I "might" be in the market for my first smartphone.  I know, I know, I hear it all the time, I'm an IT guy and I don't have a smartphone.  I have just never really needed one.  I don't travel that much and I have never been able to justify the added expense.

Anyway, there's a deal with my carrier, Verizon, where my monthly bill will only go up a minor amount, like $4/month and I can get into a smartphone.  My choices are the iPhone 5c and the Droid MAXX.  These are my only two choices because it fits into a 2 year contract.  I've been with Verizon for about 15 years so I've always just stayed in contract and taken the phone that I can get within the contract.

So, long story short, way too late for that now, which is the better phone to go with?  iPhone 5c or Droid Maxx?  I know there are lot of "it depends" type of factors, I'm just looking for a high level, first impression type of feedback.

Thanks +Fred Kaffenberger ; update:  Verizon was able to lower my bill by $20/month and getting a smartphone nixes this so once again I cannot justify the expense.  Sticking with a basic phone. :)

Is there a way to have a task list or a to-do list in Mac Calendar?  I'm on Yosemite. #apple   #mac

Bundle up!
Two arctic blasts of air are slated to hit Michigan this week. The air could be cold enough to break some record low temperatures for this time in February.

Question for my G+ friends: is there an Android app that turns your phone into a step counter, a good one? #Android #stepcountchallenge

Google fit does it and it is pretty good. It's stock on a lot of newer Android devices.

I've been watching Gary ever since I got my MacBook Pro back late 2011.  I love his short instructional videos, usually around 5 minutes, and his site has many, many more.  It's a great resource for new Mac users and experienced users as well.

Is there a tool that allows you to highlight and mark-up a web page?  What I want to do is highlight and make notes while I read an article and be able to reference these notes later.  Does such a tool exist?
