 4.7" screen.  Also, of note, the Apple phablet will be introduce in September for those of you who prefer the larger screen and larger phone.  The phablet is expected to have a 5.5" screen.  Remember, we will be happy to buy your older cellphone so that you can go on out and buy this new iPhone 6.  I'm including one of the various concept photos below:

My Other Car is a BMW

We all know:  Your Other Car is a BMW.  Don't we wish.  But, when you get one, get their electric car.  Then go out and spend the rest of your money on an solar carport.  Mind you, it is still in the spec stage, but what an idea!  First, I have to start earning those millions. :)

Picked Your Horse Yet?







Met a Kentucky Derby newbie this AM.  Had just moved to Louisville.  Definitely going to the Derby - but couldn't decide whether the best experience would be the infield or the seats.  Either way, what a wonderful first experience!  He hadn't picked his horse yet.  So many possibilities, so many awesome horses.
