Fashion is totally subjective. You either love new trends and bold styles or you don’t. Because it’s spring the new trends are coming out in full force. Sometimes what is in style tends to be questionable to the average person. We recently wrote an article on the “Clear Knee Mom Jeans” and the reviews were brutal. Fashion is constantly changing, and change isn’t always a good thing.

Do you ever think “I can do that!” and make your style look effortless? Whatever you do, think about your style choices so that when you look back you don’t think, “Why did … Read more

If you shopped online at GameStop between September 2016 and the first week of February 2017, you might want to keep an eye on your credit card. The struggling games and electronics retailer has apparently been hit by a hacking attack that might have compromised thousands of customers’ credit card data, possibly including CVV2 codes. Security news blog KrebsOnSecurity looked into the issue and broke the news last Friday.

Hhgregg has failed to find a buyer and will be liquidating all 220 stores. You may have already noticed if you have a local hhgregg, as the liquidation sales began this past weekend. Approximately 5,000 layoffs will occur over this liquidation, and the closings will be completed by the end of May. Their website has not been altered to reflect this, still advertising their Spring Dining Event sale, but we have reports that in-store liquidation prices are only up to 30% off. This liquidation marks the end … Read more

Instead of releasing more Windows phones, Microsoft is getting their own version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. The devices will come preloaded with the usual apps like Skype, OneDrive, Office, but the Microsoft editions specifically will come with a new bundle of Microsoft-flavored apps. It is currently available for preorder at Microsoft’s US retail stores (yes, you have to go in to order) and will be released April 21.

Claiming a lack of profitability After its landmark purchase of Souq.com, the Middle East’s largest e-commerce site, this week Amazon has chosen to close down Quidsi, parent company of Diapers.com and Soap.com, because it has failed to reach profitability since Amazon acquired the company in 2010. Quidsi, founded by Jet.com CEO Marc Lore, was a $500 million purchase for Amazon, and its closing will cost 263 people their jobs.

There are six sites on the chopping block: Diapers.com, Soap.com, BeautyBar.com, Wag.com, Yoyo.com and Casa.com. “We have worked extremely hard for the past seven years to get Quidsi to be … Read more

HARBOR FREIGHT

If you purchased anything at Harbor Freight Tools between April 8, 2011, and December 15, 2016, you might be eligible for a rebate. The company recently settled a class-action lawsuit that charged them with misrepresenting the discounts on products by misstating the pre-discount prices. Harbor Freight disputes this charge, but they still settled.

To file a claim for your rebate, you’ll need either a receipt with a “YOU SAVED” amount on the bottom or a copy of a credit card statement with Harbor Freight purchases on it. If you have neither of these things but you still purchased something from … Read more

Home-Depot-feat

Home Depot‘s in hot water again after accidentally publishing spreadsheets with about 8,000 customers’ transaction and personal data onto their website. While no financial information was leaked — like the 2014 data breach of 56 million Home Depot customers’ information — the data did include the names, mailing addresses, email addresses and information chronicling customer complaints. The leak was anonymously reported to Consumerist last week.

One of the most alarming aspects of this leak is how simply it occurred. In what appears to be a mistake, the spreadsheets were published on a Home Depot page that was able to be

Most-Anticipated-Games-of-2017-Feat

Being a part-time YouTuber, I kinda have to make it my business to know what’s coming up in the next year so I can budget for new games to record. With so many reboots and sequels and new properties slated for 2017, it was hard to pick just five as my top favorites, but I did it, and now we’re here. These are in no particular order, and I’m hoping each and every one of them does actually release in 2017 (you might remember my list from last year that had “ME: Andromeda” in it, too).

iOs-Versus-Android

Way back in 2003, I liked my Motorola RAZR so much that when it was time to upgrade, I just got a new RAZR. Nowadays, buying a new cellphone is a lot more complicated. If you’re upgrading to a smartphone for the first time, the options and choices can be a little overwhelming.

The top contenders are the Apple (iOS) and Android devices. Both brands have very vocal and passionate fan bases, so customer reviews can seem like a war between factions. So how do you know which one’s right for you? Here’s a breakdown of the differences between iOS … Read more

Each year we create an annual list of the top 25 (or so) list of some of the best Black Friday deals. Since we’re still awaiting a few major retailers to leak their ads, the list below is missing some key retailers, like Home Depot and Lowe’s. That said, the majority of these deals are some of the lowest prices ever on these items. What stands out this year is more than 400 Star Wars-themed items in roughly 50 merchandising categories, including Half Price Books – Star Wars Absolutely Everything You Need To Know Book (Hardcover) (details) for $15.99.
