more iPhone6 jibber jabber
 
+Chris Cox brings us more iPhone 6 leaks, peeks and deals
It’s been a strange odds-and-ends sort of week for iPhone news. We’re still dealing with the possibility of Apple jacking up the price of the iPhone 6, alleged pictures of the iPhone 6 faceplate have surfaced (as well as the iPad Air), and now RadioShack has dropped a sweet deal in our laps, especially if you’re still holding onto an iPhone 4s.

Special Thanks to +Ken Hess
Ken has found the Chromebook an excellent desktop replacement

As many of you know +Practical Chrome had Ken, +ZDNet contributing author, on the show a few months ago.  At that time Ken was just wrapping up a month long Chromebook only challenge, minus work.  As a consumer and IT professional he was really impressed with how secure and easy the device was to use.  He had a great many more things to say in subsequent articles.  We would honestly say that he has become a minor Evangelist... like a minor Prophet??

We were honored to have him on the show and I wanted to share the quick list of Ken's articles on +ZDNet, that are well written in regard to substance, accuracy, but also a friendly fun read when it comes to Chrome OS.  These articles are the type that you can share with anyone, Mom, Dad, brother, sister, Grandma and Grandpa.  He successfully tells the tale of how easy and low maintenance Chromebooks are and why even as a professional he recommends them above others.

Excellent work Ken.  Please share everyone.

+Ian Barnes I don't mess with my windows machine, I typed in the wrong password and it punished me by processing for almost 30 seconds to tell me it was the wrong password.  You do ANYTHING unexpected to MS stuff and it screams "HA!  THE NEXT FEW MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE IS MINE!!!" I can't wait for my Chromebook to arrive.

Staff is great and knowledgable. Gave me a bunch of free practice tips for my arrows since I had just bought a brand new bow (which they gave me a great price on) when I later accidentally dry-fired my bow (arrow slipped off the string) they re-stringed my bow for me. Love this place!
