Happy Friday to everyone out there. The weekend is here, let's all just enjoy
it safely and don't do anything that might end up on the news. Most of Chicago
is getting ready for this weekend's big football game involving the Chicago
Bears versus the Seattle Seahawks. You know what side I'm going with. GO BEARS!

iPhone has arrived for Verizon - As we all expected for some time word was made
official this past Tuesday when Verizon made the announcement that they were
obtaining the iPhone 4. Many people are rejoicing because there is a new option
if you want to purchase the iPhone 4. But like anything you purchase there are
pro's and con's for the product. First if you are familiar with the iPhone 4 with
AT&T. You know that you can multi-task on the phone but with the new Verizon
iPhone you won't be able to do that. In a area where the Verizon phone does
get some points in favor is that you can make your iPhone 4 into a personal hot
spot. What does that mean? Well you can use the phone as a wi-fi connection
for 5 devices. And Verizon will launch the phone on February 10.
The death of Myspace is near - We all have at one point during this social
networking craze used Myspace. It was at one point a competitor for Facebook. But
as times have changed more people flocked to Facebook and Twitter. And Myspace
has been left behind. I have to admit that I had a Myspace page but as times
went by I enjoyed Facebook more and more and just left Myspace behind. One of the
reasons might be that Myspace was just a avenue for most start up bands to launch
their music and many people didn't enjoy that. And as a result of losing members
and falling behind the social network giants. They will be laying off almost
half of their staff. Which is a sad story. But it was kind of expected. So long
