Storm Area 51 came and went with much ado about nothing on Friday, September 20, 2019. Only ~150 people went the Area 51 East Gate, ~75 people approached the gate, 3 were arrested for indecent exposure, a man arrested for peeing on the fence and a woman arrested for ducking under the gate. The cancelled AlienStock music festival at Rachel, Nevada, had ~2,000 people show up. That was the “best case” scenario for a crowd size that local authorities could handle.
Last week Apple announced the new iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max, and reduced prices on the older iPhone 8 and iPhone XR. Like many people this time of year, you might be planning to get or have already upgraded to a new iPhone. Your new iPhone will need new accessories to go with it, and that can get downright expensive.
When I got my iPhone 6s in 2015, I spent $80 USD on a clear case and screen protectors. When I got my iPhone XR last week, I could have spent another $80 USD on the exact same accessories. This time I went shopping on Amazon to find some great deals. While several of the accessories that I mention are specific to the iPhone XR, you can find similar accessories for other iPhone models at the same price or a few dollars more.Read more “4 MUST HAVE iPhone 8/XR/11 Accessories For $50”
On the same day that Apple announced the new iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max, I went to my local Apple Store to trade in my four-year-old iPhone 6s for last year’s iPhone XR. You may recall that I posted a video last October that I wasn’t pre-ordering the iPhone XR to upgrade my iPhone 6s. Sprint wasn’t offering any great deals. Not then, not now. My choices were pre-ordering the iPhone XR for $750 USD or keeping my iPhone 6s for another year. Fast forward a year later… Why did I trade in my iPhone 6s for the iPhone XR and not the newer iPhone 11?Read more “Why I Didn’t Pre-Order iPhone 11 to Upgrade iPhone 6s”

A friend noticed a headline that the Fry’s Electronic store in Palo Alto, CA, was closing at the end of 2019. We drove over to the Fry’s Electronics in Campbell, CA, to check out the store. Something we haven’t done in years since Best Buy, Amazon and Newegg has everything we needed. We found and empty parking lot, under stock or empty shelves, and very few sales people who interested in helping anyone. If Fry’s Electronics does go out of business, it will be the end of an era.
