Acorns: Investing Your Spare Change

I hate coins.

Although Acorns does not solve my dilemma when it comes to physical spare change, it provides an extremely valuable service that allows users to invest small amounts from each transaction made on linked credit or debit cards.

Apple Special Event - Sept. 2014 Rumors

Apple’s next Special Event is rumored to happen on Tuesday, September 9th. While the invitation to the event won’t be officially sent out to the media until right before the event's scheduled date, from various sources it looks as though September 9th will be the special day. As to what Apple will release at this event, it looks like the main product will be the rumored next generation iPhone, the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 is supposedly going to feature two new sizes of screen - a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch model. Along with larger screen sizes, it is safe to say that the new iPhone will be faster, thinner and have a better camera - along with keeping that eye-catching design that iPhones are known for.

In addition to AirPlay, Apple TV's come with several built-in programs and applications. Apple regularly updates and adds new programming to the Apple TV, but here is an overview of the current built-in applications on the Apple TV, courtesy of Apple.com and iLounge.com.
