It’s been far too long since we had our last Resellerratings.com contest and it’s about time it was revived! So this month’s winner is MamaSon11, who purchased a Samsung Rogue Refurbished cell phone from us back in November. Take a look at what she said about TheBlueDot.net after the break!
I know, I know, I have been writing about SmartGlass quite often the past couple months, but this will probably be the last one (That is a lie). Android devices managed to score Microsoft’s SmartGlass app on the day of Windows 8 release, most of them anyway, and now it’s Apple’s turn! Microsofts SmartGlass is now available to iOS Devices, which include iPads and iPhones.
The past few days we have seen the largest storm in Atlantic history rip the East coast apart. Boardwalks, bridges, jobs and homes all lost in a matter of hours due, in most part, to water surges never seen before. My home town, just a few miles away from Seaside heights, was ravaged with flooding and destroyed power lines. Some folks are still without power, and may continue to be without for a week, if not more. Here in Philadelphia, we experiences mild flooding and a few downed trees, but managed to scrape by without much damage. Nothing like we see on the shore. So how can you help the victims of Sandy?

Ok, so maybe the Higgs Boson, something theorized in physics for a VERY long time, has a very weak connection to cellphones or electronics. But darn it! It’s so cool! If you don’t know what the Higgs Boson is and why it is important to everything physics, I’ll explain simply. The Higgs Boson is something that gives everything that has mass, mass. Something like a photon, that comes from the sun and can sometimes be a wave and sometimes be a particle, doesn’t have mass. But most particles have mass, we just didn’t know how. But thanks to CERN we may have finally found the Higgs Boson, which was theorized to exist because… We exist, and this planet exists, and mass exists. Everything that holds us all together is attached to the theory that the Higgs Boson is real.
