Our second look at weather apps looks at a couple that are crowdsourced. Before we look at the two apps, let's look at what "crowdsourcing" means to getting your forecasts.

A 15" MacBook Pro is by no means a cheap computer, and when the TSA hands your $2800 MacBook Pro to the wrong person... that might make for a bad day.

According to well known Apple tipster Ming-Chi Kuo the new MacBook Pro will be thinner, have Touch ID and an OLED touch bar.

If you're a drone enthusiast and own a DJI drone you are likely using the DJI GO app which just got Facebook Live integration.

Totally going to see this!
Disney just dropped what I would call a true teaser, revealing almost nothing, for their live action Beauty And The Beast film on YouTube.

So this #poutine  thing is coming to my neck of the woods......I may have to see what +Jason Bouwmeester fusses about so much. #Canadians  
Ryan Smolkin has tabbed Lake Zurich and Naperville as the right places to start spreading his love for poutine -- a Canadian delicacy of fries, gravy and cheese curds -- in the Chicago area.

Interesting how we react to certain situations, people and things.

A good (work) friend of mine who works in the same facility has 5 kids just like me. We became good (work) friends when I started working here but we've moved apart since we both have switched departments. We've never actually hung out outside of work since we live in entirely different directions....so we've never met each others families.

His son took a summer job here and was assigned to our department. Thing is, I didn't know it was his son. I looked at this young man a few dozen times and I finally asked him what his last name was.

He told me and I quickly asked him if my friend was his dad....yes he is. I KNEW IT.....that face screams my buddy.

Thing is....even before I knew he was my friend's son I felt this pull to watch over him, take care of him....help him out......kind of interesting. He's a good kid.....makes sense though, cause his dad is full of integrity and hard working attitude.

Got the email.....clicked the claim VR.....and nothing....that went fast!
If you've been a OnePlus fan you may have received an e-mail this morning offering an opportunity to grab a free Loop VR headset. Hope you acted fast.

The only thing this place has that is worth it is The Steakhouse. Otherwise the place smells like a giant urinal cake and the hotel isn't kept up very well. Spend your money elsewhere.

Went to CES 2015 in Vegas and stayed at Excalibur. Loved the hotel and its proximity to Mandalay Bay and the availability of shuttles to LVCC. Lots of complaints here about the resort fees, which I agree with, but that's Vegas....I think all hotels should get rid of the resort fee. The hotel was nice, good staff and clean room. For what we paid, it was a great deal to stay on the Strip.

Great burgers and great cajun fries! Falls in between your Burger King and Red Robin but much better than Burger King for sure! Great staff, that's always important when I write a review, friendly people make food that much better! I'd recommend it!

The crab rangoon are some of the best I've had. Usually places skimp on the creme cheese/crab filling but not these guys! The pork fried rice is amazing with huge chunks of pork that taste amazing! Also love the general tso's chicken. Service is also fast! Good people manning the counters and great customer service!

This place is next to Subway.....I love Subway but skipping their door and opening Pocket's door is totally worth it! Pocket's sandwiches are PRIMO! I always get the southwest chicken sandwich and good Lord! It's a bit pricer than Subway but totally worth it, the ingredients are fresh and delicious! Next time you're in the area and heading to Subway, STOP and go to Pocket's! Great staff too! Friendly, courteous and fast! You won't regret eating at pockets! The Calzone's are awesome too!! They take a bit longer and you have to wait, but call ahead and it'll be ready when you get there!

This was my previous home church! Great people here, really helped me in so many ways! A mix of old and contemporary worship and Pastor Ross's sermons are always enlightening. Children's program is great and they have some great programs for high school aged kids. Overall a great experience at Calvary, some days I do miss them a lot.

Hot and Ready pizza for $5 is always a great deal! People at Little Caesars in Yorkville or very nice, always very pleasant. The pizza's are consistent and our kids love them! I have to take away one star because the pizza's aren't always ready, this is true especially Friday and Saturday nights. Now I understand it's because of the volume of pizza's being sold and that's why I take just one star. Other than that, great place to get a cheap pie!
