It's Impossible to "Gift" a Netflix Subscription

Submitted by on Wednesday, September 3rd at 8:31am
This past father’s day I purchased my Dad an Apple TV.  He’s been using it regularly, much to my surprise.  When his birthday rolled around a few weeks ago I thought a Netflix subscription would be the perfect gift.  Since he now has the Apple TV and he was using an iPad already as well, having Continue Reading

Thinking Different with an Apple Airport Extreme

Submitted by on Monday, September 1st at 9:00am
  In my day job I work at one of the country’s leading Apple Specialists. The other day a father and three kids came into my store, each child gripping an iPad.

I’m currently enjoying a lovely end of summer vacation with my family in Maine.  We got up here from Philadelphia thanks to a short U.S. Air flight and then rented a car for the hour and half drive north to my mother’s place.  As we we’re leaving the Portland Airport we happen to notice that Continue Reading

As you can imagine I change up the case on my iPhone 5s often.  Even when I’m not testing out a case for review I hardly go more than a few days with the same case.  For that reason I thought I start a new random segment here on Run Around Tech called “What Case Continue Reading

Submitted by on Sunday, April 6th at 10:00am
I’m faced with a dilemma.  I imagine it’s the same dilemma many people are facing right now.  I have to make a choice.  It’s not an easy decision by any means. HTC ONE M8 or Samsung Galaxy S5.

Submitted by on Monday, March 31st at 11:12am
The selfie. I’ll admit them. I take them all the time. You know who else does as well? My three kids. Last week I picked up the Hisy after hearing about it on the XM Radio “My Geek Time” show. What’s the Hisy you ask? Simple. It’s a giant button, that connects to your phone Continue Reading
