Which Cell Phone Carrier is Right for You?

Choosing a cell phone carrier is absolutely overwhelming.  These days, it can be as difficult as picking a partner for marriage. Even spokespeople for the carriers are switching their minds and changing to new plans. There are an endless array of shared data plans, installment plans, leases, and bring-your-own-device plans.   Is it even possible to know which cell phone company is the best match for your lifestyle?   Bye-Bye Contracts

Complete Auto Maintenance: A Mile-by-Mile Checklist

If you own a car, you probably already know that regular maintenance is important. Not only can proper maintenance prevent costly or potentially dangerous car-related disasters, but it’ll help extend the life of your car. While most are aware of this, many still fail to take proper care of their vehicles. Maybe it’s because auto maintenance isn’t a convenient experience, maybe it’s because we fear that repairs are going to be too expensive, or maybe it’s because many of us simply don’t know what we should be doing to maintain our cars.

Premium Gas…Should I Be Paying For it?

Every time you pull up to a service station, you have a decision to make: what level of octane should you choose to put in your gas tank?  For many of us, we don’t give this a second thought…but maybe we should.   What is Octane Anyway?
If you’ve ever wondered what those three numbers on the fuel pump mean, 87, 89, and 91 or some similar variation, you’re not alone. You may also hear these octane levels referred to as regular (87), mid-grade (89) and premium (91 to 93).   Octane ratings indicate the performance capability of the fuel. Gasoline engines rely on the ignition of air and fuel compressed together as a mixture.

Technology You Need (& Technology You Want)

They're saying that we'll have millions of driverless cars on the road by 2035. And Amazon has just built a grocery store where you can just grab your stuff and walk out (with no checkout lines).  But we can't buy driverless cars just yet and Amazon's store is currently limited to Amazon employees.  Fortunately, every holiday season, it seems like there’s some awesome new technology that you can buy that’s promising to change your life forever. Sometimes, these pieces of technology do change the game, and other times, they’re just passing fads.
