iClever 6-Port Fast USB Desktop Charger Review

One of the downsides of being a tech nerd is keeping all those devices charged up. Until a few months ago, I maintained a collection of power strips and USB wall adapters, which I had setup in a few places – my bedside table, my office at work, and a…

You laughed when I told you that "Next" and all those payment plans were still a ripoff. You laughed when I told you prepaid is the way to go these days. You laughed when I told you it's actually MUCH cheaper to just buy your phone outright. Keep laughing while you get nickel-and-dimed by the deathstar.

Nope. 
If you spend your commute tied to your earbuds listening to podcasts, you probably do it on an iPhone.

While not juggling nearly the same schedules as they are, my wife and I use Google Calendar, as well. 

Whenever either of us agrees to do something, be somewhere, etc, we put it on our own calendar and "invite" the other to it. This applies to everything - family get-togethers, social outings, kids birthday parties, etc. If one of us needs to be there, it's on the calendar. 

Our general rule is "if it's not on the calendar, it's not happening".

Dishonored was actually a really fun game, but I'm not sure I'd want to pay to replay it.

This is genius. That mount costs Toyota less than a buck to install and have ready, and they've just positioned the Tacoma as THE truck to drive if you're the type to roll with a GoPro. 

Doesn't matter that you could add this to any vehicle yourself for <$20. Preinstalled gets the buzz.
A new deal between Toyota and GoPro is putting one of the action camera's mounts into every 2016 Tacoma; a first for carmakers, according to Wired. Whether you plan to go muddin' or just haul a ton...

As per usual, this is really tempting. Basically the same price as a 2-line setup with StraightTalk, but with 10GB per line instead of 5GB. 

As per usual, the only downside is that you're stuck on the T-Mobile network. If you don't leave the city, this is probably fine. But if you venture out pretty much at all, not so nice.

Did +Google remove the "highlights" feature from +Google Photos? I just loaded around 400 photos to an album and it's showing ALL of them. They weren't all that good, lol.

You may think this is silly, but I would absolutely decline a job if they required me to wear a suit every day.
