New Netflix subscribers could soon be forced to pay a bit more for the company’s streaming service: The company announced in its first-quarter earnings letter to shareholders that it intends to raise the prices for new members by $1 or $2 this quarter.
Summer is one of my favorite times, barbecues and outdoor parties are happening all over and the wind fills the air with the smell of burning charcoal and mesquite wood. It rings in the season better than the heat or the sound of ice cream trucks. Unfortunately I do not have the type of backyard to put a outdoor grilling island but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love to have one. Having a dedicated grilling station instead of a wobbly outdoor table makes the experience somehow more formal and permanent. For grilling enthusiasts, it is essential.
Family life has become more and more hectic through the years, where more and more both parents need to work (as apposed to years back when the mother was a ‘stay at home mom’). I know for me and my family we are always on the run going to a basketball game or a dance rehearsal or a party, we are rarely home. I am a big fan of technology in the home and being able to automate or control things from a remote location. More and more you have seen where with your smartphone you can do just that, in fact this is just the beginning. From setting a DVR recording, to setting the temperature in your home, to arming or unarming your home alarm, we are able to do so much more while on the go. Whether you are home or away you can control your humble abode.

It’s that time of year again! That time of year to gather up the kiddos and get their picture taken with a guy or girl in an Easter bunny costume. Don’t be frightened, don’t be scared. There is an actual person in that costume sometimes. But sometimes, just sometimes the costumes that these people wear can be so scary looking. It’s like some cruel joke that they decided to wear this costume that frightens the living shit out of people sometimes.
