Money. Let’s talk about it.
It’s something that we all need, to some extent, and something that a good portion of people want. Money is also something most of us wouldn’t mind having more of. And, at least on paper, it should be simple to get. Yet money seems to have a strange side to it, as it appears very few people have actually figured out how to make enough of it to be considered ‘wealthy’.
Would it surprise you if I said 8% of American adults are millionaires?
If you put 13 random American adults in a room, there’s…
When you think of your dream car, chances are, it probably wears a German badge. Even if you aspire to own a Bentley or even a Rolls Royce, both of those brands’ parent companies are German.
It’s hard to argue against the idea that brands such as Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Porsche continue to be leaders in the car industry, striking a great balance between luxury, technology, performance, and, of course, a little clout. Needless to say, I don’t think anyone would complain about the opportunity to own one of these cars.
But what could jeopardize the future and appeal…
Chances are, you wouldn’t be willing to delete every social media app on your phone. Whether it’s YouTube or Instagram, or TikTok, the reality is that we spend hours upon hours scrolling through them each week.
Some of us may realize there’s a problem, while others may not. Some may even think there’s something wrong with them or feel guilty about their inability to simply put down their devices and enjoy life outside of a screen.
But what if I told you that this is supposed to happen?
What if we lived in a world where every single tech company…
On February 14, General Motors revealed the two new variations of the Chevy Bolt. Apart from an exterior and interior refresh, the only thing that changed was the fact that there’s now a compact SUV (or EUV, as Chevy would call it) variant.
No, neither of these cars have the 3.1 seconds 0–60 times that the Tesla Model 3 Performance can boast. Nor can either of them achieve the 353-mile range you can expect from a Long-Range Model 3.
What these two cars can deliver on, however, is price.
“If I win the lottery, then I’ll be the happiest person alive.”
Sound familiar? If you said yes, which I assume you did, that would be because it’s a very common phrase. But it’s also just as common of a misunderstanding.
Whether you actually believe what the phrase is saying or not is a whole different matter, but the truth is that, no matter what the item is that you win or gain, it won’t be long before your enjoyment from life plateaus again or even worsens.
Once you undergo a drastic lifestyle change, such as winning the lottery, you’ll…
When you think of mobile games, what comes to mind?
Maybe Pokémon Go, Subway Surfers, Clash of Clans, or the recent hit Among Us? Well, that’s because they are some of the most successful and well-known mobile games to ever exist, and they all have one thing in common. Any guesses?
None of them required a single penny to start playing.
It would make sense that free games would probably have more downloads than pay-to-play games, but it doesn’t make sense that free games would end up making more money as well. …
Ever since 2011, with the introduction of the Galaxy S2, Samsung has been using their own in-house Exynos chips on various smartphone models.
While this wasn’t a problem back then, as in some cases the Exynos chip was actually faster than its Qualcomm counterpart, the difference between them has become vastly more noticeable today. And as the difference in performance grew, so did the complaints and overall problem.
But Samsung promised there would be improvements this time around, strongly promoting the idea that “Exynos is back”. …
Smart speakers and other voice-controlled technologies have made a big splash in recent years, and the effect on privacy with these speakers have been a large area of concern. In spite of this, some sort of smart device can be found in over 25% of American homes!
Considering that smart devices are going to be found in so many homes, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to look at how much privacy you’re actually losing.
But first, let’s see why everyone wanted to buy them in the first place.
It’s been almost a year since our school received the dreaded message that we would be closed until further notice. At the time, however, we naive students all cheered and praised the Lord that we could now sleep in, and do school entirely from the comfort of our bedroom.
Little did we know how different the reality would be.
Let me start by saying that I’ve undoubtedly been very fortunate in this scenario. First off, we’ve had an alternating schedule between online and in-person schooling. Secondly, my school was able to adapt quickly to provide a better online learning experience.
Reviews of a product, no matter what website it’s on, are what greatly dictates a buyer’s decision about whether to go through with the purchase or not. Sure, there will always be a hint of bias in any review, especially because they normally have to do with personal experience, but it was never all that common for there to be convincing fake reviews.
Unfortunately for us, all of that has changed.
