The advent of low-fee stock trading platforms like E-Trade brought a rush new money into the market. For better or worse, online self-service equity trading platforms opened up the stock market to droves of new investors. These services have only grown more accessible over time, with many such as TD Ameritrade and E-Trade advertising entry-level commissions of $10 per trade.
$10 per trade is a tremendous value compared to traditional services, but now there’s a newer service that offers an even better value for budding investors. More →
Back in the day, if a car reached 100,000 miles it was probably a reliable sign that it was time to trade it in and get a new vehicle. These days, the 100,000 mile threshold is much less of an issue thanks to numerous advances in engineering, automotive technologies and materials. In fact, these days it’s not unheard of to see cars with 200,000 miles still chugging along.
While that may hold true for gas-powered vehicles, a lot less is known about what happens when electric cars put on hundreds of thousands of miles. Of course, this is largely due to the fact that mass-market EVs are a relatively new phenomenon given that the Tesla Model S wasn’t even available until June of 2012.
One of the more interesting and controversial items to emerge from Apple’s special media event earlier this month was the introduction of a new pair of wireless headphones called AirPods. Sporting a futuristic design and impressive battery life, Apple’s AirPods have been praised as much as they have been ridiculed.
On the positive side, Apple’s AirPods are jam-packed with advanced technologies. On the other hand, many argue that the design of Apple’s AirPods is not user-friendly nor aesthetically pleasing.
The iPhone 7 is already a massive hit with consumers — even if it’s boring, and even if it lacks a headphone jack. However, some buyers aren’t happy about Apple’s decision to kill the headphone jack. There are fixes for it, including the adapter that Apple put in every iPhone 7 box. But there is still one audio jack issue that some iPhone 7 owners may complain about: There’s no easy way to charge the phone and use wired headphones at the same time.
If aesthetics don’t matter to you, then there is one solution to fix your iPhone 7 headphone hack problem, a new case that brings back the 3.5mm port back from the dead.
I’m old enough to remember a time when Google wasn’t the only search engine in town. You say, way back in the day, the search engine landscape was littered with a seemingly endless number of options, from Altavista to Webcrawler.
In the late 90s, Google came along and quickly implanted itself as the de-facto search engine. Thanks to its clever page-rank algorithm, Google managed to deliver more accurate and helpful search results than the competition. Google’s rise to search engine dominance was well-chronicled in Steven Levy’s In the Plex, but one of the more interesting aspects of Google’s ascension was its penetration of the mainstream vernacular. Google didn’t just change the way we used the web, it changed the way we talked. After a few years of dominance on the web, the word Google eventually morphed into a verb.

The world’s biggest companies rely on Big Data to make important business decisions. Thing is, the bigwigs don’t often know much about mass-scale database management. That’s why they pay premiums for Big Data pros to do all the heavy lifting for them.
Everyone has a cell phone these days, which means it’s reasonably easy to call of help in the event that you have car troubles that leave you stranded somewhere.

Apple, September 7th: “It takes courage to kill the headphone jack, but it’s fine, because you can just connect to everything with Bluetooth!” Uh, about that.
Numerous reports are coming in saying that the iPhone 7 has big problems connecting to in-car Bluetooth. Problems range from BMWs to Kias to my own Ford, and include audio cut-out or problems connecting. Given that I can’t use the aux-in cable and also charge my phone, this is a very real problem.
Are you sick of playing mobile games with touch controls? Would you rather plug an old Nintendo 64 controller into your phone than tap and swipe at the screen?
Well, I have good news and bad news.
The bad news is that you can’t just plug an N64 controller into your iPhone. The good news is that 8Bitdo is about to release a Bluetooth N64 controller that will wirelessly connect to your computer or mobile devices.
