Why You Should Read Your Cell Phone Bill

“From the Fence with JP”

Most people have a cell phone of some sort, (Blackberry, Smart Phone, iPhone, ordinary Mobile Phone) some people have more than one (debatable if they are considered lucky or unlucky). 

 

Mobiles have become the norm, an essential part of our daily lives. They are so common that many people not only take them for granted but also, may not bother to ensure they are getting value for their dollar.

 

How many people receive a gas bill or a hydro bill, look at the total with disgust but then simply pay it and resign them selves to the fact that it is a necessary evil?

Cold Fingers: Touch Screen Compatible Gloves

Touch Screen Gloves – Who Would Have Thought?

Lately around here, it has been bitter cold. Now call me a wuss, but when it is 30 below, I don’t like to go outside period, let alone go outside without being bundled up with hats, mitts and scarf.  However, for some touchscreen owners, those nice warm gloves that you have on make it very hard to, say, answer a call without taking off your glove.

 

For those who still have resistive touchscreen phones, this may not be a problem. Because this type of screen is activated by the pressure you apply to it, you can still use it with your gloves on,  or for more accuracy a stylus.  However, this is an older technology, and newer phones often use capacitive touchscreen.
