An Affordable and Full-Featured Smartphone

Yesterday, T-Mobile added a new entry-level smartphone in T-Mobile’s arsenal: the LG Optimus L90. People new to the smartphone market (of which there seem to be fewer and fewer) might just find the L90 to be the phone that brings them to the other side. Not just because it offers a number of cool and attractive features, but also because T-Mobile has, as of late, made real inroads into the wireless marketplace.

The company’s 4G LTE network now covers 96 percent of all Americans, more than any other provider, and they continue to offer unique offers, such as reimbursing new customers for any early termination fees they incur.

Three tablets in particular saw their sales climb: the Google Nexus 7, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the Barnes & Noble Nook HD.

The combination of both of those events lead Apple to launch their own 7-inch tablet: The Apple iPad mini. So how does it compare to those competitors mention above? Our review:

Face Wash Is Now an Appcessory
spot cool stuff TECH

Spot Cool Stuff wakes up cranky. We are not morning people. This is why we depend upon caffeine. And why we are fans of Chief’s Energizing Face Wash for men. Dabbing it onto your skin, then splashing water onto your face, it’s hard to not feel like you’re in a York Peppermint Patty commercial. Indeed, there’s a fair amount of peppermint in Chief’s Face Wash. There’s eucalyptus too. And ginseng and menthol and a hint of rosemary. Altogether, it wallops you with a refreshing minty morning pick-me-up.

So what’s a review of a face wash doing on a technology blog?
