Good comparison of options for buying used and unlocked smartphones from ZDNet... +Swappa  gets first mention and highest recommendation:

You can save money and pick up some quality hardware if you know where to shop and what to avoid. Matthew Miller has the details.

A good friend noted that he's going to start lifting weights soon. So I dug up this old article that inspired me to start lifting the right way about 4 years ago:

http://www.mensjournal.com/article/print-view/everything-you-know-about-fitness-is-a-lie-20120504

Favorite quotes from the article:

"The bottom line is that not only can lifting weights do as much for your heart health as cardio workouts, but it also provides you with a lean-muscle coat of armor against life's inevitable blows..."

"It's about getting strong, durable, and relentless in simple, old-school ways that a man can train, test, and measure."

"Every serious strength-and-conditioning coach sticks to the basic barbell movements, because our bodies don't operate as single muscles – they operate as a whole."

"It's worth getting strong because we go to gyms in large part to maintain a little goddamned self-respect, and to blow off steam, and to insist, against all odds, that we do remain fiercely vital physical beings. And trust me, there's nothing like watching your dead lift skyrocket to make you feel vital." 

Fast forward to now, I recently hit a 1200 lb total for deadlift + squat + bench press at 175 lbs. I don't think I've ever exceeded an hour for a single workout and most of the time I was going just 3 times per week.

Compound lifts for strength... Read the whole article...

More than 30 million devices that would previously have failed Sprint's financial eligibility date (FED) check will now pass. If you tried to bring a device to Ting previously but failed due to FED, now's the time to try again!

Details in the latest update to our FED article on the Ting blog.
