AT&T Buys T-Mobile

AT&T just announced that it is buying T-Mobile for $39 million. AT&T is already ahead of T-Mobile on building LTE and T-Mobile is ahead of AT&T on building HSPA+ (an intermediate 4G technology that fits right in between the two carriers existing 3G networks and LTE. Together, they could have a powerful nationwide network.

The buyout of T-Mobile will cause less competition and will probably result in higher prices. Pretty much T-Mobile has been a very valuable leader because of the low prices they offer and some very innovative plans for consumers. However, these plans will probably go away and the combined carrier will normalize at AT&T's higher rates.

Have You Heard About Freecycle Yet?

Freecycle is the latest craze for consumers that enjoy websites such as Craigslist. Why? Because this online group, Freecycle, provides an interesting way to recycle no longer needed items for people and keeping it out of landfills. What a great way to contribute to making this a greener Earth!

The New Craze: Dukan Diet

We've all done it before.... Diet diet diet. It's so easy to fall off the wagon only to half-ass hop back on it again. There's numerous diets and diet supplements out there these days that just doesn't seem to work the right way. However, for future Princess Kate Middleton, the Dukan diet seems to be her latest craze before the big day arrives.

Pierre Dukan, a French Dr. has come out with a new dieting program called the Dukan diet, people say it's similar to the Atkin's diet. Just like any other diet or diet supplement the Dukan diet promises no added hunger, absolutely no calorie counting and instant weight loss. Well wouldn't that be nice if it were true? I don't think any of us would have dieting worries again!

The Dukan diet is that of a very high protein diet just like the Atkin's. This diet is said to be broken up into four different phases: First phase is eating plenty of non-fatty, high protein rich foods, lean cured meat, oat bran, with lots and lots of water. Can never get enough of that water when you're dieting. The second phase is when vegetables is introduced. During the third phase you are allowed to eat fruit, bread, cheese and even pasta (but only in moderation). Finally the fourth and last phase is eating anything you want for six days then having one strict day back to day one.

And that my friends is what the Dukan diet is!

Mega Millions Worth $201 Million

Are you ready to play the Mega Millions? Ready for a chance to win $201 million dollars? What would you do with all that money? I know a few things I'd do for sure! The winning numbers of the Mega Millions is worth over $201 million dollars.

The last drawing of the Mega Millions there was no winner, however, 18 people were lucky enough to match the first five numbers. $250,000? Not too shabby.

Since the February 1st drawing of $93 million, there have been no claims of winnings with the Mega Millions. There have been 12 drawings and no winners. This is why the jackpot continues to grow into such a HUGE amount!

The $201 Mega Millions jackpot is not the highest jackpot paid out though, back in 2006 some lucky people won $365 million in the Powerball. There was actually 8 people that shared the winning lotto ticket and they decided to take the upfront payment of $177 million, which I thought was a smart choice!
