The Comcast data cap that has been put in place within the last year is causing serious issues in my household. For the first time in forever (yes, I just quoted Frozen), I am forced to be conscious of my internet usage or else be forced to pay the price (literally). At $10 per extra 50gbs, it can add up fast. To make matters worse, it’s leading to disputes between my husband and I over who is entitled to watch Netflix. As well as conversations with my son and I over whether or not he can watch another Youtube video.
I’ve never bought an iPhone or iPad on release day. I’ve always been nervous or quite frankly, just didn’t have the cash.
But this year my little blog had earned the money to make the dream of owning an iPhone 5 on launch day a reality. At least, in theory.
I pre-ordered my iPhone 5 on September 14th. I eagerly awaited the 21st so that I could hold the aluminum and glass toy in my nerdy little hands.
Research says that upwards of 20% of car accidents are related to cell phone use. Roughly a million automobile accidents a year could be avoided if we eliminated the cellphone while driving. Studies also suggest that texting while driving can make a car crash 23 times more likely than those who are completely focused on driving.
Although there are many laws that prohibit texting while driving, many people ignore them and continue to text while driving despite the potential harm of themselves and others. This is similar to how many will still drink and drive even though it is both illegal and incredibly dangerous.
