  • The best thing I like about my IPhone 5C is the cool bright green color. With the see through polka-dot blue case it is a real looker and really stands out in the world of plain not very attractive metal phones. It looks like the new IPhone will just be available in the not very attractive metal colors like silver, gray, gold. Are there plans to make it available in multi-colors like the 5C or do I need to wait until the IPhone 7 comes out? It seems obvious that you would make it in more colors to appeal to more people. I mean how hard is it to have different colors? Until then I will keep my shiny green IPhone 5C which IMHO is the best looking IPhone to date.

  • I noticed I hardly ever use my IPhone 5C to actually call or talk to someone on the phone. Here are my top 5 uses recently in terms of time spent. #1) Addictive Games (Clash of Clans/Boom Beach/Minion Rush) especially the first two, I mean anyone who has played Clash of Clans or Boom Beach knows how addictive these are. #2) Texting #3) Web Searching/surfing (Google/Yahoo) #4) Social Networking (Twitter/FourSquare/Swarm) #5) A toss up between Camera/Calculator/Weather I Phone features.

  • This company is hard to figure out. First years ago they sold off Smokey Bones, which at the time was their chain that I visited the most (not anymore since I cut down on beef/pork). Now that I am eating more fish and it seems like others are too, what to do they do but get rid of Red Lobster which is probably the most recognizable seafood chains, yet keep Longhorn (a steakhouse). With more and more people eating seafood nowadays (and eating less beef) this is a head scratcher. Especially when you consider the steakhouse market is much more competitive and has much more competition than the seafood market. I simply think they needed to modernize the chain and make it a bit more appealing to the 20-30 something crowd by adding more seafood options that appeal more to a younger crowd like sushi, fish tacos, etc. I think a seafood chain like Red Lobster has more potential than a carb heavy pasta place nowadays, I mean who really orders spaghetti at a restaurant anymore? The investors who got the Red Lobster chain got a super bargain. They can keep the existing cash cow locations, close the locations not doing so well, and expand on the chain, maybe making smaller hipper locations that serve sushi, more high-end locations or, branch out into the fast casual like Panera or Chipotle type stores, lots of options...

    I can't be the only one who is not surprised by FB stock going down. Years ago I was on Facebook multiple hours daily, then I got to the point where I looked at my Facebook a few times a week, then once a week, now about only once or twice a month. Others I know use it less often as well. So was surprised the stock kept going up and up. Eventually something had to give. I for one am so bored with social media sites like Facebook so others must be as well. When they came out they were cool, but after a few years of using them I am pretty much over them. I mean I use Foursquare and Twitter weekly a bit more but only for a few minutes at a time like when I am waiting for my morning coffee at Dunkin Donuts. I would rather play Clash of Clans on my IPhone than read some junk someone posted to FaceBook. IMHO social media sites have jumped the shark, I am looking forward to the next big thing....
