Even though it’s the middle of September, the weather has been great here in Southern California. It’s actually been almost too hot, with temperatures close to 100 degrees last week. When I played golf the other day it was 95 degrees out, way too hot; plus I don’t like to sweat when I’m playing golf. I figured the heat would let up this week though, since I finally broke down and got my A/C tuned up last weekend for $245. Since then, the temperature has steadily been decreasing, figures.
I’m still trying to decide if it’s worth it to get the iPhone 5 or not. I was pretty disappointed with what they unveiled. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I was hoping there would be some new feature that would wow me. At $200 plus $50 in taxes(what the heck’s up with that?) plus a 2 year contract, I’m not sure if it’s worth it. I have my jailbroken iPhone 4 so my phone already has a lot of the features that the new iPhone 5 has. Did anyone else notice that most of the new iPhone 5 features were solely software updates and not hardware? I’m thinking about switching to a Samsung S3, so I’d love to hear anyone’s opinion on the matter.
Work hasn’t been too busy this summer so I’ve had plenty of time to work on the blog and develop some relationships with other bloggers. And speaking of iPhones, I even had time to submit a guest post on Modest Money: How My Credit Card’s Purchase Protection Plan Saved My iPhone 4. Check it out!
I’ve read some really great articles over the past couple weeks too so I thought I’d share a few:
