Review: Quicken Mobile

Quicken was first released in 1983 and has been the most popular financial software package since, so it’s only fair that expectations for it are high. I’ve been using it since Windows 3.1, and have seen it grow and become easier to use over the years. I have to say that if it’s properly set-up... Continue Reading →

Cricket Wireless, a Smart Choice

It's been three weeks since I switched to Cricket Wireless and I'm happy with the service thus far. Having 4 gig of data was freeing, and I sucked it up willy-nilly.

A part of the reason for the sloppiness is that Goodreads does a lot more than keep a database of the books you've read. Goodreads allows people to push... Continue Reading →

More Than a Keyboard, it’s Gboard

The one app people use the most on their phones is probably the one they think about the least, the keyboard.
