Sleeping with your phone again?
Remember those old alarm clocks that played the soothing sounds of the beach, with rolling waves and seagull sounds that were supposed to help you sleep? Well, by now, those clocks are probably off our nightstands and smartphones are our new nighttime pacifiers…so leave it to genius App creators to concoct 10 new apps that help you fall asleep and stay asleep!


On the Bend
What’s this week’s newest wrinkle with the iPhone6? It bends! This is actually not a good thing folks. Apple has told consumers it might not be a good idea to keep this phone in their jeans (especially tight ones) for an extended period or they risk damaging their new phone. Huh? They suggest a case as a quick fix…really? So this is the quality of work Apple puts out now that Steve Jobs is no longer at the helm. I’m sure he would not be happy.
