Life: Apple iPhone 6 Leather Case (Black)

My new iPhone 6 case arrived a day before my actual iPhone. Here are three shots of the actual case compared to my iPhone 5 size. The iPhone 6 appears to not be much bigger than my iPhone 5, which is why I went with the iPhone 6 versus the iPhone 6 plus. The iPhone 6 also looks based on the case to fit my hand better. If I had my way I would rather have a smaller sized iPhone.

Technology:  T-Mobile WiFi Calling

Update: Looks like WiFi calling on T-Mobile will not be supported on the iPhone 5 after I received clarification from @TMobileHelp @TMobileUSA confirmed to me via Twitter that WiFi calling will be available on the iPhone 5, 5c, 5S, 6 and 6 Plus once iOS 8 becomes available. @TheRealJTRay The iPhone 5s and 5c will also support Wi-Fi Calling with the launch of iOS 8 *RD — T-Mobile USA (@TMobileHelp) September 12, 2014 I currently don’t see that feature available on my iPhone 5 running iOS 8 Gold Master, so I am still skeptical.

Life: iPhone 6 Pre-Order Meltdown

Life: iPhone 6 Pre-Order Meltdown

Let me first state that I live a privileged life compared to most of the world and not being able to order a $1,000 product from a $2,000 product via $50 a month Internet access is really unimportant, however here I am. It was 1:01am and I hit the refresh screen on the famous Apple Online Store screen, “We’ll Be Back Soon” and the Apple Online Store was still not back. I was also prepared to order my iPhone 6 via my cellular provider T-Mobile and hit refresh on their store and nothing. Then I was reminded of my 9 plus hour per-ordering process for my iPhone 4S in 2011 and I began to question why I was up in the wee hours of the morning forgoing much needed sleep for a phone that I will eventually own. The problem … Read more…

Life: My Weight Loss Attitude

Life: My Weight Loss Attitude

It’s been nearly 18 months since I made the healthy decision to lose weight. I am down nearly 60 pounds and have been able to stay within five to ten pounds of my goal weight since reaching it back in July 2013. By no means am I a health expert, but as I am often asked “how I did it” I thought I would provide insight into my weight loss attitude. Motivation The first thing is losing weight is about being healthy so you have to find what motivates you to get healthy. For me it was about beating diabetes and not letting it control my life.  Fighting it will be a lifetime war.  Right now I am winning the battles and plan to win a majority of them while I am alive. For other people I think the motivation … Read more…

Life: MoviePass

What is MoviePass? MoviePass is a subscription service that allows subscribers to see a movie every 24 hours for a monthly fee. I subscribed for one full year and I saw 67 movies. My monthly subscription price was $35 a month, but I was able to get the first month at the introductory price of $20. I spent a total of $405 or $6.05 a showing. How does it work? MoviePass subscription works similar to a Gym membership. After the 30-day contract free introductory period, customers agree an annual contract, that if terminated before the end of the 12-month period an early cancellation fee is charged. Monthly payments are auto debited from the customer’s account set up with MoviePass. A MoviePass Credit Card backed by Discover is provided. The card is only usable when activated via the MoviePass App on … Read more…
