Okay, I get that you can pair this watch with an iPhone, however, you can't get your messages or your emails on your phone without BT Notifier, which I believe is an Android only app, unless there is a developer willing to develop this for Apple.

I was told that this run was the steepest in all of Mountain Creek. Took me under 2:30 to complete it.

Tristen Tyler Blake and I rented Harleys and rode out to California. It rains one day a year in the Mojave Desert - the day that we decided to ride through it. It was cold, wet and rainy. When night time rolled around, you can add dark, slippery and dangerous.

We stopped by a Walmart to buy sauna suits to put over our riding clothes to stay dry - I haven't worn a sauna suit since my high school wrestling days - we looked like idiots on really expensive motorcycles! You don't know adventure until you are riding on a wet, cold, rainy, slippery, dark and dangerous road at 110 miles per hour!

In the words of Tristen, "This is perhaps the most unpleasant time I've ever had." In any event, it was an honor and my pleasure to spend Tristen's most unpleasant time with him.

Memories to talk about for years to come...that's what these times are made of. Try minus 20 Celsius in the back country cross-country skiing and ripping a tendon off a thumb. A bit numb, and pinches that remind once in awhile..but it was a blast with my friends anyway! You go Al!

I'm in agreement with LarryDv1d.  Consumer Reports sometimes doesn't get it quite right.  Rather than applying force directly to the center of the phone, they should have done it about 1/3 from the top.  This is because the battery in the center is preventing the apple phone from bending.  If you look at most users bent iPhones it is almost never in the center.

CrazyRussinaHacker:  I love your videos and your accent!  You're friggin' hilarious, dude!  One comment I can make in your boiling Coke experiement - is that you should have put the residue in a measuring cup to see how much sugar and crap came from 1 liter of coke!

Thanks and keep up the great work!

I am relatively new to vaping. I recently bought my first drip tip. I went into Clouds to look for new local flavors. The guy who helped me was a guy named Miguel. He took one look at my drip tip and saw that I needed new coils and cotton. He immediately went to work replacing my coils and cotton, without me even asking. He used very high quality wire and cotton. I think he sensed that I was new to vaping because while he was building it, he was telling (teaching) me what he was doing and why. He showed me an example of a new build and I was amazed that I was even vaping on my nasty black coils and cotton. After he was done, I gave the new tip a try, and was really impressed at how good the build was. Expertly done - it took a while for the coils to heat up, but the vapor production was so much better than the original build that the store I bought this tip at put on. To add icing on the cake, Miguel said that the build was free! I ended up buying 90 oz of fluid from Clouds to show my appreciation to Miguel and this store. He showed me flavors that were to my liking and even indicated which to avoid because the high sweetener content would kill my coils. I am so glad that I walked into this vape shop and they have earned a customer for life. An additional benefit is that it is right next door to a Peruvian deli and my wife is from Lima!

I was in Vegas for a convention and wanted to escape the city. Enter Escape Eagle. First off, kudos to Steve the mechanic. He was so friendly and answered all of our stupid questions about riding in the West. He and owner Steve were so accomodating. Although they had a key drop box, he told us to call 30 mins prior to returning the bikes and he or Steve would be at the shop to check us out - we planned to return the bikes at 8PM on Sunday night, but didn't actually get to the shop until closer to 9PM (they close at 5PM on Sunday). Bikes were in great shape. I rented a Fatboy and my buddy rented a Softtail. They also have a nice selection of helmets and gloves. The open face helmet I selected also had a gopro mount on it! Although I've been riding for 20 years, this was the first time riding a Harley. Selection is good if you like Harleys and Hondas. Sport bike and dual sport lovers need not apply.

I just had my Samsung Galaxy s3 screen repaired by Jimmy. If you have a cracked screen and want it fixed but don't know where to go, look no further. Jimmy is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about all thing phones, and from here on in, I won't go anywhere else to repair my phones. From just a glance at my phone he immediately knew that my screen had been repaired in the past. You see, the last time I got my screen replaced, I brought it to these supposed "phone experts" in Chinatown. When they replaced my screen, they didn't put in LOCA (Liquid Optically Clear Adhesive). Before meeting Jimmy, I didn't even know that there was a layer of this Sticky heat sensitive gel in between the glass and the digitizer. Jimmy explained that this is why my screen isn't responsive all of the time and I need to power off and on my phone frequently. After the repair my phone is AS GOOD AS NEW. It is responsive like it was when I first got it, and is brighter and best of all, the LOCA gel filled in the scratches of the digitizer so my screen looks sharp. Thanks Lazy Bee! You'll see me again after my next phone disaster! Not the cheapest, but definitely done the best!

SUPER PERSONABLE I got my haircut from Dave, Mike's son. First of all, Dave is super personable. In addition to being well-educated, he speaks five languages! He has been cutting hair since his dad taught him when he was in high school so has a LOT of experience. The shop has been recently renovated but is small (I think four or five chairs), but what they lack in size, they make up in service. I went on a Sunday, and there were three people in front of me and only Dave cutting hair. Worth the wait? Yep. Great service? Yep. Great haircut? Yep. $12 bucks for a haircut? Yep. Would I go back? Yep. Recommend? Yep.

I have a 2005 Smart Car, and have had a starter issue that I've had since I bought the car last year. I have brought it to the Mercedes Dealership in Manhattan who are a bunch of incompetent boobs. I've also tried a shop in Brooklyn recommended by a Smart Car enthusiast, who had the same problem as mine. After a quick look, however, the problem wasn't the same, and the mechanic opted to return the car to me rather than try to troubleshoot the problem. So about two weeks ago about two blocks away from Haji's, my car broke down and finally wouldn't start after getting the oil changed and the car washed. Haji came right over and took a look at the car. After determining that he'd need to look under the car, and bring the car to his shop, he offered to push the car to his shop. It is a short two blocks, but is near Northern Blvd, a busy road, and the fact that he'd want to help me push it to save me the tow charge is an indication of the kind of man I was dealing with. After doing extensive diagnostics, Haji determined that my starter motor was bad, and I would need a replacement. He told me the price he was getting and let me find my own starter motor, which I found on the internet. He replaced the starter motor, that I bought, and in order to install the motor, he had to remove the engine, and several components - damn these Smart cars! After a week, Haji got my car running better than new. Haji and his brother Muhammed will not nickel and dime you, and will not charge you for things that he can easily troubleshoot for you. He is an honorable man, and is now my go-to mechanic. I've decided to have Haji do all diagnostics and evaluations of my car from here on in. In fact, I have decided to stop by every six months to have Haji look at my fluids and to replace anything that needs fixing. A five-star experience for a five star mechanic.

I am an attorney cum serial entrepreneur. Every time I start a company, I start off with a Sunshine Suites cubicle. The space is so modern, that sometimes I feel like I'm in a trendy NYC club. Although the rates are super competitive and the space is lovely, the best thing about Sunshine is the community. They have bi-weekly networking events, and everytime I walk down the halls, I get more business than I can handle. If you are currently working from home and think you are saving money, you are really losing opportunities. When was the last time you got new business while walking from your bedroom to your kitchen? As for the naysayer who gave Sunshine Suites zero stars, I'm so sorry that you had a terrible experience. I am one of Sunshine's oldest tenants (if not the oldest) who started out in their original space in the Flatiron building. This company has since grown to three spaces (Noho, Tribecca and the Bronx). I can honestly say that in my ten years as a tenant, that I have never seen a cockaroach or a waterbug. I can say that the sales staff is overloaded showing the space to new potential tenants.
