    by Ryan McLaughlin ~ October 20th, 2013

    Portable Bluetooth speakers are dime a dozen, but if you have the right one it can be used with a mobile device to boost its audio so that it is more enjoyable and can be shared with others.

    Review: Straight Talk T-Mobile vs AT&T

    I recently bought a LG Nexus 4 and because it is unlocked I wanted to use it on a prepaid phone plan. I had previously been using PagePlus, but because this is not a Verizon phone they do not support it. So I had to find a new carrier. After considering my options I went with Straight Talk because they have unlimited data and talk for just $45 a month. However Straight talk uses either T-Mobile or AT&T and I had to choose one before I could use it
