Is it December already? That can mean only one thing: a non-stop stream of “Best of 2014″ lists. Oh, come on, you know you love ’em.I certainly do. This is my favorite time of year, and not just because I get a few days off. As a full-time tech junkie, it’s always fun to look back at the last 12 months to see what new products have invaded our lives and, hopefully, made them better.And, brother, I’ve seen a lot of new products this year. Speakers large and small, smartphones
Is it Black Friday already? Let’s see, no, the calendar says Tuesday. So why the heck am I discovering so many amazing deals on gadgets and gear?Don’t know, don’t care. The reality is you’re about to save big on everything from laptops to tablets to smartwatches, and maybe get a serious chunk of your holiday shopping done early. I’ve rounded up five items that would make killer gifts — though don’t feel like you shouldn’t snag some of them for yourself,
When we last left off, Aaron’s had just offered a loan to a person who had explicitly detailed his problems with debt, lack of money, and lack of interest in paying for things. All through Grant’s phone call, phone operators were friendly and accommodating of the cheerful deadbeat offering to sign an Aaron’s contract. “But they were friendly! How bad could they be, Savings? Why the campaign of negativity?” Because, reader, it is never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever,
Recently, we’ve been getting our collective rocks off making fun of Aaron’s new “Max Your Tax!” ad campaign to bring in customers looking for ways to unwisely spend their tax refunds. As it turns out, companies like Aaron’s and Rent-a-Center are in the Rent-To-Own industry, a service the government characterizes as a service of predatory lenders.The way their business model works is they market themselves to low-income people with credit problems, let you walk out of
Last Wednesday, July 15th Amazon celebrated its first annual Prime Day, proving that if you're enough of a commercial juggernaut you can make up your own holiday, just like Valentine's Day or Trump Morrow Eve. Expectations ran high, with Amazon promising more deals than Black Friday. So how'd it turn out? Depends who you talk to.Amazon claimed their sales vastly exceeded Black Friday 2014, with 34.4 million items ordered in Prime-eligible countries and a record 398 items ordered
If your HDTV is anything like mine, it doesn't sound very good.
Ironic, isn't it? The latest LCD and plasma panels dazzle the eyes
with their gorgeous colors and razor-sharp images, but disappoint
the ears with weak, muffled, bass-less audio. Blame their designs:
today's super-thin TVs just don't have room for much in the way of
speakers. That's why I highly recommend adding some kind of
external speaker system. Whether you spend $50 or $500, you'll
vastly improve the quality of the sound you're hearing. For
example, suppose you purchased a smallish TV for your den or
bedroom. It probably has small, down- or rear-facing speakers that
sound atrocious. Got an old set of PC speakers lying around? Plug
them into the TV's headphone jack and you should enjoy much louder,
clearer, fuller sound. Failing that, look for a mini-soundbar, the
kind designed to clip on top of a laptop's screen. These work just
as well with small HDTVs.
