View Wikipedia Articles in Their Native Language for More Info

Wikipedia has a page for practically everything you could ever want to learn about, and usually the English page has what you need. However, you may find yourself on a page for a foreign location or topic that doesn't seem to say very much. The fix: try switching to the native language and translating the page with… » 4/03/14 6:19pm 4/03/14 6:19pm

Also important, sell at the right time! You should probably sell electronics ASAP, but text books you may want to wait until right before the start of the school year, then offer fast shipping. Also keep in mind, things bubble, i.e. now that the Samsung GS5 just came out, the GS4 price will go way down, but likely… » 2/27/14 2:41pm 2/27/14 2:41pm

Surviving High School: Requesting Your Input

While there are many posts and sites dedicated to helping college students with their studies, there are surprisingly fewer dedicated to high school. As a high school junior myself, I would like to change that as I progress through the rest of my high school career, and therefore I would like to hear from all the… » 9/10/13 4:17pm 9/10/13 4:17pm

trust me, keep the full size spare. all small ones will have major speed limitations (usually under 30 or 40 mph), and you basically have to go get it fixed right away. a full size will let you drive as long as you need to until you can the bad tire fixed. » 9/06/13 3:44pm 9/06/13 3:44pm

I did however drop and crack one without realizing it, so it was misfiring. then I had to take all 8 out again to… » 7/26/13 9:22pm 7/26/13 9:22pm

I don't get the buzz for chrome. I keep trying to use it on Android, but it always falls short of the stock/ CM/ AOKP browser. I Have a motto Atrix 2 at 1.2 GHz, so it is not a totally crappy phone, but no matter what rom I am on, the stock browser runs better. » 7/19/13 5:31pm 7/19/13 5:31pm

For storage of files, DB all the way, but these days, as a student, I do all my documents in Google Drive. I don't need them synced anywhere, as even if my internet went down, I could always get them on my phone if I had too. Drive presentations still need a lot of work to reach the power of PowerPoint (pun… » 7/02/13 3:01pm 7/02/13 3:01pm

If you want "fun" I feel handling is certainly more important. You can't drive 120 MPH in most places, so why do you need to? now a nice, small, "sporty" car generally is quick, due to light weight, and that enhances the experience. The ability to get some serious acceleration is nice, but high speed doesn't do much. » 6/23/13 1:56pm 6/23/13 1:56pm
