It’s time for a holiday weekend comments thread!

Sit back, relax and chat about stuff because it’s the weekend!

Another week is in the can, and we have a three day weekend to quietly reflect and rest so we’re ready for Tuesday to come. Just kidding. Weekends are for fun!

Back your phone data up and charge it at same time with a MEEM Cable

Charging a smartphone is something nearly all of us do on a nearly daily basis. Some of us can get a few days between power-up, but we all eventually have to juice up on a semi-regular basis. How often, though, are you backing up your files? Surely you don’t rely on only one copy of all […]
